I had the priviledge to photograph this sweet little man. He will be in no shortage of attention or love! Future Hunter and I can’t wait to see him grow through my lens.
We had a little fun in the studio today in honor of Valentines Day. Went a little Audrey Hepburn with hairstyle and she had fun being a ham in front of the camera.

I know I have neglected my poor blog, but in the height of Senior Portraits, I have a good excuse. My third year as a HS Senior Portrait Photographer, this has been such an amazing year. I adore photographing Seniors, especially from the area where I started it all. It’s reassurance the 45 minutes to see me isn’t so far after all.
Sarah, the youngest in her family was my first senior girl this year. The hectic world of relocating gave me doubts I would be able to get in the full swing of Senior Portraits this season, but Sarah told me she knew she wanted me to take her portraits when she saw images of a senior friend from last year. What a fantastic compliment. I feel as though I have more then a professional relationship with my clients and meeting with Sarah and her Mom, Carol proved just that. Thank you so much for choosing me to capture these truly important portraits.

My new Red “Lola” Epiphanie camera bag arrived today! I absolutely love it! My old camera bag was really not my style. It served it’s purpose well enough, but always seemed bulky and not comfortable. My Epiphany bag is just my style… truly gorgeous and very well made. It will fit my canon cameras and L lenses just fine. This way, my camera can really go everywhere! Don’t forget to enter the 1K giveaway Here. You could win a Photography session worth over $500!!!!
I first discovered MillieLee Designs while doing one of my many “window shopping” afternoons on Etsy. I fell head over heals for her beautiful creations. The dresses were simple with a flare and the patterns classic and gorgeous. Something I look for when shopping for my girls. Did I mention Milli Lee’s dresses are also Organic? Organic, made in America and supporting a small business, love it!!! Etsy is the place I shop first when I am on the look-out for everyday clothes that also photograph well and I can hand down from girl to girl. I am not a “trendy” Mommy, sometimes this disapoints my girls, but I think they will grow an appreciation for all things classic and timeless. There seriously isn’t a day that goes by when we don’t get compliments on the girls’ appearences. Comfortable, yet beautiful is my standard. Yes, my girls are allowed to play in the mud, go barefoot and climb trees, just not in Etsy treasures. lol.
Here are just some of the gorgeous creations you will find in Milli’s shop…
One of my beautiful clients.. she was just a few weeks old when I first photographed her. My, how the time has flown!
All hair accessories are also products made from love found at Etsy. Support the small businesses and Moms who put so much love and their talent into each of these products. You really do get what you pay for and I choose to do my part in supporting small business women like myself.
I was truly excited to meet this handsome little man. I was a referral from his Auntie and so honored to photograph this once-in-a-lifetime session. We were able to capture him sleeping and oh-so-sweet and awake to interact with Mom and Dad for thier portraits together. Thank you so much “K” Family.. I am so happy you loved his portraits as much as I do!
Around The Bend Photography is a Full Service, Custom Boutique Studio. Including custom product choices with your session gallery is part of our service.
With each Newborn session we will show Custom Birth Annoucements, a beautiful way to announce the arrival of your precious addition. We work with you to use complimentary colors and any information you want to include. These are 5×7 flat, double sided announcements and include envelopes. You can choose a more “boutique” style folded card as well.
Also available are Custom Storyboards, really no better way to display many images in one design. Our most popular product! We are so pleased to offer custom framing for our storyboards, as sizing of most storyboards are unique as the product itself. Classic frames as well as Custom frames from The Organic Bloom are available. Organic Bloom frames can be matched to the colors of your nursery.. what a beautiful addition that would be!
I am loving all the beautiful colors available for Fall dressing this year. Purples, Burgundy and Grey seem to be every where. Almost anywhere you shop or in your very own closet, I am sure you will be able to find coordinating your family will be easier then you thought. It’s all about staying within the same color tones and complimenting hues. I will have a few more ideas coming your way next week! Don’t forget, I still have a few spots left for my Fall Family portrait special later in the week of October 3rd, and afternoons are the perfect time for gorgeous lighting of all the seasonal colors. firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is an example for dressing your family for your Fall Portraits.. styles available at; Old Navy, Gap, Gap Kids and PiperLime
It’s been a couple of months since I did a more personal post. I took my troop to a local fair/carnival. It was a sweltering day and barely a person to be found, it would seem as though we had the place to ourselves. No lines, no waiting…pretty perfect! Well, except the rides do freak me out a tad, old and worn. I guess the norm for most small town fairs. My oldest disappointed in not being able to ride to “adult” rides as she isn’t big enough and even my youngest had a complaint about it too. Keeping three personalities happy in one outing is a challenge, but everyone was happy to end the day with cotton candy and sticky fingers..lol. Enjoy!
They were the only children on the ride and they still chose to ride in the same car…love it. I actually had tears.
I will always remember those sunglasses my oldest is wearing, she and her sister bought the same pair for .99 and never took them off the whole shopping trip. I truly hope they remain that close always.
