My Totally Rad New Blog

Well it's a little sad because this is my first blog site - with this site I was officially - a Blogger! But, at the same time I am so excited about my new blog and being able to really showcase my images at a larger size and have a new look to showcase my new logo and my new images. OK, so you get the idea - I'm re-energized and ready to take my photography to the next level. All you have to do to stay in touch with my blog is to change your bookmarks and visit my new blog at Mary's New Blog

Once you get there just go ahead and subscribe to my blog and you'll never miss a thing. In fact - once you check out the new digs you will see a promotion for the first 10 subscribers who are clients or may want to be future clients. I hope all of my regular photography friends will go ahead and subscribe as well - that's how we keep in touch and stay motivated!

I am working on getting a link posted on my new blog back to my old blog but I'm still learning my way around and it might take me a few days.

Thanks to everyone who has kept up with me!

The Emerson Girls

Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer again and now that Anne Mitchell is two years old we welcomed her new baby sister - Elizabeth. Note to Mary - little boys think pushing the button on my light meter is a real magic treat - little girls - well they like pink candy! Time for me to stock the candy box again. Here are a few of my favorites.

Hippity - Hoppity

What fun! Expect the unexpected when working with animals and children - as the saying goes. We had so much fun last Saturday though with our Bunny Promo and I don't think I've ever laughed so much or sneezed so much in one day. Note to Mary - take allergy pills before working with live animals. Bun Bun and Jennifer were just awesome to work with though. And how adorable were all the little outfits the kids wore. There is nothing like bringing out the child in a child as when you put them in the presence of such a cute, adorable little furry animal like Bun Bun. We adapted our bunny treats - little bribes for staying on the set - throughout the day and totally got lucky when I brought in the head of lettuce to our set. Just have to say many thanks to everyone who supported my first live bunny promo. And special thanks to those who are already signed up for next Saturday's Blessings promo. These are some of my favorites and funnies from Saturday.

Fundraiser for COMEC

Hey All,

I will be out at the fabulous new childrens boutique, Lily and Frog, tonight from 4 to 8 helping raise some money for COMEC - the Commission on Missing and Exploited Children. Stop by for some great shopping for spring outfits for your next photo session and receive 10% off. Lily and Frog is donating 10% of all sales to COMEC and I am holding a drawing for one free photo session - $125 value. I will donate the $125 to COMEC on behalf of the winner and Candid Creations Photography.

Lily and Frog is located at 4615 Poplar Ave at Perkins Extended in the Laurelwood Collection.

So come shop for a good cause and enjoy appetizers, wine, beer, soft drinks and the great Children's Play Area.

See you there!

Amberlee is Ready for Spring!

I knew my session with Miss Amberlee was going to be fun when she came into the studio all smiles and talking up a storm. I didn't have a clue what she was saying but she came ready to play. There were so many great images but here are just a few of my favs. Enjoy!

I had so much fun working with little Miss Lorelei last week. She stayed shy for only a few minutes and then really put on a show for the camera. Who knew that my only request for some great rock n' roll music during the session would come from a 2 year old but she loves it. Here are some of my favs from our little rocker - Lorelei.
