JC - Originals Photography


Hello and welcome to my blog!

This is where I share sneak peeks with my clients and tidbits of my family through photography. I'm very blessed to be doing what I've always wanted to do... stay at home with my 3 beautiful children and photograph those around me; all with the support of my loving husband. In the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy a little bit of us and my photography! Oh and I love comments... Let me know you're reading and what you like about it!

Mr. C is 9 months!

Mr. C came back to see me yesterday... I can't believe how much he is changing... He's starting to look more like a little boy. I'm sure that by the next time I see him, he will be walking...

This is a big peek... I'd thought I'd share several since we did several different things.

We started out to get one with Big Sis and Lil Brother...

Then we did Mommy and Me!

His growth item...

Another growth item!

Some basket time... All the babies love this basket--no matter how old they are! I don't remember where I got it, but I'm glad that I did...

Cute little booty! He's standing and so close to walking...

Baby Blues!

You know how much 9 mos. olds love Cheerios? Well, I saw this idea somewhere and thought, this would be a great milestone prop for this age. He loved it! I think the funniest thing though was how Caleb cried when we threw away the 'used' Cheerios. He was so sad!

I think I'll make a collage out of this series because there are so many cute captures!

We also did some of big sis for her birthday invitation, but I haven't gotten to those yet... So stay tuned!


She's 4!

And I can't believe it!!

My middle child is 4 today and she's having her 1st out of the house birthday party... She's so excited! She's ready to leave the house now--actually, she was ready an hour ago!

Warning... Freshly born baby picture coming up...



Happy 4th Birthday Haidy-Hoo! We love you!



Do you ever get stumped on what to order and what size? Then start to wonder how you're going to arrange it on your walls? I'm so excited to introduce my new Photo Walls Inspirations. I'll be trying to incorporate one to two with every session to help you visualize how your pictures will look once ordered. You can even customize your design and let me know which images you want in what size and I can give you an example.

Here are a couple I put together last night.

How about something like this above your couch?

Or something like this above the fireplace mantle?

So if you're stumped and need help, just let me know and I'll help you pick the perfect layout for your portraits!


Finally, the rest of Mr. P's Big Debut!

I seriously have such a hard time narrowing down my favorites on this session! There were so many that I liked.

I won't keep you waiting any longer... Here are some of my favs!

Thanks for looking! I'll be in touch when I have your proofs ready!

For some reason, my background is looking wonky... It won't be like that when printed... I think it has to do with my LCD monitor. So disregard for now if you're seeing what I am...


OMG! Look at this cutie I got to photograph today!

This is literally a sneak of a sneak, but I couldn't resist not editing at least one to share! His big sister is just as cute!

Oh and just a little plug... This is my new hat I made! I made a similar one, but in different colors, however, I gave it to my SIL who is due to have a baby next month... So keep your eyes open for that one because I'm sure we'll use it at our shoot.

Okay, enough chatter--look at this cutie! Usually I do newborns about a week old or less, but this guy was almost 9 weeks... So I was pleasantly surprised when we got these sleeping pics!

Oh and if you will, leave me some love... My blog is feeling neglected these days!

Okay, I snuck in a little more time to do one more... Proud big sister!


Happy Valentine's in 2009! (from Maddie)

Here is a sampling of Maddie's V-Day card from this year.

Her teacher loved it and said she had to pass it around to the other teachers in the K & 1st grade hall.

And yes, my backdrop looks different... It's just how the light hits it affects the color and since I'm dealing with natural light, I can't always control it. So far, I'm still on the fence if I like the grey.



Recently a friend of mine contacted me to do a little photo-swappin'. See, she's getting into photography and we both know a little about PKS (photographer's kid syndrome). So, what better idea than to swap sessions of our little ones?! Had she not just had a baby when we did our family session, I would have asked her the same back then... BUT--now we've a plan and this year will hopefully be better!

Here's a tidbit from our session last week.

Almost done with the rest... I'll let you know! Oops! And I see a few spots that I need to fix on the backdrop--ignore for now! I'll fix prior to printing!


Caught in the act!

I had to post this picture I ran across as I was proofing them! At first we weren't sure that we caught it, but yep... I caught it!

Let's just say that her segment with daddy was over after this and he went outside to work in the garage. LOL! Love it!

Oh and excuse the minimal editing... I just changed it to b&w and then websized it with my logo.


Out of town...

Just a quick little note that I will be out of town this weekend... I'm actually signing out now and will resume regular business on Monday. If you need to book a session or place an order, please email me through my site or my email is on the left sidebar and I will return all messages when I return.

Have a great weekend!


Garage shoot!

This afternoon the kiddos and I got a little garage shoot underway so we could get some images for Maddie's Valentine's cards. I think the girls were loving modeling for me today! I actually haven't taken many pictures of them lately... I guess between the holiday rush and then business picking back up, I don't necessarily pick my camera up as much as I should for my own kiddos. Little man didn't have his shoot though because I didn't put his V-Day outfit on... Maybe in the next week I'll do his...

Miss Maddie-Moo (Cannot believe how old she is getting & how old she is looking!)

Miss Haidy-Hoo (Miss Thang is going to be 4 this month!)

I did get this series of shots of the trio... I love their little expressions and how they each took turns looking at each other... The whole time I'm trying to get them to look at me and smile and this is what I got! I think maybe 2 of them all looking at me--either way, I love this series!

Well, thanks for looking! Maybe next week I'll post what we came up with for Maddie's card. Once it gets closer to when she's going to pass them out so people don't see them before the fact!
