Does life get much cuter than this ?

September 26, 2012 Leave a comment

So here are some pictures that I’ve posted to facebook, but thought I’d post them on my blog here too.  These pictures come from a few different sessions.   One of them from when she turned 11 months and the others are all at 12 months.    I love her eyes, her eye lashes, her cute little teeth when they peek through.   I’m in love with my little girl!!

Here she is at 11 months. 

I just love the little wrinkles you can see in her belly! 

She posed like this all on her own.

I wasn’t even planning on a photo shoot when I captured this one.  She was wondering about the front of our house and ended up on the

neighbors porch.  AND … I just happened to have my camera in hand and took some fun pictures of her. 

This is my favorite.

Love is in the air ….

September 2, 2012 Leave a comment

So, I had the chance to photograph my second wedding yesterday.   The phone call came just hours,  less than 3 – I think – before the wedding was to begin. This call caught me completely off guard as I was only going to be a second shooter for this wedding.   But that was not to be…. 

This was only my second wedding to photograph, and I loved it!   I didn’t have time to get nervous, and anxious.  

I realize now that there are things I wish I would have noticed sooner.  But oh well.   

Here are a few teaser shots ….  (the mother of the bride is a sweetheart and is going crazy over the teasers so far) 



The conditions were not ideal …. well mostly they weren’t ideal.  It was middle of the day, but luckily there was cloud cover, and they were darker clouds – the kind that produce rain.  We did get a few sprinkles right before the bride and groom came out of the Temple.   It was windy – to the point of having hair fly up all over, and ties were flipped back over the shoulders looking like a noose.   I was really terrified of how some of these would turn out.  But I was pleasantly surprised.   I really enjoyed spending this special day with this couple and their family. 


I think more and more, I really want to get more into doing weddings.  Why?  Well when I was married a little over 14 years ago, we were so poor and didn’t think to hire a photographer for the occasion.  We thought just having family and friends take pictures with a disposable camera (since that’s what my mother in law purchased to be used) would be good enough.   That’s the ONE REGRET that we both have, that we don’t have really great pictures from our wedding.  So I’ve been learning all I can to improve my ability to capture a great shot, so that one day I can take this to the next step.

1 week old and PERFECT ….

October 18, 2011 1 comment

It’s Been Awhile, but I’m back!

Here’s another post for this weeks theme over at I heart faces! I’ve been a little AWOL lately because I was pregnant most of this year and not doing much in the way of photo shoots. And I had my lovely little girl on Sept 6th just a mere 6 weeks ago and have had some fun taking pictures of her. And amazingly enough I have a few I could choose from for this, it was hard to decide but I really like this shot of her …..

So peaceful while she’s asleep.  And everything about her is just PERFECT!

And I’m hoping to be making a more regular appearance here now.  Trying to adjust back into life with a newborn

and not just any newborn but my 4th daughter and 6th child altogether.  That’s what I’ve been up to lately.

My First Wedding Photo Shoot …

March 2, 2011 Leave a comment

A long story on it’s own, but the short version goes something like this.  I knew the bride, asked her who her photographer was going to be and I happened to know that lady as well.  Asked the photographer if I could go along as a second shooter to this wedding.  I did this about three months before the wedding was to take place, or maybe it was just two months.  Oh well.   The day before the wedding, the photographer who was due Jan. 1st 2011 to have her 4th child had an appointment at which some procedures were done and she was starting to have contractions.  Uh?? What??
She called me that afternoon and asked me if I was still serious about going and wouldn’t mind being the “photographer”.  HUH?? Are you kidding me!!??   I was so NERVOUS to say the least.  Because HELLO, this was a wedding we were talking about.

Luckily the parents of the bride understood the delicate situation at hand and were very patient with me. And the bride and groom as well.

So after all was said and done, I discovered I had captured a few shots that I just love !!

This here collage I created of some of my favorite pictures from the day, is sized to be 20×23.

‘Tis the Season ….. for Photo Cards

November 23, 2010 Leave a comment




So I’ve spent a few more minutes or so with Photoshop and designed a few more cards.  Different Family Different Styles.

I’ve created them using different card sizes, and tried to use colors from the pictures themselves. (Mostly).  Now to work on my own Christmas Card.
