Angela {mini}

Meet Angela M. Carter, mother, wife, friend, poet. I recently met Angela at my studio for some headshots for her new book. However when I saw the way her red dress and pearls and lace and dark hair and creamy skin stood out against the dreary room, there was no way I was taking just a headshot. I think I was more ooh-y and ahh-y than ever before behind my camera that evening. That red! Gah! The session was too brief…I’ve already requested a redo. <wink wink>  Stay up to date on Angela’s writings on her Facebook page and her website and be sure to check out her book that’s set to release early 2014!

Amber

It was reeeaally hard to choose only a few shots from this session to share. Can I get a YOW! This lovely lady asked me to do a boudoir session with her as a Christmas gift to her fiancé. Time melted away as we wandered around the house taking photos. The natural light loved this woman and her caramel, smooth skin. Let’s just say…her fiancé loved his gift.

Eliza {mini}

Every time I photograph Eliza, I’m pleasantly surprised by the growth of her personality. On this particular day, Eliza warmed up to me quicker than ever. *yesssss* At the end of our session her mom gave her a plate of chocolate chip cookies for the first time ever! Eliza wasted no time in taking one single bite out of each and returning them neatly to the plate. Ha! Kids do the cutest things!

Amanda

I first met Amanda at The Lady Jane during her First Friday exhibit. I walked in expecting wall art but was pleasantly surprised to see her little floral masterpieces. Arrangements that spruced up used food jars and donned a price tag labeled with a mere $5! The jars were modestly personalized with a ribbon or decorative string and each bouquet had a little birdie, a sparrow. Amanda owns a small floral business called Sparrow’s Floral Design and she has been keeping herself very busy lately. One look at her work and you’ll know why. I was thrilled when she asked me to do a session with her because she “just really needed some headshots” …nothing fancy. But after a few moments with her, the room softened. As the sun stretched it’s evening light, her personality poured out through laughter and all her awesome facial expressions, many of which, I have reserved just for her viewing pleasure. Ha! I really enjoyed my evening with Amanda and I look forward to working with her in the future!

Hughes Family {mini}

When Ashley asked me to do photos of her family for a second time, I was pumped! The first session was last spring and involved massive storm clouds and chickens. Now, here it is fall and her babes have grown so much! We met at the park for a mini-session filled with beautiful sunlight, homemade cookies and a warm blankie for Daddy. Haha! What fun these guys are!bsomeIMG_9856bw bsomeIMG_9855bw bsomeIMG_9859bwbsomeIMG_9874bw bsomeIMG_9861bw bsomeIMG_9866 bsomeIMG_9870 bsomeIMG_9868bw bsomeIMG_9880 bsomeIMG_9885 bsomeIMG_9894bw bsomeIMG_9897bw bsomeIMG_9896bsomeIMG_9899 bsomeIMG_9900 bsomeIMG_9904 bsomeIMG_9922 bsomeIMG_9926 bsomeIMG_9928bwbsomeIMG_9931 bsomeIMG_9934 bsomeIMG_9936 bsomeIMG_9940 bsomeIMG_9942 bsomeIMG_9939 bsomeIMG_9946 bsomeIMG_9961 bsomeIMG_9970 bsomeIMG_9985 bsomeIMG_9988 bsomeIMG_9990bwbsomeIMGz_0012 bsomeIMGz_0007 bsomeIMGz_0008 bsomeIMGz_0018bw bsomeIMGz_0001 bsomeIMGz_0021 bsomeIMGz_0024

The kids took off to play with their Dad so I grabbed Ashley for a few solo shots in the remaining sunlight. What a beauty she is!

Sydney & Alison {mini}

It took all of about five clicks of my shutter for these two sisters to get used to me and my camera. As the session went on, they became more and more comfortable being their silly self in front of me. So many giggles echoing through the branches. What fun it was to watch their unique personalities shine through! bsomeIMG_9395 bsomeIMG_9398 bsomeIMG_9400bw bsomeIMG_9402 bsomeIMG_9404 bsomeIMG_9411 bsomeIMG_9413 bsomeIMG_9415bwbsomeIMG_9419 bsomeIMG_9424 bsomeIMG_9408 bsomeIMG_9426 bsomeIMG_9427bsomeIMG_9435bw bsomeIMG_9436 bsomeIMG_9428 bsomeIMG_9442 bsomeIMG_9446 bsomeIMG_9456bsomeIMG_9459c bsomeIMG_9461bw bsomeIMG_9464 bsomeIMG_9468bw bsomeIMG_9470 bsomeIMG_9471bw bsomeIMG_9466bsomeIMG_9477 bsomeIMG_9490 bsomeIMG_9492 bsomeIMG_9496bw bsomeIMG_9498bw bsomeIMG_9501bw bsomeIMG_9510bw bsomeIMG_9505 bsomeIMG_9507bw bsomeIMG_9512
