Michaela has the most beautiful eyes and is so incredibly sweet and sincere!  We had a wonderful time capturing beautiful images the last couple of days to celebrate her senior year of high school.  Can’t wait to finish the rest of her images and show her this week!

This week I had a surprise run-in with Brooke at K-Mart with her mom.  Such a darling little girl!  We had fun taking pictures with my Victorian set a couple of years ago.  Now, at five years old, she was sharing her new smile with me, as she had just lost her first tooth!  We had fun visiting and as we were going to our respective cars, she ran back over to me with a picture that she had colored in her hand.  These moments remind me of how much I love my job!


Time Spent Retouching

July 3rd, 2012


After a long day of running – dentist office, grocery store, and mowing the lawn – there is something very rewarding about working on images for a client.  It gives me time to slow down a bit,  and concentrate on making a beautiful image even more breath-taking.  It’s fun to “play” with my images for a bit and also reflect on how special each of my subjects is, each with their own unique qualities and beauty.  It’s usually at times like this where I will notice, “Wow!  She has her mom’s eyes!” or “His smile is exactly like his dad’s smile!”  These are qualities I sometimes miss while I’m on pace to create the best session experience that I can.  It is so much fun and such a priviledge when I am allowed to record these moments!
