So I have to be a total cliche here and say, I got into photography after I had my first baby boy. We were getting our pictures done by a fabulous photographer (Artistic Images by Heather,) and I had such an amazing time coming up with fun ideas and props and outfits for all of our shoots and I thought (like every parent does), "well I am already taking so many pictures of my kid might as well get a good camera and see what I can do!" which then turned into my girlfriends at work asking me to do their kids pictures, and then it snowballed into referrals and now it's seriously my passion! But I still get no greater joy than photographing my own two boys! I make them do the silliest things but as their mama, I am allowed! I make them sit naked on a saddle just to get a cute shot of their adorable little hiney's, I make them sit in buckets with silly hats, and so far my worst (but favorite picture yet) is making my oldest stand in his undies in the middle of the street, in a cape and mask all while cars, bikers and runners pass by laughing and giving me crazy eye. Yes. I am that mother. And my kids will never forgive me for showing these pictures to everyone when they are in high school and they will probably try to burn or bury or hide all of this evidence :-) But these pictures capture this time in their lives that I will never get back. These pictures show a time when my kids LOVED standing in rain boots and their underware and a super hero cape. They show innocence, and fun and laughter and the future. I like to believe (just like all parents) that my boys will change the world for the better someday, that they will be the ones in history books making a difference and the whole world will know their names. I know they will be those boys, and when I have my proud mama moment and look back at these pictures of them playing around in their tighty whitey's and capes I will tell them "I knew it the whole time."



The {V} Family

This family is just stunning and such a joy to work with! These two parents have some seriously gorgeous kiddos! Their youngest, Emily is very lucky to have two older brothers on her side because she is headed straight for a million dollar modeling contract! She worked that camera and was such a natural! It was such a fun shoot and I am excited to share these images!

Elise {Newborn}

Little Miss Elise was SUCH a dream to photograph! I showed up to their house for more of a lifestyle shoot and Elise was already asleep and she only woke up to eat and squirm for a tiny bit. Big brother Benjamin is such a love with her already saying her name, he loves to hold her and he will be her protector for life, I can already tell :-)

Welcome to the world sweet sweet Elise! I cannot wait to watch you grow up!

Lorelei is ONE!!!

How adorable is Miss Lorelei?!!! I love love love when I get to watch my newbies have their big first birthday's and I am just amazed at this little girl! She is so beautiful and fun and has the most amazing smile! I loved every second of my time with her.
