New blog!
February 10, 2010

Hey ya’ll!

I have finally organized my files to make my new blog look a little presentable. Please click on over to Carol Anne Hartman Photography for the new look! That is where I will be posting from now on.


‘S’ for “Super Family”
November 29, 2009

As I said in my previous post, I met the most amazing family last week. I finally have a few sneaks for them and the pictures just speak volumes to the love in that house (and not because of the photographer)!

Here are a few of my faves. They are not fully edited, but this beautiful family doesn’t really need to be edited at all. 🙂

I took a few shots while waiting for all of the kids to finish getting ready. Just clowning around…

Everyone was framed by everyone else. 🙂

LOVE this smile! He just lit up when I asked to actually hit the drum.

Still so in love…

‘S’ Family Sandwich

Eskimo kisses are pretty much the best ever!

“I’m Batman”


Sonya and Russell, thank you so much for having me into your home, for sharing your beautiful family with me, and for strengthening my faith with your example.

Family fun
November 23, 2009

I had one of the best afternoons yesterday! Not only did I get to shoot a great family, but I saw love in action. A true and deep love that comes from a family formed by the Creator — a family formed across city, state and country borders. I spent the afternoon with the Schweighardt family.

This is a truly remarkable, Godly family. They have 11 children. Would you like to take a minute and re-read that line just to make sure you saw it correctly? Eleven. Some are biological and some are (as Sonya says) born in their hearts. Make no mistake, though, they are each Sonya and Russell’s children.

I will have some previews up soon, but in the meantime, November is national adoption month. Take a trip over to the Schweighardt’s blog and show ’em some love. They are trying to adopt another child from Liberia and the government is making it extremely difficult (the Liberian government, that is). They are trying to raise money to help with the legal fees needed to complete the adoption. You can also listen to their interview that originally air last week on 106.9 The Light and see them on Oprah!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving week. Enjoy your turkey and family time!

Busy weekend!
November 9, 2009

That says it all! And next weekend will be more of the same. But this weekend I had to joy of capturing a senior, new headshots for a very talented actor, Christmas joy for little Miss ‘E’ and a beautiful dancer! Whew. I am tired just writing it all out.

So, keep and eye out today and tomorrow for updates and sneak peeks!

Also, don’t forget Christmas portraits. I will be set up again at Foothills Gymnastics in the dance rooms this coming Saturday for dance shots as well as Christmas portraits (check back soon to see an example with Miss E’s sneak peek). 12-noon until…
