Models Needed!

Exciting update! During the month of June I will be photographing babies and children (primarily girls, but we may need a boy or two) modeling products for a local business. Items include bows, jewelry and more so if your child would like to participate drop me an email!

First come, first serve with preference to clients I have photographed before!



I am trying to enjoy this slow week before the explosion that is about to occur. After Saturday I will be able to share two bridal sessions with you, plus on Saturday I will be shooting a wedding, and over the next week several more sweet babies and children. So in order to keep you all tied over until my blogging picks up then, I decided to run a little special every day until Saturday!

From now until Sunday (May 31st) at midnight you may purchase a gift certificate for yourself or someone else for a newborn portriat session at the discounted price of $50.00, that is half off the normal price! So if any of you know anyone who is pregnant, what better gift than to buy them pictures they will tresure forever! Purchase this certificate by itself or go in with a friend, but buy them now!



As all of my Bradley moms know, I LOVE to teach. I got into teaching childbirth classes because I love getting to know people, how they learn and challenging myself to make the material fresh every time.

Over the last two years I have seen the number of moms and dads with digital SLR cameras explode; which brings me to the sad part. Many of them are using these cameras on “Auto.” The mistake here is thinking that a camera with lots of mega  pixels will allow you to take quality photographs of your children. It makes me sad to see parents spend a lot of money on a camera that is being using like a cheaper point and shoot camera.

So I am thinking about teaching some classes on the basics of your cameras and how to take great pictures of your children. I will also cover topics like resources for basic editing, and how to resize your images to use on your blog, Facebook, or photo sharing site, and how to choose the best equipment for your money.

This would not be a class on how to become or replace your professional photographer. For more info on that check out this website.

Email me if you would be interested in attending a class like this. Brian and I are thinking if there are dads interested he may teach them while I work with the moms or something like that. This would be a class geared toward parents, but could also be taken by grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and the like.

And speaking of taking pictures of your kids, here are some of mine!  Autumn is pulling up on everything now and Josiah is obsessed with learning all the letters of the alphabet. They are both so different and so  much fun. Here they are playing out in the yard after a all the rain we keep having!



Cooper 3 Months

Here are some more great expressions of Cooper from today.

Oh and Kristen and Matt, I forgot to tell you that Brian and I have a funny story about you, Matt:

The afternoon Brian took me out to ask me to be his girlfriend in highschool, we were in the youth room at the church and you randomly walked in carrying a huge box of clothes to dump off at the church. It kind of broke up Brian’s flow of telling me how I was the kind of girl he wanted to marry someday and made the whole event even more awkward as it already was for two teenagers. 🙂

We both just started laughing after you left the room at the randomness and it gave us a little something to clear the tension. Thanks Matt, it is part of our awkward life story we can always look back and laugh on.








Cooper Sneak Peak

Today I met up with Cooper who is about to turn 3 months old. I caught him at a bad time so we are going to meet again tomorrow, but here are a couple from today. Love that hair!
