When Ashley contacted me to set up Avery’s one year session, I was a bit in disbelief that this sweet girl was already turning one. The last time I photographed her, she was less than two weeks old!  That was also in my old and cramped studio, so the opportunity to spread out in the new space and even shoot outside under the apple trees was so much fun. Miss Avery was simply perfect for her session. Even if we didn’t get much for smiles, her quirky little expressions defined her adorable personality perfectly.

The fact that I am actually writing this blog post makes me want to vomit a little. Seriously, how can my little girl already be a senior?! Our path together has not been an easy one as I had to make a lot of tough decisions when she was super little. That being said, where our family stands today is a testament to the fact that all those tough decisions were the right ones. I am so proud of Makayla and some days I just can’t believe how great she turned out;) Mak is incredibly creative, likes spending time with family and loves fiercely.

Mak had a ton of different locations picked out for her senior session – and we may get to some others in the next few weeks- but we decided to start with the beach. My youngest asked to tag along, which turned out to be the perfect solution for some natural smiles. Izzy was in the silliest of moods and upped her photobombing game throughout the session:)

I can’t say it enough…Layna was absolutely perfect for her studio newborn session. Just two years ago or so, I had the privilege of meeting her amazing parents when they welcomed one of her big brothers into the world. And lucky for me, they quickly have become some of my favorite repeat clients, so I am just beyond excited for them with the newest addition of their sweet little girl.

Connie and Erin’s wedding day was absolutely amazing!  From the perfect weather to gorgeous flowers, incredible food and a fantastic dessert table, a beautiful ceremony and an amazing coordinator, I’m not sure there was much that could’ve made the day any better. One of my favorite things about the day was that it was evident that Connie and Erin made the day entirely about themselves and their love for one another and made it a point to take some quiet moments for just the two of them before things really got underway. While Sarah and I were busy gathering detail shots, Connie and Erin peacefully walked around the country club reminding each other that this was their day and they were just going to relish every second of the day. They also opted for a first look where they read personal vows and then left us a ton of time for bridal portraits and formals….which was a great thing considering how big their bridal party was!!

Connie and Erin, it was such an honor to capture your day for you. Sarah and I had the best time and we wish you nothing but a lifetime of the happiest memory making <3

This sweet little girl came into the studio for her very first photo session yesterday, and I was so excited to meet her. I have been photographing Miss Emily’s family for so many years that I’ve lost count now! Emmi has some pretty awesome parents along with a great big sister and brother who obviously are so in love with her. And not unlike her older siblings, Emily decided to challenge me during her session as well. Not so luck for her, I am pretty patient and love a challenge;)

I’d have to say I’m pretty lucky in that I get to spend lots of time with this sweet girl. Over the past year, my family and I have gotten to know Jordan and her family quite well, and we just adore them all. It’s also a pretty good thing that I can’t have any more children, because Jordan is not the best baby to deter you from wanting another!  Not only is she stinkin’ cute, but her personality is simply amazing. She almost never cries, loves pretty much everyone and did I mention how cute she is?! And when it came to photographing her one year session, she was perfect as usual. All smiles and willing to do whatever I wanted, Jordan rocked her session. Here are just a few favorites…

This session was a bit bittersweet as my tiniest niece is already turning one!  How in the world did that happen? And who is going to make me a new niece or nephew now?! Miss Maggy is just the sweetest with cheeks for days and a couple older siblings who just adore her. My sister had big plans for this session and after her multiple requests and visions, I really hope I pulled this off for her. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how this was going to go since Nina and Tobin didn’t seem excited to be in the studio. However, it didn’t take long for them to warm up and take the studio from a shy vibe to complete chaos. So much laughing and screeching! Enjoy this little peek;)

Meet Helena. She is just the sweetest. And that’s probably because she comes from one of the sweetest families I know. She’s also the youngest of SIX, so she’s probably just laying low to she gets the rest of her siblings all figured out;)  Here are a few of my faves…

After meeting Miss Alice and her parents in the hospital, I was so excited when they decided to bring her to the studio for a full session. Most newborn photographers recommend scheduling newborn sessions within 7-14 days of birth, since there is a good chance that the baby will sleep for at least a small part of their session. Well, Alice was definitely within the right time frame, however, she insisted on being awake for every single shot;) Here are a few of my favorites from her session…

Yesterday was my first opportunity to shoot in the new space, and I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing it was!  After shooting in one fairly small room for so long, to be able to spread out and shoot in multiple set ups in a large space was so nice.

I first met William and his family when they requested hospital photos, and I was so excited that they opted for an in-studio session as well. Will’s big sister, Maddy, is the sweetest two year old and definitely loved exploring the studio and playing while I was busy with her baby brother. Maddy is super smart and loves to be helpful, while her “Willy Billy” was pretty much perfect for his entire session. Here are a few favorites from William’s session….
