Every once in a while I’m reminded what we really do as photographers. It’s not just snapping the camera to get a good picture. It’s watching the magic between loved ones unfold. It’s seeing that quiet moment and catching it at the exact second so it stands still in time forever. It’s helping families create […]

What a joy it was to spend the afternoon with this family photographing the new baby boy they welcomed into their home just a few weeks ago. It was actually a cold and snowy day, but I feel such warmth and brightness when I look at these portraits. There’s just something about this fun family […]

Can I just say how much I adore this family? I have photographed these kids multiple times and they are so sincerely sweet and fun every time! This past month when the mom contacted me it was to say that they are moving and building a new house and to ask if we could take […]
