Coming Soon!

Heather, Mike, and her belly! Luke will join the world in a few days, and then he'll be on here too! Nothing better than a belly and a baby!

Cole : Newborn

5 days old.
Plenty of hair.

I don't know what else I could have asked for when I shot Baby Cole's newborn session the other week. He was a photographer's dream, for sure!
Here are a couple of my favorites... though I admit that it was difficult to choose just a few.

Remaining Openings for 2010

Hi everyone! I'm so excited that bookings for holiday sessions are going well, but that unfortunately means that I only have a few more spots open for 2010. Here are the dates and times that I have open.

- Sunday, September 12th at 8:00am: BOOKED, NO LONGER AVAILABLE
- Saturday, October 2nd at 6:00pm
- Sunday, October 3rd at 6:00pm
- Sunday, October 10th at 6:00pm

If you're open to a session during the week, I have limited openings for that as well. Let me know if you're interested. Weekday sessions are only good for mini-sessions, as the available light is decreasing quickly.

Actually, I take that back... let me explain. The above sessions are the only availabilities I have if you want your images delivered for the holidays. If you don't have an immediate need (i.e. you don't want holiday cards or to use your images for holiday presents) than I am more than happy to schedule a session after the middle of October. Just know that there will be no guarantee that your images will be ready for Christmas.

And, because a blog post without an image isn't any fun, here's one from a newborn session I did last weekend. Cole's official blog post is coming soon, but here's a teaser!

Mom & Me Contest Winners!

So, a million years ago when I did the Mom & Me contest, Melissa won the session giveaway! Pretty soon after, we were able to do a session with her mom and sister... making it a trio of family love. Earlier this week I was searching my blog to show off these images to a friend of mine interested in her own adult mother/daughter session, when I realized that I never blogged them. My jaw dropped to the floor when I realized this. And I feel terrible. Better late than never, right?

2010 Holiday Card Offerings

Last night, I created the 2010 holiday card offerings. I love them all for different reasons, and simply cannot pick a favorite. Which one will you use for your holiday cards?

I want their genes.

I love the K family... they're gorgeous, sweeter than pie, and amazingly fun together. I joined them on Sunday morning at their house for some family portraits and I couldn't be more pleased with what we got! Mr. K is deploying soon for a few months, and they wanted some pictures to capture them in their element. The little Ks are cuter than they were about a month or so ago (if that's possible). Here are some of my favorites. To be honest, I really DON'T have a non-favorite from their session... so here are my favorite-favorites. :)

And now, for something completely different.

Neal requested a session in order to send some images to Collegiate Camo, a company he represents on the Outdoor Outfitters Channel. If you're not familiar with Outdoor Outfitters, its purpose is showcasing anything and everything regarding the outdoors -- fishing, hunting, marksmenship, etc. Neal even has a show airing in August where he's the star of an episode... a celebrity in the making, I tell you. (He's agreed to allow me exclusive photography privileges if he makes it big. Haha.)
He needed the images on a pretty strict deadline, and I'm incredibly surprised Neal made it through the session alive. A hot July afternoon and winter-seasoned camouflage don't normally go well together. :) Here are some of my favorites from our session. This session was totally outside my normal zone of photography, but sometimes it's fun to get outside of your element.
