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.

Enjoy.

And in order of greatness!
logo6 Big Sister DeeDee is so sweet. Always ready with hugs.

logo7 Big Brother...this kid is one smart cookie! Came in 8th in his entire class of 300+ students. And I just love this picture of him. He's so super cool don't you think?

logo9 Need a laugh? Look no further to middle brother.


logo3 Baby Sister...what can I saw about her? Another great kid. Youngest in the pack.

logo5 I added this picture, because I love the spontaneity of it.

Not to be outdone by their kids....
It took us several takes and changes of scenary to get this shot. Mom had saw some other photos that I had done in a similiar way...but of course all pictures are different, even if it is a similiar set up.

Getting into position.

eyelets: me and tennis shoes

14 January 2011
You may not know this about me, but I have kind of large feet. They didn't start off large. In fact, before I started having children, they were average sized. Normal. But four children later...and one size bigger (ugh). For the most part, that doesn't bother me. You know, whatever, its fine. Feet [are typically] a good thing to have no matter what size they are.



But recently, I have been having problems with my feet. It could be a combination of a few things...age, wear and tear, but I have come to the conclusion that I need to sometimes wear tennis shoes (with some kind of arch support) as opposed to flat shoes, like flip flops every day. In the summer time, this is near impossible. I live in flip flops and sandles; its too hot to do anything else. But for the rest of the year, at least part of the time, tennis shoes need to grace these feet.



BUT,



Remember, I have big feet. So to me, looking down to see my size xx encased in white leather is just not appealing. The other problem? The colors of tennis. While I don't want all white shoes, I don't want all black ones either. So I could get a combination of colors, but the color combinations for the shoes I am going to get are like white and neon green, or gray and hot pink (sigh)...



Haha! But its inevitable. So I will be purchasing, this weekend, a pair of Reebok Easy Tone.





I'm probably not getting this pair...because they are all white and all white with size xx = no good. But, they are pretty comfortable and wearing them around the store my mind was screaming, "Look at my big feet!" but my feet were saying, "aaaahhhhh, so nice."

That is until Summer hits...

or I need to wear a super cute outfit....

whichever comes first :)

Ciao!

I was looking at my handy dandy Oriental Trading Company Calendar, it was free with an order! It has all these little details and holidays and "special" days on it. So tomorrow is "Make Your Dreams Come True" day. Interesting.

So I thought to myself, what can I do today to make my dreams come true tomorrow?

Well, I don't know about tomorrow, well, why not tomorrow?:)

So today, I had a fabulous brand analysis session with The Joy of Marketing. It was very helpful to me. Starting out on my second year, I want to make sure I am stearing a clear course for my business that I am building and the brand I am trying to sear into the minds of those who meet me and photograph with me. So, there may be some changes coming. Good changes- change doesn't always have to be bad right?

I would recommend having an analysis done. Either by The Joy Of Marketing http://www.blogger.com/www.joyofmarketing.com or with another company that understands branding and marketing.

So that's what I did today, for tomorrow. But tomorrow is the actual Make Your Dreams Come True day. Hmmmm, I guess I will have to do some thinking tonight when I have dinner with my college roommate while she is in town :)

But for now, I would love to hear what you plan on doing to make your dreams come true this year....

My second time photographing this little cutie girl. If you remember, I photographed her first birthday party. This session, was just for her as well.

logo1 The set up was minimal, as the photos were of Harmoni and not my set up. Besides, it was neat to see what she would do with the elements and how she used them for the session. I know...she's just one years old, but this little actress is going places and I am happy to be on board from the beginning.

logo2 Harmoni has got so much personality. Her mother wanted me take a series of photographs that might go in a modeling and acting portfolio.

Below is an example of what a "stand out" photograph is. Basically, it is a contemporary means of displaying your portraits without a frame.
