Nicole’s Maternity Session

After Nicole’s maternity session, I think it is safe to say I have fallen in love with brick walls.  The dramatic backdrop this wall provided for her session is amazing, not to mention the glowing mommy-to-be!

A momma’s love and her first born, such a special bond!

SM3

Baby sister is about to become the middle sister, and she’s so excited.

SM4

I want to play “this little piggy went to market…” with those toes!

SM5

I can promise you one thing, I did not touch her eyes…not even a tiny bit!  Those are her true baby blues, and they are gorgeous!

SM6

I asked the girls ” want to see momma and daddy kiss? ” they giggled, and I snapped away!

SM7

Now, come on baby girl…we are all waiting!!!

Beautiful Emily

SM2

I mean, GORGEOUS, am I right?  When Emily approached me to do her head shots I was so excited to venture into something new with my photography.  At that point the only head shots I had done were my own, I gave her full disclosure and she was willing to give me a shot.  Boy am I glad she did.  I had SUCH a fun time working with her and could not be more proud with her gallery.

Looking back through her gallery makes me want to put on some lipstick and get my hair done.  Speaking of, any of you looking for a makeup artist or hair dresser, Emily is your girl.  She does amazing work and is such a pleasure to chat with!  Thank you again Emily and I cannot wait to work with you again in the near future!!

Reagan is Two!

SM

This sweet girl turned two and could not have been more excited to celebrate with a yummy cupcake and balloons.  This little two year packs such a big heart and personality.

SM2

That sweet smile covered in pink icing!

SM3

So yummy she had to double fist it!

SM4

Even though this little one was careful to not get too dirty or make a mess, I think her favorite part of the session was clean up.  She had so much fun with the water and suds, she didn’t want to get out!

Such a fun, and yummy, session!

Johnson Engagement

SM

Adorable family right?  It won’t be long before these two tie the knot under these gorgeous oaks on a crisp fall day.  We took their engagement pictures at the wedding venue and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  I’m a sucker for beautiful open fields with huge gorgeous old oak trees, and this venue had just that.

Tell me this, is she not going to make the most beautiful bride?  I cannot wait to see her glowing on their special day!

SM12

He popped the question, and she said yes!  Congrats again you two!!

Baby Jackson

Before I go into each session, I have a plan.  I research poses and techniques prior to the session.  I know a “theme” which I want to aim my work.  I come up with a “game plan”, which backdrop to use first, any props I want to include, etc.  This session was no different, I had several ideas and knew my plan of action…but when I plugged my card into my computer that night after this session I was blown away.  The pictures were simply stunning!  Baby Jackson made his arrival earlier this month, his mommy and daddy were very anxious to meet him. It was a smooth sailing session, I think he may have had as much fun as I did 🙂 I will let the pictures do the talking…

Congrats again you two, he sure is one handsome young man!

Michalkiewicz Family

SM6

The Michalkiewicz family invited me to their gorgeous new home for their family session a almost two weeks ago.  When Lindsay contacted me about taking pictures and explained their home/property I was excited, it sounded so beautiful.  When I arrived, I was blown away!  Not only are they an adorable family with a beautiful little girl and handsome young boy, their home was stunning and their property backed up to a canal with a cute little dock…it turned out to be a prime choice for family pictures.  Such a sweet family and I’m loving the “lifestyle” pictures we were able to capture.

SM1

Although the weather did not want to cooperate with us we were still able to get some amazing shots on the dock before the heavy rain came.

SM2

After the rain picked up we headed inside and I decided to try some “lifestyle” shots of the kids in their rooms and the family in their home.

SM3

She loves Minnie Mouse so of course we had to take a picture or two with Minnie. Look at those eyes…not Minnie’s! 🙂

SM4

Being ALLOWED to jump on the bed, what boy wouldn’t love that?!

SM5

Sweet older brother!

SM7

Thank you again Michalkiewicz Family, I enjoyed visiting with you and capturing your family’s memories!
