sugar & spice

This little precious girl is on a baby plan, which means I get to visit with her every three months...aren't I lucky? When I left her creative mother was already planning our Valentines shoot...

I worked closely with her Mom designing this card! Can I just say that I love it!

for Grandma...

What a cute family! This time around they included their cousin in all the fun! We really had a great afternoon - even considering the scolding I got for not reserving the location? Who knew?

Happy Birthday!

Can ya believe this little fellow is now one? It seems like just yesterday that I was taking his 3 month old pictures. He's such a cutie! The last picture is one of my all time favorites! He was sitting on a table & found a hole...which he promptly stuck his hand into.

What an amazing family! This was Dalton's 9th birthday & his super-special Mom arranged for a horse at his party! Oh, she also arranged for me to be there...

Dalton's Mom had all this planned to be a gift for his Dad. She wanted pictures depicting all his favorite activities so I came back another day & took pictures of Dalton fishing. I also go some of his beautiful older sister.

This is another one of the families that I get to see regularly! This time though was a little tougher than others...the baby wasn't feeling too hot the first time we got together - although I did have fun with his big brother & sister! Fortunately, he was feeling better the 2nd time we got together - even though it was sooo cold that day...too cold for a little boy born & bred in the South... Still I think we managed to get some precious shots! I love the last one!

3 girls & a boy

I'm slowly starting to catch up! Sorta... These cutie pies had thier pictures taken for their family's Chrsitmas card. What started out as a group session quickly became that & much more! These kids are so beautiful and good natured! Their card turned out really cute too!

* I'm going to try really hard to post the rest of 2008's images before the end of the year...the operative word there was try...

Party Time!

It's hard to believe that this 1st little guy was celebrating his 1st birthday! What a great year! And what a great idea his Mom had...killing 2 birds with one stone or should I say 2 birthday's with 1 party! Smart move!

Paula & Chad

These two crazy love birds came to me AFTER their sweet wedding in Tennessee. Good friends of one of our favorite babysitters - they drove here from Chattanooga for a fun filled afternoon of photos...right Chad?!? Let's just say that Chad obviously loves Paula a lot and did this solely for her! They are a sweet couple, very much in l0ve & I wish them nothing but the best! Thanks you two!

baby brother

The hardest part of keeping this blog is writing these witty blurbs...alright, for those of you don't know me personally, I like to think of myself as witty... anyway back to the difficult part of this blog... it's hard to write this stuff! I want to be creative, unique & of course witty with each post I write, but each time I feel as if I'm just repeating myself "precious kids", "wonderful client", "beautiful baby", "great parents", not sounding genuine or sincere... but the truth of the matter is this...I feel that way about all my clients! I honestly think they are all beautiful, have great parents, and have been wonderful clients! These three children were no different! As has happened in the past - I feel like I walked away from their session with two new friends in their parents!

**also, this little boy has one of the coolest names I've heard!

Savannah at 9mo

I can't believe how lucky I am that I get to document Sweet Savannah's 1st year! Here she is for her 9 month pictures! I'm a tad behind in my blogging because it's nearly time for her 1 year old pictures! She's grown so fast! I love the last picture, it gives you a good idea of what goes on behind (or in front) of the scene...

**A reminder that if you want portraits taken for Christmas gifts you need to go ahead & schedule now, I am booking up quickly!

BreAnne's Bridals

Sweet BreAnne asked me to take her bridal portraits since she was having a destination wedding. We had so much fun! It also doesn't hurt that she is ab-so-lutely beautiful & easy to photograph!! I especially love the last picture. Her new husband works for UPS and her mother was quick enough to grab the attention of the driver of this UPS truck who obliged us for a few minutes.

6 days!

This precious baby is No. 4 in a family of four - and her mom called me to capture this precious stage. It's never too early to call me to get these once in a lifetime shots. Newborns do not stay this way for long!
