Playing Catch Up!

I’ve been so busy this month that I haven’t been on top of posting my sneak peaks to the blog. So I thought I’d go back and post a selection of images from some of the sessions that I’ve been very busy with this month!

This little guy stole my heart. At one point in the shoot I was sitting on the floor trying to get shots of them sitting on the floor, and he just came and sat on my lap to hang with me. 001 003

Here he was coming up really close and looking into the lens of my camera!005 007l 010

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!

After this shoot, I have officially banned fake snow from my studio, but then when I look at the beautiful pictures I have second thoughts on this decision. But seriously, I’ve been cleaning up snow for a week, and it’s still there.

Happy Holidays from the Trenches

This holiday season has been a definite change for me with my business. I opened up a new studio space, which has been wonderful and challenging all at the same time. And it's also been the busiest time that I've ever had with my business. I think I've done more photo shoots in the last 3 months than I've done in a year some of the years I've been in business. So with that has come some major growing pains! I've been struggling to keep up, and would like to apologize to the clients who have felt the impact of that with my messing things up, and not being 100% on top of everything. Who knew it would be so hard to be a mom to 4 kids, and run a full time business on the side! I've also been finding solutions through the chaos though. I recently hired an assistant to help me with editing photos, which has been a life saver for me! So thank you to all of you for bearing with me as I struggle to find a way to balance it all. And thank you, thank you, thank you, to my wonderful, loyal and sweet clients who keep returning to me year after year, and who refer your friends and family to me. There is no greater compliment, and I love being able to capture the growth and stages of all of your beautiful families. It is a delight to be able to meet so many unique and amazing families. I also thought I would share some new photos of my little guys (who are getting to be not so little any more)! I shot these photos on a whim on a sunny afternoon last week, and just grabbed the boys in what they were wearing and went across the street to take some shots for my Christmas cards (since I never quite found the time to do a holiday photo shoot of my family like I had planned!) I hope that all of you have a joyous and blessed holiday season.

Old Friends

This family has been coming to me almost since I first opened my business, and they feel like old friends now. Their 3rd little guy was just a baby then, and now they have 2 more little ones. Their newest addition is one of the sweetest babies I’ve ever met! She was sooo smiley, and just got tired and closed her eyes and conked out right in the middle of the photos!

And the adorable headpiece baby is wearing, and the great flowered headband her big sister is wearing were made by the amazing Fancy Schmancy Boutique.
