Welcome 2018!

Okay, okay, I know I'm a little late posting this, but it has been a CRAZY season! Starting in October until the New Year, I have been busier then ever before, and I have all of you to thank for that! I've met so many wonderful new families & clients this year and got to photograph my return clients (and try not to be in disbelief by how big all these kiddos are getting!). Just want to give you all a little update on the season and what's coming up:

First for some awesome news: as you hopefully know, at the beginning of the season we pledged to donate a portion of all sales from October & November to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). This cause is so important to me because I was diagnosed as a juvenile diabetic at a young age and I'm also a member of their Youth Leadership Committee! Not only did we meet our goal, we exceeded it by $50! Thank you so much to everyone who helped this happen!

Next, I of course have to give a shout out to all the amazing families I photographed this season. Everyone was super sweet, relaxed, and just my kind of client! Here's a few of my seasons favorites! (and if your's isn't here, don't worry it's probably still one of my faves because there was alotttttt haha!)

Our Christmas Minis were also a hit this year! This was my favorite Christmas set yet with a red and green rustic theme that included vintage sleds, a frosted tree, and lots of plaid. (In case you can't tell, I loveeee plaid!)

Now for what's coming up! We are having superrrr cute spring mini-sessions on 3 exclusive dates: March 10th (just in time for Easter), April 15th, and May 27th! Keep an eye of our Facebook and Instagram pages for when we post the official set next week, but for now here's a small sample.

It's January, so I always say now is the perfect time to update your business portrait! We offer sessions in our studio and have a full selection of color backdrops as well as outdoor scene backdrops, so we don't have to get too chilly outside.

It's June Already???

Hi everyone!

I wanted to make a post updating everyone on the crazy spring I had and let you know what's coming up! This spring has been one of my favorite yet, I announced a new Mommy & Me Mother's Day Special that lead to some really adorable photos! Here's some from two of my favorite session!

And did I mention these sessions came with the cutest photo lockets? (I probably did because I'm in love with these lockets! haha!)

I also did a bunch of Communion Sessions this spring! I love photographing kids who are making their communion because they always look so beautiful and angelic in their dresses & veils or little suits!
These photos of the lovely Ava were taken at Fiddler's Elbow Country Club! The grounds there are gorgeous and we got there just in time for the tulips!

I also caught this adorable moment between Communion girl Bella and her sister Lia!

Lastly I'm hoping to do a pet session special this summer! It's still in the works but we're looking at special sessions for your furry family members! We're even trying to get a shelter in on the action as a way to give back. The sessions would be available all summer long and be available at my studio or on location.

There's so many exciting things coming up! If you have any questions about anything going on this summer let me know! I'm always happy to talk :)

Happy Summer and see you soon!
