Guess what?

blog12Their adventure has begun and I’ll be posting images of the new addition in a day or two.  Stay tuned…

She did it again…

I photographed little “K” a few months ago and one of my favorite shots (and moms too) was this one…


So while I was proofing this session and came across this one I thought, WoW!  There is something about this little beauty when she looks down and to the side that captivates me.  Just an innocence about it that I love…


Now, I have many, many favorites from this session.  Way too many to post.  I could have photographed her all day!   I’m looking forward to our summer session with her brothers.   The morning of the session mom e-mailed concerned about the amount of natural light and that the grass was going to be wet.  Well, I convinced her that the light would be fine and we just needed some props to get her off the ground.  I brought a chair and asked if she had an old wagon.  Luckily grandma had saved the wagon from when “K”‘s mom was little and we got to use it.  She also had the old wooden rocking chair that worked out perfectly. 

Here are just a few of the gallery full of beautiful images…

Look at those lashes!



Sooo big!





Happy 1st birthday “K”!

How did I ever get so lucky?

I was looking through the images I took of Emma the other day and came across these two.  Emma wanted her daddy to sit with her so I took the opportunity to snap a couple of them together.  I have to tell you that this thing, this business, this career, this amazing experience of being a children’s photographer started with him.  He encouraged me from the very beginning.  He keeps me organized, keeps my files backed up, loads software, he is my technical guru.  He is my prop finder.  He found the limb for Emma’s valentines, climbed several trees to find the branch for the newborn images, he helped our friends load and haul a full size couch to a field and then waited on stand by to come pick it up again.  He is my light tester.  He will let me practice new lighting and posing whenever I ask.  If I’m trying something new he is always willing to give up an afternoon scouting a new location or testing some idea….always. 

If I say, “Boy, I’d like to have that new camera, or wouldn’t that new lens be awesome,” the next day I’ll have e-mails from him showing me the best place to get it or some deal he found while searching. 

He’s and incredible dad!  We have been married for almost 13 years now and he makes me laugh EVERY DAY!  I’m thankful that God allowed us to find each other because I can’t imagine my life without him in it.
