Sweet Baby Bristol

From Belly to Baby

It's always such a blessing to photograph my friends and family.  Whether it is a wedding, a portrait, or a new addition to the fam I feel honored to be their choice of photographer.  So thank you all for allowing me into the special moments of your lives!

I can't even count how many sessions I have had with the Lima Family.  I have been photographing them since their first son was around 6 months old and he just had his 4th birthday!  Christina has become a very good friend and I love that our kids get to grow up together.  Now Christina and Trevor have added 2 more kiddos to the mix making them a family of 5!  They finally got their girl a few weeks ago and I finally got rid of some of Emma's baby clothes!  This next set of photos are of Bristol's journey from belly to basket.

Too funny!  Aren't outtakes the best?!

 

 Love you guys and I can't wait for the many years to come!

2013 at a glance...

promos and deals and minis. Oh my!

Long time no see!! Some how it is March already and I have seriously been slacking on blogging :( I love keeping you all in the know about what I've been up to and my different shoots and I plan on doing a better job of that this year. I have a ton to catch up on and you may have seen some of it on Facebook by now, but I have a to-do list and I plan on checking off every single thing on it! So here goes the first blog of the year (I told you I was slacking!)...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This year I plan on getting my name out there more than every before. I will be having special deals, promos, and mini sessions throughout the year and I would love it if you would spread the word. Here is a list of what I have planned so far and I would love to get some feed back on what YOU would be interested in seeing offered from Haynes Photography.

March

If you follow me on Facebook you may have seen that in March I will be traveling down to Texas(!!) to visit one of my close friends. I will be toting my camera gear with me of course and plan on doing some mini sessions in the Lone Star State! So if you or someone you know lives in the Austin/San Marcos area lets get together and have an awesome shoot! I'll be there for a week starting on the 12th :)

May

mommyandme
As a photographer and mommy I know the importance of taking the time to get IN FRONT of the camera with your kiddos. Too many times we get caught up in their sweetness (or not so sweetness) that we forget that we are a very special part of their lives too! I know that I wish I had more pictures with my mama! So in honor of Mother's Day (May 12th) I will be offering Mommy + Me Minis. It will be an awesome, fun time to spend with your little (or big) ones. I plan on having Sean take some of me and Em too! More details to come.. watch here and Facebook for more info.

June

daddyandme
Read the above and substitute daddy for mommy ;) Father's Day is June 16th and what better way to commemorate the day than a Daddy + Me Mini session?! More details coming soon, so keep an eye out.

July

2014seniorrep
Summer is a great time to get your family portrait done. The nights are long, the weather is reliable (scorching, but reliable none the less LOL!) and the kids are out of school. Besides that I am looking forward to once again recruiting some high school seniors (graduating 2014) to be Haynes Photography's senior rep[resentative]! I had a great time working with 2013 seniors last year and can't wait to do it again; they are so full of life and hope for the future. Plus they are so fun and make my job a breeze. So if you are or know a 2014 high school senior have them check out my Facebook page and find out how to become a Senior Rep.

November
Your annual Christmas card just wouldn't be the same with the family picture from last year. That is where I come in ;) In November and December I will be offering Holiday Mini sessions again. This is my personal favorite time to do photo shoots because the Autumn colors are so beautiful. I know the time around the holidays is hectic which is why these 30 minute shoots are perfect for getting in and out of those scratching sweaters** in no time flat! I'm excited to meet new families and catch up with the ones from the past. Keep an eye out for the details; time flies when you're having fun and before you know it the leaves will be falling!

January 2014
Boudoir Marathon. Oo la la. More information to come...

Lastly... I will be starting a new promo that is good EVERY MONTH! I am now offering birthday shoots for 1-18 year olds! All you have to do is contact me and we will set up a FREE 15 minute shoot in your child's birthday month. I hope to watch these kiddos grow through the years and can't wait to meet some new faces!

BirthdayShoot

That's it for now! I'm so excited for what the future holds for Haynes Photography... here's to another great year!!

