I am now offering maternity sessions as a mini session that may be added to any newborn session booking. These sessions are generally held around the 34th week. If you are interested, be sure to contact me during your second trimester to be sure your optimal time for this session will be available to you.

I have been eagerly awaiting this beautiful couple’s maternity and newborn sessions since this summer! Life is so exciting for them right now. With a baby due in just a few weeks and moving into a new home right before Christmas, they are going to be busy and worn out in January! But I am sure they will be blissfully happy! Mommy-to-be was positively radiant for her session! Both soon to be parents were wonderful to photograph and lovely to work with. I cannot wait for that sweet babe to get here!

Dear beautiful couple, I hope you love these images! Tell your friends and family members to check out the images and leave a little love on your blog post. Blog love makes me very, very happy and I like to say thank you to my clients for sharing my work. If you get 35 comments from unique visitors (with a unique email address), you can choose your favorite image for a 5×7 print on me! If you get 50 comments, it’s an 8×10!! It was such a pleasure working with you! Enjoy:)

Claudia Darrow: How sweet.What an extrodinary family!

Lina: Beautiful family, such sweet captures!

Another late night post! So happy to be sharing this session. I photographed this awesome family this summer for the first time. That session was one of my in home sessions and was a lot of fun. For this session, mom wanted to be outdoors. We planned the wardrobe and items we would use to keep the girls entertained and keep a playful atmosphere all through the shoot. It turned out perfectly! You never know how smoothly things will go when you are photographing a 1 year old and a 3 year old together. But the girls were absolutely perfect and mom and dad were so amazing with their attitude and willingness to let their joy shine. And it is hard work running after kids this age! I’m sure mom and dad were as tired as me after the shoot. But it was so much fun and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I have so many favorites from this shoot it was hard to narrow it down!!!

Mom and Dad, I hope you love these images! Tell your friends and family members to check out the images and leave a little love on your blog post.

She is one year old. Beautiful and sweet. The first time I met this little princess for her newborn photography session seems like just yesterday! She was tiny and perfect and I loved this family the first time I met and worked with them. And my how quickly they change!!! Just six months later I photographed her again at her 6 month old baby photography session. I love seeing my newborn subjects again throughout their first year and I marvel at their changes and development. I get a kick out of seeing how their little personalities are developing as they are growing. And here she is now…….the apple of her daddy’s eye and mommy’s little love:)
