i'm one! | birthday boy | sneak peek

July 26, 2011

kind of a sneak peek. this little guy is actually my cousin. and he turns 1 today!

i actually got to meet him for the first time- it’s a little bit of a drive to from redding to biggs.

my kids met some new cousins. gotta love it!

he is such a sweet little guy. and very photogenic if i do say so myself. <3

i was there for a short visit but can never pass a photo opportunity if i have my way.

    Thanks Michelle- actually no – that’s just my 105 f/2 prime! You aren’t the first person to who thought I was shooting the macro version though. Sweet! 😀 Shooting flying things takes patience though I tell ya what!

so i lost my first tooth | sneak peek

July 18, 2011

I featured her brother a while back. And I couldn’t NOT feature her too. Fair is fair right?

Losing your first tooth is a big deal and I love that she shared with me!

The toothfairy that visited her, totally needs to finish my house.

Money, a sweet little note…man! Our toothfairy slips a buck under the pillow and steals the tooth. 😛

Thanks Miss Sofia! Next tooth you lose- please leave a little note with your tooth sharing our home address so your fairy can swing by here. 😀

Why Does Custom Photography Cost More?

July 18, 2011

This is a common question. As a savvy consumer myself I like to know what goes into something I pay for, especially when that thing is not cheap. 😉

Here is a wonderful link outlining what we do and what you are paying for.

It’s a misconception that we can charge Walmart or even Sears prices. They mass produce and we do not (actually we can’t).

But this explains better than I can!

    Your kids are so adorable!
    I have all your presets, and still can’t get my photos to look nearly as good as yours – you really know what you are doing!

    Thanks Beth! I will be working on some more befores&afters using my presets soon. I got a little slammed this Summer so I haven’t gotten to start on it as soon as I would have liked. A lot of it is in camera though. My sooc version doesn’t look “too” off from this. 😀