The Schimandle Family

[2012]

I have photographed my friend Christina and her little family lots of times, but on this session I got to meet her brothers and their families too! I had a great time doing this mini shoot with all of them. I even managed to get a nice picture of all the kids (2 year old and two under 6 months!), but it wasn’t easy!

Suydam Family [2011]

Plus Eat at Allie's

Here is one more family I had the opportunity to work with this past fall. Meet the Suydam family:

After their family session I did some business portraits for Allie (the mama). She writes a blog called “Eat at Allie’s”. She makes some delicious food then shares the recipes for all to enjoy! Check her out and let her know I sent you.

Fall Family Portraits

[2011]

This past fall I got to meet and photograph some amazing families.  Whether it was for Christmas cards or just to mark a new year with a current picture; i enjoyed spending time with them all.  Now that all the Christmas cards have been delivered it is safe to show you all of the sessions.  I'll be sharing eight families with you in this blog.

The first is the Jensen Kids.  I have known these two before Sammy was even born!  It's hard to believe how big they both are now..

Next is the Smith family.  I LOVE these people, but how could I not?  They are my parents and brothers!  Plus I got to photograph my brother, his girl and their pup :)

Again I got to photograph my own family.  This is my hubby's cousin's family; meet Donell, Adam, Travis and Bailey.

This is the Zimmerman family.

Here is one gorgeous family; from the mama to the kiddos!  Meet Margarita and her gang.

Up next is the Lima family including their newest addition.  Take a look!

This is the Howard family with three generations.

Last, but definitely not least, is the Gallardo (plus Garcia and Rodriguez) family.  This is one BIG family (four-in-one) and I had a blast with them!

Thanks for checking out my fall 2011 families and I look forward to working with you and your family in 2012!

XOXO Casey

Lima Belly

Maternity Session

Lima Belly

The other day I had a shoot with my friend Christina and her boys (Trevor- hubby; Weston- 2 year old; and the one in the belly).   Christina and I have known each other for a few years now and our kids have grown up together since they were only a few months old (now crazy 2 year olds!!).  She is a great mama, friend, and all around fun person to be around.  Plus she was a super good sport as I had her walking, sitting, laying down in all sorts of poses :)  I had an awesome time celebrating her 2nd little boy (who only has 2 more weeks until his arrival) and I can't wait to meet him!

Love you guys!!

XOXO

Little T

IMG_8691This past October 31st was a very special day [and not because it was Halloween]. That was the day that my nephew, Tavion, was born :)
He was 9 weeks early and weighed only 2lbs 12oz. Since he is so small he has to stay in doors until May.
I finally got to meet him last week [I had to get my flu shot first] and he is such a precious boy!
He is 3.5 months old now and almost 9lbs.
When I was photographing him he actually rolled over [for the first time! (twice)];
not only was it the first time I met him, but I was there to witness one of his first milestones :)

Anyways, here is this sweet boy...

Weekend Gataway to Bodega Bay

Fun trip with the family

It's been a while but I'm back to blog!! We've been busy with traveling and illness (basically just life). A couple weeks ago we got to get out of town and decided to go to Bodega Bay. The weather was amazing for this time of year (sunny and NO rain!). It was Emma's first time really playing in the sand; she loved it! It was also her first time getting pink eye :-( However, even with pink eye she was all smiles and had a great time. On the Saturday we went on a long drive along the ocean with Emma sleeping in back for her morning nap. On the way we took a detour to go to a "Community Market" but never found it (on the way back we saw the sign said "Sunday"). The road we took lead us up the mountain and instead of turning around we decided to see where the road would lead. It took us deep into the forrest and turned into a one-lane dirty road. The scenery was absolutely beautiful and was completely quiet. We pulled off the road to walk up some trails near a small creek. We were surrounded by clovers, ferns, and evergreen trees. Once out of the forrest we found a bluesy bbq restaurant in Gualala, "Bones". It was the tastiest bbq I've eaten in a loooonnggg time :)
Sunday we had to leave a few hours earlier then planned because Emma's pink eye spread to the other eye and we had to get her to a Med 7. We all had an awesome time and we can't wait to go back.
