K’s First Communion

It amazes me how time quickly passes, but what’s wonderful is the fact that we get to experience beautiful milestones during the time we have no matter how quickly it passes.  In a beautiful dress and adorning a beautiful smile, she shines bright for her parents and family to be so proud of her.   I know her day was just as wonderful as she looked on her First Communion day.  May she always be blessed!

B’s First Communion

I’ve been around for a few years to watch this little girl grow and I am probably as happy and proud of her as her family is.
She looked so beautiful in her First Communion dress and I wish her and her family nothing but blessings!

A’s Bat Mitzvah Photo Session

What a beautiful day for photos of this lovely young lady as she prepares for her Bat Mitzvah!
The dress, the day and the girl were stunning.
I loved being a part of her special day.

 

L Family Maternity Session

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.

Many blessings to this beautiful family for this well deserved LOVE that continues to grow in their life.

C&M Engagement Photo Session

These 2 are tying the knot in 2017!  Can’t wait to be a part of their special day.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.   –Corinthians 13:4-8

S Family Photo Session

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.

Eliana’s 1st Birthday Session

I absolutely love meeting new people and I am so glad I was able to meet this lovely family.  We met at a park to have Eliana’s 1st Birthday photos taken.  She’s a well-behaved, serious little girl, but I did manage to grab a few snaps of her smiling.  As we got to the cake smash part, she was ready to dive in, but once she got a feel for the cake, there was some apprehension, she wasn’t quite sure what to think of the whole thing…Was she really able to do this?  Get messy with no one telling her not to, but yet encouraging her to?  A couple of touches to the cake, some looks at her cake-filled hands and she was off and about ready to run around.
It was an absolute pleasure photographing this little one and her parents! A very beautiful family who is surely blessed.  Happy 1st Birthday Eliana, and many more!
