I'm an aunt!

Well I've been an aunt before this actually, but by marriage...which is always fantastic. But now my own sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I had the amazing privilege to be in the room too! So much going on in this household, but I wouldnt change it for anything. Don't tell my husband but this does horrible things with my baby fever hehe. 

Now to the good stuff! Introducing Serenity Nicole-Marie born April 20th 2011 weighing 5lbs 14.5oz and a whopping 17inches long!  

Thanks for looking! Pass me around to all your friends!

Everything I do is a luxury if you haven't caught onto that. My long time friend came up to visit and we had a huge shooting party! She has 3 beautiful girls! Miss A here will be 1 on Thursday! So guess what I had to do, A cake smash of course! It went great, she loved the camera and the cake.

Thanks for looking!

Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

This past week I got the luxury to take my cousins maternity pictures! Its a pretty cool luxury if you ask me. I love doing what I do. Growing bellies are adorable! Even with the moody mom attached, hehe. I love my cousin, she's always a happy sarcastic person. I suppose to it runs in the family ;).

Enjoy!! :)

Sunday Sneak Peek

Ok I realize I'm a few days late, but I have very good reason. We had a very busy Sunday! My husband and I had a day away from the kids, it was so nice! We went to the casino, I turned $20 into $50. I'm a baller haha. Then we looked around at Nebraska Furniture Mart after we went to the movies and saw Rango! Had such a nice day away from the boys.

Now for your sneak peek, don't get mad at me Im a little late. I'm gonna work on something to post on Tuesdays too. Trying to figure out super cute names. I'm rambling again. Have you ever noticed how much work they give kindergartners? Well if you don't have one in school yet, you'll understand soon enough. If you've been there done that kind of thing, its insane on how much they need them to know just in Kindergarten. I don't remember needing to know all this.

Seth is working on math work, he loves numbers so this comes naturally to him.

Thanks for looking!

I Heart Faces| Fix it Friday #89

This is my first try for Fix it Friday. I always find myself too busy or I forget. I need to work on that. This is a quick post and run, I need to leave to take my oldest to school.

This is SOOC(straight out of the Camera). I did not take this photo.

My edit, I saw a nice texture being added here with rust wash.

I Heart Faces Photo Challenge | Anything But Face

After much delibration I decided to be casual yet feel good about myself. We get so wrapped up in being moms or working we forget that a simple change of clothes can make a huge change in our attitude. In this case, I decided to just change my shoes. Instead of boring tennis shoes, I sported my wedges today while taking my 6yr old to school and for once I actually felt good.

Sunday Peeks

I'm going to try to do something new, hopefully I'll remember to do this every weekend. If not then remind me please? I often take pictures of whats going on in my own house, I just always fail to show it. Well let me rephrase that I dont share with you all what I do at home. Hopefully this will change all that, at least give you a perspective what I do in a day.

We have a german shepard named Lulu. She's a spoiled baby hehe. She tends to think she can sit on the couch and take up all the room. I was booted off the couch and onto the floor, which kinda worked out cause i can get cool shoots like this.

My husband and I got bored and started playing with the boys' hand light thing, for the life of me I cannot remember whats it called. Anyway we turned off all the lights and just had fun with it. This is one of my favorites that we did.

Thanks for taking a sneak peek into my daily life :)

Maternity - looking for a fashion forward, hip mama due before April 10, 2011 (outdoor session)

Newborn- must be under 10 days
Girl age 3-6 years old (outdoor session)
Boudoir- must pay for own room, must be female 

Entries must include a photo within the past year and other important info (names, address, ages, due dates, etc.) to be considered. Thank you!

First and foremost I am an artist. There are times when I get an idea in my head that I just HAVE to photograph. As many artists do, I pull inspiration from so many places and when that strikes I want to fulfill it!

This is good news for you!

As I get ideas that I want to photograph I will often put out "fresh face casting calls" looking for a specific type of model. This will usually include a complimentary session as a gift to you for helping me fulfill the idea and some other complimentary goodies I offer. For these events, no minimum purchase is required.

All I ask in return is complete creative control (of course we are always safe!) and a signed model release which means I may use the images produced for marketing my business (never with your name attached) on my website, blog, facebook, etc.

Everyone Loves A Baby Belly!

I'm getting nerdy with these titles arent it? At least I'm interesting, or I try to be. These are for my sister, whom is always one of the best models I can find when I need one. Now her lovely daughter will be the second best. I'm so excited to finally have a niece, from my side of the family. I'm already an aunt from my husbands side, but this times its my turn. There will be more to come within the next month or so as she gets bigger. She's due mid April!

Enjoy the peek!

Rose Droplets

I've done waterdroplets before. I've seen water droplets done on roses before. Of course I wanted to at least try it. What better time to try than with the roses I got for valentines day! I could use more work, maybe I'll try it again with a different flower or another techinque.
Thanks for looking

Cake Smash | Olathe Kansas Photographer

I have so much fun with first birthday cake smash sessions. Kids are hilarious anyway, but give them a big pile of sugar with full permissions and well it can only = fun. You really can’t guarantee much with it. Some kids love it. Some kids could care less. But you can guarantee that it’s me, mom and dad pretty much laughing for 45 minutes straight.

Here is a sneak peek from this awesome little dudes cake smash! Happy Birthday Caleb!

Happy Turkey Day, Christmas and New Year!

I'm horrible, I havent posted a blog in what seems and feels like forever. Honestly I haven't been busy at all, at least with photography anyway. Life just kinda happens that way, you know? It got cold and not everyone is as crazy as I am by going out in the cold and taking pictures. But I do take them, just not as often as I should, as well as not posting them here. But that will soon change, I have loads of new things I get to use so I'll be putting those to the test very soon. Its the new year, which means new beginnings for everyone. In the mean time you'll probably be seeing more of my boys in pictures till it warms up some more. This weather is crazy, but hey thats the midwest for you!

I do have something to show you. On Christmas Eve I did manage to set up something. I was able to get macro water droplets and I'm fairly proud of them if I say so myself.

Thanks for looking! I hope everyone got what they were wanting for Christmas and had a great New Year!
