{“Oh Mommy, those are such ‘beautiful princesses’ “}

So this morning I was awakened by a princess.  Yes that’s right – a fairy princess to be exact.  We don’t see too much of Briella these days but a princess suddenly took residence in our house and we never know if the princess is going to be a ‘dancing princess’, ‘fairy princess’ or some other princess.   And immediately  mommy is transformed into a princess the moment she gets up.  Brielle, or ‘Princess Briella’ (that’s how she wants me to refer to her) gives me a crown, jewels and a wand the minute my feet touch the floor.  I’m ‘mommy princess’.  And I’ve gone out to the store forgetting that I’m wearing a crown and all the accessories Briella dresses me in, wondering why I’m getting funny looks.  That’s life with a little girl… and I wouldn’t trade the funny stares in stores for anything. ;-) {of course boys are just as fun too}

Last week I photographed two gorgeous sisters – both ‘beautiful princesses’  (that’s how Brielle referred to them  when she saw their pictures as I was editing).  Upon meeting them they popped out of their SUV wearing the cutest sunglasses looking ready for the camera.  I loved it and I loved their excited and happy personalities.   And they’re gorgeous to top it off!   Again, another session I just didn’t want to end.  Here’s a little look inside our session.

A little play with my ‘haze of yesterday’ look. 

Another edit with ‘haze of yesterday’.

When I tend not to agree with you, I find your delivery of the feeling one which I can really obtain nice to listen to.
My experiences with science and naturel have clearly been various.
I really admire your imagining.
I have to consider an opposing watch on “vulcanism”, having said that. Like a really untypical woman, We have been informed I’m particularly logical and analytical. And, like the common woman, I have triggers that make me cry, but it surely may possibly cause you to giggle.
I obtain myself most annoyed and pushed into tears by persons behaving illogically. I as a final point had a boyfriend look at me and say, “That’s just it. Individuals really don’t make perception generally. It’s important to quit expecting them to, and after that you’ll be less frustrated much less often.”
Just thought you might get a giggle outside of me.

Gorgeous gorgeous photos!!! I love the first one… Is that a trick with the polaroids? Do you supply cloths at all or did they just pop out of the SUV looking this cute? Great job!

Wow, what awesome poses, compositions, exposures, colors… everything… and then you go and make them EVEN BETTER with some amazing post work. These photos are nothing short of mindbending. I stumbled on this page, in the most random of ways, from comments you left elsewhere. In one brief but amazing post you’ve won me over as a fan of your art.


Never stop shooting and sharing!
Stay happy and healthy,

So cute~ I’m a little envious of your weather
though. My clients would have to be wearing
their snow gear right now….brrrrrrrrr

But your photos warmed me right up.

Is there something in the milk there that
gives your clients such beautiful big round eyes?

Oh my~
