A few years ago I met someone online... no, not from a dating service... from a message board for mommies!  Caryn would post pictures that she was taking and I fell in love - from her style and creativity, to her editing... everything about her pictures amazed me.  I knew I wanted her to shoot my family.  But life happens- and we just never got around to meeting.

After Zac was born I knew I wanted to make it a priority for her to get my beautiful boys on {digital} film... but as I've said before, I'm super picky about when and where I do professional shots.  I never do professional shots "just because"- mainly because I like the pictures I shoot of the boys and don't want to pay someone else to do it.  But I felt as though Zac's 1st birthday would be a great opportunity for us to have some professional shots done... and Caryn was the first person I thought of to call.

After years of knowing each other online we finally got to meet in person... and it was GREAT!  I couldn't have asked for a more patient and kind photographer... when I was about to lose it with Deacon she took him off of my hands and got him to calm down and SMILE... and she did so happily and with such grace.  I  was thrilled to learn that she's not always as patient with her own kids-- because let me tell you, I wasn't feeling very "mother of the year" like during family picture day.

I could seriously go on and on about Caryn... but I'll leave you with this- if you're in Northern California and want someone to shoot your kids or family (and by shoot, I mean photograph...), call Caryn at Eikon Photography.  Not only does she do an amazing job- she's affordable.  I have paid more money to go to Sears and have our picture taken... and the pictures weren't nearly as good and the experience... well, let's just say the experiences at Sears is incomparable to my experience with Caryn.

So, you want to see some of the pictures???

Visit Caryn's photography blog for a sneak peak (yes, a sneak peak... meaning, she took SO many more pictures... this is just a taste of what's to come):
