I absolutely love getting together with this crew. They are so full of life, always joking with one another and the kids are total straight-shooters (inspiring laughter from dad and head shaking from mom). I always leave smiling and full of energy. They’re awesome. Remember Calvin? Remember how cute and adorable and little he was […]

The adjustment to a new normal of having your first baby around can be described with plenty of adjectives, but the one I think pairs best with each one of them is “grateful”. You’re enamored + grateful; changed + grateful; exhausted + grateful. I can see gratitude all over AJ and Maddy when they look […]

Say hello to little baby Hadley! Every newborn session feels special and sacred right now. All masked up and sanitized and distanced and not touching anything, I actually go into people’s houses – something that’s become rare and unsanctioned. Seeing these perfect babies has been one of the best parts of my whole year. Hadley […]

Woah, these boys are handsome! These two brothers won me over (in about .02 seconds) at Kayden’s newborn session and here we are six months later! It was a delight to see them again. Kayden was pretty serious-faced and curious during our time unless Kian was in sight, and then it was just adorable smiles […]

It was pure joy to have these cuties back for photos this year. They may as well be adults, now, and sister dynamics are basically my favorite thing ever. We had a fun time! Sienna is just striking! Her style, personality, pixie cut (heck yeah!) and dimples are the best combo. She’s also very poised, […]

Pure happiness is on it’s way for these two! Their maternity session was fun, sweet and heartwarming – despite some chilly weather. We walked around their breathtaking acreage, and I felt like I was with family, even though we’d just met. Their baby boy will be here in a matter of days – I’m so […]

Before you begin scrolling through this session, take a moment to prepare your eyes for cuteness. There are really high amounts of it and you may appreciate the warning. Ready? Great. Let’s go! Maximus is a handsome, curious, wild three-year-old, and sweet, mover-and-shaker Graycen recently celebrated her first birthday. They are quite the duo, and […]

Ever since this family’s maternity session a few months ago, I’ve been anticipating the sweetness of meeting their third baby girl. She did not disappoint!! Welcome to the world, Catherine Dolores! I have a feeling she isn’t going to be getting a lot of personal space, and I love that this means she will always […]
