Check out this sweet Christmas session I had at our house on Sunday!
Meet Carl, to precious right?
It took him a little bit to warm up, but once he did we couldn't keep him still.


Christmas Decor

Hi again! Ok so since I have been at home for the last week and loving every minute of it, I have had some time and today I decided to take some photos of my Christmas decorations! Not all of them of course! I will try and post more tomorrow, but between cleaning and cooking all today in prep for Christmas eve dinner here at our house for Cory's side of the family, I am not promising anything!

Merry Christmas eve, eve! Enjoy the images!

More Downtown Senior Portraits

Here are Jessica's!

Kalli and Jess, I love you both so much and I am so proud of the beautiful young women you have become!
Thanks for letting me photograph you time and time again.

Downtown Senior Portraits

You remember Kalli and Jessica, my cousins, from this post in the summer! We did part of their senior portrait sessions at the beach in late June. They wanted the second part to be more urban, so the three of us and Cory as our personal driver and body guard, headed downtown one Saturday afternoon a few weeks ago to finish them up.

I love the way they turned out. Kalli and Jessica are both beautiful, precious girls and they were great models to work with!
Here are Kalli's! Enjoy them, and come back later in the afternoon to see Jessica's!

Christmas Sessions are finished...

I am out of town for the rest of the week, so if you need images from our most recent Christmas sessions go here to my smug mug account. Look under the Children Gallery and then under Christmas Sessions. Go through the pages until you find your child's session!
You should be able to drag and drop the images to your desktop and use them for Christmas cards..etc. I will be getting your disks out next week so don't panic.

Several of you have emailed about having them for Christmas cards so I wanted to let you know how to get them asap!

Thanks for be so patient. Enjoy them!

It's a Girl

We are so excited to share that my precious sister and brother-in-law are having a sweet Sophie Kae. I am honored beyond words to be her name sake. And now we have only a few short months before meeting her.

I stole these photos from Kristin's blog...go here to see her sweet post!

Long time no see! This Thanksgiving was a busy week for us! We visited two families, watched one heck of a football game, found the loveliest Christmas tree, hung crazy lights on our house, gave in on a new surprising tree topper from Hibbetts...
and had a photoshoot downtown with sweet cousins! I'm tired.

I hope you all had as busy and fabulous Holiday week as we did. Enjoy two of my favorites from today's urban, downtown senior portrait photoshoot with Kalli and Jessica.
You remember their summer senior portraits from this post!

Come back for more soon!

Look at Macklin's grumpy old man faces...! I love it. He was so sweet this day a few weeks ago. You should remember him from this post.

Amye and I met at Mount Laurel one cool Sunday afternoon several weeks ago to have a session of Macklin and sweet big brother Jackson. Amye pulled up and got Macklin out...and no Jackson! He had told her right as they were walking out the door that he didn't want to take pictures and she and Macklin could just go without they did. And we had a lovely little hour long session roaming the town streets and letting Macklin do what he does best...look sweet (and little grumpy sometimes)!

Thanks Amye for letting me love on Macklin and document his precious little life. I can't wait to do Christmas pictures, I hope Jackson decides to come this time!

Engagement Session

I did the sweetest engagement session today. I was too excited not to come straight home, edit my favorites and post them.
Kyle, Autumn, and I met at Farm Links Golf course to spend the afternoon swooning the beauty and playing in the leaves...and there was a little photography in there too!

Enjoy these two photos and be watching for more.
And keep your eyes open for their wedding images in June!

I can't wait to finish up the images from this shoot with the Johnsons
and their sweet dog Shelby.

I met Ashleigh when I was in high school. She was the JV Cheerleader Coach and I was a Varsity Cheerleader at Vincent. We spent a lot of time helping the younger team that year and I got to know Ashleigh.

I haven't seen her in years but she works with my mom and knew through her that I did photography.

Ashleigh and I had been in cahoots about getting a date nailed down to do a session when she and her husband found out Shelby had cancer. Ashleigh contacted me and we made and emergency session on Sunday afternoon to make sure we got lots of new photos of Shelby with her family.

