I'd like to introduce you!

My friend Ginger and her husband are about the coolest couple I know... they are wonderful and funny and real.

Steve is a very accomplished nature photographer and I've seen his work. You can see his work too at this blog address: Their very first image up is an adorable bear playing with his toes! Please turn on the follow button on their blog and check out their work. You'll be able to own your very own print by this terrific artist very soon!

I'm excited for these guys and I'm happy to introduce their work to you!

He was on R&R!

So I've photographed this lovely family before and I just think they are so sweet! Her wonderful husband was on R&R and so of course she knew that she had to take advantage of my Christmas in July and August program. We were so blessed to have such a beautiful day in the midst of so many soggy days. We had such a great time at Cottonwood park (my most favorite place to go... so many options there!) and the mosquitos were actually not too bad!

Now this flag shot was for sure a request. She really wanted something that went along the lines of what we'd done in the studio. Of course we had to totally wait for the wind to co-operate LOL... and that was actually several minutes. Just as we were about to give up and come back to it, the wind decided to be helpful again.

I adore this shot... Especially with the glow action applied below!

I love this jump for joy! Thanks so much for letting me photograph your family for you! It was a privilege to do so. You have a terrific family!

My Cat Giselle

This is Giselle Lisette. She was 17 when we had to put her to sleep. This was the hardest day of my life, as she was a very special kitty and member of our family. She will be remembered forever in our hearts. I know she is at the Rainbow Bridge waiting for us there, and I will be with her again someday.

Please hug your kitty or puppy for me and my Giselle. Treasure every moment you have with your furbabies for you never know when their time has come. I am blessed to have had her in my life for 17 years, and grateful that I had the strength to let her go when it was her time. It was only through prayer that I was able to do that, and so thank you to all who participated in that activity when we needed it the most. God Bless!

Maternity portraits!

Maternities are SO FUN! These new moms have that beautiful belly full of dreams and promises and joy... and future sleepless nights!

This lovely lady came over to have her portraits done, and she's so excited! She brought with her this beautiful baby bag made from her husband's uniforms... I LOVED it. So fun! Her mom made her a bunch of stuff and so we totally had to include it all into her beautiful portraits.

Miss D, I hope you love your images so far. They are beautiful!

Engagement session!

So this super cute couple is getting married in late September, in actually this exact spot, so their backgrounds will be all gold foliage, and it'll be beautiful! Please forgive me that I've been playing with your images... I recently bought a TON of actions and couldn't help myself LOL. I hope you love these and I'm so looking forward to photographing your wedding.

class of 2010

I have known this terrific family for a couple of years and I think they are the BEES' KNEES! This young lady is graduating this coming December and has a lot going for her!

I really enjoyed photographing you this evening; you did a great job especially braving the coooooooooold water in the creek. I hope you love your sneak peek and I will talk to you soon!
