$99 Studio Special

I have been having so much fun playing around in my new "studio" (our carpeted garage which doubles as our homeschool/playroom) that I thought I'd put together a Studio Package Special for the new year in hopes that I get to play around even more in these next few months.  So here's the deal...

$99 Studio Special
30-45 Minute Session
10 Images on CD
(Images will be family selected from a proof set ready the next day.
CD will be mailed within a week)
Copyright Release
Complimentary Giggle Wrangler
(AKA my silly seven year old daughter who is sure to catch even the trickiest of smiles...
okay, so no real guarantee but she'll give it all she's got without the fear of embarrassing herself! :)

Price good for sessions booked now through May 2012

The Funnest Family Session Ever... thank you for the smiles!!! :)

I promised to wait until after Christmas to post this family's pictures and then almost forgot to share this wonderful gallery!  And just to quiet any rumors... I'll be kind to share that Mr. B has a twin brother recently featured on my blog here.  I'll let them be the ones to tell their stories of akward misunderstandings if you should have the chance to meet them.  I'll just say that it has been a pleasure working with and getting to know both families!  This session was such a joy to shoot.  Come take a look!

Merry Christmas Time...

It's just around the corner...


Are you ready???

These pictures turned out just too cute to not share...

That look is just too stinkin' precious I couldn't decide which caption would be best...
"One more picture... you gotta be kiddin' me!"
"Yes, Son, you make us feel that way, too, sometimes..."
Haha, maybe YOU have a better caption... I'd love to hear it! :)

Like I said, they were all TOO cute! :)

The B Fall Family Session

Fall sessions are risky business.  Ideally for an outdoor photo session this time of year, you want bright colors AND nice weather.  That combination can be a little hard to come by in the NW.  Fortunately we were given both!  I found this neat little spot a couple days before our session.  The vibrant fall colors and the rock wall add a lot of detail to this already fun and photogenic family.  It is always such a delight to work with them.  I especially love seeing the four little ones growing up and their sweet personalities emerging.  Click on the collage or link below to come take a look for yourself... you won't regret it! :)

Newborn C-- 11 Days Old

This little one must have known it was show time because once she settled down (good job Mom & Dad, you were great!) the session was nothing but smooth!  I think my favorite part was her fun "breech legs" that always wanted to be up in the air.  It's such a wonderful reminder that we all come into this world with a distinct personality... enough with words, click on the collage or the link below to see some cuteness at its finest! :)

S Senior Portrait Session

How many people do you know that can do improvisational juggling with sticks... while smiling?  I know at least one! ;)  Check out these fun Senior Pictures... and it'll be *almost" like you know an improvisational juggling boyscout, too! :)

Previews from last week! :)

I'm a little behind from catching a pretty bad cold, but the good news is I got to sleep all day today and am feeling much better... and of course, the previews are up! :)  I had a lot of fun last weekend with these four families.  Thanks for being such wonderful clients!

You may recognize this family from last year.  They've added another cutie to the mix! This family was so much fun to work with.  It was great seeing you, and you two are doing great with your beautiful (and handsome) children!  :)

Having our 10 year High School Reunion was a great excuse to meet up with a former classmate of mine and to take some pictures of her growing family.  It was a pleasure meeting your family and that little cutie of yours is such a doll!

Nothing like a last minute newborn session.  These happy parents contacted me the night before inquiring about a session for their incredibly wonderful, sleepy and perfect brand new baby!  What a delight this session was! :)

It is so much fun getting Seniors to smile.  Little did I know that I would get to watch a first-class (and improvised) juggling act for this session! I think I should require some sort of talent show for Senior Sessions from now on... Working with mostly young children, I love to see such individual personalities all grown up! :)

Some More Wedding! :)

So much love and fun in this wedding party and family...

This one's especially for Tiffany! ;)

The question was, "Are we going to be nice?"
More to Come...

T & R -- Six Months

Here are those cuties once again!  I loved every minute I had with these two.  I couldn't have asked for a better set of twins for my first twin session.  They were both so great the whole entire time!  R was such a little charmer from the beginning.  And although T took awhile to warm up to the idea of someone hovering around him with a camera, once that smile of his started cracking I didn't want to stop shooting.  They are both just plain irresistible!  Oh, and I can't forget to mention, T just adores his big brother.  He would not take his eyes off of him from the moment he walked in the door to the end of the session.  Come take a look at the sweetness yourself!

Beach Art

Last month I had the privilege of going to the beach to shoot a wedding. Since my own 9 year wedding anniversary happened to fall on the same weekend, my husband and I decided to make it an extended weekend trip. Click on the collage or link below to view some images from our explorations... and to learn just a few reasons why I think my husband is so great! :)

Summer Fun...

So far this second year of photography is seeing a lot of firsts...

My first out-of-state trip (for a maternity session) expecting this sweet bundle.

My first "professional" wedding (not counting the one from my High School days... or family;)

My first beach session.

AND... first session with twins!!! :)

Needless to say, I am having a lot of crazy-busy-fun this summer!  Thank you for your patience if you are waiting on your gallery to be finished.  For everyone else, sometime in these next two weeks I will be posting a couple exciting bits of news AND that special surprise for past clients (mentioned during the one year anniversary giveaway).  Thank you all for a wonderful first year and a great start to the next one!!!
