Blessings

November 13th, 2014

A couple months ago I completed my 11th year of photographing kids. To put that into perspective (and to make me feel a little old), the first newborns I photographed are now in middle school. The first toddlers I photographed are now teenagers. And the first preschoolers I photographed are getting their driver’s licenses. What an amazing decade+ it’s been! It’s been such a blessing to see so many amazing kids through my lens.

 

A few years ago I started a second business, making and selling unique children’s clothes. That business was born of my desire to create, and I love being able to design new products and exercise my creativity. TotTude has grown steadily over the past few years, and this year I really found myself being stretched thin trying to keep up with both my clothing business and my photography business. I decided to take a (very necessary) break from photography in August while preparing for a Zulily event for TotTude. I intended to start booking sessions again after I was done with Zulily, but orders kept coming in and I found that I didn’t have the time or energy to do both anymore. I knew with the busy season approaching for both businesses, I had to make a choice between the two, otherwise my work in both would suffer. So after much thought and prayer, I have decided to say goodbye to Blessings Photography and give 100% of my effort to TotTude. Depending on where life leads, it may end up being more of a “See you later” and not a permanent goodbye, but as for now I am no longer booking photography sessions. Photography will always be a big part of my life and I will never put my camera down. I’m also keeping my studio equipment up and will still book modeling mini sessions to model my clothing items from time to time.
 
I have been so blessed by all of my wonderful clients over the last 11 years. My best estimate is that I have had the privilege of working with around 1,000 different families and double that many kids. I never imagined that Blessings would grow into what it did, and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

3 Little Dudes

November 25th, 2013

It’s always an adventure when these 3 come to see me! They are brothers and a cousin, and then know how to act silly and have fun, but they also know how to turn on the cuteness. :)

Twins!

November 22nd, 2013

This adorable family is about to grow by 4 feet, when they welcome twins next month! They don’t know the genders, but one big sister says 2 boys, and the other big sister says 2 girls. I vote for one of each!

Sweet little L. came in just before her 4th birthday for a photo session and was as fun and entertaining as she always is! Along with her big sister, these two make quite the adorable pair.

Shy no more

Beautiful miss M. just keeps growing up. She definitely is no longer the shy baby I remember seeing a few years ago! She came in to celebrate her 4th birthday with a mini session.
