I am 3



Cooper came today to have his 3 year photo session today.  I've known Cooper  since he was born  as his Dad was one of my boys basketball coaches from High School.  We have enjoyed watching Cooper at the games and sharing popcorn.  
Cooper wanted to play with the Firetruck first.  He remembered it from last year.  We let him play for a while before moving on...(we didn't want to get him bored) 
Then we wanted to display his name and his mom liked the antique chalkboard I had.  You can use any type of chalkboard that you have around too.
This was my favorite part of the session.  I found this on Pinterest and I thought it was so cute.  We used my boys old Hotwheels and Matchbox cars to make a 3 which is how old of course Cooper is.  He had fun picking out the ones we used out of the big storage tote.  We sure got a great smile out of him too.
Finally, we were able to go outside and shoot a few photos today. The weather was great for the first of February too.  Cooper sure did like our old truck too and what little boy wouldn't. I think he looks older than three in this shot too...Thanks again Cooper for spending your morning on the farm with us! We will see you at the games and share some more popcorn soon!

Day One

Well I have done it! I have created a blog..now what do I do?? I hope to figure it all out so you can see all the great people and children I have been busy taking pictures of. I love being able to capture their memories and chapters in each one of their lives. I have especially enjoyed the babies I have gotten to do this winter. They are so precious. I hope you enjoy what I want to share!

Helpful Hints to making your photo session great!


When would be the best time for us to get our photos taken?

The best time to take outside pictures is early morning or later in the afternoon to try and avoid shadows

How long does it take to see my proofs?

I do proofs online which should cut the time for viewing to just a week. Then I will email you your link for you to share with family and friends.

What can I expect from my session?

FUN! We want to make this a wonderful experience for you!

What kind of things can I bring?

Hats, friends, pets, uniforms, musical instruments, hobbies, sunglasses, your car, letter jackets, etc. Whatever makes you unique.

What about hair, make up and glasses?

Bring glasses without frames if possible. Give a haircut or hairdo a couple of days to relax and grow out. Guys, remember to have a fresh shave. Gals, use slightly more make up, but don't overdo it.

What if it rains?

Go ahead with your indoor session as planned and we will do the outdoor session another day. Overcast days are just as good as sunny ones.
