M braved the elements with me as we drove all over town to find out perfect photo shoot spot.  We ran into millions of mosquitos, fell into an irrigation ditch (uhhhh…that would be ME), dodged ant hills galore, and even had to deal with some stinky areas.  🙂  It was so worth it.  We smiled and laughed through the shoot and had a great time.  You really CAN’T not have a great time with M.

Super smiley, talkative, positive, confident, gorgeous.

Not to mention an incredible singer, business owner, music therapist.

Her huge heart shows in every image.  More coming sooooon (I am SO excited to share some MOON shots with you!)  🙂

Have a great rest of your weekend.  ~m

GUESS WHAT my new toy is???!!!


a super cheap-o rinky dink underwater camera. 

it’s JUST PERFECT for me and my little photo experiments shoots with my kiddos. 

we had lots ot fun, but let me tell you…just trying to watch these hooligans in the pool is hard enough, but to take pics of them too was CRAZY! 

I have a little crazy in me, so it ended up being pretty fun.  🙂 

^ I think this last one (of his kicking feet, lobster trunks, and bazillion bubbles) looks totally funky/different. 

I’m off to bed EARLY ( I still won’t tell what time that is!!!).  Have a fun day.  ~m

Aren’t they gorgeous? 

These two models, from a past workshop, show how strong the mother and a baby bond is.  Even with just hand holding, it’s obvious how safe (and loved) baby W feels — even with a bazillion cameras in her face.  Thank you, E for sharing yourself and little W that day.  🙂  You both completely glow!    ~m

I had a marvelous time with little J and M, boy & girl twins, born to mom and dad a mere seven days ago.  They were little gems the whole time.  The babies slept a ton, ate, and got lots of lovin’ from mom, dad, and grandma (whose nickname around there is “The Baby Whisperer”). 

Thank you so much for letting me photograph your darlings!  ***More images coming to the blog next week — can’t wait to show you guys the rest.  🙂 ~m

I love how different this image is.  In the world of photography, images are so often inspired by other images we’ve seen and felt a connection with.  It felt good to just be in the moment and do my own thing.   

I love how her eye looks right through you — my eyes long for the other half, but are also content and a bit intrigued by what I see. 

See more of this shoot here,  here and here

Tonight I went to a photography workshop that revolved around newborn and maternity photography.  LOVED it!  Any time my brain can be filled with photography related tidbits, I’m a happy gal.  And when those tidbits are baby and prego momma related I’m seriously THRILLED!  🙂

Oh, and FL sessions are TOTALLY done.  Wahoo…happy dance!  I’m right on schedule with current clients too.  🙂  Now I just need to do some workshop editing, website updating, and there are also going to be a few blog changes coming up…be on the lookout. 

Have one lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by!!!  ~m

So, according to mom and dad, I got lucky.  This little guy was up LOTS the previous night and tends to fuss quite a bit, so we were absolutely pleased when he started showing us his little tired signs.  

Oh, and WHAT a handsome fella!!!


The schedule for the session was:  Little L ate, had a bath, and slept.  Then slept some more.  Ate and then slept again!!!  Quite the cutie, sleeper, I must say.  🙂  And for being a month old (older than when I typically schedule newborn sessions) he did SUPER!!!  He even showed us a couple smiles.  🙂


^ Mom’s idea was a red towel pic.  LOVE it.  Love his tiny smile even more though.  

This little guy was in his mommy’s belly in [this post].  and I had a super time hanging out with them again…especially with their new addition now. 

I had a GREAT time, you two, and also loved seeing C and R…you four are just loads of fun together.  🙂  Thanks for the great lunch, too.  See you all soon!   ~m

And for those of you wanting FAMILY PROMO news…

The WINNER for the awesomely different photo shoot is.


As a group, they came up with the idea to go fishing together (something they all have a super time doing)…and have lots of great ideas for our little venture.

I think it’s a FAB idea and can’t wait. 

We can schedule this for 6/21. 6/28 or 29th, or anything available in July (check the availability section for dates).  Send me an email tomorrow or in the next couple days with your preference!  Yeah!!!  Congrats and I can’t wait to do this with your family, A.  🙂    ~m
