The Red white and Blue
As a military family the 4th of July is important to my family and myself. That is why patriotic minis I am a little extra excited for. Usually I do a model call for the promotional add whenever I have mini sessions. But not for these. This time I wanted to use my son. Many people think that because I am a photographer that I have "so many great photos of my kids". Well think again lol. My kids are just like any other. They're extra stinky when it comes to mom. Usually it is
Booking a boudoir session with me?
Hey Ladies! So you either have or are thinking of booking a boudoir photography sessions with me. Here's a little bit about what to expect from your photo session and some tips and tricks as well. I offer two different boudoir photography packages, the first is without hair and makeup, the second is with hair and makeup. If I'm running a boudoir mini special then it will include hair and makeup. I am partnered with a very well known, outstanding hair and makeup artist Beauty
She FINALLY did it!
While empowering, boudoir photo sessions can be nerve wracking! For years my hair and makeup artist has done hair and makeup for dozens of my boudoir clients. Each and every boudoir session she has told me about how she wants to book a boudoir shoot for herself. "Someday I'll do it", "When I get in better shape I really want to", and "Okay next time I'll probably do one" (she didn't). But regardless of me thinking and telling her how beautiful she was, she just wasn't ready,
My very own little lumberjack
See this little chunk? He's my little chunk. This is Emmett, my youngest son. As a cake smash photographer I see so many themes. I started planning Emmett's cake smash session when he was about six months old. I went though many themes before I decided on one. So, so, so many themes! I thought I was set in stone on a Candy Land theme, but then about 2 weeks before I did his session I decided on Lumberjack. Not sure why, but the theme was just calling to me. Honestly I think
It was balloon madness!
This is Maddison, be careful because she will steal your heart! I know she stole mine. I first met Maddison's mom Jolie when she was pregnant with her. She booked a maternity photoshoot and newborns with me. Jolie was radiant during her maternity session and when I met Maddison for her newborn session she was just as radiant as her mama. I have loved seeing Maddison grow from being in her mommy tummy, to newborn, to now her cake smash! Burgundy. Burgundy is the theme with thi
In Texas we do BBQ smashes
The traditional first birthday photoshoots are done by babies getting messy by digging into a yummy cake. With Finley we did things a bit differently. I first met Finley at her newborn session one short year ago. I adored both her and parents right away. A few months later The Clancy family returned to me for their Christmas mini session. It's then that Finley's mom brought up the idea of a BBQ smash instead of a traditional cake smash for her first birthday the upcoming June
Happy First Birthday Charlie
Happy first birthday Charlie! You only turn one once and Charlie was very serious about it at first. He was intrigued by my camera and studio lighting and oh goodness Mr. Teddy Bear (he was all about moving the teddy as soon as I re positioned him lol) but wouldn't crack a smile, but with some work, silly noises, help from his auntie, and of course smashing his cake she decided that getting his photos taken was pretty fun! I don't often shoot against my brown photo backdrop b
Such a beautiful addition
Say hello to sweet baby girl Lauren. At 24 days "old" she was one of the oldest newborns I have worked with. No worries though because even if a baby if outside of the ideal 4-14 day old age range beautiful newborn photos are possible. Miss Lauren did give me a run for my money at times though. If she wasn't wrapped up snug she just wanted to be held by her mama, Marissa. Lauren is Marissa's first biological baby, but Marissa does have two absolutely wonderful bonus babies wh
They look like out of a magazine
This is the Hughes family. Kristi took advantage of the Fall mini photo sessions I have yearly and booked a family photoshoot at Northwest Community Park. When they first showed up I was in awe with not only how good looking the entire family is, but with how well their outfits were coordinated. Kristi did an amazing job putting everything together. Not going to lie, sometimes family photoshoots can be a little hectic with multiple children. Especially younger children. This
She was an angel!
Baby girl Lliana came to my studio when she was 10 days old for her newborn photoshoot. Due to her mama having another appointment I knew I wouldn't have as much time to work with and pose her so I was praying she was going to be very sleepy so that I could pose her easily and in a timely manner. With such relief Lliana was an angel! She was so sleepy her entire session and let me mold an pose her any which way I wanted. Her mama really wanted to make sure that we got family
