Prom 2010

A million moms with point and shoots
all in a row flashing like crazy trying to
get the perfect shot of their baby as they
attend one of the biggest events in their
high school careers. This is the norm for
every school. We love to help these moms
out! Let us help you capture that memory
so you can actually ENJOY the moment

Here's a sneak peek at what we can do
with some samples from a few couples
that attended Calhoun's prom last month.

3 Weddings and a Funeral

well... not really! But here's a couple
weddings & engagement and a TTD for ya! ;)

Small... intimate... spur of the moment...
we love these types of weddings! It proves
the point that bigger is not always better!
Brandon and Justeen are a perfect example of
this! Their private ceremony allowed them
time to get a ton of gorgeous shots that
many couples often don't get because of the
tight restraints they have on time during
the day. Don't get me wrong, we love the
big weddings too, but sometimes... it's the
little ones that leave the biggest impressions.

Here's a peek at Monty (Angie's brother)
& Misty's engagement session, along with
a pic from their recent wedding!!!

Courtney & Brent are great!
They definitely know the value of their
pictures! Being avid bow hunters, they
were definite on incorporating that somehow
in the pics. We had a beautiful location
to shoot at and every pic was perfect.

And finally Brittany, and her trash the
dress session. She has to know that she
is not only beautiful, but the strongest
woman I know! She has gone through more in
the last year, than many people go
through in their entire life... so she
was definitely overdue for some happiness
in her life! We are so psyched for her
and Logan and their new family unit!
We couldn't be happier for them.

Last Minute Seniors

For some reason, the majority of our Seniors
this year, swarmed in at the last second!
We were overwhelmed with sessions
in the weeks leading up to graduation!!!
Our Seniors come from everywhere!!
From the local Ripley & Ravenswood kids to
Parkerburg South and Warren to Southern
Racine and Calhoun! We love them all!! :)

Amanda is gorgeous and has no idea!!!
She was super shy to begin with, but
as the session moved along, really came out
of her shell! Congrats Amanda!!!

We love Kyle... and his Mom!
MaryAnn rocks! Kyle was super sweet
and was definitely doing this for his
Momma...but what good boy wouldn't?!
An awesome kid and a great baseball player!
Kyle is bound for great things!!

Kevin is our daredevil senior and
a huge liability!! We couldn't imagine being
his Mom... just kidding!! He rocked!
He climbed up into the rafters on the
bridge and wanted his pictures taken there!
Can you say... dangerous!!

Paul is a riot!! He is a joy to
be around and was so much fun to shoot!
His pictures put a smile on our
face every time we see them! He's
destined for good things... heck maybe
he'll even win a soap box derby one day! ;) lol

Lexy... the busiest Senior in
the ENTIRE world! This girl's schedule
is so packed, we don't know where
she has any time to sleep, let alone
get her senior pics taken! You name a
sport, this girl can play it and most
likely... way better than you! She's
AMAZING and we love her to death! We can't
wait till she has some free time to finish up
her session!!!

5 kids + 2 photographers + a ton of new clients


We have been soooo busy lately that we
haven't had two seconds to update this blog!

With all our last minute seniors and new
wedding clients, our days have been flooded
with shooting, editing and ordering!!

Not to mention our own family events!
A BIG Congrats to Jacob (Angie's nephew)
and Bre (our hubbies cousin) for their
recent graduations from high school!!

And another Big Congrats to newlyweds...
Ryan & Amy Finley! (another of our hubbies cousins)
Monty & Misty Arnold (Angie's brother)

It's craziness around here, but we wouldn't have
it any other way!

Look for lots and lots of new posts over
the next few days as I catch you up on
what A+ Photography has been up too!!

A Little Late!

Poor Austin! We forgot to blog him around his
birthday!! It seems like after the first baby,
every one that follows just seems to get left
out! But although we forgot to blog him,
you definitely can't ignore Austin!

He is the sweetest little guy! He is a non-stop
ball of energy and is basically a bull in a
China shop. He's completely adorable and has
the bluest eyes you will ever see! UMMMM wonder
where he got that!?!

We love you Austin!! Happy SUPER late 2nd Birthday!

Spring Break? What's that?!

We have been OVERWHELMED with business
the past couple weeks and we are LOVING it!
We have been so busy in fact, that I
haven't had much time at all to catch
everyone up with some post-peeks of
our recent clients! And although there
isn't a pic of this on the blog, we
also had a TON of kids show up for
our 1st Annual Easter Shoot!
Everyone did great!!! There were very
few meltdowns and everyone seemed to
have a GREAT time!!

