Gorgeous Ginger | Las Vegas Photographer

I melted when I took these images. We had the best light, a beautiful red haired girl with the best freckles and i even found a green patch to make it all pop together for these stunning images. I could tell when I was taking them that they were just going to be so lovely. She had the best smile and easy personality. Take a look at this beauty – watch out mom she’s going to be a heart-breaker!!!

Little Lady! | Las Vegas Child Photographer

Yay, finally some girls to blog about – well ok, I have had these for a bit and once again got lazy on the blogging. But nonetheless, I am excited to share! I was doing a class and was really going for some timeless, emotive images. For me this meant stifling a few of her pretty smiles. This little gal rocked it for me. Isn’t she stunning? I did have to get one of this gorgeous girls’ smile and dimples for her mom at the end though…

Letters to Our Sons | March | Personal Project

I feel like I do a pretty good job about taking pictures and documenting the things we do, the places we go and all your milestones as they grow up. This year I thought I would add some words (although, bear with me, I am not a great writer). A little about what we have been doing each month, preserving bits of their personality and childhood through my eyes and memories. Also another option for me to reflect how fast time is gowing and to cry happy tears each time I write to them. Geeze, I love these kids.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jack,

I am writing to just you this month. You just had your eighth birthday a couple of weeks ago. I can hardly believe you are eight already! I can vividly remember that cold winters day in Anchorage, Alaska when you were born. It was bright and sunny but chilly.  We were so excited for your arrival! You were such a gift! I remember the first days you were home with your dad and I – we had no idea what do with you. But we did the best we would an eventually go the hang of it. You were a good baby.

And now look at you! You have grown into such a little man. I love that your mind is so mature and yearns for knowledge on all these cool things (that I get to learn about now) – rockets, volcanoes, ships… so many “boy” topics. I also think it is pretty cool that most of the time you would rather watch Myth Busters and shows on Discovery Channel about animals or cities etc instead of cartoons or other things.

As mature as the subjects you want to earn about are, you are still a silly, happy, active boy! My heart sings when I hear you and your brother playing pretend games, or you just hanging out being goofy; like the rest of us. You have a wonderful sense of humor!  You are also becoming a great little role model for Carter. Carter loves you so much! I am glad to see after our talk about how much he does love you, and how much you impact him, that you seem to have tried to lead with a better example and let him love you and express it as he wants.

You are heading down a great path in your life…I am always happy you let me hold your hand and walk with you on it!

I love you Jack!

Love | Blog Circle | Personal Project

Well a new year has brought me to a new Blog Circle Group. It is a great way to get energized, be inspired, and try new things. I am in a group of 12 talented ladies all with their own unique perspectives on a different topic each month. This months topic is “Love”.

As usual, time ran short, ideas didn’t get executed quite as I liked. But I do like the challenge and growing through it.  I will share my images; my main loves…my man, my boys, and my cat Kiki (who was there before all of them). I do wish I had the time and creativity to try to capture chocolate, wine, sunny days and more too…

Thank you for looking at my work. You can follow the circle and check out the meaning of “love” for Lindsay Crandall of Lindsay Crandall Photography.

Jessica - Wow. These blew me away Lisa. The depth and story that can be seen from your images is inspiring. Can’t wait to see more from you!

Stephanie - Oh Lisa, the lighting on these photos are gorgeous! Especially the one with you and your husband. Love them. Thanks for sharing your family with us!

Lindsay - These are amazing, Lisa! The first two especially. I’d love to have a photo like that of my husband and me, but I’m not sure he’d go for it. I’m glad yours did. Thanks for sharing these!

Letters to our Sons | February | Personal Project

I feel like I do a pretty good job about taking pictures and documenting the things we do, the places we go and all your milestones as they grow up.

Jack and Carter,

First I want to say that I know your whole short lives you have heard me tell numerous people that I have crazy rambunctious, all boy, boys. I do hope you know that I don’t really ever mean that in a bad way. You guys are happy kids who love life. You have tons of energy, you play hard, and you love hard! It does exhaust me as a mom sometimes with the lack of quiet, or the abundance of things flying through the air, fights and arguments, legos to step over, and baths/showers I plead you to take.  With all that said,  I wouldn’t change it. I am glad you guys are healthy and bounce and play fight on the trampoline, that you run around with your play guns and swords being big, deep voiced, “bad guys” and having fun. You play with each other and love each other most of the time. I sometimes need to be reminded that you are not being naughty kids just because you are being loud and busy – just being kids. Boys. Rambunctious, all boy, boys. I love that you play together and I love you both so much!

And, there are some RARE moments of quiet time here and there… and I am oh so thankful for those brief periods.

 

Reflecting on January…

Jack, we are so proud of your efforts at school. Achieving straight A’s and loving to read and do well makes our hearts soar! You have entered the joke telling phase. I amazed at how many you have in your head that you know by heart. you are also such a keeper of facts. You love reading those learning fact books and seem able to retain it all. I hope this lasts! Your second big tooth is finally about half way in after being missing almost a year. You really are starting to look older, more mature. Luckily for us you still want to be with us and cuddle and love all the time too.

Carter, your year started with strep throat. Luckily we got that under control pretty quick and you were back to feeling better soon. You started homework for the first time in your school. I am excited that you love it so much. You wanted to be just like Jack and sit in the same spot and do it right after school like he does. You are still kind of in love with masks and hats and outfit options. You will surprise me every now and then by disappearing and then reappearing with some crazy get up. You have so much personality wrapped up in you. My favorite thing right now is that you will stop whatever you are doing and occasionally shout “love break!” and come run and snuggle with me.  You have promised you will snuggle with me forever; I am holding you to it!

Love always,  Mommy

I am taking this journey with other moms of boys – you can read their letters too, starting with Kristina Purkey.
