This story is so special. I don’t always get to do the maternity session, hospital session, and finally, newborn session. I got to this time. And, now, I wish I could every time. Mom and dad were so concerned about being in front of the camera, but I think they were absolutely wonderful to photograph. When you love and care for one another, it shows, and these images are just so full and complete. So sweet to see this lady in her momma and dad’s arms! Both work so very hard, so glad we got to capture the quiet.

Thanks so very much for allowing me to capture it all, and I cannot wait to tell more of your story as a family!!!! Thank you, thank you!

I love working with nurses. I know a lot of you, and you are seriously all the kindest, warmest people. This momma helps safely bring babies into this world, and it was awesome to hear her describe her own experience, which got a little bit hectic at times, but resulted in the sweetest, tiny little guy. He wasn’t a huge fan of being away from mom or dad for very long, but no problem at all. I love capturing the cuddles, the hugs and smiles, the laughter. When it boils down to it, newborns are unpredictable, right? They don’t care about our photo session—they just want to eat. And be loved. And sleep.

I think we captured a beautiful story to share with him when he is old enough to appreciate it. Thanks so much, Mom & Dad, for allowing me into your home to capture these moments. Congrats to you both, hope you’re getting lots of sleep, and can’t wait to work with you again in the future.

Hi Friends!!!! Just a super quick note to outline my referral program for you, my lovely current clients.

2017-07-27_0013.jpg

SOOOO, it’s about that time. Everyone is tired of Summer. The pumpkin everything teasers have begun on Facebook. Usually, coinciding with this time, clients start popping in to secure dates for their yearly Fall sessions.

2017-07-27_0021.jpg

I’m ready for this to be the biggest and best Fall ever.

2017-07-27_0011.jpg

You all know about my referral program, right?

2017-07-27_0003.jpg

It’s super simple. If you refer a client, and they book a session, you get $25 off your next session with me, with no limit on your bonuses. Pretty great, right? I definitely have families that get upwards of $75-$100 each year for simply referring friends and relatives my way.

2017-07-27_0102.jpg

Through the years, I have had the pleasure of working with so many friends of clients, and it is an absolute privilege to know you all!

2017-07-27_0122.jpg

So, I guess what I’m saying is, let’s take some dollars of your session fees this Fall!

2017-07-27_0156.jpg

And, if you have referred families, be sure you don’t forget to mention them upon booking your next session!

2017-07-27_0193.jpg

Anyway, that’s it for now! Keep those requests coming in, there are still some prime spots available and up for grabs!

And as always, thanks so much for supporting my little business! —Becky

 

Hi, friends. I’m still around, though July is usually my mass exodus from home. It’s so difficult having basically every single family member live 14+hours away. Even more difficult with two kiddos in school. So, our Julys are usually spent reconnecting with cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and college friends.

This trip, we had the amazing opportunity to spend a few days with my husband’s family at Hawk’s Landing Resort, near Camdenton, MO. It was a little bit like a trip back in time. Think little cabins on a lake, no frills, fun little playground, pool, fishing, boating, arcade games, and family meals made in tiny little kitchens.

This is the type of work I absolutely love, laid back, no pressure—just life as it’s happening. I also got to play with a new toy that I hope to use throughout my Fall season. You’ll notice a fisheye effect in several of these pics, which adds interest, but also allows for a bit of dramatic flair. I purchased a Sigma 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens before the trip, as I know there is a learning curve to perfecting fisheye images.

So, enjoy these. And cling to these summer days that we have left. If you are interested in capturing your little family on a lake adventure or simply in your own backyard, I will be offering discounted Backyard sessions through the end of August!

Oh, and side note. When did my babies get so big? I spent so much time on this trip just staring at them, wide-eyed and crazy-like I’m sure. My sweet girl is becoming a little lady, with strength and confidence, and she is not afraid to do anything. Henry is definitely such a middle child, though I fight so hard to avoid those oversights. He’s sensitive and he’s nervous, but he absolutely conquered the pool this trip, and I could not be prouder of that kid. And, my baby. So much attitude, it is absolutely out of control. But, these little faces, his eyes, his cheeks and baby chunk. I could not be more in love with that baby, even if he decided not to sleep all weekend.

Mommas ramble, that’s what we do. This momma heart is so full.
