One of the most beautiful things in life is the connection of family.  I have been photographing this family since 2009 and it has been so much fun seeing this family grow over the years.  3 beautiful girls plus 1 stunning mommy.  This is by far one of the sweetest families I know.  They are so polite and friendly and I always enjoy seeing them.  This session was extra special because we got to capture their love with mommy!

Easter weekend was fantastic!  Our beach sessions went off without a hitch and the weather couldn’t have been more gorgeous.  I wanted to share a more personal post of our own family’s weekend.  As you can imagine…with 3 kids, my husband and I rarely have a chance to get out by ourselves.  Well, we just celebrated our 9th anniversary this past week.  9 years!  I can hardly believe it has been that long, but as they say…time flies when you are having fun.  Anyway, my mom was kind enough to take care of our 2 oldest kids and let my husband and I (and Ivy of course) have a little getaway by ourselves.  The big kids just love spending time with Grandma, so they hardly noticed we were gone and well, Ivy seems like a piece of cake when you are used to taking care of 3.  It was a great, relaxing weekend and it was so much fun experiencing everything for the first time right along with Ivy.  I wanted to share just a couple a lot pictures from our trip…

From 60% chance of thunderstorms to bright and sunny…It’s funny how things always fall right into place.  I spent the better half of last week obsessing about what the weather was going to do on Friday.  One day is all we had to capture this gorgeous family before they parted ways.  Everything worked out perfectly.  The weather was gorgeous, the location was beautiful and the family was just picture perfect!  I decided to do a session showcase (showing many more images than a sneak peek) since there were so many images I loved.  Hope you like them!  It was great working with all of you.

Although I do consider myself a fairly creative person and have always been interested in different forms of art, there are certain crafts and arts that are just simply meant for others and I have been fortunate enough along the way to meet some fantastic friends and super talented people.  I thought, as a new monthly series, I would take the opportunity to “brag” on some of these wonderful people.  Many of the props that I use for your shoots as well as just on my own kids I have found through the talents of others.

I wanted to start with one of my good friends, Melissa who is a seamstress and owns EllyBelly Style by Melissa.  She creates the most gorgeous color combinations and fun, bubbly patterns that even the most picky children will love!  You will love browsing through her products and seeing all of the super sweet designs she has to offer.  As an owner of several of EllyBelly Style’s adorable creations, I can attest to the fantastic quality and durability of each one of her products.

 

Q:  Are you strictly online, have a walk-in store or both? Where is your business based?
A:  No I am not. I run MOST of my business online but I do have a small studio that I work out of. I have clients come by for measurements, color coordinating and even to pick out the fabrics they want all the time! It is definitely no set up like your run of the mill place of business though!

Q:  Tell us more about your products:
A. I offer boutique style clothing for girls, boys and women. I try to make sure that my things are unique and one of a kind. I offer custom designing to all my clients, which is where they can, together with me, design exactly what they envision, down to the pleats, the fabric and the ruffles. I also make hair accessories to match my outfits and on a made to order basis.

Q:  How can we find more of your products:
A: www.ellybbellystyle.etsy.com, www.facebook.com/ellybellystyle call for an appointment: 8177052768

Q:  5 words that best describe you:
