Collage of Christmas Sessions

I usually share pictures from each session, but this year, some of my clients asked me to only share a few of their pictures.  Many of them were planning to use them for Christmas Cards, and wanted their friends and family’s first time seeing their family pics to be when the card arrived in the mail.  So, I picked one or two from each session (many of which my clients have already shared on their own Facebook pages) and made this blog post a little montage of all the sessions from the recent weeks.  

This will be my last blog post for 2013, and I just want to say, boy has it been an awesome year. :)   I have met some wonderful new people through photography, and have had many repeat clients, which is the biggest compliment of all.  THANK YOU to all my clients from 2013, and I am so excited for what 2014 has in store!!  

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Jenny & Lindsay ~ Family Session

I had the most awesome session at Sims Lake Park with Jenny and Lindsay last Sunday.  Jenny is the aunt of sweet Libby featured a couple of weeks back. 

We could not have had a better day for pictures and these two were such a blast to work with.  They are so photogenic they made my job super easy.  :) 

I hope you enjoy their photos.  I couldn’t be happier with them. 





Isn’t Lindsay beautiful?!?114-logoThanks for visiting my blog.  Check Facebook on Thursday for more from Jenny and Lindsay’s session.

Have a great week!

Its that time of year again, when the leaves start to change and the air gets cooler, and my husband drags me kicking and screaming into the great outdoors…. Ok Im kidding, a little. This past weekend it was Sylva, North Carolina.  The hubby found a great, dog friendly cabin for us to spend out two year anniversary, and below are some pics from the hike we did on Day 2.  




This is my 11 year old Chihuahua, Oswald.

Thanks for visiting.  Until next week, all the best, 


Sean Hoey is 1 Year Old!

So you got to see Sean’s paw-some puppy themed birthday party a few weeks ago, but today we have his official 1 year pictures.   It has been such a pleasure to watch this sweet boy grow over the past year in photography.  Sean almost always has a smile on his face :) and seems to be pretty content doing just about whatever his mom and dad suggest.   Not to mention, he is one cute kiddo!

Sean Hoey’s 1st Birthday!

You may remember baby Sean from some previous blogs, but today he is finally a mature one year old.  Sean’s favorite thing in his little boy world is his family’s dog, so… for the BIG first birthday, his mom Stephanie, went with a theme that was sure to please; Doggies, Doggies Everywhere!  

There were puppies to adopt, doggie cupcake toppers, Hot Dogs, Best Friend Water, Pupcorn, and Puppy Chow.  Stephanie did a great job with the decor, even having puppy print decals on the walls.  Plus, I left with a Doggie Bag. :)  

I hope Sean was impressed, because I know I was!
