Today’s sweetest moment

Oi.  She is growing up so fast.  Watching my sweet little baby coloring, focusing, holding the crayon perfectly in her tiny little fingers, was my sweetest moment of the day.  It tickles my heart with pride and makes me look forward to our daily “after nap” coloring sessions.  Everyday after her nap she goes over to the crayon box and yells “bluuuuuuueeeeee”….meaning she’d like to color.  And in fact, she typically only wants the blue crayon.  I want to remember these sweet innocent everyday moments that are flying by in the mist of work, bills, cleaning, worring, living….

Tiffany Mullins - Beautiful. I love your work. I need to have you come up here and do a mullins family shoot.

Life’s sweetest moments…

I’m starting a new feature on this blog that is going to feature pictures that captures some of my life’s sweetest moments.  I see beauty in some of the everyday things that we do and I want to remember all of them.  I saw this great quote the other day and I think it explains why photography is so important to me.  “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” ~Aaron Siskind

I want to remember the little things, these everyday sweet moments that make me smile.  If you want one of your sweetest moments captured and featured on the blog, send me a message, I’d love to hear from you.  For now, enjoy this pic of my sweet Haylee and she runs through the sprinklers, laughing and squealing on this hot August day.

Baby Johnny

Baby Johnny was such a good little guy during our session….he was a little bit older than most of the newborns I shoot but it worked out really well because he was alert for most of the photo shoot and then at the very end he slept for us for just a little bit.  The V family was so sweet and fun to work with.  As you can tell in these pics, baby Johnny has really bonded with his mommy and daddy and the look in his eye when he was looking at his mom was so beautiful.  Lauren & Johnny, I hope you guys enjoy these pics forever and ever!

Also, I wanted to show you blog readers, that I am now including these wall display ideas.  If you give me a picture of the room you are wanting to display your art, I can come up with a collage of photos that would look great or I can use these generic rooms as shown below to help you visualize how this art will be displayed.

I give discounts on print packages if you purchase a whole room collection as shown below.  For example, this collection is (2) 10×20″ and (3) 10×10 printed on the highest quality fine art paper and matted for durability.  If purchased a la carte would be $245, but I offer a 20% discount making this collection only $199.
