little lady

Another mommy and me session.. I've said before how one of my favorite times in life was when i was able to be home with my first after she was born.  It's such a special time and flies by so quickly.  This little lady was great, learning to sit up on her own, and giving huge smiles and laughs for her mama.  You can tell these two share a special bond.  And don't overlook that beautiful nursery!  Ali is an interior designer and you can check out her page at Inspired By Designs.  

Images shot on both digital and film using Portra 800.

Just like today

"If I had a day that I could give you, I'd give to you the day just like today.
If I had a song that I could sing for you, I'd sing a song to make you feel this way."  ~ John Denver

These sessions are my favorite, when everyone is laughing, being silly, and just having fun.  And my day is made when a family can look at their images some time later, and wish to have a day just like that one.   Because time has passed and maybe the little ones don't look *quite* as little as they did in those pictures, even though it really was just yesterday.  That's why it's so important to document these memories.  Contact me if you'd like to make some images of your own.   I had a blast photographing this family, as always!  xo

All images on film (but 3) using Portra 400. Ilford hp5 for black and whites.

Paint night

These girls had a blast at this session, getting to paint in the park and make a mess. Who wouldn't love that? We were running late and at the end ran out of light, so we pulled their truck down into the field and used the headlights for some fun shots!  The girls didn't want me to leave and i feel the same way about them - till next time girls! Love you max, xo.

New man in the house

Right from the start of our photo shoot, this little guy was calm and alert, looking straight at me. His mom and i agreed he is an old soul. :)  Big sis was such a cutie too, and who wouldn't love a princess room like that?  Congratulations to this beautiful family on the addition of this little man, he will be well-loved for sure! 

Field of dreams and dress up

First, i headed out incognito...with my 8+ month pregnant belly, yankee hat and sunglasses, (no one noticed me at all) to take some shots at this little guy's T-ball game where dad was the coach, and mom wanted to give him the gift of photographs with his son. Then... back to their house for some play time with little sis.  They love their dress up and had so much together at this shoot, with lots of laughter and giggles. 

party of 5

This session is near and dear to my heart, since it's not often that you get to photograph your best friend's baby, let alone her third baby!  What a lucky little man to have these two as parents and to be born with two big brothers!   Can't wait to see the special bond they share as they grow up.  I was so honored to be there to capture these special moments for them.  Love you guys. xoxo  

little man in the park

The best sessions are the ones where the families are relaxed, in love with eachother, and HAPPY.  And this session definitely fit that bill.  I first photographed this adorable little boy when he was a guest at a friend's birthday party -- I was in love with his little face and scrunchy-nose-smiley-face (the same one my own son does!) from the start.
