Today I spent a few hours with this little guy and his family at their home. I photographed his mama this fall when she was anxiously awaiting his arrival. I love meeting mamas when their babies are soon expected. They are full of expectation, dreams and anticipation. In some ways, I feel like I am joining them on a small part of this journey, documenting the moments before baby comes and then soon after. Being the fly on the wall, I get to know people through the experie
My absolute favorite photo sessions are ones that take place in people's homes and ones that tell a story. Anyone who knows me well as a photographer, knows that my favorite pictures are not the perfect ones where everyone is looking at the camera with their perfect smiles, although I do plenty of those. My most memorable pictures are the ones that are less than "perfect" and rather ones that tell a story about a moment in time, a relationship or an emotion. For me, photogr
This afternoon, these two little sweethearts popped into the studio for a run through the new Winter Cabin Set I have going on this week in studio. They are just the cutest little girls and best buddies with my little people so they felt right at home all snuggled up in the winter cabin. It's so cozy on set, I could cuddle up with a book and spend a few hours. Loving this set right now!
So happy to meet this family today and their two little people. We watched the ducks and looked for snails and hopped about in the drizzly rain this morning. The leaves are all down at the creek now and it is definitely cooler but with those flat shale rocks face, the shallow creek bed and the slow moving water, it is still my favorite place to spend time when I am photographing a family. You can certainly feel that there isn't much left to fall weather or colour.
Look at this little Christmas bambino! Isn't he darling?? Some babies just look so amazing in the red and white and green that comes with Christmas. And I truly love all of the options that come this time of year for new babes. This sleepy little guy was very good for us today and I was so happy to meet him. Welcome to your family and into this wonderful world, little Vincent!
This little guy is seriously the most adorable little guy. I had the great pleasure of photographing him a month ago when he was two months old and still as sleepy as a newborn (since he was born early and spent time in the NICU). Look at him now. He is so precious and beautiful. And he is so lucky to have a mama who gushes over him like her heart is going to burst. Thanks for coming in the studio this afternoon, sweet boy.
Your entrance into this world has made your family a full family of five! (Including lovable pooch, Maddy). You are a sleepy companion to your active big sister. Little Harper was a delight to photograph. She is so sleepy and quiet, which you might not know from some of the pictures where her eyes are open. She really only popped them open a few times in short little bits. Aren't you lucky to have a sister who you can borrow clothes and jewelry from?! Sisters are such g
It's Christmas in the Studio!!! A Christmas tree and lights, mistletoe, snow, Christmas wagon, Christmas balls, glitter, reindeer and most importantly, the Christmas teepee!! Yes, that's right! It's back! It's inside or out, it doesn't really matter. It's perfect and we love it. Thanks for coming by kiddos and bringing your Christmas cheer!
A couple of weeks ago, Melanie contacted me looking for an engagement shoot. I photograph couples all the time, but encouraged her to seek out a wedding photographer, someone they could get to know and get comfortable with before the wedding so the day of the photographer would know them, know their likes/dislikes, best angles and so on. But when she told me they would be returning to and getting married in Ireland, there was a whole series of exchanges between us and seve
Babies are such miracles, aren't they? And this little guy was all the more. This handsome little boy is two months old. But you would never know it. Born very early at three pounds, he is still as tiny as a newborn and sleepy too. It is only when you look into his eyes that you can see he's older than he looks. He is positively gorgeous and I am so thankful that I got to meet him and his sweet, adoring mama who visited me at the studio yesterday. At two months, he was
