I have always been bad at blogging my sessions. I am so behind! I wanted to share a few favorites from the last few newborn sessions we have had the last couple weeks.
I had someone ask me why I do this or why I specialize in newborns. Well for me I didn't have images of my babies and I so wish I did. I have always loved babies. They are such a special gift and I want to be able to capture that for my clients. I want to warm their hearts and bring a smile to their face when they look their images. It is a moment you can't get back. Your beautiful tiny little bundles of joy grow and change so fast. I want to bottle that up how they are in that moment for you to look back on when they are all grown up.
The Baby Love event went very well. I am so happy and grateful for everyone who came out to the event. Had lots of beautiful mamma's in the studio! Now I can't wait to photograph some of their babies. <3
I couldn't do this "job" without so many amazing clients. I am so blessed and grateful to be able to capture these special moments in so many people's life's. Thank you so much to each everyone of you that trust in me to capture your moments. I hope that my work warms your heart and bring a smile to your face. Capturing your babies of all ages-from birth to graduating and beyond is truly my passion. I couldn't do it without you all. Thank you.

Being in business for 11 years I have learned a lot. I have been burned, lied to and mistreated at times! I gotta say it hurts and makes it very hard for me to trust people at times. In this business it happens and it sucks-so I have to put new policies in places. As a business owner I must have polices in place to protect my business and livelihood. I do this "job" because I truly love to create art for my clients, but it also is how I make a living. I have been feeling down in the dumps lately and need to get out of this funk that I have been in. I am not saying everyone has lied, burned me or mistreated me-but the ones who have, have really put a damper in my mind and heart. I hate having to put some policies in place but it needs done. I am a very giving person and try so hard to make each client that walks in my door feel special, happy, and create a relationship. I love working with my clients. I love working with the ones that truly value my art. I can't imagine doing anything else. I am looking forward to this new year and all the things that it holds. I want to create art and memories for you to cherish for a lifetime!
I am so honored and blessed to be able to create art and memories for so many wonderful people. Thank you so much for being there!
I promise the new policies are not there to be mean they are there to protect me, and some are to help you! :)
New policies are:
***If you book a session with Sunshine Photography your retainer fee is due when booking your session to hold your date and is NON Refundable if you cancel or do not show up. The retainer fee is due within 24 hours or your date is not held and you do not get into the books. However if you need to change the session date the retainer fee is moved to the new date! I do offer credit cards, checks and cash. I can send an invoice to you or you can pay by phone with card!
***When booking newborn sessions dates are harder to pick and we can change dates when we know baby is here. You just need to pay the retainer!
***If you need to cancel please give 48-24 hours notice.
***When you are ordering prints I do offer payment plans. All orders that are on payment plans MUST be paid within 2 months (unless you make arrangements with me) or your order is canceled. No Refunds Due to the nature of the product!!!
***I will no longer be offering online galleries to review your images unless you are from out of town. I have had way to many people screen save their images and not order-I am not sure why you would screen shot an image with my logo on it but it happens to many times. Which is stealing!
*** I try to make each session custom to fit what your style is or what you want. When booking we will have a planning meeting either in person or by phone to plan out your session. In this planning session we will plan, location, outfits, style, ect...
*I do understand that there are Many Amazing photographers out there. I do know I am not the photographer for everyone and I am ok with that. Just Please don't lie to me-be honest if you book a session with me and decide you want to go else where just tell me-don't lie to me-I can handle it. What I can't handle is seeing that I was lie too. I am very giving person and try so hard to make each client happy!
I love photographing Newborns, HS Seniors, Babies, Children, Couples and Families! I love to learn new things and I am up for trying new things. Please don't be afraid to ask me lots of questions! I love to travel so if you want your session somewhere out of town-I am up for it!!! I do travel!!!
The only thing I am not offering at this time are weddings. I love photographing couples just not weddings! :)
I hope everyone understands why I had to put these policies in place. I am very grateful and blessed to have the clients I have! You guys Rock!!!
