Aiden and Gracie.

Hi! This is Sheri and I'm thrilled to show a few images I shot of my "great' nephew Aiden and 'great' niece Gracie. Aiden is 7 days fresh -- nice and bendy. He slept through most of the session, which is good. And we only had a couple of minor clean-ups to do! Gracie is 8 months old and such a sweetheart. This was her first photo shoot and she was psyched, however by the end of the session she was so 'over it.' So, with no further ado.....I'd like to introduce to you Gracie and Aiden.

Best of You Boudoir!!!!!!!!

We've been chomping at the bit and the new site is finally online for Best of you Boudoir. Adrienne and Sheri have been working, shooting, editing and having lots of fun. They are handling that aspect of the business so it will be an all female operation. While we were out in Vegas, Adrienne spent a few days working with some of the best boudoir photographers in the world. She brought back some great ideas and a wealth of knowledge. Boudoir is a huge genre of photography and it has slowly been making its way to the Midwest over the past few years, so we are very excited that this is something we can offer our clients. Their tag line says it best "Best of You Boudoir, classy images for the man in your life." A boudoir session makes a great gift for that special guy in your life. We are also working to include a boudoir session in all of our wedding packages, brides keep your eyes out for that one. At any rate help me congratulate Adrienne and Sheri on their new "adventure" and check out the blog and click on the "our website" link at the top to view the website.

Calleigh is 1 year old.

Well not quite yet. We celebrated in the studio a few days early but it was all for good reason. Calleigh, her mom, and her dad all stopped by yesterday for a short little session. Talk about a happy little girl.. She was smiles nearly the entire time and only once did this little cutie even make the slightest little grumble about what we were doing. It was short lived and she was once again back to the smiles. Thanks guys for coming over. We love these images and are certain you will too.

Lindsey's Maternity Session

Ryan and Lindsey came over this weekend and we setup a few shots with them. You might remember them from their wedding we shot last summer. We love these two and the brought another little guy we love a lot too. Nolan came to play with the girls and was nice enough to stop a few times and get his picture taken too. We had a great time visiting with them and hope to get to produce images of little Kenzie when she enters this world. Thanks guys for coming over we wish you the best.

Cara's Matternity Session.

We're still ironing out our workflow and how to best incorporate Sheri's work. With that said it has taken longer than normal for us to get to this post. I mentioned it earlier and actually did get one up from the session. Expect to see more stuff from Sheri soon, hopefully even some of the little one hiding in the belly in the images below. Until then enjoy.

Alex's Senior Session

Alex was over today for her senior session. Talk about a beautiful day! We had sun. We had clouds. We had dead opossums....Wha, What? You'll have to ask her about that one. Anyway, we had a blast and somehow found time to make some beautiful images. Thanks Alex for stopping by, hope you enjoy this preview.

Isabella had her 2 year old session recently. Let me tell you I have one cute little niece. She is always a blast to shoot and this time was no exception. It was so funny to watch her reactions to those chicks. Any way, thanks, Izzy.

Daxyn's 6 mos. session

Daxyn was over recently and he got some alone time with the baby chicks we had. Some might think that a six month old little boy and baby chicks might be a recipe for disaster...although we had a couple of scary moments (well scary for the chicks) I think the images prove that Daxyn had a blast.
