mommy & me= empowerment

"all the comments I've been getting from your sneek peeks is such a mood builder"

That's what Beth text me after her mommy and me session with her son....These sessions...boy do I wish more moms would do them...yes..its a fabulous way to capture the relationship with your children..to see how they look at you...to see that love is absolutely wonderful...but its so much more than that...Its a time to capture you, not just as "the mom"..but you as this amazing person that some how does it all ..for you to feel gorgeous...empowered..like you're a totally beautiful, bad ass.

Julian - 11 days new

Have you ever seen a couple and just knew almost instantly that they were absolutely SO in love? Then you add in their new baby and its like that amazing love times a trillion billion? That is this family...I'm not exaggerating..its magical.

When I was taking some shots of Joelle holding Julian..he was looking up at her in complete awe..I said "He is mesmerized by you"..then Carlos jumped in and said "So am I"...I mean, cue the tears!

I have miserably failed at blogging my sessions in the past..but its a goal of mine after coming back from my maternity leave to do it after delivering every session. So here i am, now i have to be accountable! Thank you for being here and thank you to this beautiful family for letting take a peek into their new life as 3.

Fiene Twins-6 Month Lifestyle Session

When I say I love this family..I really mean it. Monica is the kindest, most gentle hearted person and is seriously such an amazing mom. Scott is such a chilled out, awesome guy that truly, TRULY loves these girls (and his little man, Drake, who couldn't make it for the photos.) These baby girls are such a gift...such a beautiful blessing...and I just wanna squeeze them! This was one of my favorite sessions to date. I love the simplicity of it all. The colors, the lighting...and obviously the 2 precious baby girls who had just turned 6 months old. Enjoy theses tiny toes and baby smiles. 

Molyneux Family- 3 becomes 4

I can't begin to tell you how much I love maternity sessions....probably some of my favorite to do...its such an exciting time for the momma to be and for the entire family! This family was absolutely beautiful and Emerson was so excited to become a big sister! The colors that Julie chose for the family to wear were perfection. Everything about these images is magic.

Lower Family

I have been so incredibly busy with editing sessions that I have totally neglected posting on my photography blog..so here goes...

I love love love this family..I have known the momma, Erin for a long time, as she was a client of mine at the salon..but Im so glad she let me photograph her sweet family again this year. Her 2 boys are seriously a total dream..incredibly sweet and really realllly cute!

McClaran Wedding

The word "Whimsical" comes to mind when I think back at this wedding. It was very intimate. The bride, Liz's, dress was absolutely gorgeous! It was a joy and pleasure to be a part of their day.

William's Rainboots

I've been dreaming of doing this session for months now...I had to search for the perfect outfit, which was suprisingly difficult to find...(really simple, size 4 baby boy rain boots are tough to locate!) I finally found the perfect coat and boots on Ebay...and then literally wait for it to rain...and of course when you want it to rain..it doesn't....But then it did...and it was magic!...I wanted to include our 2 Scottish terriers in these photos but they were not having it (maybe someday they will cooperate for a photo with him)...I also really wanted to get these photos finished before my busiest season of the year began..so without further ado..here is "William's Rainboots".

An Enchanting Mama to Be

A few weeks ago I was able to photograph my very dear friend, Valerie's, third pregancy. The dress she chose for the session, screamed "FAIRYTALE" so I wanted to try to create a bit of magic and enchantment with her images...and that didnt mean adding a tiara or fairy wings in photoshop. We woke up super early to catch the sunrise coming through the trees. I rarely do these morning sessions but I would really love to start doing them more. I feel like we captured some beautiful emotion and that sun flare in the woods...dying over it!  I am so excited for Valerie to have baby Sadie...her family of 5 will be complete....and I CANNOT wait for their family lifestyle session once baby girl is born.

Jessica + John + Baby Boy

I've been really striving to improve my photography the past 6 months..I've been taking quite a few workshops and classes. I literally learn something new everyday in this profession and I absolutely love that about it. With this session, I wanted to step out of the comfort zone I was in and stretch myself to create more dramatic shadows and a deeper more emotional, film look. I think I achieved it. This is one of my favorite sessions to date...Jessica is literally glowing with warmth and love for her baby boy and and her husband, John is beaming with the anticipation of whats to come.

Hailey

 I had the pleasure of working with Miss Hailey a few weeks ago..she was probably the most chilled out baby I've ever seen..and such a beauty....Her momma was one of my clients at the salon i used to work at...It was great to see her and get the chance to hang with her and her newest addition for a quick little session.

Miracles Sometimes Come in Pairs

Over the past year I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful girl's wedding, pregnancy announcement and recently, her maternity photos. She definitely looks amazing and fabulous with that pretty mama glow....I cannot wait for her to have her twin girls!

 

 

Sage

 

 

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to capture one of Sage's first days. His mommy and daddy are so in love with their little man. From his tiny toes to his sweet little hands, he is perfect. I feel so fortunate to get to capture these precious moments. Here are a few of his images.

Monica & Scott

You know when you see two people and think, "Man, they are perfect together."..Thats what I feel like when I see Monica & Scott. I was chosen to capture their beautiful, intimate, Winter wedding @ Traders Point Creamery in January. it was far beyond the perfect wedding. I loved getting to be a part of it.
