Christmas Card Shoots

So these are 4 of the families I did this Christmas that wanted the Christmas Card deal. How do I get lucky with such great-looking families? I also designed cards for them, but I'll show them next year. Anyway, if you didn't do it this year, this will give you a taste of what you could do next year!

My Brother-in-Law's Fabulous Family

So for Thanksgiving we stayed with Shawn's brother's family. They were so great to us and let us stay probably too long! We had a blast! We even did a family photo shoot. The littlest one, was being a little difficult since it was almost naptime...but we eventually got him to do what we wanted!!

My First REAL Maternity Shoot

I say my first "real" maternity shoot, cuz it kinda was! I tried about 5 years ago when my friend and I were pregnant for the 1st time and wanted prego pics...didn't turn out so good. But I think these did! I took these on our Thanksgiving vacation. Katie's a childhood friend and was kind enough to let me try stuff out on her! Luckily, she had lots of ideas too! It was a lot of fun!! We originally wanted to shoot outdooors, but it was raining so we switched last minute to do them indoor at her house. Lighting was bad, but we still got some good ones. And can I just add that she does NOT look 8 months pregnant!! She looks so good! Katie, you're beautiful!

Christmas Kids Shoots!

The Christmas Season is in full swing as far as I'm concerned!! Whatever happened to Thanksgiving?? I had 2 "just the kids" Christmas shoots last week and they were fun!! They were both such easy shoots and kids that loved the camera!! My friend's son was sick while his 2 sisters smiled away, but he was good to tough it out! I wish we could've got more of him, though.
The other kids were from a childhood friend of mine! That's one of the things I love so much about doing Photography, is that old friends contact me and we get to reminisce! It was so great to see her and how big her kids have gotten!
If you've been thinking about doing Christmas pictures and haven't yet, I've still got a few openings left! So email me and let me know when you want to do one!

Fall Family Fun!!

So we set it up to take pictures the day before Halloween!! She was so great to work with since I have such a CRA-A-A-ZY schedule due to moving! BTW, we're all moved in!! Painting and all is done!! Now we just have to get things more organized and up on the walls!! We just love our new house and the area we're in! Yea!!
Anyway, Melanie's family was so much fun, despite a few meltdowns (one because I didn't bring my 5 year old to play with her 5 year old...I ususally don't bring my kids but I probably should've this once! He was SO sad!!) 4 boys and one baby girl and they are such a CUTE family!! She got Christmas Cards too that I will post when I get them all designed!
Gorgeous girl...
