Spending the afternoon playing with these three boys last weekend was a blast. Sure, they kept me on my toes running all over the front yard, but it was so much fun. I loved their energy, their friendship, and their playfulness. They are the sweetest, most kind boys and it was an honor to document […]

I love this session because we just played and played outside. Swinging on the play set, creating artwork with sidewalk chalk, catching ants, blowing bubbles, playing hopscotch, hula hooping, riding scooters, climbing trees, exploring the yard, and yes, taking the most adorable photos along the way. But above all the fun, my favorite thing about […]

What a joy it has been for me to see this family grow over the years through my viewfinder. This is my third session with this spectacular family and I have loved every minute of getting to know them. In fact, I knew mom and dad briefly in college, and who would have thought years […]

In just our short time together they climbed a tree, rode bikes, played lacrosse, jumped in the pond, ran around like crazy, and simply had a good time. Whew! It was a […]

Thank you to all my blog readers for being patient with my lack of posts this past winter. I have been away spending extra time and attention on my own family, which has been a wonderful blessing. I am grateful to all my wonderful clients (who are all moms too), friends, and family for granting […]

Some families just warm your heart. This is one of them. Big sister O is so tender and sweet to her baby brother that you simply can’t help but smile. I love how she kissed him, held him, and ran circles all around him. I know when he gets bigger they will be the best […]

I photographed this family last year in the cool spot of Clifton. This year they chose an equally fun place — Findlay Market for their photo session. I love how they select locations that are special and unique to them. It makes me happy knowing we’re not only documenting their family, but the memories they […]
