Making Memories

It's been too long since my last blog but stay tuned for a lot more pictures to come.  Fall is my busy time of the year and I have been creating a lot of memories for my clients this month.  Some new and some past clients.  I love seeing their beautiful children grow up right before my eyes.  Here is an "AFTER" and "BEFORE".   It reminds me a little of a Thomas Kinkade painting. Just a fun one I took during this beautiful couple's session.  You can't tell from behind but they're expecting their first little one.  The big brother is right beside them.  We took these pictures by a ski resort I use to ski at years ago.  Unfortunately the leave had already fallen but it always amazes me how much color I can find with a little help friend... Photoshop.  The sun was going down so we had to work really fast to walk to our last spot but I just had to take a couple of pictures with them walking to our final spot of the evening.  Have you ever taken a picture and just knew that it was going to be magical when you see it.  This was one of those pictures.  How many times have you seen an old picture and it gave you a goose bumps or a smile just because.  Well I hope this will be one of those pictures for this very special couple. I wish you both all the best life has to offer.

Onto a New Adventure!

I had so much fun this year with my High School seniors.  The weather was perfect and we were able to get some nice shots to choose from.  Here are a couple of beautiful gals that I know will do great things in life.  I'm looking forward to seeing how they change the world for the better because I know they will.  They were both so fun to work with and that's what I love most about my job is getting to meet some amazing clients and being able to call them friends. Thank you for allowing me to capture your beauty in this amazing time of your lives.   All my best to you both!!!

Some of my favorite Prints

I love the personal interaction that Portrait Photography gives me but I also enjoy shooting for prints.  Here are a few pictures that I made into prints and will be trying them on canvas soon.  I am always honored when people like my pictures enough to purchase them for their homes or offices. This first picture is my little guy trying out body surfing for the first time.  Fun for him, scary for his momma!  All of these pictures were taken in beautiful Cocoa Beach, FL.  We spent Christmas there last year.  Laying on the beach was nice and warm but I missed my extended family and friends a little too much. But it was a memory we made and we'll remember forever.  Isn't that what life and photography is all about?...  capturing your beautiful memories?

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Who's ready for Spring?  I sure am.  It's been awhile since I blogged.  Just took some much needed time to recharge and learn some new photography techniques.  I'm so ready to get out side and take more pictures, work in my garden and yes even pull weeds.  I love this time of the year.  Getting Garden Magazines in the mail is almost like Christmas for me. I said almost.  I did a few photo sessions this winter and this one in particular was suppose to be a Valentines Shoot but it was just to dang warm. So we turned it into a  "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" session.  The pictures below were taken on a cold winter day but they were such great little models. I had so much fun with these little sweeties.  I love my job.

The most colorful time of the year

I wanted to post a couple more pictures of this beautiful family. I took these a week or two ago and the leaves are dropping fast now. I LOVE this time of the years. I wish FALL would last as long as WINTER seams to. Which is FOREVER now that I'm no longer a skier.  My youngest loves to snowboard.  I just hope that he is not as crazy as his mother.  I was a daredevil in my younger days.  Ya not so much anymore.

A new addition

She's here... The Lil Sis and the new addition to their family.  I shot these pictures yesterday so this is just a quick sample. It was a little chilly but their little sweetie didn't mind at all. She was such a little angel.. I love this time of the year for all of the beautiful colors.  Can't wait to show them the rest of the pictures.  They are all so photogenic so it's going to be hard for me to pick my favorites.  I have the "AFTER" and "BEFORE".   So you can see the difference an edit can make.

Mr. and Mrs.

  I had the pleasure of being the photographer at my beautiful cousin's wedding.  And to my new cousin, Welcome to the family.  This family is priceless to me and will be to you too I'm sure.  She used her grandmother's wedding dress.  The dress is 62 yrs old. I cried all day but told everyone my allergies were acting up.  There was so much love, you could feel it in the air.   This is just a quick edit but I wanted to post a picture of this beautiful couple. This place was gorgeous.  Thank you for  the opportunity to allow me to help you capture this precious time of your life.  Maybe your granddaughter can use this same dress.  All our love to you and your family.   Please click to enlarge and see all of the pictures from this special session.
