Return of the Jedi: Arden Photography

It's no secret that we're days away from the biggest movie of the year.  I've always been a huge Star Wars fan, so you can imagine my excited when I found out I would be photographing Ewoks! JJ and Elliot surprise me every year with a different costume for our shoot.  I must say, this is the most fun I've had since I was a child.  I honestly didn't mind the fact that everyone stopped and gawked at the grown woman having a sword fight with sticks.  After all, as the photographer, I had to embody some of the Ewok's character.  This shoot literally made me count down the days until I'm running to a theater for a matinee and popcorn!  I hope you love these photos as much I enjoyed photographing these two adorable kids, I meant Ewoks.  Here are a few of my favorites!

Spencer Kids: Arden Photography

How stinking adorable are these faces?! Capturing kids in their natural element - whether it is at home, at the ball field, or the playground - it's easiest to snap real smiles when they're comfortable and "at home." And the cool thing about this shoot was that we did take these shots at their home. They wanted to show me a little bit of everything they love doing, and I was amazed at how well they got along together, being siblings and all! Cute kids alert for sure! 

Family Portraits: Arden Photography

Family portraits are some of our favorite shoots to do! We love getting to know the family and watching the kids grow up over time as we often photograph the family more than once. We met Melissa at the Botanical Gardens with her two adorable children - I mean look at that red hair! Like mother, like daughter, right? 

Fall comes and goes so quickly around here! Be sure to book your fall family portraits now!

Jamie Wilson: Holiday Portraits

It’s beginning to look a lot like the Holidays, especially around the Wilson household. The trees are decorated, the presents are wrapped and there’s a special gift that arrived a few days ago. Charlee Kate is now the big sister to a beautiful baby brother, Beckham. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of photographing the dynamic duo for their holiday portraits. Charlee Kate is such an amazing big sister! I had a wonderful time and I can’t wait to do it again next year!

Robert Lamkin: Arden Photography

I had such a wonderful time photographing Robert last week at the Botanical Gardens. This “flower loving” toddler sure knows how to win a girl’s heart! We smelled the roses, admired the perennials, and crashed his dumped truck a few times! Robert’s expecting twin siblings in a few weeks, so we took this opportunity to have a “one on one” photoshoot! Here a a few of my favorites.
