I was super excited to meet little 6 month old baby girl G for her milestone sitter session. She was everything photographers love – happy, smiling, giggling and beautiful of course! She is so very loved by her two amazing parents, and had the sweetest expressions and smiles for me. Sitter sessions can be anytime between 6 months and 8 months – but basically are when the baby is sitting up unassisted but not yet pulling up on things into a standing position. This allows me to photograph them in so many adorable ways, the best of which are sitting up smiling huge at me! Her session fell right during cherry blossom season (which was brutal this year) so we popped outside at the end for some blossom photos. Her little outfit was perfect for both indoor and outdoor photos, and I love all the pastels and beautiful hues we captured for her 6 month Spring milestone photos. I just love the light in my new studio, and it was perfect for their family images and some cute natural lit individual images of sweet baby G. I also was able to photograph her against the 200+ year old brick wall that is in my studio (that I love!) and she was so adorable in every image. She even got to pick an outfit (the blue one) from my studio wardrobe which was super fun to see! I just love seeing my families pick their favorite outfits and props out of my studio, and seeing the different backdrops come together into a gorgeous session makes my heart explode. I have loved getting to know this beautiful family! Enjoy baby G’s sneak peeks!

This beautiful newborn baby boy was such a doll for his newborn session. He had the most beautiful little facial features, an adorable swirl of hair, and his awesome parents even brought along his big ‘brother’ doggy friend for some photos. He slept for some photos and was awake and alert for others, which let me take some beautiful images in both setups. When babies are asleep we can pose them into the adorable squishy poses that only newborn babies enjoy, and when they’re awake and alert they can be so sweet staring with wide eyes right at you. Mom said she loved neutrals (browns, creams, grey) and dad loved bright and vibrant colors, so we did a mix of both for his photos. His session was so peaceful and serene, and I loved every image we captured. Enjoy these sneak peeks of this beautiful baby boy!

There is not much cuter than a baby turning one, and this sweet pea takes the cake with his adorableness. We met up for his final session in his baby plan to photograph this amazing milestone with his parents and big brother, and also ended with a fabulous neutral cake smash. Cake smashes can be super sweet and beautiful with whites and creams and minimal decor – so the focus stays on baby’s sweet face and his expressions. This sweet baby boy I began photographing as a tiny newborn, then again for his six month session, and now again for his first year cake smash session. We did a mix of family images in my new studio on our family couch, with the prettiest light streaming through the window. For sibling images we did most in front of the cake – because why not?! Both brothers took turns munching on cake and sharing tastes. I photographed adorable big brother R for his first year too and it’s been so fun watching them both grow up together. So much changes over the first year that baby plan photo sessions are always some of my favorites. I have loved watching this beautiful family grow and watching sweet baby M become such a funny, adorable, beautiful one year old! His mama brought the most beautiful semi-naked cake and it looked amazing with the gold and white balloons and little ‘one’ sign. Baby M was a bit unsure of the regular family photos portion of the session but as soon as the cake came out he was hooked! I loved seeing this family again and am excited to share his sneak peeks with you all! Enjoy!

I was super excited to meet little 6 month old A for his sitter session, since his beautiful mama used to be our own family babysitter for many years! I loved being able to meet this beautiful boy and see how amazing his parents are with him. Sitter sessions can be anytime between 6 months and 8 months – but basically are when the baby is sitting up unassisted but not yet pulling up on things into a standing position. This allows me to photograph them in so many adorable ways, the best of which are sitting up smiling huge at me!

This baby boy was full of personality and smiles, giggles and even a few side eyed half smirks which cracked us all up. He has beautiful big eyes and the sweetest love for his parents. Mom brought a few props from home which was awesome to incorporate at my studio and turn the session into something truly unique for baby A. I have loved getting to know this beautiful family! Enjoy baby A’s sneak peeks!

I love photographing seniors so so so much! They are always so full of life and excitement for the future, and they love having their photos taken for their senior portraits. This beautiful senior graduate had such an amazing session because she is also a phenomenal dancer! We incorporated some of her incredible dancing at the end of the session and it turned out to be my favorite parts. Catching her moves at the exact moment that would look the best was super interesting from a photography perspective, and luckily she did every move perfect so it was pretty straight forward for me. Her outfits were so cute and totally her personality, from the beautiful red cowboy boots to the gorgeous white dress, and I loved her dance jacket. Her session was a complete blend of her personality and all the things she loves most. We met up on a gorgeous fall day and used a variety of locations to highlight her personality and beauty. This young lady is so incredibly amazing on so many levels and is going to do such great things in life after graduation. Enjoy the sneak peeks of this amazing high school senior!
