Newborn Baby Caroline ~7 Days New

I got the pleasure of photographing this precious little girl.  Caroline’s older sister, Claire, was one of the very first newborn babies that I photographed and really where I knew I could make this photographing thing more than just a hobby.  So getting to photograph Caroline was special for me.

Caroline was much smaller than her sister weighing in around 6lbs.  Honestly, one of my smaller babies.  It seems everyone (including myself) have much bigger babies these days.  Caroline and her parents were super easy to work with so that makes my job a bit easier.  Oh and no one got peed on, I think that is a first!

Check out a few shots from our session.

Samsung GC110 Galaxy Digital Camera Review

I got to play with the Samsung GC110 Galaxy Digital Camera!

A friend contacted me to demo this Samsung camera for Verizon so I have been playing around with this camera for a few weeks now and I love it!  It works just like my Samsung phone so I am very familiar with how the operating system works.  I love the large screen and the bright vibrant colors.  The battery on this thing lasts a couple of days (not when using video).  It plugs in just like  your phone would to charge and HELLO it gets Wi-Fi and 4G LTE  so you can share great pictures on social media instantly.

You can also edit pictures on the camera or take pictures in a specific setting to help achieve the look you are going for. You can go fully automated which is not my favorite setting unless outside or you can go fully manual  and choose each setting like ISO, aperature and shutter speed.  You can also select a setting and let the camera figure out the rest or use Samsung S Voice and tell your camera what to do.  Yes you can talk to it and it will do what you say!   You can automatically back your pictures to DropBox which is AWESOME!  So no more plugging in to back up or loosing your pictures if you loose your phone/camera.  I love that feature!   I even downloaded some music to jam to, the speaker isn’t the best but it’s a camera and it did the job.

From a photographers stand point, I like how easy the manual mode is to set and it really works well.  You can set your aperture, ISO, and shutter speed all in one area.  I like that it has a 16 mp.  I like the 23mm wide-angle lens.  It has 4 GB of memory on-board and that is decent and you can add up to 64 GB.  I would love to have this for everyday pictures but not in my studio of course.  I shoot in a RAW format which this doesn’t give that option and I also change out lens’ and this does not have the option either.  So for my professional shooting, I will stick with my other cameras but for EVERYTHING else, I would totally use the Samsung GC110 Galaxy Digital Camera!

Just look at this beautiful family!  One of the greatest group of children I have yet to photograph.  They were all so well behaved!  These are siblings and cousins and their interactions with each other were just beautiful.  I hope that my children and my sisters’ children have as much fun and love for each other as this group.

Thank you to this group and their mothers for being so pleasant to work with.  Here is  a sneak peek from our time together.

3 Month Baby Julia

Baby Julia is so stinking precious.  I just love her dark hair and fat cheeks!  This is our second shoot of a year series and she was not having it on this morning.  Baby Julia was so tired!  See, she was supposed to take her nap on their hour long journey to my studio but she pulled one over on us and stayed awake until the photo shoot.  And then of course wanted her nap when it was time to be photographed.  This age is so tough to predict and when you think you have them figured out they prove you wrong.  So after a quick nap and a snack she was ready to go.  See, us moms are smart too!  It may have taken a bit longer than planned but we got some great shots and I am glad we let sweet Julia rest.  Here are a few from our session.

Matt & Lauren- Engagement Session Crossroads Dist. KCMO

Matt and Lauren are too amazing people.  They are very good friends of mine and I got the pleasure of photographing their engagement.

Matt and Lauren met through friends and have been together for years.  They are finally tying the knot this September (my little girl will be one of the flower girls).  These two people are made for each other and bring out the best in one another.  Lauren is full of spunk and loves fashion and Matt loves his computers, games and “technical” stuff!  I am so glad to see them getting married and can’t wait to see what is in store for them!

Thanks for picking me Matt & Lauren.  I love you guys!



Look at these two looking at each other!  Super cute!

I love how Matt is looking at Lauren here.

One of my favorite images from our session in the Crossroads District in Kansas City MO.

Um… Seriously, I don’t think you can get any cooler than this.  These shades are Matt & Lauren’s signature piece.

Beautiful.  Look at how natural these two are together.  Matt and Lauren you rocked your session and I am so happy I was there to capture it.
