She closed her eyes and breathed it all in. The way it felt to be snuggled in her mommas arms. It took my breath away. Her momma soaked in the snuggles and gave sweet little kisses upon her cheek. This is what love looks like. He was so grown from the first time I saw him as a newborn. He now had a room with hand drawn signs on the door. He loves making books…just like my sweet boy. He’s so big, but loves that he got to jump on the bed, loves being tickled, and, mostly, loves his momma and daddy’s snuggles. Jumping on the bed was a treat and they took full advantage. They jumped with so much pure joy. They made a family “sandwich” where they all piled on top and giggled until they couldn’t breathe. She would spin and spin and spin until she could barely stand. So free. Daddy snuck in sweet little kisses and played airplane with his baby girl while she sang “I believe I can fly!” They made daddy’s special popcorn and laughed with delight as the popcorn popped up out of the skillet and as the salt shaker twisted up and big rocks of salt fell into the bowl. They all devoured the popcorn…extra salt and all. Laura and Cory sat in their spots on the couch and held hands. She looked at him with all the love in her eyes I saw ten years ago. He smiled his great big smile and laughed a little at how it may be a little awkward with a camera in your face. The littles ran through the sprinklers, soaking in the last days of summer. I hope they always run through the sprinklers. {Side note: Grown ups, if you haven’t done this lately, just do it. You’ll thank me later!} A quick change and a quick drive lead us to Keeneland where they ran in the fields and snuggled and tickled and laughed in the golden light. She put her favorite little tutu on and silhouetted against the setting sun. It was perfect. More than I could’ve ever dreamed of when they emailed me for their first session ten years ago while I was still working another full time job. I could never foresee the beautiful sessions, the laughs, the long lunches that would happen over the years. Thankful. Always. Thankful.

p.s. I just sent out a newsletter yesterday with an update in my fall calendar. September, October and the very beginning of November are the best times to get images for the holidays. I have a few spots open in September and 8 in October. LET’S CHAT ABOUT YOUR FAMILY SESSION BY CLICKING HERE.

So much love,

a family lifestyle session in lexington, ky


There's something special about meeting people who are in the same stage of life as you, especially when you meet them in an ultra out of your box hypnobabies birthing class (which I loved, by the way). While most of our time together in class was spent relaxing to self hypnosis tracks, learning things about babies and the female body I never even knew (thanks high school health class), and giving our husbands back rubs (Bret's favorite part, of course), there was still this special bond there. When it came time for us to find a family dentist, I knew who I wanted to go to. Now, at least a few times a year, we get to laugh about our different birth experiences, how we were terrible students, how I'm horrible at dental care, the silliness that ensues when I need gas to calm my nerves before any needles are used to numb my mouth, and enjoy the sweetness of how our lives have changed over the years. 

I love watching Sarah and Ben with W and S and I especially love watching W and S grow and see their sweet little personalities bloom. W will always be a mommas boy, but now you can see his independence all over him and how he looks up to his Daddy. This past year he was so excited to show off his room, but mostly his big cousin. S is a mix of a little firecracker and a bit of fairy. She's the epitome of the term "wild and free" with so much passion in such a little body. I love watching people who close their eyes to soak in a moment. S does this while dancing with daddy or snuggling with mommy. What I love most is that Sarah and Ben just go with it. Sarah calls our sessions unscripted and they truly are, all the way down to the clothes. We just see what unfolds and it makes for a very honest, love filled, lifestyle family session. Also, they have a little gingerbread house filled to the brim with unique artwork...quirky and cute...my dream. 

Okay...here we go...three years of snuggles, giggles, dances, sprinkler runs, standing on daddy's toes, and one year of celebrating a special birthday...

So much love to you,

Cilla

Priscilla Baierlein Photography l Officially the Holiday Season!

Wow! This year has flown by! It is officially the holiday season. It's time to start making a list and checking it twice! If you are looking for that perfect gift for a loved one or adding things to your wish list or just looking to treat yourself ;) Priscilla Baierlein Photography has lots of options that may be just what you're looking for! Gift Cards- Get your friend or family member one of these adorable gift cards and hear the excitement as they open the package. Gift cards can be purchased in any amount to be used towards a session fee or prints.

Holiday Cards- If you've had a session at any point in 2008, you can have a holiday card custom designed, by me, with your beautiful pictures from the session! Cards are designed in the colors you love, with your pictures, and with your special message. All are printed on fine quality linen paper, in 5x7 flat, 5x7 folded, and 5x5 trifold. They come in sets of 25 with white envelopes.

 

Mini Mounts- 3-10x10 mounted images printed on beautiful metallic paper (makes the images "pop" even more) with an embassy texture to top. These look absolutely amazing sitting on easles in an entrance way. You can also hang them straight on your wall, or with a ribbon, or they can be framed.

Fine Art Gallery Wrap Canvas- These are the most beautiful prints on the market. Gallery wrap canvas's come ready to hang. No frames needed. These are basically just like a painting on a canvas, but with your beautiful picture stretched across a wooden frame.

 

High quality prints- Prints are available in almost any size you can imagine. 11x14's and larger come mounted. See sample prints below.

High Resolution Digital Files- Recently added to the list of goodies, you can now purchase high resolution digital files of your images. Having the option to purchase your images on CD allows you the freedom to print however many copies you want in whatever sizes you want them in. You can create your own scrapbooks or albums, quickly frame 8x10's for gifts, or even make your own cards.

10x20 or 20x20 Custom Designed Storyboards- Can't decide what images to get the Grandparents for Christmas? Choose your favorites and get a custom designed storyboard that will include all of them! See sample below.

Here's a sample of one of my newest Christmas card templates.

 I have a ton of sessions to blog about. A more appropriate and extensive blog will be done later, but for now, here is a tease from my latest sessions. There's a bunch of pictures here, so enjoy :) Oh....and I have several weddings to blog about at a later date!
