Me, myself and I.

I forgot to post the pictures of myself that Mark took! So here I am... I really enjoyed being in front of the camera. Probably just because I felt so comfortable with Mark. It was a gorgeous day(the past few days have been AMAZING!!) and I didn't have any good pictures of myself so I figured Mark could get a few shots. Here are some of my favorites:

Didn't he do a great job?! Mark also came with me to my newborn shoot yesterday (which was a disaster) and was a TON of help! It was really nice to have an "assistant." ;) Especially one who is as knowledgable and good at photography! Anyway...I will post some of the newborn pictures (although, I didn't get many) tomorrow if we are able to edit them by then. They need a lot of Photoshop magic! ;)

See you all soon!

If at first you don't succeed...

I finished Anna's photo shoot yesterday (of course it had just snowed 82 feet the day before that and we could hardly get to any good shots). I think they turned out pretty well and I'm excited to give her the disk and I think I'll surprise her by printing out a few of my favorites and giving them to her as a gift! I just like her a lot. =) There is one photo that I think is absolutely stunning and is definitely my favorite from this shoot and is one of my favorites that I've ever taken. Ready for this....(okay it's probably not that good, but I really like it.)

And for some reason...when I upload my pictures to Blogger, the quality goes down significantly. So just know that it looks a lot better on my computer! =) Here's a couple more from yesterday:

She was a lot of fun and senior pictures are my favorite!

I have a newborn shoot tomorrow and I'm so excited/nervous! I am praying they turn out fantastic because I am going to be so embarrassed if they don't and newborns are so difficult. But they are so gorgeous, so I'm thankful that I get a chance to photograph this sweet new baby (she'll be a week old)!

I had Mark take some pictures of ME, yesterday and I'm planning on posting those come back if you want to see them. =)

Photoshoot fail?

I did Senior pictures for a friend's sister yesterday...we did them a little too late in the day, and then of course, it started raining on us after I'd gotten about 10 pictures. We rescheduled for tomorrow, but I thought I'd post some of the better (not necessarily great) pictures I managed to get yesterday.

They were lots of fun though so I'm excited to try again. I am just praying the weather is good!

I have three newborn shoots in the next 4 months and I am
SO excited about them!!! I have been wanting to try some ideas but I haven't had any newborns to take pictures of. I also have one maternity shoot coming up soon that should be fun! I was looking through some of my older pictures and found some that I did for a band in Spokane called The Van Marter Project. They are still some of my favorite pictures to date and I started itching to do more band photos. Maybe I'll find some willing subjects soon! =)

What I've been up to...

So I kind of let the blog die. Well it's more like I didn't feed it for several months and slowly it shriveled into nothing and finally breathed it's last breath and now it's sitting in the graveyard of the cyber world and all you can smell is the stench of the rotting posts. I am so SORRY!!! So anyway...I thought I'd show you some of the things I've shot lately (are you ready for an overload of pictures??):

These first three are some senior pictures that I did for an
awesome friend of mine:

These next three are senior pictures that I drove to Spokane to do! They were lots of fun!

And these next pictures are from two maternity shoots I did. I absolutely LOVE them!

I've got a few more shoots coming up soon and maybe if I will quit being so lazy I'll actually tend to my blog more! In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy the pictures I posted! See you soon! ♥ ♥ ♥

C girl

The other day I got to do a photo shoot with my friend's little girl. She is just 3 months and cute as a button! She was a great sport! And considering we did the shoot inside (and I normally do them outside) they turned out pretty well...

Here are some I thought were super cute:

Isn't that green blanket to DIE for?! She brought it with her and I was thrilled that she did! And as soon as she left I was online buying one for myself! ;) Here is my absolutely favorite picture from the shoot:

We almost forgot to do that last shot! Baby C was actually already buckled in her car seat so we just draped a blanket all around her and snapped a couple just before they left. And good thing we did!

Well I hope you all are having a super great weekend so far!

Worst blogger of the year award goes to....

Okay, okay! I admit it! I'm terrible at blogging! I have no idea why it is so much trouble for me to post consistently! I've got PLENTY to post about, but I never do. Well I'm back with one of my favorite shoots!

A newborn shoot!!!

I got to shoot baby Cash yesterday who is only 9 days old. He was so sweet and didn't cry once! I am very happy with the way these pictures turned out. Say "HI" to baby Cash!

And this is mommy and baby! Big brother was taking a nap and daddy was at work otherwise they would have gotten in on this too!

Well there you have it, folks! I'm off to love on my boys but maybe I'll show you some other stuff I'm excited about soon!
