Don't get much cuter than this...

When this client told me their color outfits, I was excited to get to use this background.  I didn't like this background when I first got it, but it is now one of my favorites!  Their little girl was so cooperative that I was able to use a bunch of props to give them a variety of poses to choose from.  Only problem is they are having a hard time deciding which one they want as a large print! :)  I've included most of them from their session for your viewing pleasure.

Gabby & Alyssia with the Twinkle Light Background

Gabby and her baby sister Alyssia were the first clients to use my new twinkle lights.  This homemade concoction consists of 10 mini-lights strung from my background stand with some lacy material placed in front of it.  At first Gabby wasn't too interested in taking portraits so we gave her a sucker and that seemed to help a bit.  Gabby's personality really shows through in these portraits which is why there was so many cute ones that I couldn't help but include them all here for you to enjoy. :)

Lots of Family Banquet Portraits

Been the busiest ever this year to include photographing for our church's annual Family Banquet.  There were so many that I liked and I can't include all of them here so I narrowed down to include these for your viewing pleasure.

Portraits of our Friends

The Gardners are very good friends of ours.  We go waaaay back!  They wanted inside and outside portraits for their Christmas cards.  We didn't have to go very far for the outside shots as we took them on our front lawn.  Since the scenery didn't have much color, I made the photo black and white.  It will make for a very nice Christmas card!  I've included their favorites from their session for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!

A valuable and treasured investment!

You have until December 14 to take advantage of our Christmas Card Special (details are at  Though your package may only be one or two poses for your special, I will take a few more just to make sure I captured that special look!  So if you want to purchase more prints/poses in addition to your special, you may do so.  That's what has been happening with our clients that purchase our special!  Trust me, I don't do pressure sales!

I will put together a Christmas card that will coordinate with your style and clothing.  Beautiful portraits are such a treasured Christmas gift to give to family members that will last them a lifetime!

Here's how it works...  You book your session by paying with a credit card, check or cash.  I will discuss your clothing options in order to determine what background will enhance your portrait and whether you want to do an inside and/or outside portrait.  You will be able to preview your portraits soon after your session and decide if you want to make any changes to the sample Christmas card.  After placing your order, you should receive your prints within 3-5 business days.

So don't wait until the last minute.  Book your appointment today!

The Christmas Card and Country Portraits

This lovely family drove up from Emporia to get their portraits done.  Wish the weather was not so cold, but we managed to get some nice portraits nonetheless. We alternated the outside shots between the inside shots to maximize the customers time and to avoid the "red nose" look!  I just love how they coordinated their outfits! JoDee said she wanted that "country" look for her outside portraits so we took some near the corral and added our horse Ace.  I have a bunch of favorites from this session which I have included for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!
