Last week I was interviewed on how to take great pictures of kids by blogger Kelley from Happy Healthy Kids.

I started my photography business in 2007 and it’s fun to share some of the knowledge I’ve acquired along the way to help parents take great photos of their own kids. I hope it inspires others to get out the camera this summer to document all the special moments that take place!

We moved just a few months ago and have had the opportunity to become friends with the sweetest, most amazing family. Not only has our family been blessed to get to know them, but I was able to photograph them too. What a treat! The mom said she’d been following my work for years and has always wanted to have a session. Funny how things come full circle! Since they live so close we were able to squeeze in a mid-week session after school and before evening activities. They live on the most gorgeous street (love those charming sidewalks and old trees) and it was perfect for a special family session. I love when kids and parents can simply play in their front yard and enjoy time together while I photograph away. Thanks B family for entrusting me with your family portraits. It’s been a joy!

Ah, I love when the stars align and a session is just simply amazing! Paige is a gorgeous, smart, friendly, kind, big-hearted (and the list goes on) senior who was at such ease and rocked in front of the camera. She felt comfortable to just be herself and I think her sweet, bubbly personality shines through every image as a result. She’s so stunning and I love that she could’t be serious without cracking up, that her smile lights up the whole space around her, and that she has such a genuine spirit. While planning for our session, Paige had expressed she’d like to be photographed in a field, and it couldn’t have turned out more perfect. The lighting magically melted into a soft glow as we played in the tall grass, flowers, and around the trees. Paige’s mom was with us and seemed to have the ability to sit back and allow us to do our thing while also adding in some cool, fun ideas for our time together. I love that all were up for the adventure, were super relaxed, and just enjoyed this special time! This session was a blast to photograph and I’m beyond thrilled with the images. Best wishes to you Paige as you start senior year. Thank you for trusting me to document such a big event in your life.

I love receiving email inquiries where someone wants to surprise a loved one with a photo session. Having special family portraits (and actually being in them) is such an amazing, thoughtful gift! So what fun it was for me to plan and prepare for these grandparents’ 40th anniversary session with their whole gang as a gift from their family. Knowing they wanted a beautiful, natural setting where they could just play and be together, I set out to scope out local parks. The sunlight we got at the very end of an early summer day was just perfect. What a joy it was to photograph the kids running around with their siblings, cousins, parents, and grandparents. Thank you D family for all participating in the surprise gift, showing up in such wonderfully coordinated outfits, and being ready for anything. My kind of people! Thanks, and enjoy!

This team of ladies hosted a meeting the other day where I was able to pop in and photograph them for their head shots. And lucky us, there was a touch of sun that day so we had some warmer weather with gorgeous natural light. I love the glow the sunlight gives these portraits. They just look like people I want to work with! In fact, if your student is in need of a little academic assistance to help reach their goals, these ladies are the ones to contact. The company is called LEAP and they are locally owned and operated. If interested, visit their site at They were a joy to work with, and I know your child would love working with them too! Thanks ladies for a fun morning and for allowing your personalities to shine through in your portraits.
