Mud puddles...

Oh my gosh, my kids love mud. A few years ago, I did pictures with all 3 of my kids in a puddle and they are my all time favorite pictures ever. I don't think they will ever come down off my walls.. But after the big rainstorm this weekend, the kids were begging me to take their pictures in the puddle again, and of course, I let them. This time it was just the two younger kids, because my oldest is "way too old for that". Anyhow, we had a great time!

I'm an avid digital scrapbooker, so here are a few pages I did tonight.

Winegar Family

Last year, Penni won a contest on our Forever Photography facebook page and received a free session. They finally decided to use it this last weekend over the holiday weekend and it was perfect weather to do a session!!! What a great family they are, for such a large family, all of the kids were well behaved and so organized. It was awesome !

Check out what we came up with :)

My favorite.. :)

Horseplay.. ha ha.. :)

Based on her smile, she had no idea what he was doing behind her--ha ha..

First Annual Cutest Kid Contest

Hi guys, tomorrow I open up the Cutest Kid contest. Send me an email at foreverphotog@hotmail.com with your picture(s) (one of each child you wish to enter) and I will post it on the blog and on Facebook for voting. Just a few rules:

1. Photo must have been taken within the past year.

2. Photos may be snapshots or professional images, if your image has a watermark on it from another photographer, please do not crop it out--that's not nice and it will not affect the voting.

3. Please include your child's first name and age with your email.

4. Forever Photography clients--please do not scan in images (they look so much better if they are original) if you need a digital image to submit, let me know and I will submit it for you.

There will be 3 winners, 1 boy, 1 girl, one Forever Photography winner that I will choose. Winners will win a free photo session.

I will leave the photo submission part open 1 week. So get them in soon!

Ready.. Set...Go!

I <3 Seniors!!

I think the last good professional looking picture of Austin I got was 4 years ago, so I'm THRILLED to get some of him tonight with his clarinet. He's been playing for 2years now and he is awesome at it.

Check out my clarinet player in a ditch :)

His brother and sister trying to crash the shoot. Jeesh guys, don't trip over each other!

Meet Madison !!

Madison is the first ever Forever Photography Spokesmodel and she is absolutely adorable. She and her family are troopers, we braved a small window of time on a Sunday afternoon between storms to get her picture taken for her rep cards.

Her favorite food is hot dogs, she was born in May, and she is special because she is always happy, loves to play and be the center of attention.

Madison and her family will be out and about and will have special promotion cards they will be giving out, so if you want to book a session, get a card from Madison and get $20 off your session!

Grace from the meetup..

Yeah, just a few.. Ha ha.. We may have taken over a million images over the day. I photograph her a lot (she loves to model) but I get an entirely different kind of image than the other girls, she likes to mess with me--ha ha.. Imagine that-kids pushing their parents' buttons? :)

Anyway, here are a few of mine.


I got to hang out again with my photographer besties, Holly and Brandi this weekend! This time we decided to meet up half way from our homes which ended up being in Fairfield. We played around with OCF (off camera flash) and just had fun playing around with our cameras.

The girls did my headshots when we were in Chicago last month, so we did headshots of both Holly and Brandi this time. We also took pictures of my kids who came along for the ride (I'll share those later and you may have seen a few of them already on facebook.)

Holly and Brandi, I had a blast! :) Thanks for being so awesome!

We found this awesome multi colored building which housed an art gallery. It was awesome on the inside too.

A Rave....

"What I love most about Forever Photography is the unique moments that are captured. Kelly is super flexible and always has fun props to include in the shots. The prices are very fair and comparable. You NEVER feel like you're just a business deal after having your pictures taken. The fact that Kelly will travel to different locations to get the shots that you want is so awesome. Her ideas are fresh and fun. I recommend her to all my friends looking for a photographer!"

Thank you for your kind words, Mary Catherine!
