Happy 2008!

I'm giving you all a sneak peek into ATWP's fresh new look for the new year!

I'll have the website up in the next week or so. Look forward to fun (and gorgeous!) new products, a fantastic new referral program, and oodles of personality.

I'm excited for this change, as it's much more *me* Part vintage, part shabby chic, and part sophistocation.

Have a safe new year, and I'll see you all next year!

'Tis The Season!

This is my first slideshow attempt, so be gentle! Lots of color here for this b/w gal too. (Who does Christmas in black and white? Ha!)

I had the opportunity to photograph the most amazing preschooler Christmas party! One of the moms had made the most outstanding creations. What fun! Enjoy the sneak peek! :)

Meet the T Family!

I had the chance to photograph the most charming family this weekend! Little C and I had fun playing trains (Thomas of course!), while little miss A bopped around the way a toddler does best! Here are just a few of my favorites...(your formal family shots are great too!) Click on them to see them less squished :)

The G family's peek!

This family was so fun and laid back! I swear I photograph the most gorgeous families! The cute little bugger was not interested in having his picture taken at all, but in the end we got some fantastic shots! Here's a quick peek at a couple of my favorites.

Thank you

Just a note to remind you all that I am booked for the remainder of 2007! I would be more than happy to arrange shoots for 2008. Also, look for some fun changes coming in the new year! Thank you all for sharing your families with me, and letting me create memories for you...I had so much fun this year!

Another recent session...what a little doll! Feeling creative tonight :) Here's a little vintage action too!

What fun!

This family had the coolest place! Animals galore, and loads of room to run and play. I love shoots where the first shot out of my camera literally makes me swoon! A brief tender moment between siblings...perfect!

Hope you enjoy your sneak peek C family!

What a lucky girl I am! I had the opportunity to photograph 5 gorgeous girls this weekend (yup, 5 girls! lucky for dad the dog's a boy!). I can't wait to photograph this bunch when they're a bit older too. You can see their personalities in the images (well, all of the images I have!) and I can't wait to see them emerge!

OK, enough chatting, here's your sneak peek busy momma!

LOVE this sequence

There's a couple more from it, but these are my favorites!

Just a little sneak peek for my other session this weekend. Such a photogenic family!

One a little more traditional...

Peek a Boo!

It's that time again! I got to try the most magical place this weekend for a shoot. It's one of those tucked away places that you wouldn't know was there until you stumbled upon it. Such amazing light!

Here are a couple from the "secret" location! I'll post some more once I get knee deep in the proofing of this session, but I wanted to toss a couple up there to get you excited!

I KNEW this would rock!

A little vintage, a little "rust." (for my photog friends, see pt4p...if you haven't joined, you should!) If you own this behind, this is for you :)

LOVE the way this came out. Just like I had in my mind!

Sneak Peek!

What would a weekend be without a sneak peek! :)

You may remember this cutie from her shoot about 6 months ago. You can see HERE how big she's gotten! I think she had a good time running around today!

Fun in the sun

Grabbed my old camera (a Rebel XT) yesterday to capture the beautiful blue skies and fluffy clouds! Used the "dreaded" kit lens just because it was handy and easy. All taken at ISO 100 varying shutter speeds and focal lengths (17-28mm I think).

Sun flare attempt (darn clouds decided to blow in just at the wrong time!)

Neat plumes agains the blue skies

Puffy clouds and blue blue pretty!

Lil' Teaser!

Just a quick peek for A, D and little M. Had a great time on Saturday! Who doesn't love a good snuggle? What a cute little chunker!

All for me...

Because I can take pictures for my own enjoyment too! :) This fence at my mom's house is so cool. I had a vision in my head for this shot, and it looks pretty close! The only thing that would have made it perfect is turning fall leaves. Maybe in another couple of weeks we'll try again (wink, wink!). And MAYBE it'll be cool enough for a sweater...and jeans! How fall-ish! Go figure!


This one has a special treatment on it. Called a tilt shift (which is a band of selective focus on a special lens) and it also has some texture added to it...makes it kind of look like a painting!

Holiday Deadlines

I know that in the "real" world (ie, not the photography world!) you all will not need to start thinking about the Holidays until after Halloween. However, this is the busiest time for many photographers, and the labs that serve them.

In order to have your order guaranteed by Christmas, your session MUST be completed by the 17th of November, with orders filed by the 30th of November. I have just a handful of sessions left within that timeframe! So if you've been dragging your feet thinking about sessions to give as gifts, drag no more!

One More!

Ok, couldn't resist one more :) Color this time for these cuties.

Had a fun maternity session today! Such a fun and laid back family, it shows in their photos.

Can I just say that I think that I photograph the most stunning children! :)

I guess I am in a color mood here's your sneak peek J, F, C, C, and wee little baby girl!

The girly girl...

Handsome little devil! Look out preschool girls! (he already has a girlfriend ladies!

And the gorgeous momma! :)

oh. my. goodness.

Have you ever seen an image, or collection of images (or I suppose, pair of shoes, or purse!) that just makes you stop, take a breath and say WOW.

This past week was the wedding of weddings in the photography world. I happened to stumble across some images from both of the ladies who shot the wedding of Gary Fong and to say the least, I was captivated. They are simply stunning, moving and inspiring! Almost makes me want to shoot weddings...almost.

But that's not where my heart lies. My passion is for the kiddos and their families. I love producing images that make you say "Oh! THAT is my baby! That is exactly how he is!" I love capturing your love, your joy, your happiness, your sparkle.

So my answer for those who ask me, "Why don't you shoot weddings? You could make so much money?" I have my answer, "because I love what I do".

And that's all that matters.

Shabby Chic!

So the shabby look has spread (like wildfire) to the photography world. It's kind of fun! Not every image calls for vintage-ing, but I love the look of this one. Please let me know if you're interested in the vintage look! :) Click on this one to really see the texturing!

A & J Sneak Peek!

OK, working hard to crank these babies out! Here's 2 from Sunday's session. It was hot, hot, hot! This little guy was a trooper though, even though the adults were all sweaty.

Sneak Peek for S & J!

I'm about halfway through this session, but this image stood out to me and screamed sneak peek! I'll post another tomorrow :)
