Ivy's Newborn Session ~Coming Soon~


Friday, February 27, 2009



Updating my blog....

Over the next couple of days I will be trying to figure out how to post larger images in my blog so please be patient with me as I briefly make a mess of things... I promise it will be worth it in the end! : )


Sebastian and Robin ~Married~

On Saturday I had the opportunity to second shoot a super fun Mardi Gras themed wedding with the amazingly talented Beth Berry http://bethberrypictures.blogspot.com/! Robin and Sebastian are such a cute couple and they are so much fun to be around... it was actually my first time meeting them and by the end of the day I felt like we were old friends! Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day...I hope you enjoy your pictures!!!

I snuck this one in while Beth was having the girls pose for a group shot...Robin was cracking up the whole time, pre wedding jitters perhaps? :)

I think she caught a glimpse of her groom outside taking portraits with his groomsmen...no peeking Robin! :)

The cutest flower girl and ring bearer ever! <3

Favorite! <3
Checking out the scene before walking down the aisle

Cake and champagne...my two favorite things at weddings both of which I never get to enjoy...

I love listening to the speeches...
the guys usually make everyone laugh...
and the girls usually make everyone cry.

The little ring bearer really wanted the garter but somehow the tallest guy in the room ended up with it...go figure. I think it was rigged! :)
Fun party shots!
I decided to try to teach my self a fun new trick but I think I may have gotten a little carried away!

Mina and Jared ~Engaged~

Saturday I got the opportunity to spend the afternoon with Mina, Jared, and Mina's little boy Isaiah and I had a blast getting to know them! We met up at the Old Spaghetti factory and made our way down to the grafiti wall. I'm pretty sure that we picked the coldest day of the month for their engagement session but Mina and Jared were H-O-T hot!!! They are sooo in love and so passionate about each other and I loved that about them! Jared looks at Mina like he could just eat her up and the whole time we were shooting he was whispering sweet nothings in her ear (ok, it was probably more along the lines of being x-rated but we'll keep it clean for the blog! HA!) We got a lot of cute shots in...I always have a hard time chosing my favorites so here are just a handful to hold Mina over...I know she's dying to see them! Thank you Mina and Jared for being so much fun to work with...you guys are going to have an amazing life together!!!

Jared proposed to Mina under the Arch so we had to make sure to include it in some of our shots!

And of course we had to get Isaiah in there as well! Poor little guy was freezing but he was such a trooper!

See..HOT right?! :)

Mina was working it...look at her smiling with her eyes, Tyra would be so proud!!!

Hmm...I wonder what Jared was whispering here?

I think Jared liked this pose...HA!
I was all up in their business to get this shot but I love the way it turned out!

~Mina and Jared~ Coming Soon!!!


Friday, February 6, 2009


I've recently challenged myself to find something every single day that inspires me to see things differently. As you grow older things become routine...familiar. You start to look at things without really seeing. As a child your eyes are wide open... everything is fresh, new, and different. A box is no longer just a box...it's a race car, a space ship, a castle....whatever you want it to be. My 7 year old has an amazing gift to see things in ways I would never imagine and there is no limit to his creativity. He loves art in all forms (drawing, painting, making something from nothing) and he does it all so effortlessly! So today my inspiration is my son! I pray for God to open my eyes so that I can stop looking and start seeing...to have a brand new fresh take on the world around me...to give me the eyes of a child.

Ivy Shay ~Birth Story~

Ok, first off I appologize for this being the longest blog EVER but this was my very first time shooting a birth story and I'm super excited about it!!! It was the most amazing experience and I took a few hundred pictures (all of which turned out great) so narrowing them down for the blog was next to impossible for me!
Thursday morning I received the phone call letting me know that my favorite preggo, Holly, had gone into labor so I hopped in my car and headed out to St. Johns. By the time I got there I think I was as nervous as if I were about to give birth myself but once I saw Holly and Bob I was immediately at ease and ready to do my job (I seriously have the best clients in the world) Holly is superwoman and decided to go through labor and delivery completely drug free!!! She is now on my top ten list of people to never have on my bad side!!! This is Holly's third time giving birth but the first time doing it all natural (she has a 12 year gap between the 2nd and the 3rd so I think she may have forgotten the pain over time...lol). She was completely amazing though and never once asked for any meds!!! What made things even more exciting was the fact that Holly and Bob decided not to find out the sex of the baby until he or she was born so we were all placing bets on whether they would have a boy or a girl...I bet on a boy but obviously I'm not a gambling woman :) Ivy made her entrance into the world at 11:09 and I feel so blessed that I was there to witness something so beautiful!!! Holly and Bob, I love you guys...thank you so much for letting me be a part of such a significant day in your lives!!! Oh, and Holly...now that I've seen all of your woman parts I think we may qualify as BFF's :)

Being the Diva that she is Holly insisted on having her eyebrows done before giving birth! HA!
Since Bob wasn't able to make it to our maternity session Holly really wanted to get a few pictures of his hands on her belly before the baby arrived.

No drugs...

Bob was so sweet with Holly...he never left her side!
I loved all of the different emotions on his face as he watched and encouraged Holly when labor got difficult.

If you ever want some dramatic mood lighting just visit a labor and delivery room :)
Ok...check out Bob's expression when the doctor pointed out that the baby's head was crowning...how incredibly funny is this!!!
It's a GIRL!!!

Baby feet :) I swear she has all of her toes, she just didn't want to show them off, HA!
Seeing her beautiful daughter for the first time!

I think he's in love!

Favorite of the day!
First kisses from mommy and daddy!
I think the doctor who delivered Ivy looks just like Lexi Grey on Grey's Anatomy :)
Proud Grandma!!!
What a sweet baby girl! She looks just like daddy here!
