Baby Belly!!!!

My first maternity shoot! It was wicked fun and Ms. C was such a trooper and up for anything we could dream up! Shot in the morning light of my friend's sunny bedroom, it was the perfect spot for soft light and silhouettes!

Thanks for stopping by!

Bathing Beauties

Here's a few of my own adorable offspring. For some reason I really love photos in the tub. I think it's a combination of the white background and the fact that they really can't go anywhere! It makes it easy for them to just be themselves with only one rule- DON"T splash Mommy's camera!

Smiling at Daddy

Oh the Pout!

Good gracious, is he handsome!

My banner photo, I just love this.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Feel free to comment and tell your friends about my blog! Have a great day!

And Moving On!

Although I had great classmates and teachers, school just wasn't working out. Life got too crazy around here with Mom traveling to classes 45 minutes away 4 days a week.  So I sought out a different way to learn my chosen craft. Imagine my surprise when my first choice of a mentor, Stacy Damon was more than willing to trade her knowledge as a portrait photographer for a girl who was willing to tag along and be her assistant! Everything has just fallen into place! At our first meeting I realized that my true calling was children's photography. It was just so obvious, but sometimes it takes an view from outside ourselves! Soon after, I was reading a book that Stacy lent and something clicked. I jumped around the house and clapped my hands; "I FINALLY KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO BE WHEN I GROW UP!" Hooray! Finally!

This a very good feeling for a girl of 27.

Since then, I've been trying to shoot almost daily. My kids are often my muse, they are so freaking adorable after all. But luckily, I have friends who are willing to let me in and use their kids as a guinea pig for the day. In exchange for some great photos (If I do say so myself) of course! Here's one such day. Mr.O isn't much for smiling in front of the camera, but I'm not much for making a kid say "cheese".  Mr.O is a perfect example of why a kid is so much more than a smile! Adventurer, farmer, dare-devil skier, well, you'll see...

And this last one is just too much to handle! I'm sorry, but a boy who loves his animals is one thing, but when the goat loves him back, what can i say? It's just tooo much.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back again soon!
