Just a few weeks ago I was in Kentucky speaking at the KYPPA Summer School. I always enjoy speaking there because I have some great friends there that I always enjoy spending time with. But also, because it feels a little like home...I went to college at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and after college, I actually lived almost a year in Lexington. So, it's always fun to go there and see how everything has changed over the years.
Anyway, I wanted to share some of the images from the seminar of Little Gracie. I was so touched when I found out how special she is....Her mother, Becky was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago and was told she would not be able to have another child. But as you can see sometimes miracles do happen and our lives are blessed with precious gifts, like Gracie. It was such a moving shoot, the entire crowd was in tears when Becky shared her story. Gracie was a perfect subject and we got some really great photos! Congratulations to parents Becky and Chris and big brother, Jaden.

Wow! I have been having so much fun lately with babies....It seems like almost everyday for the last two months I have photographed a newborn. Here is an announcement I created for cute little Thomas and his parents Jared and Jessica Fox of Proctorville, OH. I have a long history with Jessica and her family. I photographed both her and her sister, Jodi at their weddings and now I am photographing their babies. You may remember Jodi's daughter Isla.... she was the first baby I photographed hanging from a tree. So, we had to do the same for Thomas and it took two trips. Thomas wasn't feeling well the first day and we weren't able to get him calm enough for the cocoon photo, so they had to make the long trip to the studio twice. He was feeling much better atht eh second shoot and the photos turned out awesome! Congrats to Jessica and Jared! Thomas is a beautiful little boy and I look forward to photographing him throughout the year!
