Lottie


i have been photographing charlotte rose since she was born.  shortly after her first birthday i got to visit her at her new home and be amazed at how big she's gotten.  i could not get over how adorable she is with her little blonde curls framing her face.

Brooke is a senior and a goalie on my husband's soccer team. our family loves watching her play. 

i was excited but nervous to take senior photos for her.  i really wanted the photos to capture brooke's spirit. i had an idea of what i wanted to get...

more mini sessions!

by request, i happily added one more day of mini sessions for the holidays.  i love seeing families this time of year.  some families i'm meeting for the first time.  some i get to see often.  many of them i see just once each year.  when i see them we talk about where the year went and i marvel at how much the kids have changed.

again we had lovely weather, the best location, and i have the most beautiful, most fun clients of all time.  see for yourself, here are some peeks :

madison + austin

i thought i loved this family before i photographed them.

we have been friends since madison was weeks old.  spending time with their family is always fantastic.  when i come to take photos, they really allow me to just document - they get it.

shaniece + mike in napa


i am lucky to have spent shaniece and mike's wedding weekend with them in napa valley, california.  for four days they were surrounded by the love, laughter, tears and hugs (so many hugs!) of a close group of friends and family who traveled from across the US to meet them in lush and lovely napa.

savannah rose


i was so happy to be asked to photograph Savannah.  the photo session was a gift to her parents from another wonderful client.  i love that kind of generosity.

savannah is beautiful and her family is over the moon with her arrival. they have waited for her for a long, long time.  her big sister is especially awestruck. watching the sisters together was the best part of the shoot.  i found myself thinking: savannah is one very loved and lucky baby girl.

baby madeline


 i have a tiny new cousin.

i was lucky enough to meet baby madeline about 12 hours after she entered this world.  i grabbed a few quick photos of her in the hospital for her mom and dad.  babies change so fast!  you really have to be sure to get great photos right away - they will never look the same again.

also - i have a thing for photos of babies in hospital blankets and hats.  those little pink and blue stripes are iconic.  and as madeline's grandmother said, they never change.  they probably swaddled madeline's parents and grandparents as their nervous moms and dads prepared to take them home years ago.

james and erin, she is beautiful.

waiting for baby Kate

i was happy to meet natalie and her boys.  they are expecting baby kate to arrive any time now, bringing a flood of little pink baby things with her.  

i cannot wait to meet kate when i come back for newborn photos, but i am mostly excited to watch harrison be a big brother! he is so spirited and such fun to be around, i just know he is going to love his little sister.

ella


beautiful ella.  i was so happy to get to photograph ella at her home.  after she was born, ella spent more than her fair share of time at the hospital.  coming home was a wonderful milestone.  i was able to document a quiet day at home just snuggling with mom and dad.  not that special for some families, but precious to ella's.

Peter and his family

 
peter is the most beautiful little man.  he is also the most loved!  he was welcomed home by mom, dad, two big sisters, and two grandparents.  the girls are so excited to have a brother! and his mommy is so much in love.  

i have been blessed to have been photographing peter's family since they became a family, and i've felt lucky for my role in their lives every time i'm around them.  i always leave happier than i came.

katie


katie was my neighbor when i was in high school.  our fathers worked together.  she was little and i took photos of her at the playground for my photography class!  both of our families have moved around the world since then - and stayed friends.
