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!

I am BACK!

Well, the Mac ended up not being as sick as we thought... Thank God! It was just being a little testy and needed some new devices added. Whew! Lot less expensive than we were thinking. I've been hard at it today trying to catch up as fast as I can. I have several proofing sessions that need to be completed and several orders to place.

I really appreciate my clients being ever so patient with me... It means so much to have clients that are so understanding when things happen that are out of our control. I'll be in touch with each of you as I complete your tasks. Hope everyone stays cool and enjoys the rest of your weekend!

I'll be here at my computer if you need me. :p

Oh and maybe if I get caught up to a good point, I'll actually post some pics... I just realized my last several posts have been text only. Pics would be nice, huh?


Falling oh so behind...

I'm still in the middle of computer troubles... The Mac actually went down for the count last night. We're trying to get it up and running, but so far nothing today. We may actually be looking to get another one. It wasn't exactly on the 'list' of need-to-buy, but it's quickly rising to the top. I hope tomorrow I'll have a more solid answer.

I also want to thank my current clients for their patience. I'm doing all I can at this point and hope to be back in business sooner than later. I've never been this behind before and hope to never be again.

Until next time!


Under the Weather...

So, not only did I bring a little cold home from teaching VBS last week, my computer picked up something also. I know I mentioned recently the issues I've been having and it's now come to a point that I'm going to have to send it away and get it resolved. I was doing all I could to avoid it, but it is really slowing down my workflow--to the point that I have no workflow!

As my wonderful hubby has mentioned, 'to increase production, your going to have to stop production for a bit'. I hope it is very short-lived because my editing software is only Mac and our other computers are PC's so while the Mac is down I cannot do any editing.

Thanks for understanding and I'll update as I can.


Happy Father's Day!

Just a quick post to wish the fathers in my life a Happy Father's Day...

My dad, my husband, my brother and my Heavenly Father. Hope today has been a great Father's Day.

And of course, I can't post without a few pics... Remember my friend that I photo swapped with back in the early part of the year? Well, we got together for her to return the favor... She photographed me and the little ones for Kev's Father's Day gift.

These 3 were my favs!

This one was my absolute fav of the bunch!

Well, better get back to work... I'm so behind it's not funny. And to my clients that are waiting on proofs--I'm doing my best. Thank you so much for being patient and understanding! Lots of sessions plus computer woes doesn't make the work flow as fast as I hoped.

Oh and a Happy Father's Day to my clients... Whether it be your first or not, I hope it's a great one!


Meet the J Family!

This past weekend (yes, I am behind on my sneak peeks) I met the J family. Mom actually works with some of my past clients and that is how she found me. There was actually one session in particular that she really liked and wanted something just as special for her family.

We were able to capture several moments for them... The kids were very cooperative! They're actually very close in age to my oldest two. And it definitely doesn't hurt when the family is as beautiful as this one!

I'm sure you know by now, but it's a big sneak... I just can't manage to do less--I love sharing my favs!

Family time...

Daddy Time...

Mommy Time...

Just the kids! LOVE this!

Casual family...

Even a little more casual family...

Hanging out with the old farm stuff...

Just the boy...

Gotta get a walking one!

More family...

Another of the kids... Isn't this sweet?

Just the girl!

Family by the water...

Little girlie was talking about her favorite princesses here...

Dad and his boy!

Daddy's girl!--Can you find what's out of place here? I'll fix it before it goes to print, but thought it would be funny to leave on the sneak peek!

Mommy and her little girlie-girl!

Mommy and her little man!

Thanks for looking! And thank you J family. I am glad to have met you all and hope you enjoyed your sneak peek. I will be in touch when the proofs are ready!


Super Mini-Session!

When Mr. A came to see me a few weeks ago to capture his first birthday, he wasn't quite so sure of the whole photoshoot thing... He did great, but just no smiles due to a skipped nap! Which is usually what happens on picture day--something out of the ordinary! So we set aside a super mini-session to try to catch some sweet one year old smiles on a day that he had a nap.

And we got them! I thought I'd share a few of my favorites from that session... I'm a little late getting this sneak out, but better late then never!

Thank you for coming to see me again, Mr. A! I knew there were some smiles in there...


Mr. Eyes... Oops! I mean Mr. C is 6 months...

Mr. C invited me to come see his new tricks this past weekend... He turned 6 months old and is sitting like a pro! I swear he has the most gorgeous eyes I have seen on a baby... Watch out mom and dad--the girls will be knocking on your door!

Mom had seen the little blue car I've been using and asked me to bring it along for his session... You see, daddy is into cards and Mr. C's room is actually done in an antique car theme. So what better prop, then the little blue car!

So first we started out with the car...

Check him out driving the car... His expression is priceless!

These are some of his cars from his room...

Check out those lashes!

His blanket that we've been photographing him with since he was 6 days old.

His mom was playing a little game here with his burp cloth... I love that I caught his little expression!

He loved my white blankie... Come to think of it, he's loved it every time I've photographed him.

Sitting tall!

Little man in the tie!

Standing with daddy! He looks like he's one-legged, but I promise he wasn't... He was jumping all around. He loved standing!

Thank you again for letting me capture Mr. C's first year. He is a joy to photograph and so handsome!

I'll be in touch to when the rest are ready!

Newborn Overload...

Oh my goodness... I knew this was going to be a big sneak while I was photographing this precious newborn. She was 16 days old for our session and probably by far my favorite session to date... I probably say that after all my newborns! I think after each one I just love doing them more and more. I joke with my hubby that I think I could do them non-stop (almost exclusively).

Okay, well, I'll stop my jabbering and let you see this beauty!

We started with a little mommy and me stuff...

Then went on to do some daddy's little girl...

Then baby girl got to be the star... An awake shot.

But it wasn't long and she was out for the count.

Then we finished up with a couple shots of the new family.
I love this one...

Thank you D family for having me come photograph your precious baby girl. I enjoyed every minute of it and have enjoyed picking my favorites. There are many more! I'll be in touch when the rest are ready.

**Oh and be sure to scroll down for two other posts from tonight... I'm trying to catch up from this weekend and then computer woes.
