Happy New Year

Wednesday, December 26th, 2007

Well, looks like I’m too late to say Merry Christmas, but I hope you had a great one anyway! I’ve had a very busy Holiday season, and I wanted to thank all of you who have welcomed me into your lives to hang out with you and your family. And to take some photos too! I’ve had an exhiliarting experience doing what I love and I hope that the new year brings more of that.

I will be on vacation from now until January 5th, so if you are interested in a session with me, please contact me soon. January dates are filling up rather quickly. I would also like to announce a price increase for 2008 effective April 1st, so book today to lock in those 2007 prices.

Hope you all have a safe and blessed New Year!

If You Give Your Kid a Camera…

Monday, December 3rd, 2007
Ever read those books by Laura Numeroff–”If You Give a Pig a Pancake,” or “a Mouse a Cookie?” The characters ask for more and more and get into so much trouble and mess. It’s the same way if you give your toddler a camera.

We got one of those indestructible kid digital cameras from Fisher Price for my daughter’s 3-year birthday. Of course she loves it. She always wants to mess with my camera and equipment so she was so thrilled to get something of her own. I highly recommend it for those of you who take lots of photos and has a kid who wants to do the same. They really are indestructible if you drop them, and they also withstand countless hours of chewing and drool from the baby. The flash is a little bright, but it’s still pretty cool. Plus, it’s never to early to encourage a young photographer’s eye.

It’s so weird how she gets really creative with it. Seems she’s into shooting abstract, art-type things. I’m so proud! (sniffle.) See for yourself.

Her feet in the car.

Her feet at home.

Love this one…What art! The baby gate. ;)

And my all-time favorite…portrait of big sister in pajamas with lovey blankie by her side. (Those are the 3-year-old’s blankies, not the teenager’s.)

I also recommend the Barbie Baby Photographer doll for girls. Wow! They think of everything. It has so much detail, it’s crazy. A surefire hit from Santa. Now what are you waiting for? Go out and get you one!

Back for More

Monday, December 3rd, 2007
I first met Julia at 9 days old and she was a beauty. Totally alert and almost posing for the camera. It was really uncanny. I came back again at about 8 weeks for more photos and she was huge! And even more beautiful. But the interesting thing is how alert and responsive she is already! I told her Mom that she may be in for it sooner than expected. Ha ha. We’ll see. ;)

It’s amazing how much they change in that short amount of time. So if you’re expecting, let me know. It’s never too early. You blink and they’re grown.
