Upcoming Storybook Goodness!!!

Posted on October 8, 2015

OMG!  This blog is so sad…  I wish I can tell you that I am so on top of things, but I can’t.  I have ALL these Storybook Shoots that haven’t even seen the light of the blogosphere yet.  No worries.  I’m on it.  In the meantime, see if you can guess which ones I have up my sleeves (or should I say, ones I’m dyyyyyyiiiiiing to finish so I can show you).  🙂





“Goldilocks” – Storybook Shoot

Posted on February 25, 2015

If I have to choose ANY kind of photography that I would LOVE to be doing forever, it would be photographing children and turning them into characters of beloved story books.  This “Goldilocks” shoot was such a fun one to put together… It’s like being a kid again and getting to play with dolls and playing dress-up.  Love love love it!!!





“Max” – Where The Wild Things Are – Storybook Shoot

Posted on December 13, 2013

At long last, I get to share with you another one of my special Storybook Photo Shoots.  Maurice Sendak’s classic, “Where The Wild Things Are” is one of my favorite children’s books ever.  When I was scouting around to find the perfect little boy to play “Max,” I didn’t have to look farther than my very own home.  My youngest son, Lukas, looked at me with those giant dark eyes one evening with tears streaming down his face.  “Mommy, I dreamed that monsters were chasing me!”  To calm him down, I sat him on my lap and told him that monsters were just made up creatures.  I then showed him the book, and then the lightbulb moment happened:  OMG.  He’s going to be the perfect Max!!!  And the rest is history.  🙂
