Our Team

I hear a lot of families or couples talk about how they are a team.  Even my husband and I say something along those lines every now and again.  But this family?  They are truly livin’ the team!  Meet my beautiful friend, Melanie, and her precious family.  I met her at a stage in life […]

all things in bloom

Meet Anna and Jake!  I met Anna at a baby shower and was so thankful she contacted me for photos!  I had SO much fun with the three of them (Hi Baby!!) and we seriously laughed the entire time!  These guys didn’t need to be posed or told what to do…they were just magic!  They […]

By His Grace

Meet sweet Alannah!  What an angel baby!  Can you even handle those cheeks?! What a joy it was to watch big sister stick to her side like glue.  Wherever baby was, big sis had to be. Little brother wasn’t so sure about the new edition but in his own precious way, he stole time with baby […]

bridging the gap

This beautiful family will be growing by two feet in just a short time!  It was such an honor to photograph her incredibly special shower!  Being overseas and away from your family can be so very hard at times.  Times when you could really use a hug from familiar arms or moments when emailing someone good […]

awaiting kate

When we met, nine years ago, she was certain she and her husband didn’t want to have kids.    I remember telling her things like “Well, I am glad you know exactly what you want!” and “It’s totally fine!  Not everyone wants to have kids and that is ok!” and it was.  But the years […]

so they always remember

Just as it was, back in 2001…our world stops turning on this day.  While the effects of that day are with us always, we can’t help but take a day off of the normal scheduled routine to stop all plans, and just reflect. I don’t want my kids to grow up without knowing how important […]

so...this family

sometimes i wonder if you guys, my dear readers, get sick of the sappy stories i write about my clients.  if you think i might make it all up, just to fill spaces in between photos.  well, do you know what i get sick of?  falling in love with the most amazing people all the […]

they are love

let’s talk about these people.  let’s talk about how they are probably the most loved family i have ever known.  why?  because they give love.  they are love to SO many people around the world, from the many places they have lived and the many families they have crossed paths with, that if you are […]

just a crib

almost ten years ago, we bought a crib.  at the time, it was just a bed for our baby girl that had to match the rest of the room and not kill her when she used it.  we loved that crib but at the same time, it was really just place to lay our little […]
