Frame Ideas November 27, 2007   

So, I was doing a little online Christmas shopping–it’s the only way I can seem to do any shopping this year–and it’s killing me because I am such a relish the season person. I am all about getting hot chocolate and going from shop to shop picking out gifts for everyone in the freezing cold weather! I guess this year I’ll just have to settle for opening up the windows and sipping Swiss Miss in front of my computer!

Anyway, I totally went off on a tangent there! As I was saying, I was doing some online shopping at Crate and Barrel and just happened upon their picture frames. They have some very nice, affordable frames–simple, elegant and pretty. I really like simple frames that don’t take away from the art inside of it. So if you are looking for a frame or two take a look at these frames–I especially like the Wall Frames, Tanner Wall Frames, and Tatami Frames.

I couldn’t blog without posting a picture–I am furiously working on Holiday cards for my clients, and I just ordered this one–it came back beautifully. Isn’t he a doll!

  Happy Thanksgiving!!! November 20, 2007   

This will be my last post for a little while as I prepare to enjoy Thanksgiving with my friends and family. This session was the last of my sessions for 2007–and what a great way to end!! We did the session downtown–which is perfect for older kids. There is so much color and texture on the downtown mall–I just love it!! First, is the little sister. . .what a sweetheart!

Next is her older brother . . . absolutely stunning!
A few together. . .

I really enjoyed working with these two–I haven’t shot a lot of older kids, so I wasn’t sure how things would turn out, but these guys were so pleasant and well mannered! They have a wonderful relationship and truly cared for each other–so nice!! I hope everyone has a truly restful and fun Thanksgiving! I’ll be back to my normal stuff next Monday.
  The Quest for a Christmas photo. . . November 18, 2007   

Anytime that you have more than one kid to photograph, it can be tricky! Making sure everyone is looking and has a nice expression, no one is closing their eyes, etc. Well . . . with this session, I had four adorable kids! I know their mom was worried that we didn’t get any good ones with all four, but we got a few! How could you not with such beautiful children??

We also got a few individuals–Love this one!
Look at this handsome guy!

This one just makes me smile!

Well, I could keep posting–they all turned out so great! But I have an appt. so I’ll stop for now! I should have one more post before Thanksgiving! Stay warm!
  PRICE INCREASE November 14, 2007   

I will be raising my prices as of January 1, 2008–both prints and session fee. This will NOT affect anyone who is ordering prints before January 1, 2008. If you have booked a session for 2008 before 2008, I will honor all of my 2007 prices for you. Also, if you are considering booking a session anytime in 2008–Jan-Dec., and you go ahead and book now–or any time before 2008, I will honor my 2007 prices (session fee and print prices). My calendar has just opened up for 2008–so now would be a great time to get a session booked for 2008.

  Christmas Continued. . . November 13, 2007   

Here is another Christmas mini session from last weekend. These little guys were so cute! It was an extremely cloudy day, but sometimes I think that helps colors be even richer. . .

Sweet, sweet baby!
Love this one!

Gotta go–furiously working on my holiday orders!

  Simply Stunning! November 11, 2007   

This is one of my Christmas minis from this weekend. It went so well! Isn’t he just stunning? His mom came with a couple different outfits–which allowed for some variety, even in a shorter amount of time! I LOVE this first one–the red and brown with the straw in the background.

His mom made his hat! She is so talented, and I am planning on featuring some of her hats here on my blog in the next few months–stay tuned! Hats are a wonderful way to add some fun and character–especially in the winter months!
Another favorite! Loving the wintry evergreen as the backdrop!
Thanks for a great session guys! I’ll have more to share soon!
  Fun Filled Fall Day! November 9, 2007   

This was a wonderful family–so fun and easy going! It was a great fall day! We got some really great shots! Playing in the leaves!

Mom and dad getting some cuddle time. Of course, some feet!
Auntie was visiting from out of town, so she came along too! We got a few really sweet shots with her and her niece.

Thanks you guys for a great session and patiently waiting for me to post this! Mini sessions are this weekend–I’ll have some to share next week! Have a wonderful weekend!

  Brown Eyed Boy! November 8, 2007   

This session was so much fun! This little guy was such a sweet heart. Mom had such great style, and dad was totally laid back! Here’s a few of daddy and his boy!

Looking out over the lake.

Look at his sweet little expression! Love the light in this one! Another fun one! Look at how happy mom is to be with her little guy! We had to take a little snack break!
Kid on toy.Dad on toy.
I LOVE this one! It was totally spontaneous–and I wasn’t sure how it’d come out, but I am very pleased!

That is all for now! I’ll be back soon with another wonderful family!

  D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!! November 7, 2007   

That’s what this baby is–absolutely delicious! I could post photos of him all day! He totally made me want one more!

Look at those eyes! Love how he’s holding on to dad’s hand here!
A sweet family shot!
Again . . . delicious!
I love me some good feet pictures! I really enjoyed this session! This little guy was so happy and fun to photograph! Mom and dad are totally in love with this little guy–for obvious reasons! Thanks for a wonderful session!
  Coming up for air! November 6, 2007   

In the midst of all of my craziness/holiday proofing I am coming up for a little air. It is one busy month! I have lots to share, but am being a little selfish. I wanted to do a quick post for my family who might want to see my kiddos. It has been a busy past few weeks around our house…
my youngest just turned FIVE! Bittersweet! We had a western themed party–10 kids in all!

He wanted a horsey cake–so I did my best. . .I think I’ll stick to photography!
Cleopatra….. and a grumpy little cowboy visited for Halloween!
My niece also had her bday–the big “1″!
We did a photo session to commemorate the occasion!

I LOVE her little sweater! I think they got it at JCrew Kids.
That’s a whirlwind account of the highlights of what has been keeping me busy aside from photography! I’m going to get back to it–lots to work on!
