the wickard family

I'm always excited to shoot family pictures for the Wickards! They are some of our closest friends and I just adore little Maddie! I can't wait to meet their new little girl...due in December! The image of Tim with Maddie on his shoulders might be my most favorite family pictures I've ever taken! Oh...and I have to thank Tim's mom for helping me out on the shoot. She's a great bubble blower:)

new branding...sneak peek!

So I've actually had this logo for MONTHS now, but have be trying to get everything else (new blog, website, etc.) put together. I can't stand it anymore...I'm so excited about it so I thought I'd give everyone a sneak peek:) I think it's definitely time for Shelly Valentine Photography to have a fresh new look! I've always been in love with watercolor...it's soft, organic, unstructured, spontaneous...I could go on and on, but I'm sure I'm getting a little too artsy for all of you:) Anyways...Christen and Elizabeth from Quakenbush Design came up with my logo and I can't thank them enough for all their talent and hard work! They were amazing to work with! I've still got a lot to do before all this will get launched...but stay tuned!

How gorgeous is this family?!?! I don't think any of them could have taken a bad picture! Charlotte is such an adorable little girl with lots of energy!!! I definitely got a little work out chasing her around, but I had so much fun doing it! Charlotte is going to be a big sister in just a few months...I know...doesn't Shauna look amazing!!!
