Trying to get a three year old to look at the camera isn't all that easy. I saw him slip a few rocks into his pocket between shots so in order to get his attention I mentioned them.  As you can see he is just about to show NaNa his collection and voila, looks right at the camera!

This one needs a frame!

I had fun taking these whimsical shots of my brother and his family. I am looking forward to using this frame more and pushing my creativity.

Baby David

A sweet moment captured between Mother and child. I love the way he looks so content on her shoulder.



The Story of Life

I love these type images, because I feel they capture the essence of parenthood. Standing together, serving and protecting the children who've blessed our lives . When it seems as though time is standing still and phases like the terrible twos or little league ball might never end, the truth is time is moving too quickly. When our children grow up and make a life of their own we will say the time went so quickly, like a blur.

Meet Charlie, my nephew . Isn't he adorable and charming with his curls and wide grin? He is a pro in front of the camera and quite busy at age three, so I was thrilled to get this shot of him.

My nephew is such a joy and so easy to capture. I couldn't resist bringing this outfit home when I saw it because he is commonly refered to as our Chunky Monkey

Everyone know when a baby is born we all try to see who it looks like. We wonder whose nose the baby has and whose mouth. Well in the case of this sweet newborn, anyone who knows this family can see whose features this baby has.

Black and White

Hickman Family

The rest of the story goes.... brother has a cut under one eye and the other eye is black from a school accident. Baby sis is sick and has a fever later that night even though she looks perfectly happy here. I adore her little crinkled toes in this one.

Christmas Cards

Here are two examples of what your card could look like.

I choose traditional colors on this card front example.

I choose more whimsical colors for the back example.

What do you get when you combine a crooked smile, a snaggle tooth grin and a little angel face? You get pure CUTENESS!

This sweet family is from my hometown and they were so relaxed and easygoing during todays session. As you know, with families this size there is usually more to the story, so stay tuned...

Baby David

This family has an amazing story of God's faithfulness and love. It was my pleasure to photograph their third child, definitely a precious gift from Heaven.
