Abby

I met Abby two years ago as a newborn. She was absolutely adorable then, but just look at her now! She has the cutest little lips and eyes that smile at you! She is so full of personality and it really came across in her photos. Here is a little sneak peek from our session…

Maya

One year ago, I was called to Methodist Hospital to photograph a baby who was born still. Upon my arrival, I met the Wheat family. They introduced me to their beautiful baby girl, Peyton. My heart ached for them, and I will never forget the sorrow I felt that day. Fast forward exactly one year to the day later; I received an e-mail that this family was expecting their second daughter, due any day. Sweet baby Maya was born the very next day, exactly one year and one day after her sister. What an amazing story! I get chills every time I think of them! I am deeply honored to introduce Maya Estelle…

The “N” Family

Can you say Indian Summer? I am stunned by this warm weather lately! Who knew it would last?? Well, I’m definitely thankful for these warm November days as it has allowed me to get all of these wonderful outdoor sessions! Meet the “N” family…little Vivian & Graham kept me hopping that’s for sure. They were full of energy and ready for fun! Dad was on “funny-face” patrol and who knew the word “peanut” was so funny?

The “B” Family

It was the most beautiful day at the park today! The colors were stunning, the sun was shining and it was warm! Throw in the most beautiful family and you have all the makings for the perfect photo session. Here’s a little sneak peek of the “B” family…

Alyssa

Brrrrrrr! What a chilly day at the park! Alyssa was such a trooper – she braved the shivering cold and gave me the cutest smiles! She even entertained us with a few songs 🙂

Alek

Little Alek was putty in my hands! He slept through the first hour of shooting whithout so much as a peep. He even let me try on several different hats – what a trooper! He’s a little sneak peek from his session…

Avery

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I first photographed little Avery! (She is the newborn featured at the top of my blog page). We had fun walking through the park on what may be the last warm day of the year. At first, she was so affraid of my camera – she would literally scream at it! She finally warmed up and gave me lots of smiles. Here’s a little sneak peek…

Love this serious look – just adorable!

Nolan & Taylor

I can’t believe how much they have grown this past year! With all of my client sessions stacking up, I thought I had better start taking my Christmas photos while I had the chance. Scott and I took the boys downtown for a quick mini shoot. Once the leaves turn, we’ll do a mini at Elmwood too. Here’s a little sampling of downtown…

Kaileen

I had the joy of meeting and photographing one of the prettiest girls I have ever met! I was in awe of her beauty and grace throughout her session. Her equally beautiful friend showed up to join in a few photos. What a pair! Here’s a little sneak peek from yesterday’s session…
