Since my next post is title Worldess Wednesday, I am putting my WORDS out her now. I posting an image of a baby. I know his mommy and grandmother would recognize this image, but I want to make a game out of Wordless Wednesday. So here's the Rules:
- If you recognize the baby, tell me who he is or who you think he is. I have photographed him before and his photos have appeared on here two times before this one.
- The first person to recognize him, first name only, will receive a FREE PORTRAIT SESSION AND A FREE 11X14 HEIRLOOM PORTRAIT at my next promotion. [Details coming real soon to a blog near you...okay, this blog!]
- Even if you do not recognize him, leave a comment anyway. There will two winners for this Wordless Wednesday Game. I will randomly draw a winner's name to receive FREE SESSION FEE AND PACKAGE E [two-5x7 of the pose] for the next promotion.
- Winners will announced should be annouced Monday or Tuesday.
Of course, the mommy or grandmother of this baby who will be featured in this new little game called WORDLESS WEDNESDAY GAME cannot be the winner of the first price (free session and 11x14 Heirloom Portrait), but she can still have chance for the random drawing.
SO IF YOU WANT A CHANCE TO WIN A FREE PORTRAITS, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT!
P.S.: MYSTERY BABY MOMMA, PLEASE DON'T TELL ANYONE WHO HE IS!

a collage of assorted images that were captured during the session...
When I was editing these images, I thought this one looked like he just threw a pitch. Then I realized it was his left hand. You know how coaches love those lefthanded pitchers!

Isn't he just adorable? I love they kick their feet in the air.

I love images of babies (toddlers too) holding their feet.
With a little time and little playing with me, she warmed up and began to have fun.
smelling the flower...
Isn't she so cute sticking her tongue out at us?
These images make me laugh!
I love her expression in this one. Isn't she adorable?
I love her little plump cheeks...I could just pinch them.
Only one more session and I will be caught up on editting. I have other work and orders to finish. I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel...and I recently read this quote: "and this time it isn't a train!" At least I hope it isn't!

These are two of my favs from a little mini session that I had with my little sweetheart yesterday afternoon. It was such a pretty weekend. It was nice to spend it with family and I so enjoy photographing images of my beautiful little sweetheart, Natalie.

The baseball storyboard along with other "boy" images.
In efforts to keep more new posts, I hope to continue to make posts like this one called FLASHBACK FRIDAY.

Casey purchased a beautiful dress and hires Jami as a wedding a photographer almost a year in advance. [By the way, great planning, Casey.] So first their engagement session was photographed...this gave Jami a chance to meet the bride and groom in person. She had already met Casey's mom and had talked to Casey over the phone.
[This is when I became an intricate part of this family's lives. I captured beautiful engagement photographs in spite of the wet grass due to the dew. I wanted to post one here, but not bad enough to dig through my back up files...so use your imagination.]
[I did learn during the first session that Charlie was a great guy and very lucky groom. He had Casey didn't he? This is when I really began to bond with this family. We did have some really nice images from this session photographed at Rosalie before the wedding. If I run across them in the near future, I will post them then.] Okay...back to the story:
Casey needed a beautiful bridal portrait to surprise her groom, to display at the reception, for the newspaper, but above all as an heirloom to cherish forever! So back to Rosalie during Spring Break while the Azaleas were blooming....what perfect timing to create such an HEIRLOOM!
The day had come for the bride and groom to pull all the wedding plans together to celebrate this special day with family and friends. [To me, that's what the wedding is...the day of celebrating and sharing your love with all the others that you love!]
[Do you look at the these images and wonder how we captured so many nice images of the bride and groom? You know, after the wedding, it is always so hectic trying to take pictures, cut the cake, the first dance, throw the bouquet and before you know it..it's time to leave. Here's how I did it and the only way I would photograph a wedding if I were to start doing them again. The Bride and Groom actually see each other before the wedding. Yes...that's what I just said (i mean typed) they SEE each other. It's all set up where they see each other for the first time in their wedding attire. I've done it different ways according to the particular wedding arrangements, but it is a very special moment. I've been told it takes the edge off of them being so nervous when it comes time to walk down the aisle. I just know as a photographer...it is best in so many ways. But here are just three examples: 1)You have more time to create beautiful bride and groom poses (the old way you usually only get a few shots because by the time you finish all the others, you don't have much time left for the main characters of the show). 2) As soon as the wedding is over it's time for the celebration (the party, a.k.a., the reception). 3) You look great in your wedding portraits because your clothes are still fresh and so is your make-up before you've cried and kissed a dozen friends and family. The list goes on...okay, enough of the soap box...back to the story.]
Let's get Hitched!
The Holiday Season of 2007 this family was expecting a Miracle.
Due to some unforeseen complications, Little Miss Avery Grace could not wait until her delivery date to get here.
And Baby Makes Three:
Charlie makes a great a dad!
And could Little Miss Avery Grace be any luckier than to be born to a mom like Casey!
[After months of reading Casey's mom's updates and continual requests for prayers for this sweet, sweet little girl and about a month after she came home from the hospital, I finally meet Avery! Isn't she precious?]
Approximately 11 months after Little Miss Avery was expected to arrive, I photograph her one-year portraits here in my studio. She looks like a typical one-year old!
My a year flies by so fast!

As you might suspect these images are from the 2nd half of Little Miss Avery's One-Year Portrait Session/Birthday Cake Session!
She wasn't in the greatest of moods for her session. I think she didn't finish her morning nap...so could you blame her for being just a little cranky. A girl's gotta have her sleep!
But when we got the cake out...she dug in...still not all smiles, but totally enjoying her cake!
She wasn't paying attention to me (photographer) or anyone else by this time. She loved this cake. It wasn't her first time to have cake....often the first time an almost one-year old has cake for the first time it is here...during their birthday cake session. Because of schedules and illnesses, Avery's party came first. So she knew she liked cake!
Collages and storyboards are a great way to display the images from a birthday cake session. This is one of the collages that I made with some of Avery's images.
