Everyone is so excited to meet you baby Tills!

  Such an exciting day of shooting photos for this beautiful couple who's love story I captured and froze forever. I think it's so important not only for them to have these photos, but more importantly to have these for their baby boy's future. He will treasure these photos for many years to come.

     To hear the giggles and feel the happiness we all experienced while putting these photos together is such a high. I just love spending time documenting these moments that are so filled with joy. This little guy is almost here and will change so many with the love of his little heart that will fill so many others hearts. The excitement seems to get bigger and bigger with each passing moment. Its been a long wait, but so worth it as the world will be blessed with Gods amazing new blessing. Hurry up little guy. I personally can't wait to meet you and document many more moments of your little life.

Congratulations Jimmy and Alexa. He's going to be perfect and so beautiful!

He's so Loved already! Baby Tills !!

     A blessing. A gift. Not here yet, but already so loved and the feeling of happiness and joy consumes everyone that knows mommy and daddy or their family. I love the excitement of a new baby that just spreads pure joy everywhere. Life is turned in such a wonderful direction when you are expecting a new baby. Its so awesome and so contagious. 

  I shot these photos of mommy and baby Tills the other day. Mommy is 6 months pregnant and this shoot is early, but we took these photos because...............because its a slice of life that is quickly gone as her tummy continues to grow bigger with the blessing of love growing  stronger inside of her until his birth. I'm glad we took the time to shoot these. We will take more photos when she is closer to her due date and include daddy in them. You are so loved already baby boy. We can't wait to meet you and cover you with smooches. You look beautiful Alexa!! xoxo

Sweet baby blues

  Sugar and spice and everything nice is so true for this little love. She is my great niece and what a blessing she is. She is so fun at the tender age of 2 and full of giggles,new words,love,joy and endless adventure! We headed out one morning to capture some moments that are now forever frozen in time. Time which is so quickly passing by at this age. I absorbed every ounce of yummy that she was sharing with my heart. It was a very happy visit in Colorado that I loved. I will cherish the photos I took and will be sharing more in the near future. I hope you all can feel the sweetness of this one photo as she smells this pretty flower with the accent of her big blue eyes.

Daddy's Princess

     I really wanted to do a fun, loving photo shoot and that's what I  strive to accomplish with each client. I sent this daddy a message on fb inquiring if he would be interested in a photo shoot with his 3 year old little girl and he said "yes"! I was thrilled!  When he asked about where,when and clothing I shared my thoughts and only requested that he just follow my lead when we got to the location of choice, which was the beach. I tend to get the best photos when my clients have some trust in my vision of what I see and am capturing through my camera.

  Emotions are such a high to feel in photos for me,so that is what I always want to capture and freeze forever when Im photographing someone. I get so thrilled when I can read that my work grabs heart strings such as this daddy shared with me. The fun this afternoon was so captivating. I can still hear her little giggle as they chased each other down the beach and  ran in the surf together. So many great moments here! Knowing Chris, I knew that he would toss her in the air and she would love it ,so of course I had to request this playfulness that they have always shared and freeze it forever. I can't say enough about this little cutie and the sweetness she is just exploding with in every little inch of her 3 years.

  Such a blessing and such a thrill to freeze this slice of life forever for her future :)

My Muse

  She is so full of mischief,silliness and so much love. This little blessing is so funny and happy that she makes me laugh until it hurts all the way down to my toes. It does take a village and i feel such a joy to be a part of that. She takes all my stress and troubles away. A true gift from God. I love capturing al of these moments of her little world as it happens. She is my muse and I hope you can feel or hear what I do when I take these photos that will freeze her little world forever as she grows too fast. Life keeps moving forward and it is so fun to look back through photos. I hope she treasures these someday and knows how much I loved her. 

   Playing with chalk at 4 years old. Just makes me smile so much. I hope you enjoy this series of photos as much as I enjoy her :)

Sweet little Harper is coming soon 6/2016

   There is nothing more joyful than taking maternity pictures. I love the happy and exciting feeling I can capture while shooting such a blessing. I have this beautiful gown and knew immediately the vision I had for it.

   Who? What? Where?......Always coming to mind when putting together a shoot. I spoke with Rachael and we met up soon after.She has grown up with horses so we just had to include her boy,Nate. She told me about the property where she has Nate and that is where this beautiful setting happened. I could not believe the amazing feeling while I was shooting these photos. I was blown away by the beauty that surrounded me in every single direction and was giddy with every click of my shutter. I am very excited to share these photos and hope you can hear and feel the passion I have for photography.  Harpers arrival is approaching fast & I can't wait to meet her. Enjoy this blog post and feel free to share it. I hope to see you all in front of my camera lens soon ! ;) ~ D-Rae

Just a polka dot dress

  So much fun capturing the beauty of this beautiful lady in her fun and sassy polkadot dress. I knew immediately what my vision was with this shoot and it came from a photo a friend showed me of her mom back in the 50's. It was so awesome traveling back in time as I admired the photo of this friends mom. I immediately remembered seeing a polkadot dress owned by a client as I was  looking at the gorgeous black and white photo from so long ago. I immediately called my client/friend and asked her if she would be interested in a photo shoot of herself wearing her pink polkadot dress. She wanted more information, but all I could give her was a glimpse of what I was visualizing. The beauty of photographing her and her family is the trust she has in my work. It makes it so easy for me and the end result is always such an endless amount of joy and happiness from Rachel and her family. I love photographing therm !!

  I hope you enjoy these beautiful and happy photo's ~ D-Rae

A portrait for her kids.....

  I asked her to go with me so I could take some photos of her for her kids.Everyone that knows this pretty and silly lady knows the fun and joy she always carries with her. I am so grateful to my friend,Eleni, for taking a few minutes to allow me to freeze her silliness forever. I strive to shoot photos that any viewer can feel and hear as if they were with me during the shoot. This shoot in particular was so silly and fun,as you can imagine.

 Don't forget to slow down and go have some fun while someone professionally captures a slice of your life forever ;)

  thanks for the laughs,Eleni !

Play Ball !!

  I decided to go shoot a baseball game of a friend and former neighbor before he left for college to go play ball. I love shooting sports of all kind and as long as the athlete I am tracking is delivering with great plays I will tell a story full of action that I freeze in time forever. My whole objective when shooting my camera is to move you in some way as you look at my photos that will tell a story. Jaison is a great ball player and I was more than impressed with his support of his team as a leader & hustle on the field. Great job Jaison !!

  If you would kindly let me know how you like the photos it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
