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.

Last week the first round of my brand new Newsletter went out. This will be sent out every few months. If you signed up after the initial mailing or need to sign up, here is the special I announced..I was going to wait until Saturday, but my weekend is very busy and I don’t want to forget!
I have already booked a few of these appointments and some certificates have been purchased. Make sure to book early.. I will be taking the month of December to spend with my family and celebrate the Holidays. I won’t be taking on any new sessions after these book up, except newborns, until 2012. 603.638.3014
I am a hypocrite.. I admit it. I don’t necessarily feel like my “likes” on fb defines my business. However, being in a new place, I would like to see some new faces too! Word of Mouth has been my biggest, amazing advertisement. I am so thankful when people do refer me. It makes me feel all warm and gushy inside knowing the love of my chosen career makes people happy and they love and appreciate custom portraiture as much as I do. In a business where most prosumer cameras’ price points are pretty reasonable and having a photography “business” is easy as addding “photography” to your name, it’s a challenge to set yourself apart. Thankfully I have a client base that truly can, at a glance, know the difference. I HEART all of you that do.. THANK YOU!!!!
I only do one giveaway a year, if any. So, be sure to tell all your friends. Here are the rules:

I knew the Custom Frame to display my newest portrait in my new living room would be something from The Organic Bloom. I knew I wanted something different from everything else I saw in the general market, and The Organic Bloom’s custom frames are just so gorgeous and unique. You can make it your own with custom colors and a design that works with any decor. I ordered mine to incorporate the colors of my new living room and would work with any portraits if I choose to change them out from year to year. Like a piece of furniture, it was an investment. It’s timesless and no matter if I change up my styles and colors, it will remain a constant fixture. Each of my Fall Family clients will have a chance to win an 8×10 frame with their choice of style and colors from The Organic Bloom and a portrait print from their session. Around The Bend Photography is proud to be a Full Service, Custom Boutique Studio.
Pictured is a Twin Stack Frame in two different colors and a glaze added to the inside frame, custom made for a 16×24 portrait. As you can see the over-all dementions are larger, which is one of the components that makes these frames so amazing. Each mounted print 11×14 and larger from Around The Bend Photography is beautifully textured and sprayed for protection.
A few spots left for my Fall Family and Children Special… email me for times and dates email@example.com or call 603.638.3014
Still trying to blog when I can. I am going back and fouth between homes now. Hoping there is a light at the end of our moving tunnel. lol. Sessions are still happening, newborns coming up and HS Senior sessions. I am already booking fall sessions, very excited people are thinking ahead. I am currently booked until the week of June 17th. It can take planning, but thinking ahead and booking early will guarantee dates and times for everyone. Since sessions are limited each week, I feel bad when I have to tell people dates they inquire about are taken. Please make sure to plan accordingly. I am adding amazing backdrops to my collection. I have one currently on it’s way I have waited 5 months for, handpainted by the very talented Becky Gregory. She often has a waiting list and I am sure it will be well worth the wait and investment.
From my busy April, this beautiful girl has the most stunning blue eyes. Thanks J Family!
For all those with High School Seniors, I have an amazing Special starting in June. Book now to get your date scheduled! $50 holds your time and with any Portrait order of $299 or more, receive a 4×6 proof book with all your gallery images!

Storyboards have been my most popular product starting with my very first session. They make amazing gifts no matter what the occasion and come in many styles and sizes, all custom made for each individual client. You couldn’t ask for a more perfect product for a 1st Birthday Cake Smash session. They tell the story of the session like no other, from beginning to end. Each storyboard comes mounted and sprayed for extra protection. You can choose to frame or simply display on an easel for a modern, clean look. I do have a 1st Birthday Session special, combining formal portraits with a cake smash towards the end. Click here for more information.
Oh my…love me some babies! Little baby J kept us going as his Mom informed me he had just started to roll the day before. We were patient and got some of the sweetest baby portraits ever. The next time I photograph Mr J…he will most likely be walking or running. Fun! Fun!
Here is a teeny peek..you can’t help but say “awwww”
I am a true Etsy lover. I very much enjoy customizing all my sessions for my littlest clients and Etsy is the best place I have found to collect beautiful, well crafted items. From tutus, headbands, hats and just about anything else you can think of, Etsy is the place to go. I buy a lot of dresses for my own girls there too. I like the uniquity of what I find and always know it’s a quality item made from love. One of my favorite shops is Maya J Accessories. Her items are not only affordable, but so amazingly gorgeous! They wear well, not too mention photograph well. So, from time to time I am going to share some of my favorite places to shop from my own home.
Because I don’t like doing a post without a picture..here is a little beauty sporting one of Maya J’s gorgeous headbands!
I haven’t seen Little Miss ‘S’ since she was about 6 months old. I photographed this amazing tutu session back in the early summer. She was a little darling then and still is. The only difference is her ability to move really fast. lol. Her eyes are still that gorgeous blue and my, how she has grown. This time we did her first birthday cake smash portrait session and my…she LOVED that cake! Thanks so much beautiful girl and thanks to Mom for being a big help.
This is the storyboard her Mom chose to remember this once in a lifetime moment. What a priceless keepsake!!!!
All my first birthday sessions include background changes and clothing changes.
Don’t forget my Valentine Mini-Sessions January 22, 2011!!! Still slots left!
