Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to my place on the web! I am a natural light lifestyle photographer. What does that mean?? It means no bright hot lights to sit under, it means playing outside, it means having fun, it means giggling and being goofy and doing what kids do best while I capture the essence of your child or family. It means no stuffy "smile and say cheese" photos. It means heirloom quality art for your walls that shows who your children are TODAY. Captured. It means details, and most of all it means a fun session! Here you can read about everything from my latest sessions and sneak peeks to the crazy antics of my crazy, fun, beautiful, silly kids.

    Promises :)

    Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

    I keep making these promises to friends and family that I will start blogging again, about the kids, about life so they can keep up with us too, not just what I am doing for other people. And since I don’t have a whole lot to say this week, I’ve been neck deep in creating “The Lounge”- Client proofing area. And editing this Fabulous 4 year old’s birthday. Yes, you may recognize her from the last sneak peek. I think I saw this family 3 times in one week :) and my camera was in front of my face at each event! She had one of the best birthday parties I’ve ever been to!! Such an honor to help capture those memories!

    So, anyhow, since I haven’t even uploaded Easter photos yet, here’s my big monkey at the fair last month. I really cannot believe how grown up he looks. My soon to be 5 year old, says things to me like “Even when I’m as big as you mom, I’ll still be your baby boy” He knows RIGHT how to get me ;) (But can you tell how thrilled he is to be in this photo)

    And while he did get to ride this with his daddy…

    The real reason we were there was for this girl, and this cow ;)

    And they did awesome, and we are proud :)

    My husbands cousins (and Aunt and Uncle) have been raising Cattle and other animals with 4-h for years. We love to go visit and learn about the animals and watch them grow, and then go watch the competitions at the fair. The little monkey’s really enjoy it. (OK, so do the big ones ;) )

    I am working on putting together my portfolio of images, among a lot of other back end business building stuff. Not as much shooting as I’d like to be doing, but I know this stuff has to be done. But in the process of choosing some of my favorite shots from my past sessions I am reminded of why I want to do this. I am reminded of what I love about capturing and creating images. And through this, I think it’s plain to see what my passion in photography is. Children. Look, I’ll show you.

    (many if not all of these images will be gracing my portfolio page when I can decide on a format I love and quit changing my mind!)

    The Emotions. {The pleasure of being a parent, the innocence and joy of being a child}



    The Moments. {The small moments that say so much}



    The Details. {The ever fleeting details of who they are, RIGHT NOW. My favorite kind to capture.}
