Just the Fam.

Just sharing a few from my brother and sister in law's visit a couple weeks ago. We took a big family shot, but I am not showing that one because I look straight up like death warmed over in it. Note to self: time to start wearing makeup and doing the hair.

My brother and his wife. She's one of those people you'd love to hate because she's so perfect, but you just love her because she's so nice!
"G" and uncle "E"

And with aunt "B""Cowboy" was my dog in college, but my parents love him so he lives with them now.

Little miss "G"

My Playgroup has had a baby boom of late. In fact, Fin was the first of 6 new babies that will be born in 2008 (he's also the only boy!) My gift to each mommy is a session for their newborn. Here's the newest little addition, "G". (seems g names are quite popular.)This one just makes me melt....G's big sister "A". She always makes the cutest little faces, so I had to get a few shots of her too!Ok, and I have to share this one because it just cracks me up. Notice the finger. I guess she didn't like the hat! ;)

What do a Senior guy, three newborns, a couple of toddlers, my brother and his wife and a little white dog all have in common? They're all things you'll be seeing here on the blog for the next few days. My goal is one post a day for a while, so keep checking in!
So, to kick things off, here's "B". He is an awesome senior who is one of my senior reps for 2009. I am currently seeking more senior reps for 2009 and 2010. It includes a free session. I'll take one guy and one girl from easch area school, so if you know someone who may be interested, please have them contact me! I promise you'll have fun, and I promise there will be no cheesy "2009" signs or fake looking props in your session. These are all about YOU!
So illegal......MWAHAHAHAHAHA....Don't worry, his mom was there and ok with it!

Congrats Winners!

Congrats to #1 and #2 in the canvas contest. Man, some of you know a lot of people. There were close to 900 votes. I am just blown away. I will order those sometime this week and they should be up a Kidz Club within about a month.
AAAAAANNNNNNNNDDDDDDD. I have big news. My new site went live this morning!!!!! I am still tweaking a few things and adding stuff here and there, but overall I am in love. I'll be running some special offers through the month of September in order to ring it in right, so keep an eye out for those. I would also like to announce this month's mini session date and theme. Mini sessions are a brand new type of session availability. In the past I have only offered them sporadically. I am now offering them on select dates each month, every month. They are a fantastic way to get a new set of images for friends and family, or for your own home. They are basically like a standard session, only on a smaller scale. Each mini session will be 20 minutes in length and for up to 2 people. Additional people can be added for $10 each. Images will be shown in my proofing galleries, and ordering will be done online. You also receive an 8x10 of your favorite image included in your session fee.
Mini Sessions are $75 on weekdays and $100 on weekends.
My mini session dates in September are the 26th and 27th. The theme is "We Scream for Ice Cream!" Yep. I am gonna take some MESSY pictures. These will be held in Centro Ybor (not all minis will be there, but there is an ice cream place there and it's not in a strip mall). The 26th will be from 5-7 pm and the 27th will be from 4-6 pm. Email me at to book your slot today! Incidentally, the ice cream theme was inspired by sweet little "A" from a few posts down. I just watched her eat that ice cream and thought to myself "this is the epitome of childhood!"

Ybor Mini Sessions.

It's no secret that I love Ybor City for sessions. There are a plethora of interesting places to shoot there and I LOVE the color. So last weekend I had some special edition mini sessions down in Ybor. These were only offered to folks who receive my newsletter. If you don't get my newsletter and you would like to, please sign up in the box to the right. I offer lots of specials that are only available to those who subscribe. Here are a few (ok a lot) of my favorite images from the mini sessions. I will be using two of them as canvases at Kidz Club, but there's just NO way I am going to be able to choose, so I thought I would let my faithful readers have the privilege. Each child I photographed is in at least one of the images. Aren't they all just gorgeous? So, vote for your favorite. The winners will be on display at Kidz Club and then they will go to the families. Oh, the two winning images will need to be of different children, so if the same child is featured in the two that get the highest votes, I will choose the most artistically pleasing of the two and the second canvas will go to the third place winner.
Also, when I get my new site up (I know, I keep saying it will be soon, I promise it's coming) I will begin offering mini sessions as a session option, so be on the lookout for that.
Edit- 8/15/2008 #12 has been voluntarily removed from the contest, a well meaning older brother voted a bunch of times, but mom wants it to be fair, so little "C" is sitting this one out. Thanks "T and L" for your honesty! I can't edit the poll so he'll stay up, but not in.

Beach beauty.

What a fun session I had with his sweet family. "A" went through 3 costume changes (she didn't like being wet). In typical 2 year old form, she wanted nothing to do with me for the first 20 minutes or so, but by the end she was trying to share her ice cream with both me and the camera! This was another super hard session to narrow down to a sneak peek. There are so many I love! Thanks for a fun time, little "A" and family.
