Draper Family

After I did this photo shoot, I told these parents that Del was the most cooperative two year old I’ve encountered during a photo shoot!  And then I had another just as cooperative that evening!  I was amazed at my little assistants that day… it was a day of great photo shoots!  Del had his own mountain he kept pointing out to me, and he was so sweet to his bright-eyed little brother who is 9 months old.  They are such a beautiful family 🙂

Hadliegh, 6 months old

Little Miss Hadleigh came back in for her 6 month photo shoot.  She’s as cute as a button!  I just love her beautiful headband her mom made, almost as much as I love her adorable little smirks 🙂

Emily, One Year Old

Emily is just as sweet as she can be, with blue eyes that light up the world when she smiles!  She is so incredibly loved by her parents and grandparents who all came out for the photo shoot.  I could tell she means the world to all of them.  🙂



Hannah, 15 days old

Meet Hannah, 15 days old.  She was born at 6 pounds and 3 ounces, and so sweet, tiny, and delicate… and such a smiley dreamer!  I love when I’m able to catch adorable sleep grins 🙂

Paityn, 7 months old

Little Miss Paityn is seven months old now.  Where did the time go?  It seems like it was only yesterday when I was doing her newborn session!  Now she’s all smiles and sparkle!  Her mom stayed up late the night before making her these fancy headbands that compliment her personality perfectly!

Tyler, 8 days new

Meet Tyler…  His new parents are in love, and who wouldn’t be?  Look at that beautiful head of hair, those sweet little lips, and those dreamy little toes. The world is a sweeter place having this handsome little boy in it.

Happy Spring!

Happy first day of spring!  Here’s a couple shots of two-year old Dylan from our most recent trip to the Huntington Gardens.  I just love cherry blossoms 🙂

Organic Bloom Frames

I’m so excited to offer beautiful custom framing options from The Organic Bloom!  These are a personal favorite of mine!  They are the most beautiful, unique, and whimsical frames I have ever seen.  You won’t find them at framing stores or other retail outlets.   Each individual frame is handcrafted, painted, aged, and distressed to your hearts desire by a small company that sells directly to photographers! With the variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, with the option for multiple openings and double stacking colors, the possibilities are endless! Each frame is a unique work of art designed to give your cherished photos the flair they deserve!

Below, I’ve tried to illustrate the basics to get you on your way to designing your custom frame.  The only problem you’ll have is wanting ten instead of one 🙂  Eventually my home will be covered in these!  In a future post, I’ll post some idea photos of frames and frame groupings others have done!

Mounted Prints

Many of my clients ask about mounted prints.  I always mount anything larger than an 8×10, to prevent warping in the frame.  Even smaller prints are extremely nice when mounted, and provide a very nice professional touch.  Here’s a mounted 8×12 photo so you can see the thickness of the matboard.  I can also mount on foamboard, which is thicker, and my choice for very large prints.

Gallery Art Blocks

A lot of my customers are unfamiliar with gallery blocks, so I thought I’d share a little bit about them and post some pictures.  Gallery Art Blocks are professional metallic prints adhered to a solid wood structure and then laminated to insure no wearing, tearing or peeling. Each gallery block has clean, crisp 90° angles, without folded corners like canvas. They are really easy to clean (just wipe with a damp cloth!). I have them available as single images or as art collages, which can be customized to fit any room or nursery!
