I Heart Faces Contest Entry – A Touch of Sun

This weeks challenge over at I Heart Faces is “A Touch of Sun”.  I love sun flare photos and this one has got to be near the top of my list of those I’ve been able to capture. I love the symbolism in this picture. New life represented by a flare of golden sun, a new creation, in the image of the one who gives light and said “let there be light.” The sun was just in the perfect spot for this image. Jayme and Eric will be welcoming their baby soon!

Great modern way to keep your proofs!

I am so excited today because I have a new way for you to have all of the proofs of your session. I have had a number of people ask if they could buy all the proofs from their session. I always said that I didn’t sell them because I didn’t like the idea of a proof book or packet laying around somewhere and it just seemed unfinished to me and because I offer on-line proofing for your convenience. But, I found a great program that allows me to take all of your proofs from your proofing gallery and make a great video out of them complete with music that you can purchase as an add on to your order. I can also insert video clips from your session into this dvd. How awesome to look back at the proofs of your baby’s one year portrait session and see video of your sweet little angle all covered in goo laughing and playing. Wouldn’t that be fun to play as she gets older?  Or maybe you could play the dvd of your engagement session during your wedding reception. The possibilities are endless. So for those of you who aren’t facebook friends with me, I am uploading an example of a video of all the proofs that we did with Raelynn, a senior this year.  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I love your comments. Thanks!!

Another Great senior

Last year I had the pleasure of taking Landon’s senior portraits. Landon is such a great young man, who is already in college. We had a lot of fun taking his senior portraits and got some unique shots. Here are a few of  his pictures…


When we were taking Landon’s pictures, his younger sister Raelynn, who was a junior, came along. I noticed right away how beautiful she is and she was very helpful and pleasant. They mentioned that she already had someone picked out for her senior portraits but I was really hoping that when her time came for senior pictures, I would get a call. Sure enough, a few months later their mom called and we set up the appointment. After a few re-schedulings we finally got together a couple of days ago and I am so glad we did. What a sweet young lady. Just like Landon, she is involved in lots of activities at school, church and the community. She is very polite and lots of fun. Not to mention the fact that she is stunning. The best part is that Raelynn is a beautiful young lady for all the right reasons, not just physical beauty but inner  beauty as well, I think it runs in the family. Good job Mr. and Mrs. Bennett.

Raelynn, enjoy your senior year, it will be over in a flash. God bless you as you follow His leading on into the next great adventure in life.

“iheartfaces” Photo challenge entry – White

Each week, “iheartfaces” has a photo contest. I’ve chosen this image of Kayla for my entry for this week. The theme this week is “white”.  I thought about using a bridal image but decided to go in a different direction. Kayla looked so fresh in her white top and I loved the white barn wall as a backdrop for her.
