Adorable Family Session

This was a really cute family I got to photograph yesterday. They were up for anything so I had them swinging their little girl, playing airplanes, having tickle fights...this is the kind of session I adore where we do little posing and just go for fun and playfulness. Their little one, Miss P, could laugh on command which cracked me up! She also had the habit of squinching up her nose when she was genuinely laughing which I just adored...its those little things that I strive to capture during a won't remember the posed stuff in 20 years, but the silly moments and little things the kids did (like the nose)...that's what you remember when they're all grown up and not your little babies anymore. Guess I'm feeling sentimental today! Anyway, this is one of my favorite shots from the session where they were all laughing and being silly and now that's a moment preserved for always!

Little Miss Abercrombie & Fitch

Several people have told me this shot looks like an Abercrombie & Fitch, thanks! I'll take that as a compliment. Again, our granddaughter while we were in San Diego on vacation at the beach. This is one of my all time favorites portraits of her. And everyone else in the family, I had to print a lot of this one for the extended family. This is also the image I have on my laptop bag.

Just for Fun

I am waiting on my new monitor to come in - RIP old faithful Dell 17" :(

So, I'm temporarily on my laptop and I found some older work on her I'd forgotten about, that's kind of fun! Here's one of our 3 granddaughters that lives in San Diego. I call this one "Fast Ball" - you can see she's giving it her all....look at the tongue action she's got going!

The other one is from a Ladies Nite Out I did a couple of years ago...these were "romantic portraits" for Valentine's. I also did some for brides as gifts to their husband. I call it Glamour Shots without the sleeze or cheese! Hmm, maybe I need to revive these for Valentine's '08?

Beautiful Fur Babies

What a pair of lookers these two gorgeous Shelties are! I had never seen Shelties with these colors before and knew this was the perfect backdrop for them. I love getting to photograph animals so when I got this booking I was thrilled! Miss Prima (Prima Donna) is on the suitcase and Evita on the floor. Prima earned her name...she loves to pose, loves the spotlight as all Prima Donnas should! Evita was a bit more reserved till she got comfortable with the new environment, lights and all that. Very well behaved Scotties could take lesson from them for sure!

Little Elf

Mom let me play with E today....she's such a doll, I could take her picture all day long. She finally had enough though...we did teaparty, Christmas hat, birthday and petti....alot for a little one in just one session. I had to add snow to the snowball shot just for fun...

Enjoy your peek Mom while I finish editing your session!

Sample Slideshow

I offer cd slideshows set to music using all the images that are in your galleries. I have added a link (off to the right) to a sample slideshow. These can have text added (as shown) or just images. Please ignore the home page on the slideshow gallery....the site is having major problems right now so I can't load it with images but I'm working on fixing that. But, having said all that...the slideshow works, just the homepage isn't so pretty!

Beautiful High School Senior

This was a fun shoot and nice change of pace for me as I mostly do little children. M was a great sport as I had her trampling out in the wooded fields and whatnot...its all about getting the shot! She has played soccer pretty much her whole life so of course we had to get some with her soccer ball. Thanks for making it fun, and here's your sneak peek while I finish editing the session!

Gallery Wraps

Love, love, love the gallery wraps! I know its hard to visualize sometimes with just a name...and I get this question alot "what's a gallery wrap?" So here is a visual with two of my favorite recent images. The regular canvas wrap does not have the image wrap around onto the sides, the gallery wrap does. It's ideal for hanging without framing so you can see all the image, or display on a photo ledge - my personal favorite. Love that Pottery Barn look!

Sweet Newborn

This sweet little newborn is my grandbaby's new cousin. So Gigi has to share the spotlight now...not sure how she's going to like that! This is her aunt's baby on mom's side (Gigi's dad is my son). So while I still only have the one grandbaby, I hope baby K can be my honorary grandbaby. I'm sure I'll be photographing her almost as much as Gigi. I shot these, headed out of town so this is a very delayed sneak peek while I get back to the session. Here ya go Jen!

I couldn't resist adding one of Gigi we did at the same she is, my little cowgirl! I'm not sure what she thought of wearing a tutu with a cowgirl hat...she kind of looked at me like I was nuts!
