Studio Info...

Studio Hours: Monday-Friday 11-4

I tend to book up about 2-3 weeks out. If you are interested in booking a session please schedule accordingly.
(in other words don't call the studio asking if we can shoot one day this week silly goose!)

I'll be taking the summer off therefore the studio will be closed from June-September...with the exception of bellies to babies clients.

"she walks in beauty"

meet ani...she walks in beauty. she was amazing. i could go on and on but i think the photos will speak for themselves. i just fell completely in love with the super sweet and very easy going girl. (a lot like my zoe.)

this is an ivory Bible that belong to her great-great grandmother.

SHE walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which Heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress
Or softly lightens o'er her face,
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek and o'er that brow
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent;
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent.

She Walks in Beauty is a poem written in 1814 by Lord Byron.

this is one sharpe family!

dear lord! I don't know where to begin with this family. ok here's a starting point...

I LAUVE them!

sam and I go way back, ok not way back but any connection that has to do with mac-n-cheese is "special" i tell ya! ok not special.. in fact it was disgusting... the mac-n-cheese...not us. (good times)
moving on to the family. i tend to get real wordy at times so let me keep it simple (I know what you're saying...shanna? wordy?) so here's what i have to say about them...beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! enjoy! thanks guys i had a blast. and oh yeah this was all made possible by some super fantastic generous friends! (birthday gift certificate) she must be pretty cool to have friends like that! or they must be cool OR they are all cool. (too wordy?)

anyway get your eyes ready. as my very kentucky born "southern accent-y" daddy would say "law child yer so purtty you make my eyes hurt"!

yummy...he reminds me of my best boy charlie!

these are stella's fancy nancy toes!

"ladies and gentleman prepare to be astounded... the amazing stella will make her brother disappear before your very own eyes"! "POOF"!

dear lord!

mommy love makes my heart smile :)

what did he say to her? we all want to know! (sweet nothings? i think naughty nothings!)
