Such a beautiful newborn.....I got the wonderful opportunity to photograph her when she was just two weeks old.  She is such a beautiful little girl.  We had so much fun with her during the shoot.  She even surprised daddy at one point...... Here are just a few of my favorites.  I don't know how mom and dad are going to choose.......Can't wait to see her again as she grows....Thank you Jennifer and Stan for allowing me to take photos of your wonderful angel.

Music Man!!!

Sunday I got a great opportunity to take pics of an up-and-coming rock star!  Brent will be a senior this year and is planning to go off to college in California after he graduates.  He is a self taught musician and from what I have seen and keep hearing, we will probably be hearing a lot more from him in the future.  Sunday, we started his Senior session.  The weather was rainy (as usual around here). But, we decided to get started and do at least some of the inside shots.  We will be finishing his shoot in the next week or so, so you may see his face again on here.  These are just a couple of them from the morning.  We ended the session with a few shots of Brent and his mom.  Senior sessions are a great time to incorporate a quick family photo.  Thanks for the opportunity to take your pics Brent.....maybe someday I will the the chance to say "I knew (and took his pics) back when.....before you became famous......."  Good Luck Brent!

About a month ago (boy how time flies - I told you I am behind on posting but, I promise I will post several this week) I took these photos of Chloe who just turned 2.  She is such a sweetheart and has tons of energy.  I loved taking her photos.  You can see in some of the pics she has on her pink croc "shoeys".  She LOVES  her shoes and mom and dad had to hide them from her to get some of the pics without them.  She hates the feel of the grass on her toes so they had to go back on when we moved the shoot to the yard outside.  She was so happy.  Her mommy told me that Chloe was looking at all the pics I had taken and didn't say anything until the pic of her shoes came up.  When that one came up on the computer, she started jumping up and down yelling "my shoeys!"  Mommy got her a copy of that pic for her bedroom.  Such a cutie!

Sneak Peeks - Kate!

I normally do only a "few" sneak peeks but, I had so many amazing pics from this senior session I couldn't choose.  I actually took over 1,300 pics that day so you can only imagine how many beautiful pics I have.  Kate is a beautiful girl with amazing eyes....and I don't think she could ever have a bad pic.  She was a natural......I might actually have to share a few more with you at another time when I go through and do the editing.  These were just a few random shots I pulled out of the shoot.....  The very last pic is Kate in her prom dress.  I wanted to do something a little different and love the end result.  Which are your favorites???? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Fathers Day....

A couple weeks ago I shared some of the pics of the session I had with this family.  They are such a sweet family and mommy wanted to do something a little special for daddy for Father's Day.  So, she had asked me if the opportunity arose, to take a pic or two that they may be able to give to him for his Father's Day gift.  (It was a surprise, so I couldn't share it with you before....)  I snapped the first one as we were going through the session and when I began editing, I knew I had to do something special with it.  I love the look on the father's and daughter's face.  Both so happy and you can tell she definitely is daddy's little princess.

As always, I love to hear comments!

Just a Couple.....

I am so behind in posting sneak peeks and I am sure I may share a few more from this shoot with you in a couple of days.  My long, holiday weekend will be.....editing and new photo sessions - GREAT weekend.  So, here are a few from a senior session I had last week.  I love doing senior sessions.  So much fun and energy with each of them.  Here are just a few pics from his session.   We will be getting together again in a week or so to take a few more photos.  I am sure I will share that part of the session with you too as I have a feeling those will be awesome.  Thanks Tanner for having me take your senior pics!

As always, I love to hear what you think so.....Leave me a comment!
