Now we can add their Simple48 Session to the list since I'm finally sharing. Take a peek at this first moment as a family of FOUR ...

My very first maternity client this year was nice enough to refer her very sweet friend my way. Referrals truly mean the world to me (let's me know I'm doing something right) lol. I was so excited to capture Ashley's little bump. Her and her husband are expecting there very first kiddo in a few months and are so excited. I loved that they brought this beautiful quilt that was there great grandmothers. That quilt gave such amazing color in the darkness of winter.

This little guy is already 6 months. It seems like I just spent these amazing moments with this wonderful family. I'm so grateful they are allowing me to share the entire Birth Story of their wonderful little boy. I met mom almost 5 years ago. She happen to be one of the first vets I saw for my new kitten and I have stuck with her ever since. She also handled me crying about my cat several times, so she was stuck with me. Take a peek at one of the last birth sessions I got to capture for 2014 ....

(come back next week for there special Simple48 & Lifestyle Newborn Sessions).

Liz has been a fun interacting facebook fan for awhile so it was such a great feeling when she booked her Maternity Session back in November. lol. I had so much fun getting to know her and planning her session. We wound up changing locations day of and I'm glad we did because their session turned out so pretty ... and you couldn't even tell she was freezing. I cannot wait to meet that sweet little baby girl in a few months ....

 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.
