A Lovely Family

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

I’ve been photographing lots of families recently. This session was a challenge because there were so many cool spots in the house that I wanted to photography, but with an 18 month old and a 5 month old you can’t always get the kids to go where you want them to! Luckily, they were really cute.

Check out this smile.

And I did get to use this cool chair for this cutie.

Who can resist a baby in a tie! The colors of this room worked perfect.

Love this one. I feel like this image could be the inspiration for a short story. It asks so many questions–like why did the photographer make me sit here!

The house was all ready for the holidays.

I did take some traditional (and not so traditional) family shots which I can’t wait to share with the family, but for the blog how about something a bit different. I love how the ceiling looks here.


Tea party cutie.

We started this session off with a sweet little tea party.

What a cutie.

And one playing with dad.


Got a swimmer.

I just finished proofing this session and I couldn’t help sharing just a few more.

Love this swimming stage.



I am thankful

for my wonderful job that allows me to visit and document children as they grow over the years. This was my third time photographing this family and I am so happy that we got to include mom in a few of these pictures. I just loved the light coming into the room at this moment, and somehow even though it was the very end of the session and the kids were getting hungry and tired this little moment happened. YEAH!

I love this serious look.

And this funny one that happened before mom and finished doing her hair. Still so cute.

And I love the giggle here along with the awesome colors.

More fun with mom.

And I love love love this sibling shot. Actually, I have a whole fun series of this moment, but just one for now.

I got the chance to photograph two families last week that I have been photographing since I relocated my business to NY almost two and a half years ago. I just love the opportunity to go back and see how the kids and families have grown.

Here are the adorable twins two years ago.

And here they are today! Now, they are a little bit harder to photograph together…

I love it when I can notice the little things that stay the same as they grown. Like this little look here…

Reminded me of this look back then..

Here is a very soulful look don’t you think?

We did get some giggles as well.

And her blue eyes were and still are just striking.

I can’t wait to see how they grow next year!


Hayden and Sara Got Married!

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

It was a wonderful wedding filled with family and joy. The wedding took place at Greystone Castle with a reception at the Linklean House in Caz.

Sara was pretty relaxed while getting ready and I think this portrait captures her fun personality.

I got to ride with the bridal party to the wedding. I love this shot of the back of the bus.

I try to make my formal portraits as informal as possible. While I was photographing the girls the guys were all lined up against the wall waiting and I just loved how it looked. So, I turned my light around and snap–the Guys!

This was the only wedding this season where the cake got smashed! I almost didn’t catch it I was caught so off guard and well, don’t ya just love the expression on Sara’s grandma in the back. Sara did get Hayden back which I believe you will see in the slideshow.

Love this family shot with mom and dad in the middle.

Best of luck to you Hayden and Sara—you make a beautiful pair.

To view a slideshow of some of the highlights from the day click below.The music on the slideshow was provided by Sara. She surprised Hayden by going into a studio to sing their song. How sweet.

Real Life with 4 Cute Kids

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

First a little bit of real life.This was taken at the very end of the session and probably will remind them most of this time in their lives.

The kids could sit still pretty well.

And a couple other images of the cuteness. Soooooo sweet.

gotta love these sweet smiles.

Okay last one. I have to save a few to surprise mom and dad with.


Yummy baby.

I love this one of her right in the center of the frame. I normally try not to include toys, but I like it in this one. And, she could have her first tooth by now what with all the chewing and drooling that I saw.

What a fun mommy!

And this is how this little girl gives a hug. I caught it from both angles.

Dad’s view.

And baby’s view!

There are a ton of cute ones from this session and once I get caught up I may have to share a few more.


Brace yourself

Computer problems continue

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

Well–this time it is more like blog issues. I have so many cute images to share, but my blog is not letting me upload them! I’ve spend as much time as I can on it for today, but I hope to address this soon. To those of you waiting for a little look just hold on a bit longer.

I will really need to get this fixed soon because my writing will not keep this blog going. 🙂
