Mr. C is 4 months old!

I can’t believe it’s been 4 months since I took this little guy’s newborn photos!  He has changed so much since then and it’s been a joy to watch him grow!  I look forward to capturing more milestones over the next year for this little cutie!

DSC_3722.jpgThe “golden hour” Is the absolute best time to photograph outdoors due to soft lighting and the beautiful orange glow of the sun low in the sky.  These mini sessions are perfect for updating your family photo, milestone ages for the kiddos, mini maternity or engagement session…the possibilities are endless!

Miss A – Newborn Session

Meet Miss A!  Just 9 days new and such a doll!  I really enjoyed taking her photos and she was such a dream baby, sleeping most of her session.  Big sister was also a joy, and you can tell from the photos that she is super proud of her new role!  Here are a few of my favorites from this session.  Enjoy!

Aften & Adrian <3

I’m having a hard time even coming up with some words on how to describe how beautiful this day was.  Everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish and I couldn’t be more happy for this sweet couple.  I am so honored that I got to capture this day for them and I wish them a lifetime of health and happiness together!

Miss P’s 6 Month Milestone Session

Miss P!!  Such a delight!   I can’t believe it’s been over 6 months since I did her newborn photos.  I wouldn’t have even recognized her!  She was just as sweet during this latest milestone session as she was when only a few days old.  I look forward to watching her grow and taking her first birthday photos in November.  Enjoy some of my favorites from her 6 month milestone session 🙂

Baby N – Newborn Session

Have I mentioned lately that newborns are my absolute favorite?  It brings me such joy to be able to capture this special time for families.

Baby N was such a pleasure to photograph!  He even decided to sleep through his entire session, which any newborn photographer will tell you is not a bad thing!  This little guy was so easy to pose and super snuggly.  I hope you enjoy his sneak peeks as much as I do!


Mommy & Me Mini Session Event 2017


I am so excited for these sessions!  The bond between a mother and child is one of the most special in the world!  If you are anything like me, you are probably always the one behind the camera and rarely ever in front of it!  Now it’s YOUR turn to be in the photos with your children!  Just in time for Mother’s Day, my goal is to give you a gift that will keep on giving to you years down the road.  No matter where in life you are, or your children are, I’m sure it’s a perfect time to capture moments.

Happy Mother’s Day to you!  (A little early, I know… but shouldn’t it be “happy Mother’s Day” every day?)
