Hudson is a senior!!! I’ve had the privilege of knowing Hudson and his family the last few years, and he is one-of-a-kind. He has a humble, genuine, committed character and he’s pretty much the nicest. Also, my daughters (who are 4 and 2) basically love him. 🙂 It’s so fun for me to change things […]

Friends, remember Sam (from that one time I photographed his incredible family being all awesome)? He’s graduating this year, and he KILLED his senior session. We’re talking “made-every-single-image-look-sooooo-good” killed it. Sam, let me know when you figure out how to bottle and sell that kind of confidence. 🙂 I am biased toward this one, because I had really wanted […]

Say hey to Alan, readers of the blog! His senior session was a total blast, and I could not stop gushing over his amazing smile, which did not leave his face throughout our shoot. LOOK AT HIM! Who rocks their senior photos like that? Well, ladies and gents, Alan does. 🙂 Bonus points: he wore […]

I just wanted to take a moment to introduce my new babe here on the blog! Jane Madeline Rawson was born February 22, and we are so very in love with her. She’s as sweet as they come, and our family seems to have been missing her before now – she is such an integral part […]

I’d just like to announce that Zach KILLED IT with his senior session. Having individual portraits taken of you is nerve-wracking for most, and he was totally relaxed through the whole thing. I mean, I could not have asked him to be more himself, and I love the shots we got. Congratulations on your senior […]

announcing: the love story sale

Posted in Other

I’m having a SALE, and I’m really excited about it! I’ve been thinking so much lately about why I do what I do. Why do I take people someplace pretty and click away on my camera and send them the results? It’s not really because people like .jpgs. Or really, that they like standing in […]

It was painful, PAINFUL, I TELL YOU, to only choose a handful of photos for this blog post. Addison pretty much turned each picture into gold throughout our entire time together, and her infectious smile brings a matching one to my face every time I look at these. What a sweetheart! Addison is the ultimate […]

One year old! Our girl is one! This is still blowing my mind, three weeks later. We wrapped up our monthly pictures on her birthday, and I need to take a moment to give myself a giant thumbs up for keeping a consistent project going through this crazy year. It is fairly unlike me to […]

Uh oh… it’s almost birthday time! Which means last year at this time, I was in full belly mode, anxiously awaiting little miss’s arrival. I remember it was HOT, I could hardly remember not being pregnant, we were only 90% decided on her name, and we were dying to know what she would look like. […]

She is ten months old! We’re having so much fun with her. My favorite thing lately is watching her learn things I would not have imagined happening already. She is mimicking us, and you can see her little wheels turning. I’ve added brushing her hair and brushing her teeth to the bedtime routine we try […]

9 months

Posted in Other

A few weeks back, my little lady turned 9 months old! That little milestone had me thinking so much about her independence. For 9 months, she was inside me, depending on me in the most natural, basic ways, and I was constantly and involuntarily meeting those little needs with every breath. I loved having her […]

These photos are becoming increasingly difficult to take. Mainly due to the fact that Claire’s resting state involves bouncing and that chair cushion is the perfect surface for that. She also likes to explore beyond the edge of the chair, so Dad has to “spot” her lying on the floor, which is incredibly distracting for […]

Seven months old. Woah! I just could not love this girl any more. The collage of monthly pictures always makes me giddy with anticipation of what the next month and the next photo will reveal. It’s like unlocking little pieces of who she is as she grows. Lately, we are bursting with pent-up-all-winter-long energy. Spring […]

Yeah, yeah, I’m a month behind. I know. I will probably always be at least a month behind. 🙂 She grew again. Six months is so much fun. She is so funny – loves attention, passionately plays to the point of frustration, and concentrates so very hard all day long. Her energy level far surpasses […]
