The Hesseltines

I was so excited to be given the opportunity to take pictures of this beautiful family.  They are some of the most genuinely sweet people I have meet.  And their children are adorable.  I am happy that my little man will have a boy his age near by to play with now that we have met them.  Thank you Hesseltines for opening your home to me to take these adorable pictures!

The Rodriquez Family

What a wonderful family!  The Rodriquez Family are so welcoming to their home and our kids love to play with one and another.  We met at gymnastics and our girls are in class together.  Meanwhile we try to contain our two boys who want to be part of the action.  So, much fun and semi-controlled caios with so many kids together, but we both get it and go with the flow.  Thanks for being our friends Rodriquez Family we are so happy to have you in our lives!

The Judd Family

Wow, what a cold day it was wednesday.  The Judd Family woke up early on Wed to take their family pictures and we decided to got to Oak Grove Park.  When we had looked at the weather we thought we were going to be okay because it was clearing up as far as rain. But, man it was so cold! I felt so bad for their little girls.  We would cover them up and bundle them up for 5-10 min then grab a couple shots.  The family really were troopers!  Luckily we got the shots we needed quickly.  Can I just say I hate Day light savings time.  Had there been no day light savings we could have done them later when it would have been warmer!  Again what troopers the family was! Thank you Judd Family, you were great!

The Wrights- family portraits

 It was so much fun taking pictures of The Wrights.  Their 3 boys are full of energy, like any boys are, but the were really good.  It was nice to go to the Ironstone vineyard in Murphy's, what a beautiful place for pictures.  Thanks Wright Family you were awesome!

Oh my! I love these new frames I'm going to carry!

So, I fell in love!  I can't tell you how much I love these new frames.  I am so excited to order up my starter package.   There are lots of different designs and are fitting for all different types of picture. You don't have to get one, but why not!  It's going to be a bit before I get my set ordered, but I had to share.

Name Change

So, started to do some research and I found out that I needed to have my last name in my business title.  I originally had gone back and forth between names and had chosen Portraits by Terri Ann simply because I thought I'd mainly focus on portraits.  However, I really like all aspects of photography.  Then I found out I needed to have my last name part of my company and that would make starting up much easier.  So, That does it...and for some reason I like it lots better.  I feel complete!  YEAH!  No more questioning, no more thoughts, I'm satisfied!  My company is officially Terri Fairbanks Photography.

My first Save the Date Session

Our dear friends are finally engaged and are planning their wedding.  They are very excited to announce when they are getting married so they wanted to send out Save the Date cards since they both have family from out of state.

So, here's a few of my favorites... even though there are so many.  I don't want to give away their cards.

Thanks Chad and Tausha for asking me to take your pictures!  It was so much fun.

Little Austin

It's so fun to see your child so excited about something every time they see it!  Austin absolutely loves this '70 bug and pretends to drive it all the time.  I just had to capture him having a great time.

School Time

The kids mom didn't want have school pictures at the school this year and have them be generic same old, same old pictures.  So, she asked if I'd take some for her.  I think they turned out great!  It really was fun.

Baby girl ~M~

My friend's sister-inlaw wanted pictures of her little girl too, so we did them at the same time.  She too was great!  At first a bit fussy, but we worked with it and eventually she love to just lay flat on the dresser.  She is absolutely adorable.


So this is my first baby sitting besides, my own kids and really close friends.  It was a blast!  I loved it.  However, he did not want to sleep no matter how much he just ate.  He was a great baby and loved to play with his tounge.  He was so cute!

Here's my First Post

My siter-inlaw has been telling me to start a photography business for a long while now.  And I haven't offically started.  However, I am taking pictures of friends and family for practice for now.  I have set up a site for them to see and if they want to, they can pass along my name to anyone if they like what I've done.  So, maybe I'll have this going in a couple more months.  But, for now here's a blog to update and give a few peeks at what I'm working on.
