Newborn photography

I wanted to bring up a few things. I updated my website with old and new favorites, so go check it out to you see if you find your pretty faces!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Why not thinking photos instead of candies and flowers, they bring you joy forever ( I know it sounds tacky... but true:))

I am also looking to photograph a proposal. If you know someone out there who wants to capture that moment of so many emotions , PLEASE call me.

Also I am offering 30% off Gallery Wraps for all of you who met with me the past 6 months, you can take advantage of this great offer until February 15. After the 15th, I will also purge all the portraits files from the past 6 months so this is your chance to still place a few orders.

Last Sunday I had the immense joy to photograph a newborn. It had been at least a year since I
had held a tiny little being in my arm. Little Maddox gave me my baby fix. Look at this sweet baby boy. It was so hard to pick just a few to show..

2009 photography

 I hope every one had a healthy and fun holiday break and a good beginning of the year. After so many computer problems I had to change computer and I (well my husband!) opted for a Mac after too many trips to the "computer guy" the past 2 months. I have this divine 24 inch screen, on which my images look amazing!!!!

I have been busy redoing my website with the beautiful people I have photographed in 2008. I have also changed my prices a bit. No increase in the print area and I added some options to purchase digital files for portrait session. From analysing the past year, I realized I LOVED photographing people, meeting new faces , becoming friends with my clients, but I truly DO NOT LIKE working on photoshop and creating cards and so forth which is why I thought I should offer digital files (edited of course), since I am offering them already to wedding clients.

With the New year, I am feeling very creative so I want to offer as what you call "boudoir" session for YOU ladies.... Think Wedding present, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Valentine's Day or just because you are feeling good! I thought it would be fun.

I have also being working on putting a project together that I have called "celebrating life". A few months ago I was privileged to photograph a friend of mine who had cancer, and who unfortunately passed. I saw how she appreciated to see herself looking "healthy and happy" as she wanted to be remembered so I decided to extend it to people I did not know. I will keep everyone updated when I have my brochure together. At the meantime please feel free to contact me if you know someone who might be interested. No charges apply.

On a more cheery note, here is why I LOVE Trader's Joe ( there is one in Short Pump). Those chocolate croissants are even better than the ones in France because they are coming out of a warm oven. So  I have decided to make the monthly trip to Richmond to fill up my freezer.  I have been missing Trader's Joe for the past 13 years when I was living in LA.

Here is an Ice sculpture from my boys experimenting with freezing temperature and glasses.

I don't think I have ever been so talkative on my blog.  On this note,  expect to see some photos next week and a tiny 2 week old baby boy and also a musician in a few weeks.
Stay warm!!!
