Ella {milestone session}

I had the pleasure of photographing this little cutie at 6 months, so I was really excited to see how much she had grown and changed for her first birthday. She certainly didn’t disappoint! Ella was movin’ and groovin’ the entire time. She sat for the first few minutes, then she was off. She didn’t sit still again until we plopped a cupcake in front of her.

Cake smashes are one of my favorite things to shoot because they make for an awesome photo progression and really let me have some fun design-wise. See the custom 10 x 10 photo collage I made for Ella’s parents below!

And because she was born on St. Patrick’s Day, we also had lots of fun with green.

Love these pictures, thanks again Kelly!

Woo hoo!

Okay, seriously, I was HATING my old photo blog. Hating it.

What kind of blog based around images has photos the size of a quarter? Yes, I know, I’m exaggerating. But not much.

To remedy the situation, I researched the possibilities for, oh, months. Because that’s what I do. I overanalyze, debate, weigh all my options and lose sleep over any decision that will likely stick with me for a few years. Some would call that smart. I call it frustrating.

But, fortunately for me, the indecisiveness typically pays off because I almost never regret the decision I’ve made once I’m confident enough to “just go with it already,” as my husband would say.

And what’s not to LOVE about this new blog, right?

Best of all? Check out the size of these photos:

The gorgeous Markowski family gets to be my very first sneak peek. (You’ll find them in the flash header, too.)

Now let me know what you think of the new digs!

Kelly this is beautiful!! The picture sizes are awesome and they all look awesome with your logo. Blogs are hard to get ‘just right’, but I think you’ve done it!! Keep up the amazing work.
