I know right now we are still in for tons of winter weather for the next few weeks, but spring is on the way! It is one of my favorite times of the year.
Last year, I offered our first indoor Easter Mini and it was very popular, so this year I am offering it again. With 3 different set ups available in the month of March on select dates. I will have three days available at our studio and one day available at our favorite local consignment shop here in Martinsburg, WV, The Wee Cycle.
Here are a few of our images of our set ups that will be available. Thank you to all three models and moms that came out for me to work with for my promo ads, I appreciate it! You are all such a treat to work with!

One of the greatest compliments you can give is to refer your friends and family to Life Seen Photography for their portrait needs. I love to give back to all of my loyal and happy clients. So, Life Seen Photography’s referral program is my way of saying “Thank You” to you.
Here’s how it works:
For every new client that you refer who books and completes a full session you will receive $25 credit towards a future session or print products. Also, each new client referred by you will receive a $25 credit toward their current session.
It’s easy to build your credit and use it towards sessions, prints, and products that Life Seen offers.
Referrals are defined as NEW clients only.
New Client MUST indicate that you referred them at booking.
There is no limit on how many referral credits you can earn.
Referral Credits must be used within 1 year of their issue date.
Referral Credits are non-transferable and hold no cash value.
Referral Credits cannot be used toward Mini or Limited session events.
Every year, I select an organization within my community to work with by donating either my time, resources or both.
I have done sessions for military families with deployed solders, Easter events for community outreaches, there is no real criteria, however, I do prefer it to be a non-profit and within my local community. This year, I decided on one that was extremely close to home for me, because of events in my own childhood.
During my childhood from the ages of 5-7, I was in foster care. I don’t remember much of my time in my life because of my age, I guess. Unfortunately, I also don’t have any images of myself or of the families I was placed with. So that 2 year period is missing from my life. My goal was to help create memories and provide images for these children so years from now they know they were cared for and loved, and most of all not forgotten.
I reached out to the Children’s Home of WV in Martinsburg started the process of setting up sessions. Everyone I was in contact with there was awesome and seemed to genuinely happy to be doing their job. The day of the sessions I was able to see how they interacted with the children and you could really tell they loved and cared for all the children they come in contact with.
Here is a link to their Facebook more information.
I would like to say a special Thank you to the families that foster and adopt. You are in a class of your own. You give those children a chance to be a part of a family, and that makes all the difference in their lives.
If you are interested in fostering or adopting in the state of WV here is the link to more information.
Most of us all remember exactly where we were on 9-11-01. I was a senior in high school, in my US History class, there wasn’t supposed to be anything special about that day but that changed when we were attacked. That day changed the course of many people’s lives and unfortunately ended the lives of others way too soon. For me, it set in stone that I would enlist into the military after finishing high school and I actually did sign up for the Navy delayed entry just a few days later. I knew that I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself and make the world we live in a better place, and while in the service I met so many others that joined for the same reason. I lost shipmates along the way and saw friends injured for life, but they will tell you they still believe in what we were fighting for and most would answer the call again.
Prayers and love to all those who were impacted by this tragic event. We will always remember, we will never forget.
MOMS Club(R) of Martinsburg is hosting our Fall Mini Session this year. A portion of the funds raised will go toward local charities selected but the group.
MOMS Clubs is a wonderful organization for moms by moms. I joined last year when we moved to the Martinsburg area and it was easily one of the best decisions I made. My children have formed friendships with the other kiddos in the group and I have been able to connect with other moms that are on the same journey through motherhood as I am.
Here’s a link to the group if you would like more information.
On occasion, I have a session that I fall in love with. My most recent Mommy and Me session was one of those. I had worked with little Miss O. during a model call that was hosted by Life Seen in May, and she was a delight then and so adorable.
So when mom booked the next session in July, I knew I was in for a treat because not only do I get to shoot this little lady again, I now get to work with beautiful mommy and the oh so handsome little brother. Just look here at some of the beautiful images that were captured that day!

The month of January was very busy for Life Seen Photography. We saw a ton of cute newborns, rambunctious toddlers, growing families and everything in between.
We’re starting in a chapter for Life Seen Photography here in Martinsburg, West Virginia. With our studio were able to accommodate more newborns on location and schedule sessions even when the weather is yucky. This was a major goal of mine when we decided on our forever home location, after the hubs retired from the Army. While our studio is nice and cozy we are already looking for future locations to expand later on down the road.
Life Seen has a lot planned 2017! We have Easter and April Showers Mini’s coming up, along with a model sessions for editorial work. We are also looking at working with different organizations within the community to build a stronger Martinsburg that we can all love.
I look forward to meeting more members of the community, so far everyone we have met has been a delight and I have truly feel welcomed into the community.
Below is just a few of the faces as we get to capture during the the month of January 2017.
