WHEW!!! Things have been crazy busy around here for the holiday season. I haven’t been able to blog every session, so I apologize for the lack of postings lately.

I did a bunch of mini sessions on Saturday and while I don’t have time to post them, I did a couple of sessions that included dogs!! Now I’m not new to photographing dogs, but since having my new studio, this was my first time photographing dogs in the studio!!

It was such a fun experience. I hope more folks with their furry friends come in to see me!!

It was hysterical getting her on this chair. I just loved Rubi!!!

At least once a year I take my kiddos out for a fun session of the three of them. Sometimes I’m successful and sometimes I’m not. Thankfully this time I was. Of course, I couldn’t have done it without my awesome assistant Amanda. Thank you lady!!!

My daughter is how I got started in the photography business. She and my boys are still my favorite subjects. Although doing sessions with them seem to get more difficult as the years go by. I think they are done with mom taking their photos ;)

My kids are why I do what I do.

how they really are during sessions and why I need an assistant :)

I have a confession to make.

I loathe most normal boring family photos. I take them quite often and I have them displayed of my own family around my house. Not that there’s anything bad about these photos, it’s just…

Boring.

What I REALLY love is the moments between families that aren’t perfect. Real smiles, comfortable clothing, and lots of laughter. I love the moments that make you smile or even cry. The REAL moments in life. I love the photos that are perfectly imperfect.

I had the pleasure of photographing a family this last week that wanted those moments of laughter and playing. Of course we took plenty of “normal” photos (and those are always great too), but in this post I’m going to show you moments that I captured that I love.

This was one of those sessions that I loved so much I wish it was my own family in the photos.

Thanks for letting me capture your happy moments!

the perfect Christmas card photo!

sb1GORGEOUS girls!

Thanks for reading! I hope these photos make you smile.

Most kids are pretty shy when they first meet me. It takes a few minutes to warm up and we play games and have fun so they can get to know me better. This little girl wanted nothing to do with me…

at first.

Of course then she warmed right up in no time!!

(Okay and as a side note, I swear I photograph the most beautiful children E V E R.

This little girl is so stinking cute it’s not even funny.)
