Ikea Lifestyle Photoshoot - West Chester, Ohio

This past week I had an opportunity to do something I have never done before: partake in a lifestyle photo shoot at Ikea (in West Chester, Ohio). It was also with people I had never met before either. I recently joined a Cincinnati Photographers’ group on FB. Random people, I’ve never met, post their most up-to-date work, we discuss gear, how-to’s, etc. An admin posted a group shoot event, free, to anyone in the group, and I decided to join! Why not? …..and I am sooo happy I did! It was a smaller group, 5 of us (11 confirmed “going” on the event). We didn’t really have any “models”, just each other, and a few ladies brought their kids. These ladies were REAL and NICE and INSPIRING. I wasn’t sure how my images would turn out, the light is harsh and different. But overall, I’m very pleased. Some of these images I absolutely LOVE.

So, thank you, Sara - host/organizer of this little outing. I appreciate you - and I look forward to future events where I’m able to let my creativity flow <3

And, if anyone would be interested in having a professional shoot at Ikea, please, let me know! We can definitely set something up!

I've been Featured on ShootProof!

A few months ago a few people from Shoot Proof (they advertise themselves as: Professional sales tools and stunning client galleries for photographers for those that have never heard of them), they had Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS) in their message and I know that Shoot Proof sponsors all of the galleries I upload for each session I volunteer.  Turns out they wanted to ask me a series of questions to potentially be featured in a blog post.  I said sure, and answered their questions.  So much time has gone by, I have forgotten about it... until today, when they emailed me the links.  Turns out it's a three part series and I'm featured in part 2.  

You guys, it's so well composed and written - I love it so much.  I realize it's not super personal like the other two parts are, but that's just kind of who I am as a person.  Most of the time, I do my best to stay objective - and because of this I'm pretty laid back and non-judgmental.heh  I hope the reader gets an insight as to what it's like for me when I'm on a NILMDTS photo session.  There's some tangible simple things I have to constantly remind myself to do and it helps so much.  You can read more about it here   <3

More than all of this though - being drawn to something is such a strong thing.  If you find these stories have touched you and you're feeling moved to do something about it - perhaps channel those energies.  If you're willing and able to volunteer your services it would be greatly appreciated.  You don't even have to be a photographer!  I know, here in Cincinnati, we're looking for a dispatcher at the moment.  When nurses call in to the 800 number, this person is responsible for fielding the call and gathering some information then posting to the group - asking if someone is available.  All I'm saying is: we'd love to have you on our team.  ...and if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to sit down and talk - I'm here, and I'd love to have coffee some time.

Emilia & Family Newborn Photography

You guys! When I photographed Claudia & Matthew back in June, CLAUDIA WAS PREGNANT! 

I didn't know it at the time, and, of course, became overwhelmingly excited for them.

Emilia came earth side 1/26/2018 at 3:59 am, 7lbs 2oz and 20 inches of her. 

This is my favorite session to date - it's not what I've been doing when it comes to Three Little Photo sessions, but it feels more real and it's something I plan to explore more. 
I hope you enjoy <3

My Story Posted To NILMDTS's Newsletter

I wasn't expecting this, at all.  They asked me to send them something back in October, and I put something together real quick.  I didn't hear anything back, so I thought it was a 'no go'.  A few weeks ago Melisa from NILMDTS asked me to confirm a few things and for my permission - and here it is! 

 Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep made this meme

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep made this meme

I'm a little nervous about it being posted, a lot of people aren't familiar with my story - more importantly though, with my friends' story.  It's interesting the things we choose to keep private sometimes.  

Anyway, this past weekend I helped host a booth at the ProPhoto Expo in NKY.  I enjoyed talking to people about the volunteer work we do - and the more I spoke to others, the more I get the feelings of how important it truly is.  If anyone actually reading this and wondering about the company or what I do and how I do it, please let me know.  email me, call me, private message me - whatever's easiest for you... I'm here.

My Daily Album 2018

2018 means starting a journey for myself. I've joined a private Facebook group that provides daily direction/topics/challenges and we do with it what we please. -- photography driven, of course --  So far (day 6), the images have been inspiring, and I'm learning llittle lessons about MYSELF.  I've posted quite a few images on my personal IG, and I invite you to follow me as I find myself artistically this year: @childmuddle ...I do not know what this journey means for Three Little Photo, as of yet, so I'm not going to post "journey images" on this business feed.  Thank you!! I truly appreciate everyone's support!

A little over 6 months ago I photographed Brielle as a newborn.  I can't believe how big she has gotten!   The whole family met me at Glenwood Gardens last weekend and I don't think they could be more precious.  Here are a few of my favorites for our session.

Why I'm an affiliated photographer with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Because my children are healthy.
Because sometimes I think it’s not fair.
Because I understand the importance of remembering
And acknowledging those feelings are there.
I can’t always help with words or cards,
But I can help with my gift of art
I can help with my eye for photography
So, I do. 

The mission of Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS) is to provide remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with a free gift of professional portraiture.

NOTE: This hits home and tough for me to share...the paragraphs below, my experiences, they happened three years ago, so I've had time to process things, a lot.  I'm here for my best friend still, and support her daily the best I can.  This isn't an easy topic to talk about, but I think it's important.  

My best friend and I were pregnant at the same time, due in October.  Only she gave birth at the hospital in July, and didn’t leave until April the next year when he passed away at 9 months old.  Meanwhile, another friend of our family was due in September and had her daughter, stillborn, in May.  Their grievance, their timeline of survival, I was a bystander through it all.  I was left in a very awkward position because my baby was healthy. 

This past spring I received a random email from a member of my camera club saying “Cheryl Haggard, the founder of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, will be in Cincinnati on Monday”.  I had never heard of her or the company, and was strongly compelled to do some research.  So I did, and went to the in-person meeting a few days later.  I picked up some literature and information, applied to be a volunteer photographer, and here I am.  

After going to a handful of sessions, I’m happy I decided to walk this path with the other volunteers.  It’s sometimes hard to stop my routine, especially with two small kids, and decide to take a session, but I decide to have a few hours of stillness in my body and mind and to be present with the baby and family while I’m there.  I think it’s important they know I’m honored to be a part of their child’s life, I’m grateful to have met them and photograph them.  I will remember their child, and I was impacted by them.  <3
