{Sneak Peek} Krystal, Yreka Class of 2011

It's that time of year, when graduations are all around. Whether you've got a preschooler getting ready to head off to kindergarten or a high school senior ready to head out into the big world of adulthood, responsibility & college, it's definitely a special time of year.
I've had the opportunity in the last couple of weeks to work with some very special people. I had an entire class of graduating preschoolers, who will get to view their images on their special graduation day next week. 

I also got to photograph Krystal for an end of the year Senior session. She is gorgeous & we had lots of fun in our little hour. The weahter was cooperating in this crazy weather week (we've seen sun, rain, snow, & wind). I had a difficult time choosing which of her photos to showcase, mostly because I shoot the toddler age & those sessions are very different from the senior sessions, mainly because the seniors take direction & have an attention span longer than an ant.
I'm loving this senior session.

I'm looking for to more senior sessions this summer & fall.  Thank you for being a wonderful model.

Congratulations Class of 2011!!!

{Sneak Peek} Baby "K"

Here comes another late peek. I got to have another little session with Baby K this past week. At our first session, she decided that she didn't want to have photo day, and zonked out, so we rescheduled to give it another go. This time she started out a bit fussy & we weren't too sure it was going to work out again...and then, she fell asleep.

 She let me reposition her hands a couple of times, but she was determined that she was comfortable & only wanted to be in one spot without waking up or fussing, so we have a few of these little sleepy photos with slight variations.

Then she woke up in a much better mood, she was happy & I even got to hear a couple of giggles. So sweet!

 How precious is that smile..gorgeous!

Thank you so much for having me out to photograph your little bundle. See you soon!

{Sneak Peek} The Gocke Tinies

Friday evening I had the opportunity to photograph some of my favorite little people. My friend Heather came out to the house & I was blessed to shoot her sweet (shy and sometimes crazy) tinies.
The session started out the way almost every session with the 3-5 crowd starts...a little quiet & unsure, probably didn't help that I drug them out into a field with rye grass, almost taller then them, but they were complete troopers & got comfortable real quick. After that it was all catch me if you can & shoot on the fly.

This is one of my favorite from their session, so cute, I orginally asked the little Miss to sit on her big brother....but he thought it would be more fun, the opposite way. 
 Thank you so much for allowing me to capture some special moments for you, I look forward to seeing you this week with some proofs. :)

{Monday Minute} Wedding Edition

After months of planning & lots of prep, my cousin is finally married.  It was a gorgeous day, she was a STUNNING bride.  I wasn't the actual even photographer, sort of hard to be in 2 places at once, but here are a few image I did manage to capture on Saturday (Richie got to man the camera for a bit ).

Since I wasn't the photographer, who was so fabulous & wonderful to watch, I didn't take anything except my 50mm lens & the camera body. No flash. No zooms. Just plain & simple.

Happy Monday!!

{Sneak Peek} Lea Family

Last week I got to photograph this beautiful family. Baby K was so sweet and she has uch gorgeous eyes. Here is a little peek at our session. Enjoy.

A tiny smidgen of a smile...
 Even the fur-babies got into the session, they were perfect little posers.
And then Little Miss K decided we were done, she was out like a light. So I'll be seeing them again soon so we can finish up.

Thank you for having me out to photograph your family. I can't wait to see you all again.

For a couple more images be sure to swing by the Facebook Fanpage & view the 2011- Sessions album.

{Sneak Peek} Suter Family

Take a look at this beautiful family, so sweet.  And remember them, because you'll be seeing them at least 4 more times throughout Baby A's first year. I had a great time photographing them & capturing some beautiful images for them.

I'm excited to plan out future sessions, Dad's a firefighter & we've already discussed some big ideas.
Thank you for having me out to photograph your family. I'm looking forward to future sessions & I'll see you on Wednesday for a full look.

{wordy wednesday} Just My Kid & other random images

I have a lens on rental for the rest of this month & I must say that after just 1 day, I am smitten with this thing. It's super sharp, clear, quiet & ohhhh... so lovely!
I can.not. put it down. I think I've taken more images in the last couple of days than I did all of last month. It's gorgeous!


 A quick attempt at a portrait of the rug-rats...not so wall worthy...but totally captures the craziness of our everyday life.
 (no I didn't get an extra kid, our nephew stayed with us last night & was in the field playing hide & seek with our munchkins)

Take advantage of this special occasion & book a session between May 16th & 30th to receive a 5 image disk with your session.*
