Spring is in the Air

Robin Williams said it best, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”

I have been photographing these twins since a month after they came home from the hospital. Such an honour to see them year after year!

“The roots of a family tree begin with two hearts” -Anonymous

It’s no secret how much I love photographing families.

Many times, I photograph the same families year after year. Even though the roll call for the family photo is the same- their story lines change. Their characters develop over time. Some have new . . . → Read More: “The roots of a family tree begin with two hearts” -Anonymous

Is it Ice Cream Weather Yet?

We’ve had a couple of practice runs at the Ice Cream Shop this winter. We are getting closer everyday to sugar sprinkles landing everywhere except their intended Preschooler’s target and chocolate mustaches.

I have always wanted to shoot a maternity session in the snow. . . . → Read More: One Year Ago Today- A Snowy Scene

Olivia as Holly-Go-Little

I was so excited to work with this little Starlet!

I had watched “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” recently and giggled to myself at the silly pun I had made up . . . → Read More: Olivia as Holly-Go-Little

Happy Valentine’s Day

Just wanted to wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m sorry to post so late but I was hanging out with my special Valentines all day!

Hope you did too!

I love photographing children, because no session is ever the same, and your never know what to expect. I love the fact that your tiny client will keep you running on your toes, doesn’t mind you acting super silly, and you can take a gummie bear break at any time during the session and . . . → Read More: Gracie
