I LOVE capturing LOVE!

Being a Photographer really is the best job! Not only do I get to hang out with AMAZING people (my clients really are wonderful!) but I get to freeze time for them. I get to freeze that moment in time and let them have it forever. Being able to capture the love the parents have for their kids and the fun they have together is priceless! That's what Family Sessions are all about. Being able freeze that moment in time to help you remember all the joy your family brings you.

This Family Session was exactly that! The kids ROCKED. The parents ROCKED. We ran around, and played and just had a GREAT time! You can definitly see the love in these photos!

Christmas Card Mania!!

Well, Christmas Cards have finally been sent, so now I can show you all the fun I've been having!! I love designing cards. It is just one of my many creative outlets I have/need. Do you ever have one of those days where if you don't do something creative you might just go crazy?! Well I do, especially in January and February when photography is slower. I wonder what random  piece of furniture I will paint or what fun item I will find on  the side of the road to claim as my own. Ahhh......the possibilities....
But for now, I have been extremely busy photographing lots of super cute families and designing fun cards for them.
Here is just some of what has been keeping me busy this month:

. . . and, of course MY Family!  I love pictures of my kids! The family picture was taken by the wonderful Brain Harr . (It was weird being on the other side of the camera!) So happy to have such a cute picture of my family.

it's the most wonderful { busy } time of the year . . . .

I LOVE Christmas Time! Especially now that I have kids. I  have enjoyed getting to tell Owen about Santa {he is still not so sure about him though, he doesn't like men in hats with beards...} and also crack up every time he puts baby Jesus into his toy train for a ride.

I also love Christmas because I get to photograph SO MANY beautiful families! The hardest part is waiting to  blog a bout them since I don't want to  spoil their super cute Christmas Card pictures! So,  since I can't post  pictures quite yet I will show you newest idea. CHRISTMAS CARDS!!

This year I began designing Christmas Card templates. Some of my clients were looking for an extra special way to display their photographs  from our photo session together. So, I began to design a few and then the creative juices just started flowing! {I always love when that happens!!}
