Baby Anabelle's Newborn Shoot


Casey (Anabelle's mommy) is my Baby James' daycare provider!  She was able to care for James for a month or two before she went out on maternity leave. She was bummed that the hospitals no longer take newborn photos and I told her to hop on over to my home studio and get a couple photos taken. I'm so glad she did so I could cuddle her new little addition for an hour!!

Ryan's One!!! (And we celebrated with a Cake Smash Session)

So excited to see a former student with her adorable child. Seriously, could this kid BE any more cute? He is such a happy baby and I'm so proud of the woman that she has become….












Can't wait to watch this kid grow up. Can you say no to those baby blues??

Also, I decided to try my hand at a little photo/video fusion on this cake smash.  He loved it!!

Baby James Album


It is a lot more difficult to keep up with scrapbooking now that I have 2 kids…I kNEW I shouldn't have scrapbooked with the first kid!  lol…

Is that horrid?  It's not that I don't have albums.  I DO!!!  Obviously I love to take photos.  It's just that I don't have time to SCRAPBOOK.  (You know, get out all my stamps, papers, tapes, and glues - print the photos and put them together all cute).

I just love to create these amazing little KISS ALBUMS now.  They are SO professional and clean. I love how they look.

However, I DO need to get to printing some photos, though, 'cause I won this adorable book from Winkink Books on Etsy and it is custom printed for James!  So, I need to get that started soon :)  Once I get that completed, I will take photos and do a blog post on it :)  (Now that it's in writing, I HAVE TO!)

Thank you to Kellene of Bella Lucia Photography for the photos in the last 4 spreads :)


















Back to Video

I can't believe I forgot to share this on the blog!!!!

My dear friend and photographer, Kellene of KellieMae and Bella Lucia Photography wanted me to do a promotional video for her blog so that people could get to know her and her style a little better in a quicker fashion.  She storyboarded a "vision" for me and we FINALLY carved out a weekend that my mom could watch the kids for a couple hours so I could go over to Kellene's house to play with my camera and a couple new pieces of equipment.  We both LOVED the result.  I also snapped a couple photos of her and her fiancĂ© as well during our outdoor shoot when it started to POUR and was about 30 degrees.  She is crazy with her tank top….that's all I'm saying…

Here is the link to her website with the video.  Check out her entire website while you are there and let her know that I sent you!
