Debbie Downer Time!

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

I really, really don’t like posting negative or not fun things, but I need to give you guys an update on my booking policy! 🙂

My fabulous, lovely clients. I wanted to let you all know that from here on out, I absolutely will not put your session on my calendar without a deposit. I have been stood up too many times and when an appointment gets canceled often I don’t have enough time to fill the space. 

i absolutely understand that sometimes things really do happen, but I also need people to understand that my time is just as valuable as theirs. Thanks so much, and I love you all! This doesn’t mean that if you have to reschedule you will lose your session deposit. I have found that those clients who pay the deposit are more likely to actually follow through with their session and not just book me on a whim!

Summer Mini-Session Time

Monday, June 4th, 2012

Hello everyone. I’m here to give you the low-down on the mini-sessions for summer. They will be offered for the 2 months of June and July only.

Mini-sessions are $100 and include:

1 hour of shooting in studio or on location

Editing of images

Password protected viewing and ordering gallery

$25 print credit.


This session is usually best for those who just need an updated family photo or those who have never used me before and want to ‘try me out’ before investing in a full family session. With this in mind, remember that you will not get the same large number of photos as with a regular session, and the disc is not included in this session (but you can purchase it later on).


Please mention that you are interested in this session when you email to book and I look forward to seeing you soon! 🙂

Louisville Family Photographer: Pretty Pretty Product

Friday, May 27th, 2011

I know I’ve mentioned before just how much I love product and product packaging. Here’s a peek at the order getting ready to go out today! (how cute is her baby belly?!)




She also had me design some adorable thank you cards for her, using one of her pictures!

I’ve just been sitting in the studio huddled around the heater doing an anti-rain dance. It occurred to me that I don’t ever really post any of the corporate headshots I shoot in the studio. I don’t know why I  don’t, they just never make it to the blog. So I’ll throw some up here on the blog today!

Say hello to some of the lovely people from New Washington Bank!

If you’re in need of some head shots for your staff or yourself, contact me to set up an appointment.

New Albany Family Photography: Spring and Easter Portrait Clothing

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

It’s no secret that Etsy is an addiction of mine. Once I get on there… I just can’t stop! So many cute items for me, kids, ANYONE! Most recently I was on there doing a little shopping for clothes for the kids for spring and Easter, I knew I couldn’t buy all of them (my husband would kick me out of the house!) so I thought I’d pass on some of the adorableness your way! (

Girls Outfits


Pink Bananas Boutique



Boys Outfits

Happy Shopping! 🙂

Louisville Boudoir Photography: Valentine’s Day Props!

I’m just rounding up my props for the Valentine’s sessions I’ll be shooting over the next few weeks! The day of the 29th will be the Bombshell Boudoir Bash, a day full of mini-sessions.

If you’ve been wanting to give your sweetie a Little Black Book full of super-hot images of you for Valentine’s Day, send me an email ( and we’ll get you scheduled!

How adorable are these aprons? The one with the hearts is a half apron, and the cupcake one is a full apron, it’s also reversible!!

Spatulas to match?? Yes, please!

These cute, little glittery hearts will be perfect for covering up important bits here and there!

Just to reiterate the whole reason you’re doing the pictures in the first place.
