Angie & Ryker

This is my beautiful aunt and her son Ryker. They are seriously the cutest mom and son I have ever seen. We had so much fun finding places to take the photos, and I loved all the different out fits and themes that she brought for Ryker to wear.

Jake & Jenessa Full Post

 It's taken me way too long to post this, but here is the full post of some of my two favorite people. This is my cousin Jenessa and her husband Jake. They are so fun and cute together, and I adore them a whole lot. 
They were a blast to take photos of and I think they turned out great!

Oran's Headshots Re-Visited

I recently re-visited my husband's head shots. I only edited three originally, but as I went through the 74 or so photos I actually took I thought it might be fun to do a little editing on more. I really loved the results as well.
Anyway, here are the rest of the photos of my biggest supporter.

I have so many photos to post to this blog, and haven't found very much time. Between my day job, and my photography business it is hard to keep up with things like that. Don't worry I'll get better. 
I have so many plans and dreams for the future, and since 2012 is right around the corner, I decided it is time to make some goals to reach this dream of mine. 
I have loved photography since I was a little girl. I never thought I'd actually end up wanting to do it as a career choice though. It was probably the furthest thing from my mind. When I started actually doing photo shoots my senior year of high school, my love and passion for this grew more and more. Now I'm here light years away from where I was in high school, and I know that this is what I want to be doing. It's all just a matter of getting there.
So here are some goals I have for myself:
-Legalize the business
-Attain more props
-Have a legitimate website
-Raise my prices. I realize this goal may not sound good to some, but the raise wouldn't be very much. I need to raise them though if I want this to be worth the amount of time I put into it. I put so much time and love into my photography, and only those who are photographers could really know how much time is put into a photo shoot.
-Have custom CD cases for all of your images
-Be able to go to bridal fairs
-Give you a video with music to all images (this is mostly for couples, weddings, etc.)
-Master my new Photo Shop Elements
-Purchase more lenses(this one might take the longest to achieve)
-Put out adds

I'm sure there will be more that I will think of, but for now this looks good. I'm so inspired, and ready to start this dream of mine. It may be strange to all of you that I put down these goals on the blog, but I put them to show you how hard I'm willing to work to get to where I want to be. 
I may not be the girl who has ever had a significant amount of self confidence, but with this I believe in myself. I think that is one of the first steps to reaching your dreams; believing in yourself. 
So whether you want to do photography, be a professional dancer, football player, or doctor, the first thing you need is to believe in yourself. 
I'm ready.

New Watermark

If you follow my blog or facebook, I'm sure you've noticed I have a new watermark. (As you can see in my header.) My wonderful husband worked so hard to create this watermark for me. It's so nice to finally have an official one, instead of just aimlessly adding some to my photos. This way I can give my photos a little more protection, and have a cute logo to boot. 

Here are a few examples of the new watermark:

I'm making tons of new changes to my blog, so keep checking in to find out what I've done. I've also been setting up a proof website for your viewing pleasure.
Thanks everyone who's been helping make my photography dreams come true! I owe you all so much.

Wedding Post Preview (Longest one ever)

This may be the longest preview post ever... but I'm not even close to done and there were so many beautiful photos. This was an absolutely gorgeous couple, and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to photograph them.
