This past month I did photos at my home based studio for the McNeils. Their two little girls are adorable, and a joy to take photos of. I was super impressed with mom and dad’s way of parenting. Throughout the whole shoot they had such an amazing way of interacting with the girls. They really taught me a thing or two about interacting better with children. For example something as simple as the the animal game! You say an animal and the oldest of the two would make that noise and the youngest would just smile really big. They loved it!
Family photos are so important to do around the holidays and I’m so lucky to see the love between so many families. It’s a constant reminder of what the true meaning of Christmas and the New Year is all about. Spending quality time together!
Recently, I have been shooting for Grand Magazine in there advertising section for many business in the area. It’s been wonderful and I have met some great business owners, one of them being Christine from Eyeview Optical. She so personable and very knowledgeable in her field. She’s basically sold me on a pair of her very well priced glasses. For any of you looking for new eye ware, Eyeview has a great selection and fabulous pieces that really compliment your face.
Grand’s next issue will be coming out in January/February so be on the look out for Christine’s add for Siht Optical, her new location opening in the Bauer lofts. A must see and an easy stop if any of you are Vicenzo’s shoppers because their new location will be in going in there as well!Details
Michelle came up with this great idea for a photo shoot of her son Izayah, to do themed photos for each month of the year! The shoot went amazing and Izayah cooperated so well with changes and little breaks, but he really did make his way back in front of the camera again instead of going off to play. He’s got a lot of energy and every time I looked at him he was always doing something different.
For Christmas, Michelle is making up calenders for family showing each themed month. It’s a fantastic Christmas idea! These would also make wonderful birthday gifts for mom and dad or the grandparents. It’s a gift that you can keep longer than the year, look back, and smile:)Details
A few weekends ago John and Becky came by to the studio to get some photos taken. They hadn’t had any professional photos done together since their wedding day! It’s a good thing they booked an appointment because that’s way to long to be away from the camera. What a fantastic job they both did!
This shoot was inspired by a photographer Becky and I both love, Annie Leibovitz. The shot that inspired us both is one Annie took of Julia Roberts in her massive black crinoline dress in the mud. Becky was so excited she had made her dress for the shoot. From over 20 yards of crinoline! They coordinated so well in their black and white attire it would be hard for anybody not to take photos of them.Details
