Little Man J.

I am proud to introduce this little guy to everyone. He was just so sweet, I mean with those cheeks, the hair, the baby blues how could he not be right! Top it all off with a fun Mom & Dad and this guy is set for life! The best part - his favorite thing to smile, Dad impersonating Darth Vader. See I told you the J. is cool already!

A Recent Session(s)!

Sorry I have been so behind on posting sessions! Both of these clients have already received their galleries, but I still have to share the cute faces with everyone!

First we have the sweetest brothers!

And my buddy J. I have LOVED seeing him grow, since he was just 6 weeks old. Now here he is a big boy in a big boy room! (and soon to be big brother!)

Wow you guys are quick! I received my winning email at exactly 8:30 this morning! Congrats to Jill P, she will receive a complimentary 11x14 and a mini session gift for a friend. How exciting!

Thank you to the many many clients who emailed to participate. It was great for me to read everyones thoughts on the new site. Everyone's favorite aspects were exactly what I was trying to achieve for my clients, so I am so happy about that!

Thanks again and congrats to Jill!

It's New & It's Here!

The new website for SH Portraits! It's bigger, better and most importantly user friendly for my clients. Client slideshows, proofing and ordering all in the same place as the website. Now that I am sure you will all love!

Since I am so excited to share in this with all of my great clients. . . .I have to do a contest!

The first current or past client to email me and tell me what their top three favorite things are about the new site will receive an 11x14 of their choice from a previous session (or to use at a future session) and they will receive a complimentary gift certificate for a mini session to give to a friend. Your friend must not be a current/past client of mine though, so share the love!
