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!

My 21st shoot this month, that is... Wow! A big thank you for my clients--old and new. This has been a great month! I'm definitely blessed that so many of you have chosen me to be your family photographer this month--those of you that came back, those of you that are new and those of you that will continue to come back year after year.

Now, onto shoot number #21... A baby planner. Mr. C and his big sister.

Such a serious little guy...

Checking me out!

There's a laugh!

So funny!

I'm loving the profile shots...

Baby toes--look how they're almost 'grabbing' each other.

Big sister holding the baby.

Little elf...

Wanna guess what size he is wearing?? He's a pretty big boy for 3 months old!

Santa hat.

Ahh, sweet kisses from sister!

She does love her baby brother!

Thank you J family... I'm glad we were able to capture some sweet moments for you! I hope baby C took a good nap for you once we left.

The last of the Christmas bunch...

A few days ago, I had the last of my holiday shoots... It was a fun shoot--3 kids all similar age gaps as my crew, so I could definitely relate to this mom. You might recognize this beautiful bunch from the Spring when I did baby sister's newborn portraits. They are a stunning family and I was excited when she contacted me. This time, I got to meet dad too!

Here are some of my favs from the session--the weather was gorgeous! Definitely not common weather for November...

Who'd of thought we'd get a keeper within the first 5 minutes of our session? How great is this?
Where it all started!

Love the sky in this one and brother doing what he does best--being a monkey!

Yes, the stacked family is one of my favorite poses!

OMG! An all time fav--how beautiful is this light? Love it, love it, love it!

This one too!

I always like to include a b&w or two, but it was hard to pick one out since I loved the touch of red with black!

I think this is my fav family one! Just gorgeous...

Big sister!

The brother--love his eyes!

Baby sister!

One last one for good measure!

Thank you L family! You have a beautiful family and I enjoyed hanging out with you all. I'll be in touch soon so we can get your card designed!


Those eyes...

Mr. L has some of the most handsome eyes... He's a baby planner of mine, so you probably will recognize him. He's now 7 months old and sitting like a pro. As you have probably been able to tell, several of my baby planners are very close in age, so it's neat seeing each of them hitting these milestones together.

We did some fun stuff and worked as fast as we could since we knew naptime would get there before we knew it. I think we got some mighty cute stuff too!

His sweet profile!

Little elf...

Little man!

Daddy's little man!

Standing tall.

I love this one--aren't his eyes gorgeous?

The family...

This series called for a collage... Love his many expressions and then him looking up at his parents!

Cute little vest--so popular with the little boys lately!

Drummer in the making--music is in his blood!
Sleepy time... We tried to see how far we could push him--we still had a couple of things we wanted to do, but once he saw his blankie and monkeys, he was ready for naptime. So sweet!

Thank you R family! Hopefully Mr. L got a good nap and was a happy boy the rest of the day for you two. Have a great Thanksgiving and I'll be in touch.


For a good cause...

Earlier this year, an old co-worker asked me if I'd like to donate a photo session to an auction. I'd never done it, but I thought, why not? This particular benefit was for the Promise House... It is an organization that embraces homeless, runaway and at-risk teens, giving them needed support, encouragement and hope to live a better life. Pretty cool deal...

Well, about a month ago, the family that bid on my session contacted me. How cool is that? I had a bidder. LOL! We set up the session and this past weekend, I went to meet the R family. Let me tell you--the R family was so fun! My cheeks were hurting at times from smiling and I was the one taking the pics, not the one getting my pics taken.

So thank you R family! I truly enjoyed meeting your family and thank you for selecting me to photograph your family. You have a beautiful family that was definitely a load of fun!

Oh and did I mention, how gorgeous they were?!


Miss A here is about to graduate college!

Then this is Miss T. She's a workin' girl--in a pretty cool field!

A fun shot...

The parents...

This one too...

Mom said she liked close-ups, so I had to come out of my comfort zone and get a little closer than I usually do!

Back at the house!

You probably can't read it, but the plaque has their name and when they were married.

Aren't they gorgeous?

Fun on the stairs!

One more!

Thank you R family for such a fun session--you definitely put my mind at ease once I met you all. I can only imagine how fun your house is at get-togethers. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
