Family Portraits | New Baby

It’s always fun to meet new families through mutual friends, especially when there’s a sweet baby involved! This family welcomed me into their home to climb on chairs, crawl up on their bed, get down on their floors, and get up close and personal for some beautiful family shots. It was a great session to finish out the year.

Thank you to all of my clients for a rewarding year of making memories! Happy holidays. See ya next year!

Family Portraits | Nature Sanctuary

I had the honor of taking this family’s wedding photos a number of years ago, and then portraits when their oldest was born. I was so excited to reunite again to shoot family photos and few 6-month photos of their youngest! We found some great spots in the early-morning secluded Ernie Miller Nature Sanctuary. Here are just a few of my favorites!

Miss M | And She’s Two

This girl. I feel like I was just bringing her home from the hospital, but last weekend we celebrated her second birthday. It’s funny to look back on how we thought she’d be our easy-going child. She’s fierce. She’s opinionated, she’s a talker, she doesn’t take “no” for an answer. She has the biggest personality! She and her sister are best friends – it’s a childhood bond I never really understood until I had two of my own, since my sister and I were twelve years apart.

Miss M loves Elmo and swimming, so we had an Elmo pool party! (Can I just say I love summer birthdays?)

It has been fun to take monthly photos of her, but as she grows, she won’t change as quickly, so I’ll concentrate on filling out her baby book rather than posting monthly. 😉

See how she’s changed from two months ago (I forgot to post last month), last year, and when she was a newborn.

Newborn Portraits | Baby Hollyn

Baby Hollyn made her appearance just about two weeks ago, and I had the privilege of meeting and photographing her last weekend! She did an amazing job – sleeping when she needed to, barely crying, giving me a couple of smiles, and being chill through the whole session. She’s one beautiful, sweet baby! Here are a few of my favorites.

Miss M | Twenty-one months

Whew. My baby is officially getting close to two. She has started putting more words together, saying things like, “Found it!” and “Where’s Sawyer?” (her friend) and, “My turn!” She likes to sit on the potty but hasn’t quite figured out what it’s for. And this spring weather has certainly reminded us how much she loves being outside. She’s tries to ride the Strider bike and has learned proper technique for riding a scooter (but still needs help, of course). She has a huge personality and gets people laughing constantly. Gosh, I sure wish time would slow down.

See how she’s changed since last month.

This was the best photo I could get, because she wouldn’t stand still for a second!
