My Own Little Munchkin...

So I decided to take pictures of my little one...or should I say big?? After I took all the pics and uploaded them to edit I relized how big she's getting....I just can't believe my little tiny baby is 4 years old now...and turning into such a little lady! Makes me sad and happy all at the same time! Can't they just stay little forever?

Little Miss Cutie Patootie!!!

I think the pictures say it all!! I had the pleasure of meeting this little munchkin yesterday and she was such a sweetie! She LOVED the pearls!! They kept her entertained while I just snapped away. We got some family ones of her and her momma and daddy as well, but I was just so excited to share these ones I had to post!
Thanks guys! It was a blast!

Madison and Sara...SNEAK PEAK

It always makes it nice when a last minute photo shoot brings some awesome pictures!!! The temperature was perfect for outside pictures so after a few studio shots we decided to move outside!! I'm so glad we did because the wheat fields and grassy surroundings made for some great pictures!!!
Always a pleasure Madi and Sara!!!

How do I sign up for a mini session?
Contact us by email at
What if it rains or the weather is bad on the day of our mini session?
In case of inclement weather, mini photo sessions will be rescheduled to the following weekend if weather allows.
The most important thing is that everyone is dressed in clothes they like and feel comfortable in. Put all family members in the same color tone and a similar style. The blue color family is the most complimentary color on every complexion. Navy in particular photographs beautifully. Dark colors like chocolate brown and navy are a great alternative to black as they do not loose their dimension and texture in a photograph. Avoid dressing family members in contrasting colors. For example, do not dress your children in white and then have the adults in black. This creates too much contrast in an image and photographs poorly.

Our sessions are at casual indoor and outdoor locations so choose clothing that is fun, do not dress in formal attire. Solids are always a safe choice and choose clothing that is classic in style as it tends to create a more timeless look. Hats, headbands and barrettes are a great way to jazz up and outfit. Collared shirts with rolled up sleeves and jean or khaki shorts look great. Choose t-shirts that have details like v-necks, embroidery, or lightly ruffled sleeves. For boys Polo style shirts are another good choice.

Avoid bright colors like orange and red as they tend to highlight ruddy undertones in your skin. If you have fair complexion do not dress in light colors and pastels as these color will wash out your coloring in a photograph. Textured fabrics photograph beautifully, denim, cable knits, sweater, linen and eyelet dresses have great textures and are excellent choices.
If the photograph includes more than one individual, remember to coordinate clothing so that everyone is dressed in a similar style and choose clothing that is similar in tone. In other words, dressing one child in black and the other in white is not advised; instead choose two similar shades of cream.

AFTER THE SHOOT: How do I view and purchase my photos?
About a week after your photo session, you will receive an email notifying you that your images are ready to be viewed. A link will be provided which will enable you to view and purchase your images online. If you prefer, you may place your order via email, phone or by coming to our studio.

How many images will I get to choose from?
Generally there will be 15-20 images per 30 minute mini session. Numbers may vary as each session is different. Please keep in mind that we post only the best images in an effort to make your selections easier.

Can I use an image from our mini session for a holiday card?
Absolutely, you may order loose prints which can be inserted into photo cards or choose a press-printed folded card option where the image is printed directly onto a heavy stock. These cards also allow for a small image on the back of the card, which adds interest and personality.
What are the prices of prints for holiday cards or folded press-printed holiday cards?If you place your holiday card order by October 15th you will receive a 20% discount off of the regular card prices. See below for details

What is the ordering deadline for holiday cards and prints
