What a character I have on my hands! For some reason every time I go into the Children’s Place I find the CUTEST outfits and just HAVE to have a photo shoot with Ryland. I can’t wait until little Easton is big enough to join in the fun! The first set of pics was taken in my garage with my favorite backdrop and the second set was taken in the desert near our house. We had a great time!! Thanks Ry for being so cooperative!
I would really like to book a few more destination weddings for 2009 or 2010. I have booked some in Seattle and Spokane, but want to expand to different parts of the good ‘ole USA (or elsewhere). I have an AWESOME deal for those you who are planning a destination wedding. So, if you or someone you know is planning a destination wedding, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org to get the scoop on the deal!!
I did this session for a friend a few days before I had Easton. Normally, I would prefer to do maternity pics outside, in natural light, but me being WAY PREGGO, I asked if they minded doing them in a “studio” setting. When I say “studio”, that means I set up my black backdrop in the playroom of our house, hooked up a few studio lights and called it good! We got some really cute pics and I am sooooo excited to meet the new addition in late March/early April! Congrats you two!!
I have been complaining lately that I don’t have any BIG prints around the house…mostly 5 x 7′s. I always encourage my clients to purchase big prints since they look sooooo good, however, I didn’t have ANY around my own house!! So, I took action and created a photo wall and I am SO HAPPY with how it turned out. The big prints are 24 x 20 gallery mounted, the side prints are 11 x 14 and eventually I will put two 8 x 10′s to each side of the “D”. Gallery Mounted prints are a new product for me, that I absolutely LOVE!! These will take the place of canvas prints. They are mounted on a 3/8″ piece of wood (probably something more technical that “wood”, but that is the best way to describe it) and are SUPER sturdy. No framing required since they have a nice beveled edge. :-) Here are the pics of the new wall:
Easton is now 2.5 weeks old. He is now more alert and staying awake for longer periods of time. I still can’t get over all the hair that he has, it is WILD! Here is a quick shot from about 2 days ago.
On a side note…BRIDES: I am back in the swing of things and have started scheduling both consultations and e-sessions for the spring. I still have some great dates available for the fall of 2009 and spring 2010, so feel free to give us a ring or email!
