Sweet Newborn...Sneak Peek

I had so much fun photographing this sweet little one. Slept most of the time, no fussin', and let me plop her all around! She was the perfect age for all those bendy little newborn shots I just love!

Pics from our trip to CO! Finally!

I've been trying to get everything caught up this week as the next couple of weeks are going to be crazy busy for me! In the process, I realized I never posted any of my pictures from our trip to Colorado a couple of weeks ago. We went out to Pueblo on a Monday evening in hopes of capturing the peak of the fall colors in southern Colorado on Tuesday. But the weather did not cooperate. I got more winter colors than fall! We drove down to Cuchara through a blizzard and decided to not drive up the mountain for fear of getting stuck. I was kind of bummed but was determined to get some shots of the countryside. On the way back we stopped every place we saw a hint of fall! Travis was a great sport about it all and stopped, turned around, went wherever I directed him...we had a great time just being able to talk without having to listen to the kids whine or fight or ask for another movie! What's funny is, we spent most of our time talking about silly things the kids do and how much fun they are. Oh, we talked about other things our plans for this business and the farm, our hopes for a trip this winter, our dreams for the future, how fast 10 years has flown past, how fast the next 10 years is likely to fly...that's what road trips are for! And for without further rambling from me...

Halloween Mini Sneak Peeks

I will run the contest next week but can't wait to show you a few any longer! (BTW, I have a couple people still interested in doing these...if you'd like to have your child's picture taken in right away! I can do a few more if there is interest!!!) I turn 30 this Halloween and just love that my birthday is part of the magic of childhood. For me, Halloween was always about the fun of getting dressed up and going to see all of our neighbors and then getting sick on the candy! And of course, always turning another year older. This year is a little more special...a time for me to look back on what I've accomplished in the first 30 years of my life. I've been blessed with a great family and know that God is not finished with me yet. I'm sure I'll have more thoughts once my birthday is actually here...for now...on with the show!

Sneak Peek...Baby A

I have a ton of other things I should be doing right now but baby pics are too addictive! I have pics from the Halloween minis last Friday...those will go up tomorrow. But...isn't this a great way to start the week? A's mommy and daddy came over after church and we got some great shots. We just had to be patient and wait for Mr. A to fall asleep...then we had about 15 mintues where we could do anything with him! He was a doll and it was so much fun!

Silent Auction to help baby Zoe...

A fellow photographer is holding a silent auction on her blog to help baby Zoe's family. There are some great items up for bid (and a couple of cute outfits that would be awesome in a photo shoot!). Follow the link and help this family if you can...

Cutie Pa Tootie! Sneak Peek!

Sweet little Miss A came by to see us today. She was really into the Cheerios and sticking out her tongue! We did get some really cute shots I'm sure her mom and dad will be proud to hang on their walls. We had fun and hope you'll come back to play soon!! :)

Sneak Peek

I don't think I've ever gone a whole week without updating the blog! I guess I've been busy! Actually, it rained so much here over the weekend that Travis hasn't been able to get in the field for harvest. So, on Monday, we decided we would go see the peak of the fall foliage in SE Colorado. Great idea...except that it snowed the whole time we were there! At any rate, I did take some pics and will share them later in the week. But, for now, I have a sneak peek from the weekend! These kids are so darn cute!!!

Booking up!

Hey everyone! Just want to let you know what my schedule is looking like for fall pictures. I'm starting to get booked up and don't want you to miss out because you thought you had more time to book.

My October weekends are booked. I still have openings for my mini sessions but am expecting those to book quickly. For weekend shoots, all I have left are the mini sessions. I do have a couple of weeknights I will book but those are limited.

I have one weekend left in November. I will not be booking any appointments after Thanksgiving for Christmas pictures. I will keep appointments to a minimum through Decemeber (likely limited to newborns and maternity only). I still have plenty of weeknights in November but will try to keep those to a minimum as well.

Just keep this in mind if you are planning to book but haven't called/emailed yet. The mini sessions will be your best bet for getting family pictures done. Just don't wait til the last minute!!
