What a little sweetie!  I have some zebra fabric that I had not yet used, and I got to use it during this little angel’s session.  She did a great job, and I loved meeting her and her beautiful mama.  Here is your sneak peek!

I have been running my photography business for almost two years now, but in case you didn’t know, I have been a local business owner for over four years.  I am still operating my first business, Baby Card Expressions.  I offer custom birth announcements, invitations and holiday cards that I design myself from scratch.  I am in the process of creating a few new holiday designs for 2010, and I really wanted to offer some unique items.  I have found a gorgeous die cut card that is sized to fit in a 5×7 envelope.  I just ordered my samples today, and I cannot wait to get my hands on them.  They are just to die for!  I will also be offering a “holiday ornament” card, that is a 5″ circle.  It will be hole punched at the top and can double as an ornament!  So cute!  Here is what I have completed so far.  I love them….

A bit of a personal post this evening… what a great day it was for our family!  We decided last minute to make a little trip to Apple Hill.  Can I just say how much I LOVE Apple Hill?!  If you have not visited, and you are local to the area, all I can say is make a trip!  We visited a grower called “Denver Dan” and picked a whole 4 lbs of beautiful apples.  I just have to say that Denver Dan’s was a little more off the beaten path and not one of the most popular growers.  The owner and his wife were SO so sweet.  They gave each of the kids a peeled, cored apple to munch on… and they gave us a family sampling of FRESH apple juice… nothing like apple juice you buy at the market.  And they even gave us a cobbler and ice cream.  They were the sweetest. most generous people!  So if you visit, stop by their orchard.

AND, if I have any clients who are interested in a photo shoot in the Apple Hill region, please let me know.  I love visiting this place, and I think that a morning, or evening shoot would be SO fun… and beautiful, as you can see below.  Hope you had a great weekend!

It was so great meeting this lovely family.  Mom and dad were so sweet, and their little girl was just adorable!  She had some fussy moments, but she was such a good sport!  She did a great job, and the images are beautiful.  I hope you enjoy your “sneak peek”!

I had such a fun time with little one year old Neveah and her mom.  I must say, she wore me out!  Wow, to have the energy of a toddler.  She was on the GO the whole time.  I did a lot of chasing… and so did mom.  The park that we shot at, had a large grassy hill and she kept wanting to run down the hill… even though she would fall almost every time.  Falling made her laugh and giggle.  She is SO adorable.  And oh that HAIR!  I love it!  Enjoy your “sneak peek”!

I loved seeing this little guy again!  I photographed him at just a week old, a whole year ago and he just had his first birthday this weekend!  I met up with him and his mommy for this session last week.  He is such a cutie, and did a great job for his one year photos.  It was great to catch up with you again, and see Timmy grow!  Enjoy your “sneak peek”… along with an image from his newborn session… ahhh, it goes by so fast…

Oh my goodness, I am just giddy while editing this baby boy’s session.  This little guy was so, so adorable!  I love this age because they are so sweet and happy… and their mommies are their WORLD.  He stared at his mom the whole time, and would not take his eyes off of her.  I think I was smiling during the whole session – ahhhh – I love it!  Big sister was such a sweetie too.  She was so helpful and loved taking care of her adorable baby brother.  Thanks mom and dad for having me, and I hope that you love the “sneak peek” images!

It was so great to meet Miss Sophie and her beautiful mom earlier this week.  She was such a good baby and so sweet during the shoot.  She slept for most of the session and let us change her hair bands several times.  At just nine days old, she was such a great little sport!  Here is your sneak peek!
