Lily and the Dog Days of Summer

Lemonade stands, bubbles, and sprinklers–what could remind you more of those dog days of summer?  As many of you know I had been dying all summer to do a “sprinkler” session with some willing little person.  Miss Lily volunteered!  I fell so in love with this session.  Everything from the bubbles in the air to Lily’s wet hair to her sweet smile just warm my heart.  I hope it will yours too.

Baby Brennan

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been wanting to photograph this kid since before he was born.  When I found out Heather was pregnant, I knew this kid was going to be sweet and adorable, just like his parents.  So as soon as Brennan came into the world, we booked a session for when he was about 6 months old.

Leiah

I absolutely love when my job allows me to reconnect with old friends and coworkers!  I was thrilled when Heather contacted me (we used to work together) saying that she had just had her new baby girl and would love some family portraits.  We had so much fun and it was such a privileged to meet such a sweet baby girl.

Leiah was born premature so she is just a tiny little bundle of joy.  We did these photos just a couple weeks after she was born so she was still sleepy, tiny, and precious.

Leiah’s Dad, David, is in the Marines so we had fun doing a lot of different shots with his uniform.  Amazingly, the uniform survived without any accidents!

After talking with Heather and David, they let slip that they had never had portraits done of just the two of them, not to mention as a family.  So while Grandma and Grandpa took a shift feeding Leiah, we snuck off to do just a couple pictures of them.

Just as a side note: I am a huge fan of making sure you have couple portraits taken at many stages of life.  This isn’t just because it’s what I do, but because everyone needs some photographs that show the love that you feel for each other.  It reminds us of whats important and gives us a visual reminder when times are tough.

David and Heather radiate love not just for each other but for Leiah too.  You can tell they are going to be fabulous parents!  Congrats you two!  I can’t wait to see Leiah through each stage of life grow in the loving environment you have created for her.

As a professional photographer its incredibly important to me not to forget to capture my everyday life.  Don’t get me wrong, there is a side of my brain that never stops taking pictures.  I see them EVERYWHERE and try to capture the most I can.  But there are times when I get so focused on work, bookings, editing etc, that I forget to take a breath and look around me.

Meeting Maddox

Earlier this week I was so excited and thrilled to get to meet the newest addition to a client and friend’s family.  On my way over to The Women’s Pavillion I was full of questions.  What is this little man going to be like? Does he look like his Dad?  Does he look like his Mom?  I couldn’t wait to meet this new little person.
