Easter Sessions

Easter will be here before we know it! Check back soon for specific Easter session info. I will be booking sessions the evening of March 13 and 14th (maybe some on Saturday). If you want to go ahead and get on the list, send me an email and let me know what time would be best for you. By then time will have changed and it will be getting dark later in the evenings! Let's cross our fingers for warm weather by then!

Spelling Sentences...

For those of you who may not know, my full time job, or "real" job as my other photographer friends like to say, is a 3rd grade teacher. Last week, for spelling, my class was working on words that are spelled the same but sound different, for example: wind and wind.

1- wind: The wind is blowing really hard.
2- wind: You must wind up the toy before it will go.

So one night last week my students had to write "super sentences" for homework using their words correctly. Here is my most favorite sentence of the week:

"When it was my Mom's birthday all the adults were drinking wind."

Gotta love kids... :)

Custom Framing

Since I am now offering Custom Framing with my photography pieces, I thought I'd post some info and pictures! Below you will see a collage of 4x6 photos that was custom matted and framed! It's beautiful!

Tons of mats to choose from, in a variety of colors:

Watch Me Grow

I'm now offering a first year plan I'd like to call... "Watch Me Grow".

This plan includes:

  • 4 sessions: Maternity, Newborn, 6 months, 1 year
  • Maternity Session includes two 5x7's
  • Newborn Session includes 25 5x7 Photographic Birth announcements
  • 6 Month Session includes two 5x7's
  • 1 year Session includes a cake smashing and two 5x7's
  • One 8x10, custom designed, collage of 4 favorite photos (one from each session)

All for just $160 ...(over $220 value)

Maternity: If you / mommy-to-be is uncomfortable with maternity sessions you may swap this for a 3 or 9 month session. Maternity shots are best if taken within the 30-36 week range.

Newborn: To capture newborns in all their fresh born glory, it's best to photograph them in the first 2 weeks of life. They have that newborn look- dreamy, and they still mimic being in the mother's cozy womb.

*Notes: All sessions include my time, basic post processing of images, and many final images shown in a online gallery. Shoots will take place in your home or at the location of your choice.

Makes a great baby shower gift!

Baby Mendez

Here are a few pictures from a session back in early December...

I had the opportunity to photograph Baby Joey in the NICU at Wake Med when he was 4 months old. He was making progress and getting ready to be transferred to a hospital closer to home.

Laurel Point Boatworks

Introducing the all new 36' Laurel Point!
Columbia's 1st ever built sportfishing boat!

I had the honor to photograph the boat for its marketing items. It was rather interesting being dropped off on the top of the Albemarle Sound bridge and jumping over into one of the crates to get these shots.

Here are just a few shots from the day...

Interior shots coming soon...

They grow up so fast...

This is another one of my cousins- her name is Haley too. She's only 2 weeks older than my other cousin Hayli (ones on Mom's side ones on Dad's side). Haley is like my little sister. Most people think we are sisters. Here is a picture of her all dolled up for her winter formal she went to a few weekends ago. I helped her get ready and fixed her hair. We shared tons of laughs while getting ready. Love her!

Save the Date!

So, my best friend has found her prince charming and they're getting married in October. I took their engagement pictures on a cold windy day and we had a blast! I was honored she asked me to take her pictures but extremely honored that she asked me to be her Maid of Honor! :) Below you will find some Save the Date cards I have designed for them. Help them pick! Which one is your favorite?
