Childhood Unplugged

These gorgeous sisters were so much fun to capture at our last photo shoot. They were playful and energetic and had a love and bond that was magical to watch. We did the shoot at their home and the girls started out with portraits and ended with play. Although this was a mini shoot, there were tons of photos I loved and editing down was a challenge! Here are my favorite shots of these sweet sisters:

Playful in Pink.

I have been lucky enough to photograph these little beauties several times since they were born. This family is beautiful, energetic and we always capture some amazing images. I love my job and feel lucky to be able to capture these moments in my clients’ lives. Here are my favorite photos from their last shoot which we did just before the holidays:

Seeing black & white

Last holiday season (I am still playing catch up on my blog posts) I photographed this sweet family of four for mom’s birthday and their holiday card. It was a quick shoot and it was the first time I had a family in all black and white clothing….great idea! The tent made for a colorful and playful background and we had a really fun shoot. Here they are!

Enchanted Garden

Sweet baby Norah and her parents were in town visiting relatives and asked me to photograph their family at a family member’s home. When I arrived I was blown away by the lush garden greens and flowers blossoming everywhere. It really was a treat to see such an enchanted garden. And Norah was sweet as could be with bright eyes and an easy temperament. It was a joy photographing this loving family and the photos are some of my favorites to date!

Little surfer girl!

Typically newborn sessions are done within the baby’s first 14 days of life. This ensures sleepiness, flexibility so they can go into those tiny tuck poses and also is the window of time before baby acne and dry skin are in full force. Well, although we slightly missed that time window (she was 3 weeks old), Jessie was definitely the exception to that rule and slept like a champ! We did the shoot at her gorgeous home near the beach where mom and dad had amazing props and a perfect setting for the shoot. I adore the photos and loved working with such a sweet little angel!

brother sister love.

Photographing newborn babies always warms my heart. This shoot was no exception because not only did I get to photograph this little bundle of joy, I got to take pictures of his big sister sharing in the excitement of having a little bro. She was so sweet with him and he was such an easy baby. Here are some of the beautiful moments we captured!

I am so lucky to have gotten to know this incredible family over the years. This was our shoot #4 and this time they had a new family member! Big brother was great with his little bro and as always, I had the best time catching up with the parents and photographing this warm family. Here are photos of this family of four:

Jump, slam dunk and smile

This was my second shoot with this loving family (here was the first). We started the shoot at their gorgeous home. The boys each took a turn posing in their rooms which lead to taking turns slam dunking the bunk bed hoop (a first for me!) I love the energy and love that these boys shared. Some of my favorite photos are the action shots we captured. We ended at the park in the park throwing leaves and then after I said goodbye the boys played on the basketball court. Such a fun shoot and so many favorite photos. Here are a few:

Tea for two.

These darling girls had a tea party all ready for our shoot in their backyard. The session was put together to document the girls together and also to celebrate Quinn’s first birthday with a cake smash! Their mom had so many perfect props to enhance the photos, check out those birthday boards she had made!! It was such a lovely day and and there were so many fun photos to choose from:
