Just one from yesterday’s beautiful newborn session.

This little lady was so good for me. I love baby booms, this week I get to meet three brand new little souls.


This baby boom so early in the month means I have un-expected room later in the month for newborn sessions. If you or anyone you know is due soon have them contact me asap! Newborn sessions are best when prepped ahead of time. 🙂

I have known Katie B for many years. We grew up going to the same summer camp. She has always been sweet, kind and funny in that easy way only the really good ones can pull off. When she married the also kind & funny Chad a few years back I had a blast capturing their wedding. Since then the couple has added another member of the family, and oh man is he adorable!

It was my pleasure to point my camera at this adorable family again, meet the little man, and catch up.

Check out my favorites…
