I was so excited to shoot this session, as I hadn’t seen Jill & Travis since their wedding and now they were expecting their first little one!  He has arrived and his post will be coming soon (wait’ll you see how adorable he is!!).  Thank you so much, Jill & Travis, for inviting me to capture another special moment in your lives.  🙂  This session was so much fun and so was my session with Baby R.

The past year I’ve had with Tasha & Donnie has been so much fun!  In that amount of time, I’ve photographed a Winter Engagement, a Spring Engagement, their wedding day, then a maternity session, followed up with the arrival of George!  They are, so far, my most photographed couple/family.  🙂  I love Tasha’s love of Pandas that made their way into George’s room.  And the sign that they hung above his window…pretty much says it all.

Both baby and mom were doing awesome when I got to see them before Christmas.  The panda theme carried through to his newborn session.  I picked up a panda hat, just after seeing his room during their maternity session.  Check out his panda pillow pet, too.  He is absolutely adorable and blessed with two of the sweetest parents ever.  🙂

Wow, where did 2011 go?  What an exciting year it has been!  I was just re-reading my post from last year and it just doesn’t seem like I wrote it 12 months ago.  Such a full year both personally and professionally…maybe that’s why it went by so fast (?).  Anyway, I’ve decided to split up my “best of” post this year into several posts, so stay tuned for a couple more.

I find myself, once again, very excited for the coming year.  Referrals this past year were through the roof and I thank you all for that.  That is one of the biggest compliments I could possibly receive.  2011 was a year full of familiar faces and it will be, again, this year, because of that.  Most of you know that my focus is on wedding photography, but I felt a slight shift this year as I seemed to be shooting more of everything (and loving all the families, children and newborns that I got to work with).  Some great updates will be coming to the site gallery and I have many blog posts to catch up on, so that you’ll be able to see all of the fun and gorgeousness I’ve had lately.

So this post will be about the many lifestyle sessions I had this year.  I don’t know if I consider them my best, but they are for sure some of my favorite.

A couple of weeks before my nephew was born, we (my sister-in-law and I) decided it would probably be a good time to capture some memories of her pregnancy.  So I loaded up the car with my equipment and my little girl and we headed over for a session that my little one decided she would also like to be included in.  🙂

His room is decorated so cute and all of his toys are waiting for him. 🙂

My little girl jumped in from time to time and would come up with her own pose - lol. 🙂

As I catch up on my blogging, Nico’s newborn pics will be up soon!

I don’t know about you, but for me – once the holidays have ended, I start dreaming of summer.  Sad, right?  🙂  I long for barefeet, sunshine and endless hours of daylight.  What better way to cure the winter blues than to offer up a new contest.  So what do you have to do?  Simple, send in your favorite vacation photo from summertime or otherwise.  Give us all a chance to dream of getting away and no, it doesn’t have to specifically be a warm place.  Submissions will be taken until January 31st.  Anyone can enter…friends, family, clients, other photographers or complete strangers…you get the idea.  By submitting your image, you are giving me permission to post it on the facebook page.  Voting will take place starting February 1st and will end on February 7th at midnight.  Fans will vote by “liking” their favorite image.  The picture with the most “likes” wins!

Weekday session must take place before June 30th, 2011 and will be taken locally.  Can be any type of session (newborn, kids, engagement, day after, beloved, etc.).  Images can be emailed to me at mmgphotography@comcast.net.

Here's one of my favorite vacation photos. My husband and our little girl dancing on the beach in Maine. 🙂
