Top Family pictures of the year

Top TEN family pictures of the year!

#10 Here comes the Bride
My Wedding dress was actually my Great Grandmas dress! I saw this idea to take a picture of your daughter wearing your wedding dress. I had to do it! I love her smile in it too!
#9 Birthday Pictures
we were way behind on getting her birthday pictures done but I am glad we waited because they turned out perfect!! still can't believe she's 6!

#8 hug
One day Julia was having a bad day. she had gotten in trouble at school and came home very upset. Belle reached over and gave her sister a big hug!

#7 my favorite part about breast feeding miss Belle was her looking up at me with those eyes. It was like she was telling me thank you for everything you have done for me. I didn't want any pictures of me feeding her but i had to have a picture of her beautiful blue eyes!
#6 Bowling
Julia is something else! she loves to have a good time and doesn't care if people stare at her. I hope she never loses that confidence in herself.
#5 angry lumberjack

Brian bought her this hat. I hated it and so did Belle! but there's something about a naked angry baby that makes me kind of fall in love with the silly hat :)
#4 First Hug
This picture means so much to me!
#3 simple math
I admit i stole this idea but seriously how could i not!
#2 New house!
This past year has been a roller coaster ride for my family. we went from having a plan to everything getting pulled out from under neath us to being the most lucky blessed people in the world! (also my girls and i are decked out in our Africa clothes)
#1 Sisters/Best friends
Miss Belle was beyond mad at me on this day. But mommy was determined to get her 9 month pictures taken. Julia sat down next to her to help me cheer her up and instead of getting Belles pictures done I got a picture of my girls that I will cherish forever!

Top Ten Sessions

I LOVE my job as a photographer! I love meeting new people and hanging out for an hour or so and just taking pictures! It honestly never feels like work for me!
This countdown was hard for me to organize because I have sooo many favorite pictures that I have taken and I still think I am missing some great pictures to post on here! But for now this is my Top Ten Favorite pictures/sessions I have done in the past year!

#10 Carter and Sarah

they are a great couple! I had so much fun walking around downtown Dayton with them scoping out different and odd places to take pictures these were taken in front of 4 different color garage doors! Loved how they were up for my silly ideas and didn't question them :) can't wait till the wedding even if i go in labor I WILL be there :P

#9 Giving Birth!

Yes I had the privilege To be in the room while Brandy was in so much pain and discomfort. I watch how Justin held her hand and encouraged her every step of the way. then I watched how these two people became parents! It was a session I will never forget and can't wait to do again!!!!
#8 My second family
The Martini's are one of my favorite families to take pictures of. They have gotten more picture sessions with me than anyone else! (JP being the most photographed out of all of them) I love how fun they are. We always have a few good laughs and get some great pictures!!
#7 My favorite engaged couple!
Ashely and Travis are so made for each other! little Lucas was such a good sport through out their session. He sat quietly in his stroller the whole time. I talked him into getting in the last picture and it was perfect!
#6 Prom
I LOVED high school!!!! and I LOVED prom!! I wish they would have prom for every age, OK maybe that would be silly, but It was so much fun dressing up and getting your hair done and dancing all night long! I was soo excited to do this before Prom session with Grayson and Jac! His Dad was a little nervous about this picture not only is there kissing but shes sitting on a rental car!! lol no one was hurt thankfully :P

#5 Fall Family
I don't even think I need to explain why I love this picture! Just look at how happy and in love and silly they are and it's all in one picture!

#4 Wedding!
This wedding was so much fun!!!!!Jenna was the perfect Bride and Brian was so excited to marry her he pushed the wedding date up TWICE!!! Jenna had this idea for a picture and I am just so beyond thrilled with the way it turned out!

#3 Senior!
Miss Anna was a dream client! she had tons of ideas and picked out some great locations for her senior pictures to be taken. I felt like we knew each other for a long time and we were just hanging out all day. shes gorgeous and smart and up for any and every thing!

#2 Breaking the law!
This is Ethan, He is one! His momma brought some bubbles to entertain him while i snapped away. I knew the location we were at in the park doesn't allow photographers to take pictures of but I thought lets go anyway :) So as we sat down and got things ready in the corner of my eye I saw a park employee walking up to us to kick us out. I quickly snapped this picture! absolutely perfect!!!!!!
#1 Favorite photo session of the past year belongs to.........
This family (again!) I mean come on! a family of 10 children, mom, dad, and twelve cans of silly string! how can this NOT be my favorite!!!!!!

Post countdown

I like Countdowns. I don't know why but if ever there is a countdown on TV of music videos, embarrassing moments, worst plastic surgery, most fascinating people, or just recap of the year, I have to watch it. So I thought since this is the time where everyone does the countdowns I would do my own!

Today's countdown is the Top Ten Blog post that have been viewed from my blog by you!

Belly shots

Confession: I pretty much had a love/hate relationship with being pregnant! I hated feeling fat and not myself. I hated the uncomfortable sleepless nights. I had to have help doing a lot of simple things like getting groceries out of the car or getting something on a high shelf. It's hard for me to admit when I can't do something and ask for help.

But I loved feeling the baby moving. It was safe from the outside world I was protecting my little one. I never felt alone and in a strange way I felt like I already knew my childs personality and they knew mine. But the other part of pregnancy that I liked was the spike of creativity I got, especially when it came to pregnancy pictures!

Three days after this last one was taken my baby girl was born! and since then I have thought of tons more pregnancy pictures I wished I would had done. so this time around expect more silly, cute, sweet, fun pictures of my belly :)
