Filed under: just because,portraits — admin at 7:59 am on Thursday, March 31, 2011

I took Taylor’s senior pictures last year – and had a GREAT time with her! She messaged me about the mini-sessions last week and we got some GREAT shots!

She is SUCH a natural in front of the camera!

I love love LOVE that photo! I couldn’t pick between black & white or color …

I could seriously photograph her all day!!

I LOVE that shot!

Again – I couldn’t decide between black & white – so here is the color version …

Taylor – thank you SO much for scheduling with me – I always have a GREAT time at our sessions!!

Can’t believe I totally forgot to post a blog yesterday! Well – the time is coming where it won’t be updated everyday anyway!!

Angie also responded pretty quick to my FACEBOOK alert of mini-sessions!

I had never been a big fan – but I will definitely be holding more spur of the moment mini-sessions in the future!

GORGEOUS!!!!

Angie is a Lia Sophia consultant – you can contact her here!

LOVE that shot!

Angie – thanks so much for coming over and playing in the snow with me! I had a GREAT time!

This week we got ANOTHER snowstorm! ANOTHER!

Jared and I fasted TV last week because we (meaning mostly me) watch way too much! Monday and Tuesday I cleaned – by Wednesday I was so bored!

I decided to put it out on FACEBOOK that I would do $50 mini-sessions for anyone willing to come to my house – within the next few hours!

Ashley responded quickly and brought her puppas with her!

Seriously – look at her eyes! HOW GORGEOUS! I couldn’t choose between color or black & white – here you go …

It was a PERFECT day for pictures in the snow – not too cold and NO sun!

I love love LOVE animal shoots!

That shot might be my favorite – OH WAIT – and the next one!

WHOA! LOVE THAT ONE!

Ashley – thanks so much for your quick response and trudging through the snow and sleet with me!

I know *H* through her aunt – Miranda! We had a BEAUTIFUL day last week to take her photos!

*H* was shy throughout most of our session – as soon as I mentioned that she could come to the house and see Schrute when we were done – she was SOLD!

These are some of my favorite images of a kiddo EVER!

Such a natural in front of the camera!

OH MY! I love love LOVE those shots!

*O* FAMILY

Filed under: family,kiddos,portraits — admin at 8:34 am on Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Jackie and her family won the BEAUTIFUL contest last year! I have become friends with her over FACEBOOK and am so blessed to be in their lives!

We set up an appointment for Nicholas and his 2 year photos – but the weather was not cooperative – SURPRISE!

We finally managed to fit in a session in mid-March! I just love this little guy!

Nicholas was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and will be having his 4th heart surgery in July in Oklahoma City!

There will be a chicken BBQ in the Wal*Mart parking lot in Mansfield on May 28th to help benefit Nicholas and his trip and surgery!

I am still working out the details with Jackie – but am hoping to be able to offer mini-mini-sessions that day with the funds to directly benefit the *O* family!

Make sure to come out and support this BEAUTIFUL family!!

HE IS TOO CUTE!

He makes the craziest faces I have ever seen!

My heart just melts at those shots!

Jackie – thank you so much for welcoming me into your lives! Your little guys is such a miracle and a blessing!

I donated a Gift Certificate to the Winterball Benefit Pageant through a facebook friend! *M* won the photo session and we got together last week to take some shots of her.

She was not thrilled to be in front of the camera – at all! Thankfully her Grandpa was there and he helped us get some great shots!

Thanks again for having me in your home Trisha! Good luck with your pageants this year!
