Families are Forever

This is my sweet photographer friend, Jill Holyoak, and her radiant family. I love and admire Jill and all of my sweet friends and acquaintances who shine with so much goodness. My life is full of so many uplifting people like her, and I'm so thankful for that.

Oh, and one more thing: I love taking pictures of young families! Love. It.

This post has been a few months in the making, but it's time for me to officially announce that unless you're already on the calendar for 2012, I'm taking a break from my photography business next year.   I do intend on picking back up again at the beginning of 2013, though, and I'm really looking forward to that!

In the meantime, I'm excited to take a much-needed breather! But let's be honest, I already have lots of plans for next year, which will include putting together a website and making other improvements to Marie Photographie. I'm also very excited about using this time to help my husband out with Flowers to Go by getting photographs of people and flowers up on the walls of our seven flower shops! :) Stay tuned for opportunities to model!

Also, I'm hoping that over the course of next year (as I get my photography website/blog going), this blog will morph back into a more well-rounded documentation of us and our family life. :)

Thanks for sticking with me!


PS. For those still needing to place print orders this year, if you could get those in by November 20th, that would be awesome! Thanks!

PPS. My post felt naked without pictures, so here are a few photos of some of the cutest babies I know! :)

Mini Shoot in Moses Lake

At the beginning of September, I met up with my sister, Lauren, in Moses Lake. It was a great meeting point because our cousin Scarlet lives there. So, after a quick visit, I got to take a few pictures of her beautiful little family as they played in their front yard for a bit. I thought I'd share a few of my favorites!

Walking on Sunshine

So, I forgot to mention that I went on vacation! I meant to do a post before we left, but just didn't get to it. Anyway, we'll be home from our trip to California soon, but in the meantime I thought I'd post this silly little movie my sister and I made in the middle of the night for our other two sisters who keep missing out on the sister reunions. :)

Cali pics coming soon!

No Place Like Home

I love these people, and I am so glad they had me take their pictures again because it's always such a good time! Here are four beautiful girls (who, by the way, have the most beautiful smiles and flawless skin) that are lucky enough to have parents who adore them and each other. I love photographing families! Anyway, they wanted to stick close to home for their location this year, and these shots were practically taken in their backyard. And while I love getting creative with locations, I also think there's something special about having family portraits done in a place special to a family, and there's no place like home, right? :)

Photographing Shelby could never ever get old! She is so stunning and could easily be on the cover of a magazine--not to mention she's got tons of fashion sense. :) But what's even better, she's so fun to be around. How could anyone not love her??

Anyway, thanks again for being so patient with me about getting your peek up, and for the those still waiting, I am almost caught up! Hurray!

Xo/xo~ Marie
