I've been so busy with babies and young children lately, and I recently got a change of pace. I love photographing seniors. They always have a unique style and it's a fun challenge for me to create images that reflect that personal style. Preston's a laid back guy - not real thrilled about being photographed but he did very well considering being a model isn't necessarily his favorite passtime! He has an edge to him, and I think I was able to capture that in his senior portraits. Here are a few favorites from his session.
Guess who? Yep it's Nina! My most difficult subject by far but my favorite anyway! Photographing your own kids is the most difficult. Ask any photographer who has kids and they'll tell ya! Nina is almost 2, so of course that adds a little more trouble to the mix, and then take out the added help of a parent to chase down the kids and round em up. Oh boy, did I get my workout yesterday! Anyway, here's what I got from my little turkey after chasing her all over the park for 20 minutes or so yesterday.
I got to photograph yet another beautiful baby today! This little guy has the most beautiful skin I've seen on a new baby in a long time! He did very well for his photo shoot, and though he was SO tired, he was able to keep his eyes open long enough to capture some of his waking moments. Here's baby Sam:
Here's baby Auden. He's just about 12 days old, sweet as can be and HUNGRY! It's amazing how such a tiny little person can eat so much. He's going to be a big strong tough guy. He had his mom, dad, grandma and grandpa there with him, and you can sure tell they love him a lot. What a lucky little boy!
Here's Jasmine! She's such a beautiful little aspiring model. Not even four years old, she just lit up in front of the camera. I'm sure she's going to do very well! Here are some of my favorites from her session.

Here I go neglecting my blog again, sorry! In my defense, I have had a very busy couple of weeks, with catching up on orders and attending an awesome convention! Anyway, I got a chance to photograph this little cutie again! I photographed him when he was just a tiny newborn, and now he's so big! Here is Ethan at 6 months:
And since you were wondering, here's one from his newborn session. Amazing how they change so fast, isn't it?
Thank you for visiting! I love what I do, and am honored to share it with you! I've been a photographer for 11 years and am loving it! I started out working in studios where I gained experience while learning and developing my skills independently. I've taken various classes on a variety of photography related topics to enhance what I'd already learned from experience. I began working on location independently part time in 2001 with dreams to open my own studio down the road. After I became mom to my daughter Nina in 2005, I decided to take another big step and go full time with my business. I'm so glad I did!
