last post of the old year!

I can't believe this year is already over and where it has taken me. I started off the year having a baby and moving a week later out of state, started my business in august, and had my first interview in Dec. I've had such a wonderful year and I can't wait to see what the next one brings.

I surely couldn't do it with out my hubby's support. He's my rock and my shoulder. And with out my mom... the babysitter. And with out all of the wonderful clients that some how always become friends!!

So here's to you and yours. Make it a great 2008.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

And now, on with the show.... pictures from my last session of '07.

We actually found them in bed holding hand with he covers over them when they were both 2 right before we moved away... pretty funny! So here are their christmas pictures for this year! It was misting on us the whole time! So we only took pictures for about 7 minutes! We worked very quickly! I hope everyone is having a great week!

my first interveiw!!

So the lovely girls over at Pink Ink Studios thought I might make for a good interview!! SO go over there today and check it out! Don't forget to grab some of their fun stuff if you're a photographer! This is my first interview and I'm "pretty dang excited!" (to be said with a Nacho Libre, spanish accent!)

And they requested a head shot to go withit... so this is what they got. And just as a warning, double bubble gum is quite sticky... if you attempt this picture, try and get it on the frist try, after that it will just be plastered to you face.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

a little of this, and a little of that!

My first wedding....

Well, satruday was a first for me! I had my first wedding to shoot and it was SOOOO much fun! It's amazing how different and NICE it is being able to take pictures from people who can take direction! I really had a great time and the couple was so sweet and so fun... they made it easy on me! I have to admit though, I was more excited to edit my first shoe shot than anything else.... don't ask me why. Maybe its because I'm always editing faces, that the opposite was a nice chage! So here a my first few from my very fisrt wedding! And can I get a little "cheers" to the newly weds?!?!

And talk about a dream child, he's one and he didn't run anway from the camera, he doesn't even like to crawl, all he wanted to do was stand!!! How great is that? We defiantely had soem fun and tried some new locations, so they may become some of my new favorite spots!! April, I hope you like your little sneek peak!

This weekend I was lucky enough to have a session with some really good friends of mine! They are some of the most kind and wenderful people ever!!! I had so much fun photographing them and their cutie pie! You may remember him from a few posts back... but any how, this was a red couch session, so I'll get to some of those in a bit, but for now i just couldn't pass up posting these for her sneek peak!! Look how fun they are! Molly (the dog) was even kind enough to sit still... and she just isn't a sit still kind of dog! Hope you like these amanda!!!

about as fall as we get...

Living in Texas is funny... with in a two day period everything falls off the trees and is dead. No real "fall" around here.... Crazy. So instead of pposting some great pictures of the beautiful leaves that we have here (they're still green or they're gone.) I thought I'd post a little bundled up Cutie-pa-tootie!! My cutie-pa-tootie actually! And yes, it was cold enough to be wearing a sweater... it was like, 65 out there! Woo! Cold weather's a-comin'! Ha ha! Hope these make ya smile and happy fall!

She wore me out!!!

Jk... but only slightly! She was a mover and a shaker! But in a perfectly good way! I'm not sure I've ever seen a faster one year old... and a cuter one year old! She defintely kept me on my toes! After that session it made me want a little girl so bad! Such a cute dress and cute shoes... someday! Well, sorry I'm late getting this up Nicol,, but I hope you like it!! You guys were so much fun to photograph and little miss is seriously too cute to handle. I may just have to set her up with my little guy. He tends to like the older ladies, but I don't think he'd have to think twice once he saw her! So here's your little sneek peak!! Enjoy!

I have a lot of clients wanting to know what storyboards look like and what exactly they are... and since I have someone who's wanting a couple I thought i would showcase them for everyone to see. Well I'm sure remember the cuties that I photographed the other week, well their super cute mom wants a storyboard for each boys room. So we decided to do a 10 x 20 for each boys room and this is what we came up with. The possibilites for these things are really endless! THe first is 10x20 with 4 pictures that vary in size, and the 2nd is also 10x20 with two 7x7's... so each is different, but FABULOUS! Each storyboard comes mounted and sprayed for stabiltiy and quality. They are soooo popular right now and SO STINKIN CUTE!

this one's for you Amy...

Well, it doesn't take long for them to grow up... thats for sure. This little girl was just a little tyke when I first met her. Now she's become so beautiful! So here ya go mom... this is for you. THis is the picture her mom has chosen to send out on her Baptism anouncement. Its hard to believe she's going to be 8.

Because I loved the pictures of the boys so much i decided to make a little storyboard out of it! Fun huh? I love love love!!!!!!!!!!! storyboards. They're jsut so fun and fresh, and they put the pieces together that tell a story. Go click on the picture to make it bigger and have yourself a wonderful night. Sit back , relax, and enjoy the smile on innocence. Good night!

Because I know their moms looking.....

I thought I would post a little sneak peek for molly, mom to quite possibly the 2nd cutest set of boys around! (And I say 2nd only because I have three boys 3 and under, and they always are first on my list!! :) ) But we had so much fun playing the other day! Thanks for having us over Molly and letting us take pictures of your kids! It so fun to photograph such fun and CUTE kids! I love what I do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
