On the 9th Day of Christmas ... Rachel and Coby

On the 9th day of Christmas...Rachel and Coby (mother and son) show their deep bond, embraced in a loving hug. I adore this moment captured...probably one of my favorites!My beautiful friend Rachel - an awesome mother, amazing person, a super sweet and giving friend, intelligent, athletic and starting to become a rockstar snow boarder! ;) Needless to say, the list goes on and on. Her handsome son, Coby. Super bright, artisitic, funny and loves his momma.Love capturing those fun, silly, great laugh, kind of moments.Coby necessarily wasn't into the whole 'photo session' thing...but I still managed to get some super fun ones. I'm sure this one will make the Holiday card this year. Totally heart this photo!
Thanks again Rachel and Coby...hope you have a wonderful holiday. I'm sure I'll be seeing you all again soon! Cheers!

On the 10th day of Christmas... Katy = Cutie

KATY = CUTIEI had such a fun time being able to capture all of Katy's personality. She one of those kids that, when you point a camera at them...they have that ' CHEESE smile'...not necessarily a sincere one. But, once you start entertaining them, letting them run around, show off...just be kids...their true personality shines! THAT's what I love! Thanks to Katy and her mom for coming out and letting me be able to capture the essence of who you are. Can't wait to do some 'family' shots soon. Happy Holidays!

Davidson Family- holiday mini session

The holiday MINI sessions were an absolute hit and great success this year! Loved them and truly love all the referrals and repeat clients I had. ELEVEN sessions in a two day time frame...simply awesome! I suspect I'll do this again in the spring time too!
For the next 11 days, I will be posting some highlights of each session. Many speak for themself.

Thanks to the Davidson Family for these great shots! Happy Holidays!
Happy, Happy, Happy! Check out these baby blues!

Mud and Chocolate

Last weekend I was a proud participant, and the unofficial/official photographer, of the first annual MUD AND CHOCOLATE run. Put on by the fabulous Nina...who is not only one of my best friends, but an amazing running coach! Nina's love of Chocolate and running, couldn't have come together in a better fashion. The plan, run a 4.5mi or 13.1 mi trail run, in the mud...and at the end...indulge in chocolate...of all kinds. Come on, who can say no to that?! Brilliant!Her wonderful husband, Jon, is such a huge supporter and helped out with all the fun details of the day's events.NRG running and Everyday Athlete...proud sponsors of the event.Before pictures, of all the cute gators...all clean.People came in all sorts of fun gear, ready for the wet weather, and getting muddy.And muddy they were!This gal was such a huge fan, she even had her own t-shirt designed for the event. Love it!Of course, I have to agree with the shirt. I did the race myself, but I knew what was waiting for me at the finish line. All sorts of chocolate!The best piece of chocolate...was the gold chocolate medal that everyone received. Such fun!
Thanks to all the sponsors, fun participants and girls who let me pace off of you! What a fun event! Can't wait for next year's mud and chocolate run!

On my trip to Atlanta, I was able to photograph some fun sessions....and this one came about through the magical world of facebook. A girl that I had gone to highschool with mentioned she loved my photography and if I was in town, would love to hire me. Having just got married (and having lots of photos already) she suggested to her husband to do a session with his siblings, as a present for his family. What a great gift! And what fun it was! Here are some of the cute presents they will be able to share with their family this year. Here's Mia...the cutest little barker! ;)
Thanks to you all for allowing me to photograph you family, and to be able to provide such a fun and memorable gift to your friends and family. Can't wait to share the rest!
