A happy new year!

Happy 2015 all!

I think this is going to be a FABULOUS year! My little family is SUPER excited to be welcoming our newest addition this spring. YAY!!! I will be taking some time off from shooting for a while after, but don’t worry – I will still refer out if you need a summer session :)

I am so excited for the direction ABP is headed! I have found that I absolutely LOVE working with my high schoolers, tweens and hair and makeup artists – it is such a good time every. single. time. It makes my heart happy – big time! There is a certain feeling you get as a photographer when you can show a 17 year old her image on the back of a camera and she can just gasp with excitement. That is extremely fulfilling! I love that feeling!

I have also been blessed by a network of fabulous other senior photographers and mentors that are just SO knowledgeable and kind! I feel extremely lucky to be part of such an amazing group of people and talent! Shout-out to all you guys and gals – Rob, Christina, Robin, Denise and some more that I’m missing! You guys are AH-MAZING!

I have a lot of sessions scheduled for January – mid April and I am SO excited! I have my senior model team shoots over the summer break and I’m just ecstatic about it! I do have a couple of model searches in the works as well… my senior model applications are still going on! If you want to be a part of the ABP Senior Model Honey Hive please email me for login information for the application. I also have a shoot coming up for multiple age groups 15-40+ this spring. Details are being worked on, but watch ABP Facebook and Instagram for information on how to apply :)

That all being said, I am only going to be taking on a limited number of family sessions for the rest of 2015. I will be focusing primarily on my tweens, seniors and editorial work after this year. I am SO excited! I believe this change will make me a better photographer for my clients. Some photographers specialize in events like weddings, others pick newborns, some are amazing with younger kiddos! I believe I have found my niche with the tweens and seniors, found what makes me happiest and where I can serve the most and give 150% every time.

If you are wanting ABP to take your family portrait this fall for holiday photos please let me know by emailing me… I will have a list that will be notified as soon as I open up booking for fall. (August)

Now I’m off to hang out with my family today! I have two tweens to photograph tomorrow! YAY!

Happiness & love to you for 2015!

September Catch Up!

Hello friends!

Happy end of September! The past two months have been very busy – not with photography things but with family things :) If you have contacted me in the past month and I have not gotten back to you please shoot me another email, I am not ignoring you I promise! I have a few model sessions I have to finish editing and I’m working on new packaging as well! SO excited about it! Silly, I know, but it makes me happy :) I should have everything sent by October 1!

My fall season starts this weekend with two sessions! Just as a reminder – I am just about booked for the remainder of the year! My special didn’t make it to Facebook this year! Be sure you sign up for my newsletter so you don’t miss out on the specials!

And because posts without photos are boring here are some cute kids to brighten your Tuesday!
