Kinsley’s 3 Month Photo Shoot!

This little girl was so sweet!  Baby Portraits are one of my favorite sessions, there is nothing better in this world for a Mommy than experiencing Babyhood.  It is a magical, yet exhausting time, however one of the best times of my life.  I love spending time photographing this phase in their childs life for mom’s, it is so special and all too fast!  This little sweetie was such a sport and gave me exactly what I was hoping for, personality, bright eyes, little smiles and of course a good nap!  Kinsley also won a Cake Smash Session, which I can’t wait for!  See you soon Little Miss Kinsley!

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.

A New Bundle of Joy!

Merrick Imagery-044

One of my good friends just welcomed her first baby into this world.  What an ANGEL!  No one can prepare you for the love that fills your heart and completes your family.  I wish her the most wonderful journey in motherhood.  It is worth every sleepless night, every ounce of fear, all the effort put in, any amount of pain and every tear shed.  Your child becomes your proudest accomplishment and where you will find the most joy in life.  Good Luck Ayeesha & Owen…Enjoy Parenthood, there is nothing like it!  

Welcome to the World Kylee!

Fun Senior Portrait Session!

Merrick Imagery-13I remember Senior Year as an exciting time!  Full of life, energy and the free feeling of a wide open future.  It can be intimidating to decide which route to take in life, but the best part is you have options and time on your side.  Not knowing where the wind will blow you or what direction you “should” choose is a daunting feeling, rest assured life moves quickly and you’ll find your way before you know it.  I drifted through my 20’s and finally found my passion in my 30’s…Portrait Photography.  So to all Seniors out there you do not need to know what you want to do in this life right this second…just get on living it.  Now is the time to experience everything, enjoy life, travel, work, learn, grow, make new friends, take some risks and never get lazy or complacent!  Best of Luck to you…Make the Best of this time in your life! :)
