Mia | Portraits

Well, this has got to be one of the most adorable shoots I've ever had! Although I shot this in Pennslyvania over the summer, I've neglected to blog it until now! And I honestly don't know why, these pictures are so, so, so, CUTE :) I love every last one of them, and in saying that I couldn't choose which ones to blog I just liked them all! Looking through these pictures I honestly just love photographing children, because they are just purely themselves, in these of Mia on the swing, she could have cared less that I was shooting her. As I feel like I captured her laughter, her smile, the most adorable little girl that she is :) Although I guess, it's not always that easy, because in the beginning Mia wasn't digging my camera too much, but once you get them going they are merely themselves. And I love capturing people that are "themselves" because I want your images to be all about you, and if your not yourself they who are these pictures of? You see what I'm saying.. I hope I'm making sense! Just don't be afraid to be yourself, okay, got it, good! :) I hope you guys enjoy these as much as I do because this group has got to be my favorite batch of pictures! Check back until next time.. I'm shooting a couple this weekend, so look forward to that. And also a big step for business has come into play! New online viewing and ordering galleries for my clients! Check it out here @ http://www.whitneyb.smugmug.com/ and order a print or two :) If you have a session up please feel free to email me to get your password! Have a great Friday! Now enjoy:)

She is too precious!

Isn't she just beautiful :)


Laughter is my favorite. How can you not smile when you look at this?:)

I love this series, her beauty shines!


I absolutely love this image. Favorite. Favorite. Favorite. Period.

Okay so this ^ means I have absolutely too many favorites. How cute is she? She loved this flower, such a cute moment!

Her smile is contagious isn't it!?

I felt this picture stood beautifully on its own as well as in the group.
That's all for now, check back early next week for my couple session! Have a great Friday & weekend:)

Gabbi & Friends' Session - "Girls just wanna have fun"

Okay, SO this has got to be one of the most fun sessions I've ever shot. "Girls just wanna have fun", completely explains this shoot. Period. These girls were giggly, CRAZY, & just overall fun. You see, it was Gabbi's birthday so she decided she wanted to do a shoot with her & her friends and I was there to do just that :) They all just started high school & you can tell they are all just loving life. When a bunch of girls get together there is just no stopping them from having tons of fun, and that's exactly what we did! These images have got to be some of my overall favorite! So take a look and enjoy :) And leave a comment or two!

So I totally set this up, & was so happy it turned out :) These girls are all on a volleyball team together so what better place to shoot than with a volleyball net in the background!?
So I've come to terms that I really liked this photo above, after already blogging, but I decided to just add it in :) SO, if you looked at this earlier that is why it wasn't here before! Need-less to say I absolutely love this image!
These shots were so much fun! I love how all their faces change from time to time :)



Can you say, RAWR. This was perfect with the dinosaur and everything, gotta love it!
Getting ready for my next idea, which was such a great one! Absolutely love these images :)

Ballerinas :) Love these semi- silhouette pictures!

Hearts & peace :)

Lastly jumping :) My absolute favorite! Gotta save the best for last!

That's all for now, but look forward to a session with little Mia I shot in Pennslyvania over the summer that I've neglected to blog! And I also have a couple's session lined up in the next two weeks :)

Luca's 4th Birthday!

So, I shot Luca's 4th Birthday party about three weeks ago, and it was seriously the cutest birthday party I've ever been to! It was themed as Pirate Underwater, oh it was so fun! Lisa, Luca's mom set up a bunch of fun games for the kids, there was swimming, pirate cookies, pizza, & lastly a yummy pirate icecream cake! Everyone had so much fun, including myself while I got to photograph it :) Here's the bulk of my many, many favorites from the day! Enjoy :)

Birthday details :) Some great ideas! So cute!

Birthday boy!

Swimming.

Waiting to start the game!

Isn't she just adorable!?
Thumbs up :) So cute!
Mom, Dad, Luca, & Mateo :)

Sydney's 1st Birthday & Baptism

So nearly about 3 weekends ago I shot Sydney's adorable 1st birthday party & beautiful baptism ceremony. Her birthday was so much fun with all the little kids running around. And her baptism ceremony was really touching, watching all the family gather together, & I felt so honored for them to let me capture this special event in their lives, after all this was the first time I had met any of them except for the immediate family. Which would be Sydney, Mom -Jenny, Dad - John & big sister Ellie. They are an adorable family and I'm so glad I got to capture this event. Sydney has got to be the most adorable 1 year old ever! And her big sister Ellie is just as cute! I hope you enjoy this post as much as I did capturing it! Tell me what you think :)

Birthday details!


Adorable birthday girl :)

Syd :)


Sadie & Ellie, best friends :) Seriously how cute is this!?

Okay so every kid there loved jumping in this big pile of balls! Who didn't love these when they were a kid!? It was really cute. And actually this shot is of my cousin Sadie.


Everyone was having fun!


Pizza time!

Sneak Peek.

Well blog readers, I've created this little sneak peek for you of Sydney's 1st Birthday Party that I shot about a week & a half ago. Sorry for the NO blog posts for a week, but just to keep you informed my birthday went well as did my first week of college :) I got a MACBOOK PRO! So therefore it's a little bit of switching over, so sorry I've had little time to blog lately. I also shot another birthday party just this past weekend... Luca's 4th :) So look forward to those, & this lovely upcoming Labor Day weekend I am taking off on a roadtrip to LA, California so I'm sure I will shoot plently while I'm there :) More images of this session will be coming soon, enjoy!
