Halloween Parade!

Here's a slideshow of a few of my Halloween visitors at Studio 3 on Saturday! What a sweet parade!

Happy Halloween from the "boys!"

Rex & Cinnamon wanted to wish all of you a happy {and safe!} Halloween!

Fathers and Daughters... and pugs.

I have boys. Of course I'm protective of them as they grow and experience life. But, I'm not so certain that compares to the feelings a father feels for his daughter. I know I'm making generalizations, but I do think it must be a little different...

For that very reason I'm in love with this image of a father holding his baby girl. I can imagine him protecting her throughout her entire life - with those caring, gentle & strong hands.


Now that I've made myself tear up... for some comic relief. Meet Miss M's "other" protectors...

For the love of it...

You know how dogs love to stick their heads out of a car window and just let the wind throw their ears back? For me, that seems to evoke the simple joy of living... last night - I got to stick MY head out of my car window (don't worry, I'm being figurative).

Along with most photographers in town, I'm in the middle of the Fall Portrait season - and its been busy. Combined with a busy household & sports schedules - I'll admit I feel BUSY. While it doesn't take away from the fun I have when working with clients - I found myself yesterday shooting simply for the love of it. And it was fun.

The stars aligned (schedule, weather & model) and I was able to play with lil' Miss M. Thanks, mama Jenna for bringing her out to play!

Then and Now...

From today's portrait session in the beautiful Botanical Gardens in Birmingham, I was inspired to post these two photographs of Mr. Tom. They are taken one year apart - as he is beautifully held in his strong daddy's colorful arms.

Mr. O's 6-month "Check-up"

I love it when I get to see clients more than once a year! Fun for me, and even better for the parents, as they come away with amazing photographs of their little ones that they will treasure forever. 

Today, Mr. O and big sis, Miss M came on by... and treated me to lots of smiles & fun.

Thanks for the visit!

If you are interested in a "Year in the Life" package (which is great for all ages of kiddos) - drop me a line! I'd love to chat about the options!

Rockin' Max

Playing in the studio last weekend... and I had my trusty light tester with me. How has this boy become so grown-up?

*sigh *
