Much to my dismay, one month old Madeline quickly freed herself from the grips of the perfect photo swaddle and seemed to say, "Take that, photographer lady!"
It was such a treat to work with little Madeline. Her mom was a co-owner of the adorable boutique Bebe Gate, so we had beautiful blankets galore to choose from. And I can't even begin to describe the glorious clothing selections that Madeline will have for months to come. And since I've been hired for two more sessions with this family, I look forward to putting the girly garments to good photo use in the future!
Madeline's session was squeezed into my already overbooked schedule, so her mom has been waiting ever so patiently to see her gallery. Thank you, H! I'm almost done...more to come your way soon! :)
I AM alive and kicking! I recently realized how terrible I've been at blogging after a handful of clients and blog followers sent "are you okay??" and "we miss your blog" messages. I really have the sweetest clients ever! The truth is that I'm buried in photo sessions right now, but am beyond thrilled to be photographing so many wonderful families! And now that our year is closing in on the end and I can see a faint light at the end of the tunnel, I will absolutely catch up on sharing some of my favorites. We have also been working on a new website and blog (I know, I know, it is about time!!). I had hoped to be able to get it up and running before the fall, but (*sigh*) it has been put onto the back burner once again until things slow down. But, as is true with most good things, I promise that it will be worth the wait!
Without further ado, here is a glimpse of what I've been up to lately...
A quick sneak peek for a lovely repeat client before I jet out of town once more. I've so enjoyed seeing these kids grow up since their first Blue Candy photo session two years ago!
Thanks again guys - I can't wait for you to see the rest of your gallery!
I have good news and bad news. Bad news first... I recently realized that short of spending a full 24-48 hours uploading images to this blog, there is no way that I am going to catch up showcasing all of my favorite recent sessions. But I think that the good news will make up for it...posting a little of some of my wonderful clients will make for one fabulous blog post. So here we go!
Click on the next one to see it better. :)
Phew! I could go on and on...but unfortunately, my clothes are not putting themselves into the suitcases. And while packing has me feeling like this...
I have a feeling that upon returning home next week I'll be feeling a bit more like this...
And trust me...there are many where these came from that will pop up sooner or later!
My mission, if I chose to accept it, was to photograph six young cousins together...at the tail end of their vacation...after a long day of horseback riding and swimming...when their bodies were exhausted and their eyes were already half closed with sleepiness. Eek!
Little Cole's mom won me over in her first e-mail to me. She'd composed an emotional letter detailing how she and her husband had been devastated by the quality of their wedding photographs. She went on to explain that since she was soon to give birth to a miracle baby (who was quite a surprise!), she didn't want to take a chance on her newborn's first photographs. In her words, "I think your work is absolutely breathtaking and looking at the pictures of the beautiful babies on your site brought me to tears as I realized how fortunate I was to be carrying this child." Well, let's just say that they had me at hello!
Meet Max...busy as a bee, but with the sweetest little spirit!
