Mommy and Me Minis!

If you mamas are anything like me you spend most of your time behind the camera and not enough time in front of it. Your kiddos need pictures with their mamas! They don’t care if you are 5 lbs overweight or have permanent circles under your eyes from lack of sleep – they think you’re beautiful just the way you are. So this year I am introducing mommy and me minis – come get in some shots with your kids and then get them printed so they will have them to cherish forever. You can bring grandma too if you want a shot with your mommy;)

You will have your proofs back by May 2nd to allow time to print gifts etc. These minis are for mamas and kiddos only – no family pics! If you are interested in family pics there are still a few spring minis left! Email me with questions or if you have a pre-paid mini you’d like to redeem:)

Tutus and Lightpoles :)

A few weeks ago I got to hang out with one of my favorite families – you may remember them from this post. I have seen them quite a few times in between these posts but I am terrible at keeping up this poor blog:P










graces . . .

1. Ellie will be well dressed thanks to some awesome hand me downs from the beauties in this post <3
2. Clients turned friends – thankful to have a few of them:)
