Cheers to the New Year

I'm having a hard time believing that this is the last day of 2012, but here it is. I'm not sure why as I'm getting older that time seems to be going by quicker. I always have mixed feelings at the end of a year. I am sad to let go of great memories and I so desperately want to freeze this age of my kiddos. I am enjoying their ages right now so much. On the other hand I look forward to the new beginnings and memories that a New Year represents. 2012 has been good to me in both my personal life and my work life, but I am very excited for 2013 and what it is going to bring. I know it's gonna be good!!! 

I couldn't think of a better session to end the year with than this one. Danielle is graduating in 2013. It's her year to shine!! I know that her future is bright. She is smart, beautiful, full of life and has an amazing family behind her.

So cheers to Danielle and to 2013!!!

Happy New Year!!

And we were joind for a few by her handsome brother.

the U family

I have really been lucky in the senior dept this year!
I LOVE these sessions so much!!
This one was another favorite.
I still can't believe that he is graduating in just a few short months.
 Or how much little sister has grown up.
 Oh, time just goes too fast!
Nicole, thanks for trusting me with your gorgeous kiddos.

good and sweet attracts it's equal

It was so good to meet this very sweet family.
They had been referred to me by their friends whom I have had the pleasure of photographing the past two years. Both of these families (kids included) are just as awesome as they come. So it was no surprise to me that both parents and kiddos are friends.
 I was so glad that our dates worked out and even happier that the weather held on long enough for us!!

months in the making

I have been looking forward to this session.
Well, both mom and I have been looking forward to it.
It has been planned for months. 
And it was all that I had hoped for.
Such a fun time with a super sweet and adorable family! 

Motherhood looks so good on you my friend!!


Oh he melts my heart.

a glimpse of fall

I keep saying that I have the best clients and really I believe it.
I think that we are brought together because we are a perfect fit.
They choose me.
They trust me.
And I am so glad they do.
This family is a perfect example of all of that.
I had SO much fun with them and so glad for their trust (and willingness to hike in heels).
Just a peek for was so hard to pick a few...I loved so many.


These two could not get any cuter!

 And these two are pretty darn adorable also.

I have been waiting a long time to get this family in front of my camera.
I just think they are adorable. I'm so glad that they finally joined me.
They did not disappoint!
These kiddos sure have some personality and mom has her hands full.
It was such a fun time....thanks S family!!!
