Ellie & Lanie: 9 Months Old

November 26, 2014
Ellie and Lanie are 9 months old. To celebrate, I brought the girls (and their big brother) into my in-home “studio” on Sunday for some portraits. We had originally planned to meet at another location, but the rainy weather brought us inside. In fact, over the past few weeks, we’ve had to reschedule due to weather and sickness a few times. With the girls healthy, we had to take advantage of the time. I’ll admit that studio work is not my forte…it’s actually way out of my comfort zone. However, I’m trying to improve. Luckily, Jessica...

Tate: Portrait Session Preview

November 22, 2014
Yesterday, I met up with Tate for a portrait session at Yates’ Mill. Tate is a new client for me, but not new TO me. Felicity and I met Tate a couple of years ago in a Kindermusik class. Unfortunately (and we must change this), we have not gotten to hang out with Tate that much…although we do get to see him at the Library for storytime.

We were hopeful that a few of the autumn leaves would hang around, but after Monday’s...

For one, Lukas is willing to stand or sit…and SMILE. And beautiful smiles at that. Such beautiful smiles that I had an incredibly hard time choosing favorites. But I managed to choose a few that were worthy of sharing with the world, and now I pass the tough job of choosing the best of the...

“B” Family: From 4 to 5 in 2014

November 19, 2014
Saturday afternoon was simply beautiful. Okay, it was a little chilly…but it is November. It was one of those days that I was glad to have a client session – and especially at sunset. I was even more excited that that client session was with my dear friend, Pam and her family. Pam and I go way back…14 years. Gosh, we’re old. I met Pam during my first year of college. I was rooming with a girl who went to her high school (we grew up in the same general area). We knew many of the same people so it seemed only appropriate for us to be friends too. And...
