That’s right — I’m offering FREE photo shoots! These can be family, senior, engagement, fashion, business, baby, pet, maternity or any other kind of picture you can imagine (well, almost anyway)! That’s a $200 value for absolutely nothing but the pure joy of spending some time with yours truly!
I have some pretty fun shoot sites in mind, but if there is a place near and dear to your heart, you are more than welcome to let me know. Once I’m done with the pictures, I’ll send them off to be edited and then upload them to my proofing section where you can order however many pictures you would like!* You can even give friends and family members the password to your online proofing site so they can order prints, too. Couldn’t be simpler! If interested, leave me a comment and I’ll get in contact with you so we can set up the shoot.
I did a photoshoot this weekend for my cousin Rebecca and had an absolute blast. These were “just because” pictures since her mom never likes the quality of school pictures. Rebecca and I had a great time laughing, and we even had our own Talladega Nights moments. We found ourselves saying several times “I don’t know what to do with my hands” and then bursting into laughter. Rebecca will be a senior this year, and I look forward to doing her senior pictures. She’s a natural! (These images are straight out of the camera…no editing whatsoever)
*NOTE: I am no longer offering free photo shoots. However, you can check out my web site www.nicoleneffphotography.com for my current portrait session price.

I have some big and exciting news to share with you all veeeeeeeery soon. There are some details to be worked out before I share, but I’m expecting to deliver the news in the next couple of weeks. So check back often…until then, here’s a clue!
Could it really be so obvious? Surely not, right? Bring on the guesses, except for those of you who are in on the secret!

My camera, that is! And it is a beauty, but a heavy one at that. I truly, truly love it so far, what little I’ve gotten to use it. And I love the shallow depth of field that my 50 mm lens gives me, too. I waited with much anticipation yesterday to get the call that I had a package. I never got the call, but when I went to get the mail for work, I saw a box with a big B & H on it, signaling my package from B&H Photo and Video had arrived! I swear I probably had the biggest grin on my face. I was so busy yesterday, though, that I didn’t get to even get it out of the package until the second half of the day. I took it to class and showed it off, though…it was like I was in kindergarten all over again and was having show and tell.
I’m planning on going to take pictures of my new niece this weekend (surprise, Adam and Kyla!) so they can have some (hopefully) professional(ish) pictures of their baby girl to cherish forever. I also have some friends who have expressed an interest in having their pictures taken, as well, so hopefully I’ll get a lot of practice here in the next month. And then I’ll know my camera backward and forward for when I go to Hawaii…aloha, ya’ll!

Yesterday, I got a call at 6:45 a.m. letting me know that Kyla (Tyler’s sister) was in the hospital and that there was a baby on the way! I was so excited, but totally bummed that I had to go to work. Tyler and I decided we would work half a day and head up to Danville, but we were too late. It was a quick birth, with little Elizabeth Cay Payne being born at 2:03 p.m. (Indy time). She weighed in at 5 pounds, 7 ounces, and was 18 inches long. Let me tell you, she is a beauty! (There may be some distortion in these photos since I had to resize them after I had placed them on the page. Sorry!)
Tyler wasn’t so sure about holding her (he’ll get used to it and even learn to love it), but I couldn’t get enough of her. I can’t wait to spoil her rotten!
We spent the night with my parents last night (which is only an hour or so away) after visiting with Kyla, Adam, Elizabeth, Lana, Kerry and Myra. It was good to see my parents even though it was a short visit. We had breakfast today with my grandma and aunt (whom I never get to see often enough) before we headed back to visit again and pick up Kerry so we could head back home.
Elizabeth was still very sleepy today, but we unswaddled her so we could get a better look at her. She is a tiny girl, but, man, those feet!
I can’t wait to see her again. I’m already loving this aunt thing! I have a ton more photos on my computer, thanks to a borrowed camera. I can’t wait to get my own so I can make sure the happy parents have lots of great pictures of their little girl as she grows up!
