 Emilia's family wanted to do outdoor
portraits, but her session was rained
out - TWICE!
 So, they decided to go ahead and bring her
into the studio.
 We got lots of nice smiles and
beautiful expressions!
 Of course, Emilia is a little angel
so smiles are to be expected!
But - I wanted a serious look, too!
When you smile, your eyes get scrunched and
Emilia has such beautiful eyes,
I wanted a shot to highlight them.
Just look at those eyes!
Aren't they beautiful?

And after this session - the sun decided
to make it's appearance, so we
did get to squeeze in an
outdoor session, too!
I'll share photos from that, soon!

Olivia's Accordian Mini

 This is Olivia's Accordian Mini!
I selected the Berry Berry Red cover
to go along with her little
lace petti-romper and
the fun dots background papers.
It is fun and unique
just like Olivia~!
I just love it!

Olivia's Photo Shoot

 Olivia was all smiles when
it was her turn to do pictures!
 But then, Olivia is normally
all smiles!
 She also tried to get others to
smile along with her as she is
doing here in a game of
Are you smiling?

I call this girl "Smiley"
because she smiles so much!
But who can blame her.
With a smile so pretty it
makes sense to show it off!

Grace's Accordian Mini

 This is Grace's Accordian Mini! Isn't it adorable?
I just love the way it captures her personality
so sweetly!
When you flip it over, this is the
opposite side!
I selected the white moire cover
although I had my doubts,
but it is just BEAUTIFUL!

Grace's Photo Shoot

 After doing Brilyn's pictures and
making an accordian mini,
I wanted new pictures of Grace and Olivia, too!
 So here are a few of Grace!
 The borders are the designs I selected
to use on her accordian mini!
 With Grace's I did a pink page
and then a patterned page
and then a pink page
and then a patterned page
an so on!
It turned out REALLY cute!

Brilyn's Accordian Mini Album

I just love these little albums!
They're not actually album - albums. They're
accordian minis.
This first picture shows the design. There are
four pictures in the front and six in back
for a total of 10 photos.
You could even make collages if you wanted more.
 And the photo below is the final product.
It's a wallet sized, accordian booklet.
There are various cover choices and
pages can be designed any way you like.
They'd make great little stocking stuffers
or Christmas gifts for

Brilyn - 18 Months And Cute As Ever!

 Brilyn is getting big!
 She's now almost 18 Months Old
and as cute as she can possibly be!
 She's smart, too!
 And so much fun!
 When she was a little baby I wished she
could stay small... she was just sooooo sweet!
 And now that she's bigger, I think I'd still
like to keep her at the stage she's in
right now. She's just so fun!
 It seems that whatever stage she's in is the
best and I want it to last forever.
I guess that's loving her
just the way she is!

Cody & Kayla's Engagements

 This is Cody & Kayla!
 Don't they look like they belong together?
 I love it that they're COUNTRY!
 And while shooting I played a bit with lens
flares. I actually prefer pictures without lens flares,
but the lens flare gets twice the "likes" on
facebook, so it's what the general public likes!
Another lens flare, with a sun induced haze! 
And my favorite photo from the shoot!
What is it about these big round haybales and the
vivid blue sky that attracts me so much?
I just love this one!
And, I think it's going to be a COUNTRY Inspired
wedding, so hopefully there will
be some beautiful things to shoot!

Some Favorites From Amber's Wedding

 Here are a few of my favorites
from Amber & Marco's Wedding.
 She was a beautiful bride!
 I love the interaction between them.
 Aren't they just super cute?
 The details of her dress.
 Her dress... hanging from a beautiful chandilier.
I love the warm lighting.
A totally unposed candid of Amber getting ready!
Their beautiful rings!
This was a really fun wedding. There were
12 bride's maids and 12 groomsmen,
two flower girls and a ring bearer
and EVERYONE was easy
going and great to work with.
I totally enjoyed it!
