Now that I've posted some of my favorite client photos from last year I thought it would be only fitting to share a few of my favorite personal moments from the past year, and some "Mommy moments" even. These are also pretty hard for me to narrow down as 2015 was a big year of firsts in a lot of ways. you will have to bear with me as some of these photos may not be technically perfect but they all hold a place in my heart!
It's that time of year again! Time for me to take a look back at how many wonderful clients I've had and share some of my favorite photos from our sessions together. 2015 has been a amazing year for me, I've had some great sessions with past clients and even managed to meet some new fabulous clients along the way. I am most grateful to all my clients as they are the reason I am able to continue following this passion of mine. So! Here's a big CHEERS to ending off 2015 with a bang and even bigger THANK YOU to those wonderful clients of mine! Looking forward to an amazing 2016 with all of you!
So many great photos to choose from I could go on and on! Stay tuned in the next week or so for my top personal photos of 2015. I hope you loved them as much as I do! Happy New Year!
I simply love working with this family! Never a dull moment, and always sure to have a laugh! The fact that mom and I are friends is just a added bonus. Its crazy to me how much the kids have grown since our last session together... how does that always seem to happen with kids regardless of their age? I loved the location that we picked for this years shoot and think that we may or may not have to go there again, even though we missed most of the leaves it was still stunning to see! Here's a look at how our session went.
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 :)

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!
