We’ve been photographing this little sweetheart since she was born. It’s so gratifying to watch your client’s children grow and show us their cute little personalities. She loves music and definitely likes to show you her “moves”. She could not … Continue reading
When you think back about that first year of your child’s life, it seems like a blur. It feels like little Arden was just born yesterday but as you can see she’s quickly approaching that first Birthday already. Arden’s Mom takes lots of photographs of her in between the times that we do professional photos so she knows just how important it is to capture those little moments that quickly pass. I think it’s cute that Arden has her own personal clothing designer (her Grandmother) who makes such adorable outfits for all of our shoots. Capture these special times in their lives folks. It’s literally gone in a flash.
This shoot was so much FUN! This is a real client (also one of our associate photographers “Laura”) in her own retro styled kitchen. No stylists, no models, no set designers, just a lot of forethought put into this before the shoot. Laura and I shared a Pinterest board before the shoot to collaborate ideas and feeback. Laura had hair and makeup done that morning in the 50’s pin up style and then she put on that swanky little polka dot dress that fit her and this scene to a T. From there we lit the scene, played, laughed and created some really great images.
Then it was time to take advantage of those pretty Carolina Blue skies with an original Pram baby carriage that was found while cleaning out her husband’s grand parent’s house. It had been her mother-in-law’s carriage when she was a baby “in the 50’s”. It was just perfect against that gorgeous Winter sky.
Finished off the shoot with a couple more shots at the old courthouse in downtown Monroe and called it a day. By then “Little Momma” needed a break from those hot little red pumps.

This is a cute little composite from one of our portrait sessions this week. Sometimes just a simple little wooden chair can facilitate a bunch of great expressions.
This is Brittany. She has more horse ribbons than she can count. She’s an avid rider and competes nationally across the country. We just knew that capturing her in her element would yield some stunning results.

Ever look back through old photos and get the biggest smile on your face when you come across that moment, that special place, that special person that makes your heart happy. I can remember going through my Grandmother’s and my Mom’s old photos and studying them for details, faces of people I new, family pets and so forth. Family history and details were learned and shared through our photographs from many generations ago.
This year we’ve decided to create a little family history of our own. Every year we spend time with Mom during the Holidays. We always look forward to her baking those Chocolate Chip Cookies from her old family recipe. She’s baked them for us while we were growing up, our children and now we have our first Grandchild to add to the mix. While looking at the old fashioned mixer sitting on the counter one morning we decided that cookie making with GG (Great Grandmother) would make a great story to capture and pass down for future generations.
We captured everything from the ingredients to the pile of cookies cooling on the countertop. Our 5 1/2 month old Grandson Blayden was in rare form as he handled the chocolate chips, covered himself in flour and entertained all of us during the shoot.
We’ll not only share what we captured online, we’ll create an album for the family as a keepsake to share. In our family it’s important to print the images we capture for future generations to experience.
