Sometimes I get really lucky and have the opportunity to photograph kids TWICE in one season.These two probably got a bit sick of me with all the photos but it resulted in a beautiful summer family session and this sunset-filled session with their Aunt. With these two, there are always some leaf shots, some fun […]

This family of two year old twins AND a sweet little one year old have their hands full. I mean FULL. And boy oh boy do those kids like to run! No one, adults included, sit still very long… or at all really. And that’s how it should be. I wish I had this amount […]

I consider myself pretty lucky to meet some really fun local families. And the B. Family is definitely one of them! We turned our late summer family photo shoot into a great adventure full of investigating mushrooms, collecting leaves & sticks and running through the forest. Which is ALWAYS how I hope sessions go. Mixing […]

Have I mentioned that I have one of the greatest jobs ever? Well I do. Because I get to spend my weekend mornings with families that I love, kids that I get to cuddle, and memories that I have the privilege of capturing.      Interested in capturing your family’s treasured moments? I’d be honored. […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

The A. Family are always one of my favorite to photograph. For this year’s holiday family photo shoot they were up for anything, and the dresses…oh the dresses!! And glittery shoes.  And big bows. As a mom living in a house full of boys, I very much appreciate all the glitter and fancy dresses.  So […]

What can I even say about these four smiling faces and their fall family photo session?!  The S. Family is such a sweet family and their two kids are so cuddly.  (Which I’m always impressed with because when I ask siblings to cuddle and give each other a hug during a session, the mom in […]
