On Spring Break with my family:)

Hello everyone... just wanted to give you a heads up that I am currently on spring break with my family for a few days. I will be back in the office and will respond to my emails just as soon as I can. Hope you are all having a great week!
Take care... Annie



ONE PHOTO TIP WHILE ON SPRING BREAK...



For crying out loud... get your workout by getting down on their level. While taking pictures with your point and shoot this week try using those bum muscles and squat down to your childs eye view and see what you can capture. You just might be pleasantly surprised!! GO have fun!:)

Little Miss M!

Little miss M was such a pleasure to work with. She had the best dance moves! I think I was gifted with great dancers this week because I had two sessions with 1 1/2 year olds that are destined boogiers!! She is the youngest of 4 adorable children of whom she looks up to so much. When they came running down after school, you could just see the excitement in her when they arrived! She was delighted! Such a sweetheart!! Enjoy your sneak peak!

My sweet pea is 2!

So I have many images from Miss E's bday but this one just really stood out for me. Her auntie made her sweet little cupcake cake and she just LOVED it! It was such a fun day and she looked so precious in her little yellow polka dot dress. We have not bought her many clothes, thanks to all our lovely hand me downs and her lovely aunties who like to make sure she is dressed well, so we decided to buy her a special birthday dress this year! It was soo cute! Don't get me wrong... I love my little boy like nobody's buisness... but to dress a little girl... there is nothign quite like it! :) I will post more from her bday, but this is all I had time for before the kids started climbing the walls!! :)

Woahhh... crazy weather!!!

OH my, the weather today has been so crazy! It has been raining, snowy, sunny, sleeting and hail all in one and it is MARCH!!! I guess March is full of crazy weather patterns, but this one has been the craziest yet! I am so glad I didnt have a shoot today!!! Anyways... thought you might enjoy the crazy wether!

Happy March! Watch out for Specials!

Wow I just cant believe it is that time of year already! The crocuses are starting to bloom and spring is in the air. We have spring forward tomorrow and the time is just flying! Boy... I am ready for spring. This year has been one that has been so full of many emotions. With my father in law passing, it has sure made me realize many new things about the "preciousness" of life and how really temporary it is. We have done a lot of work in helping my mother-in-law downsize her estate to just the things she really needs in life. Watching her go through this has been a challenging and truly amazing process. I have completely admired her strength through all of this. All of us kids have had to kind of work like a to do list, trying to help her accomplish all the tasks at hand when it comes to downsizing a farm, boat business, and many years of many memories. It is painful and freeing at the same time. In all of this though, I have truly learned to try and not take the fragility and preciousness of life and each moment so for granted. I am very thankful that this has been my slow season of my business as we have given this process almost everything we have had. I am so thankful though to my clients who have given me the opportunity to work with them over the past few months as it has given me that energy to move forward. Knowing that I am capturing, documenting such incredible moments in these families lives that can NEVER be taken away from them, is a gift that is soo incredibly healing and feels so good. SO thank you for that.

Now... sorry for spilling my guts right now, but just felt I needed to realease a little today. I have shot some really fun sessions this past week and will post some as sneak peaks shortly. They were so great! I cant wait to share them.

Some other things to think about that are coming up around the corner...

BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MOTHER AND FATHER DAY SPECIALS.... I will be conducting mini-sessions for both days. I will post the details within the week!

Take care and have a wonderful day!! Thank you again for all your support!

Annie:)
