Sneak Peek: Rozi {SENIOR}

Rozi is a friend of Tate, one of my 2010 W.F. West Senior Reps. I was thrilled to photograph this very photogenic young lady out in Adna, at Rose Park. It’s always fun to get out of my comfort zone and find new places to shoot, and this session was no exception. Rozi, I had a blast and I hope you love your images!

Note to future seniors: this outfit is a STAR. Simple jeans, a white tank, and then the perfect cardigan! Gorg!

I am really digging this one!

And, this one. There is something about the simplicity…

Who doesn’t love to play on the swing?

Rozi’s only request was to get some pictures in a field of flowers…we don’t have many of those in full bloom, but we found one!

Ok, so I also love this one. How fierce does she look?

Sneak Peek: Bria {MATERNITY}

Bria and I have been friends for a long time…somewhere around 7 years. When I first met her she was dating Michael, and it has been fun to watch her date him, marry him, and now they are getting ready to welcome baby #2 into their family. Bria is one of those people who has that glow about her every day, and so much more when she is expecting. This is going to be a big post, because I could NOT narrow down my favorites.

This is my favorite. She glows, I tell you.

Bria really wanted Keziah to be in some of the picturs, and after she waited so patiently for over an hour, she got her chance to shine!

This little cutie is Bria’s niece, and I could not resist taking a picture of her eating her first bowl of grits.

Bria, thank you for allowing me to capture you during this special time for your family. Who would have imagined back in the day when we worked the farmers markets together that we would be having all this fun together years later?? I cannot wait to see little Luke when he makes his debut!

Sneak Peek: Blake {NEWBORN}

I adore photographing newborns. I am and have always been a baby person, they are just so peaceful and squishy and cute. (I am pretty sure I say this after each newborn session I get to photograph…) Blake is the new arrival of my sister’s boyfriend’s best friend…and he is adorable! He made me work for each asleep shot I captured, but made up for it by being so stinkin’ wrinkly and sweet. He also LOVES his hands…he would shove a hand or two into his mouth, and make the cutest grunting noises. Thank you so much Ryan and Shelby for sharing your little man with me!

This is my favorite. Mr Blake was happiest during his session when he was held, being fed/had his binky in, and was wrapped up and warm. I love that in this one, his binky had finally come out and look at that wrinkly forehead!

These next two are my other favorties. How cute, and notice his little fist that has to be up near his mouth? Too cute.

Peek-a-boo!

Sneak Peek: Lindsey {LITTLE WONDER}

I cannot say enough how much fun I have each month when I get to photograph Lindsey! She is so adorable, and she really makes me work for the smiles. Lindsey is all smiles and happy, until I point my camera at her…and then she’s all…OH-NO-YOU-DON’T?! But somehow, we manage to squeeze some smiles out of her. And lately, Lindsey and studio shots are not best friends. So we did all we could inside, and then we headed outside (stopping along the way to capture some of the AMAZING light near the front door/window of our new house). It has been so much fun to capture her each month, to see her grow and her hair change color and get a touch curly in the back. I cannot wait to do a collage/album with all the pictures I’ve taken, from January to her birthday that is coming up soon.

Ok, so this first picture…I LOVE IT! Nikki knows me so well, and when she saw this shirt at Target, she said she HAD to get it. I adore it. And, so just happened to go all diva on me, making the perfect picture…

I love how this one captured a split second of peace, in between the squealing and crawling and talking…

This is the beginning of the to-die-for light near my front door this afternoon.

And this one is my favorite expression of her’s from this session. I love her as she is…playful, coy, sweet.

Newborn: Mailey

This adorable little girl is only 6 days old, and she was such a great sleeper, if not a great curler! I met her parents through friends from church, and knew of her dad from our local youth worker’s group. I was really excited to do a newborn session because it has been a while, and they are just so much fun to shoot and edit! What is better than a scrunchy, sleepy, cuddle, teeny newborn?!

newbornphotography_mailey01

This scale is a recent find, and one I can’t wait to do more shoots with. I love this little antique/shabby chic store in town, Cattywampus. While we were in there last week I came across this scale and knew I had to have it! Thanks Mailey and Company for breaking it in!

This is another shot I love! She looks so peaceful!

I love this hat, and I was so excited to be able to use it again! It’s called an ‘happy elf’ hat, and I just adore it (and I’m thinking I might need one my size before winter rolls around again!)

This little cutie is killing me with all her adorableness!
