This is my amazing and loving father Forrest.

Sweet Kynzie Bell

I have been so MIA lately, and it's because I have been so busy taking care of all of my amazing and wonderful clients. So I will be catching up on the blog this week to get everyone up to date.
This little one was simply precious and the sweetest new born, I have been so excited to share her. She let me put her in every position and not one little tear. Just a sweetheart. I was so blessed to capture her, I captured her momma and daddy at their wedding back in July and now we have this little beauty. And I was really lucky to be able to capture her as they live in Louisiana and came home for Thanksgiving and I was given this priceless moment to capture. Thank you so much for coming back to Special Moments Potography, it means the world to me to follow families as they grow! Sorry it has taken me so long to get you a sneak-peek! Enjoy!

The Miller Kids

This time of year things tend to get away from me and before I know it I have gotten myself in a pickle and don't have time to capture my kiddos. Every year I try my best to send pictures to all of our family and friends along with a little letter to let everyone know how our year was. That and it's important to me that all of our friends and family know we are thinking of them this time of year. With that being said I don't want to share the photos I have picked to put on the cards, or it just wouldn't be the same. So I will share a photo of the kids and our loving dogs Lundy and Kai. What a circus that was! Nothing like trying to capture a hyper Jack Russell, a 9 month old Rotty that acts like the 2 year old and neither one of them will cooperate and a bossy 13 year old who tries to control the situation. Let me tell you it's a great combination! But I Love them all~ I was going to capture the chaos and call it "A day and a life in the Miller family". lol...I know we can't be the only ones right?
I would love to take the time to wish everyone a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving and to thank you all for your love and support of Special Moments Photography this year. What an amazing and memorable year it has been! I am truly honored to have so many beautiful, amazing and loving people to photograph everyday! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making 2008 a year of memories for me to!!

Laura and Ryan

I had the best time with you two and am just thrilled and honored that you asked Special Moments Photography to capture you! I know our weather was a little dreary and there was a great chill in the air. But I know we got some great pictures and it was all worth it in the end! Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Gracie Mae

You are SUCH a BEAUTIFUL baby Gracie Mae! I know I always say I am excited to share pictures and that's because I am. I always look forward to sharing a few photos from the sessions and I try as fast as I can to get a few posted. I have the toughest time picking which ones to share. But I have to tell you Gracie Mae is one of my favorites!!! She reminds me of a little porcelin doll, all of her beautiful dark hair. And boy did I have the best time capturing her! I was really looking forward to this session with her as she is at my favorite age for capturing babies, she is 6 months now and I have had the distinct pleasure of capturing her every step of the way! This will beour last session until she turns 1 so I made sure we got a little bit of everything. I think she is already used to all of the photos because I have to tell you there was not a bad photo in the bunch! I hope you like these as much as I do I can't wait to get through them all! Thank you momma and daddy for bringing this beautiful bundle of joy once again!!

Wayte Children

More beautiful children to share, the Wayte family came to me from a photo session package I donated to help raise money for the Montessori School Of Casper. I was delighted and honored to capture these adorable three! Thank you so much Wayte family for purchasing the package and the support for the school. Special Moments Photography is a proud supporter of many orginizations and as a mother myself it's so important to help support our schools.
Wayte family please enjoy this little sneak peek from our session and thanks again! I hope you enjoy the pictures as much I do and I hope to be able to do it again!

My Little-Bo-Peep

So I have been so busy all summer that I have not had a single moment to capture McKenzie at all, she is growing up before my eyes! I have had her halloween costume since July and finally decided to take a little time for a mom and daughter photo session. The last time I did a real photo session with her was back in March she was barely 2 then and she took to this photo session like I have taken pictures of her everyday of her life. Well I have certainly tried and for the longest time she was my one and only model. But I have to tell you she was the master! I wish Dakota was still young enough to do this with! Happy Halloween a little early everyone!
