My Baby Bump & the Rock

This past week or so I got a phone call from a good friend of ours, Megan. She actually photographed our wedding and not only has given us amazing photography pointers, but more importantly, advice on how to actually make a real business out of it!

So when she asked if she could borrow my baby bump for a project she was working on-of course I said yes! Then she told me she wanted to take pictures at The Freedom Rock...to which I thought, "Well OK why not!?". Then she dropped another funky idea-"And I want Bubba to paint on your belly to blend in with the Rock."

Now my mind started thinking-"What in the world is she up to!?" But Bubba and I are usually up for anything creative so we were way excited! Here is a picture Bubba snapped of Megan doing her thing. I hope to get to view the pictures soon and I will share them once I do. It was so much fun seeing her work and I know the photographs are going to be amazing-just like our wedding pictures were! Oh and yes, the paint on my belly was completely safe for baby... ;-)

A little background on what Megan is doing: she's photographing all kinds of baby bumps at unique locations and plans on putting a book together; kind of like a women's/mother empowerment thing. I'm sure I'm not explaining this as great as she can but once I get some more details from her and she finishes the project, I will definitely share more!

Thanks again, Megan. It was great seeing you and I wish you the best of luck with all the exciting things you have in your future!

It's getting close!

Wanted to share some of the preparation we've been doing for our little one on the way. Bubba's been busy finishing the paintings & murals in her room whenever he gets some free time. And let me tell you-these days, it's not a lot! He's been booked with murals and artwork and well since I'm getting bigger by the day, he's been stepping in as the main photographer, too.

Below is a little collage of Indie's room. It makes me so excited to meet her and bring her home! We didn't really go with a theme, as Bubba said, he just sort of painted what came to him. And I don't think it could have turned out any better! It's an assortment of little birds, monkeys, butterflies and other fun/girly stuff hidden and painted throughout her room. Some of them are above or below a window or even behind a door; we're hoping it makes it very fun for her!

He held onto his tradition of hiding his own little messages, too. Her initials are hidden in the tree and also the orange butterfly has the word "DAD" in its wings. I know she'll have fun finding these messages when she starts to grow up-but hopefully not too fast! :-)

We also found some free time one Sunday to shoot my maternity pictures. Bubba did a great job and it's just the way I would have shot them; very simple and natural! We put the camera on a tripod and self timer for the photos that include us both; that was interesting trying to get "the shot!" To view all of the pictures, visit www.sorensenstudios.us, click on the "client" tab and type in: 9511 Although, I did share a good chunk of them here...I got a little excited!

Just a few more weeks and we'll be sharing some pictures of our newest addition, Independence June Sorensen!

Family from Greece

Right now our family from Greece is visiting for the wedding reception of my brother, Mario and sister-in- law, DeNae. Visiting is my aunt, Angela and her granddaughter well...Angela (it's a Greek thing).

Neither speak English all that well but I think they're enjoying their time here! My dad's family all still lives on the island of Crete; where they farm olive trees. My brothers and I were all baptized there and have many fond memories of visiting from our childhood. I can't wait to go back some day (hopefully soon) and of course when little Indie comes along and grows up a bit-we'll take her too! Also-totally dying to take a professional camera along this time. My little disposable cameras from when I was younger didn't quite do the land justice! ;-)

Anyway, I asked my mom to bring by little Angela by the studio to get some pictures. She was so excited and I gotta say we really had a fun time together! My Greek isn't the greatest these days but hey-that didn't stop the photos from being amazing! Check em out-below are a few of my favorites. To view all of her photos, just visit www.sorensenstudios.us, click on the "client" tab and type in 83011. By the way, I haven't seen this girl since she was as baby-my has she grown!

p.s. love the she wanted a picture with the American Flag...of course we had no problem finding one of those around the studio!

Faust Family

Hello Bloggers!

Sorry about our absence but we've been so busy with shoots, we haven't really had time to blog about it.
Now that we've caught up, well as much as possible anyway, I'm ready to show you what we've been up to. Also-please keep in mind I've been trying to accomplish everything with a very active baby constantly jabbing at my stomach and punching my bladder... ;-) Oh how I do love it though!

Below is a shoot we recently photographed featuring The Faust Family. We really had a great time with them and hope they did as well. I kept telling them that for such a large bunch, they were making my job a breeze as their children were so sweet! Sure we had to make some goofy faces and hold a toy parrot here and there but that's just an every day thing here at Sorensen Studios!

Please click on the photo to view a larger image/more info. As you can see, they received many beautiful products with their photography package including our Drift Wrap (comes ready to hang-no framing needed!), 5x7 Photo Book and Customized Disc featuring all of their photos from the shoot. To see how a family session is with us and view all of the Faust Famiy Photos, please visit: www.sorensenstudios.us, click on the "client" tab and type in: 8611

If you are interested in family photos with Sorensen Studios, please please check our online schedule first, at this time we only have two available sessions in September. Shoot us an email or give us a call at: sorensenstudios@yahoo.com | 641.343.7110
