The time is here! Our 3 day old ducklings and 9 week old bunnies have arrived for our Spring Portrait Sessions.
Can’t wait to see the kids faces when they see how sweet and cuddly our baby animals are.
Duckling sessions are Sunday, March 3rd at Leapin Lizards in Decatur.
Bunny sessions will be held the following week, March 10th at our studio in Decatur.
Call soon! Don’t miss your opportunity for a beautiful Spring Portrait!
You might remember Bella from last year. She is our fluffy white bunny. She will be joined this year by two baby boys, who she is yet to meet. Portrait sessions with the bunnies will be held on March 10th. Here are a few portraits of our kids from last years session.
Here’s a little sneak peak from a session we photographed this past week. I can’t decide which is my favorite shot. I have always wanted to photograph a baby on a guitar. So when Kyle walked in and said he played guitar, we had to get this shot. Can’t wait to see it hanging on his office wall. I also love the first portrait. Oh so precious and fresh!

Holiday set is partially designed at leapin’ Lizards in Decatur.

Here is a new product we have in the studio. Of course, I had to use Madison(my sweet baby girl.)
The Gallery Wrap Storyboard is a collage of photos from one session on a canvas stretcher. It comes in 20×20, 24×24 and 30×30. Its a great way to capture the many faces of a 4 month or an 8 month old. You can also add embellishments, such as the butterflies, the scriptures or the corners. I love the scripture, “For this child I prayed, 1 Samuel 1:27.” It means so much to because we all prayed for Madison. She was a gift from God!
Usually in my personal postings, you will see pictures of my kids….not his time. In March, we went to Vegas for a photography convention. Being that James’ mom lives in Las Vegas, this gave me a great chance to plan a girls trip with two of my best friends, Kirsten and Mirella. I have known these girls for almost 16 years. I met them when I was 17 years old and modeling in Japan. They have been there for me every step of the way since then. They were there when I got married, had my kids and through my career. I love them dearly and are so glad to have friends like these. I had 3 days alone with my girls and one of the days, James met up with us to do a photo shoot, just like the OLD DAYS of modeling in Japan.
Hope you enjoy a view in to our friendship. There are a few pictures of me and James too.
The gentlemen below just had to jump in with his liquor filled guitar!
I love having a photographer as a husband. Thanks James for giving us a chance to goof around in front of the camera and for capturing our friendship for us to remember. You rock baby!
This past Saturday the 13th, we photographed our son’s State Wrestling Championship. Being a photographer and a coach on the same day had it’s challenges. James had to focus on lighting and getting the shot, all the while, he was so nervous for Tristen who was about to compete for 1st place against his toughest competitor, Cole Hunt. James said that his nerves were all the way up in his throat. Cole is a fierce competitor and Tristen hasn’t been able to beat him all year, but we were hoping for an upset. Tristen wrestled hard, but found himself losing yet again to Cole 10-0. It was a great match and we are all happy for Tristen who took 2nd place on the podium. It has been a long year for all of us and we are all sad to see wrestling season end. Tristen has come a long way this year, from being trampled on in his first match ever back in October 2009 to winning 2nd at State. We are so proud of him and I am so proud of the bond that has formed between James and Tristen during this wrestling season.
A special thanks to Team Georgia Wrestling for allowing us to set up a booth to photograph all the participants. Thank you Anthony Flatt, Melody Demonico and Thomas Connell for all the assistance you provided, this would not have been possible without you all. Thanks again Thomas for the best booth location EVER!

This past weekend we celebrated both of my sons birthdays. Asher turned 4 a few weeks ago and Tristen will be 6 next Saturday. Leapin’ Lizards was the spot and Spiderman was the theme. Megan from Mimi’s Murals came out and painted all the kids faces. They had a blast! Thank you to all who celebrated with us! I can’t believe my baby boys are getting so big!
I love it when James captures the true essence of a child. These portraits are exactly who Asher is….
sweet and loving to his animals, a silly goof and a shy little boy. My favorite is him loving his doggy!
