I will be shooting through out the months of November and December for "holiday photos" in the home, but these dates are limited and will fill up quickly so please contact me to book those ASAP. (These sessions will not be available for delivery prior to the Holiday season, but will allow clients to have holiday photos to document their holiday decor and family traditions.)

Sneak Peak: "Brothers A & K"

I got a glimpse of my future this weekend while photographing these brothers! They are exactly one year older than my boys and I now see that I will have my hands full next year! These kids were all over the place but we had so much fun just playing at the park. "Little A" was such a ham when I would get him to sit still for a few minutes. We had a tough time getting "Little K" to participate at first...but give the this kid some goldfish crackers and you've got it made!

Sneak Peak: "Miss M" & "Mister W"

I had such a fun session with these kids! They had so many great ideas that I really didn't have to do anything but snap away with my camera. It was literally "What if I do this?" and "How about one over here?". We shot this session in their 3 acre backyard that was full of possibilities! We really could have shot all day if it weren't for the sun setting. I can't wait to shoot with them again!

Sneak Peak: "Baby G" and "Little J"

Meet this cute little brother and sister combo, "Baby G" and "Little J". These little kids were so fun and energetic! "Baby G" just celebrated her first birthday so we decided to do a fun "smash the cake" session with her. She didn't seem too thrilled with eating the cake...although I thought it was a good perk of the job! "Little J" was more excited to run around and show me all his stuff rather than actually take photos but I think we got a few keepers out of the bunch!

Sneak Peak: "Baby T"

Check out the facial expressions on this little guy! "Baby T" wasn't super happy to have me around on this morning, but he eventually warmed up a bit. This was such a cute little family and they were up for anything! I think they thought I was crazy when I said I wanted to photograph their feet but I think it ended up being one of my favorites from the whole shoot! Such cute feet, guys!

Sneak Peak: "Baby R"

I have been so busy lately that I am a little behind, so those of you waiting to see sneak peaks from this weekend...I promise they are coming soon!

I had a fun session with "Baby R" this week. She was such a precious little 3 month old. She wasn't feeling particularly smiley on this day but I think I we got some great shots of those "baby emotions" anyway! This was our first of four sessions together to complete the Milestones Package. I look forward to watching this little one group up over the course of this year. I'm sure the next session at 6 months will be such a different experience for us all! Enjoy a few sneak peaks from this session!

Just a few of my kiddos!

My kids were actually playing nicely the other night so I decided to take the opportunity to snap a few photos. Check out Kyan's tough guy tattoo! (Chasen had 4 of them but they were hidden.)
