I met this little birthday boy when I photographed him for his holiday photos at The Little Gym . I was so excited to be able to photograph him again for his first birthday portrait session. When mom said the theme for his birthday party was going to be Sesame Street themed, I just knew that I had to incorporate that into the session somehow. To do so, I opted for my signature bright white brick backdrop and dressed it with very bright and cheerful primary colors. To icorporate the Sesame Street theme, I went with plush animals. This little boy was an absolute dream to photograph. He did not cry at all during the session. Instead, he happily played with the plush animals on the set.Read More
When my client said she wanted a session for her daughter's first birthday that was natural, I knew she had come to the right place. Don't get me wrong, I love studio birthday sessions, but if the weather permits, I always encourage my clients to choose an outdoor location of their choice.
Outdoor locations allow you to get more "mileage" out of your photos. Not only are you getting photos of your child commemorating her first birthday, but you are also getting images that capture the natural essence of your baby. These are timeless images that you can use not only for thank you cards, but to hang on your walls year round.Read More
I love when my former clients return for milestone sessions. It is such a pleasure to watch the children grow and it is an honor to be able to document that growth for their parents. I photographed this little beauty in June for her six month sitter session and when I saw her again the other day, I was amazed at how much she had grown in these last six months. It truly was such a delight to be able to photograph her again.Read More
Now that the busy Fall season has come and gone, I can finally catch up on my blogging. I photographed so many beautiful children and families this season and had so much fun getting to know the families and photographing them. I also wanted to finally share a few photos from a few recent Fall family sessions and provide some insight into family photography for those who are considering booking Spring or Summer family lifestyle portraits.Read More
Two years ago, on the eve of St Patrick's Day, I gave birth to my second daughter. In so many ways, it seems like it was yesterday that I was pregnant with her, but at the same time, I feel like I have known this precious girl my whole life. I call her my hippie baby because she always has a calm inner glow to her. She is super affectionate and spends a large part of her day hugging her sister, dog, mom, dad, grandparents or if no one else is around, her dolls will suffice. She is a peaceful soul and almost always has a smile on her face and is filled with belly laughs; but, if she is unhappy about something, she is not afraid to show it and will stand up for herself in a heartbeat, especially against big sister. She also has a way of quietly getting into mischief and has somehow figured out how to dismantle all of the child locks in the house. I could go on and on about her, but I am not one to gush about my kids, so I will just end by saying, happy birthday to my beautiful lucky charm; my heart abounds with love for you. Here are a few images from her birthday photo shoot. I am so glad we snapped these photos on the rare 57 degree day we had last week.
