Add Lil' Flare


2010 really began my photography business.  I photographed almost 30 seniors from our local high school alone.  May not seem that great to some people, but when you only had 6 the year before, I think it is pretty awesome.  Skylar was one of the seniors I photographed.  She was a great girl and completely open to anything I wanted to try.  The sun was almost setting so I decided to try a little sun flare shot.  The flare is 100% real.  I try to live by the advice, "Shoot 1 for Thee and 1 for Me."  Oddly enough, the "1 for Me" photo always ends up a favorite among my facebook followers and friends.  Now with the 2011 Seniors fixing to graduate, I can't help but be nervous yet excited about the 2012 Seniors coming up.  I am sure I am not the only one who fears our worst critic,  ourselves.  I feel like I am finally finding myself and my style.  I can't wait to grow more this year.  Bring it on spring.  I am ready to get outside!  Thank you I Heart Faces for giving us weekly post to to take ourselves to the next level and show off our work.  I look forward to it every week.  Feel free to check out my website and send me a note.  If you are an addicted Facebook person like myself, you can find me there as well.  Thanks for stopping by! Oh yeah! Why not become a blog follower?

What to Expect...


From the moment you find out you are expecting your first child, life becomes a rollercoster. You are completely excited, but then you begin to question your abilities as a parent, scared of making the wrong choices, nervous about having a newborn to care for, the happiness you feel when you hear their first cry, the instant love that overwhelms you when your eyes meet for the first time, the heart melting experience. I wanted an image that showed that emotion. What do you feel? Thank you Marybeth and Steven for being so patient with me. I am excited to meet your little girl.

Thank you I Heart Faces for weekly contest that make me think out of the box. To see more of their maternity photos, visit my facebook page or my website. Thanks for stopping by!
