I had a session today with the "R" family. Dad is stationed in Germany and is home for the holidays! Little "A" didn't want to leave her Mom's side, but we managed to get a few of just her.

Enjoy your preview...I hope to have your gallery up by Sunday.

Reminder

This is just a friendly reminder that scanning my photographs or copying from the web is not allowed, and is also illegal. I realize that some people may not realize that what they are doing is illegal, but for many, they know it is and do it anyway. From here on out, you will receive a copyright notice with your print order. EVERYONE will get a copyright notice...so please do not think that I don't trust you when you see one with your order.

Digital files are available for purchase if you would rather print your photos yourself. I would be happy to recommend a great lab! The bad scans and poor color prints that you may do at home or at a "Wal-Mart" type lab are not a fair representation of my work. Would you trust Wal-Mart to do your job??

I've worked with many clients in getting them what they want so that both parties are happy. Just ask!!

Again, I think that most of my clients are honest people. I just wanted to get my message across to everyone...those who are honest, and those who are not so!

Preview of little "B"

I had a session with "B" a few days ago. She had the cutest little red Christmas Dress! She did really great. Most kids her age will shed a few tears at somepoint during the session, but not her!! Enjoy your preview...sorry it is a bit late.





Previews

If you are waiting for your gallery or your sneak peak I hope to have them all done today. I have been swamped and got a bit behind. I'm planing on working on it all day today!!

Sneak Peak brother and sister

I had a session today of a brother and sister. Being that she missed her morning nap and our session was right in the middle of big brother's nap time, I think that they did remarkably well!!

Enjoy your preview!

Working on home studio

When we built this house, we had every intention in building a small home studio in the basement like we had in Cedar Rapids. Well, the cost of the house went over budget, and there wasn't any money left=( So, for the past 2 months, I've been setting up and tearing down after every session in our living room. It wasn't that big of a deal...just a pain in the butt!! Well, we got a bid on building the studio space that we couldn't pass up. Of course, the only thing in the basement that will be finished will be the studio, but that's okay!! Maybe we'll finish the rest of the basement next year. I'm so excited for it to be done. I can't believe how fast it is coming along. Framing and drywall are done. I'm hoping that it will be finished in a couple of weeks! I'll post pictures of the process in the next couple of days!

Senior

I did a last minute Senior session for a friend of my brothers. Leave it to a guy to wait one week before pictures are due to decide that he wants Senior pictures taken!! I think that most girls think about and plan their sessions for months before hand! It was to cold to go outside, so we did studio shots. We might go out later in the year when it is warm out!



Preschool picutres

I did a photography fundraiser for my kids preschool a few weeks ago. 30 kids...whew, that was tiring! I think that it went really well. I've gotten many comments that parents were happy with them because they weren't the traditional school pictures. I had a lot of fun doing it, and it was great to be able to give something back to the preschool! Here is just one of the many cuties I had the pleasure of photographing!

Christmas card shoot with my own kids!

I always dread this time of the year. Trying to take my own kids Christmas card pictures! I always end up frustrated, mad and upset. All I need is one good shot and we'll be done...but it usually takes a few days and a lot of crying (from all of us) to get even one good one!!! I think my children have PCS....Photographer's Child Syndrome! It is always so much easier dealing with other peoples kids than your own.


Well, it finally happened...I actually had a good session with my kids!! Now I have the problem of having SO many good ones to choose from. Jordan and Drew were actually fighting about who got to have their picture taken first. It went so well, I thought I'd try to get the family dog, Sidney, into the picture. Let's just say, I don't think I'll try that again...I got more shots of the kids falling off of the dog than them on her!

Here are a few from the shoot...

Impromtu Session

After preschool today, I thought that I'd take my daughter out for a little session while the leaves are still on the trees. Although she wasn't in the mood for picture taking, I still managed to get a few good ones from her! We found a cool place in Bettendorf. I think that we might try the little shopping area in LeClaire tomorrow if the weather holds out!





And this one I took in our backyard...unfortunatly, there will probably be houses back there next summer!

Few gifts are appriciated more than portraits...

Gift certificates are a great idea for family, friends, and coworkers. How many times has an envelope been passed around at work when someone is having a baby and everyone asks, "What should we buy?" A gift certificate is a great gift that will last a lifetime.

Gift certificates are available from $50 and up. It may be used towards the sitting fee, portrait packages, or ala carte prints.

Gift certificates will expire 1 year from date of purchase.

Welcome

It's finally here....my new website! I am super excited to have this new site. I think that clients are going to love the password protected online proofing, and in the near future (hopefully) there will be a shopping cart which will make placing orders even easier for everyone! The blog area of the site will have sneak peaks of client sessions, upcoming specials and events, as well as postings on what is going on in the studio and my life in general!
