Here are a couple of images of mine which were recently recognized:

Family Matters Mini Session

December is here! With the holiday season in full play, I know most of us are rushing around and trying to get everything done. It is important to just stop and really be thankful for your family...appreciate them and cherish the moment. Spending time with your family is actually the best holiday gift. ;)

I meet up with family "K" for a mini session a few days ago. They wanted some traditional family portraits for both themselves and to use as gifts for the grandparents. Check out some of their images below:

*Jen and I go way back- middle school classmates and college day coworkers SO even though she was here for family pictures I could not resist snapping this one. You still look awesome, girl!
And, Miss "H"- Thanks for offering a smile to my camera on your way out. LOL! Here is that artistic image I said I would try to do for your myspace account. 8th grade can be a tough year- so much is going on and changing.. hang in there. You are a very pretty young lady. I will put the handful of remaining images in a slideshow for you and it will be ready by tomorrow. You are a beautiful family- so full of energy and fun to be around. Thanks again for a wonderful session!
