Okay, he's my brother... prepare yourselves for way too many photos from he & Heather's engagement shoot! :)

Love you guys!

Maybe I should have put these into storyboards instead of like 13 photos one right after the other... haha!

Okay people, I need your help here!! Justin & Mary are arguably my favorite photographers in the wedding industry. Plus they have wicked interior design style, I love watching their home makeover posts! Well, Mary posted a blog a few days ago asking for people to submit inspiration boards to get the juices flowing for her own office! I decided to play along and GUESS WHAT?!!?!! I'm up for voting! The prize is a $100 gift card to Home Depot, and I want this baby bad!!

(This is the inspiration board I came up with... don't you want to vote for me?!)

SO in order to vote, go to and read the post,
and VOTE FOR ME!!! 

I will be forever grateful. :)

The last few weeks | Enjoying being a mommy of 1!

Stella & I have been spending a lot of time together being goofy, reading books, and of course taking photos :) Pretty soon there will be another baby in the house and Stella won't know what to do with herself! And I'm pretty sure I'll be a little overwhelmed too... So, for now... we're enjoying these little moments and trying to just relax!



Um, seriously, look @ her eyes!
My girl is so gorgeous.

Surprise!! | I gotta bun in the oven :)

A big thanks to the wonderful Alyssa Henry for snapping a few shots of my beluga sized belly!
We had a lot of fun and I am really excited to share the news, finally now that I have a few photos to prove it! So, the rumors are true. The Carlson's are having another baby. Want details?... The ultrasound tech says it's a girl so that's what we're planning on! I am actually 32 weeks along, so we're getting to the end now. Due in July... and... I have massive heartburn. TMI? :)

It feels really weird putting up photos of myself on this blog, but thankfully Alyssa did a great job!

Well. Now you know.

What does this mean for Carly Carlson Photography? Well, obviously I'm not really taking any summer sessions this year. No weddings this year, either... and the Fall has very limited booking opportunities. So basically, if you are planning on a fall session, let me know ASAP so I can get you on my calendar!

I do have to say I am super excited to be posting a ton of newborn photos here in a few weeks! (Oh, and the no longer being pregnant part will be nice, too!)

Dylan & Heather | Sneak Peek

My baby brother is getting married (insert HUGE GASP here) and we're so excited! We love Heather and I had a lot of fun doing some very quick engagement photos for them last weekend. Just one for now!

Wait... I thought it was Cinco de Mayo, not April Fools.


This one is straight out of camera- how RAD is that? 
I love how the wide angle gets a natural vignette. Neato burrito. 
I said burrito because it's Cinco de Mayo...
and I didn't get enough sleep last night... Movin' on! :)

Prom Mini's | Part IV {7 couples = a really big group...}

I'm actually a little sad this is the last prom mini post for 2010! This was probably the most fun I've had all year. And this group?! Seriously! 14 people! It was a LITTLE crazy, but so fun.


Meet the couples... most of which I had given new names to by the end of the shoot simply because I couldn't keep their REAL names straight! Hey, give me a break, we only had 30 minutes!









The lovely ladies...


And the handsome men...


Thank you SO much to everyone who participated in the Prom Mini's this year! It was, hands down, a total blast. I'm already planning next year's Prom Mini day!! Hope you enjoyed them!
