Wall Galleries

I'm a lover of many things, but beautiful photography and beautiful homes top my list.  I'm drawn like a moth to a flame to older homes, especially those in need of fixing up.  But that's a whole other story for a whole other day!  In addition to loving older homes, I love to beautify or at least think of how I could beautify them a little more.  So that brings me to the topic of this post: wall galleries.  You have all these photos of your gorgeous family, but keep running out of 5x7 frames and tables to put them on.  Why not incorporate your lovely photos on the walls of your home.  Not only are your adorning your home with your favorite people, but you are creating a fabulous conversation piece as well.  Check out these amazing examples of how to do it right:




  
And here is a great blog post from the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP) about wall galleries as well.  If you are interested in a wall gallery, please let me know and I would be thrilled to help find the perfect spot in your home and recommend the perfect photos from your session!

I couldn't wait any longer to share this maternity session!  I love the lighting, the laid back feeling, and best of all the mom!  She is one of the most beautiful pregnant women I've ever seen and looks absolutely fabulous (this is her third pregnancy!).  Enjoy!

The Rupp Family

Early one Saturday morning I had the pleasure of meeting The Rupps.  They way I came about photographing Cameron is very unique and all thanks to a great Uncle!  Back in July Cameron's Uncle contacted me to purchase a session for his nephew's Christening and I couldn't wait to hear from the Rupp family.  So fast forward to January when Cameron was the perfect age for photographs (7 months!) and I finally got to meet this wonderful family.  I had such a great time getting to know Cameron and will not soon forget those big blue eyes!  Thanks again for a fabulous session Rupp family and Cameron's Uncle for the great gift idea!!  Enjoy!

Checkin' In

Hello out there!  I profusely apologize for my extended absence on my blog.  I have many excuses, some good some bad, but many nonetheless!  2011 has, without a doubt, been one of the most influential years of my life so far...and it's only February.  I've had personal strife when my Dad lost his battle with Leukemia early in the year, personal growth when I learned (and will continue to learn) to cope and function without him, spirtual growth when I finally understood the true meaning of someone else being in control of our destinies, (re)learned all about time management with the many sessions and weddings I've been blessed with this year, and, finally and most importantly, thankfulness for the friends and family in my life who continually support and guide me and my clients who are the most amazing, trusting, genuine, and interesting people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

My photography has, without a doubt, been a constant in my life that continues to bring me so much happiness and fulfillment.  I have a coffee mug that says "Do what you love.  Love what you do."  That couldn't be more true!  If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life!  After each session I am so excited to import the files on my computer and share with the family their love that I captured, that curious look in their baby's eye, the mischievous grin of their toddler, or the magic of their newborn bundle of joy.   I will be blogging a few of my sessions soon and I cannot wait to share their beautiful lives with the world!
