There is nothing more exciting, inspirational and celebration worthy than the birth of a new human! Recently, my friends Clare and Patrick asked me to photograph them at home with their new baby boy. I was thrilled by the opportunity! Clare gave birth at home and everything was so calm and cozy when I arrived a few days later. Grandparents were visiting and helping out around the house, baby was nursing well. The family dog was getting use to his new role as second most important creature in the house! And Clare and Patrick were getting snippets of sleep. Giving birth to or bringing home your new child is such a magical event, I’m so happy that I get to be a part of collecting treasured memories for this sweet family. Congratulations to all!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting up with this adorable crew for some family portraits in the park. Late summer / early fall has a special kind of magic light the adds a warm, soft glow to all portraits this time of year. I love being part of a family’s memory keeping. I get the help everyone in the family remember the good times that are shared over the years. It is such an honor and delight! Sarah, Aaron and these cuddly boys are so lucky to have each other. Thanks for a super fun portrait session y’all!

I recently had the pleasure of spending an hour with this lovely lady at Cathedral Park capturing her senior portraits. Working with high school seniors is such a delight because I get to see a personality unfold during our shoot at such an interesting time in a person’s life. High school seniors have a fantastic sense of style and humor. Especially the women of St. Mary’s Academy! We had a great time and got a wonderful collection of images that really capture this young woman’s essence.

What pure joy it is to revisit old friends. Ten years ago I photographed the wedding of these wonderful women.  This summer they invited me into their home for some family portraits with their sweet daughter. We had a great time exploring their home and garden, looking for treasures, enjoying each other’s company and capturing a fabulous series of images that perfectly illustrates the calm, connectedness and love within this family’s home.

Reconnecting with past clients and capturing a glimpse of their current lives is certainly my favorite part of working as a family portrait photographer!

I hope to see this glorious trio again soon.
