Aw…this sweet family. I’ve said it before, but it’s so true…I absolutely love seeing my returning families each year and seeing how much their little ones have grown. I first met this family in 2014, when their sweet little Reagan was turning 1. They lived further away, but her mom had a vision for their […]

A blog post! A real blog post. I’m not going to lie….it make me cringe when I look at the date of my last post. Last year was truly an amazing year in so many ways. I met so many fun, wonderful families, loved seeing my past families and their growing kids, and worked with […]

One of the things I cherish most about my journey in photography are the connections, friendships and shared experiences I’ve had with other photographers. I’m not sure if it’s because we are like-minded, or if it’s the shared passion of photography and storytelling, but some of my very favorite people, in the history of ever, […]

Today, I’m sharing some fun captures from baby Isabelle’s 3 month shoot….boy, do I adore this crew. After their shoot that morning, I went home and uploaded their images…excited to see what we’d captured, and I literally laughed out loud at so many of their images. Their energy, candid interactions, and attempts to help and […]

Oh Mika. This sweet girl. I’m not sure I can express what an absolute joy it is to photograph this girl, but I’m going to try my best. :) A few years back, I was first asked to photograph Mika and her sweet family, and love that I’ve been able to chronicle a few priceless […]

This story has been a long time in the making. It’s not all my story to tell, but I’ve been privileged enough to be invited in by this family, on a few occasions now, to capture some pretty special moments along the way. A couple of years ago, I was contacted by Julie, who only […]

This is one overdue blog post, but a family that I absolutely adore and have been so excited to share. While awaiting Baby Isabelle’s arrival, her mom contacted me to discuss scheduling a “Growing Up” series of shoots, from newborn through her first year (a first for me and can’t wait to do more), and […]

Oh, it’s been awhile. I’ve missed this blog and my chance to write and share things in this format & forum. Looking back…I really, truly can’t believe how fast time moves along – it literally boggles my mind! It was a wonderful, swimming, playing, boating, paddling-filled summer, followed by a crazy full, busy and fun […]

This is always one of my favorites times of year…when, although there is always the hustle and bustle of the holidays over the past few weeks, there is somehow permission to take a break from everything else. To push the pause button on the normal lunch making, working, carpool, practices, homework, driving, delivering, day to […]

Dear Macy… My sweet girl. I’ve been thinking back to this day, 6 years ago…your first day of Kindergarten. I can remember your excitement, your slightly nervous but giddy energy, how we shopped for your first day of school outfit, how you could hardly wait to wear those sparkly Lelli Kelly shoes. I can remember […]

capturing a little joy.
