Lately I have shifted my focus a bit and have been able to capture Gods most precious gifts. I have been able to hold in my hands the newest members of mankind. They are so sweet. Keep in mind, the sweetness is a facade many times. I have been peed on, pooped on, spit up on, scratched, sucked and kicked... all by babies younger than 3 weeks old, but you would never know by the photos.
With spring here, there seems to be a new batch of babies to photograph, and I have been so blessed to be chosen to photograph many of these little miracles.
On top of that it is also PCS season and several of my favorite, long-time clients are leaving and came to me one last time to take photos of their children and families.
So, here are some of my most recent shoots. Thank you to all the mommies who have let me cuddle your babies and who have stood back even though I know you often thought "What is that woman doing with my baby?"
Also to the Bessmers, Bigelows and the Camejos - I am going to miss you all so much!

I love taking photos of women who just see themselves as a "mom" and forget that they are a women, and they are beautiful. At the end of the photoshoot I asked Ami to let me take some photos of just her. She looks gorgeous in this photo. I am so glad she is my beautiful friend.

Saturday I went to the Wounded Warrior Cruise, where a friend of mine, Jim Beebe, organized several great automobiles and some wounded warriors to offer a day of fun and cars. I was only going to snap a few photos, but hours later I ended up leaving. I had 6 gigs of photos and a horrible sunburn, but it was a good day. Here are some of the photos from that day.

I haven't taken a class in anything since my first college courses back in 1997, but that is changing now. I have decided that I am not nearly as good as I would like to be when it comes to taking photos and I need all of the help I can get, so I enrolled in a highly accredited photography school. It has been fun, but I am so nervous that I will do poorly that I haven't submitted any assignments yet. The aspects of portrait photography and lighting are very different from what I have been trained in - photojournalism. Anyway, here is one of my assignments where I was supposed to show motion. Also, here are some photos I children I have done recently.

a cropped shot of Lenore
I liked the lightness and color here
Her eyes were so beautiful in this one, and I liked the soft edit.
Jessica's hubby is deployed and so since she is having a little boy, the shoes added to the whole look.
I really like this photo, the flag, the saturation, the softness. A fun photo to play with.

I love this photo. It is just one of those photos that when you click the shutter, you know you have a great one.
A cute picture of the big sister. Just captured that moment.
Mom was just playing with her baby boy. Simple love.
