{Children Photography | Marion | Iowa | Summer 2013}

Summer 2013 is finally here....well I guess it has
been for a few weeks however, this is my first
 summer post. Sorry...sometimes I focus on finishing
my clients work....and just
kind-of forget about sharing on my blog.
Yeah...I know...there are so many
disappointed viewers out there!!
Well....not too sure about that, but here's
a recent favorite shot of mine  
of a "little daydreamer"

It's already January 2013 and I still haven't finished
 posting images from
December's a few that I have decided
I still need to include from 2012
This brother and sister duo have been loyal clients of mine
for several years now, so of course
I had to include a few of their
fantastic images that we were able
to capture before the snow and freezing
temps hit.
And I thought it was cold on this'd love
to go back to
 the weather we had that day vs. what we
are dealing with this week!

With the class of 2013 shooting schedule
coming to a close, I will now have
a bit more time (hopefully) to stay 
slightly more current with my
blog updates...oh
yeah... and I still need to update
my website with all
the fantastic clients I have worked
with this past summer/fall.
Anyway.....I wanted to make
sure I took the time to add
a few shots from this past shoot with a little
man that I have taking pictures of
since he was a week old.
Actually, you can view one of his first images
that I ever took of him at the header
of this page....the newbie with
the white blanket.
So now here he is at the exploratory
age of 11/2.
We were trying for an outdoor shoot this day...
however....the weather would not cooperate,
but we made due by moving the shoot
 inside his home.

his loyal companion Brinx, decided to join the shoot

{Custom Senior Photography | Melody Smith | Marion, Iowa}

The Class of 2013 has discovered Image Nouveau and I have been
going strong working with tons of fantastic seniors from the Eastern Iowa area!
 I have had a few clients travel a distance to work with me,
but this one has definitely traveled the farthest!!
(OK....maybe she didn't travel all the way from Florida....just to have me
 take her Senior pictures.....maybe she came to visit her childhood BFF)
But...while she was here we did get a chance for her Senior photo shoot!
Having known this gorgeous girl since she was in grade school,
it was a bittersweet moment working with her (& my son) now
as they are getting ready to move forward in life and
venture off to college and then ruling the WORLD!

in the immortal words of CHER "If I could turn back time"
Wishing all the Best to the Class of 2013
And especially these two kiddos
 can two friends take a picture together
without a "duck face" being involved?
It's a classic for the class of 2013

The summertime weather has been a welcome addition to our outdoor photo shoots,
 it's so nice to be on a shoot till 8:00pm and not having to wear a jacket or have chattering teeth!
 I had a wonderful time working with these darling sisters,
 we had such a good time in between shots trying to catch frogs in a the nearby creek,
 unfortunately the frogs were willing to jump out into water farther than we wanted to. So...we had to leave the frogs alone and continue with our mission.

Vintage Bikes are the BEST!

{Custom Photography by Image Nouveau | Iowa}

If you know anything about me, you probably know that I love vintage finds. I might not always know what I’ll be using these pieces for…but if I see something that catches my eye…I’ll try to snag it for a good price. But then what happens to these fun treasures??? They usually sit around either in the house/attic or garage…until the right opportunity, when it’s time for them to make an appearance.

So….when planning a shoot with a teenage girl…that lives in the country…and is a ballet dancer…what better place to bring out my antique vanity (that’s been sadly hibernating in my garage for years) and lets set it in the middle of the cow/horse pasture that contains unlimited piles of poo, that my “city” SUV had to drive through in order to transport the vanity to just the right spot.

Even though it was a bit of a messy ordeal and my tires/boots and assistants shoes where covered in a combo of mud and cow pies…I think it was well worth it and I loved hanging out on the farm with this talented girl and her helpful mother, so please view the images below and see what you think!

**Special thanks to my hubby for scraping/scrubbing the farm off my auto

And yes......there's always time for a text break

This cow kept eyeballin me....I don't think she liked me much

Working with repeat clients that trust me and my creativity, is always an absolute delight and they are bound to end up with something out of the ordinary. It's also so cute when I show up to the shoot with out my favorite assistant and they ask where's Evan???

 This shoot was primarily for 2yr pictures, however I managed to click a few of big brother and the family.I know the balloons were a hit with the boys...hopefully a few of them lasted till Tyler's birthday :)
The Happy Birthday Boy :)

I recently spent a fun and creative day working on a photo shoot for some upcoming ads and announcements, with Barb from Simply Iowa aka Cross Creek Antiques

The initial shoot was intended to be outside, however...the weather was extremely cold and the wind
was gusting. So, we then spent some time indoors creating some more wonderment.

If you have never stopped by this unique shoppe
I highly recommend that you do.
Who knows what you'll find
once you step in the
"rabbit hole"

{Engagement Photography-Image Nouveau-Iowa}

Yes....I know, I have been very slow at posting recent images.
 This Winter has been surprisingly busier than I had expected and I have several recent shoots that I need to post.
I'll get back into the posting starting off showing you some recent
shots from an engagement shoot.
This snow loving couple hoped for some snowy backdrops, but we had the
cold...but not much of the snow.

Fortunately, they were still thrilled with the final images!

Congratulations to you two!

{High School Senior Photography-Marion Iowa}

I am back........I know it's been some time since I have updated my blog, it seems the only advantage to this freezing cold weather is that it allows time to update on on the fantastic photo shoots that I have had in the last few months!
So, to get back into the frequent updates I'll start off with this fun spirited high school senior (class of 2012) wow, I just thought back to the warm fall weather we had during this shoot, if only it was still like this outside!
