Little Fingerprints..

In the very front of my studio are very large doors with floor to ceiling panes of thick glass. I love these doors as they make my studio feel airy and large. As a photographer of young children these doors are more often than not graced with little handprints, impressions of tiny noses, and once in a while a smudged drawing done using the end of a small finger.

These little bits of the children who visit me, often the leavings of my own little ones never bother me. Now again I get out the glass cleaner and wipe them away. If only so that the parents of the next children don’t think that we never clean, and to give those little ones a place to put their own masterpieces.

As an artist of sorts myself I can not help but enjoy this little gift the babies and toddlers that come through my studio leave me on the glass. And today as I sat here in the late afternoon watching the sun stream through those glass doors I realized that like those fingerprints left by the children I too get to leave my mark.

The families that walk through my door with round baby bellies and precious newborns are allowing me to ever so gently place a fingerprint on their lives. This is an unforgettable time for them, and I am allowed to capture it forever. The photographs I take, the emotion and the love that is seen in them will never be forgotten, never set aside. These images of newborns full of sweet innocence, wide eyed amazement, and sleepy peace, will be forever treasured by these families.

This is a great honor to me, and hugely humbling. So as we draw so near to the end of this year and take time to spend with those we love I wanted to take this moment to thank you all for including us in your lives. Each and everyone one you, and the babies you so gracefully trust me with, leave a tiny little fingerprint on my heart. Best Holiday Wishes.

Happy Holidays!

The holiday season is in full swing here at the studio, and its certainly put us in a festive mood. We are really enjoying seeing so many of our old clients bring their babies back for us to do their first, (or third lol) Christmas.

Although our first super busy holiday season is causing a few growing pains, we can not help but feel so grateful to have so many people who love our studio!

A Few Changes..

Our photography has always been based on giving our clients amazing customer service with images that express the emotion and relationship in their families. We are so very honored at the outpouring of excitement for our studio. However, we were unprepared for the number of people wanting an appointment.

We tried very hard to get as many people as possible in for appointments, ending up shooting three times what we had expected. Thus extending the time it takes for images to get edited, and not allowing us to do the special art pieces we so enjoy doing.

Just like any business it has taken us some time to find the right balance, and we’ve found that although we would love to be able to photograph everyone that wants an appointment right away we are having to limit our appointments with our maternity and newborn clients getting priority placement.

This is important to let you know for a few reasons. First if you desire an appointment please contact us as far out from the date your desire as possible. Second if you are accustomed to contacting us close to a date of appointment and we are able to accommodate you that might not be possible now.

HOWEVER, we will do our very best for special situations like a service member being home on mid tour leave. We will always do our very best to get you in.

PLEASE do not be concerned if you are expecting or have a newborn baby. We will still be able to work you in during those important timetables.

The most important thing for us is that our clients realize that we are limiting our appointments and giving maternity and newborn priority placement to go back to the quality and quick turn around time that our clients expect from us.

Thank you for your continued support. You honor us deeply by allowing us to capture your memories.