For all of you that made it through this long post and would like to book a session, give me any feed back, or receive 15% off your session fee message me! :)
Have a Wonderful Day!!! Love ya
A baby makes love stronger, the days short the nights long, savings smaller and a home happier.
Hold them tight snuggle them lots and tell them each and every day you love them. <3
This family is so adorable. I get the honor of photographing this adorable little girl every 3 months as they signed up for the big baby plan. Our babies grow and change so much in that first year. Let me help capture all the grow and changes.
I call this kind of session a snuggle family session. They pull at the heart strings-these are images I wish I had of me and my babies. Holding them, snuggling them, kissing them, holding their tiny hands-those hands and feet are my fav. So chunky, soft and dimples. <3 These kinds of sessions can be done in my studio or in your home. Shoot they can even be done outside when the weather is good.
These are going to be moments you will want to look back on and remember. How your baby fit so nice in your arms, the smell of a fresh baby, their soft skin, those chunky thighs and cheeks. Give us a call today to book your session!
These moments are flitting by...
Our sweet, tiny, adorable little babies are only tiny for short time. It is crazy how fast time really fly's by. When my babies were little I would hear people say that but didn't really believe them. Now my babies are all grown up and I have grand-kids. Which is Super crazy. I just can't believe how fast it went. I wish my babies were little again so I can snuggle them and hold them tight. I so wish I had more photos of me and my kids when they were little. I mean I have photos but not lots of them when they were babies, let alone with me in them. I was the one behind the camera and we didn't have cell phones back then either. I think that is why I love photographing babies now. I really love photographing mom and baby.
I am running a couple specials right now to help capture those tiny little ones and all the snuggles.
Book your newborn between now and Feb receive a free mini milestone sessions.
I am also running a mini milestone mini session until Feb 28, 2019. 20 minute custom session, 10 digital images with print rights, use of many props and outfits, got lots of ideas for milestone sessions. Good for ages 6-10 month old. All for $225.

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So, love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get the chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Boy oh Boy I thought I could keep up with blogging but nope-if I could afford to hire someone to just do my blog post that would be awesome. I am so sorry for falling behind. Yes it has been Months since I wrote a blog post. So Sorry! There are times I think, do people even read my post, do I really need to write one. I have been told by others yes it is important to do so. Ok well here goes...
The last couple months have been busy. During the summer I was taking care of my grandkids 4 days a week. Those 4 days are always different so it was hard. I was also taking sessions and trying to be a working mom again. Trying to find enough time to get things done didn't always happen. Now that school is back in and both are in preschool this year I have a little more time to get work done :) Today I was caught up on all editing and though oh lets go write a blog and update my peps on what is going on around here.
I have been finding being on social media is a life sucker and I have been trying to limit my time online. Got rid of my internet at home, so when I come home it is family time. I have learned to leave work at work. Or I am trying anyway. So If I do not answer your messages right away just know that I will return them when I get back to the studio :)
I have had lots and lots of sessions over the past few months. I am so blessed and grateful to have such amazing clients that keep my business going. You guys mean the world to me. I know over the last couple months I have not been feeling my best either. More mentally then anything. I have been fighting with doctors over the past 2 years to get things figured out. So if you have seen me at my worst, on one of my bad days I am sorry. If I ever came across rude, short or negative I am sorry. Please know I am working on that and trying Really hard to get things fixed and back to me again. I am not one who likes to share my personal stuff with the world but there are times I feel it needs to be shared. We are all human and we all have bad days. There for a while I got tired of putting on a smile and going to work like nothing was wrong. To the clients who had to see me down or not myself-I am sorry-Thank you for being there! You guys really are what gets me through sometimes. I am so grateful and blessed that I get to call this a "job". I love creating art for you and couldn't imagine doing anything else. So Thank you for all the Love and support over the years. <3 From the bottom of my heart Thank you!!!
I will try to blog again next week or later this week on all the favorites from the past couple months. :)
For now I will leave you with the Family Fall special. If I get enough interest I will open up another date. If you would like a spot Please give me a call, email me or find me on facebook!
