Meet sweet little Eli! The second from my “baby boom” week he was SO good for me. Sweet little man was sleepy and curly for sure. I just adored working with him and his Mom and Dad. It is always fun to play with babies I am not going to lie, but this family was so filled with love for this little guy it was really my pleasure. I am so glad Mama called me to set things up while he was still itty bitty too, well as itty bitty as a 9lb plus baby can be!

So off to the important part right, the photos!

Kristina thanks again for contacting me and welcoming me into your home. Your little man is just adorable, and your home was so filled with love. I wish you all nothing but the best, and can not wait to see your little dude grow. As always I love to offer my new clients a blog challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post I will throw in a set of mini wallet brag books for you. Perfect for showing off a certain little boy. I hope you like your sneak peek,I will have the entire gallery for you very soon.

    Debbie - What gorgeous photos! My favorite is the one in the turquoise hat. Next favorite includes the dog! Oh, the one where he looks like he is smalling. They are all GREAT! Beautiful family!

    P.S. Bridget looks a bit nonplussed. :-)

    Shirley West - The photos are outstanding, but then, so is Eli, as are his parents! We all love him so much. He is just adorable! Being the grandmother (soon to be “Nana” with Eli once he starts talking), I would love a “Brag Book”.

    David Snyder - Lovely photos, very beatific. And Dad looks so happy!


A few weeks back I had the pleasure of working with a local medical group. I have done artist head-shots before, and business/group portraits too, but this was my first time working with the medical profession. The physicians with Mt Scott ENT & Sleep Medicine were wonderful to capture. The whole office was a pleasure to work with.Who knew business portraits & head-shots could be fun to do!

Here are a few of our results:

Such nice people! I am working on a new site these days and plan to add an entire section to my buiensess portrait/head shot work. If your office needs some fun updated shots let me know! I would love to help you or your office get your best look out there.:)

I let one slip earlier on the blog, and now as promised here is the full official sneak peek of the ever so darling Mr. David Ream. He really was a little red-haired angel for me.  Once we got him to sleep he let me pose and move him so easily! It is like he knew I was an old friend.:)I have been working with his parents for a few years now first on their engagement photos then their wedding, so it was my honor to capture them as a family. Sweet David stole my heart, I am of course always a sucker for a redhead, but his sweet little face and tiny feet took it over the top. It was so great to see Matt & Meghan as parents as well, naturals already! I could not be happier for this little family of 3.:)

So stop with the talking already, geez. Lets check out some cute baby photos shall we!

Matt & Meghan thanks again for keeping me in the loop and having me out to do your darling boys newborn photos. He is just the sweetest! I had a great time seeing you all again too, I can not wait to see this little guy grow. You two are such natural parents already, what a lucky little guy he is to have you two! I really could not be happier for you all.:)Annnnnnnd! You know what time it is right?! Blog comment time! So, you know the drill, if you can get 30 people to comment on this post I will be gifting you a set of darling mini brag books to show off a certain red-haird angel baby. So please leave some love people!

Hey Blog Readers!

Along with editing lots, and lots and LOTS of cute baby photos, today I am putting in a very special canvas order. The owner of Charlotte’s Weddings & More contacted me last week wanting to use some of the photos from our Rural Beauty shoot for her store. After meeting we thought blowing up some canvases for the walls would be the perfect fit!

This one is going to be printed as a huge  30×40 inch canvas, it is going to look so great!


So today I am putting in a large order for her, I can not wait to see it all in print! Woo Hoo!

    Kathy - Ummm, old news…you totally ARE a big deal! This is gorgeous!

  • June 13, 2011 - 11:30 pm

    Eva - What a beautiful picture! And I love Charlottes Weddings and more! 3 of us girls who did the boudoir shoot with you, got our dresses from their :)


The session has been in the works for a while now! My time was a gift from this families dear friend and real estate agent to celebrate their beautiful new home. I knew going this family would be fun. I had met Kira the mom before briefly and knew I liked her, but I was not ready at all for how lovely, sweet and beautiful her girls would be! The whole family was great to  work with, even puppy got into the action. Their new home was beautiful and had some killer flowers in bloom to boot! All around we had a great time giggling and snapping away. I just could not wait to show these off!

Here are a few of my favorites so far:


Kira thanks again  for having me into your home to capture your beautiful family. Your little girls are stunning and so sweet, I hope you love these as much as I do. I have so many more to show you, and soon! And as new clients I have to hook up the comment challenge, if you can get 30 people to comment on this blog post (yes you can comment too!) I will throw in a cute little wallet album perfect for showing off those sweet little girls of yours. I will have the whole set for you soon.
