Normally at this time of the year, I am offering Christmas mini sessions. And this year due to a change in studio locations and things not being wrapped up quite yet, I haven’t had that opportunity.  So when one a favorite family asks for a mini session, we turn it into a full session which was wayyyy more fun than any mini session would have been. Seriously though, who wouldn’t love cookies for breakfast on a Sunday morning?!

This past week I got to meet little Augustine for the first time and spend a little time with his sweet family. I have known Hillary for at least twelve years now and I was so excited for her, Matt and Mattie to welcome their little boy into the world. Mattie is the best big sister …I mean the best. This little boy is not going to get away with anything as he grows up, nor is anything terrible every going to happen to him because his big sister is constantly by his side. I can’t wait to see their bond grow even more as they both grow up. Auggie was not a big fan of sleeping during his session and when he was awake, he definitely gave us some of the best faces for photos;)  Here are a few favorites<3

This family will always hold a special place in my heart and I am so honored to have photographed so many important milestones in their lives. I also kind of can’t believe that it was already time to photograph Spencer’s six month session! And not only was I ready for capturing six months, we snuck in some family photos and did my best to capture Madden’s quirky personality as well. Madden has become such a great big sister and she constantly makes me laugh. She is also FULL of energy and a bit exhausting. I. Love. Her.  Spencer is also beginning to develop his own personality and finds his big sister fascinating and a bit silly.

It’s almost beyond comprehension how long I’ve been photographing Liv, and that’s totally okay with me since she is adorbs and now has one of the cutest little boys on the planet!  Not to mention a little boy who’s first words were “Deb-Deb”! *Swoon* Of course Oliver was his super rambunctious self and made up his own rules for pretty much our entire session. But that’s okay, because we all know I love a good challenge… and a fun way to get all my steps in for the day!

Two years ago, I received an email inquiry for a maternity and future newborn session. Fast forward two years and we have now completed not only those two sessions, but now a second maternity and newborn session as Serena and Corey have welcomed a sweet new little boy and Kai has moved his status up to “big brother”!  While Asher resembles Kai as a baby quite a bit, his hair is definitely darker and he really seemed to enjoy his first studio session. And lucky for us, the amazingly warm summer weather even gave us the opportunity to get a few shots outside under the apple trees:)

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.

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;)

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….

When Katie and I decided on a date to schedule her family session after a ridiculously warm October, we had no idea that this would turn out to be the coldest day of the year so far!  Thankfully, this family is full of troopers and totally pulled through. Of course, we worked as quickly as possible and I couldn’t have been happier to spend this short time with them. Katie’s family is always happy and just a joy to be around. Thank you guys for making a very chilly morning so fun!

Now that we finally have power and life is returning back to normal after last week’s crazy storm, I can finally share the sneak peek of Kai’s one year session!  I have had so much fun getting to know Kai and his wonderful parents over the past year. I love how sweet and creative Serena and Corey are and there’s no doubt in my mind that Kai’s little personality fits perfectly with theirs.

Thank you guys for coming out and for making such a fantastic smash cake! Not to mention making a kid who REALLY knows how to smash his cake;)  Enjoy the preview!
