A Snowy Winter Session


Every photographer has a bucket list. While I've shot post snow fall many times, I'd never had the opportunity to shoot during a snow storm. A week before Christmas, I finally crossed it off my list! While this dusting was by no means a storm, it fell just enough to blanket the ground and act as a perfect reflector for gorgeous light during this mother daughter session. 

The Pahls Family


Months ago, shooting at this exact location, I ran into another photographer also holding a session. I was doing my very best to make sure we were not in her way, weren't hogging any particular spot, and basically just trying to be a considerate fellow photographer. Later that night, I got an email from that photographer, who recognized me from social media. Man, I felt like a star! I could only assume it would be a matter of time before paparazzi were waiting for me outside when I went to the bus stop, just trying to pick up my kids. Famous people problems, right? Well, as of now, I'm still waiting, and my head has rightfully deflated. The best thing to come out of this chance meeting was getting to shoot Kathleen and her family, a task that she and so many other photographers put off. 

The Webdale Family


I have loved getting to know this family over the past couple of years. Our first session was back in 2014, and while their sweet little girl has gotten a bit taller and her hair a bit longer, she hasn't lost that spark that makes their images so fun! I fell more in love with that pop of purple with each image I edited. Can you believe all of these beautiful images happened in 30 minutes during a mini session?

The Beatty Family


I love social media. Although my blog sometimes gets a bit dusty, I find myself on Instagram quite often and love meeting and networking with other local photographers. When I'm not watching food videos and makeup tutorials of course... Anywho, one of those photographers Insagram introduced me to was Denise. After years of being official "Instagram Friends", she reached out to book a session for her super adorable, stylish, and devastatingly sweet family. There was a tiny window where the session could happen - one child returned home from France just days before our session, and in just days another was about to set out half way across the globe to India. Oh, and did I mention the entire family was moving to California in days as well?? Go big or go home!

Introducing Neve and Aksel

While I wouldn't call myself a birth photographer, when someone asks if you'll be part of one of the biggest days of their lives, you don't say no based on technicalities. I'm not a food critic either, but I never turn down a warm brownie! The invitation into a delivery room is an extremely flattering one, and one I received from Liese and Craig last month. In case you're unfamiliar with how the whole birthing thing works, it involves ones most private of areas on full display. Not only is it on display, it's what one might call "the main attraction". This otherwise awkward experience was perhaps made easier by my longstanding friendship with Liese -- we've been friends since we were 12 -- and I was also there for the birth of her daughter, Leila. It was such an incredible experience, witnessing a birth as a spectator vs. being the patient. I was absolutely ecstatic to be able to share in the experience again for the birth of their baby boy and baby girl. Yes, twins.
