They Did It!!!

April 23, 2013

What a great group of beautiful, intelligent and fun young women! To celebrate college graduation, and one last ‘hoorah’ before parting, these lovely ladies came for a session. We started off with the traditional ‘grad’ photo, then off with the ‘cap’ and onto some fun friend pics. They were all very brave, to go out in freezing temps (literally 0 degrees…if you look closely in some of the outdoor pics, THERE’S SNOW). Not what we expected on a late April weekend, but armed with cozy blankets, we didn’t let Mother Nature mess with our plans! Thanks for the fun gals, and well done. Congratulations to all of you!

I have been blessed over the years to get glimpses of all three of these ‘babies’, through portraits, as they grow….and now there’s one more on the way, to add to the story. Every time I get the chance to work with this lovely crew, I am amazed at the strength, the bond and the love. This little one coming soon is one lucky baby indeed, to become the newest addition to such a wonderful family. You will be loved, so very loved.

Full House…

April 18, 2013

Baby # 4 has arrived for this fun family. I was able to spend the morning at their home, snuggling with this brand new sweet boy, and taking pics all over their beautiful home. Everyone was so great to work with, eager to help out, and the girls even made lunch!! Congratulations guys, and thanks for the fun morning.

Brave and Beautiful…

April 10, 2013

No one understands better than I how uncomfortable it can be to have your photo taken. It’s a big part of why I work the way I do, trying to make the experience as comfortable, relaxing and stress free as it can be. And in the end, I hope to allow you to see just how beautiful you really are. This gorgeous woman was very brave, allowing me to capture her in several fun locations, and she ended up being a total natural at it. I had a great time and wonderful conversation. Thanks!!

It’s a tough job…

With all of the distractions in life these days, it can be hard to get a family’s attention for portraits. They may be playing on their phones…

Or talking on their phones (who would a baby be calling anyway?)…

Or tripping over each other…

Or when I do get their attention, I get ‘the stink eye’…

Or they’re just fooling around…

I am totally kidding because as always, this family was awesome! They play hard and they love large. We got lots of great shots and had a blast doing it! Thanks Mulders!!!