I had a lovely afternoon with this precious family and Shelby! Thanks Ashleigh for allowing me to be a part Shelby's life even for one afternoon. I am working hard to finish your session, I know you are anxious to see them.

ps. I'll be sure post more photos as I finish them.

**Update: I couldn't resist updating the post with this image below!
This is Carter, Shelby's brother!

Oh my, Oh my, Oh my

I know what I want for Christmas!!! Anyone agree?
Go here and look and dream!

Thanks Malinda for enlightening my world!

Fall Decor

I love being domestic. Can you tell? I had some extra time today, and since I am so SO ready for Christmas and Christmas decorations I decided I needed to take some sweet pictures of my decor.

This is our kitchen table. Cory hates it here. Every time he sits down to work on the computer he pushes all the way to one side!! Boys just don't understand do they?!

This is the mantel in the kitchen. There is a big, lovely pumpkin on the other side too!

These little set ups are both in the living room area. Cory my sticks are crazy but I love them!

I hope you have had as good of a time decorating your house as I have mine. Now its time to start on the Christmas stuff! be watching for those photos!

We are headed to the mountains for the weekend I'll post lots of images! Enjoy your weekend.

Take a look at this sweet boy!
Grey was one of my most favorite sessions from this years Pumpkin Patch shoots!

Thanks Grey! I can't wait to have another session with you and your mommy really soon!

Ps. to all it may concern...I am trying really really really hard to finish up the rest of your Baker's session this week. I'll be in touch about picking up your cds very soon.

Week 16 Out-takes

If you haven't been reading very long and are wondering about these out-take posts, go here to my sisters blog for the full effect.
They are weekly progressions of Kristin's baby bump throughout the duration of her pregnancy!
Every Monday night we gather in my spare bedroom where I have set up an at-home studio and do a little mini photo-shoot. I edit our favorites and email then to Kristin where she writes her little ditty and posts it. Then once I have time ... I edit and post my favorite out-takes from our shoot!

We hope you are enjoying them as much as we are!

I realize there are only two out-takes this week, I am super tired! I am working so hard to get all of your Baker Farm Sessions done! Don't give up on me yet, I promise they are coming!

(These are more images from Lindsay and Nick's wedding in October)

Weddings, weddings, weddings!
Are you planning one? I am not planning this year, but I am still full of wedding jitters.
I am already booking up for the spring and summer.

If you want me to photograph your might need to hurry!
Please call me or email to check availability and to get pricing information.

I hope your Monday is off to a fabulous start!

Happy Halloween!

Day: Friday night
Time: ?

Conversation: Me "What are we going to be for Halloween?"
Cory "I don't know"
Me "Well its tomorrow"
Cory "Do we have to dress up?"
Me "Yes!!"

This was the way our Friday night went. And since we are clearly procrastinators this is what we decided on...

Pretty good for the last minute right? We were Homecoming King and Queen!

Every year our church does Trunk or Treat for the community and since we are the children church leaders we are always a part of the event. Last year we didn't dress up at all, but what fun is Halloween without costumes? And the kiddos love it when the old folks are all dressed up too! It was hit! And I got one more wear out this bridesmaids dress! $200 and two times worn and now it will collect dust..probably until next year...maybe I'll be a Prom Queen! =)

My sister and her little family came for the festivities as well as my Mother-in-law and Cory's sister and babies! We loved getting to see everyone all dressed and on their best behavior for candy!

Ella loved my fancy dress and crown!

And Skylar and Brayden were a little too distracted by all the potential candy to hang around too long!

We also had time Friday between our usual Friday dinner at the Grill...and the big decision on our costume choice to carve our pumpkin!
Cory did a fabulous job making it extra spooky!

Happy Halloween.

We hope yours was as spectacular and spooky as ours!

Here is one last sweet image from Brandon, Michelle, and Madeline's family session at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens several weeks ago. This is the sweetest family, we always have such a good time at their sessions. And we always do just what Madeline wants to do!
This time it was playing in the roses. Thank you all so much I hope to be seeing you again soon!

I just love this one so much I had to post it.

Michelle if you read this...go find my mom tomorrow! She will have your disk! =)
