“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the world around you —
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”

Don't grow up too fast.
Sophie is one of my dance students and I've been photographing her now for three years. Its truly a privilege when families entrust me with capturing their children growing up! I absolutely love my shoots with Sophie, especially when they involve her trusty furry friend, Bear.

Janetta and I have been talking about her family portraits forever so it was so fun to finally make it happen! I have the opportunity to go to church with this awesome family and I've always had a soft spot for them. Their family is filled with so much love and joy and it was a pleasure capturing forever photo memories for them!

Getting the WHOLE family together for a family portrait session can often be a bit crazy- making everyone's schedules match up and coordinating outfits is complicated to start. And then when the day and everyone is finally all together. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings... A bit crazy? A bit. Worth it? Absolutely. I photographed Stephanie and her little family last year and was so pleased when she gifted a session to her mom OVER Christmas. They hadn't had professional photos taken as a family since Stephanie and her brothers were little. I loved capturing everyone all together in front of my camera and am honored knowing that these images will be family treasures for generations to come!
I can't believe my little nephew is two! His mommy, Maggie, has been my best friend since childhood and I love watching her as she raises this cute little boy. After the success of last year's cake smash session, we decided to make this an annual tradition with this year's theme being Toy Story theme! Watching Coop play with his toys was so cute (especially his newly gifted Rex and Mr. Potato Head!) He has grown up so much this past year. I love his sweet spirit and see what the next year holds for him. Happy Birthday Cooper!!
