Truckin’ It {My Little Guy| February 2013}

I’ve been wanting to get this post up for a few weeks now, but some how personal photos tend to fall by the wayside when things get hectic. I always get around to them, but not as quickly as I’d like. I promised myself I would change that this year, I’m feeling positive!

Any whoozle, since the fall I’d been researching what my next lens purchase would be. I went back and forth for months but finally made up my mind and chose a new 85mm. I basically stood at the window waiting for the UPS man to arrive and almost hugged him with excitement when he did! So… first things first take my little guy out to test my new gear! For things like this I have to plan ahead and make sure he’s well rested and that I have some exciting bribery ready for when we finish up. I’d give him a 6 our of 10 on the cooperative scale for this quicky shoot, but hey for a 2 1/2 year old that’s not half bad.

So for now I leave you with my little guy, a 28 year old Tonka truck and some amazing bokeh from my new addition!



Cupcakes & Lemonade, A Picnic for Three| { The D Family}

I had been thinking of this set up for a while, slowly buying pieces to create my teepee and waiting for the perfect opportunity to put it to use. I booked this session back in January and I knew from the beginning it would be a great fit for them! We shot just a few days before the first day of spring and our weather couldn’t have been better, with a cold front on its way out we had no humidity and blue skies!

I’ve had the pleasure of shooting a few 2nd birthday sessions recently and they are just so fun. These tots love their cupcakes and I really adore capturing their enjoyment. I mean hey, I’m pretty excited when some one puts a delicious cupcake in my hand too!!! Happy spring and I hope  this helps get you in the springtime mood!!

A Visit From Michigan |{The M Family}

I was originally supposed to shoot these two kiddies last August when they were down visiting over the summer, but with a mess of bad weather we had to cancel until their next visit. I was thrilled to get a call from their Grandma a few weeks ago to let me know they were headed back down and wanted to set up a session. We had a wonderful time shooting last spring with their other grandkids and I knew this would be no different! They are so fun, relaxed and just a joy to be around. I couldn’t be more grateful that they let me capture these wonderful memories for them!


Handsome Baby “G” |{12 Days New}

Working with these little loves never gets old and I truly adore it. This handsome little guy was such a breeze, with the exception of a little snack he was snoozing the whole session!
