celebrate! December 22, 2009   

Happy holidays everyone!  Have a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends!  See you in 2010!





  thank you! December 16, 2009   

Wow 2009 has been quite a year~fun and full and 2010 does not look like it is going to slow down one bit!  Our calendar is already filling up fast~with a few month almost booked out!  Please don’t wait to book if you have a date in mind…

I have been especially incredibly busy the past couple of months and have not had a lot of time to catch up on blogging.  I have been working with a very cool new publication that will be coming out this spring–which has kept me pretty busy,and I cannot wait to share more about it–trust me…it’s cool!   I’ll be sure to post more about it as soon as I can.

I wanted to finish out the year by saying thank you to everyone I have been blessed to work with this year.  You all have been wonderful, fun, and AMAZING to work with.  I truly love what I do!  I put together a little slideshow to documenting the year…enjoy!


  why not a winter session?? December 7, 2009   

Okay, so most people want sessions when the grass is green or the leaves are changing.  Valid point.  BUT, imaging the cuteness you could capture on a chilly winter day with an adorable knitted hat or delicious fur lined hood–add a pair of adorable boots and colorful tights and WOW!!  Oh the possibilites…I am not discouraging those summer/spring/autumn sessions–by all means, keep ‘em coming!  But, I am encouraging you to think a bit outside the box!  Why not create something unique to hang on your walls?!?  Be different from your friends and neighbors…be the leader instead of the follower.  Take a peek at some of the cuties I’ve captured in warm wooly sweaters and hats…

Consider booking a session this winter!!  It’s something unique!!

Now, go get a cup of hot cocoa, stay warm and enjoy this wonderful season!!

  fun in the fall leaves! December 1, 2009   

I had a ball with this sweet, beautiful family!  I had worked with them a few years back and then they moved away :(    Anyway, they were home for Thanksgivning and wanted me to take some family shots!  I was honored!  We found this FABULOUS tree and had SO much fun shooting in the bright yellow leaves!!




These sisters are just wonderful girls and what a great friendship they have!!


The adorable family!




Sweet, sweet, sweet!!




Love this one!  She was an absolute pleasure to work with!!  And beautiful too!


And look at this gorgeous little one!  Love those pink lips!




The adorable mom and dad–what a great couple!!


Mom and daughter…yes, I know they look more like sisters!

It was a pleasure to work with you guys–and wonderful to see y’all again!  Thanks for sharing your family with me for a bit!!
