Something New.

 I was asked to do and indoor more "editorial" photo shoot. It was very fun to try something new. This adorable little girl is 4 years old and interested in modeling. I was amazed! She was so cooperative and fun. Let me remind you that I have a 4 year old and our shoots are nothing like this.
I think little Blythe will make a fabulous model.

 Thanks to my awesome friend and fellow photographer Kelly Cannon for lending me the soft box! I think I may need to get a set of my own.

Eight! Really?

3 years ago there was a little boy cruising down my street on his big wheel.... now his family moved back this week and I can't believe how grow up he is. So cute... I mean handsome!


This is my cute sister in law and her family. All of our kids our about the same ages so we have lots of fun playing.

Such Cute Kids!

 These kids were so fun to photograph. So cute and cooperative. G just turned 8 and we did some in his suit too. He is such a cool laid back kid.

T was so sweet he loved the old barn and playing in the weeds with me.

Little P wasn't so sure about me, but she was more than content with her brothers by her side. Good thing this little beauty has 2 older brothers to watch out for her.

And one of my favorites from the day... she did this pose herself, so sweet.

Baby Bode

Isn't this little guy to die for?! The head of dark hair and blue eyes... ADORABLE!
You can see where he gets his looks... his mom is one of my favorite clients to photograph because she is so stinkin' photogenic.
 I love snuggling with a newborn. ... so sweet!
 Then there is his proud big brother... I know right? Blonde hair.. next to his little brothers black hair!? So cute!

The Beauty of a Mother

Look through the pictures you have "archived" for your family. How often are you in the pictures? My sister once said to me, when referring to my family blog, that I needed to post pictures of me too and not just my kids. Mother's are definitely under represented in photos.

[muh-th-er] -noun
1. One person who does the work of twenty. For free.

Mother's you deserve to have your picture taken. Mostly if you have ever looked in the mirror only to see that your shirt is stained and has baby spit up dipped down your shoulder, you forgot to put make up on and already went to the grocery store, and you have a baby booger stuck in the wispy hairs hanging out of your pony tail... then you deserve to have your picture take.You are smart, funny, patient, hard working, and BEAUTIFUL. Women are reluctant to get their photo taken alone... Let me tell you what I think about that. I don't care if you don't use this photo until your funeral. You need a good photo of you as a young mom. The mom that your kids will always remember!

Can you tell I have been thinking about this a lot. I have. Mother's Day evening I couldn't fall asleep, I sat thinking about this idea of gathering a group of women and taking their picture. Well the response was low to say the least.... so I did more coaxing. I am so glad that I still did it. These women are beautiful! And I had a lot of fun taking their photos.

I hope when you take photos of your cute kids you realize the reason your children are so cute is because they are you! They were created from you... if you think your kids are cute (and everyone does)... then you should feel beautiful! Forget being moderate in the estimation of you beauty... Own it. You are beautiful!

Take time for yourself. This was such a fun evening. I would definitely do it again. If you are interested in gathering a group of women for a photo shoot contact me at and we can work out the details. I would be willing to do it for a very reasonable cost.

Summer Work Shops

Have you always wanted to know more about photography and learn to take better photos? Now is your time. I have a couple workshops set up. The June session is for beginner photographers that want to shoot in auto mode but want to better understand how Auto Mode works to get the best pictures possible. The July session is for those that want to take more control over their images. Aperture Priority Mode is the first step that I took towards learning to shoot in Manual Mode. Email me right away to reserve your spot in the class!
