Happy Birthday Avery!

So I know this session is Christmas themed...and this is March, but I chose to share this today because little Avery just celebrated his third birthday! 

I am the worst blog-procrastinator. I always rush to get the pictures edited for my clients because I'm always so excited to share them, send them off, and then neglect my poor blog. Thank you so much for those of you who stick around and check out my recent work! It's definitely my goal this year to blog more consistently and share lots more tips and photography knowledge as well as some behind the scenes fun! Let me know in the comments if there are any subjects you'd like me to cover or questions you'd love an answer to, blog style!

But before you do, take a peak at Avery and Amy's Christmas session! 

Merry Christmas Simms

Dave and Brandie recently moved to Clinton, Iowa from sunny Florida! Though this time of the year is fun and festive and hopefully soon to be covered in a blanket of white, it has to be a little shockingly cold to those from the south. These two were thinking ahead getting portraits done (complete with a Santa hat) in October and in plenty of time to send loved ones in Christmas cards.

All that said, it's not too late to get portraits for the holidays...one more week left to guarantee turnaround before Christmas! 

Send me a message!

Josh & Casey {Sneak Peek}

I met with Josh and Casey at the Arboretum in Clinton, Iowa on a chilly November afternoon, which was absolutely perfect for their photo shoot. These two love birds were so sweet and obviously gorgeous and very happy together! They were married on May 28th of this year and were excited to have a Christmas inspired photo shoot, with great images to choose from for their first Christmas cards as husband and wife. Casey and I discussed several ideas in advance and she brought along some festive props that added meaning and creativity to the photos. Also joining them for a couple shots was fur-baby Astro; He was such a trooper and did great! I won't be blogging many of the most Christmas-y pictures in case they'd like to keep them surprises for their cards. It was a lot of fun doing a themed shoot and I'm excited about how their portraits are turning out!
