Here she is…

The “G” family welcomed this beautiful, and I mean beautiful baby girl!  She was so perfect with her round little cheeks!  Congratulations to both of you, I really enjoyed spending the morning with you!

4 more inches…

Just 4 more and he will look me in the eyes!!  When did this happen? 

I found a couple images from the very first time Ryan met his little brother Kyle in the hospital.  The second is one of my very favorites.  His reaction to meeting him is priceless!  I am so thankful someone had the camera ready!  He is 3 years old in these…

I’m Back!!

We just got back from a photography workshop in Michigan.  I had a blast.  It was great meeting some fellow photographers and learning tons of new things!  Believe it or not I didn’t photograph one child during this workshop!  I decided it was time to step out of my comfort zone.  I feel most comfortable with kids and it truly is what I love to do, but must admit it was fun working with adult models.  I will share some images from the workshop soon.  I think it’s so important to constantly be pushing myself to take my images to the next level.  

I shot this lovely little lady before we left and I know her mom is patiently waiting her sneak peek.  I first photographed “J” when she was a newborn.  She was a BEAUTIFUL baby…just beautiful.  Well, not much has changed since then because as you can see she is simply adorable!  Her mom brought everything you see, right down to the marshmallows for sugar cubes (so clever).  What is more impressive is she put all of these things away for quite some time so that when we shot her session all the props would be new to her.  Way to go mom!!

Updates

I will be out of the office from Sunday-Wednesday.  I will have limited access to voicemail and e-mail.  I will try to check e-mail as often as possible but it may take me a bit longer to get back to you.  Thank you!

Also, July is completely booked.  Thank you to everyone who has reserved their session for 2009.  If you are waiting or considering a session with us this year it really is best to book early.  May, August and September only have a few remaining spots.  Again, I appreciate all of my repeat clients and look forward to meeting many new ones this year as well.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Photographer in the making…

My friend Colleen is a bit ornery, which is probably why all my little clients love her.  Our sons are on the same basketball team this year so we get to watch the games together.  Emma was sitting with her and picked up her camera and wanted to take a picture.  She couldn’t get it to work so Colleen told her that she had to stick out her tongue and scrunch up her face in order for the camera to work.   So, Emma  did exactly that…

Ha ha!  I nearly laughed my head off!!  This is her taking a picture of me…(if you look closely her tongue is still out)

…and this is the picture she took!

Pretty darn good if I do say so myself.  I’m loving the composition on this one. 

Thanks for the chuckle Colleen!
