it’s never too late to have your senior portraits taken.  alanah is proof of that!  i first met her back at jamie’s session and hoped to shoot her senior session as well.  so now i did!  while spring and summer are the preferred time for most high schoolers to sign up for senior sessions, winter does have its’ own look that we captured with alanah’s session as we explored the grounds of her beautiful home.  the soft, muted light.  the dewy backyard area full of ivy.  cozy clothes.  it doesn’t hurt that alanah is gorgeous and would look great in a blizzard!  winter sessions are not for everyone but if you’re graduating this year and you haven’t had your senior portraits done yet, you should really consider it.  i’ll let alanah’s gorgeous images convince you a little more!

I have never…been to Europe

If I had $1,000 I would…use the money to go on a cool trip, or go to Canada, or buy a plane ticket to go visit someone.

I love Big Shots Photography and working with Marla because:  it was way more fun than I thought it was going to be, Marla made it really easy and comfortable. She is so nice and easy to talk to!

i thought that a name as cute as “hadley” deserved to be the title of this post.  and hadley is just as cute as her name!  the whole family is so darn cute.  i loved being with them for their session.  since photographing newborns during their first ten days of life is best, we scheduled hadley on her eighth day.  i can’t wait to watch little hadley grow during her baby plan year.   for this, our first session, we stayed at home as i always do for newborns.  i just show up, do my thing and leave.  i stay as long as it takes to get the images the family wants.  in this case, it was easy.  annie and nate were very laid back (especially for first time parents!!!) which makes my job easier and lets me get natural images.  see for yourselves…

daddy’s little girl

it takes the love of two very special people to bring little hadley into this world.  

happy valentine’s day to all of you!  i know the blog’s been a little (ok, a lot) quiet these days.  why?  it’s because i’m getting so many new products and ideas together for the new year.  to celebrate all of that newness, i thought i’d have a valentine’s day special.  celebrating valentine’s day one day of the month is just not enough.  let’s extend the love.  book a session in february and receive $50 off.  it doesn’t matter if you want a session soon or in the summer.  book it now, and you’ll save mucho bucks.  this is good for maternity, babies, seniors, etc.  saving money…another reason to love valentine’s day!

i thought i’d share a valentine’s card i designed for one of my baby plan clients.  andrew is SUCH a dollface…i’d find any reason to feature him on the blog again!  hope you find many reasons to kiss, hug and love all of the dollfaces in YOUR lives today & always.
