Sage being Sage.

It seems like lately every time I look at Sage, she is changing. I am so proud as she is growing into this lovely little lady, but I savor every moment of her "little girliness".
One of her favorite things to do right now is "pretend cook", so we brought
her PBK little kitchen into the studio to capture this stage of her life.
She was cooking up something delish for us to "taste" & it was quite scrumptious!
I have a huge addiction for the clothes she is wearing- so girly, twirly, & textury.
If you love them, too, you need to mark your calendars for October 3
when I will be hosting a Matilda Jane trunk show.
It will be a day full of fun and you are welcome to bring your little girls to try things on &
have their complimentary picture taken.
Please email or call if you are interested in coming.

Fall Specials coming soon!

Aren't they the cutest couple? We had a great time in the studio with them.. even if John Mark did keep trying to sneak some fake smiles in. They are both beautiful inside & out!

Lots of new things going on here at the studio & in the works!
Keep checking back for Fall Specials to be posted soon.
Soooo excited about fall coming up -
the cool, crisp air and colorful leaves!
(hard to imagine on a hot day like today, but I am ready!)

Contest Winners are....

I know, I know.. I am late on announcing the winners!

The adult winner is :

Troy & Laura Tolle - who just welcomed their first little one just 2 days ago.

Hey Libby,
Thought I'd get my comment in since I am in the market for a baby picture :) So far my summer has been blessed with showers, birthing classes, growth (in the midsection) and exciting kicks :) We are looking forward to our new baby any day now (due date 8/20)! Troy and I love your pictures!

Laura Tolle

The child winner is:

Moriah Lowder

My favorite part about going back to school is doing my papers, because I like that part. I like taking pictures too and can't wait until I can get my own camera.

Moriah Lowder
age 5

Congratulations to you both & thank you to everyone who participated.. it was the highlight of my day to come check my comments.

More portraits coming soon..

Underwater. Some Above. Contest.

*click to view photos larger*

My oldest son, Sullivan, saved up and bought a really nice digital camera before the summer started and we had been really wanting to try some underwater portraits, but the underwater housing for the camera is almost as much as the camera, so we hesitated.
Well, we changed our mind the first day of vacation and got on the internet and ordered & rush delivered the underwater housing to our vacation destination.
We had the most fun taking these. We took video and pictures from the time we got it until we left. Needless to say, we had so many to go through so we could pick favorites and these are the ones we picked.
The kids all have one of themselves on their wall in a 24x36 size and they are amazing and they get to fall to sleep thinking about all the good memories we made on our family vacation. I am trying to convince my husband now that if we build a pool this fall/winter, I could start offering underwater portraits in the spring/summer. We will see what happens!

My beautiful friend, Tara, of Weddings With Tara featured one of my newborns,
baby Micah on her blog- so if you would like to check out one
more pose, click on the link below.

4 days old.

Introducing baby Micah.
He was in yesterday for his newborn session and as sweet as can be. He slept and slept and let us get lots of fun poses. Newborns curl up and sleep so good especially when they come in under a week old. Hint, Hint.. if you are thinking about newborn shots- call me as soon as your little one arrives and we will get you in the studio during the first week.
It is a relaxing time for mom (dad does have to work a bit, but not too much).
We have lite hor dourves & take as many breaks as we need.
All of my newborn clients are so glad they have these done- this tiny little newborn phase goes by so fast.

On a side note, I can't believe that my kids go back to school this week! Where has the summer gone? We have been incredibly busy and I have slacked on blogging.
I am vowing to do better. I have had so many people ask when I am going to post our underwater photos-
There I said it and I WILL post my contest (free give·a·way) tomorrow.

Until tomorrow-

Fabulous Family of 6

This fabulous family of 6 was in last week and we had a blast! These 4 little ones were extremely well behaved and were a true pleasure to work with! Their mom and dad
(Charlie & Melissa) are some of the best parents I have met.
I know these pictures are already priceless to them as childhood goes so quickly and their children are only going to be this little for a short time. Capturing little dimpled hands, toothless grins, baby faces is so important because before you know it, they are grown.

Underwater pictures from my vacation.. coming soon(I am sooo behind)
Special give-a-way coming soon, too!
