I have taken pictures of Elizabeth since before she was born! I think she’s getting used to me and my camera. She even posed a few times!
Tell me this isn’t the cutest thing EVER…
Here are a few teasers of the Paulsen family, with adorable baby Avery (who was still in mommy’s belly the last time we took photos!)
More to come…
This past Sunday I visited Brandon and Lindsay (from the last post) for Lindsay’s Grandpa’s 80th Birthday party. It’s hard to believe he’s 80! Here is a small selection of photos from the day:

Because I love these two..
Last weekend I had the opportunity to photograph the Moss Family. They are a happy family of three with a hilarious and adorable daughter, Paige, who is almost 3 years old.

This is really advance notice – but this year KEP is going crazy for Christmas cards! I’m sure some of you have seen my previous designs (if you haven’t, please contact me for more information!). My idea is to showcase your year, your family, your photos in a creative and beautiful way for your year-end card.
A lot of people ask about the cards, but usually not until the second week of December. I know it doesn’t feel like Christmas in October and November, but it is the perfect time to start planning your card. To jump-start your process, I am going to be offered a reduced design fee this year, during October and the first 2 weeks of November. I’ll also offer a $5 discount for referring your friends!
So while it’s only June, this time of year does mark a halfway point, and it’s not a bad idea to start thinking about what you’ve done and what you want to portray in your holiday card.
Here is a helpful timeline:
-If you want to have family portraits taken, think early fall, even the end of summer. Portraits take time to edit and turn around to you, and you’ll probably want time to choose. Start booking those soon.
-If you are planning on a family event timeline or collage, it’s never too early to start a file on your computer for those perfect images.
-You may not have any idea WHAT to do, but that’s where I can help! I have a lot of ideas, and I’ll tell you what I would do with whatever media you choose to display (yes, even text).
When we get closer I’ll post a few more related topics like how to choose compelling photos, what type of card is best for your family, and how the design process will work. Oh! And I’ll give you the details on the sale. So stay tuned!!
I can’t believe I haven’t posted this before now…but after taking newborn shots of baby Elizabeth, I was able to create a really fun and innovative birth announcement for parents Katie and Layton. The design featured a fold out card with 4 panels, front and back. When you pull it from the envelope, you see this:
Then you unfold it to see all four panels:
The idea was that the whole card could be nicely spread out on someone’s fridge, or it can stand on its own on a coffee table.
For extra impact, we also made use of the back:
