I had so much fun shooting downtown with Blake. He’s a 2010 Senior at Lincoln Christian School. Plays football, loves to hang out with his friends, and has a great sense of humor.

This is a sneak peek of Part I of 2 sessions! Such a handsome guy – reminds me of James Dean.

Noel: Bman: I went to college (La Tech)to be a pilot(professional aioitvan). I'd say chase the dream!!! The view from 3000 is phenomenal. The noise and wind inundates you. At my size the Cessna 152 is QUITE small, and very uncomfortable to fly, but as soon as the engine starts to whine, all the discomfort is forgotten. If you have any of the concerns that Jim describes, you still have powered flight options! They're cheaper and just as fun! Buy and fly an ultralight aircraft!!!FAR 103 covers powered ultralight aircraft. There are no training, physical, or licensing rquirements.(I WOULD NOT ADVISE ANYONE TO EVER ATTEMPT TO FLY ANY AIRCRAFT WITHOUT PROPER TRAINING!!!)You could also look into light sport aircraft which was a change instituted in 2004 by FAA (courtesy of Experimental association). It doesn't require medical approval, either. Basically, if you can get a driver license, you can get a light sport pilot license.If you dream of powered flight I can promise you'll never regret it! As an aside (I was at the air space museum (Smithsonian) for the 100th anniversary(exact moment) of powered flight.) It was great. I met descendents of wilbur orville and more importantly Charles Taylor (any other airplane nerds know who he is? don't cheat by googling). I found out that the wright flyer is original except for the fabric. They cut them up into pieces and gave them as souveniers, and sold some of them to continue funding flight ops.Sadly some raging assholes flew planes into the world trade center and ended my hopes of being a professional pilot, by putting many experienced pilots out of work, thus creating a backlog that'd take years to overcome flying chicken transports out of honduras at 15k a year. I had a few kids by this time (4 of 6) and couldn't afford the paycut. I was already working as a mechanic for Delta, so I just rode that pony til I ran out of quarters.

Little ‘B’ is so big now! It’s just so hard to believe this is the same newborn I photographed just 9 short months ago!

Check out this adorable little hat and leggings set mom brought for her session!!! Too stinkin’ cute! I think ‘B’ knows how cute she is in this, too…




And this little mischievious look – heehee….


And this little outfit was made by a dear friend who owns a custom boutique online store called Josiekat’s Trunk. I just had to have some of these little vintage inspired items to have on hand for the babies! ‘B’ was the perfect model for this darling set! Doesn’t she look adorable?


Thank you, ‘S’ family, for allowing me to be your photographer. I hope you enjoy the sneak peek!

I loved sharing this special day with Sarah and Jimmy. They are just so in love and compliment each other so well. Sarah is the opinionated, strong willed one and Jimmy is the soft spoken, laid back one. Just perfect for each other!

Here are a few to share – will share more of the ceremony in another post.

Hope you all are having a great time on your honeymoon!!!!













And one from after the ceremony – playing with a little off camera lighting.

Sara: I love these! They're great, Robbie...awesome vintagey theme too!

Stephanie: Sister of the bride here, and I have to say I'm so excited to see these! Your style fit right in with Sarah and Jimmy's and these photos are amazing! Can't wait to see more.

Sarah Mansur: These look fabulous!!! Her eyes look amazing in that headshot!! They will love them!

Carla: As Mother of the Bride, I could not ask for more. You truly captured the love they have for each other. You are amazing!

I have so enjoyed my time with this family! Another baby planner graduates with this session. It’s so sad but fun at the same time – I’ve been photographing this little guy since he was 3 months old! You can see his first session here. He’s now walking and busy as can be! It’s been so much fun watching him grow up to be so independent – he wanted to help me do everything during our session! He brought props to me (usually after I placed them on the backdrop but that’s another story) and helped me set up the backdrop (well you know, as much as a 1 yr old could). He’s so cute!






Thank you, ‘C’ family, for allowing me to share these precious moments with your family!! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Aunt Sandy: Oh, what precious pictures of such a good-looking little man!! He is growing up soooo fast.......put a brick or something on his head! lol He is a doll, but how could he help but be considering who his mom and dad are! Love you, Aunt Sandy

Ingrid: What a cutie!!!! Love the variety! Great job with these. I know what you mean about seeing your baby planners graduate! It's so sad to me but also so rewarding!

Maria Rafalko: He is the most adorable little man I ever saw!!! Looks just like his daddy with Teressa's coloring!!! Love the pic's!!!

Diana: Fantastic blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any disoissucn boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article? I'd really like to be a part of group where I can get advice from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot! If you're reading this, you're all set, pardner!

Baby ‘O’ has gotten so big! It’s hard to believe this is the same little guy I photographed with his family here. He wasn’t in quite as good a mood – some teething, a little separation anxiety and a short nap made for a little bit of a challenge, but we captured some adorable moments!

Isn’t he sweet? He still smiles with his tongue out! I love it!


We kept trying to get a shot with his big bro but this is pretty much what we kept getting:


It’s all good, tho! We got plenty of adorableness!




And we can’t forget big brother, ‘J’, who had fun taking our picture!



Thank you, ‘E’, for sharing your boys with me yesterday!! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Erin: So cute! I was a bit worried that we didn't get any, but theses are great! Thanks

Ok, so maybe 6 weeker by now but still squishy and adorable! And in a much better mood! I had wanted some lifestyle/environmental shots and just had to go back for them (parents willing, of course, and they were!)

I wanted some shots of baby E in the nursery and the living room – with the yummy brown fringey throw, the gorgeous trunk they use for a coffee table, some shots of dad with baby and his beloved Taylor guitar (which he plays magnificently, by the way) and the special crocheted blanket by mom’s grandmother…

I did manage to get them all and I’m so excited to share a few!!




We tried to place baby ON the curve of the guitar while daddy played, but alas he was a little too big. And, well, he peed, so we decided it was endangering the guitar to try again! I love how this shot turned out!


And this is the beloved crocheted blanket done by baby E’s late great grandmother. I teared up when I heard the story about this blanket! ‘M’ once had a collection of beloved blankets made by her grandmother. They were destroyed by circumstances beyond her control and she was just devistated. She begged her grandmother to make her just one more so she would have something of hers to cherish forever. One day out of the blue, a package arrives at her work – from her grandmother. It still had her grandmother’s scent on it, which brought back so many wonderful memories. Upon her return home that very day, she found a message on her answering machine that her beloved grandmother has passed away. Yet, she managed to give her granddaughter the one thing she wanted the most – a hand made blanket to cherish forever.

I was so pleased to be able to incorporate this special blanket in this session! This is my favorite image from those series of shots…


Thank you, ‘B’ family, for allowing me to be a part of this special time in your lives! I hope you enjoy your 2nd sneak peek!

Melissa Barton: Thank you Robbie, we ADORE the pictures!!! You were great to work with and so patient and loving with our baby. I would recommend you to ANYONE having their baby's photos done, because you not only do fabulous work, but you are compassionate and sensitive with babies and know just how to comfort and coddle them in a session. Thanks for everything and I LOVE the afghan photo -- it made me cry!!!

Cheryl G.: WOW ROBBIE! What a photo!! I love these!!
