it's all fun and games

...well most of the time!!

This session was so much fun and to me a prime example of why custom photography is so great. I can take the time to get to know my clients, make them feel comfortable with me and just let them be them. I'm not trying to rush them through their scheduled time slot, parents aren't stressing out and kids aren't screaming or crying(well most of the time). :)

This allows me to capture them as they are at this moment in their precious lives!

Noah and Brandon thanks for the fun guys. You sure are adorable!!

a yummy giveaway

A yummy giveaway indeed!!!

It's been a while since I've had a fun contest/giveaway so when my good friend Mario over at Odyssey Cakes asked if I wanted to team up for one I jumped at it. He's offering a free mini-Mother's Day cake to one of my lucky readers. And if you aren't THE lucky winner you will still receive an awesome price on your order. :)

So here is a sample of what you could win for yourself or a deserving mom that you know...

Here's how to enter...

1) Just leave me a comment and you get 1 entry.
2) Go and visit Odyssey cakes and come back and tell me what your favorite cake is and get an additional entry.
3) Become a fan of Michelle Peterson Photography on facebook and get an additional entry. (if you already are then leave a comment saying you are) :)
4) Repost this contest on your blog or fb page and get 2 additional entries. (must be public so I can verify):)

So you have 5 chances to win!! So easy!!

Contest ends Monday 4/19 and winner will be announced Tuesday 4/20. Good luck!!

*You do need to be local to win this one. Cake can be delivered free of charge within 20 miles of zip 92404. If you live out of town and have a deserving mom in the area this might be a nice surprise for her!

my session...well kinda

Last month my bff Jen came out for a quick visit. And I do mean a quick visit! While she was here I just had one request from her "please get a family picture for me!!!"

I have tons of pictures of my kiddos, as you can imagine, but as for a family shot...not so much luck. It's been over a year since we attempted one with the good old tri-pod! It took a lot of insisting on my part to get her behind the lens, but the idea that I only needed one decent image and that fact that I agreed to do all the editing finally won her over.

Thanks for going with the flow my rocked it! Can't wait for our next visit!! Love ya!! xoxo

More like us on an everyday basis :)My favorite guys!!
I swear she really does love me...really she does!!The princess!Thanks Jen for the rocked it girl!
