These two are my Ralph Lauren models! Their mom just has a way of finding the cutest outfits for their sessions, and it’s always from RL! How cute are they???

One of my favorite clients… We always have the best conversations, and she still holds my hand as we walk every year… And to think it all started when she was 6 months old :-)! I loved this location we used this year. We found beautiful Spring blossoms, an awesome green wall, brick… I can’t […]

Mom and dad must have done some major bribing prior to our session because these kids were all smiles and cooperation! We sang together (baby shark being a big hit), walked around, and got some very gorgeous pictures! Little “S” and I share a love for yellow! I couldn’t resist this picture with her yellow […]

I can’t even with Miss L. She was 6 months the first time I took her pictures, and I’ve seen her every year after that. Her beautiful personality shining through even more with every session. This one might be my favorite so far…

This is one of my favorite ages to photograph (one year olds). I love all the personality that comes out, love the expressions, love the cute outfits… And love that I get to capture all of these things for my clients! I’ve been playing around with my black and whites, and I think I finally […]

I’m not even a mother yet (at least not to human children), but I must admit I’m always shopping for baby things. My studio’s prop section keeps growing, and I absolutely love styling my sessions! One of my clients posted a picture of her daughter wearing a baby turban, and I immediately went online to […]

The best baby turban from Amazon!

Love this family! So nice to see the kids getting bigger, especially since I’ve been photographing them since they were little babies! Well, H is only one year, so less time for him haha! Also my black and whites got a facelift, so I’ll be sharing a lot more black and white images… H is […]

It’s official, as of March 20th, it’s finally Happy Spring time!!! We are clapping hard over here, and waiting for all the flowers to bloom. After 798 days of snow and shoveling snow, and parking restrictions, 1 parking ticket, and lots of days IN, we are more than ready to head outside! Who’s with me?? […]

There won’t be a time in your child’s life they’ll change as much physically, as the first year of their lives. From the little tiny newborn, to the 3 month old baby who only wants to stare at you, to the 6 month old baby who’s full of expressions and is working on sitting without […]
