One of my goals this year was to be featured. I also really wanted to learn how to freelens, be published on a blog, nail down my style and maybe even win an award, if things were going well. I worked so hard to meet these goals and am so happy I met every one of them.

I had a wonderful time meeting this beautiful family for their fall photo session! These fall colors were absolutely gorgeous at perfect at our sunset session! I’ve been photographing these handsome brothers since they were newborns. Goodness, how time flies. I love watching my HCS Photography families grow! Looking forward to seeing them again soon!

XOXO~Heather

Oh, how I love watching my Baby’s First Year planners grow! I can’t believe you’re already 9 months old, Ansleigh! I have photographed you and your family since you were a tiny newborn with a head full of dark black hair. And now you’re walking! I just can’t believe how quickly that year is going by! And, on my goodness…the love that I see in your parents’ eyes for you. You are the love of their life.

Happy 9 months, sweet pea.

Oh, sweet, Brookyln! I can’t believe your Baby’s First Year is complete! What a wonderful year it has been with you and your family. I have loved getting to know you and, especially, your sweet mommy. She has become one of my favorite people in this world:)I will miss getting to see you every 3 months. You are an absolute delight to photograph.

Happy 1 year, sweet pea.

I have been photographing sweet Ella Jo since she was just a few minutes old. I have loved getting to know her and her beautiful mother, Elizabeth, for the past 2 years. One of the greatest aspects of my job is not only watching “my kids” grow, but making new friends. I’m so happy that Elizabeth found me, and I’m able to add that friendship to my list.

I adore this session! Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy:)

Remember my Part 1 post? Well, this is the wrap up! The final 15 of 30 images of the project. I can say that freelensing for 30 days in a row has definitely been a challenge. I am so glad I stuck with it, though. I’m so thankful to be a part of this very talented group of CM Pros. I cannot thank you enough for asking me to be a part of this project.

Here are my final images. Hope you love them.

I had such a fantastic time with this family a few weeks ago! Sweet little Eliza is 10 months old and full of personality. When she laughs, you can see those two bottom teeth…absolutely precious! And mom and dad are so in love with their baby girl. Eliza already has her daddy wrapped around little pinky;)

 

Darla, thank you for choosing me as your photographer! Here are a few of my favorites.

This month, I have teamed up with some amazingly talented women from Clickin’ Moms who are also CM Pros to do something called 30 in 30. We are taking 30 photos in 30 days (one each day) during the month of August. I decided to challenge myself with a technique called freelensing. My lens is actually detached from my camera, and I hold it in front of the mount to get focus. You have total control over your lens and get great blur. It’s like a “poor man’s tilt shift” lens;)It’s no small task, and takes lots of practice.

 

Here are the first 15 images of my 30. Hope you love them:)
