iconSweet as sugar

This is my princess. She recently turned 4 years old. And she actually let me take her pictures the other day!!! (Of course I had to bribe her with glittery princess nail polish.) I would say that my bribe was well worth it. Just look at this little beauty!


iconMeet Miss Teresa

This is my super sweet friend, Teresa. She is just as passionate about photography as I am.

But I didn't realize that she is also a Pro on the other side of the camera! Man, if all my subjects were as easy to photograph as Teresa, then my job would be way too easy.

She is sweet,



And one of the most fun people I know!

Love you, T. I hope you like these!


iconI'm wondering...

...if anyone is interested in Christmas mini-shoots this year?

The details:


30 minute session

8-10 digital files on CD

1 Christmas card design

Let me know! If I have enough interest I will set up a date.



I hate computer issues!!! I have spent many more hours than I would like to remember fighting with my computer. The computer won! I won't bore you with all of the details, but, to make a long story short, I lost all of my edits on my fun girls weekend. Boo-hoo:( So, I have a few for your viewing pleasure of my beautiful, extremely generous, and fun friend, Ricki. Miss T's shots will have to wait for now.

This is what automatically happens when she sees a camera:

But once she gets it out of her system she ends up looking totally sexy like this:

Or just straight up beautiful like this:

Well, like any of these, really.

I played around with the processing on these. Tell me which ones you like the best.


iconUp close and personal

Not much to say. Just close-ups of some beautiful children. Enjoy!


iconAnd the winner is...

Camille Ence!!!

Thank you so much to all who entered my contest. It was so fun to check every day and see who was looking at my work. In fact, I had so much fun that I am already thinking about what I am going to do for the next contest. (Just a hint...if you keep commenting, then your chances just might be a bit higher.)

And, just because it seems wrong to post without a picture, here is one of my 4-year-old princess.


iconThis was sooooo much fun!

A few of my gal pals and I decided get away from home for the weekend and learn how to better rock our cameras. There was a ton of eating, laughing, and just plain fun going on. And, of course, we ended up with some fun photos...a few hundred fun photos!! The fun continues as I spend time editing these shots. I love the freedom to be able to play to my hearts content knowing that these pictures are just for me--well, they're for R and T, too, but those girls have to just get what I give them, lol. I'm putting up just a few, but there will definitely be more coming soon!

I know you are all wondering...I DID NOT do anything to these eyes that wasn't done to the rest of the picture. Her eyes are really THAT beautiful!!!

Be sure to scroll down a few posts and participate in my giveaway!!!


iconA fun family

OK, so check this out.

I had this fun session with a super cool family. These are people that I respect and admire in so many ways.

The supermom of these 5 gorgeous kids got everybody up and ready before 7:30am. I knew she was amazing, but that just confirmed it for me. I can learn so much about being a mom from her. Not just any mom, but a real involved, engaged, patient, loving mom. She is amazing.

Enjoy your sneak peek!
