{ We've Moved }

You will find my new blog here. Come on over for a new sneak peek:)


{ Prince Cullen }

Mr. Cullen is my blog star... again! You will find him here, here, and, most recently, here. I truly ADORE watching "my" babies grow:) So, you will see this handsome little fella quite often. Here is a small sneak peek. It was SO HARD to choose just a few because this cutie really rocked my camera! Enjoy... until next time;)


{She has that glow }

"I saw a couple walking by they were holding hands
Man, she had that glow
yeah I couldn't help but notice she was starting to show"

Yesterday, we had a baby shower at my home. I think it's safe to say that a good time was had by all:) Here are a few shots of the happily expecting parents-to-be (and the adorable cake.) Yes, I normally like my maternity shoots to be further along, but this couple lives about 9 hours away. So, we took what we could get. To see two people so clearly in love and eagerly awaiting the arrival of their baby is almost magical to me. Congratulations again!


{ Casting Call }

Good morning to all my wonderful blog readers! I have some great news and a wonderful opportunity to share today:) It all begins with a casting call. You see, I feel that I am "pretty good" with newborns, but I want to be AWESOME! How do you get awesome??? Well, with practice... remember that old saying, practice makes perfect;) So, I am announcing a casting call for newborns. I am offering prints at a reduced rate and no sitting fee. Extra special things will be given to multiples;)  I'm not going to set a specific number of offers. I'm just going to play it by ear:) So, if you know of anyone who just had an adorable baby or is about to have a baby, send them my way. You can either respond here or on my facebook fan page. There is a catch, I need the babies to be less than 3 weeks old, preferably less than 2 weeks old. This is the stage where they are still super sleepy, curly, and squishy. Take a look at the gorgeous babies below. Also, these are a couple of examples of  the wonderful storyboards that I can create for you. I look forward to hearing from you!


{ Colin is growing too fast! }

"Little boys come in all shapes and sizes,
Shy and adventurous, full of surprises,
With misshapen halos and mischievous grins,
Small dirty faces, and sweet, sticky chins.
They'll keep you so busy, and yet all the while
Nothing can brighten the world like their smile.
And no greater treasure has brought homes more joy
Than a curious, active, and lovable boy!"

If you follow my blog, then you will remember sweet Colin from herehere, and here. It has been awhile since we have had a playdate... and it showed. Little Colin make me work for his attention like I have never worked before. lol! But, this adorable cutie is more than worth it:) Here is his precious sneak peek. 

I couldn't help but add this one. Colin already knows the BEST... Nikon;)


D is for dazzling ;)

Here is a good example of a "different" use for a session. Miss Diane braved the cold and wind to update her modeling portfolio. Gorgeous is all I can say! She has some of the most perfect features I have ever seen! Hope you enjoy your sneak peek:) Lots more to come!


Operation: Love ReUnited

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a generous heart (which is why I LOVE the giveaway contests:) and that I am always looking for ways to help and "give back." So, when my awesome friend, Kayse, suggested this, I jumped at the chance:) I am thrilled to announce that I recently became a volunteer for a wonderful organization. Operation: Love ReUnited is a non-profit organization that helps connect deployed service members and their families through photographs. Through Operation: Love ReUnited, if you have a family member deployed or about to deploy, I offer you two free on-location photo sessions. The first family session takes place before deployment or after the service member is deployed. I will then send a complimentary 4x6 album of the photos to the deployed service member. A follow up session happens at homecoming. If my schedule allows it, I'll join you when you're reunited with your loved one and capture the memories for you. If not, we'll schedule a reunion photo session at a later time to capture your family, reunited.

Operation: Love ReUnited clients are under no obligation to purchase any additional prints. However, as an added thank you, I offer 15% off all prints to OpLove clients. Remember, Operation: Love ReUnited photo sessions are only available for military families with a service member who is deployed or about to be deployed. As a thank you to the rest of the military community, I will offer 15% off of all prints and specialty products for military families with military ID.

{ Newness }

I have been inspired this week by all the new babies. I have decided to offer a special for all new Mommys-to-be:) Receive a free newborn session with a paid maternity session. Can you just imagine all the sweetness we can capture? Please pass the word along to all your expectant friends!


{ Precious baby boy }

I am sooo blessed with my job:) I had the pleasure of snuggling two babies this week. Today, Carson was a dream. He was so sweet and cuddly. He slept nearly the entire time and didn't wet me even once. yay!
