Tea, anyone?

I had such a fun session with a little 3 year old this past weekend. We decided to do a tea party since she loves to pretend. She loved it and didn't want to stop, even when Mom promised McDonald's! Here's a sneak peek for Mom...sorry it's a little late K! Here are some of my favorites...

Double Sneak Peek

You know when you cram everything into one weekend how it seems to go by like a whirlwind? That's what this weekend was like. Between multiple sessions, wiener roasts, and a birthday party, we didn't know when we were coming or going! I can't believe tomorrow is already Monday, but I'm glad to have a day to rest and hang out with my favorite little person :)

I'm doing 2 different sneak peeks from my last few sessions...so here's the first for O's mom. You know I love you, girl! Enjoy! (H's mom...keep scrolling for yours!)

Don't ya just wanna squeeze him?

Now for H...I did her 2 year portraits in May so you may recognize this cutie. We had a wind advisory today which made it more of a challenge than usual, but we ended up with some fantastic shots regardless!

I've told her mom a dozen times already - you must get this child into modeling! Unbelievably photogenic - and only 2 1/2!

A few of my baby girl, just for fun...I am getting these printed big for her bathroom :)

Funks Grove Sessions

Funks Grove has been a popular request for sessions this fall. I had my first Fall Session out there last weekend, and it really is a gorgeous place. I had to get this sneak peek done because I have a feeling this momma has been hitting "refresh" all morning at work :)

C - this is a huge sneak peek for you! I tried to narrow down my favorites but it was so hard! I should have the rest to you shortly :)

First off, the newest member of the K family!

Big brother is strinkingly handsome!

Big sis was such a ham - it's the age :) I told her to get ALL her giggles out.....

so I could get this:

One last image....I think we wore him out!

More later this week....have a great Monday!

Time for a foot rub...

because being in heels all day does not agree with me! Today was the Mama-Prenuer Bazaar, and it was a huge success! I was amazed at the amount of mommas (and some dads too) that came through the door today. I met so many nice people tonight and loved sharing my business with everyone. Congrats to Misty on winning the FREE session! I had a ton of names in that bag...I wish I could have given everyone a free session, but I know you all snatched up those coupons like crazy :)

To those of you that I didn't get a chance to talk to one-on-one: thank you for stopping by! If you are considering a Spring session, it is imperative that you book starting in Feburary. I book up 2-3 months in advance, so as soon as you have a month in mind, drop me a line. I hope to see lots of you next year!

My husband is next to me on the couch snoring, so time to wake him and get that foot rub!

....and because I can't post without an image :).........
My newest 20x20 design that was on display today....I'm in love!

One more of little Miss G :)

Reminders & Little Miss G

Well, I survived one of the busiest weekends yet! Now only 9 sessions + 1 wedding to go before November 18th! That sounds really crazy when I say it, but if I just take one session at a time it should be doable :) Other photogs told me that fall would be the busiest season, and wow, they weren't kidding! And to think I turned away about 10 others for this fall b/c I just simply can't do it all. I'm sorry to those of you that weren't able to get in - now that you know how quickly things fill up, you'll be sure to book way ahead for next year :)

Before the sneak peek, a few reminders:

*MONDAY, OCTOBER 8TH is the last day to get your Christmas card order in. If I don't receive it tomorrow, well....you're out of luck :) I'll check my email last thing before I head to bed tomorrow nght, so feel free to email me your request up until the last minute. See the sidebar link for all the details.

*WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10TH from 7pm-9:30pm is the Mama Entrepenuer Bazaar! Details were in the latest postcard that was sent out. I will be listing a full description of the event on Tuesday, but basically, you don't want to miss it! All exhibitors are moms that are entrepenuers (how cool is that?)...there will be around 13 different vendors and TONS of giveaways! I will be holding a drawing for a FREE SPRING 08 SESSION (no strings attached!) as well as giving away coupons like it's going out of style. I've only got 50 though, so shop and shop early! Make plans to stop by....again, more details Tuesday!

Ok, on to the sneak peek of this little sweetheart! I know mom and dad are missing her as they're out of state right now, so here's a little heart tugger for ya! :)

"Where's your bellybutton?"

What would a sneak peek be without a close-up in black and white?...I'm so predicatable!

She seriously could not be any cuter!

That's it for now...check back tomorrow!

Something different...

As you know, my favorite (and pretty much only) thing that I photograph is kiddos. That certainly is not changing anytime soon, but I did step outside of my comfort zone last night for an engagement session. The bride to be is a close family/friend of mine, and I've known her since I was 12! So of course I jumped at the chance to shoot their engagement pictures, even though I really had no clue what I was going to do :) Being in the design field herself, she knew she wanted something unique and out-of-the-box. Just the kind of challenges I love! :)

We had a great time traipsing through cornfields and a pumpkin patch...and luckily we didn't get attacked by the giant turkey roaming the property! Oh, the joys of being a country girl!

Here are just a few of my favorites...enjoy your sneak peek you two!

{click on the image to view best please!}

you know i'm a sucker for the details :)

some romance in the cornfields....i just love this!

Fun on the farm :)

I had a session over the weekend at one of the best locations yet! This family lives on a HUGE area of land...gorgeous wooded areas, wheat fields, horses, creeks....you name it! We had a great time exploring different spots, and I got to relive some of my younger days of growing up as a farm girl :) The mom told me that she really just wanted a day in their life to be documented...them doing things that they always do together, but don't have photographs of. THAT is what I am all about and what I truly, truly love! This was such a laid back session because they really were just being themselves, and letting me tag along.

Thanks M & A!

p.s. Blogger has really been messing with my pics so I apologize for the way they look! Definitely doesn't do them justice :(

love this field!

we stopped to skip rocks across the creek for awhile...

one last "pose" for the night...the boys were such good sports!

is he not the cutest thing ever?!

and as usual, i had to get some of just mom and dad...these 2 were cracking me up! are they too cute or what?
