I met up with Sierra and her mum last week after not seeing them for far too long. See, they’re technically my cousins and we do not see each other nearly enough and there is really no excuses for that nonsense…except maybe that our lives are just always a little crazy busy.  Regardless, I was so honored that Jessica had contacted me to photograph Sierra’s senior session, and even more excited when Sierra brought her sweet pup along!  Sierra has a little bit of a shy side, so dragging out “real” smiles was a bit of a chore, but her gorgeous green eyes made it worth it;) Here are a few of my favorites….

When you find clients who come to the studio on our regular basis to update their walls with beautiful photos, it completely warms your heart. I love knowing that these families trust me with their whole heart to capture all the fleeting little moments in their lives. And a huge bonus is getting to know their sweet littles and witnessing all the growing of their little families. Heather and Nick are no exception to this! I first met this family when I photographed Maddox’ big brother, Easton as a newborn….and now we’ve experience double the newborn sessions, double 6 months and now double one year sessions!! The boys definitely make me work during the sessions as they are often quite serious, so the few little smiles and smirks we manage are the ones I cherish (and not just because I know how exhausting that was, lol). It’s a good thing they’re cute;) Of course, Maddox’ one year session was no different. He was a little tired, but he slowly came around. Although, he definitely wasn’t a huge fan of the cake. No worries, that just meant mom and dad got to take some home for themselves!!

It’s always so much fun to explore one of my favorite places to shoot with seniors. Senior year is so exciting and I feel like senior photos are the first big milestone where it actually kicks in for a student that this is their last year of high school.  I have gotten to know Maegan in short little spurts over the past year or two as she plays field hockey with one of my girls, and I could not be happier that Mak can count her on her list of friends. Maegan has a fantastic outgoing personality and embraces little moments to get just a little silly. (Im sure she gets all that from her mom…right, Amy?!) She is the kind of person that just makes you feel good to be around. She also has this great guy in her life who was the perfect assistant for me throughout the session. Not only did he hold my reflector when needed and pull the wagon filled with all our stuff…he did not complain once when he needed to be in a few shots. He also earned himself a great new nickname in the process;)

So Amy, Maegan and Devon (Voopie), thank you for a fantastic session. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

It’s been two years since this family was last on the blog. And in that time Ben and Bethany managed to add another sweet little girl to their bunch!  Miss Julia is so full of curiosity and smiles and fits perfectly with her siblings. We had so much fun exploring the garden at Pineland Farms and the kids were all troopers as we searched for bits of shade and enjoyed a little refreshing sprinkle from the gorgeous fountain. I’ve definitely said it before, but it is worth saying again, Ben and Bethany have the sweetest little family and are always such a joy to be around. Thanks for another fun session guys!

Just two days ago this sweet sweet little man celebrated his first birthday!  And sure it’s exciting when littles come into the studio and ham it up and enjoy a little cake smashing; but when you had the opportunity to shoot the maternity session AND the birth  (my favorite!)…you just feel a little more of a connection. Of course, it is even more fun when I get to see him outside of work on a fairly regular basis and truly enjoy all the quirkiness of this little bald man. On the day of his session though, Oliver was a bit tired and we really had to work to get even one smile out of him. No worried though, even without a big smile…ugh that face! I just can’t get enough of him! Oh, and he definitely could not get enough of that cake <3

Happy Birthday, Oliver!  I can’t wait to continue to watch you grow<3
