This winter is amazingly busy for me, but that's a good thing! I never imagined that I would have grown so much in one year! I have yet to have a free weekend but I am truly enjoying all the people I am getting to meet! Christmas has now come and gone, and I just want to thank all my new and repeat clients for supporting me and my business, and an especially big thanks to my family and friends that have showed so much support throughout this year! Without all of you I would be nowhere, so thank you to everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed the HUGE winter snow storm that blew through for Christmas, causing my family, like many, to cancel a lot of plans. Minus the snow, I had a great Christmas with my family, being snowed in and taking lots of random pictures to pass the time! I did get all caught up which is GREAT because my busy wedding season is about to begin! I also want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! This will probably be my last blog before then, and then its onto more weddings, including trips to Topeka, KS and San Diego, CA. I have some great opportunities with travel coming up and I am so excited! Anyways, onto my sessions!
First up is Ashlynn. She's 18 month and what a doll!!! It took her awhile to break out of her shell but once she did she was she made my job even easier if that's possible! By some form of luck during her session, the mail came and low and behold I got some new pettiskirts in! We were all so excited! So she was the first girl to be in some amazing new skirts that I love so much! Anyways, I had a ton of shots to go through and so many that I loved so it was hard to choose! Onto the images!
Look at that face!!!
My next session was with the Swearingen Family. I really enjoyed getting to meet another new family this year and capture some amazing images for them. I was so happy we had a nice snow fall on the ground, and that they were more then willing to brave the weather for some shots! Their daughter Kallie wanted some images of herself and I was MORE then happy to do that! She had some amazing ideas of what she wanted and her images are some of my favorites! Thanks so much to the Swearingen Family for choosing New World Designs! Enjoy your images!
Next up was an adorable newborn baby boy named Payton! I have worked with the family earlier this fall for family pictures so mom will most likely look familiar! (She was due just weeks after I did their family pictures) Well, Payton is finally here and WOW is he a handsome little guy! I had SOOOO much fun working with mom's ideas for pictures and really enjoyed the creativity she had in mind for her son's pictures! Thanks so much for letting me capture Payton's first weeks in this big world! Enjoy everyday you have with the little guy! Thanks again!
And last up before the holidays was a set of cousins, ALL under the age of 7! They were all so adorable, and all matched! That made it so much cuter! This was one of my few on-location indoor lighting shoots for me and I LOVE that I got to capture the children inside Grandma's house! It was gorgeous! I have worked with the family before, like many, and really love working with kids! I learned that my equipment is quite the entertainment for children as well, and it was too cute watching them parade around the house with my umbrellas while I set up! Once we started, we of course had the challenge of getting four children to look at me at the same time, and smile! Grandma and one of the mothers were on hand to help out, and I greatly appreciated it! They did great, with lots of bribing as kids often need and I got some lovely images! This was one of my favorite sessions I think since I got to photograph children in their elements, and even got lots of hugs and kisses! Thanks to the Kubler & Mausbach Families for choosing NWD! I hope you enjoy the images!
