I'm so excited to share this post with you! This session was a special one for me because Big Brother was my very first newborn I ever photographed ( and look at him now!!!) and now he's a big brother to a handsome little man. This mama is certainly going to have her hands full when they get older I tell you, I know I'm totally sucked in! The smiles from this session are brought to you via kinder surprise eggs,and zoo animals haha, ahhh the simple things in life! These photos are my favorite from our session together i can not wait to see these guys again we had so much fun!
This post is coming late but things have been busy so I'm trying to get all caught up now! I loved this session for so many reasons. Despite starting it off with a bit of rain things turned out pretty good for us. I fell in love with this location almost immediately, the colors, the trees, the creek... everything. Having 2 pretty fantastic models.... well that was just a added bonus haha! I've been photographing this little one since she was in her mama's belly and its been amazing to see her grow. I love her smiles and giggles and the fact that I can understand her when she talks now, but time really does fly by too fast. Here are a few of my favorite shots from this shoot, I hope you love them as much as I do!

I'm so excited to share this blog post with everyone because I feel like little man made us wait for forever to finally meet him! I have no complaints about this guys session what so ever what a little trooper, he was so good we even managed to finish early! From minions to dirt biking this little guy is just too cute! I can't wait to see what the rest of our year has in store for us! With out further delay here is a few of my favorites, I hope you enjoy :)
How can you not fall in love with him?
It's that time of year again, time to start thinking about fall photos and what outfits to wear to make your session perfect. Here are a few tips and ideas to get you going . These are just suggestions to get the ball rolling for you, please feel free to add your own style and flare! All photo boards are compliments of http://www.thedatingdivas.com/ for anyone who wanted to go looking for more ideas, you can also check Pinterest or Google image search:) Here are a few quick tips to take into consideration while choosing your wardrobe:
-Choose coordinating colors. A good start is picking a base color (a neutral color) and then choose 2-3 colors to make it pop. Don't be afraid to mix colors or patterns as long as they coordinate with one another, and remember that having the 3-4 colors is just a guide not everyone has to be wearing all of the colors.
-Don't wear any clothing with distracting logo's, brand names, or characters. Doing so only distracts the attention away from the subject, which then defeats the purpose of getting nice family photos done!
- Don't forget about footwear!! No one wants to see ratty old sneakers or flip flops in your photos! Remember a photo lasts a lifetime wear nice shoes! :)
-Layering or accessorizing is a great way to add not only dimension to your photos but your own style as well! Don't be afraid to wear that hat or scarf or jewelry! These photos are to showcase you and your family, so be unique, put your own flare into it!
- Last but not least wear something COMFORTABLE! If you or anyone on the family is uncomfortable in what they are wearing that discomfort is sure to show through in the photos.
Here are some fantastic visual aids for you :)
As always if you have any questions concerns or would like to book a session please use the contact form at the bottom of this post! I can't wait to get these sessions rolling!
Ok that's it! Time has to stop going by so darn fast. How is it that I have another Grow With Me baby hitting the one year mark? Seem like yesterday I was meeting this guy for the first time an now he's running and talking and signing... *sigh* A little man all his own. Its been amazing to watch him grow from "Mr. Concerned" into "Mr. Smiley"... oh and those curls! Just when I thought his hair couldn't get any curlier it did! Just adds to that personality of his.
Below is a photo we took during his newborn session compared to his 1 year session. Honestly how do they grow up so fast?
This is coming a little bit late but like I always say better late than never right? The weather was gorgeous for Miss Blake's shoot and we even managed to get a few smiles despite how serious she always seems to be. Even with her "blue steel" look she's still cute as ever! Here are a few of my favorites from our session! I can't wait to see her again in few months!
In spirit of my year coming to a close with a few clients of mine I have decided that with all the cuteness that comes with Baby's First Year I want to include more in the package! In order for this to happen there is going to be a bit of a price increase but I promise you it is worth it! Instead of charging separately for birth announcements I am now including a bundle of 25 with the purchase of the package. I will also be out sourcing cakes for the cake smash session from a local business ( instead of trying out my cake decorating skills! Learned my lesson the hard way with that!) Along with that at the end of our time together I will now be including a custom made hard cover photo book with photos from all the sessions as a way to have an amazing keepsake of that very special first year! Payment plans are available but $300 is due a time of booking, the remaining amount we can discuss which options will work best for you! I'm beyond excited to be able to include these for you. Gift certificates are also available as well, this makes a perfect gift for any new mom! (ask me how!) If there are any questions please use the "Contact Me" button at the bottom of this post!
Like I've mentioned before this session was bittersweet for me, it meant that our year together had already come to an end! Not only is little missy one of the sweetest girls I've ever met but as it turns out she's also one of the cleanest little girls I've ever met! There certainly wasn't much cake smashing going on at all! The icing was good but that is about as far as Miss Aria's interest went! Not worry though... she's a professional and we were ab;e to still get some adorable photos even if cake smashing wasn't her thing! I look forward to seeing her grow and can't wait to see what our next session will have on store for us when ever that may be!
She truly is too cute for words! Until next time Princess....
I'm excited to announce that print packages are here! I've decided to do 3 different print packages and have bundled them in a way that saves you money. I still have a la carte options but having these packages will get you the most bang for your buck! Choosing to have your photos printed through my lab guarantees the utmost quality and you won't be disappointed. I know I"ve got photos printed elsewhere and on more than one occasion have been incredibly disappointed that the colors and quality were not what I had seen on my screen . By ordering through me you will not have to worry about any weird color profiles or quality issues! Here are the 3 packages broken down, if you have any further questions please don't hesitate to use the "Contact Me" button at the end of this post. When it comes to the packages payment must be made in full prior to myself putting in the order. Below are just the sizes included, you get to choose which images are to be printed at which size. You are also able to add "a la carte" options to the packages as well if you would like additional prints, this is something we can discuss when talking about what package is best for you.
