New Blog!

Blogger has served me well for quite some time now, but I've decided to move up to a new Wordpress blog. My wonderful husband has worked hard to help me customize the blog, and I am excited to announce that future blog posts will be found at:

In addition to allowing me to post larger images, the new blog has the option of using the "sliding door" menu to search posts easily by topic, such as newborns, children, modeling, etc. It also have convenient links to Veralana's Facebook page and website. If you have subscribed to this blog, I will be contacting you in the next few days about how to move your subscription to the new blog. Or if you prefer to subscribe to the RSS feed, the option is already available on the menu of the new blog.

Thanks again to my loyal readers, and hope to see you over at the new blog!

Smiles for Mommy

This morning we did a session celebrating the adoption of this sweet little girl. She is nearly 2 years old and talking up a storm! I was excited to get outside for my first outdoor session of the year, and she was such a sweet subject.

If you have also recently adopted a child and would like more information about the Celebrating Adoption program feel free to contact me, or check out the national site:

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Just a little holiday fun outside after the rain cleared up. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Summer Fashion

We have been having nice weather on and off, so we managed to do some outdoor modeling for thats*so*addie. This set is currently listed on eBay. I just love the colors.

Daddy's Serenade

I had the pleasure of working with this family earlier this year for maternity portraits, and now again after the birth of their precious baby girl. We changed things up a little from my normal black background and tried out my new Damask wall and yummy knit hats.

Little Cinderella

We have been waiting for the weather to warm up so we could head outside and do some photos of this gorgeous cotton princess dress by Ollie Girl. I love her calico princesses, and this is one of her special line of "pixie dust" dresses.

Snowy Macros

Today's snow inspired me to pull out my macro lens (which allows me to take extreme closeups/magnified images). Snow seems to make anything, even a dead leaf, look fresh and clean.
