I was so happy when Colton’s mom contacted me about doing his senior photos. I had the pleasure of shooting his brother Dylan’s photos 2 years ago when his family was visiting from California. It just so happens they are visiting again this summer and Colton is about to start his senior year.
With his beautiful mama…
and his adorable girlfriend.
Thank you so much, Jeanine for asking me to photograph Colton. It was so great to see you again! Best of luck to you, Colton. Have a wonderful senior year!
I shared images from this session last summer, but decided to share the entire gallery as well. It is one of my favorites from last year and when the skies are gray, it helps me to remember that the sun will come out again! Oh, how I am longing for warm, sunlit skies and beautiful families to photograph. Looking forward to many more beautiful sessions soon in this new year.
Please take a moment to view this gallery. I know it will make you smile! Also, if you are thinking of booking a session and need clothing ideas this family is a perfect example of “what to wear”. They chose bright colors (even though I normally suggest neutrals). However, the coordination and use of solids and a touch of simple pattern was perfection. I love that Mom chose a dress too. It’s just so feminine. Mom actually sent me pictures of the outfits she had in mind so that I could help her decide. Remember, I am always here to help!
I am currently booking outdoor family sessions for spring and beyond. If you are interested in booking a session, contact me soon for more details. Also, just a few mini sessions left for maternity and baby sessions in March! See details below.
Know you what it is to be a child?…
It is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief;
it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear,
it is to turn pumpkins into coaches,
and mice into horses,
lowness into loftiness,
and nothing into everything,
for each child has its fairy godmother in its soul.
– Francis Thompson
It’s time to begin booking sessions for March-May. My January and February dates are reserved for newborns and maternity sessions. If you are an expectant mommy with a summer due date and would like to book a session, please contact me anytime. I schedule newborns at anytime throughout the year. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form on my main website if you are interested in booking a session.
Please remember that I only take a limited number of sessions each month so I tend to book 2-3 months in advance. I will book on a first come, first serve basis. My summer sessions will begin booking in May. Oh summer…. I can hardly wait. It truly is my favorite time for photography sessions. That warm evening light is magical!
And if you haven’t visited the main website lately, you will notice a different look and updated photos! I am still trying to update it completely from last year’s sessions. I’m getting there… slowly but surely. All the big plans I had for the holiday “break” got a bit sidelined with other fun, family stuff. But I’m getting back to it now. So, go check it out if you have a free moment. And feel free to comment here to tell me what you think. I ♥ me some comments!
I am not a big fan of New Year’s Eve. I never really have been. Not being much of a party girl, I usually spend a quiet evening at home (much more my style). But the part that always gets me is the looking back on the year. I am such a sentimental soul and now that I have children, I realize how quickly the time goes. From one year to the next, they grow and change so much. And while I am grateful for the blessings in our life and the joy we shared in 2009, I always get anxious about the future. That’s just me – I always think, can it get any better than this?
As you move into 2010, remember to pick up your camera and snap everyday moments of your kids while they are young. Nothing moves me more than sitting and looking through old photographs and albums from when I was growing up. I love the silly things like hairstyles, clothing, the cars my parents drove. But mostly, I love seeing who we were – who our family was and the moments we spent together. Many things have changed as the years have come and gone, but the love of family has always been there.
Just looking at the pictures of my babies from the past 12 months makes me all too weepy. I wanted to share a few (ok…a lot) with you here tonight. Some of these are ones you may have seen before but they are some of my favorites.
What a wonderful year! Thank you to all of my wonderful clients and blog followers. 2009 has been an incredible year and here’s to an even more beautiful 2010.
