One year later...

Wow, it's almost been an entire year since I've blogged! Yikes! A whole lot has happened in the last year. First, my family and I moved to Puerto Rico! And second, we added another sweet baby to our home!

It's all been very fun and exciting.  And while living in Puerto Rico sounds exciting and exotic, it hasn't been quite as tropical and romantic as we imagined. We live in a very typical Puerto Rican cement home in the middle of the city of San Juan. We don't have AC in the main part of our home, and in the land of eternal summer, that can get pretty miserable. We do, however, get to visit gorgeous beaches frequently, and are currently loving our cooler winter weather (think low to mid 80's and relatively low humidity--so not cool, but cool for Puerto Rico!). I honestly have been absolutely loving my time here in Puerto Rico.  Despite the profuse sweating and over abundance of bugs, I have been loving our little family adventure.  And of course, we adore our sweet baby girl, Ophelia. She has been such a treasure for our family.  She is currently 3.5 months old and has been a little angel all 3.5 of those months.  She sleeps like a champ, nurses great, is so chunky, and has started laughing a ton.  All of us are completely smitten by her!

I have so many photos to catch up on, but for now I'm going to advertise for Valentine's Day Mini Sessions.  We live close to Old San Juan, which is one of my favorite parts of this island.  The colorful buildings and cobblestone streets light my creative brain on fire! It's so fun and bright and I could just explore it all day long!  So this Saturday, what better place to take Valentine's Day Minis than against one of their pink or red walls? 

Here is all of the info you'll need:

Date: Saturday, February 11, 2017
Where: Old San Juan (precise location will be sent via pin drop!)
When: 9, 9:30, 10, 10:30
Who: this is for couples OR children--that's right, if you want photos with you and your sweetheart, now is the time! This is the first time I've opened minis for couples, so take advantage!
Cost:$75, 7 images of your choice with the rest available for purchase on an online gallery

That's it! I have very limited sessions and have one already taken! So only 3 slots left.  Grab it up quick!


 

Easter Minis

I had so much fun with my minis this morning at the Pink House.  I'm telling you, kids are the absolute best to photograph! So many smiles and giggles! I loved working with these cuties!

Easter/Spring Mini Sessions

Easter is THIS MONTH!  Easter is one of my absolute favorite holidays!  The celebration of Christ's atonement, the beginning of Spring with all of its flowers,  pastel colors and adorable children in adorable outfits--what's not to love?

I also love Easter because it means I get to see your kids dressed up and photograph them in their Easter best!  So here are all of the details:

When: Saturday, March 19th (sessions available starting 9 AM)
Where: The Pink House (YOU GUYS! This place is adorable! It's a hair studio converted from the cutest pink house in downtown Lenoir and all of the hair stations are vintage vanities! WHAT?? Yes, for real.  And the light in the room I rent is out of this world.)
Cost: $99 plus tax
Props: A variety of banners and props are available for you to choose for your little one's photos. From flower crowns to pastel eggs, I've got quite a variety!
Fine Print: Due to limited studio space, I cannot accommodate more than 4 siblings at once. All children have to be older than 3 months. If you have an older sibling that can comfortably hold the little one exceptions can be made. No family pictures will be taken during that time. No outfit changes.

There you go! Contact me ASAP to snag your session! I cannot wait to photograph your little boys in bowties and little girls in frilly dresses!

Snyder Kids {Granite Falls, NC}

Last week before the big snow storm I got together with my good friend (and Zumba instructor! Whoop!) Dana and her kids to take some fun photos.  I looove the way they turned out.  Aren't they such beautiful children?? I cannot stop thinking about how cute they all look in their photos!   And I thought it would be fun to make a few Valentine's appropriate;).  I mean, you can't go wrong with heart and arrow bokeh, am I right??

Speaking of Valentine's Day photos, don't forget about my Vday minis coming up on February 6th!  Be sure to book your spot ASAP because spots are going fast!

 

These last photos of Dana--isn't she such a babe? And she looks killer in orange!  Did you know she and her family run a farm? They sell their (delicious!) meat that you absolutely have to buy if you live anywhere near Granite Falls, NC.  Be sure to check out Snyder Family Farm on facebook! Thanks again, girl for letting me photograph you and your kids!!
