Baby is girl here! She has been tolerating my camera pretty well, I am pleased to announce! It had been awhile since I had a brand new squish to photograph and I didn’t realize how much I missed it!
But anyways, I am ready to start taking on sessions again. The weather is getting gorgeous again and grass and turning green, which I am always happy to see!
I’ve got some fun stuff planned for late spring/early summer, so stay tuned for that announcement. I’ll post something as soon as I figure out a few more details :)
I’ve been in the process of getting ready for this baby, so I’ve been slowing down my sessions and it’s driving me mad. I so want to be back working consistently, despite being so ridiculously pregnant. I scheduled a couple sessions this weekend, so maybe they will do me in. Or make the baby make an appearance… we’ll see!
In the mean time, I’ve been doing some behind the scenes work on my business, coming up with some super fun ideas for spring/summer mini sessions that you will NOT want to miss out on! I will be announcing and will start booking for them in the next couple months, so keep your eyes peeled. I am SO excited for it!
I’ve also been taking this downtime to do some learning, and am super psyched to be able to put all this new knowledge to use once I can get myself around. I may be doing some casting calls in the near future as well, so if you’re interested, make sure you have liked my page AND hit the ‘follow page’ button at the top since Facebook won’t show you most of my posts.
I’m posting this from my phone, so the quality won’t be great, but I’ll leave you with a photo I took the other day :)
It has been a busy summer/fall season for me. I’ve learned a ton of new tricks and have been trying to play around with new techniques. It’s been fun! But my poor, poor neglected blog, ha. Also had this awesome lady come visit me and help me second shoot a wedding! We’re such goobers… took this photo in a mirror after the wedding reception. I wish she lived closer to me so I had a permanent photo buddy!
Here are a couple photos from some weddings I’ve been keeping myself busy with this fall. I love photographing weddings. I love seeing people so happy and I love being able to capture memories from one of the happiest days of their lives.
I will have some more photos posted soon! Make sure you become a fan of my Facebook page to receive updates! This month I have two big events going on for holiday photos. I am offering mini-sessions in Mechanicsville as well as Doswell, so check my page for details! It’s a great deal, fun for the kids, and a great way to get photos for your holiday cards!
We have been enjoying our vacation this year with family at the beach so far. Hurricane Arthur comes through today, but should be sunny again tomorrow. The weather has been beautiful and the ocean warm almost every day we’ve been here. Kellan really did not enjoy the sand at first. He kept wanting me to brush off his feet and hands, but he got used to it by day two and now he loves getting his bucket of “wa-wa” and splashing his toys in it. He has gotten too brave for me by trying to run into the ocean and also trying to jump into the pool before someone is there to catch him. Little daredevil has no fear.
Here are a few pics of my little guy on the beach. More pics to follow on Facebook this week.
I’ve had the privilege of photographing quite a few babies recently. I love babies! They’re definitely challenging, but it’s so rewarding to be able to watch them grow up. Newborns come with their own set of challenges. I never know what to expect when photographing a new arrival. Sometimes the baby is perfect. Sleeps the entire time, minimal fussing, easy to maneuver… but most of the time, the little one requires quite a bit of shushing, rocking, folding, holding, feeding, changing, etc. As long as you have patience, it can be done! I have some tips on preparing your newborn to be photographed on my All Things Baby page, if you’re interested in scheduling a session. Here are a couple newborns I’ve photographed since I last updated, and also a couple 6 month portraits from one of my babies doing the Baby’s First Year package I offer. So sweet!
Once again, I’ve been so busy lately with life that my site has taken a hit (again)! I barely have had time to sit down to edit all my sessions, much less update my blog. My little sweet baby turned one year old, our house is FINALLY (ok, ALMOST) put back together from the construction, and our days have just been so busy. This kiddo sure keeps me on my toes. He is into everything, which makes computer time pretty much impossible unless I have another set of eyes on him. Since I’ve been so bad about updating lately, here are a few of my favorite photos from some sessions I’ve had lately. Of course, I have some more I could add to this post, but here are a couple just for now since I’m short on time.
Sorry for the weird formatting of the pictures. My website does not want to play very nice with this entry for some reason.
I did some photos for the Daltons a couple days ago, and holy MOLY is their 8 month old baby boy adorable! This was my first time working with this awesome little family– they told me they hadn’t had professional photos taken of him since he was born. This little stud is a natural model though– he definitely knew how to work the camera. I think his parents may need to start bringing him around more often! ;) We started outside taking a few family photos, and a few with just Booker before heading inside because it was pretty chilly and miserable out. Because seriously, how could you say no to this face?
Once we came in, Booker was a pro. He LOVED wearing those sunglasses. They had the most adorable little 3 piece suit and tie for him for some early Easter pictures. I wish I could share every picture I took of this kid, that’s how cute and photogenic he was… but I will save some suspense for his parents when they get the CD once I finish editing them all. Here’s a sneak peek of his photoshoot!
Aaaaaaaaand here is my kid attempting to photo bomb his session.
