I was swooning hard before, during and after the hour I spent with these guys. Not only are they old friends, they’re the best kind of people. The kids are fun, so sweet, love to get dirty (so we did), and they squeeze fun out of everything. Love them! Justine and Andrew were among the […]

There’s not a whole lot more exciting than expecting your first baby. Everything’s about to change for Jared & Anna, and they’re the kind of people who are going to seem like they’ve been parents forever after just days with baby. It just fits them. I was beyond honored to document this time of anticipation […]

This beautiful baby lay wide-eyed, perfectly still, making the sweetest faces every minute I was in this family’s home. I am smitten, and her parents…well, they’re gonna be in trouble when it comes to having to say ‘no’ to this perfect baby girl. Hattie, you are stealing hearts already, and have so much to share […]

This session was such an honor. These three were visiting from Italy (woah!) and during their precious time with family, we worked in a photo session. I fell hard right off the bat for little Siena, who just happened to be turning ONE that very day. She is the sunniest little girl!  Gosh, these next […]

One of the most naturally happy families I ever did see. The Olivers! You know for sure when mom doesn’t ask any questions or even raise an eyebrow to meeting for photos in a nondescript parking lot on a busy street, that you’ve got a winner. 🙂 These boys were so much fun! I love their brother […]

Twins. Twins!!!! Twins and their families have me in the deepest awe, so don’t be surprised in this post to find me at a lack for words. I’m just in sheer admiration of what it takes to parent a new baby, not to mention two of them.

Almost exactly two years ago, I met this endearing family for a maternity session (Megan was then expecting miss Charlotte) and immediately fell in love. Their girls are bright-eyed and ready for anything, and it’s so much fun chasing them around, teasing their beautiful smiles out. 🙂 Their parents say these girls are total opposites, […]
