What do you get your husband for Valentine’s Day?
January 10, 2010


That’s right. You.

I am now booking sessions for classy, sexy, irresistible Boudoir photos. Each session includes a CD with all high resolution, fully edited images and a 7 x 7 hard back gift book to give your husband for Valentine’s Day.

All images are tasteful and appropriately hide all of the “goods” with just a peek to tease your man.

Make it fun! Any two sessions booked together (not shot together, but shot at the same location on the same day) saves you $50 per session. Call your best girl friend, break out the wine, and make it a fun girls’ afternoon.

This one to two hour session, including CD and gift book, is just $350.

All body types are beautiful (your husband certainly thinks yours is!) and will be shot in a way that makes you comfortable. One kind client has given me permission to share a few of her shots. If you are curious, please call me to set up a consultation and I will be happy to show them to you and discuss what you want.

Busy December
December 31, 2009

Wow! Where does the time go? I felt like I just posted a few days ago and here it is, like, a month later. December was a little nuts with a few businesses contracting design work for the end of the year. I had fun with two books (interiors and covers) and the water from Israel finally cleared customs and made its way to Hickory. We still don’t have a sales rep after a failed attempt with one gentleman, so if you are a sales and marketing professional or know one that needs a job, let me know! Since we don’t have a sales rep, they are not in stores anywhere, but you can still order from the website: Genesis Living Water of Israel.

My brother-in-law will be going to basic training sometime between now and February (at least that’s what they tell us), so we did a Hartman-boy shoot for the parents’ Christmas gifts. My siblings-in-law (is that an actual phrase?) wanted a studio-type setting, so we set up my mobile studio right in the living room. We also got some fun couch shots as well. The 20-degree weather and little boys that already had sniffles kept us indoors.

All of my men-folk…

The big Hartman boys…

and the little Hartman boys…

I leave you with a bunch of giggle-pusses.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I pray blessings on you in the New Year!

Dancers and More
November 16, 2009

OK, brace yourself. If you have seen my work before, this post will be a little different. I don’t do a lot of studio work, but when I do it is usually dancers. I LOVE shooting dancers. I also LOVE shooting dancers outdoors, but that doesn’t work well for a full day at one studio.

The funny thing is, after I have been around these beautiful creatures all day, I sometimes feel like I can do some of the things they can. For example, I bent down to pick up my laptop at the end of the day and didn’t bend my knees. Ooops. Can’t do that! I am not bendy like they are.

It was a fun day. We had some little dancers…

We had some “big girl” dancers as well.

And, of course we had some feet. 🙂

It was definitely a blast. This is just a small sample and I apologize if you were there on Saturday and are not in the blog post! I will have all of your images up soon.

I loved meeting each and every one of you and, as always, could not have done it without my right-hand woman. A big “THANK YOU” to my professional ballerina photo stylist!

Lovely Little ‘E’
November 10, 2009

This beautiful little girl had a blast at our session! She ran all over and wore out all of the props. Her mother called me the next day and said, “can we have a photo session every night? She slept all night without a peep!” Glad I could help. 🙂


Oh, and did I mention… this little one’s mamma made that beautiful green dress and apron herself?





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…
