minnesota mini sessions: part two

It was deja vu.  The weather app told me to expect a beautiful day so I cancelled the backup studio location.  I should have known better after day one.  Yes, once again… the rain didn’t turn into sunshine, as forecasted. But, once again, my clients rocked it.  No one complained as I did my best...

minnesota mini sessions: part one

I refreshed & refreshed & refreshed my weather app for days.  Praying the storm clouds would magically disappear from Saturday’s forecast.  When they didn’t, I booked a studio and was devastated that I’d flown all the way to Minnesota, timed my trip with peak fall colors, only to take photos inside a studio. As I...

happy halloween!

I grew up in a haunted house.  Well, not really.  What I mean is that my mom is the Queen of Halloween.  [If you have a minute, that article has tons of great photos of my mom’s Halloween decor- it’s seriously impressive.] And while I didn’t fully inherit her love of decorating for Halloween [we...

maddie

I got to meet this sweet family during my brief trip to Minnesota earlier this month.  Maddie used to live next door to Addison & Ella, who I have been photographing for three years now [photos of them from my MN mini sessions… coming to the blog soon!] BOTH of my mini session days were...

pumpkins & apples

Oh, fall.  You’re perfection.  I love the cooler temperatures.  The changing leaves.  The chunky sweaters & boots.  The warm apple cider.  My favorite time of the year.  This is my first fall in the Pacific Northwest and I wasn’t sure if it would live up to the Midwest… but the good news is that it...

This family… OH, THIS SWEET FAMILY! They were the winners of my Seattle photo session giveaway almost three months ago [three months!! how has it already been three months since we moved here?!]  And they came to visit me in West Seattle for a fun-filled evening.  Here are a few of the highlights from our simple...

and the cutest costume is….

Oh, those chubby cheeks and pouty lips… it’s no wonder the pig in a blanket got 262 votes! And it’s not too late to reserve a Spooky Mini Session for your cutie-in-costume! But hurry because there are only TWO SPOTS LEFT! [email me to hold one!]

CUTE.   This family is just full of CUTE.  This post contains all kinds of CUTE. Like probably more than what’s considered a healthy dose. I met Neyssa through a local photographer group.  She mentioned that her daughter, Sawyer, was about to celebrate her first birthday and that they wanted updated family photos.  Since Colin...

halloween mini sessions & a cutest costume contest

[I think so!] Email me to book a mini session [and receive $5 off for referring a friend!]. Here are the details:   ENTER...

my new packaging!

I fall more & more in love with my new branding every single day.  Kayd really designed something that fits me… perfectly! Over the last few weeks I’ve been pulling together my packaging components.  The biggest change for me is converting from using CDs/DVDs for digital files to using personalized USB drives.  The main reason...

mackenzie’s baptism

Mackenzie was my very first inquiry since moving to Seattle a few weeks ago and launching my new site.  I was giddy when I got her message.  Someone found my new site!  Someone in Seattle wants to hire me! But more than that… has God ever spoken to you in a way that’s so obvious that it gives you...

liam’s nursery

I met Candice last summer.  Both of our husbands were in Notre Dame’s MBA program and both of us were very much pregnant.  It was an instant comfort to find someone who could understand everything I was going through: the random leg cramps in the middle of the night…  sobriety at football tailgates… staying warm in...

garrett & leah

We were only in Minneapolis for less than a week, but I was hoping I’d be able to connect with a few past clients. So when Leah & Garrett’s mom reached out, I was thrilled. This was my third time photographing her adorable kids and it’s amazing how much they’ve grown up. When I first...

minnesota mini sessions!

I love fall in Minnesota.  The beautiful red & orange leaves on the trees.  The brisk breeze and temperatures that are true perfection. Unearthing the warm sweaters that have been waiting so patiently in the back of the closet.  [and living in denial that below zero temps & ninety inches of cumulative snowfall are around...

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the ‘share to win’ contest! It meant a lot to see my website popping up on the facebook newsfeed, being shared by friends & family. Virtual hugs to all of you. I asked my assistant to handle the drawing. He turns 8 months old tomorrow and...

tips for taking better iphone photos

Lately, I’ve been sharing a lot of iPhone photos in my blog posts. While I obviously love taking photos with my ‘big camera’ [a Canon 5d mark iii], sometimes it’s just not convenient. The photographer in me has become a bit of a photo snob though [at least I can admit it] and I am...

five ways to take better photos of your kids

It was the middle of a photoshoot with two adorably energetic little boys. I looked at the back of my camera and immediately exclaimed “YES! THAT PHOTO IS PERFECT!” (in my head, so as not to scare the children). I knew the image was a keeper so I flashed my camera for mom & dad...

HI, I’M MISS FREDDY.

 

Actually, my name is Casey. As a newborn I resembled Fred Flintstone so my parents nicknamed me Freddy and it stuck.
