Christmas 2009 | {Family Time}

December 30th, 2009

We had such a fabulous Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season too! Our Dakota, now two and a half, has been the most animated this Christmas than ever.

We had such a fabulous Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season too! Our Dakota, now two and a half, has been the most animated this Christmas than ever. We were all full of laughs watching him open presents and pass them out, bubbling with excitement over a new Tigger and Pooh videos…train sets…the sled he wanted from Santa – you name it!

I’ve been getting a little more in the shooting mode again as my maternity leave is slowly winding down and my brain is able to wrap around more than just baby stuff. I was even inspired when I caught my bro, Will, and his girlfriend, Mariko, snuggling on the couch. I snuck a shot of them and then we turned it all into a mini photo shoot. I even had an “assistant!” (You’ll have to check out the pics to see who it was.)

And introducing: My new assistant! We gave Dakota a camera for Christmas, and he’s ready to work it like mommy. That’s my pumpkin!

In case you didn’t know, he’s also an aspiring musician.

His dad is not, but he sure rocked it out with his boy!

Canyon Taylor | {Newborn Portraits}

December 30th, 2009

If you read my last post, you’re probably wondering what that little baby hidden inside my tummy so long ago looks like. Well, wait no longer…at least not for a peek at what he looked like over two months ago! lol! He is such a cutie pie and it was such a blast being able […]

 

If you read my last post, you’re probably wondering what that little baby hidden inside my tummy so long ago looks like. Well, wait no longer…at least not for a peek at what he looked like over two months ago! lol! He is such a cutie pie and it was such a blast being able to take gorgeous newborn portraits of my own precious little one. (Of couse I love doing newborn portrait shoots for all of my fabulous clients, but there’s just something about it being your own. 🙂 )

Without further ado, here are some of my favorites from the shoot (they few I’ve had time to edit and share with the world!)

Joy to the World | {FREE Marketing Websummit}

December 24th, 2009

I am on a ROLL today, so I thought I wouldn’t stop while I’m ahead. Can you believe I’m posting again?

I am on a ROLL today, so I thought I wouldn’t stop while I’m ahead. Can you believe I’m posting again? There is a really informative day of learning perfectly suited to boutique photographers’ businesses or any boutique business really. It’s happening in just a few days, on December 28th and, get this: it’s completely FREE! I’m not joking. You just need to register beforehand.

Not only that, but it’s all online. That means no cost for travel, and you can be in the comfort of your own office…or even your own home. Just cozy up with some cocoa and pjs and you’re set!

…And if that isn’t enough, you can also purchase the Websummit recordings of the complete event for a very low price: $59 before the event (up to the 27th.)

Now, if you read my previous blog post about the Kelly Moore bag, you where the money I’m saving is headed. If you decide to purchase the Websummit recordings or transcripts of the event, I get to earn some COMMISSION as an affiiliate! Whoo hoo! I’d love it if you’d help me out.

If you click on the link below and make your purchases that way, somehow I get the commission. It wouldn’t work if you just went to the main site directly. Don’t ask me how it works, cause I don’t know. It’s just supposed to. 🙂 Please oh please check it out. You won’t be sorry.

On Maternity Leave | {My Maternity Portraits}

December 24th, 2009

Okay, so I have been on maternity leave since October, but in case you didn’t know, that’s where I am! I’m checking email and phone messages periodically between diaper changes, cuddles, trying to snap a photo or two here and there, and just overall enjoying my little Canyon Taylor.  Sadly, even being a photographer, I […]

 

Okay, so I have been on maternity leave since October, but in case you didn’t know, that’s where I am! I’m checking email and phone messages periodically between diaper changes, cuddles, trying to snap a photo or two here and there, and just overall enjoying my little Canyon Taylor.  Sadly, even being a photographer, I have fallen into the rut that many parents do – the second child gets much less camera time. I did have some gorgeous newborn portrait shoots of him…and some  fun maternity potrait shoots when he was in my belly

I am accepting bookings for 2010, officially starting in March, but we can maybe work something out if you need something earlier.

Here are three fun little maternity photos from my maternity shoot back when I was 34 and 36 weeks along. (I styled the shoot and had my hubby or the remote snap the fun photos! I’ve only edited a few so far but can’t wait until I put them together into my very own little art book or some other fabulous product!) If you want to know more about how you can get a little maternity shoot like this for yourself of a friend, contact me and we’ll get the ball rolling! It’s such an important time, and you’ll want to remember it always.
