In recent ads, I used the phrase belly=beauty, and never has it been more evident than during this session.
The lovely mom-to-be just had a radiance about her, and it sounds cliched, but she really did glow.
She looks beautiful, and I can't wait to meet her new little one.

It's been awhile since I've posted here, it's because I'm getting old. I woke up Sunday morning completely unable to move my neck and head. I guess I slept on it funny? It took 3 full days of being on my back to finally start feeling better - but I'll be roaring to go for the sessions this weekend!

Back in November I was graciously invited to speak at the Foothills Camera Club about infant and child photography.
I had no idea I had a fear of public speaking until about 45 minutes before I was scheduled to go on, lol!
I had a great time, and met many wonderful people that evening. If you're interested in photography, I'd highly recommend that you check them out, they have a lot of interesting outings, contests and guest speakers.

I prepared a slideshow of some current work to start off my presentation with, but actually forgot it when I was hit by a sudden urge to start talking about what I do, and keep talking for 45 minutes. So I thought it would be fun to share here.

I'm excited to show you some sneak peeks at one of the new products for 2008. Defined Collages.
They are 20X20 collages mounted and laminated - they look absolutely amazing! Clients are eating these up, and I'm ordering a ton for my own home. You can even order them without the text if you prefer. Every client will have one sample in their gallery in 2008.

Good egg.

Hee hee. This little cutie made me start thinking . . .maybe it's time to have another baby? She was so sweet and what a beautiful little temperament! I had previously met the mom during her friend's newborn session, so it was great to come and do the photos of her own little one. Congrats again on your beautiful little girl!

There are a million reasons why I love what I do, and this is #547. This little cutie is my friend Yolanda's new baby girl. Yo and I used to work together at CMT, what seems to be a million years ago, but I guess was only 7. Thanks to the powers of Facebook, we reconnected and I got the pleasure of taking photos of her new little one and meeting her new husband Dave, and seeing her daughter Tay looking gorgeous and GROWN UP! It was a great day, and I am so happy the document this new stage in their lives.

On the topic of new, there are going to be a lot of new changes for Fresh Sugar in 2008. A new look, new products and new pricing. The new pricing starts February 1st, but if you book before January 31st you will receive current prices. That means you can book a session for May, and still have 2007 prices. If you want a session soon, please email me as I have only one session left for January!

My Favorite 2 Year Old of 2008

Ok, so she's been my ONLY 2 year old so far this year, but she's still my fave. This little beauty was so sparkly and fun, I could have stayed and played for hours. She was a little shy at first, but I managed to break the ice by pretending to be afraid of things. Hey, I'll do anything for a laugh. I had so much fun meeting this family, we laughed, the baby cried, and I got to show off some of my rad moves a la Backyardigans. Awesome!

Also, the Fresh Ideas session for January is still up for grabs, email me now if you're interested. It's a $250 value!

Fresh Ideas from Fresh Sugar

I'm so excited to implement this new promotion this year! Each month I will be posting a Fresh Idea. These are concepts that I am personally and professionally interested in. It may be that I have a cool idea, or something I would like for the Fresh Sugar website or advertising.
Each month will have a new idea, and a new winner. The winner receives a FREE session and a FREE 11X14 of the shot that I was trying to achieve with my Fresh Idea.
I can't wait to get started, January's idea is for a buff shirtless dad to do some newborn photos. If you know a dad or dad-to-be that fits this bill, email me at There's only one winner a month, so act quickly if you want a free newborn session!
