Tatum Turns 1

It seems like just yesterday when I was photographing this little guy's newborn session. I remember how easy his session was! He was such a good little baby! Now here I am photographing his 1st birthday/cake smash session! Sweet little Tatum did not disappoint! He smiled and laughed the ENTIRE session! It was the cutest thing I've ever seen! 

Here is a peek into his 1st birthday session!

A Little Revamping

I am SO excited about the year 2014! I've had lots of plans and ideas for the past few months and I couldn't wait to put them into action! Throughout each year, I'm constantly observing things and how they could be better. For 2014, I decided to offer some different packages rather than my regular session and mini session. I realized that not everyone needed as much time while some needed more.

Starting now, these will be my packages available:

Full Session- this now includes 1 hour of time for $100
(Your choice of location, unlimited outfit changes)
Includes family sessions, bridals, couples, 1st birthday, etc.

Mini Session- this includes 20-30 minutes of time for $50
These are not offered at all times. They are normally offered every few months as a themed session or during holidays)

Seniors- two different packages are now available for these.
See the "prices" link above to read the details.

Newborn Sessions- include an hour and a half of time for $150
These can be done in studio or in your home for a more "lifestyle" type session.

Weddings- $500-$800
There are 2 packages for weddings.
See the price link for details.


Now for the fun part!

I have always LOVED playing around with graphic design. I've had the opportunity to design a few invitations for events and I really enjoyed it! I design my own logos as well as some of the collages and other templates I use in my business.

I will now be offering custom invitations for birthdays, showers & weddings and save the dates and custom printables!
Here are just a couple of pieces that I've created here recently.

I am looking forwards to adding more creations soon!
Prices vary on design. See the "boutique" tab for details.

Hope everyone has a fabulous New Year!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Christmas is my absolute most favorite time of the year! I love the decorations, the family time and that warm fuzzy feeling that this time of the year gives you. My husband and I really get into decorating our home. Sometime I think we may do a little much but our love how it makes our home look like a winter wonderland. I love cutting out the lights in the house and turning on all the christmas lights. 

Every year I put up multiple trees. I love seeing them all over the house!

This sweet little tree was our first. When we got married we lived in a much smaller home and so a small christmas tree was necessary. This tree has a candy theme and includes red and gold ornaments. This tree is special to me. Many of the ornaments were passed down to me. They were once my grandmothers. I love looking at my tree and all of the many memories in each and every ornament. I know that at Christmas time, a part of her is here in my home.

This is my 10- foot tree. It literally takes me about a whole day to get it up and decorated. I normally split it into 2 days. One day to assemble the tree and get the lights on it, and one day to decorate it. This year I decided to change up the colors and do gold and brown. When we first moved into our new house, my poor little 6 ft tree looked puny with our high ceilings. My husbands aunt had this tree that she wasn't able to use, so she passed it our way. I love having a huge tree!

This year we added a third tree. 
My husband loves UVa. It seems like every year he gets more and more ornaments through gifts. We finally had enough to do a small themed UVa tree. Now all it needs is a tree skirt! Why is it so hard to find a tree skirt for a 3 foot tree????? Ugh

I Love decorating my mantle! I decorate it for every little holiday!
My mantle decorations are a little vintage. I love the way it looks!

How do you decorate for Christmas? I'd love to see your pictures!
