Boys will be boys...

Here is the last preview for Amy...for a short while! :) We took the boys out to get some pictures of just them....before the baby comes in a short few weeks! I think Hunter (the older one) ended up making it though with having a bit of fun. Trey on the other hand, was just mellow....caught a few smiles but mostly he was very busy watching others going by! The best part of the session was watching Trey love on his big brother! It was sooo sweet!

Now that Spring time is here and everyone is ready for pictures, I thought it was the best time to let you know who is behind Chunky Monkey and what Chunky Monkey stands for! This way when it comes to picking the photographer to capture your families memories, you know alittle bit more about me and who I am!

My name is Heather Bush. I am a wife to a great husband who has supported my dream every step of the way. I am a mother of two...of course they keep me on my toes. My stepson is 11 and my daughter will be two this April. She is my inspiration and the backbone behind what I do. She even gave me the reasoning behind my name...she is my Chunky Monkey! Without my family, I could not do what I do on a daily basis and I thank them for that!

Many people ask me how I came about doing photography. I am proud to say that I am self taught. I have always loved photography, (hence the photobook after photobook on my book shelf) and found that it was something that I enjoyed doing and was good at. It was something that I could get up in the morning and not dread going to work to do....I love meeting all the new people and most of all, playing with those adorable kiddos!! When I started Chunky Monkey Photography, I was working full time in the corporate world. I did both for just about a year. In December 2008, I had created a business and a name for myself. I quit and have been full time in 2009. The best decision that I ever made! I have more time with my daughter, more time with my family and I LOVE WHAT I DO!!!

What do you get when you DO choose Chunky Monkey Photography?
On top of the pictures, CD with print release and a relaxed photography session…you get a photographer who is ready to go have a lot of fun while capturing those priceless moments in your life! You get a photographer who is dedicated to your family and what your family is all about, you are not just “another session” on my books. I want to get to know each one of you, what makes you smile, what makes those eyes light up. After all, that is what makes a great photograph. It’s not always the location or what’s in the background. It is ALL about who is in the picture!

After your session, I will work diligently in editing your families memories. I know how important getting the pictures so I work hard to meet my deadline of one week to get your session completed and a preview up on my blog! Then the CD will be mailed to you and you should receive it within just a few days!

What you DO NOT get when you choose Chunky Monkey Photography?
Rushed sessions, long wait times for your CD’s, any gossip, drama or negative remarks on my sites from me or anyone else. You do not get pushed to someone else to take care of my business for me; I am here for you and any and all questions, concerns, thoughts, opinions, expressions, etc! I want to keep your experience a positive and a happy one! If for any reason at any time, you experience any of the above from or about Chunky Monkey Photography, please let me know!

Why are my prices so low compared to some of the other photographers?
First and foremost, I try to relate to all the moms out there that want to get great memories of their families at a price that is reasonable. I want to reach those parents who want to capture the memories throughout the year, not just once a year! That is why I do the mini sessions that I do, at a price that makes it just right. That is why my regular session fee is what it is….something that everyone can be a part of! You should not have to break the bank to capture your special memories…and there are a lot of them!

I want to thank everyone who takes the time to see what Chunky Monkey Photography is all about. I hope one day soon, I can get to know you and your family and capture all those silly smiles and eskimo kisses!

Thank you for choosing Chunky Monkey Photography!!!

Gotta love TWINS!!! And a BIG SISTER!!!

TWINS!! Gotta love them! Its amazing how two babies are soo much a like yet soo different. I had met their big sister back at the Santa Clause sessions in December...she was patiently waiting for her little brother and sisters entrance into this world. After a short time after birth they came home and began to grow into their own! I went and spent a few hours earlier this week with them and had a lot of fun! The first picture was the attempt to get BIG SISTER (she is almost 3) to sit still and look at the camera...she was much more interested in everything else BUT that! Mom, the CD will be on the way tomorrow! Hope you enjoy the preview!

A Family Maternity Session!

This maternity session was so much fun!! I had just hung out with the family the past weekend for bunnies so I had already made friends with the little one...he is super cute! The big brother was less than thrilled about doing maternity pictures but with some strong convincing and some bribes..he came out of his shell and had some fun! We followed up a few days later with a session of just the boys so those pictures are coming. Now..we sit and wait for little Rylan to join us....waiting patiently!!! :)
He was playing "mom"...she had just done the same pose! HOW CUTE!
Little big brother...AWW!!!
Big brother....a lot of bribing went into this picture!
