This shoot has been a long time coming I tell ya! So long coming that even though I was sick all day leading up to the shoot I refused to cancel because I really wanted to get this shoot in! Don't get me wrong I wish I had a little more energy and could have made it last a little longer but there's always next time and these 2 are troopers! For now this was a win in my books! This shoot is of my absolute best friend and her sister. I would be lost without this lady I tell ya! This session was a great one and it certainly doesn't hurt that both these ladies are drop dead gorgeous! Next session ladies is in the fall we'll really rock it then I tell ya! ( well even more than you already did that is hahah!)
One of the greatest joys for me is to be privileged enough to be ab;e to capture so many cuties growing up right in front of my eyes! I started photographing Miss Aubrey while she was still in the womb and have thoroughly enjoyed seeing how much she has grown! 6 Months already and it feels like just yesterday we were doing her newborn photos. This little cutie had me smiling from start to finish she's full of personality and is not afraid to tell you exactly what she thinks haha! I had such a fantastic afternoon hanging out with her and her Mama! Here's some of the adorable Miss Aubrey I hope you fall in love with her as I have!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed little lady as much as I did!
Now that the "End of School Year" craziness is over let's talk about Graduation photos! I'm now offering Graduation mini sessions for all hose wonderful Preschool and Kindergarten Grads out there! Please don't hesitate to ask any questions or to book your session using the contact form below. These sessions will be a half long and will include a cap and gown (I have both a red set and a black set for you to choose from!) I also have a antique desk that I plan on using!

I will be offering for an additional $15 the option of adding a 8x10 collage print as well as 2 sheets (8/sheet) of wallet sized photos. (Must be paid in full before order is sent to lab) I look forward to seeing all those cuties!
This post is coming more than a little late as things in my neck of the woods have been quite chaotic! This session was proof that my mind was failing me! I forgot quite a bit of "important stuff" that I had left sitting out at home and then to add to my forgetfulness mother nature started taunting us with some nasty rain clouds that came rolling in cutting our session short. Even with all the craziness we walked away with some great photos and I'll never complain about hanging out with Miss Athena again. Every time I see her she steals a little more of my heart, this time she spent more time with me behind the camera instead of in front of it because she wasn't feeling it! Here's some of my favorites I hope you enjoy! I look forward to meeting the newest addition!
Over the weekend I had the awesome opportunity to meet this wonderful Little Man! While he may have only been a week and a half old he sure stole my heart right from the start! This little guy was the brightest eyed newborn I've done to date! He certainly had no interest in sleeping and just wanted to go what was going on... Did I mention how strong he is already too? He honestly just blew me away I'm excited to work with him again and document his growth over this year, he's already sucked me in! Here's some favorites of the very serious and very awake (almost for the whole shoot) Baby Wyatt!
Say what???? I simply can not believe how fast this little one has grown up! The last time I seen her she pretty much hated me, had no hair and wasn't sitting up by herself.... Well Now little missy is running has hair AND teeth and simply can not stay still for more than a minute! Talk about a fun session! We played, we ran we sat (not for long haha) we did hair... all in all a total blast I'm so happy to have been invited back for her one year session and then next week Mommy's maternity session! Her are some of our favorites.. I'm warning you... You'll fall in love!
Guess who got their 3 month portraits done? That's right the most adorable Aria! This session was a tough one for us to get booked because mother nature was certainly not on our side and we ended up having to re book a record 3 times!! Lucky us got this session in on the one nice day we had that week... I'm not joking when I tell you it snowed the day after. Never have been so happy to have been able to finish a session! Miss Aria certainly has grown since the last time I seen her and I can't tell you how wonderful it was to see those beautiful baby blue eyes and that smile that just suck you right in! Here are a few of my most favorite photos from our time together I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! I can not contain my excitement about tracking this little one's magical first year
Here's a fun then and now of little Missy from her newborn to now you'll see I'm really not kidding when I say how much she has grown!
I know this is coming pretty late but better late than never right? Our weekend at the farm was fantastic Little Miss loved having all the freedom and fresh air! Here are a few of the favorite photos taken... It occurs to me now that I didn't manage to get a photo with the cousins or the wonderful Easter dinner we had I guess we'll get those next time around hahah! Little Miss kept me too busy this time around!
I know I'm not the only one looking forward to going back again soon! Within a hour of being home Little Miss was already packing her bags again haha!
I'll be posting a more upbeat post later in the week but for now I'm consumed with these photos. This weekend was my first stay at the farm without my grandpa and was a awful reminder that it will never be the same. I found myself desperate to capture every detail before the inevitable change set in and bits of him started to disappear. Here is what I came up with... I suppose this is part of the healing process but I'm grateful that I'm able to capture everything.
"I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain
Go rest high on that mountain
Son, you work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and Son
Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered round your grave to grieve
I wish I could see the angels faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing"
I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling like this has been a never ending winter. Just when we get a week with beautiful temperatures and the snow's finally gone....BAM.... Mother nature just laughs and laughs! With this wretched weather it's given me plenty time to think about new up and coming sessions. I thought I would share some of them with you now and start getting those who are interested booked so when the weather decides to smarten up we'll be ready for it! So here goes!
