Every year I see her again this sweet little girl gets cuter and cuter.  This was her 4th annual session, and this time we had fun exploring a new location, where she told us all about the dragons in the park.

This sweet baby girl was just a perfect model for us at our photoshoot–6 days old and sleepy, but not too sleepy that she didn’t open up her eyes for a few photos too.  Seriously, is that not the cutest smile?   I have been talking with her mom about our photoshoot for several months, so it was great to finally meet her!

Baby Brother in Blue

April 29, 2014


I have had a great run of return newborn clients recently, and this week I got to see another family return with baby #2.  I had the chance to photograph big sister when she was a baby, and now I got to work with her again with her baby brother.   They looked picture-perfect in their adorable outfits.

I really enjoyed this session last week–big brother was full of huge smiles and fun ideas, and his baby brother had the best little head of newborn hair.  It was great having another family return for a second round of newborn portraits with their second baby.

Inaugural Session

April 8, 2014



I’m so excited to announce that after 7 months of waiting I am finally in my new studio space!   I was looking forward to have this family come for the first session in the studio, and we had such a great session.  I first met them over 3 years ago when I did a maternity and newborn session for their older daughter.  Now they were back with their new family of 4, and both girls were just angels to work with, and mom was so well prepared with all the great wardrobe choices.  It was a great start for my new studio.

2 Pink 2 Blue

March 26, 2014


I worked with this family a few years ago and this time they have added two new family members: boy/girl twins!  We discovered just how much these little guys love to snuggle up today.  Big brother and big sister were great helpers during the session, and big sis even made it into some of the photos.  Big brother wasn’t quite as keen on having his picture taken. ; )
