Kids only sessions....

I just wanted to say thank you for all the great responses I have received for the kids only sessions in November. I am so excited to be doing this, and the days are going to be so much fun. I have some fun things in store to get those really fun creative shots.... I am pretty much filled with the exception of just a few time slots on certain days. So, if there is any anybody that would like to make these sessions, shoot me an e-mail. I have the dates, information and locations posted down on the blog. Just scroll down and browse through the blog. I look forward to seeing all the little ones in November...

Four + One

Four families, one beach and a love session--all in one day. Wow... what a great day. How I just love my "office space", as the "G" family put it. They were right. How cool it is to drive to the beach on a Sunday morning, take pictures of some really cool families, play with their children on the sand, make new friends and to enjoy a beautiful warm autumn day seaside. It works for me.
Families, I hope you had as much fun as I did. Thank you for a great day.
Your slideshows will be up very soon...

HSM. watch out.....

Can anyone guess what Madeleine is going to be for Halloween???...

Okay, obviously that was not a hard one if you know Madeleine.... Gabriella she will be... and of course you can not have a Gabriella without a Troy. :) Yes, Ryder will be the next big heart throb. My Godmother who just loves my children to death was over and said. "Wow, Ryder is going form a cute little shark (last years costume) to a teenage hear throb in one year. My, how time flies". I could not stop laughing because he is only 19 months. Stay tuned for pictures..

Day out with "D"

meet my inspiration "D"
When I first started to get serious about photography and making it my own, I thought ok. Well, If I am going to start doing this, I need to start getting a portfolio together. I needed other kids to take pictures of, other than my own. I would ask cousins, friends. friends of friends, anyone. So our neighbor "D" started to come over and just hang out and play in the front yard for hours at a time. I thought Hmmm. Camera..... I started to just shoot. Well, that was 4 years ago. Look at him now.
Thanks neighbor for a fun afternoon...

A girl can never have too many hats (of course, that goes for shoes too) But, today was a hat day. Isn't she adorable? She arrived and was all ready for the camera. Little Miss "M" is only 10 months old, but I know she is going to be our next superstar. Monika, here is a very early sneak peak. Enjoy!

I am so grateful for having had the opportunity to go and learn from one of the best child photographers in Chicago, Audrey Woulard. It was an amazing experience, to say the least, and I am so excited about the new direction my business is heading. I wanted to create these “secret sessions” as a way to say thank you, while at the same time providing you with a lot of fun and stylish portraits at a special rate.

I feel blessed to be able to do what I truly love to do and to still be able to work from home and be with my children every day and watch them grow up before my very eyes. I just wanted to give back in some way to say thank you.

I will be releasing two more dates along with the information for the “secret locations” in the next few days--so check back here often to see what session works best for you and your children. I’ll see you at the secret location. Until then, check out my new website.


P.S. Secret Location # 2 to be revealed tomorrow!

Katie & David

I arrived at Redlands U of R to photograph a wedding, and I could not have asked for better weather. The day was beautiful, the bride was stunning and the details were put together to a tee by Carmin events. What more could you want? Oh Ya! some yummy cake. Here are a few shots of the day and click here to see a slide show. Thanks David and Katie. Your polka dot cake was yummy...
