NEW! Maternity special and belated Easter pictures

Happy last weekend of March!! Hopefully the snow leaves with it! It's been a while since I had a special, so I wanted to put up my favorite kind for this month:

MATERNITY SPECIAL
All maternity sessions are FREEwith the purchase of a newborn session!
Sessions must be paid and reserved before April 30th, sessions may be scheduled for anytime this year.

I'm so far behind... I finally got to my Easter pictures :) Of course Lulu was the only one dressed up and the only one who let me get some pics. Can you tell how much I enjoy having a girl after my 2 boys??





I will be back tomorrow with another new family :) After that I reserved a little time off to catch up on my mile long list and clean for my upcoming visit from my in-laws...

Speaking of cleaning, I finally got the OK to get some help cleaning, so I would LOVE for some recommendations please!!!! I'm so excited about this!

Saturday's session and a Happy Birthday to my oldest!

I am finally getting to my sneak peak for my Saturday session, I apologize to the family again!!

I had a blast, it was so nice to meet you all! And mom is a fellow artist, I really love her work...and their house was so beautifully decorated! My favorite was some of the stained glass in the windows, and the paintings of course. Mom also has the most beautiful necklaces, and offered that I could put my pictures on them, you all would love them and they would truely be something you couldn't get anywhere else :)

Here is their youngest, he was so cute with the biggest smile and dimples!! But a typical toddler, fast, busy, and easily tired out! Isn't he sweet here?

(Definitely click on these to make them larger! I've increased the size but the smaller pics don't do them justice)



I was so excited when mom and I talked about waiting for dad's tattoo to be done for a shot with his little guy... love this!



And here is their oldest, she is so adorable! She talked my ear off the whole time...so fun!!



I spotted this wedding dress hanging up, mom uses it for her art inspiration... I thought it would be so sweet for a little dress up! Isn't she stunning??



I am gearing up for Senior picture season!! I don't have all my details, but I am plan to have some reps... limited per school. The reps will get perks not available to anyone else!! Contact me now if you are interested! I will be putting up the details soon and I know the opportunities will be snapped up!

And last but not least...Happy Birthday to Duncan! I can't believe I've been a mom for 8 years now!! I've loved it so much!

Yesterday's adorable toddler :)

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Miss M and her mommy. Little Miss M was all smiles until the camera came out. It was hilarious, camera down...smiles, camera up...serious face! After a little while, she became my best buddy and wanted to climb all over me :) She also likes to sit under her crib. She was so darn cute cute cute!

Such a pretty room:




Played with some textures:



She was quite the dancer, but wouldn't you love to twirl in that pretty dress?





I met with another family today, but I am a little bit behind... my brother is in town, so we had a Wii bowling tournament last night Aidan is so obsessed with this game, he also scores up around 200 and it's so fun watching his victory dances... and watching my grown brother trash-talking a 4 year old.

I met another wonderful family today...so hopefully I will get another sneak peak up soon! But I need to go dig the Easter baskets out of the attic first.

Hope you all have a Happy Easter!

Back to working on proofs :)

Birthday baby and a princess :)

I'm on a color roll... maybe it's because Spring is around the corner. But these were too pretty in color to convert to black and white yet.

You will probably recognize these two from my website at the orchard. Little sister is a St. Patty baby, so I made a trip to their house for a little cake and cute-overload!

Big sis is definitely princess material. And mom made these adorable covers for their chairs:



I'm not sure if this translates to the smaller web version, but this next one was so dreamy once I processed it that I gasped!



And the birthday girl:



Big sister was showing off her room and friends:



Doesn't she look like she belongs in a magazine in the next one? I think this is a new favorite!



Finally, the birthday girl, her crown, and Wixey's cake! Sweetness!



I hope you had a great party! It was so fun to see how much the girls have changed since the fall.

got some great shots before she crashed...

I traveled down to Napolean today and met a wonderful family! They just built a beautiful new home...

check out the big shot on the free throw line! (this is in their basement! it's from an old gym that was being torn down, how cool!)



Isn't she gorgeous?? I usually do a few in B&W, but the color was too pretty! (don't worry, I will do some for your gallery!)



I think mom looks like a model in this one:



Such a beautiful family!

Little Miss A had a really rough night last night. When I got there she was all smiles, but she got really tired really fast.

And finally crashed:



It was so nice to meet you all! And I can't wait to come back out to see the par 3 :)

Expecting something special soon...

I finally had a chance to get a sneak peak ready for the second family from this weekend. They are expecting a new addition before too long... I had a great time with them all, mom and I had so much in common! (and she'll appreciate knowing I stayed up for the whole movie last night! It was Gone Baby, Gone... good movie! Not a feel good movie, but really good!)


I just loved big brother! He is so much like my oldest, they need to get together to draw some comics and put together an animated movie :)


You all know how much I love big windows with my maternity sessions:

Mom is so gorgeous!

Lots of love in store for this new little girl:

Cute cute brother and sister!

I had 2 sessions yesterday in the ugly weather... but it was so worth it to meet these 2 wonderful families! Although I am not sure if the first family still thinks it was worth it, I left their house probably during the worst of the storm and took their mailbox out!! I was so embarrassed!!

Here are some sneak peaks, little J was the cutest little ham:





And little C was adorable and sweet:





I told mom I am going to steal her chair...she did such a great job redoing it: (and isn't he so handsome?)




And such a pretty smile:
I will definitely get my materity family out later today... but I need to head out for some errands...

Did you get an email??

If you didn't get an email from me, sign up at the "sign up for our newsletter" selection on the right side of my blog. And don't forget to sign up for the Emma Louise contest for the month of April! The deadline is March 10.

Is this snow crazy or what? I'm ready for spring! I love in home sessions so much, but it would be so nice to step outside for a little while too.

Toooooo adorable!!

First, I want to say Happy Birthday to my mom!!

I had the 6 month appointment for my first baby plan this morning, I just love this family and this little guy!! I have so many amazing shots, it was hard choose for the blog... But I have not had much time today, so I had to.

Remember my "famous" maternity in front of the window? I get soooo many comments on that silhouette. I've done the maternity, newborn, and now 6 month in the same spot, it will look so good together in a coffee table book at the end of the year:





I love nakey babies:



Mom's request, love it!



And I have adored this room since I first saw it, and she keeps updating! Mom and her 2 best friends actually make these wall hangings and will be selling some soon! I will be first in line and will definitely have a link or info for you all...I do have to say, I think this is my new favorite:
