Sweet little Claire came to see me in the studio not too long ago, and was a pleasure to point my camera at. She was sweet, sleepy, curled up and above all adorable. I just love newborns, and she is the perfect example of why. Newborns don’t care about my schedule, or about posing for the camera, they just want to sleep, eat and be loved. And really isn’t that what life is really about? Sweet little Claire is a very loved little princess too. Her Mom & Dad were clearly so in love with this little lady, and I could see why.

Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.


Gah those little fog leg booties just kill me! Katie thanks again for coming down to the studio and sharing your sweet little Claire with me. She is a doll, and you all are super sweet together. I had such a nice time just chatting with you all. As a new client I would of course love to offer you a blog challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post I will throw in a set of cute little brag books on the house. Perfect for showing off a cute little girl you might know. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So leave some love people!

    Rachel H - your booth looked great emily!


I have been dying to show you all the rest of Amy & Greg’s engagement session for some time now. The night was warm, beautiful and the light was perfect. Our location was rustic and endlessly inspiring. My lovely couple Amy & Greg are not only sweet hearts, but incredibly good looking and stylish. Really, a photographer’s dream. I also love this session as the theme was special to the couple. These two will be having a over the top fabulous new years wedding, but wanted something more rustic for their engagement photos. I think we captured the rustic style they were looking for, plus had a great time.

Here are a few, ha ok MANY of my favorites from our session:

Amy & Greg thanks again for coming out to meet me in the sticks, and being up for anything!ย  I had such a fun time working with you two, I can not wait to capture your wedding. I have so many more to show you, the gallery will be done shortly! I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek. And of course like all my new clients I would love to throw down a blog challenge for you. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post I will throw in a 11×14 wall mount on the house! So leave some love people!

It is kind of unreal how cute this family is. They are the kind of family a photographer dreams about. Nice, funny, charming, well behaved kids, and all good looking to top it off. The rain even stopped for our session, it was amazing! The whole Gooddale family was ideal to work with, but the two giggling kiddos stole my heart. Just look at these two adorable little blond peanuts, how could you not love them! We had a great time running around their favorite park and playing in the leaves. I could have taken their photos all day long.

Here are a few of my favorites from our time together. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kim thanks again for meeting up with me and sharing some of your family time. Your kiddos are darling! I hope you love your sneak peek, your whole gallery will be up shortly. For now I would love to offer you a little blog challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post I will throw in a darling little set of wallet brag books. Perfect for showing off 2 little blond kiddos. ๐Ÿ˜‰
