It’s that time! Most spots are filled, so hurry and add your name to my calendar quickly. These mini-sessions are offered seasonally, and are a great way to capture some updated images of the kids at play or that great family shot to blow up as a canvas print on your family room wall.

sweet as can be

Are these two of the sweetest girls you have ever seen? They are just as darling in person. Great personalities and true charm. It’s because their mommy is so stinkin’ adorable! I’m sure of it. (Dad is very cool, too.) I used to get to see them almost daily, and I’ve missed them. This visit did me good.

Giggles.

This really fun family enjoyed a beautiful afternoon session which included two locations: the beach and their home. Daddy was crazy-good at getting these two littles to giggle, giggle, giggle! I’m looking forward to another upcoming session over Christmas which will include their extended family. It’s so fun to work with really great people.

Sweet Siblings

These sweet siblings scheduled a fun day at the beach, and I was so happy to be able to capture some of their togetherness. They tossed rocks in the water, swung upside down from tree branches, and had a great time in the sand. Grandma scheduled this session, and included two cousins (to be posted soon!). Such a great family!

One of the Sweetest Families in Town

They really are one of the sweetest families in town! So glad to have met them through school and sporting activities this year. Great family and fabulous dog. I love for my clients to bring the family pup along for their session! These sweet kids will never be this age again – so glad we captured this moment in time.

This young man used to be a little tiny boy I held in my arms. His mama is my lifelong friend, and I’ve had the pleasure of watching him grow up. I’m so very proud of who he is today, and had a lot of fun spending time with him the other day. We began at GHHS, moved to the family farm, and finished at the beach with dear Maya (the family dog). Great locations + a fabulous guy + some expert reflector-holding by Mama = a fun senior session! Have a great senior year, Reese! You are loved.

This is the perfect time to book your senior session, Class of 2014! Summer sun, and you’ll be so glad you’re not rushing to get photos schedule in the spring. www.SunrisePhotoGH.com

My Own

To have all seven of the cousins [on Papa & Grammy’s side] all to myself at the beach for a few hours made me a happy picture-taking-auntie! Special thanks to sis Amy for allowing me to dress her kids as I pleased, and to sis Elizabeth for doing some last minute shopping [OK, a lot of last minute shopping] to accommodate my wishes. I love the color scheme results, and the sweet faces on these cousins. [Shhhh . . . don’t tell Grammy. We printed a canvas for her upcoming August birthday gift!]

Such a joyfully family, full of big love! Right away, I could tell that this gorgeous little boy was the apple of his parents’ eyes. They were fun, casual, B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L, and so very cool to work with. So glad we got to spend this time together, capturing meaningful forever memories . . . because this little guy will never be this age again . . .

Casual Beach Headshots

Like so many others, this client wanted casual headshots at her favorite place: the beach. Clients are using these images for several purposes; but, largely for social media sites such as LinkedIn. The images you put forth says a lot about you, and it is often the first impression others have of you. Be sure your headshots / profile photos are fresh and up to date. These sessions are quick and easy, and I usually email the images within 24 hours.
