Abby traveled from Fayetteville, Arkansas for her maternity session this weekend — talk about dedication! I photographed her wedding almost four years ago, and it was pure joy to see her again. She’s glowing (literally) and rocked her session from the very beginning to the very end. Thank you, Brian, Jacob and Abby — and Congratulations! I can’t wait to meet Miss Rice in April!
MUA – Liberty Edwards (When I read MUA, I always think MWAH! because I’m certain that’s what all my clients want to do to Liberty after they see themselves all dolled up. She always makes my clients feel so beautiful.)
It’s confirmed. I have the best job in the WORLD! Today, I met my newest clients, Julia Marie & Payton Helen. They are the most adorable & sweet newborn baby girls you’ve ever seen. For being just seven days new, they have some pretty big personalities. They were born just a minute apart, on Valentine’s Day. How perfect is that?
Much more to come from this session, but for now — Sweet Dreams, precious girls.
It’s no secret that I have some serious obsession with designing albums for clients. I LOOOOVE albums. I even traveled to Seattle last year to talk with Khara Plicanic on CreativeLive just talk learn more about designing albums. (No! Two years ago now.Must see Khara again soon.) When the photos on your walls stop coordinating with your rooms, you always have an album to go back to. They can be displayed on bookcases, to coffee tables, and even on walls. They may include LOTS of photos or really large photos. They’re versatile, last a lifetime and are very fun to design.
This gorgeous album boasts a grandness like no other. Each mounted page is printed on beautiful linen paper while never skipping a beat across a seamless spine. The colors of the images are eye catching against the pristine white background, leaving all the attention on your favorite images from your session. The covers offer many options, from leather to metallic images, allowing a truly custom touch.
I’m sort of a snob when it comes to products and would never want to offer an inferior product to my clients. All of my products are heirloom quality and this album meets my strict requirements. It really is beautiful — and feels even better in person!
My daughter turned NINE last week and while most people have turned to me and said, “OMGSH! Nine!? When did that happen?” I’ve been rather calm about it. I know this is her last year before she is in the double-digits, but I’m really enjoying this time with her. She is blossoming and it’s so fun to watch. Ice skating lessons, polishing toe nails, even learning fractions has, somewhat strangely, been really nice. I’m not sure I’ll feel this way when she’s 18 and heading off to college. I would love to think I’ll be really excited for her to chase her dreams and go on adventures. The mom part of me is reserved and hopes that maybe she’ll ‘live with me until she’s a grandma’ like she says she wants to right now.
I think I feel this way because I just designed and ordered Katherine Craig’s senior album. She reminds me a little of Julianne, just plus 9 or so years. I’m so happy for Katherine. I’m so excited to see her chase her dreams of going to FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) and travel the world. What an exciting landmark in her life – graduation. I have a feeling it’s only the beginning of something big. I’m so honored to be the one to capture it all for her.
Here’s a glimpse at her Class of 2014 photos, and the Senior Signature Album that is on it’s way.
