Okay Okay Okay… I’m being pestered to hurry up and get more up. Here’s one more!! If you want to see the rest, go to the portrait side of my website and view the featured session (gallery > featured)! I’m so busy right now that I haven’t put them ALLLL up but there are quite a few there to start with.

My first Prom winner is booked for next week so expect some images of that by the end of next week! Plus I’m going to start sewing more Petti-Skirts and some capes for my mini sessions… if only a gathering foot would fit on my sewing machine!! The last one was a nightmare to baste and gather together. I’m going to be an expert at this when I’m done. I’m also making some cute little tu-tus. I’ll post pictures of everything when I’m done.

To my favorite friend waiting patiently for her wedding video - I am burning it (again… and again) as we speak! I almost threw my computer out the front window in the process… but it’s done. Hooray!! Expect it in the mail ASAP! I hope you love it to pieces.

Last note, I promise. This is to all those moms who love (but secretly hate, or vice-versa) home parties, ie. Candle Parties, Tupperware Parties, Skin Care Parties… and I’m not forgetting the kind of parties that I wouldn’t write about on here… Welcome to the newest kind of party that you are going to love. Portrait Parties. (small ovation). Yes! You heard me!! Portrait Parties!!! Exciting? I knew you’d think so. What does everyone need? More pictures of their kids, of course. Why not spend an afternoon with friends in the park with some food and fun and your favorite photographer (me!). The more friends you invite, the less each session costs (up to 6 friends) and the host earns print credits towards their order in appreciation for throwing the party. Please send me an e-mail if you’re interested. As always, more details to follow!

Good night!

Here’s my “help” that I was talking about!

Almost 1 Year!

So today I went out to a park, last minute, to give my 70-200 mm lens some exercise as I hate to admit it but I haven’t had much chance to use it yet. With wedding season coming up I thought it’d be great to go outside and play. My little man will be 1 year on May 30th and being a photographer-mom I want him to have super cute 1 Year pictures. He’s pretty sweet to begin with so I don’t think it will be tough.

Here’s one I just processed. We’re going back with some help as Mommy could use someone to distract him and Abbie, our chocolate lab, wasn’t very much help. Can’t wait to process the others and show you…

On another note: I am in the process of developing some mini-sessions. Just 1/2 an hour of photography in the park with petti-skirts, capes, and cardboard swords. A low session fee with 10-12 selects for you to choose from. I’ll be posting all the details and available dates soon.

I had the pleasure of photographing a sweet little seven pound bundle along with her loving family this weekend. It was so cute watching her big sister sing her favorite lullaby and how such a tiny person knows that song and feels comforted by it. Here’s a sneak peek for the family!

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice…. this little girl is quite possibly one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever laid my eyes on.

And don’t forget her ever so cute and precocious big brother. Check out those dimples!

This thursday I spent the afternoon with the “O” family taking pictures of baby Eric, who just turned 1 year. I am so excited to edit them, I’ll post a peek later this week.

In the meantime, I’ve wanted to capture this baby bum for quite awhile now.
