Why should you invest in custom portraiture?

FYI: Please read if you have had a recent session or one coming up!

If you are expecting proofs soon, please bear with me. My computer is going to be the death of me. The charger is going kaput on me. I can only work for about 30 minutes every couple of hours before my computer dies. I'm several days behind on proofs because of this. I do have a new charger that should be here by Friday, so hopefully I can get caught up next week while I'm at the beach!

I know you all are probably tired of hearing me complain about my stinkin' computer, but let's be honest. In this economy, who can afford to shell out a thousand dollars on something - no matter how much you need it?

Thanks for understanding,


Martin Family

Yesterday, I had a session with this cutie-patootie! Tristan was a little shy at first, but by the end of the session we were holding hands and skippin' down the sidewalk!

I believe Mom's heart was in her throat here! Don't worry - Dad was standing right beside him!

I have a smokin' hot pic of these two about to kiss, but I thought I'd save that for their eyes only!

6 days young . . .

Have you all missed me? :) I've been away for a few days, but with good reason! I've had five sessions since yesterday morning! Yes, five! Definitely busy, but lovin' every minute of it.

Meet Baby Addison - only six days old. You all know how much I love newborns. If I don't have one for a few weeks, I think I start to have withdrawal symptoms!! Addison was so good to me! Awake for a while and then slept like a champ. I don't normally preview this many pics, but I just couldn't help myself!
A mother's love . . .
I've tried for the past few newborn sessions to do a shot like this one. It's really hard to get a newborn's head to balance on their arms like that. It felt so good to finally succeed. I told ya - Addison was good to me!

Look at those sweet, smooshy lips!

I got this material specifically with this session in mind. So glad I did!
Adorable . . .
I love this one!


Here's Lane, a 6 month old cutie! Look at those dimples!

Pumpkin Patch

I had so much fun with this family at the pumpkin patch yesterday. They are the cutest family! Sweet kiddos! Mom - enjoy!


Remember Madison from her six week session. She's now 3 months old and a beauty! And definitely one of the sweetest little girls ever!

Look at those hands! How sweet!
Here you go, Daddy! Here's your cowgirl.
LOVE this one! Look at Madi's lashes!
Ok, I just had to include this one. Are you yawning now?


Meet 3 month old, Drake. What a cute boy! He was so happy and fun to photograph. He has the cutest little chin (I know that sounds weird, but I have a thing about chins!). I can't wait to watch Mr. Drake grow into a little man!

Happy Birthday!

Austin will be one in October, so we got him in for some practice on smashing his cake. He didn't do much eating, but the smashing, he's got down pat!
Not so sure . . .
Digging right on in . . .

Investigation . . .

This is what happens when you try to proof pictures when your kids are awake . . .

OMG!!!! I look up and Jake has Brooklyn's marker in his mouth! Please ignore the terrible use of my onboard flash, but I only had enough time to grab the camera, put it in auto, and snap the pic before Jake jammed it all the way down his throat!
Anyone wanna volunteer for free babysitting???? :) :)

Here are more from my session with brothers, Kaden and Kamron.
Meet Kamron
I love this image of Kaden. I think it's my favorite of him.
I need to do this shot with my babies! It is so timeless.


Here are more from my session with Phoenix.

Mom is a librarian. Isn't this cute?
Dad loves his boy!
I really like this one because we did a shot like this when Mom was pregnant with Phoenix!

A couple from yesterday

My computer is being extremely slow right now, so I've only had time to process a couple from my shoots yesterday. I'll get more on in a little while. I promise!

Here is Phoenix - a sweet baby I have photographed since before he was born! He is just a few weeks younger than Baby Jake. We have to get them together for a play date!
Phoenix is the most roly-poly baby I have seen in a while. I LOVE it!!!! Almost as much as I love this super cute expression here!

Meet two brothers, Kaden and Kamron. (I hope I spelled those right!) More from these two cuties after my computer has a rest.
