This is Arya.

Isn’t she beautiful?

She is a 3 year old Alaskan Husky with Timber and Grey Wolf.

Big Baby~

007-07192016Pet and Newborn most challenging subjects, but I love them so much.
I had a squeaky toy and a treat on top of my head.
This is her bark that tells me to play with her…with her rump stuck up in the air and her tail wagging, I was laughing so hard, trying to keep those items on my head, focusing, and trying to take her picture. :o)

013-07192016I love her eyes.


Treats are yummy.


This is my favorite.
Natural light from my left, black fleece, and black room dividers, to block the light.

IΒ  had to work with her, to get her to sit a little beyond the black dividers, so that the light spilled across her front. I also had a large reflector to my right, set back, just a little fill on her left side.
I started with a meow..then I went “bock, bock, bock,Β  like a chicken, but it wasn’t until I barked like a big bad dog, that her tongue went in, and her ears perked up. :o)

What a beauty~ Such a sweet young girl.


This was her, “more treats, please” look.

I had a great time. Thanks Arya and I’ll see you soon~

“Out of the belly of Sheol I cried, and You heard my voice. For you cast me into the deep, into the the heart of the seas, and the floods surrounded me; All Your billows and Your waves passed over me. Then I said, ‘I have been cast out of Your sight; Yet I will look again towards Your holy temple.’ The waters surrounded me, even to my soul; The deep closed around me; Weeds were wrapped around my head. I went down to the moorings of the mountains; the earth with its bars closed behind me forever; Yet You have brought up my life from the pit, O Lord, my God. When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the Lord; and my prayer went up to You, into Your holy temple. Jonah 2:2-7

046-07142016I meet beautiful people every day.

Truth be told, I can find something beautiful about everyone I see..and often I see many beautiful things about every person.

038-07142016I’ve held myself back from going up to complete strangers, of whom I’d love to introduce myself as a photographer..that would love to take their picture. haha~

Lucky for me, I’m blessed with 2 daughters, and I find many things beautiful about them. They have grown up in front of my camera, so we have this comfortableness and ease that I think allows me to capture, in my opinion, very beautiful portraits.

008-07142016I like to try new lighting techniques, and poses..such a wonderful creative outlet.
She’s my oldest and, honestly, they both are so much fun to photograph and even come up with great ideas and suggestions.

This shot is going on my wall, as a bw canvas. It’ll match a similar one that I have of my youngest daughter.

036-07142016She’s a seamstress and a dance teacher..and her little fingers are great producers. :o)


love her dimples~


I have a set of black room dividers that I use to block/direct light and we decided to add them to the shot…I’ll use them more in the future.



It is true that there are some poses that work better with different body types and even personalities. I like to try different things, you never know how they will look, even if they are slightly uncomfortable at the time. She was fine here, just tossing her hair back, but I love it.

041-07142016I have a new reflector, it’s called and eye lighter it. It brightens the eyes and puts an extra pop on the face and neck.



040-07142016Beautiful laughter..she laughs at me a lot, haha!

When she’s sitting, the light looks a little more dramatic, it’s up higher, since she sat down, so the light is coming down on her face..Butterfly Lighting. I could have used a reflector to throw the light back up into her eyes, and to soften the dark shadows under her neck. I liked this look, but we did use the eye lighter reflector for other sit-down shots.034-07142016in the moment~

020-07142016I love this shot..we moved the reflector closer, so you can see how light her eyes are now, and the shadows under her neck have been lightened as well.


015-07142016You can see the reflector in the bottom half of her eyes in this shot.


Well, I’m very pleased with what we did.
I like the black backdrop..fleece..I just need to get more. Love the eye lighter reflector, and I love my subject.

Both of my girls are very sweet and good to me.
I’m so blessed~

Thanks Jordon!!!
“Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying, ‘Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him, and they have frustrated the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they should not serve nor worship any god except their own God! Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, or language which speaks anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego shall be cut into pieces, and their houses shall be made an ash heap; because there is no other God who can deliver like this.” Daniel 3:28, 29

013-05192016Head Shots

Should they be dreaded?


What a great way to show the world your personality or style.001-05192016

Backdrops, lighting, clothes, and poses can allow for different aspects of your personality to be more dominate or subdued.

003-05192016Classic and traditional, formal or informal. Depends on what you want.



Props, like glasses can add personality to your head shot.




012-05192016Even jackets can add a little something.

Holland 3 years. Mt Juliet Tn Children Photography Rubel Photography


Holland is 3 now.

She has beautiful dark eyes, like her Daddy.
She is beautiful, like her Mommy…Β and I loved all her little poses and smiles~
Such a little lady~


Isn’t she adorable?
I would guide her a little in where I wanted her, then she would settle into a beautiful pose.
004-05212016Then I would catch her looking at her Mom..~love~


Quick clothes change..she looks so good in bright colors.

009-05212016 much.


Stinker-bug..she made some funny faces from time to time..I just happened to catch this one.



016-05212016bThen we headed over to the playground..such a nice treat!



Slides are so much fun!





Holland, you are such a are curious, and smart, and have the funniest dry sense of humor. I also loved chatting with your pretty Mom. :o)

Thank you both for a wonderful morning, loved our time together!

Alex~ Newborn Photography. Mt Juliet TN Newborn Photography Rubel Photography


be still my heart~

So perfectly wonderful and loved.


Prayed for..longed for..finally home.


Joining his new family, so much love to give and to share.



He’s happy about everything right now :o)


He was born into love, but because of circumstances, his parents chose to share this precious child, a most valuable gift, with another family…what a blessing beyond measure.



He was born 7 weeks early and weighed 4lbs 5 oz.

By the time we took these pictures, he had gained over a lb..such a fighter and sweet baby.




I have to admit that he has been the sleepiest baby I have photographed to date. He let us move him and dress, undress, move him more, kiss him in between all the things we did. haha, he was just so agreeable :o)


For being so tiny, he was still a little chunky. Good eater, and we loved his hair.



happy dreams~





This momma has been so patient and prayed and kept the faith. We are all so happy for her and her family.


Still sleeping, nestled in..looking adorable.

057-05262016We had this session in their home, so as I was planning and packing, I tried to think about her decor and taste. You usually don’t limit pictures of your newborn to the nursery, so I picked out complimentary textures and colors, then no matter where she displays these pictures, they will match. I love this set up and the colors. I love him too.



We picked a white wall near their window and set this up. They are currently renovating their house, including the walls, and floors, so although the floors are not finished, I love them. He is so scrumptious~



074-05262016Baby lips~



This is the Family~


I’m so happy for them~

She is a whiz of a decorator, and has fantastic helpers, along with a sharp eye for cool stuff.
Alex is very interested in Snow, the fur baby.

081-05262016This is Alex’s victory pose. Look how strong he is.

083-05262016 precious


His biological parents gave him this blanket and little friend. He’s a happy boy.


Alex will leave you with his sweet smile and the encouragement that no matter what your circumstances are, rest in the faith that God is in control and that HE loves you very very much. HIS timing is perfect.
