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.

welcome, baby k

i love photographing newborn babies.  the newness, the squishy-ness, swaddles like a burrito, mom and dad discovering their new baby together, baby feet !!, big sister adapting and helping out, pretending their dolls are their new babies. I love getting it all on camera, and being able to give the parents reminders of what those early times were like. because really, who can remember. i am still in a fog, myself.  This session is a special one to me.  We love you, baby K!

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!
