Little Miss Lovey-Dovey – V's Sneak Peek – San Antonio Newborn Photographer

September 29, 2009 · 12:02 am

I’ve been in San Antonio for nearly 8 months now, and I have to say that photographing newborns has been amazing each and every time, but little Miss V really takes the cake – she was so a doll! Miss Lovey-Dovey is no joke…she was SUCH a good baby. Normally attempting the “newborn” images after about 2 weeks is very difficult as babies tend to wake up and not want to curl or sleep after that time, but V was a trooper and slept like a dream. And even when she was awake, she give me such beautiful eye contact – it’s no wonder her Mommy wanted some open eye shots!

N & T, it was a pleasure photographing V. She was a treat to photograph, and I can’t wait to see you all again.

I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

A was so much fun to photograph – stunning, open to suggestions, and pregnant! An amazing combination, which resulted in some pretty amazing images (if I do say so myself!). We had a bit of fun with these, and really captured some truly beautiful moments. A, I can’t wait to meet your little one soon! Enjoy this sneak peek….

One Year….J's Sneak Peek – San Antonio Baby Child Photographer

September 23, 2009 · 9:11 pm

I have never seen such a willing model out of a one year old – not even my own!! J was an absolute dream to photograph, and his mom L was a great person to talk to. We got some really cute images of J to celebrate his big one year mark – this is just a small sample for you L of the images from your session.

Product Photos – San Antonio Photographer

September 16, 2009 · 1:18 am

Lots of people ask me about products that I offer. While I like to think I have a way with words (I do, right?), the old adage is true – A picture speaks a thousand words.

So here are some seriously mediocre photos of some seriously AWESOME products – but when you have a one year old sitting on your lap, your options are pretty limited.

I do hope you will find these photos and descriptions helpful. If you are curious about pricing, please drop me a note and I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

The first product is a Standout. A mounted print, a standout is a thick lightweight board finished with a black plastic edge and comes ready to display with hanging holes on the backside.

And next is the Gallery Mount. A favorite for nurseries and living rooms, it also makes for a wonderful gift for grandparents as well! An upscale mounting option, a Gallery Mount comes ready to hang, with a beveled finished edge in either black or white. Beautifully crafted onto a hard backing, a Gallery Mount is a timeless way to display your images in style.

And then we have the canvas. Gallery Mounted onto Museum quality paper, then hand stretched onto a wooden frame, it’s a personal favorite of mine. As a matter of fact, you may recognize the models in this example – it’s my own two kiddos.

It's Miss C – 3 months old! – San Antonio Baby Photographer

September 15, 2009 · 11:21 pm

It’s little Miss C, and wouldn’t you know it she is already 3 months old! One of my favorite things about what I do is being able to be a part of a family’s life, a child’s life, for milestones again and again. Miss C is no exception. Not only is she an absolute doll (isn’t she!!) but she has two awesome parents who make me laugh – really, really hard, I might add – and a super cute big brother who loves her to pieces. Miss C wasn’t in the mood to model, but after a bit of “me” time and some cuddles from Mommy (and some goofy faces from Daddy) she was all smiles….B & N, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Something Blue…..K's Maternity Session Sneak Peek – San Antonio Maternity Photographer

September 15, 2009 · 11:01 pm

K is a kindred spirit – a fellow lover of a good black and white photo! She is expecting a baby boy – I am so excited to meet him! K, thanks so much for the great conversation at your session. I’ll see you soon (with a barrage of black and white photos, I’m sure!). I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

A little something different….San Antonio Child Photographer

September 10, 2009 · 12:03 am

It’s rare I get a chance to blog about my own kids here. Why? Because my daughter runs like the wind at the sight of my camera, and my son, a mobile little guy, has better things to do than sit for Mom, and satisfy her need to click away!

My son is about to turn one – in less than a week, as a matter of fact. Hard to believe how fast time has flown! My daughter is about to turn 4….though, with her ‘tude, you would think she is 14. The teenage years are going to be a blast, I can see that already!

Without further adieu (thank you spell check for the correct spelling on that!!) – here’s my inspiration, my loves – my kiddos!
