  • Welcome to my blog!

    Thank you so much for stopping by! Whether you stumbled on this site, or you've been coming back for some time now, I hope you know how much I appreciate your support.

    Here you will find collections of my latest work, learn more about photography, and discover what's going on inside my little word.

    Special thanks to all my clients who let me feature them - you let me do what I love!

Daughter

Full of love, full of joy… spunk and sass. Full of life, curiosity and energy… sweet and tender hearted. Lover of sugar, swinging, sunshine, and shoes… blankies and books. Collector of bows, balls and crayons… giver of high fives, “nosies” and snuggles. Currently a receiver of time outs for saying no, running away and hitting… quickly followed by kisses and hugs. Tiny in every physical way but “big” in every other way… filling our hearts to the full.

Emma Jane : 6 Months

These are our good friends Kris, Aubree & sweet Emma Jane! I was able to photograph this family for maternity session & newborn session… if you didn’t see them, click on the links and check them out!! These portraits are from Christmas and they surprised their families with new portraits, so I patiently waited to post them until after the holidays. Now it’s MARCH so I think we’re safe!!:)Mike and Kris are the youth pastors here in Barnwell and our families have gotten so close — and I couldn’t be more thankful that Mila and Emma are growing up together!

Brittany : Bridal Session

As I said in a few earlier blog posts… I’m going to be posting some older sessions from 2013 that never made it live on the blog. BUT, they are worth sharing and I’m so thankful for each my clients and I want to show them off! Brittany is no exception.  This gorgeous bridal session had to be posted… as late as it may be!! I hope you enjoy these portraits as much as I do!!

BHS & JDA : Prom 2014

Wow, it’s hard to believe that prom is just around the corner. I have been asked by small groups over the last few years to take some portraits before they head out for the night – and it couldn’t be more fun. Each student is beaming, full of excitement, and truly looks beautiful. If you are wanting some portraits taken this spring, check out the dates and locations below.

Please email me dattomastudios@gmail.com for more information and I will be sure to put you on my list!

JDA PROM: Friday night, March 28. Portraits begin at Barnwell State Park at 3pm.

BHS PROM: Friday night, April 11. Portraits begin at Sweetwater Country Club at 3pm.

Check out the pictures below from a few of my groups last year!

Spring Children’s Portraits

What an incredibly strange winter we’ve had!! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some consistent sunshine & warm weather! So, in order to celebrate that SPRING IS COMING, I thought I’d announce the dates for my annual Spring Children’s Portraits. If you haven’t signed up before and would like to see some of my work from last year : check it out HERE, HERE & HERE!

The sessions are only 20 minutes long per child, but I ASSURE you, that is plenty of time to get some great shots. I guarantee 20 – 30 final portraits per child, but I average many more than that even in this short time frame. You will receive released rights & an online gallery where you can easily order prints, although (as always) there is no obligation to do so.

 

What’s the investment? Only $55 per child!! (If you have 4 or more children, the price drops to $40 per child!). That adds up to be barely more than $1 per image + the entire 20 minute session!! This is my best price on individual portraits all year – so don’t miss out!!

Also, one FINAL BONUS included this year – forward a link to this blog post to friends & family (or like below to post on fb) and automatically receive a free 8×10 when you sign up for a time slot!

 

Sessions are being offered at the times and locations listed below. SIGN UP HERE!! (I will email you to assign a time slot, or you can email me to see if the time you need is still available: dattomastudios@gmail.com)
