My last post was from a little over a year ago about me having twins and taking a break from photography. Well, my girls just turned 1 and for all those that have been wondering yes I am back and taking sessions again. Also, I have moved to Silt, CO- which doesn’t really change much, as I still service the same areas. I am currently in the process of getting a new blog so I probably won’t be posting anything else on this except where to find my new blog. (It will be through my website http://ashleymickelsonphotography.com). I don’t want my last post to read I’m taking a break… so here are some photos of my girls first birthday cake smash. Lots more photos from this past year will be posted later on the new blog. Thanks!
For those who didn’t know- I am expecting twins and am scheduled for a c-section in a week. So I will be taking some time off from photography to focus on my young family, as I have 2 other young children at home as well. As if having newborn twins (and 4 kids under the age of 4) isn’t going to be stressful enough- we are also moving to Silt, CO. So we will see how things go- but I’m not going to plan on taking any photography clients for the next year or so. I’m hoping to be able to take newborn photos of my twin girls- but we will be packing up and I will be recovering from surgery- so we will see! Hope to share some images of my new family soon!
I also need some updated photos of my two boys before I get too busy with newborn twins! These are my last photos from May when my youngest was 18 months.
This is definitely one of my favorite photo shoots recently. It was so much fun! These girls are great to work with. But their mom is the amazing one that makes it all happen. She always dresses and accessorizes her girls so beautifully. But with this photo shoot- she and her husband made this cool lemonade stand. Her husband was a champ and help move the stand in a cool location for us- which wasn’t an easy task- because this is a very nice sturdy stand. I felt bad because I requested it be brought here but couldn’t help move it due to me being pregnant. The girls regularly sell lemonade, snow cones and candies from this stand! Isn’t it amazing! After this photo shoot- I had about 30 lemons to make fresh lemonade from! Lemonade is one of my faves! I have since had to continue making fresh lemonade- way too yummy!
This is one of our favorite families! They help our family out so much- my boys adore everyone of them. Check out their family portraits- such a cute family!
This my beautiful friend Tawny. We did these photos for her birthday. She was kinda worried about turning 30 and feeling old. So I told her we’d go out and take some pics like at least I used to do for fun all the time in high school. Things haven’t changed much for me… I still love doing it! And doesn’t she look great?!
This adorable boy is 1 years old! Such a cutie- he was sure loving that cake! Click the link below to see a slideshow of our favorite images from the photo shoot.
