The D. Family Preview

So it's been a long time a-coming but here is a little sneak peek at one of my last shoots of the year.  I am so thankful to each family that I have had the opportunity to shoot so far.  I had a late start up for Chasing J Bird Photography this year, but it has been such a rewarding experience.  I hope 2012 is full of exciting, creative adventures for us.  I can't wait.  So here you go, another sneak peek.

The K. Family | Sneak Peek

I loved everything about working with these sweeties.  First, they are friends that trusted me with their photos, so that means so much to me.  Second, how can you not love them?  They are all gorgeous and I loved the colors they wore for the shoot. It was a gorgeous day and it made those colors just pop.  I loved it.  And finally, I loved watching the little ones just being kids.  I brought my J Bird along and found out she's a valuable tool when children are around.  I'll need to keep that a secret before she requests some sort of payment.

Here is a sneak peek of that colorful, happy, gorgeous shoot.  I hope we can do it again!

This last one is probably my favorite shot.  The little one had just let out a huge sneeze and everyone was giggling.  At first I considered it a blooper shot, but I can't help but love it!

The C. Family | Sneak Peek

What a beautiful day for photos this day turned out to be and I have to say I got my workout in chasing this adorable little two year old around.  Little B. was so stinkin' cute in his cowboy chaps, spurs and hat.  Can you believe that at two he is already a champion roper?  The funny thing is that he refused to rope for us that day.  Oh well, it's a great excuse to come back someday and shoot some more photos.  I just loved the area and the C. family was so sweet.  I hope they enjoy the few sneak peeks at their photo shoot.

Chasing J Bird Photography is Official!

I'm so excited to say that the Chasing J Bird Photography website is finally live and ready!  I hope ya'll visit it at and also visit us on our Facebook page.  Although I will have very few sessions available for these last few months of the year, I am excited to get started.  Check out the website for information on session discounts and other promotions that are available only for a limited time.

On a different note, we adopted our newest family member in August.  Her name is Lola and she's a Lab mix.  She's kept us busy these last few months, but we're happy to have her with us.  Her are a few pics of her.  You can tell that she gets away with a lot with this face.

Sneak Peek for Miss A.

Here's a sneak peek of some of my favorite pics of Miss A's bridal shoot.  I was so lucky she was up for anything.  I feel terrible that she ended up with mud on her gown, but she was a real trooper.  I couldn't have asked for a better model.  There are so many more to choose from, but I couldn't help but want to play with these first.

Miss A.

I was so happy to hear that Miss A. wanted to have some bridal shots before her wedding.  Plus, she was up for anything. What photographer doesn't love to hear that?  I couldn't have asked for a better model. She had the most gorgeous, natural smile and she was super sweet. Except for the fact that she forgot one tiny thing...her ring...she was perfect.  Luckily, she had her sister with her and we weren't too far from home. We had a ring in no time. I am just beginning to work on her photos, but I knew this was going to be one of my favorites right from the start.  I hope she likes it as much as I do.

More to come soon.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  We spent almost all day Sunday creating these adorable little Valentine characters for J Bird's classmates.  I want to give a HUGE thank you to Meg for sharing this fabulous idea with us on her blog post.  I know I ripped it off, but how could I disappoint my 5 year old?  At least that's what I keep telling myself.  It was quite a task, but a whole bunch fun to make these little guys.  I do have to admit that my hubby was responsible for most of the cool, boy valentines, but I was the master of the hot glue gun.  So, I(and my burned fingers) will insist on some of the credit.

Take a look at these!

J Bird's favorite, of course.  We had to make a dino-valentine.

These were so cute and I'm so glad I took a 5 minute break (literally) to get a few snapshots.

I hope your day was full of happiness, lots of hearts, chocolate, and love!
