I was so excited when Marcia asked me to photograph Bennett. She told me that they were starting to re-decorate his room and were going with a train theme. We decided to head downtown to the railroad museum to get some photos of Bennett with the trains for his room. What a well mannered, handsome, agreeable little man. He did SUCH A GREAT job with his photo shoot and took direction really well. He made my job very easy! I got some cute shots of him and think they will have plenty to choose from for his room. I’ve just started editing the photos but wanted to share a few with Marcia…so here you go sweet friend! Your little train loving two year old man!

And you can see a few more on my facebook page!

Micah turned four at the beginning of April, right after we moved into our new home. I talked about doing this photo shoot many times…but yesterday we made it happen (only 2.5 months late). I took Micah to the Railroad Museum in downtown Jackson. This kids loves baseball, trains, and cars. So I figured that would be the perfect location. It was really fun because of all the times I’ve taken clients here for sessions the train cars have never been open. Yesterday the trains were open and Micah and I got to explore a little bit. We also got to in the museum and he saw the model train/city that they have set up in there too. He was in heaven. To top it all off after we got his shirt changed for some “baseball” photos and headed over to the park a REAL train came right by the museum. He didn’t how loud the horn was but he thought it was pretty cool to see a real train go by…the conductor waved at him too! We took a few more photos and then headed home. He was a trouper in the hot weather and did an excellent job of posing for me and letting me get some shots of him as he is!

Micah, you are an amazing little man. Your heart for others is so amazing. I love how you look out for your sisters and are so kind. You sure can be a little stinker at times too and like to whine instead of using appropriate words but I’m hoping that’ll go away! I love your passion for whatever you are working on and how much you love baseball. You are truly an amazing child and we are so blessed to have you in our lives. I cannot imagine a day going by without you to snuggle with, talk to and learn from. I love you Micah! Thanks for being a great sport and letting me take your four year old portraits yesterday. I cannot believe you’re already four!! Love, mom!

Here are a few of my favorites from his session. You can see the rest on facebook!

I haven’t entered a challenge at i heart faces for a long time…but I felt like I had a great photo that I wanted to share during the “all boy” challenge. I was able to photograph Matt while he and his family were on their way to Indiana for vacation. They drove from Texas and stayed with us in Tennessee (my longest traveled photo shoot) before heading to Indiana. This photo shoot was a lot of fun and we had a great time checking out new spots around my little downtown. Here’s one of my favorites from his session. More from Matt’s session can be seen here.

Go to i heart faces to see more “all boy” photos!

I was so excited when Marcia called me last week to tell me about Sara Grace’s ballet recital, and to ask if I’d be available to photograph the little “dancing rainbow” before her recital. I was bummed though because we weren’t going to be able to attend. Marcia, her mother, and Sara Grace came over for a few minutes before heading to the civic center and I was able to grab a few quick photos. This little girl LOVES ballet and she is very photogenic so it made my job VERY easy! Thanks Marcia for trusting me with capturing these memories for you! I hope you are pleased with the end result!!

Well hello there! It’s been over a month since I’ve been around here. While life doesn’t slow down for anyone, I’ve done more than normal in the last month, including move, travel and continue to grow the little person inside! We’ve been blessed and love our new home, had a great visit with family and friends and I’m in my second trimester and feeling great!

While we were on vacation I had the priviledge of photographing my cousins two sweet little girls. These little ladies kept me on my toes and as Heather said, I’m glad I wore my tennis shoes! Danika is one month older than my oldest daughter and it was really fun to interact with her. Allie is a little spitfire and there’s never a dull moment around her, when I was with her I think I got a glimpse of what my little Hannah will be like when she gets older. We had a great time checking out rocks, running through the forest and jumping off benches (don’t worry I left the jumping up to the girls). No tears were shed, but lots of laughs were had and I think I captured some of Allie’s silly faces and Danika’s sweet smiles.

Heather, thank you for trusting me with capturing this precious time in the life of your girls. They were so much fun to run around with and it will be an afternoon I won’t forget! I hope you are pleased with the images I was able to capture!! I had fun working with a few different types of edits so I hope you like the effect I chose for each image. Here’s a sampling of what I captured!
