The new website & blog are here!!!

So my new website with integrated blog is done!!!!  

Please update your information for this blog to  
All new posts and content will be there.  

Definitely come check it out.  There is so much new information presented in new ways!  I've changed almost all of the feature images.  If you have had a session with me in the last year it is highly likely one of your images is featured somewhere in the galleries, information and forms.

Almost ready!

The new website that integrates everything together is almost ready to launch!  A few of my recently booked senior sessions have already used the new forms, and they are fantastic.  The ease of use for both clients and my end is a dream.

There will probably be an outage of both the website and our emails for a couple of days this next week.  This blog will continue working and you will be directed to the new address once everything is live.  Please call during the outage.  919-585-6433.

Blake and Madison have taken over the bed after their shower, and they are busy checking out Blake's hurt finger. He stuck it where it shouldn't have been in the eliptical machine. The machine bit with two long ragged, but shallow, gouges along the inside of his finger along with a 'pocket' of skin along the side of it.

Fun Senior shoot

I love so many images from this shoot it will be hard to share just one!

I always try to get to know my clients prior to their shoot in case something really fun comes to mind.  Samantha was the winner of my End of Spring contest for a free session!  We were all very excited to meet for her shoot.  She is a girly girl who is very interested in reading, science and anthropology.  We definitely wanted to convey her personality in her shoot.  This image below definitely brings two of those qualities to life.

Ella & Saleah!

Ella's Touch
Ella of Ella's Touch is still doing wonderfully.  She is now much more alert with all kinds of jabbering and laughing.  She is so much more receptive to being held now too.  I took another crack at capturing her for her family so there will be lots of great images to visually celebrate her life.  We had a beautiful evening with nice soft light for her session.  

Check out these amazing eyes.  Her eyes are so pretty.  She loves to put her fingers in her mouth, suck on a passy & will play with her hands by clasping her fingers together.

This shot is perfection.  You can feel all the love and affection Tiffany has for her special baby girl.  Having lost her third child at 6 months old she knows, like most people could not possible fathom, how to love this baby girl, her two older kids & husband with everything she has in her.  She handles the struggles of life with so much grace and beauty.

Ella's big brother announced to me proudly, "My sister has lived longer then my brother!"  Despite all the inevitable sorrow her loss will bring they make sure to cherish each moment they can cherish.  Shouldn't we all spend much more time cherishing our family including all the 'insignificant' moments?  We really don't know what will happen tomorrow or next year.  For some of us, we too, will feel the pain of losing a loved one in our immediate family.   Please take time to cherish those you love.  And for all those mama's out there who don't want to get in pictures, please just do it!  Your loved ones do not care for perfection.  They care for YOU!

Tiffany was getting Ella to laugh here.  She smiled several times for us.  This one is one of my favorites with her looking back at mom as she smiles.

Sweet Seleah
Three of the last four newborns in front of my camera have smiled for me!  Seriously?!?!  It has never happened in the past, and now they all are doing it.  Maybe I'm learning some magic skills {with those beautiful mama's help!} with the newborns.  Saleah is adorable.  That hair.  She also has the loads of fine baby hair over most of her just like Blake did.  It brought back great memories.

We were even able to clip this flower in her hair without a headband.  Love it.  No distractions.  Just beauty.  Those pouty little lips are also perfection.

{So all my phrases on here remind me of Nike commercials I've seen in the past!  Just do it}

My Kiddos
In case you don't follow my personal blog, here are some images of a project I did this week.  The Inner Hooker is a pattern maker who's Fan page I found on Facebook.  She picked me out of about 25-30 people to do a test crochet pattern.  Yay, me!  Here is the second hat I made with this pattern test being modeled by Madison.  It was a great experience that I hope I can do again.  Maybe I'll start selling hats, scarfs and other things during the slow seasons.   Always gotta be busy...

Love this photo of Madison showing off one of the hair props I've gotten recently.  There's a whole small case full of them.  Those with little girls are welcome to use any of them during your session.  I have a few cool flowers that would look great on Mom too {I wore one to our church breakfast this morning}!
