It is a small, small world. When Dani emailed me about newborn photos for her brand new baby boy just days after he was born I jumped at the chance to meet the new little guy. It is so important to capture little ones with in the first few days of life. it was not until I got to the home Dani and I realized we actually knew each other from our long ago collage days! It is a small world for sure. I had a great time capturing this adorable family. Wyatt was so good for me, even though his adorable big brother Owen almost stole the show with his cuteness. This family was so sweet, and great in front of the camera.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Dani and family  for having me out to meet the family. I had a great time hanging with you all. It was my pleasure to capture your little man and the whole family.:)As new clients I would also love to break out a comment challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this blog post I will throw in a set of cute little brag  books! Perfect for showing off an oh so beloved family and cute little guy.:)

Hey hey hey pretty ladies and dapper gentlemen! Are you getting married or celebrating your commitment in June or early July this year? If so call me up! I am still available for a few dates and would love to capture some beautiful couples celebrating their love.

I have been photographing this little guy for a long time, it all started with his parents wedding, then the maternity session, then a quick trip to the hospital, and then a cute little newborn. Well Sweet Liam is 6 months old now and all cuteness! He is such a good baby, and so lovely for me of course!


Here are a few of my favorites…


He is so cute right?!


We also had the added surprise of popping a secret at our session. I got to be there when Jamie told Will Liam was going to be a big brother! Clearly they are all super excited.:)


I think this one is my favorite. His sparkly eyes and goofy face kills me.


Ok maybe this one… I can not decide!

And one last shot of Cool Liam.


Jamie & Will thanks again for letting my point my camera at your little man. I can not wait to meet #2!

    Kathy - Oh man, that hat is fantastic! What a cutie pie! I am sure his little sibling is going to be JUST as adorable!


Just before Christmas I received  very sweet phone call. The call was from a local great-auntie looking for a last moment gift certificate. Over the phone she described an lovely family, she said Sydney is nothing short of adorable, with two sweet loving parents and adoring grandparents. I was excited to finally meet the family this spring! We had a great time doting on little miss Sydney, and talking about how fast babies grow. She is one now, and toddling too!

Here are a few of my favorites from our session:


Kitling, Joel, Joe & Carol thanks for coming down to the studio and playing. I had a great time meeting you all. It was my pleasure to capture your little lady and the whole family.:)  As new clients I would also love to break out a comment challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this blog post I will throw in a set of cute little brag  books! Perfect for showing off an oh so beloved family and cute little lady.:)
