Spring Flower Child

I photographed Aven and family for the first time one week shy of exactly one year ago. It was great seeing the transformation from little baby to little girl (toddler?). She was on the move throughout the whole session, but slowed down just enough to "smell the...

Baby Doll

Baby Doll

What can I say? Is she cute or is she cute? Baby M was so easy going that we managed 3 or 4 outfit changes, lots of smiles and barely any fuss. And at the end, she declared us done by laying down on the couch and promptly falling asleep before I could even pack up my...

Andrew

Thankfully Andrew arrived just as the snow was starting melt. The weather interfered two times before I was finally able to meet with mom before his birth. He was super alert, but calm for the first half of our session and then slept peacefully the rest of the time...

The last time I saw Gabriel, he was probably no more than 4 months old. His mom Sara and I met at the Breast Feeding Center when our sons were infants. Now, more than two years later, it was nice to get reacquainted and also, to meet little sister Sofia. Like many...

Isabella & Kellen

Catching up on my last session before Thanksgiving. There were so many great images from this session that is was difficult to choose what to post here. Isabella was an enthusiastic model, and eventually, little brother Kellen warmed up too. It was great working with...

I looked up the meaning of the name Sowmya. If my sources are accurate (Wikipedia?): It stems from the Sanskrit word which means, "gentle,soft." It is one of the 108 Sanskrit names of the Hindu Goddess Durga Devi. It also stems from the Hindu word which means,...

Hipster Tyler

Hipster Tyler

I'm so excited about the results of my third session with Tyler. Mom had one traditional holiday outfit and one very hip outfit for him, which provided some nice contrast for the images. It was fun to see him with even more personality and longer hair and walking and...

Jacqueline and Mady

After an unfortunate delay due to the torrential rain a couple of weeks ago, my rescheduled session with sisters Jacqueline and Mady ended up on a beautiful autumn day with just a little chill in the the air (my favorite weather). We were even able to get away with...

Seven boys and one baby girl

Holiday mini-sessions were quite a whirlwind. It's always a little thrill to see some of the same kids from previous sessions when, at this stage of their lives, even a few months makes a huge difference in their development. Thankfully the weather cooperated, which...

Waiting for baby brother

Waiting for baby brother
