I’m participating in a fun blog project with some fellow professional photographers. This month we are all focusing on the word “reflection” and are posting an image that we feel conveys that word.  I hope you enjoy visiting all of the beautiful blogs that are part of this collaboration!

I love this photograph of my son. Just a simple moment where he paused while playing in a puddle to inspect his own reflection. It’s not often that my busy little guys slow down so this is a treasured photograph.


Please take a moment to follow the link to the next participating photographer,  the sweet and oh-so talented Teri Mason.

Ch ch ch changes…

Well, our new baby girl should be here within the next couple of days. We were hoping for a completely natural birth, no meds of any sort and for the baby to decide to come when she wanted. However things don’t always go as planned. I have quite a bit more amniotic fluid then they consider normal and she’s not wanting to stay head down. I’ve had a few ultrasounds and they can’t find any serious reasons why I might have extra fluid and are chalking it up to a “who knows” cause.  She seems happy, healthy and very active (I foresee another busy little girl living in our house soon :). So all is good. But since she loves to flip sideways, breech, halfway head down-all in the course of one day, they are worried about cord prolapse should my water break. And the chance of my water breaking is higher then usual due to the excess fluid. So, I’ve agreed to be induced this Thursday at 8:30 am after we try some things to get her head down. After loosing a baby girl at this exact stage of pregnancy before we had Bella, it’s already hard stay calm. As much as I wanted the natural birth, I want this baby in my arms safe and sound. I’ll be nearly 39 weeks so she’s good good to go.

So, most likely sometime Thursday or early Friday we’ll be holding her! I would love your prayers and thoughts for an easy labor and delivery and healthy little girl.

And just as a heads up, this blog will likely be used a little differently over the next few months. I’ll be taking time off of work and while I’ll still take some sessions, the majority of my time is going to be spent with my kids over the next few months. As much as I adore my clients and adore photographing all the beautiful children I am blessed to meet, I am looking forward to this time with my own children. So the blog may become more of a place for my kid’s photos, my ramblings about our lives and such. I guess that’s where it all started and will be fun to do the same again. Oh and did I mention our house is for sale and we’re in the process of house hunting? I’m sure there will be posts on that too. So lots of changes ahead!

Such a handsome kid!

I had so much fun teaching in Texas and the models were amazing! So cute and so easy to work with-the ladies out there did an incredible job getting them all lined up. My only regret is that we weren’t able to meet all the models due to some storms that blew in. But nonetheless, we had a blast! This is the son of the workshop host and I really wanted to take her boys home with me-they were so cute and so well behaved! More to come as I edit my way through them. 🙂

And the workshop itself was so much fun! We had a perfect group of 11 ladies, the location was awesome, the weather was gorgeous (except for a few hours one night) and the whole trip was so fun. Thank you, thank you to all who attended and to local ladies who made it so easy for us all to get around. I miss you all!

sweet miss Livvie

April 27th, 2010 , Posted in Uncategorized

Livvie is one of Bella’s good friends from church and she was kind enough to model for me while I was teaching last week. She really is one of the sweetest little girls I know and I’m lucky to have had the chance to photograph her since she was just a toddler.  Thank you Livvie!

Another spring evening

April 21st, 2010 , Posted in Uncategorized

I’m getting ready to head out of town to hold a workshop in Ohio, but had to take a break from packing to edit and share these. I love our spring and summer evenings here in Indiana…everything is so beautiful and right now all the flowers are in bloom. Sigh…just too perfect. I sneaked a few shots of Bella before we headed in for bedtime and just loved them.

Gorgeous sisters

April 16th, 2010 , Posted in Uncategorized

I had the opportunity to photograph these gorgeous sisters from Florida while they were in Indiana a couple of weeks ago. We visited their beautiful family farm for their session and I just adore their portraits. It reminded me of the country farm that I grew up on-in fact their mom and I discovered we both owned Arabian horses as teens! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.

So Happy

April 15th, 2010 , Posted in Uncategorized

I’ve had this album in my head for months, but needed an incentive to finish it up. Well, today was the last day for me to take advantage of an album sale and that did it! I love designing as much as I love the art of photography and this album was just too fun to make. I wanted it to scream happiness and whimsy, with bright colors that still held to the vintage feel that all of my design seem to have. I think I pulled it off and am thrilled with the results! And of course I have to share with you all. For you photographers out there, I likely won’t have this in my store before the sale ends tonight, but if you want to purchase the template send me an email and I can send it asap.

*Edited to add, the template is up in the store now. I’m thrilled that so many of you love it!
