Here’s a peek at the mini accordion’s that came in this week.

With three children in this session the evening was full of excitement. Allison, Clay and Maddox are cousins, can you tell? Everyone has pretty blue eyes which matched the color scheme perfectly! Knowing the colors they were planning to wear, I developed a color scheme that would work well for boys and girls. I made a quilt top, (which I’ve decided to call the lily pad quilt), colorful pom-poms, paper fans, fabric bunting, and a bouquet of flowers. Nathan made the tent and bench just for the little ones. I think all the little details enhanced the session to create a whimsical approach to taking family photographs. As some may already know, I prefer spontaneous posing with gentle guidance. I like creating a lovely set in a pretty location and seeing how a child reacts. I would much rather have subjects that are enjoying themselves rather than working against natural inclinations.

Here are a few images from a fun session I did this past week. Many of the props were handmade. More to come!





I love this time of year! The sweet sent of apples on the trees, evenings cool enough to wear sweaters, and brilliant sunflowers drooping their heavy heads. Here are a few images I captured for some canvas prints I’m making.

Remember this lovely family? Their mini accordion albums came in this past week.

Mini accordion albums are an excellent way to show off your family, and they’re just the right size for your purse or pocket. Did you know that they come with two of the photography session investments?
