Each little face in front of my camera this year has brought me a tremendous amount of joy and I am so excited to see those faces and new faces again this year, 2015.
To all the parents, thank you for letting me capture your children’s expressions and precious moments.
Here are just some of the cute little faces I was able to photograph this year, in no particular order.

Mecionis Family Photo Session

A new family! They were so cute!  These 3 kiddos are so sweet and funny.  The weather was especially nice this day and we were able to get some really great images.  It’s a good feeling when you like what you do and you like who you meet.  Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing you all again!

Evan’s 3rd Birthday

Happy 3rd Birthday Evan!  It’s great to see friends and watch their kids grow.  Well, this party was full of color and amazement thanks to mom.  There was cake, there was bounce time, piñata time and then it was all topped off by a little sidewalk chalk art from the artist formerly known as Daddy-O, j/k, but yeah his dad did do some Pocoyo chalk drawing.  🙂  It was a great and colorful, fun time!

Britt’s 3rd Birthday Session

It’s nice to just see a kid in action, doing what they love to do, playing, running, chasing, just plain ol’ having fun.  That’s what I got to do when I came to take Britt’s photos.  These photos are more of a representation of catching him in the moment and being able to look back at the things that he enjoyed doing as he turned the wee little age of 3.  Happy 3rd Birthday Britt!

Lucas’ 1st Birthday Photo Session

Woohoo!  Someone is turning 1!  It’s always great to be a part of a very special occasion for kids and their parents.  I am so happy that I was able to capture some awesome moments, as well as of Lucas and his parents.  It’s so great to see kids grow and be happy doing simple things as looking and playing with balloons.  It makes me want to be a kid again!  Happy Birthday Lucas!

Muto Family Photo Session

I love meeting new families and getting the opportunities to take their photos.  Just another day, another opportunity and another life event.
This turned out to be a nice evening after a very windy day, we got to take some photos throughout Walnford Park ending with a nice stroll with the pup.

Julian’s Photo Session

It was great to meet this little guy.  He was a little hesitant at first(new person and all), but then he had no problem smiling and exploring, but as we were dwindling down in time he was like, “look lady, I’ve had enough of these pictures”, which was fine, because I captured the cutest little pouty face.  After the pouty face, he was back to normal, I think he knew that it would be a cute photo to capture, sneaky little guy! 🙂  Thank you Julian for making me smile, you are adorable!  During the session I learned that he had something in common with my youngest daughter and his mom and I were able to share our experience, which was very gratifying to have someone to speak with.

Rosenthal Family Photo Session

Yet another early on photo session.  Just getting the hang of photographing everyone.  I had a great time capturing these images because it was another great and fun family.  I love to capture images of families doing their thing.  It was very hot and humid this day and the kids were troopers.

Kim and her three sons, Family Session

This was one of my sessions early on.  I started to meet some pretty awesome families and this was one of them.  Kim is so great with her sons, I loved the way they all were together.  It’s amazing how you can be from the same family, be so different and yet so alike, Robert, Gordon, and Jonathan were just that, different but very much alike.  I am extremely happy I was able to meet this family.
