I met his mom through the United Way shoot when she came in with her friends from work. What a cool family they are! Mr. Hayden was super smiley and just an awesome kid in the studio. So here are some sneak peeks for 'ya :)
What a beautiful rocking chair they brought in. I just love that she is sucking her fingers on this one :)

Crystal's blue dress along with the location I chose earlier in the day rocked! I literally drove by this place and was in awe and asked Crystal if she would mind (it is quite public near a busy road) and she was a trooper and didn't mind at all. When Crystal showed me her blue dress when she showed up to the studio, I knew it was a the perfect color and location!
I will save you the pictures of what I looked like after I layed in a giant nest of cockle burs taking the second image I posted.. It was awful. LOL. But I have to say, I was loving what I was seeing in the camera and didn't care too much!
Crystal is also one of my Maternity Spokesmodels and is trying to win a big prize based on new customer referrals, so if you know Crystal, ask her about Forever Photography!

I edited these with a little bit of a vintage artsy look. I love it!
I processed this one as 20x10 crop (my favorite size for special images)
Wouldn't these make a wonderful gift for Mother's Day? *hint hint!*

So, from April of last year.... This is William. I have this image hanging in the studio now, it is one of my favorite images I have taken. I didn't have studio space last year, so I rented space and set up a backdrop stand and lights for a few hours. I say I, but I really mean my clients helped me setup and my husband and kids did too. I couldn't fit the backdrop paper in my car so my husband had to drive it up to the space for me in his truck. I rented 3 hours at at time which gave me time for two sessions and tear down and set up for the day and it was crazy packed time in there. But that builds character--right? :)
Oh Lookie--even an old watermark. LOL. Look how far the logo has come in one year :)
Thanks for looking :)

A mini session is for the client who just needs a few pictures, but doesn't want a ton to choose from. Mini sessions are only different from a full session in the amount of time it takes to shoot them and the amount of proofs you get to choose from.
Mini sessions take about 30 minutes (give or take) and you will have approximately 12 proofs to choose from.
Mini sessions are not available for newborns.
I also tried a different editing style. Very vintage and summmery. I played with the haze of the sun and had some fun. I will tell you, I love shooting into the sun. :)
"little" Grace as I call her. Little because she is younger. Last year, when "little" Grace grew out of her clothes, she gave them to my Grace. This year, they are the same size.
Wow! what a difference a few weeks makes, it is super green out now and there are leaves growing in on the trees now..
