Before every single session I shoot, I get nervous. You would think that at this point those nerves would go away…but they are still there. LOL….and it’s a weird mix of feelings that I get, nervous, excitement, fear…and then the usually thoughts run through my mind, “What if we don’t mesh well during the session?”, “OMG, I am so pumped for this session!! I can’t believe it is finally here!!”, “Seriously, what if they hate me? What if my camera stops working?” LOL…seriously, before every single session I feel that way….and then I get out there, and all of those thoughts are all of a sudden nonexistent.

I have been so excited about shooting part 1 of Olivia’s senior session since LAST Christmas when her Mama talked to me about it. When the day finally came it was like Christmas morning! LOL!! I was even more excited when I got out the car and saw that Tracie, Olivia’s mama, had a CART of props for the session! She really stepped out of her comfort zone, and made the cutest props for her daughter’s senior session…that in itself was the best part!

I first met Olivia about 4 years ago when she was a teacher’s assistant at our dance studio. Olivia ended up helping my daughter’s class for the Christmas recital that year, “Suzy Snowflake” was the song they danced to. My daughter was only 5 at the time, and fell in LOVE with “Miss Olivia”. As I was editing Olivia’s photos, my daughter was over my shoulder the entire time…”Those are so pretty!”, “Oh wow, look at Olivia’s earrings!” “Mom, I LOVE that one!” Seriously, I love when my job comes full circle like this. I love that my daughter has emotional to connections to some of my seniors, and I love that she looks up to these girls.

BUT, the best part? When I got an email back from Tracie after I sent off Olivia’s gallery, and she told me that she cried, and just loves these pictures so much. THAT makes me heart smile, I just love being able to give my clients pictures that they will cherish for years to come.

Enjoy some of my favorites from part 1 of Olivia’s session!! Part 2 is taking place in late October!

Cheers to the Class of 2016!

XOXOXO

The best part about being a photographer is wanting to constantly push yourself creatively, to shoot in ways you never thought that you would…OR COULD, and to document life’s most precious moments. When my dear friend, Dana, asked me to shoot her lifestyle newborn session I was so excited. Honestly, excited doesn’t really begin to express how I felt….I was thrilled, over the moon, elated, ECSTATIC!!! What an honor!!! Not only is a Dana a pal of mine, but she is also a photographer, so when another creative in your field asks YOU to shoot a once in their lifetime session, the emotions that you experience are out of this world. They chose me?!?!?! 

I was so fortunate to go out to Dana’s home and spend a few hours with her little family. I was so excited to see her son, Steven, who is just the best big brother ever! Watching him love on little Bailey brought memories back to when I had just had my first daughter, and my son met her for the first time. It was so sweet to witness a precious moment like that…and it was very fulfilling. These are sweet little moments that pass by way to quickly. As a mom our days feel so long…we have a never ending TO DO LIST, our days can be filled with laundry, dishes and meltdowns…and sometimes, we stare at the clock counting down the minutes until bedtime….but it’s those quiet, tiny moments that make all of that crazy so worth it.

I am so honored that I was able to document this session for Dana and her family!

I first met Jessica and Newk about a year ago when I was doing a model call for a session. My daughter’s dance teacher, Katie, told me about her friends. She said they would be PERFECT for my session…and she was RIGHT!!! Jessica and Newk are the most amazing couple. I just love them! While I was shooting their engagement session, (check it out HERE), we clicked. It never felt like I was working during their session, it was just so much fun! I even rode a scary, carnival ferris wheel with them! HA!!!:) Now, that says a lot!!! I wouldn’t do that for just anybody!:)

I was so excited when I got THE email from Jessica. The email when she asked me to shoot their wedding! I was so excited and flattered that I was even considered to be part of their special day! Of course I said “YES”!!! Their wedding was beautiful, Jessica’s dress was INSANELY gorgeous, Newk was so handsome, the wedding party was awesome, the guests were amazing…and most of all, this wedding was filled with so much love. I honestly can’t even tell you how many times I cried! LOL! It was such a beautiful day!

Enjoy a “few” of my favorites from Jessica and Newk’s amazing wedding!

Let me just start off by saying that this was my FIRST maternity session ever! I know….it is crazy! After 3 years in business, I finally photographed a maternity session. If you are wondering why I have never photographed a baby bump before…we are in the same boat! LOL! For the longest time I felt that it was my “calling” to only photography teens and seniors. I thought I needed to specialize in a certain area and only photograph those specific subjects. Well…I was wrong…and I have been definitely missing out! I LOVED shooting this maternity session. It was new and different, and I LOVE that Dana gave me creative freedom. She told me to, “Do what you do.” That in itself was AMAZING!

I am beyond excited for this adorable little family! Not only is Dana a fellow photographer in my area, but she has become a dear friend of mine. I just love her to and her family to pieces! I can’t wait to meet Baby Z in July!! And to add to the excitement, they are waiting until the birth to find out the gender of the baby! Seriously, I LOVE it!!! I am counting down the days until I am able to photograph this family as FAMILY of 4!!!
