Newborn Sweetness…

About 2 months ago I did a maternity session for Cynthia and Steve. We captured some beautiful images of Cynthia and her little baby bump while having a great time chatting about their sweet baby girl. Not too long after the maternity session Cynthia and Steve came back to the studio for a family session…as we were finishing up the family session we grabbed a few more maternity snaps as Cynthia said she really felt like baby ‘A’ would be making her appearance sooner, rather than later. Sure enough, no more than a week had passed before I got word that baby ‘A’ had arrived…about a month early. Through a few scares at the time of delivery and some time in the NICU, baby ‘A’ is now home and is healthy and adorable as can be!!! She is so tiny and so precious…simlply amazing!

Cynthia and Steve, thank you so much for letting me capture such a beautiful time in yours and ‘A’s life. I couldnt be happier to have been able to create these images for you guys.

They grow and change so fast!

Having a child of my own I should really know this by now, but for some reason it never ceases to amaze me how fast children really grow. One of my favorite things about being a photographer is when I get the opportunity to see these beautiful children that I photograph change and grow as they continue to come in for new sessions. Honestly, I get this amazing gift of seeing the ever evolving and changing person that they will become….what an awesome thing to be a part of!

This is the second time that I have had the great opportunity to photograph these two cuties. Our first session was around the end of 07, we did a really fun and casual session on the beach and captured some great images for their holiday card. It really seems like just yesterday we were out shooting that session so when Stephanie came in with “E” and “G” I was just shocked at how much they have grown. I mean really, it seems like it was just yesterday!!! “G” is turning into such a little man…sigh…so sweet!!! And “E” such the little girl, she loved putting on my petti skirts and dancing around like a princess…gotta love that!

These two shots are from our session last year

VIVA LAS VEGAS!!

Whew……I just returned from an amazing week in Vegas for a huge Photography Convention (WPPI) What an amazing week! I have come home mentally refreshed, inspired, full of new information, and well to be honest a bit exhausted. By day I attended different classes and seminars, then hit the venue booth and trade show floors to check out all sorts of great products, then off to a few more classes and/or seminars and completed the evenings with some awesome parties thrown by some awesome vendors and other photographers!

On Tuesday afternoon and again at night myself and my good friend and fellow photographer Emma were able to sneak away to hit the Vegas strip for some shooting…we started out just having some fun shooting the normal stuff on the strip.

You know I love me some sun flare….

Then we hit the strip again once the sun went down and classes were over

We decided we were on a mission to find us a bride and groom somewhere on the strip that would let us shoot them so we headed across the street to the Bellagio hoping we would find an unsuspecting couple watching the water show.

And wouldn’t you know it….we found ourselves the newly married Christine and Kevin, who agreed to let us photograph them…although I’m not too sure they realized what they were in foricon smile VIVA LAS VEGAS!!It started as just myself and Emma, and we were soon joined by Melissa McClure and her fiance and Lauren Wright, and soon a few other photographers that happened to be walking the strip…and I even think we drew the attention of some completely random people with their point and shoot cameras as they were walking by, ohhh, and we cant leave out the wonderful people driving by cheering the bride and groom on….LOL….ahhhh Vegas.

In all seriousness, Christine and Kevin were SUCH troopers, so sweet and honestly I cant thank them enough for taking some time out of their big night to satisfy our photography passion. You guys were AWESOME and I will be emailing you soon to get your address so we can mail you your images…thanks again you two!

I also want to thank my clients and prospective clients for their patience while I was away…my Internet service at the hotel was SO spotty and we were on the go so much that getting emails out was super difficult. I have a few galleries that are just about ready for viewing and will be posting a few more sneak peeks tomorrow!
