Summer Deals!!! { June and July 2015 }

HEY guys!

Okay, so it’s been nuts around here. We will just say that. It’s in a good way, but crazzzzzzy nonetheless! SO I decided it would be best to Blog a few things about the next couple months, and announce the new Deals going on right now!! They are a couple days late, but cover 2 months time, so we have some wiggle room! Here they are, and for FULL details on what is included with the STUDIO DEAL plan…it’s all in the Shoppe when you log in and click on Baby Plans! ….but you get FIVE sessions, 5 prints, a 5×7 tin and wallet tin aaaaaaaaaaaaaand digital images with each session – HOLLA! such a fun deal, but it’s only lasting June and July so if you like it, grab it now before it’s gone. I can’t promise it will ever be offered again! Will just depend on popularity and well, time. HA!

ALSO, I’m on vacation Starting JUNE 24th, all the way through July 6th, 2015, I’ll be back July 7th!  ….However, if you have a newborn due don’t stress, I will SHOOT around vacation plans, but editing will be on hold until I’m back at it July 7th!

Also, HIGHLY considering round one of FALL BARN mini sessions the last Saturday in August…August 29th. For 2 reasons! You know I loooove Barn Mini sessions and this year we have corn around the barn, I want that in our images! Plus it gives us more wiggle room for raindates because you all know how Fall is crazy busy. SO if you guys are considering a BARN MINI SESSION this year, you might wanna get with me for the 29th, as there will be limited spots! ($200-$300 exactly like 2014 if you came out!)

Anywho, here are the deals and thanks all for being SO awesome! xoxo!! ~Shell

An amazing family! ♥

Hey guys!

So you all know, newborns, babies and children are my *thing*, but last weekend I had the honor of working with an awesome family! They had family in town and it just all ended up working out perfectly for me to be able to shoot for them! I’m so sentimental, I completely understand how important these memories are, not to mention how rare they are an option as our families grow and expand ♥♥♥.  They were nothing short of amazing to work with. Everyone was so kind and so easy to work with, it truly was my pleasure!

I always try and narrow it down to 4 for a preview, but it was impossible so I got it to SIX, so that’s pretty close!! When so many people are involved I wanted to show a little bit of everything, but save SOME as a surprise for the gallery! Hope you guys like your little preview…there are SO many more to come!!

(BTW, The group shots were AWESOME, but it was impossible to make them square crop without cutting some people out, so those will be a surprise 😉 )

Hope you guys have a great week!! ~Shellie

The pictures look great. They are wonderful memories for your family.

My Matthew!

SO, here I sit, and a FANTASTIC Friday night. Empty house, all my men away for several hours. Shooting a session here in about an hour, in the glorious weather that is upon us today. iTunes blasting as loud as my speakers will go, some of my current favorite songs, singing my little heart out and editing MY baby’s 5 year pictures we shot last night…simply because I want too ♥♥

This boy, he came into our lives and within a twinkling of a second had our hearts. I had to share a few as I sit here, staring at his adorable face! Decided to go with a super hero theme, because the “standard procedure” session thing just doesn’t work to great on a photographers kid after it’s been done 87 bazllion times. Oh and he kinda losing his focus and attention in 5 seconds, like his momma 😉 Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, folks ♥

Played with some new editing, always nice shooting my kids, I don’t are if I mess it up, so it gives me ultimate freedom. Freedom is always good for me. Can’t use this location much, so when I get too my artist heart screams a million cries of *SWEET GLORY, I LOVE IT HERE* Ha!!

Enjoy my little super hero FIVE year old. I sure am.
