Crafts, a kid, and a baby

Whew....I can't believe how busy I've been lately.  I started the craft side of my business and have picked up making headbands, bow ties, and am trying my hand at pacifier clips.  I'm having so much fun!!  And it's definitely keeping me on my toes.

I've also been helping my friend Cali Bear Pageants with the modeling/referral agency she has started!!  Using my photoshop skills for that :)  Kandi has been a great supporter of my business, and I love that we're partnering on something together!!

As for my photography, I got the chance to shoot the daughter of an old classmate of mine.  She's a spunky 5 year old, and the poses she gave me were great!!  She was also modeling a tutu from Cali Bear Pageants.  I think photographing children is something I'd like to more of!

I also got the chance to photograph a newborn.  Little Miss Brooklynn was such a little firecracker!  She was awake during most of the shoot and definitely made me work for the shots.  I loved her big, brown eyes!  And she had the prettiest complexion :)

Can't wait to see what's in store for me next!!

Janine & Richard

Shooting with Janine and Richard was a breeze.  They are such a sweet couple...they've been together for years, and you can tell just how comfortable they are with one another.  Janine is a natural model, and she had no trouble posing herself and looking fabulous!  Richard was a good sport too, he helped carry her clothes and even grabbed my camera bag a few times to get it out of the way  We got stuck in the middle of the farmer's market, but we rolled with it and got some neat pictures from it.

Miss Ashley

While in college, I had the pleasure of meeting one of the funniest girls EVER!  Ashley had an attitude you could spot a mile away, but all you could do was laugh when you were with her.  When she asked to do a shoot, I knew it was going to be fun.  Unfortunately, it was 100 degrees and both of us were near a heat stroke.  We improvised and took refuge in the library.  That may have been the most high fashion the public library has ever been!  The looks we got were priceless, but I had an absolute blast!

Merissa & Nathan

Two friends from work asked if I would do a couple's session for them.  They're the cutest couple ever, so I figured it would be a cinch.  I was right....except for Merissa making them 40 minutes late :)  They met while volunteering and have become such a sweet example of a Christian relationship.  You can see how much they care for one another in every shot; even the silly ones.  I also love how Merissa looks like Snow White...she's absolutely beautiful!  It was hard for me to pick which photos to edit because they were all so great.  I hope I get to shoot with them again in the future.

Aren't they just the cutest?
