I receive lots of questions before photo shoots, but the most frequently asked question is always what to wear. It seems daunting, doesn’t it? To choose clothes for yourself is stressful enough, but now you have to dress the entire family?! And they are supposed to look good, and coordinate, and stay clean… oh, and […]

Ten Tips: What to Wear on your Family Photo Shoot

August 16, 2019

I consider myself pretty lucky to have the opportunity to photograph these six every year. And this year, it was extra special because we had the chance to include the WHOLE family (Wrigley included) in their summer session. May I just say that Wrigley might be the MOST photogenic & smiliest dog ever! The M. […]

Last week I was lucky enough to shoot an extended family session with all 18 members of the D. Family.  And they were a ton of fun!  Amidst a lot of laughter, I had the privilege of learning some really great grandma nicknames! And, we even got one shy little guy to not only pick […]

  We’ve gotten a ton of feedback and inquiries about the recent photos of the boys & our dog, so I decided to hold a little last minute “Best Friends” Mini Session. Of course, pets aren’t necessary… we take wild kids too! Best Friends MINIS * Up to 3 kids + pets (all kinds of […]

Best Friends Kids & Pet Mini Sessions during the Month of July

Our littlest in the family, who has wanted to be five like his big brother, has finally gotten there!  We celebrated with a gigantic nerf gun party with lots of preschoolers, and as soon as mom recovered from that, we baked a birthday cake together, ate dinner at his favorite restaurant (Emerson’s!), and headed outside […]

These two families, which were part of a larger extended shoot with lots more adorable grandchildren, are the best! I’ve known them all my life, and just look at how well these five cutie pies did!?  I know family photos can be stressful.  I get it. I have two boys.  Kudos to these parents who […]

Every family that I have the honor to photograph leaves a little mark on my heart.  For me, photography is a way to preserve the legacy of life.  We all have a short time here, and one day all that is left are our beautiful memories.  So this family, more than any other last year, […]

I adore this big family!  All six of them did such an amazing job on their family session this past fall.  (Have I mentioned that I’m a little bit behind on blogging sessions?!).  They combined their fall family shoot with their little guy’s first birthday photos.  May I just say he is the easiest, happiest, […]

This little sweet pea… well, honestly, she’s the most fun to photograph.  She’s just a doll and is always up for anything including creating some stunning black and white portraits. So in addition to taking a few shots with her baby doll, her mermaid, and some of her pets, we spent a good ten minutes […]
