Diaper Cake

So I know this has nothing to do with photography, but I had to post this diaper cake I have been working on for my girlfriend Denise. She is the beautiful brunette who is expecting a girl early January. I have done her maternity pictures and designed her baby shower invites so I had to show off this latest addition.

My son Tyler

Tonight we were just playing around outside and I had to share this picture. He just looks so big and handsome. I am so proud of all my boys and each one of them holds a special place in my heart.

Dan and Tracy's Wedding

I had to post these pictures because it was something I did that was completely out of my element. My friend Vince Murdock is a wedding photographer and he asked me to come along and assist him for his friends wedding. I gladly accepted because I love what I do. Although I NEVER plan on becoming a wedding photographer because of how much pressure there is, I absolutely loved assisting. It was a fun few hours and it challenged me to be creative in different ways. So thank you Vince for the opportunity and I look forward to working with you in the future. Congrats to Dan and Tracy as well.

Custom Photo Cards

I am now offering custom Photo Cards. We can create holiday cards, invitations, birth announcements, thank you cards, the list goes on. These cards come in a variety of sizes ie: flat cards, folded cards, 4x5, 5x5, 5x7 etc. They are top of the line press printed products and can be printed on several different types of paper for a different look. They come with plain white envelopes as well which makes it a fabulous new product to offer. They are very reasonably priced and EVERYONE loves them. Here are a few samples of some holiday cards and a few baby shower invitations I designed for Denise.

Denise's Maternity

These pictures are quite special to me as they are of my good friend Denise. She has two boys already Dax who is 9 and Dylan who is 4. They weren't planning on any more children, hence the fact that Joey got a vasectomy 4 years ago. But by some miracle of God she is now expecting her third child and I am thrilled to say it is a GIRL! Everything happens for a reason and it just goes to show you that God has a plan for us even if it's not what we want. Things always have a way of working themselves out for the better. Congrats family. I cant wait to meet her.

Sunday Morning

This morning I spent time with the cutest family I have ever met. Jen, Tim and little Autumn. Jen is pregnant with their second baby, a daughter. She is so tiny it's hard to believe a baby can even fit in her tummy. And little Autumn is such a sweet little girl. She was very cooperative and loved giving her little baby sister hugs. This was the families first time ever having a shoot done so I hope they had fun. I know I did and hopefully I can get some newborn pictures as well to show off. Thanks again for welcoming me into your home for this special time.

Kris and Jessica

Tuesday evening was by far one of the toughest challenges I have faced thus far. Not because of the children, they were adorable and extremly content for 4 month old twins. But because I am a natural light photographer shooting in fourescent lighting posed an incredible hurdle for me. When I left I will be honest, I was pretty down on myself. But I have had a few days to reflect a realized that with each experience I have there will be something I learn and take with me. I realized that life doesnt always turn out as we planned it and sometimes one might have a fussy baby, or a child that refuses to smile or horrible lighting but you do what you can to rise above it all. With that said, I want to thank Jolene for welcoming me into your home and allowing me to use your beautiful children as my guinea pigs for my business. Here are a few pictures from the evening.

Avery and Molly

I spent a wonderful evening with 5 year old twins Avery and Molly and their mother Jenny. They were the cutest little kids ever. They are both little mini versions of mommy and daddy. We did the shoot out at their house in Lake Amador Ranch on a 40 acre spread. I thought it would be a GREAT idea to take the children on a hike and try to make it fun for them. Well, this poor family was following my instruction and just about got bitten by a rattlesnake and then we walked into a pile of fire ants! Needless to say, the hiking days were over and I was feeling horrible. I scared the daylights out of poor Avery. But we did manage to get some beautiful shots in the comforts of their backyard! This family has such a neat and loving bond and it is VERY obvious in the pictures. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with them and I can only hope I have this bond with my children. Thanks again Jenny, Avery and Molly.

My Ryan

I couldnt help myself with this one. He is just so adorable and I had to show it off.

Larson Trio

Monday evening was such a great night for me. I had 3 of the most adorable and energetic kids. Scott who is 8, a little shy at first but a wonderful and cooperative young man. Liz and Zach who are 5 year old twins. Zach is just the cutest little guy ever which is very noticeable in his pictures. You can tell he is full of spunk and yet he is a bit mischievous too. And of course little Lizzy. She is just a beauty and LOVES to be in the spotlight but only when she is ready to be. Such a woman! ha ha. We had such a fun night and the kids all wanted me to come with them for ice cream afterwards too! Mom (Stacey), told me "don't you just love bribes"? Being a mom of 3 myself I had to agree! So here are a few pictures from the evening. Enjoy Larson family. Thanks again for letting me spend the evening with you all.
