i love my job.

Really how could I not working with sweet baby girls like this one. Baby sister was sweet, sleepy and so gentle. On top of sweet baby girl I also got to work with her super adorable big brother who was also gentle and adorable. The entire family was lovely and a joy to work with. I should have known the kids would be dolls. I remember their mama from long ago. She and I shared a rural bus route as kids. It was so lovely to reconnect and meet her darling little ones.

Here are a few of my favorites from our session.



Danielle thanks again for making the trek all the way up to the studio. I had a great time seeing you again and meeting your sweet babies. They are both simply adorable. She is a doll. I look forward to seeing you all again soon as she gets even bigger. As you know I love my little blog post challenges. If you can get 30 people to comment on this little post I will throw in a darling set of mini brag books. Perfect for showing off a little lady and darling big brother.

It is always such a huge compliment when I am hired by wedding industry friends.

Recently I was hired by Sunny of Puddle Jumpin Cards to do some new head-shots & product photography for her. Sunny does interesting and creative wedding invitations and paper products. We have had the pleasure of working together a few times. She does some amazing work, it really was my pleasure to capture it.

I just love doing head shots for other creatives, it is always so fun!

Here are a few of my favorites:

Sunny thanks again for meeting me and being so fun to work with! Drinks and immature jokes again soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have to admit it, I am a big geek for love. I mean clearly, I take photos of people in love for a living. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I just wanted to pop in and say Happy Valentines do to all you blog readers. I hope yours is filled with love and sugar, just how is should be!

I am not going to lie, getting a wedding or session published on a much beloved wedding blog makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. And don’t you couples lie, it is fun to see your photos on a larger site getting all kinds of love. Let’s be honesty, it’s just fun!

Last week I had the pleasure of having Natalie & Kevin’s August 2011 Bridal Veil Lakes wedding published on the always lovely & inspiring DIY Bride.

You can check it out here!

Really, the cuteness just needs to stop in this family. I have been photographing them for many years now. First a bump, then a sweet baby, then a big boy, then another bump, then another super adorable baby. Well little sister has grown a bit in the last 6 months, and cuter than ever. They really need to stop the cuteness, it is just ridicules.

Here are a few of my favorites from our most recent session…

Julie & Vince thanks again for coming up and sharing your darling kiddos with me again. I just adore your babies. I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek. So you know how we do it around here right? #30 comments on this little blog post and a set of darling brag books are all yours. ๐Ÿ™‚
