Sweet little Amelia was too cold when we took her familes pictures the first time around, so she wasn't happy enough to cooperate. Mom had a genius idea to use her iphone to show Amelia some video of her riding a pony (which apparently brings her unimaginable joy!) to help bring the smiles. And it sure worked! What a darling girl...

And a serious one because it was too cute!

Brooke & Allyson

When I was first starting out with my photography, I did a session for Brooke & Allyson. They were much smaller THEN.

Well, it was that time again, and these two were GREAT subjects. Very well behaved and a lot of fun. And what cutie pies!

There were so many cute ones, I have been editing since we left each other and I couldn't decide which to post so I am posting a LOT of them!

This might be my favorite from the session.

Little lady Allyson.

You can tell she likes getting her picture taken!

She is so cute. You just want to squeeze her!

She is a firecracker but you can't tell in this photo!

What a beautiful pair!

Tiny Hayden Sneak Peek

Hayden is 3 weeks old and still tinier than any of my newborn babies that's for sure! I think is still in the 6+ lb range! We weren't able to get as many as I would have liked since he was past the 2 week mark and not sleeping as soundly, but what we did get are so darling. Lisa, I hope you love them!

Sharon & Kim

I feel so honored that Sharon and Kim chose me to capture their special day for them! Both had lost their spouses a few years ago, and it was wonderful to see the love they have been blessed to find again in each other. And what a gorgeous bunch the two families make together!

We had a BIG family shoot on Friday. This was the largest group I have ever photographed and it certainly was not without it's challenges: 17 children! But can you believe there was not ONE temper tantrum and they stayed put (for the most part). I am sure the smiles can be attributed to the fact that I am straddling a water fountain, and doing absurd dances to hold the kids attention. I have a bit of editing to get this one just right - but you get the picture ;)

and the winner of the best stinkface goes to.... (so cute!)

Personal Portraits

I got to shoot this AMAZINGLY beautiful group of friends. No really, all of them were so gorgeous, I couldn't even believe it. One of the most fun shoots I have done to date!



Lindsey (my personal trainer)



I hope they all feel a lot more beautiful and confident when they see how gorgeous all of their pictures turned out!
