Cup 'O Valentine

I had so much fun with this ADOR.A.BLE baby and his fun mommy on Sunday! If I got this Valentine in my mailbox, I think I would squeal out loud when I opened it!

If you look closely, the X photograph says "Mommy" and the O photograph says Daddy, thanks to his super creative mom for the cute attire!

If these do not make you smile, then I'm pretty sure you need to have yourself checked out ;)

And finally, I do like these kinds of photographs when kids are just as adorable with a pouty face as they are with a smile! He did not appreciate being a Cup 'O Valentine as you can see!!

A Bundle of Perfect

When this new mom called me to come and photograph their newest addition, I was over the moon because I had such a good time with them taking their maternity photos. The sonogram one I have in my blog header is world famous now! Anyway, my hunch was right when I saw this sweet baby girl, totally adorable!

Thanks for letting me play with all of my hats and poses K family! Here are only a fraction of my favorites... I hope you love them as much as I do!

P.S. To all of my blog stalkers... if you like these kind of squishy newborn poses, they are best achieved before the baby turns 2 weeks old :)

One of my all-time fav family photos. I love it when mom said these were her two red-headed babies!

And I like to call this last photo, "Life is good."

Beautiful Perspective

One of the best things about this job is getting to see people I haven't seen in forever from a totally different view. Today I met with this beautiful girl that I went to high school with who also goes by the name "mommy" now too. Her daughter just stole my heart with her gorgeous eyes, sweet smile and the sweetest disposition. This job has turned me in to a total sap. I can't help it!
Sometimes the hardest thing for me is picking a few favs to preview here on my blog because I tend to pick different ones that speak to me for whatever reason, but... hands down, this one is my favorite shot of the day:

From one Steelers fan to another, this one makes me grin from ear to ear because she's doing "Touchdown Steelers!" which also happend to be one of my own daughter's very first signs. Love the hair :)

I also love these kinds of shots. I took this one in the beginning when she was still skeptical of me and my camera. I love how she's holding onto her mommy for security, a classic mommy-daughter pose.

K--I know this was supposed to be a Valentine's Day mini-session but I have sooooooo many favs to send you! Thank you so much for inviting me over today!

I'm here, I'm here!

I wrapped up an assignment this past weekend for Celebrate Gettysburg Magazine (awesome time!) and had a scheduled session postpone until this weekend... speaking of this weekend, I somehow booked 5 shoots this weekend. Crazy, you ask? Nope! I just NEVER turn down newborns! They're so time sensitive and should be done within the first two weeks. I'm so excited to meet this little girl anyway:)

I have 3 Valentine's Day session this weekend and another portrait assignment. Busy times so please stay tuned!

I have thought long and hard about the possiblity of posting more about my lucky ladybug this year. Afterall, she is my creative insipration and my breath of fresh air. I would like to introduce you more to her as she grows and continually amazes us, and share a little bit of what it's like to have a special (needs) toddler... I just hope it's not too terribly boring reading material for my readers!

Love is in the Air!

It's never too early to start thinking about love! I'm booking for Valentine's Day mini-sessions and running a special to go along with it.

Lucky Valentine Special $50

  • Mini-sessions at my home studio on Saturday, January 24th beginning at 9:00am. Sessions are first come first serve.
  • Mini-sessions at your home on Sunday, January 25th or Saturday, January 31st in the mornings.

What is a mini-session?

  • It is a shortened version of my normal 2-hour long session and will last around 30-45 minutes. Long enough to get at least 10 really sweet proofs to show you!
  • I will come prepared with a few Valentine props but sometimes the best photograph is just an adorable child with a sweet smile.

What do you get?

  • 2-5x7s
  • 10-4x6s to use as Valentine's Day cards or 10-4x6 Valentine's Day photo cards with a simple design (see below for an example!)
