Another change in 2011 are some new additions to the portrait books I offer. I have always offered and LOVED custom designed coffee table books. From family photos to new additions, I love the idea of photos in book form. Well this year things are getting a little bit more creative. After adding some funky & cute designs to my mini wallet books last year I did the same to the coffee table books. They will still be offered in simple and clean designs, but I am also adding some cute more whimsical designs to the mix.

Here is a newborn book I just put together.

Cute right?!

More to come on that front!

    Kristin - Cute, Em! It’s fun to see how your books are laid out on the blog! : )


My how time flies, just yesterday I was taking photos of a sweet little newborn, and then a sparkly eyed 6 month old, I can not believe my favorite little Ruby Girl is One! To celebrate we ran around one of her families favorite haunts McMinnamin’s Kennedy School in NE Portland. I love all the art in that building, a different backdrop everywhere you turn! Ruby was on the GO too. Already walking she was all over the place, and making me work for her sweet smiles. I had a great time playing with her, I am a lucky girl to have such a great job for sure.

Here are few of my favorites:

Check out that smile. Such a sweet girl.

Like I said Miss Ruby was all over the place. No sitting with Mom & Dad for me, she was up and interested in my camera.

clearly this little lady is loved.

Gah she is so cute! I love those sparky blue eyes.

did I mention she was on the go? We ran outside for a while and she was all over that.


This one cracks me up, I am not sure if she was yelling or trying to eat my camera, but she was enthusiastic.

I dare you not to smile back at this cutie.

We lucked into some cold my decent weather. I loved catching Mary & Chris fiddling with her hat here. Ruby is just soaking in the attention.

Cute family!

And one last shot of missy blowing raspberries at me.

Mary & Chris thanks again for meeting up with me and braving the cold. I hope you like the peek. I will have the gallery up asap. And you know I love the blog challenge. If you can get 25 people to comment on this blog post there is another mini brag book in it for ya! So leave some love folks.:)
