Holiday Cards!!!

It's that time again! I'm not sure where the year went. Our year has been filled with lots of transitions and preparations as we get ready to welcome a new little one into our family. We have spent lots of time completing paperwork and have been on a waiting list now for 7 months! We can't wait to see a picture of his sweet little face.

In the meantime...it's time to order your Holiday Card! If you have had a session with us this year we can work together to design a perfect Christmas card! If you would like to do a card but we haven't had our session yet, I would love to work with you to accomplish that!

If I have enough interest I will schedule a day of mini sessions! Just contact me and we'll discuss the details.

The first two sets our the new 2010 designs for Darling by Design...and the last two sets are previous years designs that are still available.

Pick out your favorite and give me a call or send me an email darlingbydesign(at)gmail.com.

Paducah Senior

Several weeks back we had the privilege of capturing senior pictures for one of our students at our church. We have watched this group of kiddos grow up since they were in eighth grade and it seems crazy to think that they will be graduating this year. It has been so fun to watch them mature and become adults that have big dreams and aspirations!

We are confident they will all succeed and feel honored to get to watch along the way!

We captured a variety of images and I couldn't be more pleased with the gallery. It was painstaking for me to try to narrow the gallery down that I presented to his mom and dad!

Urban Family Session

You might recognize this family because they grace the front page of my website! They scheduled to update their yearly family portraits and to have a little fun together. We actually enjoyed one of the FEW cool days we have had this year so far. I'm running behind in posting sessions and they have already seen their full gallery!

However, I try to make sure each family gets a little BLOG LOVE.

These are some favorite family images!

I OFTEN get lots of questions about choosing clothing for your session and this family is a GREAT example of coordinating their clothing to fit the personalities and the look they want for their session.


Couldn't you just eat them both up?!?!

He looks pretty handsome!

One last family image! These kids were awesome! I hope for one family image in a session but they just kept workin' it for my camera! We had a great night!

Fall Family Portraits

I'm afraid the little bit we may see of fall is here! The leaves are changing so quickly and I don't think it will last very long! We have really enjoyed getting to know this family over the last several years...I photographed their oldest since she was a year old! This time we decided to meet early in the morning and I brought my secret weapon....my husband. This precious one immediately warmed up and they went on all kinds of adventures during our session. He spoke her language I guess and we captured some great images!

The light was just gorgeous as it came up through the trees!

A beautiful family portrait!

This sweet one just turned ONE! It is such a fun age....she was a little timid at first, but warmed up pretty quickly!

She had a big birthday party later in the day and we had to grab a few pictures in her owl dress. LOVE IT!

I LOVE these of mom and dad! Gorgeous light and colors...and a great couple!

The Newest Big Brother!

I'm so behind on posting images but I wanted to make sure that I get this posted today. This is a big day for this family and I want to give the "BIG" brother a little love! Today is the day that he will become a big brother! We met up last week to capture some images of him being TWO! That's a pretty big deal for such a little guy. I haven't seen him since last year when he was SOOO smiley. I had high expectations for me and he didn't disappoint! Now, he is two and is active and on the go but he gave us some great laughs.

As I mentioned I believe that he became a big brother today to a little sister. I wanted to make sure to get this post up for him today. I'm sure he will embrace his role fully after a few days of adjustment to sharing mom and dad! :)

We decided to walk around downtown this year and it was perfect for a curious little guy!

A session wouldn't be complete without playing the tickle game....and he loved getting to tickle ME!

I love those big blue eyes he has.....captivated and full of life!

We made sure to capture one last picture of the family of three....and I love that...treasuring their last few days of just the three of them! However, now it's already time to update the family portrait! :)

This next part is true lifestyle photography. Often I will play a little music to capture a child's attention. This little guy took it to the next level. He grabbed a stick and started to preform for us! I was dying laughing!
Dancing along the sidewalk no less!

Priceless memories that will make you smile for years to come! I love the little things about kids and watching the way their personalities work! This is the best job ever!

Thanks again!

Beautiful Twin Girls {Paducah Baby Photographer}

These two precious girls were so much fun to photograph! I couldn't believe how easy they both were. We got so many smiles, eye contact, and they are even pushing up so well! They each snoozed a little while their sister was modeling but in the end the day turned out beautifully!

We have been praying for these little ones for months....their family is precious to us and apart of our church family! Mom was on bed rest for several months but it did the trick because they held on until the very end!

At the very end they even gave a picture together!

Little Bella did so awesome.....

I can't resist little feet.

I love this image of mama and her little one!

By this time, Bella was ready for a nap, but Parker was ready with her smiles!

She was a little ham especially with her momma!

Look at those beautiful blue eyes!

Parker's little feet this time!

It might be double the work but I like to think it's just double the FUN! I can't wait to see what awaits us at their 6 month pictures!
