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’ve been photographing families (and people in general) long enough to know (at least) eight things you can pretty much count on that WILL happen during your photo shoot… and why it’s all okay.

Oh Owen.  Sweet little Owen.  He just finished his summer backyard shoot like a champ!  Now there happens to be a whole second half of this session due to a new family addition, but in the meantime, I’m going to show you him.  All him.  Because the first kid deserves a bit of the spotlight […]
