Last year I had a sweet little newborn on my hands for the holidays. My sweet friend Katherine sent me an adorable santa hat, diaper cover and booties for Hannah…and I took photos of Hannah in the cute little ensemble…but I don’t think I ever shared those photos. for shame. So to make up for not sharing these photos for a year I’m going to share an obscene amount of photos of sweet little santa Hannah. Because it’s my website and I can if I want to. Because I couldn’t choose just a few. And because she’s just that cute.


I had to share this because this is still the face she makes when she gets really upset. It’s funny how some things never change.
Who’s going to break it to Hannah that girls can’t win the Heisman? I guess you gotta have goals right?
Shocked? Surprised? Cold?
and the hat falls down again…
Thanks again Katherine! I hope you have a cute little Santa hat for some pics with Frankie…if you want to borrow mine just let me know :)

I love to see a good photography “timeline” if you will. The same spot, the same outfit, different time. Pregnancy progression photos are awesome…although I don’t have any good ones of my own pregnancies. If I am blessed with another baby, I will make sure to take good pregnancy “timeline” photos. I am not exactly sure where the calendar baby idea came from but I did this with Micah…so I saw the idea sometime before April 2008 and back then I didn’t have a good way to catalog my ideas like I do now. Are you on Pinterest? If not you better start!! It’s totally addicting and totally helpful. I love being able to go back to the original source for something and give proper credit…before pinterst I had a hard time keeping track of ideas. So…head on over and check out pinterst and follow along with me if you’d like.

Back to the story at hand. I’m not sure where the idea came from but I’m so glad that I did it and have stuck with it each month. It’s so fun to see how my baby has grown and progressed and how I can easily spot the months she “bulked up” or started slimming down or got more hair or wouldn’t lay still… Some of these photos have been harder to capture than others but I always get at least one salvageable image! Here is Hannah’s calendar “timeline” up to this point!

I am thrilled to be able to show you today a great product from a great company. KISS Wedding Books makes gorgeous albums and I want to show you why. I have tried a few different wedding album vendors and have decided that KISS Albums are the way to go for my amazing clients. These wedding albums start and end with two page spreads…no more weird first and last pages that you’re not exactly sure what to do with. There is no gutter in these albums so the 12×12 albums are actually 12×24 layouts, which means lots of photographic territory for your wedding memories. The leather on these albums is incredible. It’s like they put a comfy leather couch on your wedding album. Thus making you want to sink into a comfy chair, pull out your wedding album time and time again to relive the most important day of your life. These awesome albums also come inside a “swank” cloth dust-cover. I cannot wait to help you capture the memories from your wedding day and preserve them for you in this incredible album from KISS Wedding Books.

Here are some photos of the album that I designed for the amazing Karla and Jason. I really do love designing albums and cannot wait to help you pick the photographs that you want showcased in your wedding album. Don’t worry if you’re already married, we can work on an album for your coffee table too! Give me a call and book your session so we can make a gorgeous book for your gorgeous coffee table (because trust me, this is not an album you’re going to want to put on a shelf).


This is a 12×12 White Leather Album! beautiful!!!

I also made a small 4×4 album using the same designs so Karla would be able to carry their wedding album in her purse! I wish I had a small copy of my wedding album!

I was contacted by a client to create a custom scripture painting for her mother-in-law. She gave me some idea of what she wanted but then she also gave me something that I love, a creative license. She told me to just go with what I thought would look best using the colors, size and Bible verse that she wanted. I had a great time working on this piece and am happy with how it turned out. I really hope that Susie loves it and that she is proud to give it to her mother-in-law. I love this verse and have a feeling that I will be using this in the future for more gifts. Do you have a favorite Bible verse that I could paint for you?
