New Headshots!

Whew....I am worn out! I had 11 mini-sessions the other day! was tough!! But it was so much fun too...I will definitely have another one before Mother's Day. I didn't fill one spot so I had my "assistant" turn the camera on me. *disclaimer* I had already shot 6 mini-sessions at this point and was not feeling very glamorous...but at least we had some yummy light :) I wanted some new shots to use for my website and blog so I did it anyway. I'm not sure which one I like me! Which one says "I want you to take my pictures :)" Leave me a comment and let me know!





Till next time,


k....back to editing pictures! I have sooo many sessions to edit but hopefully I will be able to clip through them pretty fast :)

A cool name for a totally cool chick! This is Natalie's best friend....also well versed in posing :) She totally rocked the shoot! Here are some of my favorites...

At one point the train came and we were stuck, plastered to a fence! A little scary, but we got a really cool picture out of it!

This is my favorite shot of the day...

I have 4:15, 5:15, and 6:45 still available for tonight! If you are interested, please send me an e-mail at

Catching up and Cleaning out the Hard Drive!

Boy, last week was a hard week! My poor little boy had a severe allergic reaction to something!! We still don't know what it was, but I have fallen behind on my work because I have been so busy tending to him. We have had to cut out all allerginic foods from his diet and he doesn't understand why. It has been a full-time job just keeping track of him and making sure he doesn't eat something that could possibly make him have another (and much worse) reaction. So everyone waiting on galleries from me, thank you for your patience! I am working late into the evening to try and catch up.

I am also trying to clean my hard drive! It is seriously overloaded!! I have so many pictures that either people haven't placed their orders yet or I want to blog and haven't had the chance. So tonight's blog is an attempt become one step closer to cleaning up the hard drive :) I photographed this family (who also happens to be some of my best friends and the little boy is Dylan's best friend) last October for the holidays (so what if I'm a little behind, LOL)! We had so much fun! They only have one child so I thought I would try out some fun, new, crazy things! They were down for anything so that made my job super easy! Here are some of my favorites...
This was my first attempt at texturing a photo...I am learning how to do this better everyday....but I really think it adds depth to certain photos and would look AWESOME on a canvas!
I told his parents to kiss eachother, and this was Timothy's reaction...heehee...I love it!Jumping off buildings is always fun for six year old boys!
Timothy being devious...
Another fun jumping picture!
This was totally unplanned...Timothy just started climbing the pole (being a six year old boy and all)...and they turned out to be some of my favorites from the shoot!
This might not be your typical family portrait but I love it! The reason I love it is because when my family is playing around like this, I try and take a mental picture so I can remember it always. I wish someone had a camera on us during these times so I actually had a real picture to look back at my family and remember the love and fun that we had together. I also think Timothy will look at this picture when he gets older and will be able to tell how much his mom and dad loved him...that makes my heart happy!
This one too!
A cute picture of mom and dad!

My favorite of the day! If this were my family, I would totally buy a huge print and hang it in my house!

Til next time (as I continue to clean up the hard drive!)
