Rainy/Snow Day!

This beautiful family braved a rainy winter day for their mini-session!  As you can see, not everyone was happy about it but they stuck it out and we managed to get some cute pix of these kids!  I had fun adding Florabella's free snow texture overlays in Photoshop to bring out the wintery feeling in a few of their photos.  What do you think of the effect?  ;-)

Christmas Card

I can't bring myself to spend a lot of money on Christmas cards.  So usually I design a little something and get 4x6 or 5x7 prints to include with our Christmas letters.  This year I am using a Photoshop template that I downloaded for free from Beauty Divine Designs' facebook page.

It was originally intended to be a Save the Date Card but as you can see, I just made a few modifications (mostly just changing the colors and text) and now its our Christmas card.

If you are interested in a custom Christmas card design for your family pictures please contact me for more information.  Thanks!

Also, I use inexpensive envelopes from Walmart.  If you are printing 4x6 cards you can use these envelopes

Another Sister's Wedding!

This past Friday, I was blessed to capture my sister's intimate courthouse wedding!  What a blessing it was for me to be able to be witness to their union.  For more pictures from this special day check out their facebook album.

The "B" Family

Love this family!  They braved a chilly day for some fun family pix.

  One lil gal was not a fan of the breeze and we had a difficult time getting a smile out of her.  But we went to our local Orange Leaf for some frozen yogurt and she changed her story.  ;-) 
 She was all smiles then!
Thanks for supporting the Nilsen family by purchasing one of their fund raiser certificates!

Had the pleasure of taking photos of my sister, her fiance and their new baby, Aiden!  Such a cute family!  Not that I'm bias or anything!  ;-)

"B" Family

I love this last one because we did the same pose five or six years ago the first time I took their family pictures.  The boys sure looked a lot different then!  Pretty soon they'll be going off to college and their parents will be having an empty nest!  Well, maybe they have a few years to go...  ;-)
