Kira’s 30th Birthday {A Tea Party}

Adam and I are good friends with Kira’s stepdad Keith, and when he contacted me about photographing Kira’s birthday party, I didn’t think too much of it. But when I arrived…holy canoli. Kira had planned an elaborate Alice in Wonderland-themed tea party in a beautiful garden. There were so many fun details to photograph, I was in heaven! In addition to the details, I got to have a little pre-party photo shoot with the lovely Kira (who does NOT look 30), who made all the food herself! Her party-planning and cooking abilities were perfectly on-point. There was live music from the uber-talented Lacey Cruse, cake, friends, family, and all-around gorgeousness. I can’t describe it, so I will let the photos do the talking! Happy Birthday Kira!

Kristina {Headshots}

Kristina works with my husband as a 5th grade teacher.ย She started out as his student teacher and has now been a fun co-worker for several years. Although this was her last year…and now that school is out for the summer, I guess that means they don’t work together anymore! Sadness. It has been great getting to know Kristina and I was super excited to take her headshots last week. She is a very talented dancer and choreographer, and she is doing great things in the world of show choir. Congrats on your new adventures Kristina. We will miss you!

Headshots {Heartspring}

Did you know that here at GDP, I also take headshots in addition to weddings and portraits? My headshots package includes:

*20 minute headshot session

*5 high resolution digital images

…for just $125!

I have a small studio available, but as with most situations, I’m a bigger fan of taking these outside. The lovely Tessa, Cristy, and Dusty braved some frigid 30-degree temps last week so that we could get some nice headshots for their work at Heartspring.

Madeline {Headshots}

Meet my beautiful niece, Madeline. She’s headed off to Princeton this year (yes, THAT Princeton) and she needed some headshots for auditions and such. Oh, what’s that? I don’t look old enough to have niece who’s in college? Why THANK you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m lucky enough to have a niece who’s both smart and beautiful. Can you believe these eyes?! Looks like we got lucky with our gene pool on my hubby’s side. Congrats and good luck at Princeton, Maddie!

Blair & Ruth {Family}

I think it should be mandatory for every mom and daughter to do a photo session together. What fun memories! Blair came to me a couple months ago with this idea…both she and her mom needed headshots for various big life events, and they also thought it would be fun to do some shots of the two of them together before Blair moved away this summer. We {of course} got one of the hottest days yet for their shoot, but you would never know from looking at how much fun they were having. After getting all the formalities out of the way, we ended at a park where they played on the merry-go-round and swings like kids. LOVE seeing relationships like this between adult daughters and their moms. So, uh, Mom…let’s do this? K? ๐Ÿ™‚
