 Let me tell you about one amazing birth session last July. I met mom "Jessica" like most clients she inquired and we got down to booking a session. Normally I'm able to meet clients ahead of time when they schedule births, however with the crazy birth schedule I had, we were not able to meet until day of delivery. During the months before we became FB friends and I felt like I knew her so well by the time I got to capture this amazing moment. When the delivery day arrived, I walked into the room and was beyond relieved. Jessica and her husband were so relaxed. They already had four kiddos at home so they were official veterans of the mother/baby unit. lol.  This was my first twin birth, so I was nervous and excited. Since mom was delivering them naturally she had to deliver in the OR which I was not allowed to be. We begged an pleaded, but it didnt happen. lol. I shot the delivery process until it was time for delivery ... its a very bizarre feeling sitting in an empty delivery room while your clients are elsewhere. lol. I was happy I was able to be there though .... Dad's face when he walked back in with the first kiddo was beyond priceless and Im so glad I captured that for Jessica. 

Meet Avery & Cassie and take a peek at there beautiful Birth Story.

After the rush of busy season, an amazing workshop, and the christmas/new year busy-ness. I was excited to take a tad break and start planning out my 2015. I wanted my first session of 2015 to be super fun and a little different. After coming across this felt deer mask on etsy I knew I needed to find the perfect little model to make this fun winter session come to life. Meet Rachel, I have gotten to work with her before during Very Merry Minis and she has such a spirit. (plus my son fell in love with her). Look forward to her unique imagination session this year !!!

As always .... take peek into some magic.

Last year (in November), I went way out of my comfort zone and took a photography workshop. This was my first workshop and I'm glad I took one of the best. Barb Uil from Jinky Art is amazing. She is so kind and encouraging. I have met many in this industry and even with the popularity she holds, she is real & down to earth. During our one on one I really was able to get what I needed to go above and beyond what I'm already doing. I am so thankful to her for this. Our workshop took place in Blairsville, Georgia. I took all these new experiences with me and in the end am so glad I did it. I met some wonderful creative woman and it was so great to explore+shoot in the middle of nature. We got to attend many little sessions, however the last one was my most favorite. I dont shoot lifestyle with families all the time (esp. not a family with an awesome bus). It was a great way to end the workshop. Take a peek.

During the holidays blogging seems to be completely non-exsistant unfortunately. However every since I started to really enjoy doing this "in-home tree session" for my son, I started offering them to a couple families at the end of the year. Im sure you have seen this idea everywhere ... and some may get irritated thinking its "their" original idea, i kinda just go with it. The holidays is fun and magical. If I can share my talent with a few friends during this time, that's priceless.

Every year I photograph this awesome family. It's the least I can do after this amazing mom (pictured) literally is a savior during my very merry minis every year. Yes, folks I have one amazing assistant. These images were actually taken in OCTOBER .... yeah I know crazy. lol. With a jam packed month in November I had to squeeze in these when I could. We had so much fun at the tree farm with cookies, milk, and feathers. Take a peek ....

My blog has been neglected since Very Merry Minis started ... however I am proud to say 20 very happy families are photographed (and most have their orders already). YAY !!! I wanted to post this family before more VERY MERRY Madness started. I have so many holly jolly blogs to post ... however I'm taking a day to remember FALL and the "Thankfulness" of it all. I am so thankful for not only this family but the many I have met and seen many times this year. PKP is a small business ... a girl with a camera ... a girl with crazy dreams. If it wasnt for these amazing people believing in my "DREAM" I wouldnt be able to do what I love. It's taken a long time to find my creative path in the this crazy world and I am so glad making others smile is it. Truly ... Thank You. Now that we are past the mush .... this awesome family has been to PKP many times ... so happy I was able to give her one of my favorite galleries yet .... take a peek.

I haven't shared a fun project in awhile since my Pebbles Design Team term ended. It's hard to get crafty for your self when having such amazing things happen with PKP. Looking back I never shared this project !!! Here are some of my favorite "Thankful" Cards that I made last November. Still one of my absolute favorites. 

What are you making for Thanksgiving this year?
