Tutu Twirls

One of my favorite vendors, Tutu Twirls, sent me some more goodies the other day. She makes the best quality tutus I have ever seen with silky ribbon around each waistband and lots of extra details. Now her shop will also be featuring gorgeous headbands. I have gotten a lot of headbands from a lot of different vendors. Some of them are well constructed and some are falling apart when I open the box. :-/ All of the headbands from Tutu Twirls were so well constructed that I gave them a few extra tugs to see if I could pull them apart. They stayed put and look adorable on all of my models. The items you see below, minus the pettiskirt from another vendor, should be listed for sale soon! Check out Tutu Twirls on Etsy and Facebook.

Windy Kansas Day

I grew up in rural Kansas. I enjoy rustic country scenery. I like the peaceful quiet of an open field. I do not, however, like the wind that "comes sweeping down the plain". Ok, that song is about Oklahoma but Kansas sure has a lot of wind too! Thank you Baumgartner family for making the drive to meet me and for braving the very windy day. The kids were perfectly adorable and I had so much fun letting them "scare" me.

I love a good smiling photo but I just couldn't resist posting this one. He reminds me of one of the Hardy boys. Does anyone still read those books? :)

I suppose this photo could be considered an out-take of sorts. It is not a traditional portrait but I love the look of pure joy. :)

Baumgartner family, be watching for an email in the next day or so. Your images will be posted to my website shortly.

First Outdoor Portraits of the Year

Spring is just around the corner and I cannot wait for the flowers to be in full bloom. After a hard winter with entirely too much snow, it finally warmed up enough for my first outdoor session of the year! I love the challenge of the changing light and the ability to change the background just by turning around or walking a few feet. Perhaps I need to move to climate that will allow me to shoot outdoors year round. ;) Maybe I would miss the snow if I didn't see any for a while....maybe....

Keremy, your kids are as cute as ever. Hope your little guy had a great birthday! Here is your sneak preview:
