I thought you might all need a laugh...

At my niece and nephew's expense! PHOTO OF THE DAY!!! Seriously I probably should do something a bit "nicer" but who needs nice when you have fun?! LOL
Just for memory purposes, this occured only because I have recently discovered that it is physically impossible for me to go cross eyed... so this was Shannona nd Justin's attempt to see if they could! LOL Shannon said it was painful!

I am often asked by my clients....

Where can I find unique clothing for my children's pictures.

Well I have two sites that I have obtained permission from to share their information with you.

  1. www.PinkTaffyDesigns.com
  2. http://www.barnesportraitclothing.com/
  3. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_12&listing_id=19043715
  4. www.etsy.com *just do a search on hats or beanies for kids and you will be amazed at how many cute items you come across!

Those are just two that I adore their items... please by NO MEANS am I suggesting that they are the only way to go. Most of my favorite photographs are of plain black or white tops and jeans or a cute hat and no shirt on boys... sometimes the more simple... the better.

However, like I said, I have had a couple of clients ask me for suggestions and I thought it would be helpful for you if you had to completely unique places to check out!

A girl after my own heart!

Don't worry Carson your sneek peek will be up soon! This picture was like 5 minutes into the shoot before he knew we were going to have fun... he was quite the little poser!
They have a new fort in their basement that is SO cool... every kids dream!

I think she may have been talking about how cute Tyler was in this picture below... look at that smile :-)

I have been waiting for about 3 months to do this families photos... let me just say... it was WELL worth the wait. We spent 3 hours at this shoot and it felt like we were there for about 15 minutes. I knew when Kylee called me a few months ago that we would be a perfect fit, she has the same ideas as me as far as capturing kids as they are... I havea terrible time with photo shoots where I have to intentionally pose kids and "make them" do certain looks... it's just not my thing... this shoot on the other hand... JUST.MY.STYLE.

I am breaking this up into two different posts because I absoultely loved all these pics of Chloe in her little tutu, but her big brother Carson deserves his very own post too! This family had the most perfect home for photos... some incredible natural light available and completely intoxicating personalities made for an overwhelming amount of great photos! Just what I like!
I consider this family friends already and look forward to watching these two kiddos grow! I have so many ideas for the future pictures... we are FOR sure doing something when we have more fun snow like we talked about Kylee! Please give Carson and Chloe a big hug for me, we are working hard to get your final proofs edited and up very soon! Can't WAIT for you to see them.
Be sure to head over to Tyler's blog for more of the sneek peek! (Just click on that link)


Well I attempted to do Drake Christmas photos... yeah NOT.SO.MUCH. That sweet little guy who would just so willingly smile and play with me and the camera is ON.THE.GO.!!! His session was an absolute no go! Just wanted to throw a couple up and we are going to attempt this with the little climber again when I return in a few days!!

On with the slew of pics...

Kaylee .... so big already and so cute.
Devin & Ava
Paige & her daddy! I see where she got those eyes!!

I have been an editing fool. I cannot believe how insane this weekend was, and how many incredible photos we took. Tyler (my assistant) and I worked from sun up on Sat. to Sun down on Sunday. It was the best weekend ever and after every shoot we were like this is crazy... how do we keep getting so lucky that every session is so awesome?! (Be sure and click on his name to visit his blog for more sneek peeks of the same sessions! They are awesome!)

This family is a friend of mine who is a graphic designer. She has done work for both Tyler and I now and does an incredible job and has such a great eye for design. Tyler will be posting his new cards soon so be sure to stop over for a view of those! So cool! Jess, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your hard work and talent on helping us both "brand" our businesses. Your patience and keen eye are a gift and we are both very lucky to have you to do some awesome work for us! Thank you again.
Onto the important stuff! Jess has two sisters and she had the great idea to get everyone together for a family photo. Her sisters each have two little ones and Jess has one on the way, so be sure to watch over the next few months for Jess' baby pics!!! I know I'm rushing things Jess, but did I mention I can't wait to meet little... what's the name... george??? Something like that!
You will likely recognize little Paige the blue eyed blonde cutie and her baby sister from her newborn session... how is ALREADY setting up... wow... time flies! She was my 3rd 6th month old of the day and such a sweetie!
Lastly... Devin and his new baby sister Ava. How precious is she?! Alanna (sp?) I cannot wait for you to see the pics of your little sweetie. I seriously had to make myself stop snapping shots of Ava. For some reason everyone has little boys and I was so thrilled to have a little girl to photograph!

The start of a whole slew of posts!!!

I had the busiest weekend EVER... My email in box is chock full so if you are waiting for a phone call or email return from me, I am getting there!

I can't WAIT to show off these pictures from this weekend. First of all I got a new "baby"... no, not the one im posting about, but a new lens. For those of you who know anything about SLR camera, I got a fixed lens 50mm 1.4.... I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this lens.
Ok, so now that im done being excited about that... lets get to the important stuff...
This is Jered! He probably looks a bit familiar because he has been on my blog before. He is part of The Bebe' Collection (a year of photos every three months). He has grown SO much and his little personality is emerging into such a fun little guy!
He was an absolute charmer for his session and was just so willing to throw the smiles out anytime! I think this age (6 months) is great for photos. They can't go anywhere but they are so animated.
I know Jered's mommy is patiently waiting for this sneek peek so I better get it posted! Shelby they tured out AMAZING... I can't wait for you to see the rest!
