Oh Baby!

I love babies! And although I don’t lean toward the “trendy” baby portraits, I enjoy creating classic, timeless portraits of babies of all ages to be treasured for years to come. Here are just a few of the cuties to come through the studio lately!

Mother & Daughter Portrait Session | Andrea & Maddie

To me one of the most beautiful experiences and memories you can have is to spend the time being photographed with loved ones. Not only is it quality time together that will be remembered, but you walk away with physical treasure that will last a lifetime and beyond.

How special to spend time with your daughter creating memories captured forever?

It was a joy photographing Andrea and her daughter Maddie... the way she looked at her mom as if she were the most magical princess in the world is beyond words. The connection was undeniable, and I hope they will treasure these images (and memories) for years to come!

Bringing JOY To The World

I had the pleasure of photographing local Instagram icon Meghan Joy Yancy (check her out!) and 3 of her girls at my studio. I absolutely love following her and seeing all the adorable photos of her family.

I cannot explain how sweet, kind, well behaved, and amazingly cooperative these girls were. They are exactly the kind of girls you want your own daughter to hang around with!

It was such a joy photographing you and your family Meghan… all the best to you!

Beautiful Models

When I attended the Portrait Masters conference in Phoenix in September to further my portrait education, one of my favorite parts was photographing some of the incredible models there. It was such a great experience to try different lighting scenarios and directing strangers… although they sure made it easy! Aren’t these ladies lovely?

My Mother's Day Wish

Several years ago, my daughter and I spent a good part of Mother’s Day in my studio trying to take a self portrait of us. We had lots of fun and laughs, but I never really quite got the portrait I was looking for. Self portraits are hard! A timer is great, but hitting focus, and more importantly posing, is nearly impossible.

Fast forward to this year and when my daughter asked what I wanted for Mother’s Day, I told her to go in and take some new portraits of us. “Whatever you want Mommy, it’s your special day” was my response. {{heart melt}} We grabbed the curling iron, some makeup and browsed the studio wardrobe for some dresses and headed to the studio!

We had so much fun doing portraits. We set up a mirror this time so I could at least have an idea of our posing, and although it was tough, I’m super happy with some of the images we captured. My daughter loves using the camera, so she had a great time (and did a great job!) posing me and taking some pictures of me as well. Finish it off with her “jumping” photos because she wanted some of her hair flipped up, and we both checked off our goal pictures for the day!

Portraits matter… they matter to me, and I’m glad they matter to her. These are memories we will have forever - and the pictures to prove it. Schedule your mother/child session today… not only for the images you will cherish for a lifetime, but for the experience you will remember!

Savannah

Savannah was one of the models at The Portrait Masters, and something about her just caught my attention immediately. She is supermodel gorgeous, but the sweetest girl in the world. She’s got a bright future ahead of her in modeling. Check her out on Instagram!

A Mother's Love

Nothing is more beautiful to capture than a new mother and the connection she has with her tiny baby. It’s nothing short of magical.

It’s cliche, but they are only this little once… Many moms schedule newborn sessions but don’t get in the photos themselves. Don’t miss the opportunity to not only capture them, but you and your connection with your baby as well.
