Ella was such a joy to photograph! Her grandma contacted me hoping to set up a last-minute shoot and I’m so thankful I was available 🙂 My favorite shot from her session was this pose, named “Huck Finn” in photography circles, and she rocked it! I love classic poses, but I’m always up for something new if Baby is up to it. I’m hoping to make more time for blogging in this busy season! Look for a newsletter with tips for displaying your photos at home, too!
I’ve been on “break” for the first half of summer, but I have been busier than ever! Over the past 6 weeks I’ve viewed hours of post processing videos that I purchased from the talented mother of 11 (!) Lisa Holloway, submitted photos to various contests including Voice, updated my website/storefront, and finally started editing pictures from my Project365. Whew! August is typically my busiest month for newborns, and sure enough I have a few mamas on the books; I can’t wait to share highlights from their upcoming sessions!
In the meantime, here are some images I have submitted for Voice. The categories change slightly every year, and my favorites for this year are “movement”, “decisive moment”, “joy”, and “environments”:)
This field was perfect for shooting some pics of my babies to update our personal photos! Last year there were a bit more red blooms but I love the purple on this favorite shot of my youngest =D
This sweet girl is 10 months and walking like a pro! I enjoyed this shoot from last month at my favorite location 🙂 The focus was on the little one, but I warmed her up to the camera by taking some family shots and snapped a few mom/daughter and dad/daughter shots. Here are a few favorites – enjoy!
This was such a fun shoot! This sweet boy was born on mom’s late grandmother’s birthday, and she was a huge Cubs fan 🙂 We got to incorporate some Cubs shots, which were so meaningful to mom, especially since the Cubs won the World Series last Fall while Eli was growing in his mama’s belly!
