My Sweet Valentines!

This whole photography thing for me started with my girls. Don't get me wrong, I've always taken photos (8 rolls of film on my honeymoon will attest to that... yes I've been married so long that my photos from the honeymoon and my wedding are on FILM) but I started really getting interested in taking better photos when my girls came along.

Actually, it was because of my girls that I started taking on clients. I got some compliments on my photos of my girls and had people ask if I would do their photos too and it's just grown from there. I'm lucky to have these two little cuties to practice on. They are both pretty cooperative with me when I need to get a few key shots. I couldn't resist photographing them in for Valentine's Day. Now to make a card to send out! (in my spare time!)

Canvas Prints: Available to My Clients

I was lucky to have an opportunity to get a great deal on some canvases so I decided to order 6 of them for my own wall (all from my trip to Ireland) while 3 clients also joined me in this great deal. They all came out fabulous and I am confident that any client that decides to purchase one will be very pleased.

First Shoot of 2010 !

This shoot was actually scheduled 2 days ago and this mom was eager to try me out. I can't wait to work with her again. She is a crafty mom too... she designs adorable hair bows. You can friend her on Facebook (Lylas Lovelies) to find out more. I'm actually hoping to collaborate with her on some photo shoots this spring. She's got a built in model with Miss L... what a salesgirl for the bows! She's a walking advertisement. Her big brother is super cute too. Both had amazingly gorgeous baby blues! Definitely a great way to start out 2010.
