the january quiet.

I'm getting into the groove of 2009 and am looking forward to a busy spring! I'm anxiously awaiting and excited about my first wedding in March! Since my next session isn't for a few weeks, here's a few shots sitting on my camera. The last one was taken by my future 2nd shooter, Miss Darci!

FYI: I had a cancellation for March 14th, so if you'd like this date, drop me an e-mail!

It's been a long, cold day....but, the weekend is a day away and my beautiful daughter and oh-so-wonderful husband are close by. God is good.

Today's session was the first of 2009 for me -- who better than to start with than a smart and sassy 2 year old with a smile that can light up a room! She's 100% girl and couldn't ask for a better "Grammy" -- thanks Kathy for having me into your beautiful home! Here's a preview from today..


National Delurking Week!

Did you know this week is "National Delurking Week" in the online world? Yeah, me neither! It sounds like fun to me, so humor this cold and weary photographer. Delurk, come out of hiding, reveal yourself! Leave me a comment and share one of your favorite memories of 2008!

It isn't hard I promise! :)


Sharing a bit of our christmas..

I'm just now am getting around to going through our Christmas pictures and thought I'd share a few of my favorites. We are so blessed and could not have asked for a better day together with our daughter and extended families.


Looking ahead into 2009.

Here we are only a week out from Christmas and I'm only two sessions away from being booked in March...no time to waste! I will be offering four spring mini-sessions, but they will be for Easter pictures ONLY and cannot be used for family, beach or senior sessions. These are ideal for Mom's that want a few portraits of their children in their Easter 'Duds.

The dates I have open for those are:

April 1st - April 11th, no exceptions! Book now!
