Hi, and welcome to my blog! Here you will find sneak peeks of my recent sessions, featured posts of sessions and weddings, as well as a few personal photos thrown into the mix. I love to blog and I think it’s a great way to show off my amazing clients and share my personality with you. I believe that choosing a photographer to document your life is a very personal thing, and it’s important to find someone that you can build a connection with.
Outside of all the fun photos, my blog also has important announcements, helpful tips for both clients and photographers, and the occasional random post of things I like. If you have a great idea for a post on my blog, feel free to share it with me and don’t forget to leave comments on posts you love.
We had a blast visiting Pensacola at the end of July. We went all the way to the end of the beach where Fort Pickens is and it was absolutely beautiful! The kids had a great time. Well, October mostly slept. I guess he liked the huge sound machine! I harassed my poor, tired family into some family beach photos at the end of the day, thanks to the tripod and remote shutter release. On our second day, we had more beach time and checked out Fort Pickens for just a few minutes (history nerd, what can I say?). On Monday, we stopped by the Naval Air Museum for a while before we headed home. If you’re in Pensacola, I highly recommend it, it’s a great museum! Plus, it’s free and run by volunteers, which is pretty impressive.
Here are some photos of some of the cutest kids I know from our first day on the beach!
Happy Wednesday all.
I’m in love with the color scheme we used for Miss A’s cake smash mini session! Purple, gray and white is so pretty together. She was a little bit shy, but she was into her cake and did give us a couple of smiles. This sweet girl really wanted to share her cake with mommy and daddy. Here are some of my favorite images.
Have a very happy Monday, all.
I know I am just slightly behind in posting this (more than three months!). But, here it is. First I will say, I am really happy with how the party turned out. The kids all had so much fun, as did I. We even had Mr. Jon the Science Guy (my best friend’s husband, who is a real life science guy) put on a fun science show for the kids that had them oohing and ahhing. I did a photo booth and got lots of awesome photos of people I love.
But, in a moment of anti-fluff, I’ll be honest as to why I hesitated so long in posting the photos. I really hate the appearance of my home and am embarrassed by it. This is why you almost never see me post at home photos, because I don’t like people seeing my home. So many photographers out there have these glorious, light filled homes and that’s definitely not what I live in. I’m generally not a person who cares much about keeping up with the Joneses but this is one thing I can’t shake. But, today I read an article that really hit close to home for me and I wanted to share it really quick, before I get onto the fun photos. Give me Gratitude or Give me Debt. This article is a great read to help you remember to be thankful for what you have when you’re feeling down about the small stuff.
Anyway! Now onto the fun stuff! First off, all the photos below are a mix of photos taken by Jenna from Snapberry Photographs and photos I took myself. The ‘big’ cake was made by Piece of Cake Bakery. The adorable cake topper was made by Handcrafted Critters by Carly. The smash cake (the science beaker) was made by me. I definitely won’t be quitting my day job The cookies were also made by me. If you have any other questions about where I got something, feel free to ask me!
Onto the pictures.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend!
Being almost fifteen months old, can I still truly call October a ‘baby’? He seems more and more like a toddler every day. It’s funny how much you learn and grow as a person with each child. He is like Zaida in ways, but he’s very different in other ways. But, he’s the sweetest, most loving, outgoing little guy you could hope to meet. I can’t get enough of his crazy hair and dimpled grin. <3 Yes, I took these way after he actually turned one, but life happens, so what can you do? He's still a year old, after all
Thanks for stopping by and happy Monday! I will hopefully be blogging his party (finally!) later this week, so stay tuned.
