Right now there are 4 pregnant women in my Cul-De-sac... I am due first.. nervous as heck... but really trying to enjoy as I'm certain it will be my last.. I really enjoy the fact that I can talk to 3 other women who are all either pregnant with their 1st, twins, and 2nd, babies.. I had the pleasure to photograph one of them and was just so happy with the images.. it is hard to capture without to much posing.. I am always trying to excel and do better with each session.. I hope you enjoy and certain B will when her little Christmas present arrives.... DSC_3233 DSC_3250DSC_3321DSC_3313 DSC_3314 DSC_3386 DSC_3334

Family Photos...

I often try to stress the importance of family photos.. I try my best to have them done at least once a year... I plan the outfits, get the husband on board... hope for a good day.. they are a permanent reminder of what your family was like each year.. we all change so much, especially the kids.. I had the pleasure of taking my friend Jodie's family photos this year.. I know that she networks and had many other photographers that could do this for her.. Im grateful that she trusts me to do this.. I also appreciate the time and effort that goes into the planning of a session.. I thought they are looked so sharp for there 2012 photos...

Mine, Light, Pantry, Licorice..

I have been pretty busy this summer with the boys.. I am getting near the end of pregnancy and getting tired.. most days I think to myself.. Why am I so tired? I forget im 32 weeks and have two boys.. I have not done a photo session with my kids at all but have tried to capture them as is... I feel like it is a constant battle to keep them out of the snacks, so why not go with it right.. well here is my 7 year old.. eek.. and almost 4 year old... DSC_0422 DSC_0416 DSC_0424 DSC_0439

A Home to remember...

What can you say about a family that continues to trust me to take photos of their growing family... The R family are moving on up and with that will move away from the home that they brought the babies home too.. Bittersweet right... I spent the morning with them in a yard that has been beautifully taken care of.. what a pleasure to see these kids grow and grow.. I look forward to meeting your new home..

Our friend James self published a book last year.. unknowingly to me.. and I'm sure a handful of our friends.. I have the book and should really buckle down a read it but have to find time between everything.. Magazines and Blog reading is usually as far as I get.. Yesterday last minute, he asked me to take his photo. I was honored to do this for him.. Please go check it out Programmed by James Carter
and check him out on Facebook

Cheers to you James and the success of your book..

Mother, Wife, Strenth.. Inspire...

I had the opportunity to photograph this incredible woman.. We often only see standard posters, or donate now signs.. I find it incredible that while battling something she never thought imaginable life goes on.. While talking with Kristi when I was taking her photos, I learned that she yes indeed has bad day's, but still has to be a Mommy, Wife, work and live everyday.. Thank you for inspiring me, and for letting me show people that you are so beautiful with a Wig, and hat and bald... DSC_4162 DSC_4146 DSC_4184 DSC_4201 DSC_4203 DSC_4236 DSC_4252 DSC_4344

This woman, and best friend to me and two others, has been by our sides as we all had our children.. I don't think that we could be more elated to return the favor.. to love her baby unconditionally already and give her everything she deserves.. I had the honor and pleasure of taking her photos tonight..although my friend, I feel pressure, I get nervous, and think to myself.. I hope I got a few good shots.. Preserving this special time as she becomes a Mother for the first time means alot to me... Enjoy my friend.. xo DSC_4113 DSC_4095 DSC_4087 DSC_4072 DSC_3998 DSC_3965
