I bought a new lens with macro capabilities and was dying to try it out, so I went in my back yard and starting looking around. Now, if there is one thing you should know about me it is this: I am NOT a gardener! The only thing growing in my preexisting garden areas are things that got there on their own. I have a cotton plant (no joke) and then there is this most amazing 3 feet tall weed with beautiful dangling berries. The colors of the berries; hot pink stem, vibrant green new berries, and deep purple ripened berries; was irresistible so I took my new camera on over and took a few shots. I love the colors, and think this set of three will make nice home decor for my kitchen!
Mandy and Dan are a wonderful couple who are so in love. I had the pleasure of being the second shooter at their wedding and of course, you know me, I like to show off! Here are some of my favorite shots I created. Enjoy!
I met a very energetic little boy this week. Ben turned one and his mother wanted to keep this memorable moment forever. We took him to Bee Tree Park and let him run loose! He loved stopping for rocks, leaves and more. I almost had to run to keep up with him, I wish I could bottle it up! The favorites capture his boyish smile, and his beautiful blue eyes!!
Last week I had the great pleasure of photographing one of my newest families. Little Avery just turned three months and we have begun his “First Year” series. Everyone in the family is beautiful and photogenic, and I had such a great time getting this little man to coo and smile. His sister loves chocolate milk, so instead of saying “chesse” we all said “chocolate milk”! Here are just a few of my favorites, and I cannot wait to see him more as he grows throughout the year!
I am so excited to show these photos. Sydney contacted me about a month and a half ago and asked me to do her son’s newborn photos in her hospital room. Of course I said yes! Dylan was born on Sept 7, and I had the pleasure of meeting him in person on Sept 9. These are some of my favorites from the session yesterday. It was very hard for me choose these because Dylan is so cute, and Sydney herself is an absolutely stunning new mother!
Model Search – I am looking for a pregnant woman to do a “glamour maternity” session. Must be willing to wear boudoir-esque clothing, allow me total creative control, and willing to allow any or all photos to be used for marketing purposing. Will have hair and makeup done and a free photo session with 1 free 11×14 printed for them. Stretch marks will be erased if you have any. Please submit your own photo and due date to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission deadline Sept 30. Two women may be selected.
I am always taking pictures, but never of my own family! It seems I always have time for everyone else. NO MORE!! Today was beautiful, and my baby girl was even more breathtaking! Lorelei is about to turn 5, going to be a big sister, and deserves to be showcased!!
Mark and I took a 3 hour excursion at Shaw Nature Center and allowed Lorelei to pretend to be “Alice” for the day. She loved winding in and out of the wild flowers, following the shaded paths and discovering all kinds of fun! Here are some of my favorites! Though, out of 260 photos taken, I chose 115 worthy of printing!! And that was making hard cuts!!
