Newborn session

I’m often asked what my favorite type of photography is, and I always answer without a moment’s hesitation that it’s newborns. There’s just something about the tiny, brand-new life in front of my lens and the usually awe-filled parents that just fills my heart with joy. I’ve been around babies my whole life; as the oldest of eight kids and one of a gaggle of cousins, I can’t remember a time growing up when I didn’t have a baby around.

So when Morgan and Will reached out to schedule their newborn session for baby Warren, I was thrilled. The sessions can be grueling, to be sure; three-plus hours under bright lights and a space heater cranked up high can be tough on everyone involved. But little Warren was a real trooper, and the new mom and dad were super helpful, too. Thanks to them, I think this was one of my best sessions yet! (Will is a dentist, so he and Morgan got an adorable little tooth hat for some of the photos. Isn’t that sweet?)

Holiday Mini Session

Recently I did a holiday mini session for Hayley, her husband Ernie and her son Little Ernie. We focused on the little guy for most of the session, and you’ll totally know why once you see these pictures. He’s just too stinking cute! It was unseasonably warm outside, so we headed out right before sunset and caught some amazing lighting for the family photos, complete with Dean Martin the Labradoodle. Here are some of my favorites from the session:

Fall Family Session

I’m not one of those folks who geeks out every year when fall rolls around. Sure, I like hot cider and pretty leaves, but I’m a summer gal through and through. That being said, there’s one thing about fall that gets me every time: the photo opportunities. So I was thrilled when Natalie asked me to take photos of her beautiful family. Her husband, John, had to leave early, but Natalie and little Cece stuck around for some adorable toddler and mommy-and-me photos.
