perfectly imperfect

This session was anything but perfect.
Crying babies.
Fast moving toddlers.
Stressed moms.
Lots of funny faces.
And a photographer that could NOT stop laughing.
This is real life.
The things that make me love my job.
So for those of you that fear it won't be perfect...it won't!
It never is...and that's perfect!!
These are the moments that you WILL want to remember in the passing years!!

meet sweet Levi

I can NOT tell you how much I enjoyed this session and my time with this family!
A sweet new baby, first time parents and SO much love!!
This little guy helped me to find my love again as well. ;) That is my love for newborn photography. Gasp...I know!!
You see I have a love hate relationship with these session, but I think from now on it will just be a love relationship. I am going back to my roots with these sessions. I will no longer be doing full posed newborn sessions.
I  love the lifestyle aspect of photography.
I hope that you will love it too!!!
Now meet baby Levi...



One proud Uncle.

the R family

I love when "work" doesn't feel like I'm working at all. That certainly was the case with this family. I had so much fun with them. Full of energy, laughs and big smiles. Mom's laugh is just contagious! I hope that these sweet smiles are around me for a long time to come. SO glad my brother-in-law sent them my way!

cousins & catching up with old friends

I couldn't think of a better way to end my very first mini- session date than with a great visit with old friends. Haven't seen them in many years and it sure was great to see them again. Just as sweet as I remember them. And now they have their own sweet little ones.
Loved our time together (missed you Matt)!!

the A family

I say it all the time, but one of the greatest compliments is when clients return to me to capture their memories.
These days there are SO many choices for photos and I am so grateful to be able to do what I love! 
I was so excited to see this gorgeous family again. I just love our time together. And this year was nothing different...so fun!!
Not sure what it is about this next image, but I am completely in love with it!

a sweet anniversary shoot

Meet Joe and Ashley. One of the nicest couples you will ever meet.
 I was so excited when they decided to join me for a sweet anniversary shoot.
Ashley is actually no stranger to my blog. She has been on it many times, just not the way you may think. You see, she is a wonderful florist and has been responsible for many of the gorgeous flowers in my wedding posts. ;) I'm so excited to see "her" on the blog this time joined by her sweetheart!
Happy 5 year anniversary you two...and cheers to many more!!

the C family

I absolutely loved my time with this family.
I kind of think they are awesome and just as adorable as can be.
You see mom has the task of trying to keep my little man's attention and teach him at the same time. And adorable (and energetic) John is in kinder with my little girl so I get to hang with him quite often.
Such a sweet and good family!
In love with their images...hope they are too!


Such a gorgeous couple!!
And the photo bomb!

the start of something new

This year I took the plunge and offered two dates for super mini-sessions. Well I just had my first date this past weekend and must say that it was a total success in my eyes. I had so much fun with all who joined me and got some super cute images.

First up one adorable family...loved every minute with them!!
