It all started with a cute couple and some dogs on a beach and my camera. Then I was hired to capture an amazingly fun but rainy wedding day. Then a few years later big sister joined the team and got bigger, and bigger.

And now it my pleasure to capture this super cute family as they welcome baby boy B into the family. He was just adorable to capture! As always I adore these guys. I am so happy for them, and can not wait to watch this family grow again.

Here are a few of my favorites:

I met Nancy & John a few years ago, while photographing Nancy’s daughters wedding. It was a lovely day. So when Nancy contacted me this winter, and said it was now her turn to walk down the isle, I was so pleased! Everyone deserves all the happiness life has to offer, I am so honored to capture these two while they grab onto that happiness. ๐Ÿ™‚

We did a little pre-wedding session recently. Even in the cold and the rain, the love these two share clearly shines through.

Here are a handful of favorites…

It is such a pleasure watching families grow.

It was a few years ago I met these guy’s expecting parents, then got to meet baby Max. It was just last year we reconnected and now it was my pleasure to capture baby brother! It has been allot of fun capturing these guys over the years, and I am so thrilled to meet the newest member darling Alexander. He was sweet, a tad feisty, but oh so cute!


Here are a few of my favorites from the day…

2015 was filled with love, new life, amazing stories and beautiful moments. I was really moved by all the special moments I got to capture this year, and all the people I got to meet.

I just want to say THANK YOU!

Here is a slideshow of just a few of my favorite images fromย  the year.


I also want to say a HUGE thank you to those of you who recommended me to your friends and family. The majority of my business is a direct result of personal referral, so I could not do what I love with out you! Thank you all who get my name out there. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope to see you all, and even more new faces in 2016!
