{Las Vegas Child Photographer} My Little Models

I was recently approached by an amazing children’s boutique clothing brand that I absolutely LOVE and asked if I’d like to photograph a few of their upcoming items in exchange for the clothing.  Um, YES please!  These outfits are notoriously difficult to cart (they sell out in half a nano-second), and the only other option to obtaining these pieces is to pay 2 or 3 times the retail cost in the crazy aftermarket – sometimes even more.  I was more than happy to take them up on this offer!  My 4 youngest children modeled the first set of adorable outfits and despite the cold weather that day, they had a blast!  We even included Richard, our pet bunny.  If you guys haven’t checked out Well Dressed Wolf, be sure to look them up!  They have some of the cutest clothes for kids that I have ever seen!  This particular set included coordinating peach and chambray girls’ dresses as well as little boys’ outfits, so even my 2 little boys got to take part. :)  Gabriel in particular was more than excited about this opportunity!

Stay tuned to my blog for more upcoming sneak peeks of some super adorable outfits!  I cannot wait to share with you! 2 cute little boys wearing the chambray and peach Well Dressed Wolf outfits pose on stairs with mint green peeling paint with their pet bunny.

{Las Vegas Family Photographer | LJHolloway Photography} My 2015

Wow, I blinked and another year has come to a close.  2015 has been full of ups and downs – so much has happened both personally and professionally.  As a Las Vegas family photographer, I have been so blessed to capture the memories of my amazing clients, as well as those of my own family.  My oldest turned 18, graduated, and moved to Henderson – I am officially the mother to an adult child – yikes!  He is currently working and trying to figure out what he’d like to do with his life.  Calista got her driver’s license and is a junior in high school.  Damien started high school this year also.  I’m homeschooling all of my middle school aged and younger children.  The kids were busy with soccer all summer and fall.  We took two AMAZING road trips to Montana and Washington this summer – we visited my mom and dad, hiked, camped, fished, ate s’mores, stargazed, played in the Pacific ocean, and had many amazing adventures and created beautiful family memories.  We’ve decided we’d like to move to Montana sometime in the next few years – it’s stunningly beautiful and offers the secluded, quiet lifestyle in the wilderness we all crave.  We added a new family member to our brood – our Siberian kitty named Luna – she is like one of the kids and is so, so sweet!  On a sad note, I lost 2 early pregnancies this year – one baby due in December (my due date passed just 2 weeks ago) and another due on Leap Year.  I am happy to announce that I am again expecting a baby, this time a little girl due this spring.  I am 21 weeks now and things are going well – I am so thankful!  Pregnancy definitely gets tougher as you get older and this will be our last, so I’m trying to enjoy every minute of it (the heartburn, not so much).  No name for the little princess yet but we have several strong contenders. :)  My grandparents both celebrated their 90th birthdays this summer – I am so lucky to still have them!  My mom and dad spent Christmas with us – it was a wonderful time and has been an overwhelmingly positive year despite some sad and challenging times.

Photography-wise, I’ve made some big changes to my photography business.  I came back from a year long break from taking clients and am slowly integrating client work back into my schedule.  I missed it so much!  It’s been a wonderful year to be a Las Vegas family photographer and I am greatly looking forward to what 2016 brings, both personally and professionally.  Thank you to all of my family, friends, and clients who have supported me this year and throughout my journey, I am so appreciative.

I’d like to share with you a collection of some of my favorite images from 2015.  This is a random mixture of client work, creative shoots, and personal/family images.  Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and check them out.  I enjoyed looking back on a year’s worth of work and putting this together to share with you.  If you’d like, you can check out my 2014 favorites HERE, and my 2013 favorites HERE.  :)  Happy New Year!  May your 2016 be full of abundant health, happiness, and prosperity!

{Las Vegas Child Photographer | Kingman AZ Photographer} Happy Summer

We have had such a wonderful summer, full of travels, adventures, and time spent with family and friends.  I have been meaning to put up a blog post to share some of my favorite images from this summer, and finally have a few minutes to sit down and put it together.  I still have SO many more of these images to go through and edit, but here are a few highlights.  Thank you for looking!  Please also be sure to check out more of my work with children in my Las Vegas Child Photographer gallery! cute baby boy wearing white sits outside in the forest for a portrait taken on mt. charleston near las vegas

These images were taken during a get together with my friend Suzy Mead (Portraits by Suzy), and her adorable little girl, Mia.  I just love these two together.  Are wedding bells in their future?  You never know!  :) 2 cute children take photos of each other in the forest on mt. charleston near las vegas during a photo session cute preschooler boy and girl dance together during a photo session outdoors in the forest near las vegas nevada cute preschooler boy and girl dance together during a photo session outdoors in the forest near las vegas nevada

This was taken during another get together with my friend Suzy!  We decided to have some blue hour fun with my oldest daughter, Calista and some sparklers. :) teen girl holds a sparkler on the 4th of july in kingman az

On our trip to Montana, we stopped and paid a visit to the lavender fields in Mona, Utah.  They were so beautiful and smelled AMAZING!  I think Octavia loved the smell too! cute little girl with long hair and a yellow dress smells the lavender flowers she picked in a lavender field cute little girl with long hair and a yellow dress picks lavender in a field outdoors for a photo session

This photo here is probably my new favorite of my sweet little Elliott.  He LOVES music so this image is very much him.  The mosquitoes were a little bit annoying (okay, who am I kidding – they were atrocious) but this picture made the bites worth it.  At least I’d like to think so.  Gosh, I love Montana.  I can’t wait to make this state our home. cute little boy with long curly hair plays a mandolin outdoors in a field of daisies during a photo session cute little boy with long curly hair plays a mandolin outdoors in a field of daisies during a photo session moody black and white portrait of a little girl taken outdoors near las vegas nevada Little boy with long hair standing in green ferns and yellow flowers.

We also visited the Ho’h Rainforest in Washington.  I still have many more of these to work on, but just look at this cute little fairy we came upon sleeping on a log!  After having lived in the deserts of Arizona for 17 years, I didn’t know what to do with all of this green, but I sure did love it!  Washington is my home state, by the way.  My mom and dad still live there and we visit as often as we’re able to. :) little fairy dressed in a red gown takes a nap on a moss covered log in the rain forest in washington state

My beautiful girl – her eyes are hypnotizing!  The catchlights made by the rain forest canopy were so interesting! closeup portrait of a pretty little girl with green eyes laying in a clover patch wearing a red dress outdoors in the Ho Little fairy dressed in a red dresses watches the setting golden sun in the Olympic rain forest.

And who can visit Washington state without a trip to the ocean?  This is Ruby Beach and one of the highlights of our trip.  The kids had SO much fun here!  Gabriel went face first into the water about 2 minutes after we arrived, so he got to run around in his birthday suit the rest of the day.  I don’t think he minded too much!  Oh to have an ocean closer by.  There is something so soothing, calming, and healing about the beach. 6 little kids run and play at Ruby Beach in washington state

And last but not least, please meet the newest member of our family, Luna (Calista calls her Dennis lol).  This is our new Siberian kitty that we just brought home this month.  Isn’t she beautiful?  She’s fit right in to our big, crazy family. back lit portrait of a beautiful siberian cat with golden eyes taken outdoors in a field near las vegas nv A little girl holds her calico Siberian cat for a portrait outside in a back lit field near Las Vegas.
