This morning’s session was a lot of fun. I was watching the weather pretty close all week as I was worried about the storms hindering family portrait sessions this weekend. Luckily, we had a beautiful morning! It was a tad more windy than we had hoped, but the big gusts weren’t scheduled to be in the area until towards the end of this family’s session so we were good! Sure, we had to do a few tricks to get the balloons to cooperate, but the effort was SO worth it! Don’t you think?! The time of day for portraits is so important. The image on the left was taken right after sunrise and the earth is just glowing in delight. The portrait on the right was taken an hour later and it’s still magical, but takes on a different feel. I love both images and how the sun highlights this family’s beauty. You can just feel the love through their portraits. They enjoy the outdoors and I can tell that they will have fun on many adventures together in the future! Enjoy the sneak peek! Can’t wait for you to see the rest!
This lil’ man’s infant photography session took place when he was seven weeks old and he was just the sweetest! He is so loved by his parents and his doggie, Noodle. I love seeing the connections between family members with their newest addition. Such a special and intimate time and I’m so honored to be trusted to capture these times for families. Enjoy the sneak peek and congratulations on your beautiful baby boy. You are truly blessed.
Spring has sprung and Easter is here! What better way to celebrate than with a portrait of a fresh baby surrounded by Spring’s beauty?! Hope you have a great holiday weekend with your loved ones.
Ahhhhh…Spring… What a wonderful time to get outside for customized portraits! Yesterday, I wrote about the workshop I attended in Utah and today I thought I’d share with you some more images that I took that I got to set up the way I like while I was there. It was a bit cooler and bit drizzly on this particular day, but I was able to shoot through it with these wonderful subjects. It’s all about finding the right light in any location. It’s how I shoot and what I love about the images I create for families. Spring sessions are already booked full, but there are many openings for the Summer and Fall still.

Every year, I budget for at least two workshops – one that will advance my photography skills and one that’s geared towards running my business. Last week I attended my first photography workshop of the year by the ever talented Nichole Van based out of Salt Lake City. A couple of years ago, I bought her workshop in the box, which is basically a book and DVD that is just overflowing with photography information. That one book, written by Nichole, really made me see photography a bit different and helped take my work to another level. Nichole is such a great teacher and is so open with sharing her knowledge. I was happy to find that she is the same in person. Her husband, Dave, is also a wealth of information and the two of them make such a wonderful team. They truly are blessed to have each other. The workshop was very informative and as an added bonus, I made some life-long friends in the process. Below are two images from Nichole Van’s Professional Workshop. I decided to post these two first as it’s a bit out of the norm from my regular body of work. It actually reminds me of a family portrait session I did two Autumn’s ago in Alton, IL. I don’t get to capture those older than toddlers that often, but when I do, this type of artistic treatment is quite fun and gets my creative juices flowing. I start thinking of what I could with a family in this type of environment with their cute lil’ kiddos. Perfect for the modern family!
