My excitement and love for photography grows with every person I meet...every photo I take.

It brings me joy to capture your emotions, your laughter, and your moment with every frame.

Its your story. You are unique.

Let me be your visual record keeper.

an eyefull of families this weekend!

29 November 2009
I just love both of these women and their families. These two mothers have been good friends to me and I have been so blessed to have met them and knwo them.

I met Shauna through a friend of mine who knew her cousin and thought that we should meet because Shauna and her family were relocating to Maricopa. What a wonderful blessing she has been and I am so happy to know her husband and her sons. Just a really neat family. They love God, they love each other, and they love others.

I met Myriam through COC Moms women's group. She is so sweet. She has such a wonderful spirit. I had the chance to meet her wonderful husband and her three children today.

WHEW! We had to relocate at the last minute because of a dust storm and they took it all in stride. We were able to snap off some beautiful pictures of the family with one of Maricopa's parks as a backdrop. I can't wait to get to know them even better in the future.

Catch an eyefull of this little guy! So cute. I was very happy to meet baby, his siblings, his mother, and his grandmother. He almost makes me want to have another one...almost :)

one of my favorites. I love the hands all over this little one...

get an eyefull of George....

George is one of the first people we met when we started attending COC in Maricopa. He is warm, friendly, open, and he loves God...therefore, he loves people! How fun it was to do this session with him. I asked him to bring a fedora with him. He said, "I don't think I have one, but I will look..." He found one! And doesn't he look great?!

This family is one of my favorites here in Maricopa. They are so sweet, so supportive. Mom used to baby sit my #3 and I wouldn't have anyone else do it other than her.

I am so thankful to have families like this one in my life!

The Only limitations is our imagination. With good light and a decent background, photographs can be taken just about anywhere! Let's imagine together and make it happen!

an eyefull of A Natural Beauty

12 November 2009

I met this nugget and her mother at play group several months ago. I have wanted to get her in front of my lens ever since i met her. She is so sweet. Her parents said that they always have a hard time getting her to cooperate for photos. Well, she made me work for them today for sure! But that's okay. Sometimes the beauty is in the natural look...

Another photo with just Mom. She just looks so classic in this shot. I wished I had some gloves and a small train case for her. I told her she belonged in a different era in these shots. So pretty.

an eyefull of All Boy!

Oh goodness did I get to photograph Jack on his first birthday! I was able to meet Jack, his parents, his maternal grandparents, his paternal grandparents and even his paternal great grandmother! What a blessing for this guy to have all of these warm and wonderful people around him to celebrate his first year!

Happy Birthday Jack!

More Texturizing!

03 November 2009
A new internet friend, Stacy Dewitt of The Love Shack blog
saw my picture of the girls and edited it for me. She wrote, "Hi!

I just loved your photo. It was already beautiful. I just edited it for fun to see if I could enhance the colors without changing the integrity of the photo. I hope you don't mind. I am always trying to learn new techniques. I used Florabella milk chocolate overlay in soft light.
It's attached.

With love,

I love her edit! I just figured out, today, how to use textures (hence my post New Textures!) and I hope to get better and better and using these on my photos to enhance them!

Original, with just a few actions run on it.

Hers is so much better! Thanks Stacy!

New Textures!

Thanks to Flikr I just discovered how to use textures on pictures and now I want to texturize everything!

This is the original.

I wanted to retexturize {serious girl} to see how they would work on faces. I don't think they came out half bad.

This is the original.

Here is a picture of my friends twins sitting on the beach. I didn't take this picture, but added a little something to it to give it some pop.

The original.

Looking forward...

02 November 2009
I am looking forward to the holiday season. But, in all reality, I am actually surprised it is already here! Didn't I just take down Christmas lights last week?!

I will be busy for a few weeks, busy for me, is having scheduled, on the books, sessions (YAY!). Almost every weekend up until a week or so before Christmas, I will have a session, for that I am most thankful.

This next year, I hope to buy a new camera (yay!) because, of course I have one in mind (Canon 5D probably) and I want to update this website to a real photography site with all the pertinent information you will need. I pray that next year, this little business finds its niche here in Maricopa and that I continue to meet wonderful people and produce beautiful photos.
