Fallon Raine; Clinton, IA Newborn Photographer

My family traveled to Mississippi last month to meet our new niece -- Fallon Raine. This beautiful little doll was 13 days old, and I was soooo excited to be able to capture these shots of our very first niece. She still has her days and nights mixed up, so we shot these in the last light of the day with hopes of catching her with her eyes open. We did manage to get a few, but my favorites are those where she's sleeping peacefully.

Love those little toes!

More on Brandon... Clinton, Iowa children's portraits

Since I promised more pictures from last week's shoot with Brandon, I'm finally back to deliver. (Better late than never, right?!) Brandon was a lot of fun to work with. By the end of the shoot, he was even coming up with cool new location ideas.

Oh, how to begin.... Clinton, Iowa Children's Photographer

And so the blogging begins. This is a new venture for me. I guess this year has been a series of new (and exciting!) ventures in my world of photography.

The perfectionist in me says, "Don't launch this yet! Are you crazy?!" Well, yes, a little. My logo is not perfect yet; I don't have a beautiful collage of favorite photos already prepared to splash across the top of my blog; and I don't know the first thing about blogging. The idea of creating a blog was suggested to me only 2 days ago, and I've since spent an inordinate amount of time researching templates and various other blog-related topics.

But alas, I've decided to jump right in -- after all, I had a really fun shoot tonight so why not start by sharing that?

The mom's chosen location for the shoot? Their own back yard. And why not -- their landscaping was absolutely beautiful! But after meeting 11-year-old Brandon, I decided some urban flavor was also in order. Fortunately, I knew of some really cool spots only 2 minutes away (and we found a few more along the way!).

So for tonight, I'll start slow by sharing some of tonight's shots. And in the days and weeks ahead, I'll share some of the photos that brought me to this new and exciting era of my very blessed life.

Well, I had several more photos in mind to add, but the late hour suggests I should continue this tomorrow. More to come....
