I Heart Faces Challenge: "Smile"

This weeks I Heart Faces challenge is "smile"  so I thought I would enter this picture of cute little Kendall I took awhile back.  It's one of my favorite pictures I've ever taken, and I thought it was a perfect fit for this challenge.  Keep your fingers crossed!  Hope I win!


Excited for 2011!

Happy New Year everyone!  

I had an awesome Christmas break, but now I'm ready to get back behind the camera! I'm so excited for this new year and for all the changes it will bring.  One of my main goals this year is to become a better photographer!  I learn something new everyday with this hobby and I just LOVE it.  This year I will be getting some studio lights and backdrops!  So keep your eye out for that, because I will be needing some models to practice on.  I'm very excited for this because not only will it improve my newborn shoots, but it will be an excellent alternative for those scorching summer months!  Also, this year I will be offering prints!  You can still purchase a cd with your images on it, but if you're wanting high quality professional prints from your sessions, I'll now be a one stop shop for you!  Prices for prints to be posted soon.

So... to kick everything off, I thought I'd start this year out with my very first......(drumroll)....
