Being thankful

I have been thinking a lot lately about what I am thankful for and my list as grown each day.  I thought that it would be fun to post something up every day that I am thankful for, so here we go!

1.I am thankful for my kids, oh how I love them.  They mean the world to me.  I also am thankful that they put up with the camera being in fount of their little faces all the time!

before and after

I always like seeing other photographers "before and after" photos.  So I thought that it would be fun to do one of mine own.  I took my kiddos out for a 45 min shoot the other night and had so much fun.  It has been getting dark here around 5pm.  So we did a speedy shoot.  :)

Oh, what to were, what to wear?!

I often get that frantic email or phone call a few days before a session, 
"I have been shopping for an outfit for weeks and can't decide on the colors, patters/no patterns, HELP!!" 
If you feel the normal stress of dressing for your shoot, you are not alone.  I even get stressed.  I hope that this quick tip will help you feel less stressed for your next photo shoot. 



  Think of a Color Wheel (or glance up at the one I provided for you).  This one is obviously simplified but you can get the idea.  The colors opposite of each other on a color wheel look great together like Turquoise and Orange (very popular right now in design and home decor), Red and Green, or Purple and Yellow.

L Family

It is always fun to meet new people.  This cute mom was so fun to chat with.  Before this photo session we probably sent 100 emails back and forth!  It was so fun to get to know you and your darling family!  Enjoy your sneak peek!

C Family

Boy has it been busy around here.  Coming back from vacation is hard!!  I have so many pictures to edit that have to put my cruise pictures on hold.  I have so many pictures to sort though!  It was tough living the pampered life!

I have to thank my clients for being so patient with me.  Being a mom of three is not easy and when you throw in a craft fair and Halloween it almost becomes imposable to stay above water.  I thought that maybe I could pay Hannah in penny candy to clean and watch her brother while I edit all day.....she might just go for it! 

This family was a dream!  The light and trees were just beautiful and with this darling little family in there it becomes a work of art!  Thank you!


 This little girl just kills me!  She has these candy blue eyes and little curly hair!  What a sweetie!
