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!

Been a while...

Well, it seems like it's been a while... This week our family was 'knocked' down with the stomach bug! Ugh--no fun! First hubby got it, then Maddie came home with it and that evening I ended up with it. I'm hoping that's where it ends... That Caleb and Haidyn stay well.

We're finally all on the mend. I hope to be back soon with a sneak peek from this past weekend's shoot. One of my favorite little guys is almost 1! We did his 9 mos. shoot and the boy was walking. Yes! WALKING!

So, here's to continued health to our family and I'll be back soon! I promise!


Just happy to be here...

Yesterday, I got to meet the sweetest little girl (aren't they all?)... She had the most precious lips and turned up nose--watch out Daddy, be ready for this little one to have you wrapped so tight around her pinky!

I thought this one was cute... Almost like she is saying, "Just happy to here!"

Thank you G family for having me out... She is a sweetie! Enjoy every moment, they grow up so fast... I'll let you know when your proofs are ready.


Almost B-O-O-K-E-D!!

Wow! I have such awesome clients... Here it is, first day of fall and I have 4 weekend session openings left for clients needing holiday cards: 10/3, 10/4, 10/10 and 10/25. All afternoon sessions--no morning sessions left. I do have some weekday availability, but those sessions are limited due to my 'other' life as a mom. I love the repeat clients that come back to me year after year and then the new ones I get to meet each year!

So, if you're thinking of a holiday session to get some captures for a one of a kind card, don't wait much longer... The openings might be gone before you know it!

Can't wait to hear from you!


3-for-1 Special!

Not really! But when I get to photograph my sweet nieces and nephew, it can seem like a 3 for 1 special... It's hard to believe that 2 short years ago their mommy was in the hospital keeping them cooking for as long as possible and here they are now... Almost 2! We had a fun afternoon shoot this past weekend, heat and all! Many props to my hubby who came along to help--he's pretty goofy, so we put him on 'smile-duty'! Looks like it worked...

Big share, but how could I not share a lot when they're this cute and they're related to me... LOL! Plus with three... Well, you get the idea! Here ya go!

I hope you enjoy them. I couldn't keep from smiling while editing these... Brought back memories of all we went through to get these smiles and expressions. I'm thinking we succeeded though! Thanks again!


JC-Original gets a Facelift...

So I've been talking about a little surprise and it's here... JC-Originals Photography got a facelift. You'll have to go check it out! I'm still tweaking stuff here and there, but it's going well so far. I am excite to have large photos now and client proofing that is password protected. The client proofing also allows for shopping right there on the site with a shopping cart. I'm hoping that will make ordering a much smoother process for most.

Oh and it might be slow to load the first time, but I'm looking into seeing how to eliminate that... I think it has to do with the size of the images, but if I can optimize them more, then it'll be faster.

Let me know what you think!

Visit the new site!


So many smiles...

All my baby planners are growing up right before my eyes! I love watching them grow and seeing how big they are at each appointment, but then again, it means they're growing up... Wah! Today, I went to see Miss K... She is 6 months old now. I'm sure you'll recognize her, especially once you see her little Lamby. He makes an appearance at all her sessions to show how much she's grown. I think it's going to be so neat to have a montage of these shots at the end of her first year.

So onto our session...

We had to show of those pretty blues by wearing a blue dress!

There's Mr. Lamby!

Full of smiles!

The next two are for daddy... Little Spurs Fan!

In her tutu that grandma made...

Baby bed...

This one was cute... She caught her reflection in the plexi-glass!

A couple more of Lamby.

And check out the chub--oh, I love it!

Princess in Purple...

Thank you S Family! Miss K was sweet as ever... She was so much fun today!


A living doll...

I went to visit Miss A this past week and oh my goodness, has she grown and gotten even cuter! She was such a model newborn session and did just as well for her 3 month session... We put the little girlie through several outfit and bow changes! Just wait baby girl--one day you'll be doing this on your own and mommy will tell you to stop changing clothes! I know because I did the same thing as a child and now I have a child that does it too. So funny!

Okay, well on to our sneak peek...

We had to get a pose like this... We got an awesome one at her newborn session with her eyes wide open, so it's always neat to show similar poses as they grow.

The happy family... Well, minus the doggies--maybe one day!

Daddy's girl!

Mommy & Me

She had to model some of her new dresses she had gotten...

Both polka dot!

Yes, that's what little girls are made of...

Look at how strong she is!

I love this--smiling at mommy...

I love the eye contact!

Little growth item--her blankie with her name... You might remember it from her newborn session.

My FAV! I whipped up this tutu the day before our session after picking up this hat and flower in Canton a couple of weeks ago. Love her serious expression--too bad she did a nose dive right after this!

Thank you D family for having me photograph Miss Ava as she grows up--Can't wait to see how big she'll be at our next session! I'll be in touch when your proofs are ready.
