Thanksgiving is my busiest weekend of the year! I was shooting back to back this weekend, even shooting a family of 14 (which turned out awesome!). I got to photograph one of my favorite people, ever! Miss Nancy as my kids call her, she’s amazing, both on the inside and outside. She’s a total knock out, I can never get over her beauty, partly because she has such a charming personality that once you get to know her she only looks more beautiful then before. She’s so sweet and extremely kind, more reserved then you would first think and she’s got a heart of gold. She was my first maternity client! OMG I was so nervous that day, freaking out about lighting and positioning. She was so amazing, she just made it all work and from there on she has always been a favorite subject of mine. She’s pregnant again and I’m already planning her maternity shoot in my head. I want something dark while also vivid. Can’t wait!

Can you believe these two are just half the cuteness in this family … four adorable little girls who have the most amazing eyes! Their older twin siblings didn’t make it for this shoot, instead it was all about the little ones. We had a lot of fun, I had to bring Madison to the shoot because she was home from school. Having Madison with me is always an extra challenge, just because she’s not the main focus of the shoot all of sudden she wants to be in every photo! I had to compromise with her on how many she could jump in for. She is a lot of help in making the kids smile and keeping the mood really up which allows me to capture real moments vs forced smiles. So there are pros and cons.

Two boys, two girls … how perfect! This family is so special, not only because they are wonderful friends but also because they are all so warm and loving. From the moment you meet them you feel like you’ve known them forever, conversion just flows so easily and they leave you excited to see them again. This shoot was shot at their new house and the possibilities were endless, it was kinda overwhelming, I was like a kid in a candy store and eye candy was everywhere! I had such a great time and it’s always a treat to photograph these little beauties!

Now that all my maternity clients have started to have their babies I’ve beginning to meet some of the cutest little kids ever! Just yummy!! This holiday season I’ll get to photograph many first time family shoots with the new addition. It’s exciting to see families forming and all the new additions. This little guy was cracking smiles left and right the second I saw him, which I was surprised about because you usually don’t see that until about 8 months and this big guy was only 4 months old. Of course by the time we got him dressed and ready to go he was more focused on the big black thing in front of my face. He gave me some great eye contact

I know so many pregnant women! Soon there will be lots of little babies floating around my various circles of friends. My neighbor was so gracious and made Madison the most awesome birthday cake for our farm theme party. She pulled off all the details and the cake was the center of the party decor. I love her for it and to repay her for her cake duties I shot maternity pictures of her. We did a mini session in her home. I tried to mix in romantic, intimate, classic and elegant.

the last thing I really need is more pictures of Madison. Honestly, the child must have 20,000 pictures on our computer. It’s insane. I just can’t help but not photograph her all the time, she’s my own personal muse and the fact that she loves clothes so much makes it that much easier to click away. We had some time to spare before we had to pick up Clover from the groomers so we decided to play “dress up” and shoot some pictures. It’s a location I had never used before and the lighting was incredible! Both outfits are made by Paper Wings.

I’m looking to get this week kicked off with a bang! I’ve got emails to respond too, letters to be mailed and a house full of no kids (whew!) I’m thinking positively and pushing myself today. Watch out day! Lets just hope I don’t crash mid way through
I recently shot a family of 5. Mom was irresistibly beautiful, on the inside and outside! The kids were so much fun, they really let loose and had a good time which for me is so important. I love to work with families that have energy and emotion. They gave it all to me
I love this series of Mom with her boys … isn’t she so cute!?!?

I love maternity shoots! I say that every time … but really I love them! This time I got to photograph not only a mommy but her precious 2 year old as well. I’ll keep it short, Madison is yelling for me to go and get our car washed (she just wants her ice cream she gets every time we go to the car wash!).

I am sitting here practically falling asleep at the computer. Yawn, I’m so tired!!! I went wine tasting during the day with family so I think the wine is creeping up on me and making me very sleepy.
I have to share this session because I love it so much. I have so much to share and several sessions that are awesome, along with some fun family pics of my kiddos. One of the hardest things about blogging is choosing the pictures to share. This young ladies gallery had so many awesome pictures that I could have shared 50! I kept it to a minimum though. I love my clients, I cannot wait to photograph this little beauty again!
