Introducing Olivia

Baby Olivia came to my studio a little older than most of my newborns, but she was still a dream to photograph!  I love the sweet little bows and wraps that her mom brought along. This baby girl’s huge eyes and sweet cheeks will melt your heart!

Olivia and her family hold a special place in my heart.  I first met her mom and dad in December 2013 on what was probably the worst day of their lives.  They were saying hello and goodbye to Olivia’s older brother William and I was there with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep to capture his only portraits.  I can’t even begin to explain how wonderful it is to work with a family after a devastating loss like theirs and to capture memories of happier times.  I am so honored to work with this family of four, with one baby to hold in their arms and one that they will always hold in their hearts!

Introducing Owen

I’ve been busy photographing many babies in 2015!  The latest is baby Owen, a sweet little guy whose sister, Addison, I’ve been photographing for the last few years.  I’m excited that Owen’s mom and dad decided to sign up for a baby package, which means I’ll get to photograph this adorable face two more times this year!

The D Family

I’ve know Jill for a long time – ever since she first hired me as a babysitter for her small kids when I was in high school!  Since then, her kids have grown up, some have graduated, moved away, gone to college, gotten engaged.  It was so fun capturing this fun family all together.  The girls even got to have a little pampering at the studio before meeting the boys at Saint Paul’s Union Depot.  Since today is Jill’s birthday, I’ll start with this stunning portrait…

The P Family – studio photo session

The P Family was one of the sweetest families I’ve had in the studio for a family photo shoot. I love the colors that they chose to wear for their session. So fun and colorful!  They coordinate, but don’t all match exactly and they look fabulous in my bright white studio.   I can’t wait to deliver the album and prints they ordered this week.
