Hey Look! It's Us!

A bit embarassing, but we had not had a family photo taken since the birth of my, almost 2 years ago! So we caught up with the sweet Aimee Bickers from Pure Expressions Photography to have us a little session. I had a quick minute last night to finally browse the CD, and edited one of my most favorite images of the 3 of us. I thought I'd share it with you all!

P.S. I dressed us using principles from my new "what to wear" guide, and I think we looked great!

These photo necklaces are FANTASTIC, and I cannot tell you how many compliments I receive on mine! Made with sterling silver accents, these are a wonderful way to showcase (and show off!) your little darling(s). I have the following shapes available: oval, square, rectangle, circle and heart.

You can place your order until the 25th of April.
All of my 2008/2009 customers are elligible to order a necklace (yay!).
You are ordering a pendant only, no chain will be included.
They will be presented on a ribbon in a gift box.
Arrangement of the photo and charm will be left to the discretion of the photographer.

Please contact me if you would like to have a multiple charm arrangement (ie, you have 3 children and want individual charms for each).

It's a Girl!

The mystery baby in the belly in this post is a girl!

Sweet little thing was such a good subject! Her big brother did a great job too! Looking forward to seeing them both grow this year, I love photographing clients as they change. :)

Enjoy your tiny sneak peek...more to come I'm sure!

One more...just 'cause

So sweet, I couldn't resist!

Perfectly Said

In general, I think that a lot of people don't understand why people are drawn to custom photography. It's an experience...a total package. Your final prints are something to be truly treasured, and that reflect your family; the personalities, the quirks, those special moments, and those unique things that only you see (like that soft side to your "tough guy").

But why does it have to be so expensive? There is certainly an answer! It is summed up perfectly by a talented "colleague" (I put that term in quotes because I have not met her, nor is she local, but I know her work from forums and photography related groups that I frequent. Her name is Marianne Drenth of Marmalade Photoraphy She wrote a compelling bit to educate her clients (and the rest of the internet!) on why custom photography is just that. You can read it by clicking here.

If you have time, take a gander at her site too! She's got some really fantastic eye candy!
