Anyone who truly knows me would know that when my friends and family are happy, I am truly happy. In some cases, I feel like I am happier more than they are at the time of their happiness. The sheer joy that I feel for someone else’s happiness brings me to tears at times. I know, I know I am using the word “happiness” a lot! Well, I am grateful for wonderful friends and growing families. It’s amazing to be a part of someone’s life and share in such momentous and celebratory occasions.
Each year I get to take this family’s photos and each year I think to myself how great it is to be a part of their life and experiences.
I look forward to watching little Z grow up to be such a big girl. Her eyes shine so bright when she is with her parents. There is a love there that grows and grows and I am so happy to capture that.
Thank you! Enjoy the memories.
Quite frankly, I love taking photos of children, because I envy the fact that they live carefree and have such an innocence to them.
Little Sophia Laurel(not so little anymore) came back for another photo session and I was so in awe of how much she’s grown since I have seen her last. Of course, she has great style because her momma dresses her and makes her look quite chic. I was surprised though at how much she liked to run around, explore and play with DIRT! Sophia! It’s all good, because today was a day for her to be one with nature and she was! Looking forward to many more sessions with her again.
It’s a little nerve racking when you have to do a large family portrait because you never know what to expect and how everything will ultimately turn out.
The fact that I was with some familiar faces and that everyone was so laid back and comfortable put me at ease. I am glad that I had the opportunity to work with all these individuals in the images below. It’s always great to see familiar faces and meet new people as well. Can’t forget the little cutie pie in these pictures! All the best to this awesome family.
I was so happy to see this family as I’ve watched Chloe grow up and now Max is getting big so quick also. Where does the time go?!
We had a very cold morning, but we managed to snap a few shots in hopes to finish up and warm up with some hot chocolate afterwards. I absolutely love the kids’ facial expressions.
The holidays are quickly approaching and what best to do than cozy up next to your love, have some cocoa and smell the fresh pine in the air. We have so much to be thankful for and these 2 are showing it, right here, having fun and anxiously awaiting the Holidays to celebrate life, love, family and spread good cheer.
Again, another familiar family and I am so glad they came back around as I love to see how every one has grown along the way. The kids had fun and I did too. You can see the love that this family has as it emanates. It was a huge pleasure to be a part of their evening. I look forward to another time with them again.
These two have a beautiful baby girl together and they enjoy every moment with each other, you can sense their appreciation for each other which is a wonderful feeling. It was a frigid Fall day and we snapped away what we could with a break in between for the little one to get warmed up, but we did get some images of the family together enjoying each other.
As you know, I generally work on children and family photos, but I ventured out and took on my very first wedding. I had the opportunity to photograph this wedding for two pretty awesome people. It was a beautiful day, an awesome celebration, an insanely attractive wedding party, a handsome groom and a simply stunning bride. Here’s to them! Wishing them happiness, love and laughter for many years! Christina and John you looked amazing!
