Lifetime of Love

This sweet couple attends our church but before our session I can't say I knew them very well. When Mrs. S contacted me she told me that she tries to have a portrait done every 5 years and they were a bit overdue. I was so honored and excited to spend part of our afternoon photographing them but to also hear how they have made their love for one another a priority. They found each other later in life and have been married more than 25 years. They both look so delighted to be together and it was obvious throughout their session. They watched a previous session we had done with small children and requested the monkey impression from Mike. Mike indulged them and we had a good laugh.

Thank you for the privilege of spending time with you. I dream of having the marriage and relationship you do when we have been married as long as you have.

I just love hands...

At the end we did a few of each of them seperately...Mr. S. even got in on acting like a monkey to help us get smiles. I WISH I would have gotten pictures of that! :)

Don't they both just glow?

I encourage everyone to have portraits done so that you can "remember" and "mark" times throughout your marriage!

4 days old

This precious little girl was only 4 days old. She did an awesome job letting us move her around and curled up just like we wanted her to. Having newborn images within the first 7-10 days is ideal as they are much more likely to sleep and allow us to get the images you desire. As you can see she woke up towards the end but was very content to just sit and look at me.

Wow, I can't get over what a great year this has been. I feel so honored to have the best customers to photograph. The last month has been hectic to say the least and my blogging has GREATLY suffered. The good news about that is I have plenty of sessions that still need to be blogged over the course of the next few weeks while it is FRIGID outside.

This sweet little angel has seen my camera several times in her short life and I look forward to many more times. This was her six month session and we included some Christmas images as well.

She is just precious and has a sweet mom and dad that I consider friends. It was a pleasure to spent some of our Saturday together.

I plan to take this week off to enjoy time enjoying the holiday with friends and family. I will be checking emails but responses may be slower than usual.

I have several more posts scheduled over the next few days for your viewing pleasure.

Still Here

I'm still here! :) Christmas has me running like crazy to get galleries posted, orders sent in, prints packaged, and phone calls made so everyone gets their Christmas cards and presents in time. I have many sessions that I've yet to blog and hope to start doing that soon.

I can't post without a attaching an image so I'm letting this little cutie say hello to the blog world for me!

Look for more posts soon!
