Kaya and Chloe

April 10, 2009

These sisters were just so sweet.  I love their little matching dresses!  I love this first one of Kaya-isn’t she so stunning?  And look at how smiley that baby is!

I was lucky enough to get to photograph another really fabulous photographer today, Julia Vandenoever.  She is due with a baby boy in just a few weeks!  Her daughter was just one of the cutest little girls I have ever seen-I love those pigtails!  It is always a little hard to photograph another photographer.  We all have such different styles-and of course they will see any little things that I miss.  But it is fun, and of course we always take photos of each other, which means that every once in awhile, I actually get a photo of myself.   My friend Janett did some 20 week photos of me last week.  I had to try to look like my belly was big!  I can’t wait to see what Julia takes of me in a few months.





Ty-1 year

How adorable is this little boy?  I just loved every photo from this session.  I have not updated the blog in quite awhile, so expect a ton of blog posts coming in the next week or so as I crack down on editing!








Don’t use hair gel

March 5, 2009

if your son does not have short hair. Even if you really want to get that spikey-hair-bad-kid kind of look.  It just doesn’t work.  Instead, you will end up with a little boy who looks more like Brad Pitt in the 80’s with a really bad hair cut.    So, if you are like me, and you really want to put hair gel in your four year old’s hair, just don’t.  Try to find a friend with a little girl and give her some braids.


Oh, and no matter how hard you try, just come to terms with the fact that little boys can not keep their faces clean, or free of a ton of scratches.  So, remember ahead of time that you will be spending a lot of time in photoshop trying to get all the dirt off.  Even though you swear you wiped his face a split second before you took the picture.

But then you remember how you have the best kid in the whole wide world, and how much you love his dirty little face and his big eyes.  And then you will start wishing you had more time to take photos of him, and you will be happy for every minute you have had.

Isabelle-6 months

March 5, 2009

I can not believe Isabelle is 6 months old already!  It seems like just a few weeks ago that I was photographing her just newborn.  She is just so gorgeous-look at those eyes!  She was such a little trooper on a very cold morning:)




And here is my favorite of her as a newborn.  Click here to see a few more of this beautiful little baby 6 months ago…So sweet!

I *love* these  because they show what I love doing so well.  Maggie, who came along on two sessions this weekend, got these great shots.  The first is of me holding Randell while his mom was busy.  The next two are of the adorable little Sophia, who enjoyed looking at the display screen.  For anyone wondering, I shoot with a D300 and tend to mostly use my 50mm 1.8 lens (great for babies). Oh, and I am actually three months pregnant in these shots, so expect to see me much bigger as the summer draws near…
