It’s officially Fall, and I’m happy to start a new season with more family sessions! The leaves are starting to change, and I’m starting to get excited for Halloween, Thanksgiving….. and even Christmas! This is a magical time of year ๐Ÿ™‚

I met this cute family at Kubota Garden, and we really lucked out with this gorgeous sunny evening. The kids did fantastic, and I ended up with a ton more adorable shots that I can show you right now. But, enjoy the sneak peek… ๐Ÿ™‚


It’s raining right now as I’m sitting here putting together this blog post. But that was definitely not the case for this session! Last Saturday ended up being a lot hotter than expected! But I’m not complaining, I really am trying to just absorb all of the vitamin D while we still have it!

Alexis and her family are returning clients of mine, and as a photographer, it makes me so ecstatic to be able to work with people regularly. It’s such an honor to see their family grow, and watch the kiddos get bigger and bigger. These two little guys reminded me a lot of my boys — lots & lots of energy. One perk to photographing small kids, I get a work out while on the job ๐Ÿ˜‰




As I’m soaking up the last few days of Summer, one of my favorite things to do, is take advantage of that beautiful golden sunlight that only occurs a little before sundown. And luckily, on this mostly grey day, the sun decided to pop out for us halfway through out session!

These kiddos did amazing throughout our time shooting. Ages 1 & 3 can be tricky, but they totally rocked it. And Mom and Dad are looking fabulous as well! I had a super hard time narrowing down images to show you, so I loaded up this blog post with 18 of my favorites from this session. Hope you enjoy!



It has been FAR too long since I have updated my photography blog!! It’s one of those things I always have intentions of updating, but on the other hand, it also falls to the bottom of the totem poll when things get busy!

There are so many sessions I want to show you, and I’m going to try to slowly get them posted in the next little while!!

First up, the ‘N’ family!! We really lucked out with this beautiful Summer night. The evening glow was radiant, and little Miss Callie was so cooperative… a true photographer’s dream ๐Ÿ™‚
