Melanie, Jason, Leah and Adam

I was so excited when Melanie contacted me for a photo session. It is so fun to meet new families, I love what I do! Melanie and Jason are awesome parents and they knew just what to do to get their kids smiling. I love it when families are up for anything and just go with the flow. We lucked out and got  a beautiful sunny day (after a week or two of rain). I love the pretty light in these photos and I also LOVED this location. It was so green (but I couldn't help but throw in several black and whites!)

I love this shot, favorite!

This is Adam... isn't he handsome? 

Leah has such a wonderful smile :)

I am so glad Jason and Melanie were up for this shot, I love kissing photos!

Another favorite...

Thanks so much Melanie and Jason... I absolutely loved this session!

Sneak peek...

What a fun session! This family was awesome and I loved every second. Whenever I do a shoot I usually pick out a favorite photo as soon as I load the photos to my computer. Today this one stood out to me....

I would love to have a photo similar to this one of my family :) I absolutely love it! I am going to have a blast editing from this session... be sure to stop by my blog again soon to see the rest!

Slowing down

Life has been crazy lately.... but good at the same time. I've had so much going on and I am ready for my life to be back to normal. That might take awhile. Oh well, at least things are going well and life is good. I have a family shoot tomorrow, so be watching for a post.... the weather is supposed to be beautiful and warm. I am ready for that, I've had enough of the rain for now! Here is a photo to top this post off.... it's green, flowery and everything to do with spring. Ahh spring! I love it. Happy Friday!

Faces & Flowers

Be sure to take a look at all the photos entered this week at i heart faces.... They are having a faces & flowers theme this week, yeay for spring! Here is my favorite face & flower photo....

I love the soft colors in this photo, especially the pinks. I love her rosy cheeks and the shape of her lips. I always loved blowing dandelions as a little girl and I was always careful to make a good wish... did you wish on dandelions when you were little? Or maybe you still do? What would you wish for today?

Celebrating Mom

For those of you who are not familiar with i heart faces head over to their site! Each week they have a themed photo challenge that anyone can enter their photos into. This week's theme is "Celebrating Mom" which is perfect for this week :) I have loved taking photos for mothers with their children. It's amazing how much love can be expressed in a photograph.

Jack and Luke

I really can't get enough of photographing babies! Baby Luke is just adorable and he is loved so much by his mom, dad and his big brother. I loved seeing the connection between these two brothers, they really love each other. The light was so pretty and I just love the beautiful colors in these photos...

I loved the photos of Becky and Luke and I had a hard time choosing a favorite. This one I think I like best :)

Luke would coo and smile at his brother and Jack just ate up the attention...

Favorite :)

 When we finished up with the session Jack got to play in the fountain... he loved it and didn't mind getting all wet!

Be sure to leave some comment love for these cute boys! Don't you think they are just adorable? Thanks Becky, your kids are so much fun!

Julia, Aaron, Eldon, and Lilly

What a fun family! Eldon and Lilly were so cute and silly. I could tell they really enjoyed being with each other. Lilly followed Eldon around and copied his every move. It reminded me of my two kids who are just a year younger than each of these cute kids. We had a lot of fun walking around this beautiful park... getting soaked through :) It was a rainy day, but luckily it slowed down and we had a great time. I loved how easy going this family is, it made my job so easy and the pictures are so fun!

This one is one of my favorites :)

This is so sweet...

Another favorite....

 Thanks Julia for setting this up, I loved taking these photos for you!

Custom Photography... and a special offer!

*Be sure to read through to the end to hear about my special offer*

I just wanted to thank everyone who has come by to see my new blog and to make comments. I am trying to get the ball rolling with my new photo business and it is quite the process! Right now my main focus is building a portfolio. I have had several opportunities to take photos of so many wonderful people! Thank you for trusting me and allowing me to gain experience by taking your photos. I have really enjoyed every minute! For those of you who are not familiar with on-location custom photography I would like to help you get familiar with it and see what it has to offer. I love custom photography for so many reasons. Here are a few reasons I wanted to share with you....
  • It's fun!
  • Shoots usually take place somewhere that is meaningful and comfortable to you.
  • You have the chance to relax and be you.
  • Each session is unique.
  • The photos are natural, candid, and fun. 
  • Endless options! Not just a few poses to choose from. 
  • I have to say that for toddlers and kids this is the way to go! They are free to just be themselves and to wiggle and run around as much as they like.
  • Natural light :) You've got to love natural light!
I could really go on and on... 

Okay.... this is where it gets good.... don't stop reading yet! I want each of you to be able to experience and enjoy what custom photography has to offer. As I am still building a portfolio for my photography business I feel like this is a great time to offer a discount. As of now I am offering sessions for only $35 to those of you who book a session between May 22nd and June 26th. This is a great opportunity for you to give custom photography a chance, and to see if it is the style you want for your photos. This also gives me an opportunity to build up my portfolio as I start my business. Please contact me if you would like to schedule a photo session with me and if you book between May 22nd and June 26th you will receive the session for only $35! Also be sure to spread the word, if you know of anyone wanting photos done let them know about this offer!
