The amazingly gorgeous "L" family!

I had the complete honor of being able to photograph an amazing family today. The L family was simply spectacular and I hope I am able to take some more pictures of them in the future! The models today consisted of a mom (a flippin gorgeous mom!) and her adorable 8 month old daughter and then all the cousins! I sure hope I was able to get some pictures to make everyone happy! We went to a local park and had a total blast. The boys ran around like crazy and had so much energy, I truly enjoyed my time with this wonderful family! Oh, and much appreciation goes out to the rest of the family (moms, dads, grandma, and grandpa) for helping to get and keep the attention of all the children so I could get a few with all of them looking at me!...well most of them anyhow. :)

~The L Family~

I am in love with the lighting at this location and these kids are gorgeous!! Such a cute group of cousins!

Mom and little J.

This girl! Honestly, I think I have found my new muse! She was amazing and I didnt get a bad picture of her all day! I hope one day that Ill be able to photograph her some more- shes gorgeous and quite the little camera ham too! (which I love) I didnt have to direct her hardly at all- she just struck a pose everytime I turned her way! :)

New Crafty Letters

Its been a while so I thought that today I would upload the present I made my mother in law for Christmas. I have made the observation that so far the word LOVE is the one that I decorate the most. I think however, that I may branch out and actually decorate the word DREAM and (shock!) keep it for myself. Although dreaming isn't my issue, its believing. I dream all the time... its the believing that I can do it that's key. I know I can do anything I put my mind to but sometimes it's still hard for me to believe that.
On a side note: today happens to be the birthday of one of my favorite photographers- Courtney Dellafiora. She is an amazingly talented photographer and a super awesome person ( I can say that since I have officially met her! yay!) and today she blogged an awesome idea. She made a list of 100 things to do by the time she is thirty and I think this may be an idea I'm going to steal from her. So be on the lookout for my list!

Honored and amazed

I have always loved photography and been intrigued by it. I revel in the power and emotion that a single shot can have. I am always inspired by photographers and the art they create and the moments they are able to capture.

For the longest time (years in fact) I have been arguing with myself; you see I've always wondered if I could be a photographer, and I've always convinced myself otherwise- that I would be horrible at it. Finally at the age of 27 I convinced myself to give it a shot, what's the worst that could happen? I'd fail, and if so then I'd never have to tell anyone what my secret dream was.

So I bought my first DSLR back in September of 2009 and asked a friend if she'd let me take pictures of her and her boyfriend. They said yes and since then something amazing has happened- people have asked me to take their pictures after seeing that very first shoot! I can't tell you how honored and amazed I am that people actually want to entrust me with their memories. Especially since I am SO new at all of this. I have so much to learn still. In fact, I am currently shooting in aperture -priority mode because I haven't mastered manual yet! For those of you out there reading this that are photographers and understand what that means then you know just how far I still have to go. The thing is, I'm willing to learn and put in the work. I can see that I have the potential to do great (eventually) in this field and even more than that is the way I feel when taking pictures. I can't explain it- it's just an amazing feeling... I get lost in the moment, and that is wonderful.

The reason that I am making this post is for two reasons.
One is to thank everyone. To thank those who have encouraged me thus far and who continue to do so. To thank the families that have contacted me and asked me to freeze their family in a moment; who have asked me to capture their children's natural beauty and innocence. To my friends who are willing to go out with me and allow me to practice on them- in good weather and not so good weather ;) To my family for their continued support.
Thank you all.

The second reason is to announce that due to the overwhelming response that I have recieved I have decided upon my pricing for photoshoots.

As of now the pricing is as follows:

Family, Senior, Children, & Engagements


Whats included:
2+ hour shoot, 2 outfits, 2 locations*.
CD of final edited images with photo release
approximately 75+ images
If you are interested in contacting me you can find me on Facebook: Tiffany Herndon

Again, I am so honored, blessed, and amazed by the response that I have received from everyone.


Thank you!

And because posts are always better with pictures:

**Weddings available upon request and only in extreme cases (LOL)

The "M" family

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking some pictures for the M family. They had recently had a new addition to the family and mom wanted some photos taken. I had an absolute blast hanging out with the family for a few hours and I am very proud of how these turned out. After I had taken pictures of the whole family and the two oldest children- mom asked if I would take some of little H. :) This was my first time taking pictures of a newborn and i must admit I was nervous! However, I am expecially thrilled with how they turned out!

So without further ado, I give you the M family:

The M Family
The two oldest children were such fun all morning long!
Little H!

This is my favorite shot from the whole day! The family are HUGE Mississippi State fans and I am ecstatic with this shot.

Check out the mohawk!

This is another shot I am especially pleased with.

Gorgeous S!

The whole family! :)

Mom and Dad.

B is just a ball of fire and I enjoyed chasing him around all day! We had so much fun.

B and S are so excited to be a big brother and a big sister!

Thank you so much M family! I am truly honored that you asked me to take pictures of your gorgeous family. :)
