Rodriguez Family http://sunnynights.biz/blog/2014/1/rodriguez-family I could not have asked for a more perfect family to have as my first shoot of 2014.  Such a beautiful family.  The daughter and mother of this sweet girl was sick and wasn't able to make it to the shoot but we still captured memories.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!!

Christmas Boudoir Marathon http://sunnynights.biz/blog/2012/10/christmas-boudoir-marathon

I have spoke with many girls that have stated an interest in doing Boudoir Photography.  I have decided to do a Boudoir Marathon just in time for Christmas and Valentine's Day presents.  There will only be 6 available slots and I plan on them filling up quickly.  

 

Turn the music up, bring a little something to drink and lets have fun!  I absolutely love watching women start from first pose of being shy to ending with showing their full personality and having a blast.  This marathon can be done one on one with me the photographer or get a group of friends and have a blast being a woman.  

 

We will have several different sets available for different poses and outfits. If we have enough women sign up for the marathon we can open up another day for more than 6 openings.  

 

There will be a $25 booking fee that has to be returned with our contract.  Your time slot will be reserved as pending until we recieve the booking fee and our signed contract. The remainder $100 will be due at the time of the Photoshoot.  You will get a free 8x10 with your choice of pose. All edited images will be in a password protected folder for 30 days for you to view and purchase.  We will also have Disc's available for purchase as well. 

 

Please message me with the time slot you would like along with your email address so I can email you the contract along with our mailing address for the booking fee and contract to be sent to!  

 

I promise this will be a day of fun and one you will always remember!  Let the fun begin!

2012 Easter Mini Season http://sunnynights.biz/blog/2012/5/2012-easter-mini-season We were truly blessed by this year's turn out for our Easter Mini Sessions.  We actually tried something a little different and not only did pictures here in Lubbock but we went back to my home town of Jayton, Texas and set up a scene in the Kent County General Store.  It had been close to 10 years since anyone has come to Jayton and set up for pictures so it was a great turn out.  I had such a blast this year.

Kyley 10 Days Old http://sunnynights.biz/blog/2012/1/kyley-10-days-old This was by far a great and exciting Newborn shoot. Jacqueline and Mark contacted me the end of August about capturing their Maternity Pictures.  (Which are already blogged)  I received a text message from Jackie that Miss Kyley was here.  We went and visited them in the hospital and oh how cute she was.  10 days later they came to our studio and spent about 4 hours with me.  Here are some of my favorites!! 
 


 



 
And my favorite for last.....This pose only took 30 minutes to capture!!!  Such a little blessing!!

They left North Carolina just in time for the hurricane to go directly over there house. They are an amazing couple expecting there first little girl, Kyley. I was blessed to be able to meet them and share in this moment.  Enjoy the sneak peak!!
