A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking this little doll’s newborn photos. We decided to get together for some family photos since her daddy had to work during the other session, and I am SO glad we did. I’m just in love with these images.
They are completely and totally in love with that girl.
I love how it shines.
And even though she was not very happy to see me, she did give me this little gem.

Or at least my family.
It’s been a long time since I’ve done a personal post,
and since last night I found three folders full of personal images that I’ve
NEVER EVEN TOUCHED,
I thought it was well past time!
Well, I was going to start out with the oldest, but I realized that so many of these summer photos featured him without a shirt. He is very much against online shirtless photos, so here are two that I don’t think I’ve ever shared.
Rocking out with John’s guitar.
And playing at a local playground.
And a few from this summer.
That poor turtle. He wanted to keep it as a pet, but forgot to take it back home with him.
I found it roaming the kitchen and so I let it go.
Our little Kindergarten graduate.
She looks completely like her dad in this one.
The dress she is wearing is an adult dress, one I’ve kept over the years even though I can’t wear it anymore. I had actually pulled it out to donate when she spotted it and now it is in their dress up trunk.
Days before she lost her top tooth.
Just a wee bit excited about the lost tooth.
And the baby. Sweet, sweet girl who is a tiny little ball of energy right now, so I’m just happy with anything I get from her!!
This is what she thinks of my camera these days.
And messes are her thing.
So, there you have it.
Our summer in a nutshell.
We kinda rock.

Everyone enjoying your summer? Maybe melting more than enjoying? Yeah, same here.
This summer has been a huge learning experience for me. I’ve been busy with the business, with my family, going across the country, and just learning to balance it all.
I’ve quickly learned that I’m not balancing it very well.
I’ve found myself staying up later, working more during hours that I had originally dedicated to family time,
and still the timeline from the start of the session until my clients had their disc/prints/products
was just stretching out way too long for my satisfaction.
So, what’s a girl to do when faced with such a lesson?
Well, this girl sat down and really thought about what I could change to make it easier.
Easier for me, my family, and my clients.
After tons of soul searching, including a brief moment of insanity when I considered closing RLP’s doors,
I came up with a solution.
I’ve been mostly digital for the last two years, but I still had print credits and reference prints and products included in my collections.
This was great because I love to offer these things for my clients, but the additional work was really slowing down my timeline.
I just wanted SIMPLE.
So I created it.
once they book the session.
And this means that by the time I send out the password to the gallery,
the disc will already be ready to be sent in the mail!
Yes, that’s right.
You can expect your disc to be sent to you within fourteen days of your session.
Now that’s the kind of timeline I can love!
Does this mean that RLP is no longer going to offer great products like beautiful image boxes or gorgeous albums?
They will still be offered, just a la carte.
I’ll still upload the images in an online gallery, will still offer professional quality prints as well as my line of fantastic products to really showcase your session.
I think this is going to be a really great thing.
