Hugh!! Welcome to the world!

June 19, 2012 in Newborn, Slide

This little guy was such a joy to work with. He slept like a champ and he is just beautiful!!

I love this first image.  This is Hugh’s daddy’s blanket and teddy bear from when he was a baby.  I absolutely love it when clients bring something of their history to the shoot so that I can tell their own story with my images.

Congratulations Emily and Rob, on your beautiful baby boy!!

Super sweet Kylie

What a perfect little girl… and such big blue eyes.  I love the pouty ones from this session.

Baby Veronica

September 26, 2011 in Newborn, Slide

This was not an ordinary newborn session.  Little Veronica was born at just 24 weeks.  Her story is awe-inspiring to say the least.  When her parents went into the hospital, about 5 days before she was born, the nurses asked the parents if they should resuscitate her or not when she was born.  When I heard that part of the story, my heart skipped a beat or two.  Writing it brings tears to my eyes. I cannot even imagine having to hear, let alone answer such a question.  Veronica has done amazingly well.  I think she is a testament to her parents faith and prayers. I cannot do her story justice so you can read more about her and her fabulous parents and family here.

One thing that I loved about taking these photos was seeing pictures of her siblings in the house and Veronica looks just like them.  Her first pictures taken in the NICU had lots of tubes and breathing assistance so it was kind of hard to tell but by the time she reached 40 or so weeks gestational age, she looks like one of the gang.

Go, Veronica, go!!

Lemonade and Strawberries

July 29, 2011 in Children, Slide, Summer

I have been planning a shoot with this dress for ages.  It was going to going to have cowboy boots and a log cabin but I couldn’t cowboy boots that I liked.  During my search I found this quilt and basket instead and changed the whole concept.  I will be using this set up for my summer mini sessions in August.

You can find out more information about the summer mini sessions here.

Baby B! So Sweet…

This session was wonderful. Mom was very relaxed and kept giving the little guy feedings to help me keep him sleepy. Isn’t he just yummy?

Ollie & Bess

April 21, 2011 in Children, Slide

I had a great shoot with this family.  The kids were so cute and fun.  One of the girls thought we should put her pictures in a magazine… a little model in the making.  All the clothes are from Ollie & Bess, a great online store for classic, timeless kids clothes!

Abandoned Farm

April 8, 2011 in Children, Slide

After the deforestation caused by a new highway, this old abandoned farm was uncovered. We went on a little adventure through the rubble.

Down by the stream

March 29, 2010 in Children, Slide

I went on a Boy Scouts hike with my two little ones last fall. During the 4 hours of hiking with a 7 year old and a 4 year old, I found a great place for portraits. It took two more visits to pinpoint an easier way to that spot. When I did, the place that I was dreaming about was two feet under water. We had so much snow and rain this winter. I got some great shots of my little model anyway and I’m sure the water will go down as the green comes out. Soooo looking forward to spring!!
