In the beginning of May we had our first round of Spring Mini sessions. The theme was "Gardening In The Park." It was great to see so many return clients come back on and of the little ones had a great time.
Miss Hadley....What a GORGEOUS baby doll. She was such a happy little thing for her session. I really enjoyed watching her and her momma together. Her mom serves for Our US Navy and recently had re-enlisted. I have so much respect for her. She's creating such a wonderful life for her and her sweet girl.
I first met Jordan's family when his parents were expecting his older sister Bella. It has been such a pleasure to photograph this young growing family over the last two years. Jordan's daddy recently left for contract work in Afghanistan and I am so happy we were able to do these photos before he left. Bella has never really enjoyed me being around but I was very please with the way her mommy tricked her into one photo with her baby brother. A photo they will surely treasure forever <3
Many of my clients have met my very best friend, Sabrina. Sabrina and I shared a studio in her home. Sabrina and I met 2 1/2 years ago in a mommy photography group on-line. We saw we lived in the same town and she hired me to do her sons 6 month photos. We instantly just clicked (no pun intended). Have you ever had a soul mate besides your spouse? Someone you just feel like you've known forever? I mean it's like we're sisters, except better because we never fight lol Our families spent holidays together, vacationed together and spent several days a week together.
This Fall everything was going to change. Sabrina's husband was getting out of the Navy and a new career was going to take them to Texas. I was devastated to say the least. Of course I know you have to do what's best for your family but I was so heart broken to loose such a big part of my life. She's assured me that she is a great long-distant friend but I know it's just not the same. Our kids are each others best friends as well so I knew this would be hard for all of us.
It's been just over a month now since the big move and I'm finally able to blog her session and not get emotional over it. I have good days and bad. Life's not the same anymore but I know overtime it will hurt a little less. Sabrina has been a really great long-distance friend, like she said she would be. We talk daily, sometimes more then once a day. We've also have both acquired, what I like to call, therapy pets. I have a kitten, named Sabrina lol and She recently got a dog named Buddy :)
This first photo from their session is our four kids. Sabrina's two and then mine :)
December was a CRAZY month with 3 Cake Smash sessions. I just love these session. Little personalities can really come out. Plus, who doesn't love a baby covered in sweet, sticky, tasty frosting. Here are some photos from the sessions that were done.
Tessa and I met to capture this beautiful time in her life. She was absolutely radiant. You could tell she was so excited to be expecting a baby girl. We had so much fun during her session. I'm a bit behind on blogging and have already photographed her new baby so stay tuned for that session as well.
I started as this families photographer, just about a year ago. Since then I've been come great friends with their mom, Ginger. I've had such a great time getting to know them and photographing them several times. They are so great to work with. This day it was FREEZING out and the kids did GREAT!
This little lady may have not made my job easy but boy did we capture some gorgeous images. Patience pays off and I "usually" win :) She is part of my Baby Stages Plan and I am looking forward to photographing her 3 month photos. I can't wait to see how much she's changed!
This little guy is lucky enough to have a big sister who dotes him. It is so sweet to watch the love that she has for her new brother.
