{Las Vegas Child Photographer | LJHolloway Photography} Little Mermaid

Wow, I haven’t put up a blog post since my 2014 year end favorites – I’ve been slacking and have some serious catching up to do!

We took a drive the other day to Prescott to check out the antique shops and do some landscape photos of Watson Lake.  I am currently on a landscape photography kick and will share some of my favorites in another post on another day. :)  It is so relaxing and stress relieving!

We passed by another lake on this drive and it looked incredibly interesting – the water levels were very high from the rain and snow we got this winter, and there were trees growing out of the water.  It was a beautiful 80 degree day so we decided to walk down and check it out (as a photographer, I had my ‘potential photo shoot location’ goggles on.  ;)  We had the 2 youngest girls with us and they wanted to go in the water.  We let them go in in their underwear so that their clothes would stay dry as we were now over 2 hours from home and not ready to drive back yet.  I took a short series of photos of my 5 year old in the water and am absolutely in love with them.  I have decided to remove the images from my Facebook page and instead share them on my own ‘turf’ – my blog.

I am proud of my work and absolutely stand behind it.  As always, I share images that I create that speak to me and that I love.  I adore these pictures of my sweet girl – they speak of calm, peace, oneness with nature, and have a very ethereal quality about them that speaks to my soul.  I welcome respectful commentary, but please be aware that all comments are moderated prior to appearing on my blog.  Have a beautiful day!  Don’t let ANYONE tell you what you can and cannot create, or snuff out your artistic spirit!

{Las Vegas Child Photographer} My 2014 Top 25

Wow, I blinked and another year has passed.  What an amazing year it has been!  My oldest is now a senior in high school and will be off on his own in just a few short months.  The kids are all growing and changing so fast – I wish I could slow time down.  Gabriel is no longer a baby, but a busy and happy little toddler.  Everyone has grown so much this year!  We are currently in the process of purchasing the home we’ve lived in and loved up here in the mountains for the past 3 years.  We cannot wait to be homeowners again!  I made the very difficult decision about halfway through 2014 to take an indefinite break from client work in an effort to focus more on my own family.  I have no regrets – it’s been a wonderful year!  I am so excited to see what 2015 brings. :)

Normally, I put together collages sharing many favorites from the year, but this time, I decided to do things a little differently and choose my personal top 25 images of 2014 to share with you.  These are favorites for varying reasons – many are of my own children and some are not.  I love each and every one of them.  It is always so fun to go back through a year’s worth of work and see the growth and progress from previous years.  Speaking of which, you can check out my 2013 year in review HERE.  These are in no particular order – well, that’s not entirely true.  Image #1 is most definitely my top favorite for the year, but the rest are in random order.  Happy New Year everyone, and may you all have a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2015!  Bring it on!

{Las Vegas Child Photographer | LJHolloway Photography} Sophie

Ever since my workshop this past spring in Nashville, Tennessee, I have been wanting to get together with Miss Sophie to work with her again.  I finally got my chance recently!  She was in Las Vegas with her mother doing some commercial work and by a miracle, we were able to make our schedules meet up for one day of shooting.  Sophie has been photographed by so many amazingly talented photographers, and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work with her a 2nd time.  I love that we were able to shoot in the stunning red rocks and desert scenery we have in our neck of the woods – something a little different for her.  Until next time… ;)

PS Stay tuned to my blog!  I will post my favorite images from 2014 TOMORROW!  You don’t want to miss it!
