ballerina girl.

Pink tights and a black leotard ~ classsic. The black and white tile floors just sent me over the edge. St. Peter's Taproots house was the perfect venue for these shots.

Sweet girl Abbie is taking her first ballet class and I was lucky enough to capture her excitement as she headed off to class. Maybe one day I'll have a little ballerina of my own. A girl can dream, right? Until then I am satisfied to capture little girl moments like these...

you're invited...

Host your very own "Portrait Party" with Linley Paske Photography. It is so easy and your guests will love it.

How does it work, you ask?? Pick a date + invite 5-10 friends = free pictures. Really, that's it!

Each guest will get a free 15 minute mini-session with yours truly. Got a great yard? We can shoot outdoors. Not a green thumb? I will bring a backdrop of your choice for an indoor shoot or we can creatively utilize your home interior. There is no sitting fee for any of your guests, and as the hostess you will get a package of FREE prints. See, I told ya it was easy!!

After the party, all images will be uploaded to an online gallery where your guests can order and have their prints delivered directly to their door. Plus, as a hostess you'll get additional print credits based on the orders from your party. It's a win-win for everyone!!

With the holidays approaching, this is a great way to get those Christmas card pictures taken care of, while visiting with your friends at the same time. A two-for-one deal. Yay!

Hurry and book yours now, the calendar is filling up fast!!

mommy + me

So here's a sneak peek from Baby Kate's one year photo shoot.

I was invited to shoot her 1st Birthday Party and I was beyond thrilled when I saw her "birthday suit". Since I am the mother of two boys, I relish any chance I get with a tutu.

I had to get a few shots of Baby Kate and Mommy ~ both beautiful girls!!

More to come...

my palmer

Oh Palmer, what can I say about my Palmer??

He is inquisitive and tender. Such a sweet spirit for a little boy of two years old. He wraps his arms around my neck every morning when he wakes up as if he hasn't seen me in ages. He is calling out for me as I type this at midnight ~ he talks in his sleep like his Daddy.

These pictures were taken on his 2nd birthday at Venice beach. Unlike Peyton, who hates to get dirty, Palmer delights in the feeling of sand between his toes (and in his hair, his belly button and numerous other crevices).

My squishy Palmer, don't ever grow up...

i love him.

Have I ever mentioned that I won the husband lottery??

Seriously, I don't think that I have done anything in my life to deserve such an incredible man. Not only is he an amazing husband, but he is the best father to our boys. He is loving yet firm, but mostly he is a big kid at heart. I love him for that.

He is going under the knife tomorrow and I am reminded just how much he means to me. I couldn't do any of this without his encouragement and support. My boys and I are blessed to have him every day. I love him ~ just sayin'.

*extra, extra*

...read all about it!!

This past weekend I participated in a Trunk Show for 'The Preppy Little Dress'. The Trunk Show was a promotion for Clothes for a Cause. For every dress that is bought, a dress is sent to a deserving little girl in Uganda, Africa. I was so thrilled to be a part of the event ~ and it was a great success!!

As you can see we were lucky enough to have a precious live mannequin on hand...

These clothes really are for a cause, the dresses are donated in the name of the little girl who will be wearing hers here in the states. What I wouldn't give to take some pictures in Uganda when the dresses arrive. Again, I feel so blessed to be a part of this special charity.

Here's a shot of my new display. YAY! I am so excited to finally have a display to use for Bridal Shows and events. My business cards match the displays, some are black and white and some are color. I can never decide which style I like best so I did both! :-)

I think the display does a good job of expressing my style and personality ~ plenty of pink!

My booth in action at the Tallahassee Bride show this past Sunday...

I had an amazing time at the Bridal Show meeting with prospective brides and chatting with other vendors. Wedding season here we come!!

ole miss.

Nothing says southern gentleman like a seersucker suit. Can you tell from the tie selection that these two are UM fans?? Blake and Amber made their way down from Mississippi to renew their vows in Orange Beach, AL. They were blessed with the most amazing sunset ceremony on the white sandy shores of the beach where they first met. Along for the ride was their precious baby boy Blake Adam.

I was in heaven with the beautiful beach and the beautiful children. I love the southern attire that you see on babies and little ones in the south. I swear, people from Alabama know how to do children.

Blake and Amber were so obviously in love it was a pleasure to photograph, but I didn't get many shots where they weren't kissing!

i heart baby boys

Little boys... can't get enough of them. I had the pleasure of doing a mini-session with this cutie. Carson is the youngest in the family and the only boy ~ his big sisters think they have a real live baby doll!

His Mom decorated the nursery in a circus theme and painted the cutest stripes on the wall. Actually, her close friends painted the nursery (myself included) during her "painting shower". What a cute idea for a baby shower 'huh?? Of course we had to get a few shots of the nursery - love it!!

Mabry was doing her best kitty-cat impression at Peyton's 4th birthday and I had to get some pictures. She was so striking with those piercing blue eyes and the brightly colored paint. Thanks to Klown Kapers for the amazing face paint artistry, be sure to call them for your next big event!!

These two melt my heart. Actually, they are my heart.

I just ordered this image in a gallery wrap and I literally wanted to hug it when it came in. This picture is so representative of my boys relationship. Peyton will put up with his little brother's affection, while Palmer loves his brother to pieces.

My prayer is that they will continue to love each other as they grow up and stay best of friends into adulthood. Only time will tell...

*blue eyes*

Personally, I cannot resist a man with blue eyes. This little man will surely melt the ladies one day with his baby blues. And his name says it all... Beau.

It is amazing to me that Beau is a year old ~ it was just yesterday that I was doing maternity pictures with Karah and Ben. We had a great *early* morning together at Maclay Gardens getting these great shots... enjoy.

{preppy little dress}

I love when two things I adore come together ~ cute clothes and cute children!

Anyone who knows me knows that preppy is my middle name, so I was more than excited when I was given the opportunity to photograph sweet Abbie for the new Preppy Little Dress ad campaign.

The Preppy Little Dress is a new line of the most precious pillow case dresses designed by a local Tallahassee boutique owner. PLD is hosting a "sip & see" on September 19th at St. Peter's Northside Education Center, Taproots. Be sure to stop by, sip and shop as you browse the new collection - including holiday designs!!

Speaking of holidays... I am getting geared up for the busy holiday portrait season. I am so excited about the new holiday cards I will be offering - more on those to come!! Also, look for more information to come on outdoor Halloween sittings - oooh, scary! ~LP
