I will no longer be updating this page, so if you'd like to see my most recent sessions like this one, then go check it out!

I met up with Gabby, her husband, and her parent last year. This year it was his parents' turn. They were in town for the weekend, so we couldn't reschedule, and there was a chance of rain that afternoon. So of course it rained! Luckily, we dodged it long enough for our session!

I can't believe how quickly spring has appeared. The flowers are blooming, the trees are budding, and the weather is already warm. I'm hoping it's here to stay. If you have a session coming up, you are probably digging through your closets or better yet... planning a shopping trip. While you are brainstorming, you can take a look at these spring What to Wear guides. I love the pops of color, and the understated way that they all coordinate. A huge thank you to Corina Nielsen for sharing your fabulous guides.

Porter is a rockstar baby. Really. This is my second time photographing him, and he has been awesome both times. I hope I'm not jinxing myself for his 1 year session, but I had to brag on him. Between him, his parents, and his adorable brother, I don't feel like I'm working at all.
I know I've been missing for the past week or so. We just returned home from a family vacation to Disney World! Now I've come home to another week of spring break, so there isn't much work getting done around here. While I'm trying to catch up, I thought I'd share a few before and afters from Sidney's session from a few weeks ago. At one time, I was petrified to share a straight out of camera (SOOC) shot, but now I love it. My goal is to get a well exposed shot initially, so that I can spend my editing time making an image pop rather than "fixing" it.

It's here! It's here! It may not feel like it everyday, but spring is here! As soon as I start seeing flowers blooming, I'm a happy girl. Add in a sweet birthday girl, and I'm over the moon. Miss Audrey was such a good girl for our session. As soon as the sun started to set, it got windy and chilly and she called an end to the session, but no before I got these precious images.
So... Mr. Walker had way more things in mind to do at the park other than taking pictures. He wanted to check out the trains, run and play, and basically avoid anything having to do with the camera. He had soooo much to say and made me laugh a gazillion times. I have to admit though, I questioned how successful this session would be (for a teeny, tiny second, I promise!) Then, I don't know how I did it, but I snuck off with that little guy and worked some kind of magic! After that, he was all smiles and giggles. I am loving this session from the colors to the perfectly coordinated outfits, everything turned out great. It didn't quite feel like spring that day, but it sure looks like it!
