Simply Darling

My third time photographing these adorable children!  I am so lucky!  It was freezing cold and windy so we ran in and out to keep the kids warm and happy!  There were perfect!  I have never ever had a 2 year old follow directions like this little guy!  I mean really...what 2 year old does what you tell him?  This one does... 
Dad is deployed and I did not mention Dad as I did not want any sad faces but when I asked this darling 4 year old to say Mommy, Candy, Money, etc... She got all excited and said Daddy and then told me all about how her Daddy will be home for Christmas!  The joy in her voice, her expressions and her words would have melted her Daddy's heart!  That will be her best Christmas gift for sure!  Makes you stop and realize what matters most, not just to us adults but to the children too.  My fingers and nose was cold but my heart was very warm.  Mom, you are doing a great job!

beautiful and blue

These kids have the most amazing eyes!  You know when you go South and the water turns crystal blue?  Yes I mean WAY south like to the Bahamas??  And it is just so breathtakingly beautiful?  Their eyes are the same way!  They are so crystal blue that they are hard not to look at!  And, they got it honest!  This is one beautiful blue eyed family and hands down one of my favorites to photograph!

Sneak Peek for the lovely "B" Family

The georgousness (is that even a word) of this family was shining right through the brisk wind.  What?  You can't see that we were practically in a hurricane??? It was crazy I tell you but, shoot we did!  These cuties were troopers for sure!

And here is just one of the Christmas Cards I will be offering this year.  More to come...
EDIT:  We re-shot this session due to the weather and got tons of lovely images to add to the ones we already had!  Here is a little peek...

tiny little sneek peak of a tiny little princess

Meet Haleigh!  She is tiny and precious and totally loves to suck on her hand.  It was so weird holding her and feeling how small this 1 week old was to my monster of a 4 week old.  She is absolutely darling and I have a feeling is going to give her mommy a run for her money!  That is what girls do right?  Probably have her daddy wrapped around her little tiny finger from the day they meet.  He is currently deployed.  When he gets home she will most likely be the size of my newborn!  Ha Ha!
Meet Haleigh...

Back in Biz-ness

Well my baby boy is here and is a healthy, sweet little guy!  Other than lack of sleep the adjustment has been smooth.  Sullivan is doing fantastic with him.  I am feeling great and so ready to start shooting again.
My calendar is now open for booking in October.  I currently have the following dates available:
October 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 and 17
More may open up as I can work more on getting help with the baby.  As of now he and hubby will be coming along with me because he likes to eat and I just can't have his milk that far away yet!   So...we are going to make things work.  I have a wonderful hubby.   Some weekdays may open up soon.  I do have about 10 families on my waiting list and I am trying to book in order in which I was contacted but, if you spoke with me about a session you need to contact me with a date soon.  These will fill up fast.
I can not wait to photograph each of you!!!

Have you ever met that person, that family that makes you think?  I have been thinking about this family for the last couple of days and trying to figure out just the right word that describes them.  Today it hit me, gratitude. 
I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to photograph this beautiful little girl!  She was 24 days new and precious!  What a gorgeous family this was and I have never met anyone filled with so much gratitude.  Gratitude for God's blessing...good and bad.  Hearing the stories and getting to know this very special mom made me really think about my own life.  It seemed to come so easy for her, gratitude that is, no matter the hard time she has had.  Through every story she told me, there was always gratitude.  What a blessing to get to meet and talk to someone like this.  An amazing family indeed!  Hoeltz family, you were a blessing to me!  Thank you for not only letting me photograph your family but also for touching my life.  I hope you enjoy your sneek peek!

Beautiful Mama, precious big sister

OK, I know this is kind of a tease but, I do not have permission to share these images but I HAD to tell you about it!!!  We went to the beach for a maternity shoot with Mom and big sister who is 2.  The beach was windy and the water rough but the sun was perfect!  Thank goodness for the nice light because after the 2.5 hour drive that should have taken 1 hours I was frustrated!!!  Once I got there, saw the light and the family, all was better!  Mama had a cute little belly and a big, beautiful smile!  Big sister had on the the cutest pink and green polka dotted outfit and the most beautiful eyes you have ever seen!  They were a treat to work with and the images are beautiful!  I can not wait to finish their session so they can see!!!   Congrats on the little man coming into your family and enjoy every minute of your journey!  I hope to photograph the little guy one day!  And because a post is so much more fun with an image...

Sweet Baby Dylan

Oh he was a doll baby!  A handsome fellow indeed.  I just loved his red hair that so did not match his sweet personality.    Happy 3 months Baby Dylan!
