Wendy & Joe “E” Session

I met Wendy & Joe yesterday at Centennial Park for thier engagement session.  We had some fun joking around, but we got some really nice shots of them while we were at it.  This first shot was taken in the pavillion where they met a couple years ago:









Can you feel the love?


















Love a little sunflare:


















Wendy, aren’t you glad I didn’t make you wait til Monday?  🙂



Hey Brady!

I met Becky & Brady this week on a beautiful, sunny day.  We hijacked a neighbor’s shady spot and got to work.  Is this guy the cutest or what?!









Here he is sharing one of many smiles with Mommy:









And here he is while Mommy reads him his favorite book (I love this one)…









Thanks so much guys…I had a ton of fun!


Welcome, Cole!

This is my second Cole in the past week…and this was is just as sweet as the first…  You may remember Brittany’s belly from last month, well here is who was living in there:

















He was wide awake when I arrived, and managed to stay that way thru his whole shoot. 

I always thought my kids looked so different from the profile when they were babies…I think the same is true for Cole…here he is clutching mommy’s finger:









Cole and his mom both have identical folds in thier earlobes…too cute:

















Thanks for having me out…warmest congratualtions!


Welcome, Aidan & Nicholas!

The Bakers are good at making babies by twos, and this month, they welcomed their second set of twins, Aidan & Nicholas.  Here is the new four-some:









Look at these tootsies:









And here are the boys together looking oh-so-handsome in blue:

















Congratulations!  You make beautiful babies!



Little Miss Linsday

Lindsay’s mom, Lisa, is in the Catonsville moms circle like so many of my other clients, and this was our first time working together.  Lindsay is a spitting image of her mom…dark eyes, dark, curly hair…just cute as can be.  Here she is in her “I’m tired” pose:









So cute…here she is with Mommy:

















Then we headed outside for a little romp in the grass.  Love the tongue:


















Thanks so much for having me out!  It was great to finally meet you!

Benefit Crop for Jeremy

Jeremy’s mom, Amy, is a Creative Memories consultant, so some of the other consultants on her team have joined forces and are putting on a benefit crop and silent auction.  I will paste in the info below.  Even if you aren’t a scrapbook geek, consider stopping by between 3-5pm for the auction…I will have a portrait package in there, along with bundles from other home-based businesses.  Mark your calendars!  Here is a link to the website for more inforamtion:

It’s with great pleasure that I announce our BIG event for the Morse family on July 12, 2008.  For those of you unfamiliar with Jeremy Morse’s story, I refer you to to read about his condition.  His mother, Amy, is a Catonsville resident and a Creative Memories consultant in my unit. 

 Kudos go to Lisa, Ginger and Jessica for getting the ball rolling on this.  The CM consultants in my unit are SO very excited about this opportunity.  There will be six of us pooling our customer base and also recruiting the assistance of other direct sales consultants from companies such as Longaberger and Tastefully Simple.  Doesn’t that sound fun???Now, we hope that you will help us to spread the word to all of your friends.  This will be a “no-frills” workshop so that we can maximize our donation to Jeremy’s medical fund.  We will provide lunch and your own table, plus 7 hours of uninterrupted work time. 

 For those not interested in scrapbooking, we will be holding two other events that day.  A silent auction will begin at 3pm featuring Creative Memories bundles, along with items donated by other direct sales companies (if you know a consultant for a particular company, and you think they might be willing to make a donation, please let me know and I will contact them!). 


In addition, Kati Thomas, my Unit Leader, will be holding a Custom Framing Workshop.  Bring something to frame and the proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Morse family.  I had something framed by CM last month and it turned out REALLY well.  Entry fee for the 3-5pm events will be only $5, to go directly to Jeremy.

 So, PLEASE tell everyone you know!  And contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you all for your support!

The Aben Kids

We met at Erin’s mom’s place yesterday afternoon, and had fun just playing and catching the kids in playful, fun moments.  I think we got some super stuff!  Here is Sam on the tire swing:

















Here is Jameson with a bumble bee sucker:









And Miss Ella, who wasn’t giving away smiles too freely, but we got some good stuff when she started snuggling with Mommy towards the end:

















And this may be one of my top 10 faves of all times…I just love all the laughing and smiling in this shot…I can hear it when I look at it:


















I just love it!  Thanks for having me out again…it was a blast!


Ernie & Amanda

With a rapidly approaching wedding date in July, we needed to get some engagement shots done for these two.  With such full plates, they decided to come to my place and grab some shots here.  Gotta love that late day light:









Check the bling…


















And I love this one…










Can’t wait til the wedding!


The Smith Family

These guys were my first shoot after my 5 days in Charlotte/Denver.  Ironically enough, they are moving to Denver in three weeks…hopefully they will be one of my next excuses to visit there!

And because of the holiday, Tuesday was definitley feeling a lot like Monday to me, but you know it is going to be a good one when one of your first shots looks like this:










Here is the whole fam…


















We have never gotten a shot of Mom & Dad together…













And the real reason we got together…Hayden is turning ONE!  Hard to believe…it doesn’t seem that long ago that we took his newborn photos…what a cutie he is…and Daddy was a sure-thing when it came to getting smiles:

















Happy Birthday, big guy!  Hope you guys have a smooth, safe move, and hopefully I’ll see you around Lake Norman soon!  🙂
