a session that’s quite personal…

This is definitely an unusual post!  But I really think it’s cool.  🙂  Just as I feel it SO NECESSARY for everyone elseto document pieces of their lives, I of course, believe that same thing!  Throughout my pregnancy, I had an amazing photographer reserved for my maternity session.  It was scheduled and I couldn’t have been more excited!  Unfortunately, after both hurricanes causing Adam’s work schedule to become INSANE for two months straight, I was forced to cancel.  I was devastated. 

So, about two weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon (at eight months pregnant), Adam and I set up the studio and I became the subject.  Was it easy?  No.  🙂  Hard?  Not really!  We had a great time and I couldn’t have been happier!  Seeing this task was a lot harder than most sessions, with Adam not quite knowing what he was doing, I made a lot of trips between the lights and camera throughout our one hour session.  How did we get the last image?  It really wasn’t that hard!  We shot about 20 images with both of us in them via the timer and, once again, a lot of running back and forth between shots.

Why am I sharing MY maternity images?  Because.  Because I share other maternity images that I’ve taken; why not share my own?  My session was more natural and played largely on light & lines.  I’ve never photographed a session quite like my own.  I think it really shows how beautiful (in the right light – lol) an expecting mother can be and I HOPE that this inspires my other expecting mothers to have the same images done.  

So…  here I am!  At a whopping EIGHT MONTHS preggo for our first baby – who will be here in ONE WEEK!!!

Nell

Emily and I have been working at getting together for this session since at least July, so I couldn’t have been more thrilled that we finally got the images we’ve talked about for so long!  Nell is THE cutest little ballerina and her mom really wanted to capture this little peice of her five year old life.  So, we started in the studio…  I love this first image.  I had it printed as a panoramic gallery wrapped canvas for the studio and it’s gorgeous!

She’s quite a silly little girl.  I’ve been photographing her and her sister for years now.  It’s been awesome watching her blossom into such a gorgeous girl.

Me attempting to capture just a TASTE of the energy Nell was packin’ that day…   :o)

We headed to a little malt shop to wrap up the day.  This has to be THE most colorful ice cream ever.  DANG.

Only an awesome mom like Emily would give her daughter that color ice cream, in a cone, and wearing a cute outfit!  lol  Good job, Em!  I’m taking notes.  ;o)

Hey guys!  I know my Dr. Perry peeps have been stacking up due to my maternity leave, so we will actually end up with (most probably) TWO days in February dedicated to all those straight toothed kids out there.  🙂  BUT, we will start reserving all of our openings for the 12th and then, if needed, open up the following Thursday, the 19th as well.

SO IF YOU HAVE YOUR CARD AND HAVEN’T RESERVED YOUR TIME YET – CALL US ASAP!  Prime spots fill up fastest and we’ve already begun booking times.  You can also shoot us an email through the website.  🙂

Why I strongly dislike DHL.

img_0842

Yep.  About $1000 worth of prints were just delivered. And this is how they came.  Yes, the is only the second time since I had to change labs that this has happened, but it’s only been like TWO months!!!  I didn’t even know if everything was IN there.  Who knows?  Beautiful wedding prints and album spreads could be floating down some drainage ditch somewhere between Dallas & here for all I know!  That makes me sad. 

Needless to say, I was on the phone with Pounds just as fast as my fat preggo fingers could dial their number.  It’s not their fault; but, DHL being their only shipping company, they have to clean the mess up from them and re-print & re-ship ASAP.  The super nice lady over the phone just said, “And what if this was your mother’s china you were waiting on?”  She’s totally right!  Oh I’d want to kill them.  Actually, I think I would. 

Booby-traps would be just the thing.  😉

Molly Senior ’09

Molly was so awesome for her session a few weeks ago.  I’ve had SO MANY seniors this fall, and I’m so glad!  Like I’ve already said – this is my FAV time of the year!!!  😀

Sessions are over, but many blog posts are to come!  For now, here’s a peak at Molly’s…

Brittany & Brandon

Here is a piece of Lindsey trivia:  What is my FAVORITE time of year, hands down?  FALL!!!  My absolute favorite.  The sun, the weather, the leaves.  Ariel said it should be Spring, with the flowers and all, but then after a little debating, we both agreed Fall is best – it’s more laid back and relaxed and the colors & weather just make you want to spend all day in a hammock.  Spring has too much going on – graduation, Spring Break, it starts getting HOT…  :o)

Well as of yesterday, I am officially done with sessions until next year.  I’m still working in the office, desperately trying to catch up on office work and orders so I can TRY to start relaxing before the boy gets here in FOUR WEEKS!!!  Or sooner..?!  Let’s hope he stays on time.  🙂  December 2nd is close enough!

So here is my last e-session with the cutest couple, marrying in January in New Orleans!  Brittany had the great idea to meet at a ranch in Carlyss to begin their session.  I loved it!
