A.K.A. The Two Year Old Whisperer

I've been told on more than one occasion that I'm the "Two Year Old Whisperer" and I have to say, it's an honor.  I know what you are thinking.. two year olds can be scary, fickle, frustrating and their moods change on a dime.  Yes, they are all of this and more, depending on the day of course and it can change a few times during that same day, but I love a good challenge.                                               Speaking of which....Take my buddy Gavin here.. he's a perfect little two year old..he's adorable.. I mean, look at this guy's eyes!  Little ladies, look out when he's older, he'll rope you in with one big blinky look.  AND, MR. Gavin is the epitome of a two year old with attitude.  I've seen him go through the Jekyll and Hyde routine a few times in the camera room and it's always entertaining.I first met Mr. Gavin before Christmas, his momma brought him in for our fun holiday event and he was less than thrilled with this idea.  Oh sure, he screamed a while, and if I looked at him sideways, he'd scream some more.  His mom and I giggled a bit when I empathized with her and assured her most two year olds are like mini-terrorists with a non-stop bomb strapped to themselves that could go off at any time.. and ...

Celebrating MOM
Wednesday, April 22, 2015

As a photographer, I'm passionate about celebrating the special bonds between a mom and her kids.  When I looked back in my baby book, I realized I don't have any portraits of my mom and I, and it makes me sad.  I want to look back at our relationship together when we were both younger, see how young she looked, she her expression of love as she sat near me or how we looked at each other and interacted together.  It wasn't until adulthood, when I became a professional photographer, that I had her into the studio for portraits of us taken by one of my good friends and mentors, Vic Orenstein of KidCaper Art Portraits.  On Saturday, May 2, I'm offering something in honor of Moms and their kids.  From 10-4, by apppointment, you can sign up for a mini-session and make sure your kids, or mom, or both have what I didn't.  A lasting professional keepsake that you can enjoy forever, pass down to your kids, remember the time you are in right now, forever. I'm donating the $100 sesison fee to Children's Cancer Research Fund, and giving you, as a thank you gift, two free 5x7 portraits along with a Facebook timeline.  You'll also be getting a fun goodie bag with discounts and freebies from the studio, Pout In Pink-Woodbury, where the sessions will take place on May 2nd, Wild Child Salon is adding and I'm still working on gathering more treats ...

School days, School days....

I'm sad to see Summer go, I really enjoy our "Summer lifestyle" as I like to call it.  Being a professional photographer has allowed me to have a more flexible schedule during the summer so my kids can be home as much as possible.  Don't get me wrong, this "Summer Lifestyle" has it's challenges.. like often having to work 6 days a week, staying up late to work after the kids go to bed (to finish work for the day that didn't get done because of the extra interruptions), and stressing to get my butt out there to market my business so we have sales coming in that pay bills.  Despite the extra challenges, I'm still sad to have a new schedule upon us and I'm hoping we can keep it a bit more relaxed this year to keep enjoying our time together. In a moment of creativity a few months ago, I found an awesome idea on Pinterest that I have re-created here for our School Days portrait sessions yesterday and today.  I started doing these sessions last year, because frankly, I was tired of the inconsistency with that chain store place the school's hire and I knew I could do a better job.  I'm a little bit annoyed when I see portraits of kid's on people's walls that are supposedly "professional" and the kids have crazy hair, milk mustaches and dirty looking clothes because they were photographed after recess.  Not to ...
