It’s not easy being two. Life is hard… playing is tiring, naps are too short, and pacifiers aren’t always handy. Logyn just plain had a hard day..but sometimes it’s alright to document those difficult days of toddlerhood. It’s just not easy being two.
Jordyn is a special young lady. Not only is she my beautiful niece but she has a beauty that shines from within. She’s had a pretty difficult year+ and has faced difficulties no young girl should have to deal with so young, but I’m confident her father is so proud of the way she handles herself and the bright future ahead of her.
We completed her session after shooting some outdoor images in her hometown earlier this fall and we had to shoot one by the street sign dedicated to Jordyn and her brother, Jacob (well, okay, maybe not exactly dedicated to them totally but it’s a pretty cool sign when your name is Menage!)
It’s not too late to get in for your senior portraits. I’m getting some calls from those procrastinating seniors and that’s okay! I’m also getting a few calls from people who were less than happy with their portraits taken elsewhere and I’m happy to work with you as well. You deserve to have images that speak to who you are and you;ll be proud to show off.
Hairsprayed curls, tulle and sequins…it’s all part of the dance mini sessions held at our studio for the last 8 years! It’s a fun time of year and I always enjoy getting a preview of all the colorful costumes- from the itty-bitty toe tapper preschoolers to the graduating seniors who have dedicated so many years of their talent to this art form. This year’s set will feature a sleek clean and modern white looks with some add-ins of tulle and drapery and sparkling lights. The bright background really makes the colorful costumes POP!
I’m also excited to show you some of the specialty creations of collages and storyboards for 2015. I’ve incorporated some special effects to make some unique art pieces featuring your dancer. This year’s inspiration was rain showers, sparklers and reflections with sparkle! I hope you love them as much as I do!
I can’t wait to see your dancer. Remember, these sessions are open to anyone from any dance studio. You can schedule your preferred time slot by visting my dance online scheduler HERE ! Keep in mind these sessions book quickly and fully each year.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing you!
Meet Hudson. He likes long naps, cuddles with mom, and being swaddled up warm. He has the most beautiful head of hair and pretty skin (I tend to think jaundiced babies have a nice glow about them) and he and mommy are looking forward to when daddy gets off duty from service in the Marines. We certainly had to do a few shots to commemorate the special job his daddy is doing- it has to be pretty important to miss out on these first weeks…but before long their family of three will be together again.
Not every newborn chooses to snooze through their session, and Hudson decided he preferred to be awake and see exactly what this crazy women (aka- me- the photographer) was intending to do with him. We got along just fine anyway! Welcome to the world, Hudson Dean!
If you know someone expecting a new bundle in 2015- a gift certificate to our baby plan sessions makes a great gift! The baby plan includes a 3, 6, 9 and 12 month session as well as some other fun goodies to document that all-so important first year. I’d love to meet your precious baby.
It’s always amazing to me to see baby planners when they come for their 3 month session when the last time I’ve seen them is at their newborn session. It shouldn’t surprise me how much a baby can change in 3 months…but it almost always does. Some babies I would never recognize from the tiny little wrapped bundle of just three months earlier. Even at just 3 months baby’s are developing their own personality and and sparkle. Little Izzy was already letting me know that she much preferred to be in her mommy’s arms versus being alone- no words necessary. She is a beautiful little girl and I look forward to seeing her grow and change and let me know even more things about her at her 6 month session.
