Who doesn’t love some CAKE?!

Happy First Birthday Miss Kinsley!  What a sweet and fun little girl (mom too)! I had so much fun photographing Kinsley tasting her first bite of sugar all dressed up like any little girl should be on her Birthday!  Look at those diamond eyes!  One of my favorite parts about newborn, baby and childhood photography is seeing the kids grow and having the opportunity to capture it for their families.  The Yellow Balloon Photos on the bottom represent the presence of Kinsley’s beloved Grandma who wanted to be here with Kinsley on this day more than anything.  She will live on in your heart little girl, for always and forever.

Highlights from a Wonderful 2015!

2015 has been such a wonderful year, a juggling act, but still a wonderful year.  Newborn, Baby & Child Fine Art Portrait Photography is where my creative soul has found a place to flourish. This year I had the opportunity to work with some great families and amazing little ones.   Looking back over this last year has shown me the tremendous progress I have made in taking my new venture to the next level.  I am so looking forward to what 2016 has in store for my photography career!  I am finally making the transition to Merrick Imagery as a main career focus and with a LOT of hard work, family support and dedication I look can’t wait to truly begin pursuing this new chapter of my life.

 

On a more personal note, I was blessed with another healthy, amazing, handsome little son to fill my heart with heaps of love and my life with so much joy! Watching my two sons play, learn and grow brings fun and peace to this everyday grind.

 

I wish you and yours a Happy, Healthy & Productive 2016!  Do more of what makes your Heart Happy.  Worry Less about what you can’t change and stay focused on what really matters in this crazy world.  Oh… and even though life is busy and stressful, this is possibly the best time of your life, don’t forget to stop and capture it with a Portrait to cherish for a lifetime.

The New Addition to the Merrick Family

 

 

Tyler Austin Merrick 

Merrick Imagery-103Meet the new addition to the Merrick Family.  I wasn’t sure how I could ever love another someone as much as I love my son Mason, but as my sister in law told me “your heart just grows bigger.”  That couldn’t be more true, in the blink of an eye my life has changed and my heart has once again grown to make room for a new love.  Now I am the proud mother of two beautiful healthy sons.  Life feels wonderful! 🙂
