I love Big Shots Photography and working with Marla because:  She’s so much fun. She’s so easy to be yourself around. Marla loves to create your vision instead of those cheesy stuido poses.

we’ve got a rockin’ group of senior models this year!  you’ve seen their individual blog posts but haven’t been formally introduced to the class of 2012 big shots senior models.  they’re out there passing out cards with great deals for you on them.  each model had her own session personalized and tailored to her likes and her personality.  watch the video to get a sampling of what big shots has to offer.  want something totally different?  have a unique idea in mind?  GREAT!  big shots is all about giving you an amazing experience while capturing who you are.  let us do that for you.  whether you want a session now, mid summer or in the fall, contact us now to schedule your session.  dates are going fast!

without further ado…the class of 2012 big shots senior models:

thank goodness for the good weather we’ve been having after rainy april.  it gives me time to shoot so many awesome sessions!  this time we met up for a combo urban/park session!  having a little bit of both gave us the opportunity to capture everyone in different modes and moods.  where you have your session can have a big impact on the way the family members act and interact!  here are my favorites from this fun family session!

i get it.  our boys get bigger but they’re always our babies!

can you tell they have fun together?

daddy’s girl for sure.  so many images of the two of them with this one to share.

what do you get when you have two busy parents, an active baby but still want great images?  a mini session!  mini sessions are perfect for situations such as this.  want to surprise dad with images of the kids for fathers day?  consider a mini session!  there are so many times when mini sessions are the perfect fit for what you’re looking for.  if you are interested in a mini session for your small family, just siblings, maternity and more, let me know.  it’s 1/2 the price but ALL of the quality you expect from big shots!

for this mini session,  we celebrated baby natalia’s first birthday at the park!  she started out timid but gave me lots of great photo opps as we got going and even some big hugs throughout.  i know mom was worried we didn’t get any good images.  don’t think you have to worry anymore.  enjoy!

really?  do they make them much cuter?

see where natalia gets her adorableness?  gorgeous family!

and there’s that sweet light…
