Theo turns THREE!!

Mr. Theodore is one of my best clients!  I might be a bit biased as he is family, but that's okay!  He has previously been very shy in front of the camera, but he is definitely warming up to it!

Frederick Mini Session Winner

So, in honor of getting 450 "likes" on Facebook, I did a drawing for a mini-session. How exciting! In order to qualify, people needed to "like" my page (how else would they be able to find out if they won!), and tag a friend in the comments. That's all!  Pretty easy, right?

Well, I drew the winners via a random generator and got my two winners!  One of them contacted me immediately and asked to pass her free mini session on to her neighbor, who had also entered the drawing.  I was feeling generous and agreed!  Man, am I glad that I did!  This family was such fun!  I absolutely love when my job is fun (I mean, it is mostly fun, but it is a business, so there are boring parts!).

Here are their favorites from this session!

Baby Bump Jam has Arrived!

Before Austin and Kelsea could even order anything from their maternity session, this little bundle of joy arrived!  I would like to introduce you to Jaxon!  

He put up a fight with this session!  I haven't been peed on or pooed on so much since my youngest was an infant (knock on wood!)!  Even with all the hiccups, I so enjoyed my time with him.  Not wanting to sleep for me or his mama meant more baby snuggles!

EIther way, we got a few gems, even a smile here and there.  Also, he has the chubbiest fingers I have ever seen on a newborn, which I found absolutely adorable!

Here are a few of his parents' favorites:

Doris' 90th Birthday Bash

I was contacted on short notice inquiring about photographing a LARGE family for a 90th birthday celebration.  This is slightly out of my comfort zone as I have never done an event before (officially!), although I have definitely practiced at my own family functions.  

So, with the clients fully aware, I stepped out of my comfort zone and photographed my first event and first large extended family! Here are a few shots from that.

Madison: Part 1

Madison couldn't decide between a fall session and a winter session for her Senior photos.  Because I do offer two locations for Senior Sessions, we decided to not only break it up into two locations, but to also break it up into two seasons!  

I had a fantastic time with this young lady!  She is fun, funny, gorgeous, and full of spunk! (does saying that age me? Oh, my!)  She followed direction great and didn't seem to mind my bossy side.  She was even up for experimentation.  That photo with her cloned?  I have NEVER done anything like that before but REALLY wanted to.  She was all for it, even knowing it might not work out.  But it did.  Because we both are awesome!  Obviously!

Here is a preview of some of her favorites from her Senior Session: Part 1 - 

I even gifted her some Senior Rep cards to hand out, so if your 2016 Senior is behind and needs to get some Senior Photos, hit her up for a discount!

I can't wait for Part 2 with Madison, we will see what awesomeness happens!
