I had the pleasure of working with Zeljka for a number of years and I miss seeing her lovely face every day. She and Chris were some of the first people to entrust me with the important task of documenting their family as it really started changing when Sam was born.

The two little ladies in this family are like my spirit animals. Like if they were combined into one person, because they’re really different, but…anyway. Gosh, I was glad to see these gorgeous faces again! And it doesn’t need noting, but Niki is a family-photo-outfit-coordinator extraordinaire. Girl, you should hire out your skills! Oh hey there, […]

I couldn’t be more partial to the precious people in these images. That will not stop me from gushing about them, and you’d better believe it’s 100% genuine. If I didn’t believe it, I wouldn’t say it. And I love these four something fierce. That blonde curly thing in the middle is my niece Maryn. […]

I had the privilege of doing a little family session with them during my last trip back home to Watertown. Elliot is a (little) man of one thousand faces. He’ll […]
