Sneak Peek Miss "S"

A few days ago I worked with a wonderful client and I just wanted to give her a little peek at what I have been working on since we went our seperate ways.
Miss "S" drove several hours just to work with me. She is a very creative, upbeat, fun person to be around. LOTS of positive energy. Thank you, Miss "S" for hiring me to produce both some classy and creative images of you. You were a delight to work with.
Here are a handful of my favorites so far:

A Few Firsts

Hello All!

I know I have not been very active with my Blogging this month. Basically I have been laying low. The dreary weather has kept me inside a lot.... and I have had to postpone a few shoots this month. The second half of April should be a fun one. Keep your eye out for some images from a couple of great sessions I have planned for this weekend. Oh, and if you haven't noticed yet- this is my FIRST post on my NEW Blog. Hope you like the larger images and new design. It feels much more "Me."

Another FIRST for me happened last week at 1x (onexposure). The below image received "Screeners Choice"status. What a thrill. I adore the artistic talent at that site and must remind myself to take a little more time for my art... so that I can share some over there. :)

"Where art thou..."
Model: Chelsey R.

They also published this image a couple of days ago:

"Hide & Seek"
Model: Kayla G.

Another "FIRST" for me was a POTD win for the Monthly Theme category at Digital Image Cafe . Kinda cool. :)
The cafe also recognized two other images of mine as POTD this month so far.

"Personal Space"
Model: Kayla G.

I have also been hired to work with 2 new models and stylists for the FIRST time very soon! Yay!! Life is good. I love working with new people...especially when Make-up and Fashion are involved.

And I have my FIRST scheduled Little Punk Give-a-way Session this Sunday! Wish me Luck!

Little Punk "Give-a-way" Winners

I absolutely loved receiving all of your stories and pictures for the little punk give-a-way session! I had dozens of entries- and hope to get each and every one of the entered kids behind my camera one day. If your child did not win the free session this time, take advantage of my Spring Special-let's set up a date! (See the pink special in the right hand column of my blog)

I actually wrote out each child's name on a little piece of paper, folded them up, and dropped them into my fiance's baseball cap. He drew the winning name. Well, actually, he drew TWO names... and then just told me to do them both. LOL. It worked out fine because I had planned on giving away 2 sessions (one winner and one referral) anyhow.

And the little punk winners are:

Miss "A"

and Miss "J"

(above photos were sent in, not taken by me)

Congrats!!! I have some FUN things planned for us. Despite the fact that others have not had the easiest of times photographing these little punks , I am staying optimistic!! ha! Both little ladies are 2 years old... the whole terrible two thing is a rumor, right?? ;)

Winners- please contact me ASAP to set up an April shoot date.

If you are a parent who is frustrated with getting your children photographed, give custom photography a try!!! Get outside, on their level- and have some fun. Be patient with the kids- and perhaps become a little more open minded in deciding what a "good picture" is. A devilish smile or pouty expression can make an adorable image!! OR give me a call and book an appointment today. I love working with kids, have lots of creative ideas and am very patient. :)