Not only have we been busy with our clients,
we've also been busy attending photography
seminars, so that we can soak up new
knowledge that we can put to work in
your photos!

So now that spring is here, we only expect
to get busier!! YAY!

Wild Night!

Jodi brought daughters and nephew down
to attempt a group photo of the 3 of them!
The oldest was 3 so we knew we were
going to have our hands full! But we had no
idea how tough it was going to be!!! :)

They were adorable in their Easter outfits,
but NO ONE wanted their pics taken!
With a lot of coaxing, bribing and tickling
we managed to get through the session!
They ended up with a lot more pics than
we expected and we are super pleased with
the results!! Shooting a little one is tough, but
shooting 3 little ones is even harder! But with
kids as cute as these, it makes it just a little easier!

We hope Jodi is happy with these! They turned
out much better than either of us expected! :)


How beautiful is this baby?!
But there's no denying where she
gets it! Her Mommmy, Stacy is gorgeous!
Little Miss Sadie did not want to
smile for us, but with some coaxing,
we got some super cute grins out of her.
Her set of pictures are just too cute!

Stacy... bring Sadie back soon!
She's too adorable not to be photographed!

Enjoy her sneak peek! CUTE!

Expecting Alex

So... continuing with Jennifer.
She was great to work with and
we loved taking her around town
finding some great places to
photograph her happy belly!

Here's a few more to love!
I hope she loves them...
because we DEFINITELY do!! :)

Another Crazy Saturday!

Not only are we super busy this weekend
with our 1st Annual Easter Shoot, but
Saturday we were swamped with regular
appointments as well! Saturday
was packed with little ones along with
a family session and a maternity session!

Our day started off with the Shocks. They
drove all the way from Calhoun County! They
haven't had a family pic taken since Natasha,
the youngest, was 6! It was definitely overdue!
They were so sweet! These pics should make Mom
super happy!

Shortly after the Shocks, our wild day of chasing
little ones began! But surprisingly, every
appointment did great! It was a far cry from our
crazy Friday full of little ones who didn't
want to smile, let alone be in the picture at all!

We ended our busy streak with Jennifer's maternity
session. She is such a beautiful pregnant woman!
We were so happy she let us take our outside
and with the fact that she let us have total
control of the session. She ended up with
some amazing happy belly shots, that I just may
end up blogging more about later!!!

Enjoy a sneak peek into our hectic day!

Momma's Boys

Sierra FINALLY brought little Hayden
back for us to get some new shots of
her little guy. The problem was, Hayden
isn't a little guy anymore! He has gotten
sooooo big! And to top it off, Sierra
has a new edition to her family... Carter!
So not only has Hayden gotten bigger, but
he's become a BIG brother too!

We were so excited to see them again
and we hope she loves her pics!
Her boys are adorable!

Morris Family

Amanda brought her boys down on Sunday
to attempt to get some pictures! I think
she thought it was going to be difficult,
but they did great! Cooper had just woke up
from a nap, so he needed a little time
to adjust to us, but once he did, he was
fine! And Levi... he's just a ham!
For every smiling pic we got of him, we
got 3 or 4 silly ones!

They even managed to all squeeze in for
a few nice family shots! They were awesome!
We hope they love their pics and we
can't wait to see them again!!! :)


Beautiful baby girl!
We had so much fun trying to
get little Paityn to cooperate
in the many positions we put her
in! She is super tiny and has
gorgeous blue eyes! We just can't
get enough of her!

We appreciate how far her Mommy
had to drive, just to get her
pics taken by us! We're honored!

We hope Little Miss Paityn comes
back for many more photo shoots!
We love watching little ones grow!

A Crazy Saturday!!!

Last Saturday was swamped with appointments!
The day started off with little Khloie who is so sweet!
She just turned 1 and is the tiniest little thing!
She was a grinning maniac! We love her to death!
She's an awesome model! :)

Then we moved on to the Harrison Family who
have 2 adorable little boys! Hunter (the 2 year old)
even named our wooden horse for us! The horse's
official name is now Pete! So cute!

After the Harrisons, I shot over to Sara's baby
surprise baby shower! Her baby girl is almost here!
Can't wait to photograph her!

Then it was back to the studio for one more family!
This time... my cousin Chad, his wife Andrea, and their
cutie patootie, Addyson!
Addyson is full of grins and rolls! We just love her!

Enjoy a peek into our busy day!
