Tatum turns 1!


I love my Watch Me Grow babies!! I love that I get to watch them grow and develop from a tiny wrinkly newborn to a giggling toddler.  It is bitter sweet for me however.  I get to see them every 3 months for the first year of their lives then they turn one (YAY!!) and they aren’t coming to see me as often and I miss them (BOO)

A little over a year ago Tatum’s awesome parents contacted me to photo their tiny human and it made my year. At his last session for his 1 year photos they made my year again by telling me they want me to continue to photograph him every 3 or 4 months 🙂 I seriously got teary eyed. I love this little family and I hope I get to document their lives as their family continues to grow.

April 24,2013


April 24, 2013 is the last time I blogged and that was just a catch up blog. Every year I tell myself I am going to be a better blogger, I will blog each week. And every year I don’t *blogger fail*

I wish I was good with words, I am not. I wish I was “quippy” (you know snappy come backs and jokes off the top of my head) but I am not that either. What I am is shy, introverted (I work on that on a regular basis, after all being a business owner if I don’t put myself out there I won’t have a business) quiet and a thinker. If I am photographing you and I am not talking much its not because I don’t feel the session is going well its because I go in this photo mode and my mind is constantly thinking about lighting, angles, poses, that one blade of grass that needs to be moved…. you get the idea.  I sink into what I am doing and I choose to believe it is a good thing it just shows that this is my passion and my heart and I put all of that into each session.

On to a personal note… My baby (okay not literally baby but she is my youngest so she will always be my baby) turned 7 recently. I spur of the moment decided I needed to take photos, it had been cloudy and dreary and warm all day then the sun came out briefly so I grabbed her put her in a cute outfit, grabbed my awesome new to me chair and headed to a field. While taking these photos I came to the harsh realization that she isn’t a baby any more. She is growing into the most awesome girl ever. She loves church and gymnastics (recently moved to the competitive team) she is a little book worm just like her momma, she is giving, caring, cute and sassy, she has the most hilarious personality (I bet she grows up to be “quippy”). She is more than I had hoped my daughter would be and she is only 7.

Family on the Fourth


Every 4th of July I get the pleasure of visiting with family I only get to see that time of year, and for the past 2 years I have gotten to spend a couple hours with Rachel and my camera.  This girl is so photogenic and I believe she can read my mind as to what I am wanting her to do.  I had so much fun with her (even though it was so so so hot this year) and I managed to get some awesome shots!  I am in awe of her.  She sings, plays guitar (among other instruments), she is super artistic and just a sweet girl.  This year I had kind of a theme I wanted to go with for the photos and asked her to bring her guitar and some hippy type clothes and she knew just what I wanted.  I am no where near done going through the images and editing them but I couldn’t wait to post these.  If I could I would post every one of them but that might be overkill 🙂

You can check out more of my stuff on my facebook page and I even offer specials over there 🙂

Senior Ambassador


I recently had a couple sessions with Taylor, she is a senior ambassador for me and we had so much fun.  She is beautiful and so sweet and made my day.  The second session was soooooo hot but she totally rocked it and the images turned out great if I do say so myself 🙂  If you know a 2013 senior who would like a chance at discounted senior session and a chance to earn free prints then send them my way and maybe they will be picked to be a senior ambassador.  Any way take a second and check these out 🙂

As usual you can see more of my work on my website or check me out on facebook.

Lovely baby bump


Last week I had the privilege of photographing a wonderful mom and her 4 boys, I also snapped a few of her niece while I was there 🙂  It was a long hot day that involved lots of mud and bugs, tons of laughs and a mid session break to shower off all the mud.

With each of my pregnancies I always wanted the cute baby belly and to “glow”  instead I got the puffy face, massive swelling in hands and feet and my baby belly was NOT cute lol.  This Momma to be is absolutely beautiful and she is finally going to have a little girl in a few weeks and I can’t wait to  meet her!  With 4 older brothers no body better mess with her 🙂 I had a hard time deciding which photos to put on here since there were well over 100 of them to chose from.  Be sure to check the others out on my web site 🙂  Don’t forget to head over to facebook and “like” my page.

Spring sessions


Spring sessions are so much fun.  I love getting out and taking photos this time of year.  All the colors of the blossoms are breath taking and everything turning green.  The only draw back is all the pollen!   This year is really bad, there is a lovely coating of yellow/green on all hard surfaces.

I recently got to spend some time with 2 beautiful young girls taking some photos for them.  We went to a local church and there were flowers every where and I believe it was the perfect location for spring photos.  It was so much fun and I was so glad I was able to capture them.  Here are a few of their photos.

 

As always you can see all my info and portfolio on my full website or on facebook.

I am trying, I really really am.


So last week I made the “resolution” to blog weekly because I knew daily wasn’t going to happen.  Here it is week 2 and I am having a hard time even doing weekly…. Don’t get me wrong, I have so many thoughts in my head and some of them are even pretty cool, if I do say so myself.  It is just hard for me get them out sounding as cool as they do in my head.

I will start with this thought.  Today I was trying to get all this boring office stuff done like data entry, typing up 2012 price lists, updating my portfolio galleries on my site, and finishing editing a session and I was totally distracted with the pretty sky.  So I said to myself “self, why don’t you take a pic with that fancy iphone camera you got there?” So I did and this is what I got….

Then I went out to get the mail and got distracted by these little red berries on this bush by the mail box.  So i said to myself “self, why not take a pic with that fancy iphone camera you got there” so I did and this is what I got..

Then when i got home from picking my daughter up from school I was hanging her bird feeder she made in school in the tree in the front yard and I got distracted by the buds in the trees, yes I said buds in the trees in JANUARY!!! I said to myself  “self, why don’t you take a pic of that with that there fancy iphone camera you got and your little macro lens you got for it?”  so I did and this is what I got…

So needless to say I have discovered iphoneography and am addicted.  I imagine there will be more blog posts to come featuring my photos from my iphone 🙂  I hope every one has a great rest of the week!!!
