Brianna & Michael

This shoot was so much fun! We started off with the moon! Isn't it adorable? Michael had his newborn photos taken in this same moon and it's so cute to see how much he has grown in a year! 
The second set up I just adore!!! I love cake smashing sessions, they are just too much fun!! 

In the first set up the cloud's were made by us! In the second set up the wood backdrop was custom made by me as well as the cake stand and banner. The beautiful mobile, sparkle number one and bow tie was made by the lovely Laura at Laura-Lee Designs. You can check out her etsy page, she has amazing stuff!

Welcome to the world Riley!


I just adore this little guy! Newborn sessions are just so much fun (I'm kinda baby crazy)! He did so good and I am so excited on how these photos turned out! 

The first set up I went for a natural feel. Like most props this was custom made by me! The background and floor you see was built and stained all by me! It's 6 feet tall and wide on the back and bottom and all wood! It's such a beautiful prop and I am so excited to use it again!
The stump was also my project and I love how it came out! Lastly I made the wooden slice chalk board sign!
I have so much creating props for custom sessions and then seeing how it all comes together! And look how adorable he looks in them! 

For the second set up I did something special for mom & dad! The mom is an engineer and the dad is an accountant. So I decided on a "smarty pants" set up! The backdrop was made by me full of numbers for dad and equations for mom! If you look close enough you will see I made sure his birthday was in the backdrop! I just love how cute he looks with those glasses and bow tie on!! 

I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I enjoy taking them!

Emma is One!

Well it has been forever since I last blogged and I am happy to be back at it! I have done some changes and have made a new blog website! I hope everyone enjoys the new look!

Now about this little cutie! We shoot Emma's mom's maternity photos a while back and I was very excited to take her one year old pictures! She was one of the happiest babies I have ever meet! 

A little side note: The flower backdrop was a custom set up! We made that by hand! It's 6 feet by 6 feet wide and its so beautiful! I am holding mini sessions with this set up! Contact us to get your photos taken with this set up!
