Happy Birthday Maddie!!

You are an amazingly beautiful young lady – so smart, sweet, considerate, loving, gentle..beautiful on the inside and out.  I love you Maddie Jean – Happy 12th Birthday!!!

Life is good…

As you can tell it’s been forever since my last post, i’m working on a new Website and Blog and my plan was to save my new jobs for the new site.  However reality has set in..almost 6 months later life with 2 small kids, an amazingly busy photography business and a super busy social/activities schedule has filled my time.  Later this month is when I hope to have my new Blog up so for now, i’ll post a few things here to let you all know that I still have a business, lol.  All the jobs from the past 6 months will be blogged later, just because I love to share photos of my awesome customers.  Also to all of my customers, please know how very much I appreciate you and thank you for supporting me and my dreams.

Mothers Day Mini Sessions

I think it is so very Important for Children to have photos with and of their parents.  For me, I’m always hiding from the camera which is about to change!  Some of the sweetest photos I have of clients are the ones where they are talking with their children, not knowing that I’m taking a photo.  Children grow so very fast, it’s wonderful to capture these moments in time to remember the special bond.  Photography is so rewarding, knowing that I can make someone so incredibly happy by showing them photos of those they love so much.  I’m really excited for this Mother’s Day Event and hope to bring tears of joy to these Mom’s.  Below is all the information about the Mini-Sessions – also with each booking a beautiful wrapped Gift Certificate will be provided.

Baby Caleb

Beware, this beautiful little guy may cause severe baby fever!!!!  He was so precious and it was adorable to see how much his older brother loves him.  I hope they will really enjoy the photos of them together later in life.

BHS Basketball Cheerleaders

Due to the weather being wet and windy this day we ended up taking photos in a REALLY cool place.. The Loomis Hall Artist Lofts in Blaine.  http://loomishallgallery.com/.  The inside of this building has so many unique rooms, we chose to go in the Dance Studio where the wood floor and green wall added some fun to the photos.

Tayven is 5!

Tayven’s Mom and I laughed ALOT during his session.  Tayven and my daughter have gone to preschool together for 2yrs, he’s been a pretty quiet little guy until the last couple of months, lol.  It was awesome to see how hilarious he is becoming.  Maybe not so funny for Mom 🙂  He was on fire this day..So silly and making the BEST faces, we had great weather and found some cool spots – great day!

Beautiful Subject…Beautiful Location

What a fun afternoon I had with MS. C, we hung out at Lairmont Manor and took some great photos. She is just gorgeous!!

Girls Day!

I try to have a girls day once a month with my little ones, just to spend time playing.  Having a home based business is great since it allows me to be with them, but a lot of the time I’m working while they play.  We had a great time in Fairhaven last week, Abby really loves it there – mostly because of the cupcake shop and the Abbey Tea Garden.  Two very cool spots!  Of course I had to bring my camera…

Gavin and Brietta

It’s been so neat watching these little cuties grow up.  I have to tell you that Miss Brietta was one little girl who had me running last year while taking her photos. I was in shock this year when she just struck one pose after the other and was a dream to photograph.   She went from the toughest toddler to catch to the easiest, it was so bizarre!  Gavin has always been great just as long as I have Candy;) This time I chose my treat a bit better, last time it was a sucker and it was in 1/2 of my shots..lesson learned!   I had so many photos I loved from this session it was tough to narrow it down.

Our Girls

Days are going by like minutes lately, where does the time go??    Our dear friend Katie has taken Abby out on a playdate and Maiya is napping so I will attempt to catch up on some posts and burn like a million files on to CD from my overloaded ext. HD and computer, lol.   Abby had an awesome opportunity to be in the Alicia’s bridal fashion show in January, she LOVED it!  Here are some photos from the day along with a couple of Maiya creating the biggest mess of Yogurt ever 🙂

Thank you to the girls at Tart Beauty http://www.tartbeauty.com for  glamming her up!
