Earlier this year Elliot bought the girls a trampoline for the backyard. I admit, I was not too thrilled at first. I'm a mom ... I worry. But I must admit, I've been won over. How can I not be, just look at the joy in their faces and smiles. They jump on the trampoline almost every day, except when its rained. I love their silly grins when the jump, the games they've invented, leaps and rolls they do, the way their hair flies all around as they bounce. Pure. Joy.

Back to Tampa

We're going back to Tampa. No, not to live! Just a visit. But its the first visit since we moved away almost 2.5 years ago. I'm so excited to see family and friends!!

Some of you may remember the gorgeous little girl below. She was one of my first portfolio building experiences and this is still one of my all-time favorite shots. And her mom and dad have asked to book a session while I'm down their way. YAY! I can't wait to photograph her and her sister (who is equally gorgeous).

There's a good chance I may have time to do one additional session while I'm in Tampa (the week of October 5th). If you're interested, email me at

If you're thinking about a session for holiday images, don't forget about my Holiday Minis. If you're interested, book soon, spots are filling up and are almost full. Download the Holiday Mini Flyer HERE.

For regular portrait sessions, my October calendar is full and I'm booking into November.

The deadline for ordering holiday cards will be December 1st. Any orders after this date are not guaranteed prior to December 25th.

Any prints ordered after December 10th are not guaranteed prior to December 25th.

Get Your Foot Off My Chair!!

Doesn't the title just say it all? When did they learn how much fun it is to aggravate your sister? And why is it so much fun? Little stinkers.

Mama in the Country

I've only lived in northern Alabama a couple of years, so I haven't had a chance to explore all the little towns around here. This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit a lovely spot out in the country. It felt like it was waaaay out of town, but it was really only an hour's drive. The drive was worth it though ... lovely scenery, up in the hills, and a beautiful mama to work with.

I knew this session would be special, when Dad-to-Be contacted me about surprising her with a maternity session for her birthday. What a thoughtful guy!

The love and affection they have for one another really shines through when you see these two together. This is one my favorites from the session.

The current Baby in the house ...

I love her expression here, another one of my favorites!

When I saw this old, rustic swing ... I knew it would be perfect.

This is going to be one adventurous baby, no doubt! Mama and Daddy love to ride their four wheelers in their off time. I love that she was willing to jump on for a few shots. Look at her smile in this one ... pure joy.

Just One

I'm lazy tonight ... so I have just one image to share. It's from last month. It's one of my favorites of Anna right now because the look, her expression, her smile ... it's just so HER.


P.S. Did you notice I have a little contest going? Don't forget to leave your comment so you can be entered to win a chance at that Starbucks gift card. Coffee ... doesn't that sound good right about now? =)
