Fall Maternity shoot

Alexie came all the way up from Maryland to get her pictures taken by me.  A friend of a previous client, she loved the maternity pictures she had seen and wanted some of her own.  With her husband serving in the Navy Alexie came with her mother who was quite helpful I must say.  They were both great to be around and besides a little scare everything went very well!

We went to the train tracks behind my house and got some really good ones there, I also set up the studio in my house so we could keep cool while getting some studio type shots. 

We took a couple shots to honor Alexie's husband!

I set up this cute pink dessert table, I just loved it!

Everything pink!
Outside to the train tracks I really love the way these pictures came out.  It was a little warm out but she was a great sport and got it done!

Maternity shoot tomorrow morning!

I'm super excited for this maternity shoot tomorrow morning.  The lady is having a girl and I thought of this idea to get all pink treats like snowballs, cookies, cotton candy, etc.  I'm going to set up a little table with all the pink treats on it and hopefully get some good shots from it.  I had the idea to decorate some sugar cookies with white icing and then put pink sprinkles and write it pink "it's a girl".  I also had some food spray paint in pink and used that.  As I was cleaning up I see that my whole counter is now pink...
Thank you magic eraser for saving me once again!

p.s.  I threw out the edible pink spray paint and won't be using that again.

Connor's Christening shoot

Yesterday I was asked to take a few shots of Connor for his Christening which was today.
I was pretty nervous to do this shoot because a 5 month old can't sit up on their own yet and I wasn't to sure of the poses I would get.  I went running around to Marshals looking for a little chair that I had seen once before there and luckily at the second Marshals I went to they had a little blue one that I grabbed for $50.

I think I got some great shots!  I walked away happy.
