You are too young to understand this, but I feel the need to inform you that you possess the following: a really hip nursery, a couple of equally hip parents, the awesomest outfits, and the cutest little happy face. You are one lucky and adorable little lady.
Yours truly, and with hugs,
Ok, so I seriously dig this family. I shot their uber-gorgeous wedding a couple years ago, and now they are parents. Yippee! I’m so happy for them, and they sure know how to make parenting look cool. We got together recently and whooped it up photo-wise. Also, I have to thank Andisheh for the tea, the Hall and the Oats. When I’m having a great day, it can always be made even greater with some H&O!
Ok, ok….before anybody gets mad at me for this next one, you have to understand that Andisheh and Christi love it as much as I do. I am all about REAL family moments, along with the pretty-pretty ones. Adelaide is such a sweet, calm baby. When she had a surprise spit-up attack, I just couldn’t resist. Tee hee!
I hope she keeps this hairstyle forever.
And now, if they ever form a band, a few album covers…..
I love pets! And I love people who love their pets.
Thanks so much, you guys! You’re family is the bestest!
I met the lovely Miss Jessica when I took some headshots of her earlier this year. She was so much fun to shoot with, and was incredibly photogenic. She contacted me recently to get some new shots with her now curly hair, and……the wig. I am dedicating this post to “the wig”. Let me explain. Jessica was telling me that she wasn’t booking work for her age group because she looks so much younger than her actual age (she really does). Kind of a great problem to have, right? Well, not if you’re an actress trying to land jobs. So, through a particular job she was on, and an amazing wig, she realized that the best thing to do is to go for the younger roles. Win, win! So, we took some shots with the curly Jessica hair, and then some with the super-transformative non-Jessica hair. I STILL can’t believe it’s the same person. She looks gorgeous both ways, and will probably now book all the roles. Sorry ladies!
I call this next one her Katie Holmes shot.
2010 has been my first, fabulous year doing Cheeky Lamb Boudoir shoots with some incredible people. My super-most-favoritest part has been the moment during each shoot when someone transitions from being a little shy to completely owning their beauty and flying that confidence flag as high as it will wave. Love, love that!
Photos full of gorgeousness make a great gift for your special somebody, or as a gift to yourself. Holla! A handy-dandy gift certificate for a photo shoot can also be an unexpected treat.
It’s important to note that these shoots aren’t just for the ladies. Couples shoots are SO fun and romantic. My next adventure will be the fella shoot (or dude-oir, as we like to say!). Who wouldn’t want crazy-hot, GQ-ish pics of their man??
That brings me to the main reason for this friendly reminder of a post. Now is actually the time to get your gift certificates before the holidays. If you’re thinking about giving photos of you to someone for Valentine’s Day, we’ll need to do your shoot during December or early January. Time totally flies, so I thought a little heads-up couldn’t hurt. As an extra incentive, I’m happy to offer up a discount. Woo hoo! Anyone who contacts me and mentions the “Cheeky Discount” between now and December 31, 2010 will receive 10% off any Cheeky Lamb Boudoir photo shoot package. For all the juicy details, just give us a holler.
Since it wouldn’t be right to have a post without pics, here are some yummy album layouts with a few of the images from this very Cheeky year. Yay!
Volunteer work is truly one of the most gratifying things one can do. I’ve given time in different ways over the years, such as helping out at a hospital in the surgical recovery area, and taking care of lots of furry friends at a no-kill cat shelter. These days, I’m so pleased that my photography is something that can be donated to lend a hand.
The wonderful Holli Hines Easton brought me on board to photograph an event for an important organization that she works with. The people at Chayil assist women who are survivors of domestic violence. They offer many levels of support, including life coaching, financial planning, and various personal development tools. Chayil was hosting a “Challenge to Change” brunch at the Ritz-Carlton, and I was happy to capture photos of this inspiring event.
It was so nice of them to put my logo on one of the gorgeous tables!
The lovely Brenda Wood did a marvelous job as Master of Ceremonies. She has worked with Chayil for some time, and it was easy to see how strongly she supports their goals.
Chris is the son of one of the women helped by Chayil. He read a poem that he had written, which described the journey that he and his mom have taken. It was deeply moving, and he spoke with such eloquence. There were more than a few tear drops on my camera. He offered such a perfect example of what this organization can achieve.
Thanks so much to Holli, Heidi, and all the folks at Chayil. You are providing an incredible service. If anyone reading this would like to find out more about Chayil, or how to help, please click HERE.
