That’s what Stephanie named her sneak peek when she got it and posted it on Facebook. I thought it was a perfect fit. My new favorite family image. I want to capture lots more like these this summer. The rest of her maternity session was just as lovely, with her beautiful daughters just lighting up the images and her tiny little belly and beautiful glow doing the rest.
So we are pretty much live with the new site, new blog and new look – what do you think?! =) I am still working on a few more changes to the blog, studio pics still need to go up at some point and somewhere, and we are still working out some minor glitches here and there – right now everything is best viewed in 1024 x 768 resolution (or preferably higher resolution) in Mozilla FireFox 3.6.16 or later and in IE8 or later with a few minor bumps. But please take a look around and leave me a comment! Check out the Facebook and Twitter sliders on the left, the new work up on the site (including a featured session which I plan to update monthly), and the updated About Me section here on the blog which will tell you a bit more about my approach and my style. I have to send out a huge thanks to Tatiana of Tiny Clicks Photography for the photos of me and pullbacks you see on the site. She’s awesome!! Tatiana - you know what I just realized we didn’t do that day? Get a pic of us together!!! So here’s one of her, in action during the workshop at my studio. =)
Rounding out day three… you might notice things look a little different around here. I’ve overhauled my site, splash page and blog with the help of a talented and creative web designer. It’s been a work in progress over the last couple of months and finally it’s almost done! We are still working out the minor glitches here and there but I’m soooo excited about it! Official announcement coming soon… in the meantime…this is how excited I am about it!
Yeah, that’s me in the air on the beach in Punta Cana this past February. I set James (my husband) up with the 70-200 lens and we got some funny looks and smiles while we were rehearsing the shot. After a few takes we got it and went back to our beach chairs with our drinks. And what do you know… within a few minutes there were families, children, and couples launching themselves as high as they could into the air on the beach and pressing shutters furiously. It was a GREAT site to see. You know why? Because they were all laughing hysterically and having a blast doing it. Yeah that’s me, the trendsetter. LOL
A sneak peek for S & S – the smiliest 1 year old I’ve had to date yet… this is the image that spoke to me first…. love the serious looks! I just can’t help it!
So yeah… pffffftttt to whoever clicked the button and pfffftt to the FB employee who looked at this image and actually thought “yeah, this qualifies as ‘obscene or offensive’”. Moving on…here is the lovely mama-to-be who rightfully deserved to see all the lovely comments her image received =)
It was my honor and privilege to document this beautiful woman’s pregnancy. There is nothing about this session I didn’t love and the images that came out of this session are… Simply. Stunning. It was so nice to meet and work with a woman truly comfortable and happy with her pregnant body. It was so inspiring. Her beauty, both inner and outer, just shone through on these images. I love the drama of the first two, and the organic feel of the last four.
Loved this little newborn peanut! She let me try all sorts of great poses on her. And she was such a beauty (when you see her mama’s pic, you’ll see where she got part of her good looks from!)
