The C Family - Lafayette, Indiana Photographer

Monday, November 28, 2011

How was your Thanksgiving Holiday? We hosted a Thanksgiving Dinner for 40 people! We also took a short trip up to Chicago this past weekend too. We had a fun Holiday!

Now onto some pictures!

The C family has asked me to do their family pictures every year that I have been in the area and I love watching their little girls grow up. They are just so sweet!I have been looking all around the Lafayette area for a barn to use and I finally found one! So if you ever want a white or red barn as your backdrop for your session with me, let me know.





Printing Matters!

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Many of my friends and family know that I am a huge Shutterfly.com fan. I love getting my pictures printed through them because I know that I will get them at a good price, but more importantly, I will be getting photos that are printed pretty darn close to what I see on my computer screen.

In the picture below you can see three images.
1. The first image is the digital image of what I see on my computer (or really what you see on your computer).
2. The second image is a print from Shutterfly.com. It is not exactly what I see on screen, but it is pretty darn close. It is just a little bit darker and little bit more blue.
3. The third image (eww...) is from a store that has a photo printing lab in it, but it is NOT a professional printing lab (examples are Wal-mart, Target, Walgreens, etc.,). I am not going to name the company here so as not to embarrass them, but it looks terrible. You can see the difference without me having to go into any detail.

Online places like Shutterfly.com have great deals on their prints all the time, you just need to sign up for their emails. Another great online place to get pictures printed is mpix.com.

My point here is that if you are going to spend the money, PLEASE get your photos printed through a professional printing lab!

p.s. Yes, that is my cute baby girl!



The H Family - Veteran's Home, West Lafayette, Indiana

Monday, November 21, 2011

The H Family asked me to take their pictures at the Veteran's Home and it was so beautiful. Their little boys were having fun running around, doing this made them hungry, so in the last picture you can see them eating!




I love the black and white one!



The W Family - Downtown Lafayette, IN

Monday, November 14, 2011

I love doing pictures of families in downtown Lafayette. There is a variety of colors and backgrounds and I could send a lot of time there doing sessions. I had a fun time with the W family taking pictures and trying to get their little boy to smile with some candy on top of my camera!




The M Family - Downtown Lafayette, IN

Monday, November 7, 2011

I am good friends with the M Family and I love that they asked me to take pictures for them. Isn't their little boy so cute? I loved having the opportunity to walk around downtown Lafayette with them and take their family photos.

C & A 9-10-11 Wedding ~ Houston, Texas Wedding Photographer

Monday, October 3, 2011

In September, I had the opportunity to go to my cousin's wedding in Houston, Texas! The bride and groom were married on 9-10-11 (such a fun date)!
It was so nice to be able to go and take pictures at their wedding and see family. I want to publicly thank them for making it possible so that I could be there and enjoy their special day with them and our family. Also, I want to do a shout to the awesome Christa with Pretty Girl Photography...she was great to work with and it was so nice to have another photographer there at the wedding so that we were able to capture everything!

Here is everyone getting ready for the big day!
