This is 8-day-old Bennett.  He’s sweet, adorable, and his parents are completely in love with him! It’s always such an honor to get to meet and photograph such a new little baby, and I love seeing so much pride and joy on the faces of parents as well.  I get to take Bennett’s mid-year photos too, so I can’t wait to see how much he changes in a few months!

I had a great time photographing my friends, the Horsmans, on this lovely fall day.  They are each the perfect mix of sweetness and spunk, and the girls are so great with their little brother.  Cute kids, fall leaves, golden sunlight…what could be better?

I recently rearranged my tiny studio to allow for some very simple, indoor family portraits.  One-month-old Amon, his two-year-old brother Will and their parents got to be the first to try it out.  It was a cloudy, December morning, but there was still plenty of natural light coming in through the big window.  Will loves firetrucks, so I’m glad I had one on hand for him to play with, (and keep him still just long enough for some quick photos)!

I met up with my friends, the Davis family, on one of the last days with some color left in November.  It was a bit chilly, but the late-afternoon light and the golden leaves surrounded us in a nice, warm glow.

Here’s another blast from the “past” – last year’s shoot with one of my favorite families, the Toelkes.  I first photographed them back in 2010, and I was excited to see how much the boys had changed since then.  As you can see, they are still as adorable as ever.  They are also a ton of fun – silly, rambunctious, and dirty the minute we stepped outside.  You can tell these brothers really enjoy each other, you know, most of the time!
