I loved meeting this adorable baby boy as he is the precious new son of this amazing family. I photographed big sister here at her newborn session and then again last fall for a family session, and I loved getting to meet her new amazing brother! Sweet baby boy F was perfect in every way, and loved being cuddled and held by his amazing family. Big sister M was amazing with her little brother, and I can tell they already share a special bond. He looked so beautiful in both bold colors and soft nuetrals, so we did a mix of colors for his newborn session. I loved that mama brought some special props too (star wars!!) and included a set of angel wings she used for big sister’s newborn session as well a few years ago.I always love incorporating some items lovingly brought along from home. He is just the sweetest little babe and makes this family even more adorable! Enjoy these sneak peeks of this beautiful newborn boy!

I have been the cover family photographer for Ijamsville Living magazine for a few years now and this publishing is one of the most fun parts of my job. These families are all local to me, so we always seem to know each other through 6 degrees of separation. We usually discover that either our kids play in the same sports leagues, our houses are in the same neighborhood, or that neither of us have a green thumb. This family in particular lives on a street that I have photographed dozens of families, and I think there must not be a more fun street in the entire world. The tricky behind the scenes secret to these sessions in publishing is that they have to be photographed several months before the magazine is released. This complicates things occasionally (try making a session photographed in February look like a session in April!) but mostly in regards to outfits. I often find people are wearing skirts and tshirts when the weather would more likely call for sweaters and coats – or vice versa. This crew figured out the outfit connundrum perfectly though and created a December color scheme even though it was October. Their photos turned out gorgeous and it never tires seeing my work in print. That is always so much fun to see what images the magazine chooses to display. I have loved getting to know this beautiful family and am excited to share their sneak peeks with you all! Enjoy!

I was so happy to see these beautiful smiling faces again, after photographing both babies as newborns and doing their fall family photos as well. I love watching babies grow in front of my camera, and these two have turned into such amazing and sweet children. Big sister here is a total sunbeam with an awesome personality and lots of laughs. She has beautiful big eyes and the sweetest love for her little brother and parents. Little brother was just a tiny newborn last I saw him, and he’s turned into such a handsome and adorable toddler, with the cutest little smile and sweet playful expressions. He loved exploring and wandering around during our family photosession. We met up on my studio grounds and since it was the beginning of winter, we put on lots of warm layers and bright knits and coats. This session was a fun surprise for their mama, and I wish I could have been there to see her expression when she saw these photos for the first time! I have loved getting to know this beautiful family and am excited to share their sneak peeks with you all! Enjoy!

I was super excited to meet miss E for her first birthday, since I photographed her big brother for his first birthday a few years ago too. It’s so fun when families develop traditions of photographing all their children during the same stage of life, and the 1 year birthday is possibly the most special of all. This baby girl is full of personality and smiles, giggles and happiness. She has beautiful big eyes and the sweetest love for her big brother and parents. Since her birthday fell in the midst of winter, we did her session in her loving home. Being among her favorite spaces and toys and comfortable spots let her totally be herself. Photographing families in their home is so awesome, since you can watch them be exactly how they are and they can play and relax. I have loved getting to know this beautiful family and watching sweet big brother C become such a funny, adorable, gorgeous “big” kid! I loved seeing this family again and am excited to share her sneak peeks with you all! Enjoy!

One of the most fun parts of being a photographer is seeing my work in print. It is awesome to see my images on a computer screen, but seeing and holding them printed is such a classic and beautiful way to view them. When I have clients who return several times within a year, or refer many friends to me for photos, I love to gift them with a favorite product at the time. These little 4×6 mini albums with ribbon closures caught my eye at one of my conferences recently, and I just knew they would make beautiful gift albums.

These 3×3 mini albums are one of my most popular gifted items as well, since they are included as an early bird special for any session where a collection is purchased within the first two days of receiving your gallery. This has been such a popular item since they can be displayed on a desk, tossed in a purse, or handed out as gifts. I love these little albums so much – they’re adorable! They have a bunch of different color covers in both eurohyde and linen – so cute! Enjoy these sneak peeks of these beautiful eye candy products!
