Oh her eyes, her eyes make the stars look like they’re not shinin’
Her hair, her hair falls perfectly without her tryin’
She’s so beautiful
I recently had the opportunity to combine two commercial shoots into one- a few bridal hairpieces from the wonderful Yazbeth of Bloom by Arissia and makeup done by Misti of Makeup by Misti. They both needed some images of their work for their websites, so we shot in my studio and had a blast! Chantal and Rachel are both first time mommies and they look so gorgeous! I really wanted Misti to work her magic on me as well! However, with our 5 little kids running around, I was in charge of them while not photographing these beautiful girls. I hope you enjoyed getting a little taste of the shoot!
p.s. you may have seen one or two of these if you’re a fan on FB. If not- what’s stopping you? There’s always Sneak Peeks and fun convos over there, so check it out! I noticed there were 777 fans today— definitely a good number! But I’d love to see you there as well!

Jet and Max are such adorable little boys and so cute together as well. During our session we played, they did some wrestling and showed me their fun little toys and we walked all around Balls Falls looking for some different locations to shoot in. They did very well for their session and we had a lot of fun together! Jet especially was interested in having some fun pictures while Max was not quite as interested (typical for any two year old!). We still got some really cute shots of him though! Their mom Holly did a really nice job of dressing them in layers and textures so they could stay warm in the cooler weather and look like little models at the same time! It was really nice meeting all of you, and I know these prints will look amazing hanging up in your beautiful home!
One of the first shots we took: this one is being printed big for their living room!
Holly knew she wanted a little bit of a vintage vibe for their shoot to compliment their home decor. I had some old quilts, crates and other items, including an old Radio Flyer bike from my little brother and fresh red apples. It all tied together perfectly and gave the boys something to do so I could capture some natural moments!

This little family was just so much fun to work with! I’m going to be honest and admit- I really didn’t think a one year old could outrun me (especially since my one year old son is not even walking yet!) but Shae could. I was almost completely winded by the end of their session! However, they rewarded my hard work by giving me some new favorite images! Thanks to Vicki for making sure everyone was looking amazing in their stylish and coordinating clothing. I can’t wait to see all your images in print!

Another stylish inspiration board featuring clothing from Gap, Old Navy and Piperlime for a family of 6. I love the purple/plum/wine color that’s popular now, and just bought myself a sweater in this color for the winter! I only have a few family sessions left before the holiday deadline, but I’m sure there will be plenty of inspiration in the archives as well for co-ordinating your wardrobe for your next session! The key is co-ordinating (not matching), textures and layers. The last two really help to add so much interest to your images, as well as give you the option to get warmer or cooler depending on the weather at the time!

Lois did such a great job coordinating her adorable family for their session! I loved the colors and the layers she put together, and I was especially impressed that she knit the baby’s sweater that morning! Their session was a lot of fun and these kiddos did so amazingly well! I had a great time!

I absolutely loved having Anna and Colin in front of my camera…they were naturals! Anna is just so beautiful and they were relaxed, fun and full of good times! I love that Anna still has the same fun spirit she did back when we were in high school together! It was good to see you (again) Anna!

Sweet, squishy and so, so adorable. I absolutely loved my time photographing Luke and snuggling with him. What a little munch! He was so kind as to not do any of his business on me or on my blankets- he saved all of that for his mom and dad! There are some great outtakes from this session!
I had to end with this shot- seriously!?! It’s hilarious! He opens his eyes and looks at me like “Lady, watcha doing with that thing?!”
