moving day...

I am happy to announce the move to a new web site. My new place is at:


I have been planning this move for sometime. I purchased my domain name months ago but for some reason, I have been dragging my feet to set up a web site. I really did not want to maintain a web page and a separate blog. Than I came across a program that does both! Yep, a blog and web page in one - brilliant!!!!

Hope you like my new digs. Still getting used to the new format but so far the view is great.

ms. lauryn - part two...

Finally I am getting to this post!

This was one of the funniest session I have done so far. I shot a 1st birthday party. The theme was lady bugs and mom Sara went all out. I could have spend a good hour photographing all the lady bugs she put up in their home. It was a marvelous sight to see trust me!

One of the best parts is that I got to be in the front row while Ms. Lauryn ate her first cup cake. I guess it pays to have a camera strapped around your neck. I loved her funny faces and the way she tested out the frosting. The cupcakes were a work of art I tell you. All most to pretty to eat - almost. I was lucky enough to take a plate full home and we ate them all.

Sara and her family were very welcoming. I followed people while they ate. Watched kids while they made pillow forts and jumped off beds. Sat back and witnessed a family coming together and celebrating a milestone.

Thank you to the Wood's for making me feel like part of the family that day, I am forever grateful for the experience you gave me.

ms. lauryn - part one...

I am a lucky, lucky girl!

I love the fact that I am able to hang out with wonderful people and I get to capture amazing moments with my camera. There is nothing else in this world that I would rather be doing (if I could cuddle with me kids at the same time I think I would be in heaven).

Lauryn's mom asked me to document her 1st birthday party - how cool is that??? She also wanted to get a few shots of her a few days before the party. We meet one night at a park and had fun playing peek-a-boo.

Both Lauryn and her mom are super adorable. Life and happiness just radiate off of these two. If I was stuck on an island with them, I think they would keep me calm. Plus, I bet their positive attitude would rub off on me.

Here are a few from that session, I will post the "birthday party" session soon.

Those eyes; they melt me.

My favorite picture - I love the made in the usa!

a new adventure...

Tomorrow I have a session like no other. I have been getting ready for this one for over a month. I don't want to give to many details, just wanted to give you something to think about. I hope to post more about it in the next few days.

Wish me luck!

This couple makes parenthood look easy. They are laid back, comfortable and seem to have a handle on how thier baby ticks. I don't think I was this easy going when my first was 6 months old - way to go guys!

Another wonderful day in the great North West. We headed down by the water for Sydney's 6 month session. I was excitecd to see mom and baby in vivid colors. Bright colors really pop in photographs. The park was not to busy and the grass was cool on our toes.

I've said it before; I really like this family. Open to ideas. Full of life. Ready for anything. Thanks for making my "job" easy.
