One thing you should know about Anna,,, is that her smile is magically attached to my lens. I’d ask her to give me a serious look, and she’d have it down perfect. Then, I’d raise my lens and as my lens would come up her smile would appear. Anna may be one of the happiest, biggest smile, easy to work with young ladies that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing in quite a while. I had more fun than I can adequately convey in words. I hope the photos show how much fun we had.

This boy has the cutest smile … possibly ever, but he did not like the wind at all. I love getting to photograph milestones in the lives of my clients and turning one… is a huge milestone. I mean, one is when you finally get to start holding up a finger to tell people how old you are. It’s the decline of … “how old is he?”… “oh, he’s 11 MONTHS”. It’s a BIG day. Anyway, thank you to Tom and Camie for stopping by and allowing me the pleasure of getting to spend the morning with Thomas.

Who would have imagined getting two beautiful snow days in one winter in this area? Two years ago I watched my two youngest children attempt to make a snow man out of less than 1/8th inch of sleet on top of the picnic table. Today, I came home from my two portrait sessions to find a 7ft tall snow man being built in my front yard. Life is good.
Last night, on a whim, I tweeted that I needed a couple for a shoot this morning… and ended up accepting a second. We had a blast. I know, without a doubt, that there will be more photos in the galleries that I like better than these, but I promised to get some of them on the blog tonight. Here they are. After that, I’m taking off my photographer hat and putting on my dad slippers and finding my spot on the sofa.
The first four are of Nikki and Tyler, while the last four are of Heather and Lyndle. Thanks to both couples for braving the snow/ice packed roads this morning.

Today I sat in my office, working on designing graduation announcements and sorting images for an album. While searching through massive archives of photographs from the past decade, I ran across a simple photo from one of Ian’s t-ball games and found myself dreaming of green grass and warmer temps. Dreaming of sitting on weathered bleachers, eating way-to-salty popcorn and cheering for both teams. I found myself not working. Instead of working, I was more inclined to stare out my window at the dormant trees, the brown grass and the remnants of ice and snow that clung to the ground… hoping to see them start to turn green. Imagining that the sunshine outside was as warm as it pretended to be.
It’s February 3, 2011 and I’m ready for winter and it’s bleakness to fade into our memories. I’m ready for lush fields of grass in which I have a bride standing in a $3000.00 wedding gown. For beautiful shade trees for an engaged couple to “hang out” while I move about them with my camera.
Guess what,,, it’s not that time yet. So for now, I’m going to take my clients into the dormant world and make art. Art that is their own. I’m going to put on my warmest hat, grab my gear and with confidence and lack of fear, charge headstrong into the world and create beautiful images. … and while I’m doing it, I’m going to dream of t-ball games and endless hours on the soccer field.
Happy Thursday, everybody. Face the cold without fear or regret.

Yesterday Ryan and Samantha brought Alli into the studio for her first photo session. I have photographed a lot of babies, but Alli was one of the smoothest sessions I’ve ever had. She seemed to love the camera….. even though I know it was me that she really loved.
Here are eight of my faves.
