About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul/Daddy. He loves his little girls, wife and family more than anything in the world. Velvet (aka MaMa Velvet or Mommy). I'm a photographer and very happy stay at home Mom who can't get enough time with my little ones! Lily (aka Monster or Princess). She's our 12 year old smart, talkative, beautiful young woman who is impressing us everyday! Addison (aka Doo or Addi). She's 9, artistic, sensitive, lovely young lady who has a quick sense of humor! Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters! She's incredibly smart and uses sign language to communicate most of her needs until she learns to use her big girl words. We are loving on her with every ounce of our being!

Don't Squash The Creativity!

Being in the photography business has been a complete blessing for my family and I.

It's always been something I loved to do and it's wonderful that it has allowed me to stay home with my babies!

The only downside to the whole process is the amount of time it takes for editing large photoshoots.  Don't get me wrong it doesn't take copious amounts of time away from my family but the girls don't necessarily like when I have to spend an hour or two a day infront of the computer.

I was recently bored with editing one of my last photoshoots and needed a small break before finishing it up for the day.  I ended up going through some old photos I'd taken of my best friend Naomi while she was here on vacation.

I found this lovely photo of her and edited it to my hearts content...

She's so photogenic.

I then called Lily up onto my lap.

I asked her if there would be anything else I could do to this photo to possibly make it better.  She had free reign to do with it what she would and make it as fantastic as possible.  Sometimes my creativity feels like it's drying up and I just need an outside opinion.

Lily's creativity never dries up...

It flows freely with no reserve.

I think I prefer her photo :)
