Hi Katie,
I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your work with your husband. I had a question for you about getting your photos tack sharpe. Do you use presets for Lightroom or Photoshop?
Thanks,
Scott

Back to work.  I  promised Kate that I would post her cute little Audrey.  She flew in from CA just to get Audrey’s picts taken.  Amazingly she lasted through quite a few outfit changes.  So glad for moms sake:)  Isn’t she adorable!

Hawaii

Sorry I have been such a slacker on the blog,  and thanks for everyone’s patience on waiting for your pictures!  We had such a blast visiting grandma Moss in Hawaii, I’m glad she lives out there to finally get us out there!  My grandma is from Hawaii and while my grandpa was stationed at pearl harbor during WII he met and fell in love with her there.  Dan’s mom has had a lot of history in Hawaii especially with the PCC, it was so much fun seeing her there in her element.  Besides the speed limit and the over-priced Mountain Dew, we would love to live there.

Of course had to do a few product shots while we were there.  The headbands are from: www.etsy.com/shop/jadegal520 and of course the necklaces are from: www.miamoodesigns.bigcartel.com/

Got these cute swim suits from www.sassybabies.com

I asked Lu if she make some kites for the girls to play with on the beach and of course they turned out amazing!  You da best!

 
Nicole 

I absolutely love your pics and color combos! What brand is the dress Olivia is wearing from Nordstrom? I absolutely love!

Jordyn 

These pictures are amazing. I especially love the one of your oldest daughter split jumping on the beach. I am a photographer too. I’m definitively not as good as you though.I just barely started. But I am so very jealous that your kids will be in so many pictures. My son runs away every time I pull my camera out.He is so tired of taking pictures.My daughter is better about taking pictures but even she still has to be in the picture taking mood. By the way my daughter’s name is Lyla too! I may have already commented about that a while ago. Any how…wonderful photos, really. As a new photographer I love coming here for ideas! :)

Beautiful pictures! About the clothing, I am sure you find that as your daughter gets older, it gets soooo hard finding age appropriate clothing! My daughter is 10 but wears a size 12, and it is awful trying to find decent clothes. JCrew has been our go to for dresses. I just wish more companies would make clothing for these age girls!

Hi Krystal- The yellow swimsuit is actually romper that I got the lame place as the headbands. http://www.etsy.com/shop/jadegal520
Mya’s dress is from mini boden, olivia’s is from Nordstroms and Lylas is Matilda Jane. The maxi dresses are from my FAVORITE new store http://www.nextdirect.com
The orange bikini is from jcrew. I know I have a little shopping problem:) Its a rite off though right? The camera’s are just from amazon. Swim caps are from http://www.headcovers.com/
We mainly used the Nikor 70-200 2.8. I think that is everything.
Marissa, I will totally come with you on your next vacation, if you come on my next one:)

 ( Jun 9th, 2011 8:33 pm)

I love them! You do such an amazing job! Would you mind telling we where you got your girls yellow swimsuit and your girls dresses that they are wearing in the family picture. You not only take beautiful pictures but have a talent for clothing as well!

cole

I had the opportunity to photograph this special little guy.  He has sure gone through a lot in his 2.5 years old life.  www.beatingepilepsy.blogspot.com If any of  you would  like to donate or help in any way I’m sure it would help them a lot:)

My name is Cole. I am 2 years old. I was a healthy little boy…pointing, saying mama & dada and waving…until 10 months old when I suddenly developed “A-tonic drop seizures” in August 2009. My world suddenly changed as I had 100′s of seizures a day. After I started having seizures, my brain couldn’t keep up and I was diagnosed with severe brain disorder called “Epileptic Encphalothopy” and started regressing developmentally….I stopped pointing, waving & saying mama & dada. I don’t talk anymore…and I get frustrated so I cry a lot. I am developmentally a 10 month old & a 20 month old motor wise…but I am really 2. I started the Ketogenic Diet in 2010-2011, it helped 75% of my seizures…I was a trooper and was on it for 1 year. I am now taking Keppra, Zonegran & Topamax (currently weaning). I’ve also been diagnosed with “Irretactable Epilepsy” meaning that my seizures are being treated, but they aren’t stopping. Doctors call me a “complicated” case and don’t know how to help me. As of February 22, 2011…I went to the Cleveland Clinic & amazing drs found out the left side of my temporal & occipital lobe are malformed. This happens in utero and is a genetic mutation. I’ve had some genetics test done, but so far they can’t find the mutated gene…we are praying they will, so I can know if my future brothers and sisters will be at risk. I will be getting surgery sometime in May to remove my left temporal & occipital lobes to HOPEFULLY stop my seizures and help my brain to re-route it’s self so I can learn. I will be going Ohio for about 1 1/2 months to recovery & go through therapy. I will go back to Ohio again, 6 months after my surgery too see how I am doing. My dr. says Brain Surgery is a “leap of faith”, because you never know the out come.

 
Meghan 

One of my good friends, who is 17 just had this same surgery and hasn’t had a seizure in almost two months. Praying for the same results for this sweet boy.
