day fourty eight.

I got to do a photo shoot of an old friend and her little one the other day.  He was so much fun to photograph because he was wayyy a typical boy.  All he wanted to do was play in the mud and ride his bike (which made for some really great shots) but I did get a few sweet ones of him and his mama before he decided to jump in the dirt. Carter’s cheesy smile just kills me every time.  So cute.



day fourty three.

Just a warning, this weekend is the first possibility that I might not be able to post.  I’m going on a fall retreat with my fiance’s youth group, and there’s a chance I might not have good service, therefore no internet, therefore no post.  I’m going to try my hardest though.  As for today, I’m posting early for once, but I’m in a rush because I need to leave for Indianapolis in about, oh, an hour ago.  Whoops.  So today’s picture is just another from the family shoot I did last night..Happy Wednesday all! :)

day thirty three.

Sunday night family game night on a rainy afternoon.  That’s what today was all about.  And after a full night of playing Zombie Dice (of course it’s a real thing), watching some football, and taking a million photos of my sweet niece-dog, I am thoroughly pooped.  But hey, we had a blast and I beat my brother three times by collecting the most zombie brains.

Ahh, family time.



day thirty two.

I’m starting a new photography session, and I was able to use my lovely mom and step dad as my test models for this idea.  As my photography business grows a little bit, I’d like to start a session called “Homebodies” where I capture families in their homes, doing everyday things and spending time together, whether it be baking, playing a game, having a cookout, or simply taking a walk through the neighborhood.  Although I have seen this done by some other photographers, I actually came up with the thought of doing it through a dream I had a few months ago.  I was doing this particular project in the dream, and I kept calling it my “homebody project.”  And voila, I woke up with a plan.  Why Homebodies? Because in my house that’s what we call people who love to be at home.  So thanks to my parents, I’m able to give you guys the first glimpse of, hopefully, a very fun and exciting new side to my business!
