For Sara

This session will be a memorable one, little "O" got a war wound from the session, but surprisingly Tic Tacs came to the rescue and he was in a good mood after that. I just had to post a few.. seriously such a cute family. Mom is an awesome photographer and she makes me laugh so hard. Check out her site HERE.
The thing I also loved about this session is that they were totally real with their little one and played with him, I love that. I got to catch some fun moments.

Just letting everyone know that my pricing with change Jan '09, if you want my pricing now just make sure you book by the end of Dec. to get my current pricing.

Another cute family...

I swear I get to photograph such cute kids all the time. Plus I have photographed these kids twice before so it's so great to see them grow and hear about what is going on in their lives. I love their mom too so that makes it so much fun and a lot less work:)

On a side note their mom told me about a trick to keep my kids from getting naked at bedtime! I ran home and tried it right away! Now I don't have to pull out the duct tape! So the trick is to get those footy pajamas and put them on backwards. I cut off the feet because they wouldn't fit right if I didn't. My kids woke up in their clothing and most importantly with diapers on! That was a very happy day!

On to the photos...


Littile Petey didn't want anything to do with the studio but as long as we headed outside to hang with all the dirt and rocks he was more than happy to oblige. Doesn't Miss Netty have the most beautiful look. I don't know what it is but I love it, maybe the rosy cheeks and lips? What adorable cuties.

I don't know what it is about this photo but I simply adore the feeling of it..

"H" Family

What a beautiful family of 6 kids, we had a great time together, dodging all the photographers at the Star Mill. Thanks for all the fun!

I love this embarrassed smile on his face...


I would like to post their whole session really but I can't. I feel like this week has been insane, all I have been doing is shooting and trying to get my kids to continue to take naps. Now I have to find time to edit and do ordering! Oh man, so if you are waiting for something please be patient and I will love you so much!

Okay onto the good stuff, more photos of these amazingly beautiful children. Again I loved this session for so many reasons, this is the kind of session that I day dream of, lots of funs clothes, willing subjects, just a fun, creative time. I really love my job, as hectic as it may be I feel SO LUCKY.

Thanks again for bringing your little ones in to see me Anji!

My Family part 2

Just have to say thanks so much to Jess for making our pictures such an easy experience. Loved them all.
I just love how my kids were so happy and natural in this session. Having your family pictures taken can be a stressful experience, finding the right photographer, right clothes, right location, and then praying that your kids won't blow a gasket along the way is also fun as well. I have learned to just be myself and let people in, it shows in the pictures if you are tense, nervous, stressed, etc. I love when families just let go, play with their kids, pretend I am not there, I know it's a vunerable state but nothing will make your pictures look better and add that true emotion. I could go on and on about this, but I won't!
Okay so anyways just a few that I loved...

this one kills me of them holding hands, I thought there was no way they would do it under pressure!

sharing the curiousity of a gross bug...

This is perfectly them, Tate with his crazy faces and Chloe with her cheeky smile.

Anthony & Tate, they have such a strong bond, I love it!

Had to post more from this session~ Enjoy.
p.s. 3 and 1 year old in the studio, always way stressful and they were pretty darn good!

she did pose number 2 all on her own, watch out mom and dad.

for Andrea...

Okay so I had a crazy busy weekend, I realize I just don't have a lot of time anymore for a social life! Tis the season! Also, my kids have decided this week that they don't want to take naps anymore, I think I might cry for a while.

Okay so onto this cute little one... he has SO much personality and is so happy. Don't worry mom we got lots of smiling ones! Enjoy. Off to take some ibuprofen and back to editing. lol. I sound like a whiner.

My family urban style

Just a few because I need to remove my eyes from the computer. My good friend Jess from ByJessPhotography took these for me and I can't wait to post more. She really captured our family.

I wanted this picture of the red stairs and green building so bad and I love it. Chloe without a hat! Can you believe it? Oh and p.s. don't think I am going to be showing up to your session looking like this! Thank goodness for photoshop, lol.
