I heart faces – focusing on angles

March 22nd, 2010 , Posted in Uncategorized

The photo challenge over at  i ♥ faces this week is angles and I love the angle  on this photo. I shot it from this angle so I could show her holding the puppy she was carrying around that day. I also wanted to get good light in her eyes in spite of her wearing the hat so I just had her look up at me.

Nursery Ideas

March 22nd, 2010 , Posted in Uncategorized

I was just playing with some ideas for the new baby’s nursery and wanted to share. I’m not sure I’ll go with this one, but it was fun to play and quite a few of Bella’s baby things were celery green and soft pink so I can re-use a lot. But knowing me, I’ll come up with more themes and ideas before she arrives and will have a hard time choosing my favorite.

I love this family…they are such a cute couple with the cutest little baby and a sweet, goofy Labradoodle.  I’ve worked with them twice over the last year and always have a great time when we meet for a session. I’m looking forward to seeing how much their little guy has grown at his one year session.






I was reminded…

I was reminded by a friend in California that I had not yet posted all my Florida images. 😉 With another trip to this beautiful part of Florida just around the corner, I figured I better get these up before I post new ones.








More to come…

What a blast we had with Miss Laila!  I don’t get too many redheads to photograph except my own Garrett so of course I was happy when we met. And did she ever know how to pose it up…I would turn around for a second and when I looked back, there she was all ready to go with another picture perfect pose. What a fun shoot!

This little guy was just too cute to handle. He told me he wants to be a professional model when he grows up and as good looking as he is, I think he has a great shot at it!



Our new baby, workshops and 2010 portrait schedule

March 15th, 2010 , Posted in Uncategorized

As I mentioned on the blog earlier, we are thrilled to welcoming another sweet little baby girl to our family this summer. Our newest Profancik member is due August 1 and the anticipation is building! Of course having a new baby will change my work schedule for a while and I wanted to make some announcements about my upcoming schedule so my portrait clients and workshop attendees can plan ahead.

I’ll be taking very limited portrait commissions until July 16th and then will on maternity leave until sometime in September. Watch the blog for info on when I’ll be available after the birth of our little girl.

I am conducting 2 more workshops for the 2010 year and then I’ll be taking some extended time away from teaching. I don’t plan on holding another workshop until at LEAST the fall of 2011 so if you wanted to attend a MiaBella workshop this is your last chance for quite a while. I’m holding a two day MiaBella workshop in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area on May 3-4 and only have 3 seats left for this one. I’m also holding another two day workshop in Dayton, Ohio on April 23-24. Please visit my workshop site at for more info and to register.

I had an incredible time last month in San Luis Obispo teaching a workshop in conjunction with Joy Vertz . We had a lovely group of women attend and I enjoyed getting to know each and every one of them. It’s amazing how so there were so many different backgrounds, even different goals and dreams to pursue in photography…and each person walked away refreshed and renewed in their vision. We were thrilled with the outcome of the workshop and hope to hold more in the future.

Here are some images from my last workshop (more to come!).




pretty please?

Queen Anne’s Lace season is here – indianapolis and greenfield photographer

August 13th, 2009 , Posted in Uncategorized

I love Queen Anne’s Lace and it’s nearing it’s peak here in Indiana. It’s such a sweet, simple yet beautiful flower and I love photographing little girls in it. We have a couple more weeks before blooms fade with the end of summer, so if you would like a shoot in Queen Anne’s Lace for your daughter contact me right away. I still have a few opening in the next 2 weeks.
