It’s not often that I get to work with families in my very own neighborhood. Aside from just convenience, it is always nice to meet people in our small but growing town. The D family moved up a few years ago from Texas. Bringing with them their darling boy and now adding a sweet little brother to the mix. It was a pleasure to meet the whole family, and to spend some time with the boys. Birth brother was fully of giggles and character, and little brother was gentle and sweet as could be.

Here are a few of my many favorites from our session…

Lisa thanks again for having me up to your house to meet your boys. They are both darling. I had a great time meeting you all. As always I love to offer new clients a little blog challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this blog post, I will throw in a set of little brag books on the house. Have fun!

    remember when - […] The shoot was a great way to get out and stretch our creative muscles on the “off season” and do a fun protect with a group of local wedding vendors. The shoot was picked up on “Ruffled Blog” and just recently I was asked again for use of the images by an online Magazine called “Sweet Violet”. You can see their latest issue online here, our photo is on page 119. […]


Once again the Price family is on my blog, you may remember them from one of my favorite & most fun weddings, and then more recently from their newborn session. Well it is time again, and this time Mr. M is back and even bigger and more adorable! Oh the smiles, oh the chubby legs, oh the silly faces! This little charmer is such a pleasure to have in front of my lens. 🙂

Here are a few of my many favorites…

    phyllis remy - What an adorable little guy. great photos.


i love my job.

Really how could I not working with sweet baby girls like this one. Baby sister was sweet, sleepy and so gentle. On top of sweet baby girl I also got to work with her super adorable big brother who was also gentle and adorable. The entire family was lovely and a joy to work with. I should have known the kids would be dolls. I remember their mama from long ago. She and I shared a rural bus route as kids. It was so lovely to reconnect and meet her darling little ones.

Here are a few of my favorites from our session.



Danielle thanks again for making the trek all the way up to the studio. I had a great time seeing you again and meeting your sweet babies. They are both simply adorable. She is a doll. I look forward to seeing you all again soon as she gets even bigger. As you know I love my little blog post challenges. If you can get 30 people to comment on this little post I will throw in a darling set of mini brag books. Perfect for showing off a little lady and darling big brother.

It is always such a huge compliment when I am hired by wedding industry friends.

Recently I was hired by Sunny of Puddle Jumpin Cards to do some new head-shots & product photography for her. Sunny does interesting and creative wedding invitations and paper products. We have had the pleasure of working together a few times. She does some amazing work, it really was my pleasure to capture it.

I just love doing head shots for other creatives, it is always so fun!

Here are a few of my favorites:

Sunny thanks again for meeting me and being so fun to work with! Drinks and immature jokes again soon. 🙂
