Vendor Trade-In

So we all want amazing outfits and props for your sessions, but I hear it when people say they don't want to buy an expensive outfit or prop to only use it once! I HEAR YOU. So I have developed two solutions for you because I want your sessions to be amazing! The first is, I have a client closet. This means you can choose any of the clothes I have in that closet to use during your session FOR FREE! I will be following up with a blog post with images of everything in the client closet (and sizes available), but until then you can e-mail me with the age of your kids and sizes for them or you. It consists currently of a few maternity dresses, kimonos, baby's clothes and a few kids up to ...

G Family - Maternity Session - West Palm Beach, FL

For this session I was able to travel back down to Florida to take pictures of this beautiful new baby girl. This session was my 4th time photographing this amazing family (in Atlanta, Cleveland and West Palm!). I had previously done a maternity, newborn and 1 year session for their second son. I love working with them and watching these babies grow. I had to hold it together during our session when the momma gave me the greatest compliment I had ever received and said she couldn't see someone else photographing her family.

I can't begin to explain how obsessed with this session I am! This session came together over several weeks and then happened very quickly. Betsy came to me with a vision and we worked together to bring it to life. Betsy knew she wanted a green gown, snow, a flower crown and to hopefully shoot the session before her baby shower. I found and helped her order her gown from Sew Trendy Accessories (you can receive a 15% discount by using this link) and she made her crown (the day of her shoot!). I went to her property to scout locations. While looking around the property I was checking the weather and realized the weather was going to warm up for awhile and we were not going to have ...

I was thrilled to have this family in front of my camera for a beautiful family mini session a few weeks ago. These kiddos took a minute to warm up, but we were having a crabapple tossing contest before our time was up. This session is a prime example of why when your photographer strongly suggests to schedule your session around golden hour, you do so (wink wink:). I know sometimes it can be hard with kid's schedules to make golden hour work, but I have never had anyone tell me it isn't worth it and I make it work for my own family as well when we do photos. There is just something magical that happens with golden hour and a camera.   

Christmas Cards - yay or nay?

As a kid I always loved to see Christmas cards start to roll in this time of year and I couldn't wait to be able to send out my own someday. But as I got to the phase of life when I would send them out it seemed like people were trading in snail mail cards for social media posts and likes. Not that social media is bad, but there is something different about someone thinking to send you a card than to just see a post online for the whole world. I admit, we send out quite a small list of cards every year, they are costly and postage adds up too, but I still love to send out some beautiful images of our family and sincere well wishes for the new year. My favorite part about Christmas cards ...
