Head-shots with Steph

Yesterday I had a fun mini session with my friend Steph to create some fun head-shots. Steph is preparing to open her new business and she wanted some fun shots to use in her promo pieces. (More info about her cool new business coming soon.) So, I dragged her outside in the freezing cold wind & snow but she was a total trooper. (No pun intended, Steph! LOL!) Thanks for a fun afternoon, here’s a sneak peek for now. I’ll be in touch with the rest soon. Enjoy!

Now Booking – April & May Sessions

As I type this on a dreary, snowy morning, I know it’s hard to believe, but spring is  just around the corner.  I wanted to take this time to remind you all  that I am currently booking April & May sessions. As a matter of fact, April is filling up super fast already. (I only have 4 spots left.) So if you are hoping for a spring session this year please contact me soon.  And because you know I can’t post without a picture, here’s one more of the sweet Miss. E. Enjoy and have a great day!

Miss. E {9 Months}

This morning I had a fun session with the adorable 9 month old – Miss. E. What a cutie pie! We had a great in-home session. During these winter months, we are forced indoors but there is no reason we can’t still have a great session! I brought my standard backdrops and props so we could do some classic shots but then we mixed it up and did some fun shots in both the nursery and mom & dad’s bedroom. When I mention the idea of shooting in parent’s rooms I often get funny looks, resistant etc… But honestly, it make s a perfect backdrop for natural family shots. And today was no exception, I got some awesome shots of this sweet family on the their master bed. Thanks guys for a great session. Enjoy your sneak peek, can’t wait to show you the rest!

Here is one of the shots I was going on about above. Don’t you just LOVE this!
(Hopefully now I won’t get resistance when I mention the idea of using the master bed. LOL!)

This shot was with my backdrop and props. I LOVE the angelic look on her face.

And yes, Miss E is cousins with Miss. S.  I know, all this cuteness in one family, can you stand it? LOL!

Mine on Monday {2/15/10}

Good Monday morning everyone! Hope you all enjoyed a Happy Valentine’s Day yesterday. Here’s a picture of Allie in her new “big girl” bed. She’s just loving it! So I thought it would be a good idea to document this milestone for her. Seems like just yesterday, I was moving her from the bassinet to her crib. Where oh where does the time go??? Hope you all have a great day. I know I will. I am off to photograph a sweet 9 month old baby girl this morning. So stay tuned for the sneak peek.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Hope you are all spending the day with the ones you love. I will be. (I even have a date with my hubby today! Woohoo!) But before I rush off, I wanted to announce the winner of the “spread the love contest”. Thanks to all those who entered. The winner is: JoAnne Lambert. Congratulations JoAnne, I’ll be in touch with your gift certificate very soon!

I am also very excited to share an awesome promo video that my friend Adam of Seriously Addicted Pictures put together for me. (Thanks Adam, you rock!) It’s a behind the scenes look at what a couples session is like. And being Valentine’s Day and all, it only seemed fitting to reveal it today. So please, take a peak and even leave a comment. I’d love to know what you think.
Have a great day! Enjoy!

Spread the love contest!

Since my last contest was a big hit and lots of fun, I decided to run another one. With Valentine’s day fast approaching, I thought “spread the love” was an appropriate name for this contest. I wanted to mix it up a bit, so here’s how it works:

This contest will run from now until Saturday, February 13th at midnight EST. Winner will be announced on Sunday February 14th. The prizes will be based on the number of contestants. So the more people that enter, the more prizes I will giveaway. Hence the name, spread the love. So, please tell everyone you know, post on Facebook, Tweet etc… about this fun opportunity because the more people who enter the more chances you have to win.. To enter* you simply need to leave a comment below stating where or how you “spread the love”.

The Prizes, if we have:

The First Year – the baby plan

The first year of your baby’s life is an exciting time full of milestones. Like learning to crawl, sit, stand and then walk. With so much going on and your baby changing each day it is so important to document this special year. With that in mind, I’ve come up with a special baby plan to help preserve your sweet baby’s milestones.

Here’s how it works: book 4 or more sessions* during your baby’s first year and receive a FREE 8″x8″ album documenting his/her first year! (That’s a $150 value!)

And because you know I can’t post without a picture. Here’s another pic of sweet Miss. S. (Who by the way, is currently participating in the baby plan.)

*To qualify, all 4 sessions must be booked and completed on or before your child’s first birthday.
