My Dream Come True Shoot

I've been dreaming of taking these two kiddies pictures for awhile got to the point that every outfit or prop I was buying had to be in their sizes and their faces were always in my mind. I put all my faith in the old saying, "if you buy it, they will come" and I am thrilled to report that the saying is TRUE!!

The opportunity came and it was really a dream come true and so much fun!
P.S. Check out the mini top hat I made! I'm such a nerd...a proud proud nerd!

Posing Like a Pro!

Oh my month old and somehow still an ANGEL to shoot! I was a little nervous going into this session as newborn sessions get the best results the younger the baby is, ideally the baby would be between 4-7 days old. So I was a little nervous knowing Cole was already several weeks old. I couldn't have been more surprised at what an absolute doll he was. So cooperative, so patient and so calm throughout...and man did it pay off!! These are some of my all time favorite newborn pix ever!!

Going Away Party for Saylie! sister and brother-in-law moved out of state and much to my dismay they took my niece(their daughter) with them. The last day they were here in Virginia I decided to take Saylie to Frying Pan Park to show her the animals and have one last bit of crazy fun with her before our hang sessions get more and more staggered.

Saylie always surprises me with how fearless she is. Not once was she ever scared. With each new animal she saw she'd get more excited and greet them with a smile and a wave.
I couldn't get enough of her on her tip toes. So cute to see her use them to get a better view!

Grandma came with and thank goodness she did, there's no way I could've helped Saylie stand on the bench, feed the cows and goats, while hanging over the stall's like I did to get the good shots.

Here's one awesome shot I couldn't have gotten without Grandma...

Here are a few more sweet ones of my sweet Saylie bug.
I can't look at this last one and not smile...EVER!

Talk About Style!

I love when people let their own personal style determine and steer the style of their session. That's when you get the goods! I love this series from Elisa & Danny's session! I just can't get enough of them.

Photos with Style!

Miss Anna Simone!

Watch out world here comes Miss Anna Simone! First off, is that a name or is that a name? Anna Simone. I just love it. This photo shoot was so fun!!!! Anna was looking for some head shots to help her further her career in Musical Theater. We found some good spots around town and easily had dozens of great images in just a few minutes.

She was such a natural and had such a fun personality the shoot quickly took some of my favorite turns...the ones where I can let my imagination run wild and try new funky a mini top hat I've been obsessing over for awhile now.

...also maybe a pettiskirt...
...a vintage chair or corduroy fedora...
and she rocked them all!!
Here's her celebratory jump that the shoot was finally over!! She was such a great sport posing it up for hours in the freezing cold. Thanks Anna what a fun shoot!
