Joanna’s Boudoir Session….

25 08 2007

Boudoir photo shoots are really the rage right now. Many “brides to be” present to their husbands a very special gift on their wedding day……a book of her “for his eyes only” pictures.

      
These sessions aren’t only for upcoming brides. They make a great gift for your special someone as an anniversary present, a birthday present, a holiday gift or a “I-don’t-need-an-excuse-to-go-have-a-great-time-and-feel-extra-beautiful-in-front-of-the-camera” gift. Woman are loving it….and so are their men!! 

My pictures are classy, sexy and elegant.  It’s a very relaxed atmosphere and it’s chance for you to be spoiled for a couple of hours.

Joanna is awesome. Though I wouldn’t normally blog from boudoir sessions, Joanna was kind enough to allow me to post some of her pictures to better educate you women out there!! 🙂 I had a real hard time narrowing it down, but since I couldn’t post 50 pictures, here are some of my favorites…and the ones that weren’t strictly “for his eyes only”…

Family pictures for the Gray family…

24 08 2007

I had the fun pleasure of photographing BJ and Sherman’s family this past weekend.  I’ve known BJ for several years now and am blessed to have her in my life.  She watches my girls one morning a week and Johnny and I are thankful that her influence touches their lives.

I could write pages about this family…..Bakari, their son, is one of the most well-mannered, polite boys (he was that way as a toddler!!) that I know, sweet baby Naomi has a smile that lights up the room, BJ is a smart, nice and beautiful woman and Sherman is a father and husband who deeply loves his family.  That is a very brief description….

Here is the beautiful family…

Kat and John are two of those people that you start talking with and feel like you’re old friends.  I really enjoyed meeting and talking with them the first time we got together and was looking forward to working with them…..and they did not disappoint!  Check them out….

We started at Kat’s house…..

“Game Over” guy is Nathan.  He and his wife, Jessica were just married the day before!!! Congrats you two!  Thanks for joining us for a moment.  🙂

As I left to head home, I passed some awesome brick walls and the late afternoon light was fantastic. I gave Kat and John a quick call to see if they had anything left in them and of course, they did….I picked them up and we took a couple more pictures….
