Bye Bye 2013

Last post of the year!  And I chose this session from 2012. The Costco Session.  This is true, real life photo session.  I didn’t tell the kids to do anything.  I just followed them around, with the mothers’ permission, of course!  They didn’t have to smile or even look at me.  Didn’t tell them to lay down on boxes or hold mom’s hand.  They were free to be themselves.  At Costco!  Oh happy day!!

Why take pictures at Costco?  My oldest is almost 23 and youngest is 11, with 2 kids in between.  I took many pictures of birthdays and Christmas over the years.  However, I never took pictures at Costco.  I have spent so many hours there with the kids in tote.  I actually miss the craziness of taking kids there.  Now, I can take as long as I want or go as quickly as I need to.  I go by myself.  Teenagers don’t want to tag along except on rare occasions.

If I could do it all over again, I would take my camera and take pictures of my kids at Costco, or Target or wherever.  Yes, even just my iPhone.  These pictures aren’t award winning.  But they are precious in a mother’s heart.  Time goes by so fast.  Too fast.

Pictures don’t have to be perfect.  They help you remember slices of your life.  So, go. Take pictures of your day to day life.  You don’t need fancy cameras.  Just have fun.DSC07024DSC07033DSC07038DSC07046DSC07053DSC07067DSC07069DSC07072DSC07075DSC07100

The “W” Family – Erie Colorado – Fall 2012

Well, it’s been very quiet around here these last few months.  I was so busy with photo sessions and editing, I had to put the blog on hold.


So, here we are at the end of 2013 and I really wanted to finish posting my 2012 sessions.  I have one more.


Such a blessing to work with this family.  Super easy to work with and just plain delightful!

Get to Know You Session with The W Family


It is so neat to meet a new family.  They decided they would make cookies. Lots of giggles and flour!


I have said it before, I just don’t like overly edited eyes that look like aliens.  With that said, after downloading the pictures on my computer and editing them, my jaw dropped when I saw this one.  It looked really good on my camera viewer but nothing like this!!  I only sharpened it a bit and added a little contrast.  That’s it!! The light was perfect and just the right angle too!  And my trusty 50mm lens helped capture this beauty.

Will post the family session very soon.  This is my last fall 2012 session to post!!!
