a new maternity {awaiting baby lauren}

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

Lets just face it, it would take one very special maternity shot for me to say, “I want to hang that in large format on my wall.” These I will hang on my wall. This is the first actual session I’ve created with zero natural light. The ability to work with strobes has changed everything. I’m able to shoot more fine art in sessions I would have otherwise thought too busy. Maternity is definitely one of those types of sessions (aside from equestrian maternity sessions which are so unique) that I would probably recommend “this would look great in a custom book with the newborn photos.” But pregnancy is such an amazing and dynamic change in a woman’s figure. It should be honored in a most beautiful, (tasteful) and classic way. This allows us to create just that. And as a bonus there are (more…)

The best of 2010

Friday, December 31st, 2010

This year has been awesome. Amazing. An experience. And I can’t thank you all enough for your support, encouragement and true admiration of my incredibly hard work. It is such an honor to see my art in your homes! I look around as I sit here at my desk, on the last day of this almost too fast first year and I am teary-eyed. Your faces are on my walls. Your memories are held in MY heart as well as your own. Your lives have so greatly touched mine that I can’t leave them hidden on an external hard drive back in 2010… they’re coming along with me into this new year. ๐Ÿ˜‰ As I sit here, there is beauty all around me. Your faces, your families, your relationships, your horses.. all just beautiful. I am so blessed. So very, VERY blessed.

So here they are. Here WE are. While you all know it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to pick favorites (its like choosing between my children), I did narrow them down to a few. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you, EACH of you… for a most amazing 2010. As we go forward I’m confident that 2011 will be just as incredible. I can’t WAIT for the next series of experiences to unfold!! Happy NEW YEAR to you all!!! Life IS sweet, and I’m so GLAD we’re savoring it!!

equestrian inspired maternity

The thought crosses every equestrian’s mind at some point: how can I bring this love for my horse into other aspects of my life? (don’t lie— you know you’re thinking it… LOL). Well, we’re finding the answer. Just look! Equestrian themed nurseries and and horse theme bedroom decorating (for the big kids) Wish I’d have thought of this when I was pregna (more…)
