I can’t help but go all out with sessions of my nieces. I’m kinda biased and think they’re the CUTEST little girls in the world (other than my own of course. 😉 ).

Their parents just happen to be the coolest people in the entire world and every time I get an idea they say “absolutely, let’s do it!” So when I told them about my idea for this session they were more than willing. I had it all planned out in my brain and it turned out even better than I expected. The girls were absolutely perfect and full of energy. It was so much fun!!

Happy Birthday Miss “L”. I love you and your sister SO SO much.



*oh and because I’ve already gotten messages on facebook and I’m sure I will get emails for posting this; no babies were put in harms way in the making of this photo. It is merely photoshop magic. Do not try this at home. Miss L was safe the ENTIRE time during the session. Enjoy!!




This Spring has been my busiest ever!!! I feel like I say that all the time. The more time goes by the more I grow as a business as well as a photographer. Not only do I love my job, but I get to work with absolutely amazing people.

Behind every one of these photos are many more wonderful photos and sessions. I wish I could show you everything I’ve been working on lately. But alas there are only so many hours in the day.

If you’re on Facebook, I usually post photos there a few times a week. Check it out at 

Not only do I post photos, I post random specials there as well. So make sure you “like” the page to keep updated about the happenings of Lemondrops!!

So without further ramblings from yours truly, here’s some of my recent favorites….









So in a matter of a couple of weeks I tripled my work load, did a wedding at the top of a mountain and flew to Arizona for some sessions.

SOOOOOO, I’m catching up.

We’ve reached my superinsanelybusy spring season. I’m currently booking for mid May and have no spots left till then. I mean, if I could do sessions/editing in my sleep I would, but alas I don’t think my family wants a cranky mama. 😀

Here’s a few favs from a few weeks ago!!!

Okay, I’m going to be totally honest with you all. A long time ago I used to say that I would never do studio work. Part of it was lack of understanding lights, backgrounds, etc. Part of it was not having the location to do it. But the major reason was that I thought I couldn’t do “fun” work in the studio. I felt as though getting good photos of people was only going to happen outside. I hated the idea of tacky backdrops and cheesy props.

I’ve been doing studio work for a few years now and have been in my studio location for a year and a half.

I have grown to LOVE it.

This session totally and completely confirmed that I could get REAL personality with a group of kids and teens in studio. They all had so much personality and made me really realize how much I can do against a simple backdrop with just a couch.

Here’s some of my favorites from the session.

Here’s a bunch of my favorites from mini sessions I held last month. Sorry I couldn’t post them ALL. I had to narrow it down.

We had so much fun and got TONS of great photos!!!
