All smiles – Juliana

September 30, 2011

Juliana is Avery’s little sister. And Avery is the most adorable little girl that I have been taking pictures of since she was only a few month old. I have since become close friends with her mommy and see these two girls growing up in front of my eyes.

Avery is such a ham for the camera, I love taking her pictures. And Juliana must have learned from the best because she does just as well when the focus is on her. Just look at this awesome smile!!


Happy 1st birthday Sadie!!

September 30, 2011

Cute little Miss Sadie is 1 !!! It seems like it can’t be possible … wasn’t she just born? Wow, she has gotten big, is walking all over the place and just as cute as ever!

Happy Birthday Sadie!!

I can’t believe how many of my wonderful clients are going to have a baby in October and November. It’s a baby boom and I am loving it.

Pregnancy is such an amazing thing, mornings sickness or not …. it is just a miracle. To feel a new life growing inside of you, to see the belly getting bigger and to see those little kicks make the belly jump. Seeing the mommy to be’s glowing faces …. it is just all so amazing!

Eva and Kevin are expecting their brand new baby girl in early November. They already have a 4 year old son … handsome as can be. He was proud to be posing in the pictures with his baby sister still in mommy’s belly. Too cute!

Joshua is 8 month old. We planned on taking his pictures a couple of months ago but unfortunately he was very sick. Poor thing is like my youngest son, just always sick.

We had rescheduled our session for this past Sunday and poor thing had a cold. But he was a happy camper so we went ahead with the session.

Oh boy what a sweetheart he is. Such a cute personality, handsome, huge brown eyes and all smiles. Snot or no snot… he was happy the entire time.

I had a blast with him!

I don’t think I have introduced my 3 crazy kids here … so let me do this now

Devyn is my 7 year old son. He is smart, polite, a sweetheart and a sensitive mess like me.

Then there is Luke, my (just about) 4 year old son who is funny, full of personality, silly and headstrong like his father (*cough cough*)

And last but not least there is Harry the rabbit. He will be 2 in November and is the sweetest rabbit you will ever see.

The three of them together, a bucket of popcorn and who needs TV? See for yourself

A beautiful growing family

September 6, 2011

There is baby dust in the air. Yet another little miracle is getting ready to enter this big and bright world. Instead of the typical maternity pictures, this family decided to do a family park session that includes the growing belly. We had beautiful weather for the session. Boy, I can’t wait to meet all these little ones that are about to be born!!

Big blue eyes and baby lips!

September 6, 2011

O-M-G. Nathan is such a cute kid. I can’t get over his bright blue eyes and those full, glossy baby lips. He is so photogenic. During the whole session he did not cry once … he didn’t really smile too much either, but he was just way too curious about everything that was going on. I had so much fun with this session as well as editing the pictures. Eyes like that just make it double fun 🙂

This is another one of those stories that just mean so much to me.

I photographed Wesley and Melissa’s Wedding a couple of years ago and shortly after also his sisters wedding. At that point it already felt like I was part of the family.

It is such an honor to me to be allowed to capture the most important part of a couples life .. their wedding. But if after this big event I get a call back for maternity and then even baby photos, it is just the biggest compliment I could receive.

Melissa and Wesley are expecting their brand new baby within the next few weeks. Will it be a boy or a girl? My money is on girl 🙂

Nancy used to live a few houses down the street from me. A couple of years ago she contacted me about portraits after seeing my business sign in my front yard. Not long after we did her pictures I had the honor to take her beautiful daughter Lauren’s Senior Pictures as well.

I was so excited when Nancy told me, more than a year later, that her and her new husband were expecting again. I think she scheduled her maternity session before she was even 12 weeks along 🙂

Finally, the time has come and little JT could be born any time now, I can not wait to meet him!!

My trip to Germany …

September 2, 2011

I left for my trip home in the beginning of August. I was so excited, had been looking forward to this trip for months! The thought of seeing all my friends and my family had me walking in clouds. In addition I went to photograph my good childhood friend’s wedding (see previous Blog).
While there I also took advantage of the chance to go to Paris for the day with my dear friend Simone.

The 2 1/2 weeks that I got to spend at home were wonderful. It felt like the time just flew by and I really wish I could have stayed longer. It was so good to be home.

Now I am back, ready to pick up my work again and excited to see all my wonderful clients while dwelling in the memories of my Germany Trip. I am excited to share some pictures with you.
