Ummm… soo… remember that time I used to blog?

Yeah. Me too.

I’ve put photography on the back burner for about a year now. Last time I posted I was roughly four months pregnant with my second daughter. Remember how pregnancies are supposed to last nine months? Well, little Sydney decided she only wanted to bake in the oven for six. No worries–she’s absolutely fine and chunky and wonderful now. But the two months leading up to her birth were INSANE and then the three months after she was born she was in the NICU, so that was… well… ALSO INSANE. August 1st rolled around, and we got to take our girlie pie home. I consider the next month or two my maternity leave–you know, adjusting to having two kids at home, and all the sleep deprivation…

THEN–we put an offer on a shortsale in mid-September.

Cue the waiting…. and waiting… and waiting…

Finally on February 29th we closed that deal. Then came the beginnings of the updates on the main floor. Then came the moving in… with updates still unfinished. That brings us to today. Most of the boxes are unpacked, and the updates are STILL not finished. Although they are ALMOST done. We just need trim around the doors, new doors hung, baseboards, and a backsplash. Oh, and I guess I should paint the cabinet doors too. 🙂

Whew! That was more than a little long-winded. MY BAD. But hey. Life happens.

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been really itching to get my photo blog updated. There are so many AWESOME sessions that I never got around to putting up here before my life got crazy!

Here’s Mackenzie’s senior session, for example. How GORGEOUS is she!?!?

Psst! Inside joke with her boyfriend (now husband!) See how LONG it's been since I posted!? SHOOT DANG!

Senior 2010 :: Peter

Peter called me as I was making final preparations for my trip to Utah in July. The timing was perfect and I was able to squeeze in a session with him before flying back to Florida! Here are some of my favorites!

Thanks, Peter! Best of luck to you! 🙂

Daxton :: Senior 2010

I cannot believe how fast time flies! Daxton is one of my little bro’s best friends, and they are GRADUATING on FRIDAY! bwuuuuUUUUT!? I was lucky enough to get to take Daxton’s senior pictures, and we had a blast…

I can just envision a graduation announcement with this one… “Watch out, REAL WORLD! Here comes DAXTON!” Oh, how I love it.

Thanks so much for a fun morning!

The Prom

Wow. Taking my brother’s prom group’s pictures really gave me a trip down memory lane. Unlike some people, I loved high school. I’m glad to be happily moved on and where I am today, but I really enjoyed that short period of my life. So seeing all these young’uns with their dates was so much fun.

My goal when I shoot prom pictures is to make the actual picture taking process as fun as possible. I remember waiting in line for dance pictures for multiple hours sometimes, and waiting in line was usually fun, but the actual picture taking–bleh.


So I decided to take a photo booth approach, and it was a huge hit this year, as it was last year. So without further ado… I give you Prom 2010.

(In the actual prints the students received it had “____ High School, Prom 2010”, but for the sake of Privacy, that has been removed from the images…)
