Becoming a parent transforms you.  It’s slow and subtle, and those nine months that you wait and wait, they work their magic on you slowly.  By the time you are settled in at home, trying to figure out the rhythms of a new tiny human entrusted to your care – you are in the throes […]

There are some families where their kids all emerge looking remarkably the same.  It’s so startling that you are left thinking things like “This is just a simple equation.  Amanda plus Andy looks like this. Every time.”.   That is what is happening here. Bram looks just like his sister did as a newborn, though […]

This little lady is four now.  But I will never forget her debut, it transformed Amanda and Andy so fully and subtly.  She arrived bigger than expected, in a summer so much hotter than forecasted, to parents so ready, and yet so overwhelmed too.           **We are playing a bit of catch up on the […]

You might remember little McKenna from her own newborn session.  I’m sure if you do, you aren’t surprised to see how gorgeous she has grown up to be now, as a big sister.  She has so much of her Momma in her expressions now, it’s startling.  I’m not sure she expected quite what she got […]

This little band of tow-headed siblings came tumbling out of their van with sticky fingers, a rambling story and funny smirks to share.  We let them loose and watched the magic happen.  Katie & Aaron have created such a uniquely wonderful family – the kids are exquisitely distinct in personality and yet deeply bound to […]

I’ve been photographing this family since Evan was just a little peanut of a one year old.  Each year he presents me with new exuberance and energy as he grows and gains.  It’s been a fun challenge to capture his abundant personality over the years.  And then there were two.  Little Ruby joined the family […]

I’m often able to pick out a baby’s features and correctly identify their heritage.  After shooting a couple’s wedding, I know their faces so well.  When I first laid eyes on brand-new Ben, there was no question.  I gasped.  He’s a baby version of his father in every way – even the expressions.  At least […]

There’s a calm and a peace that baby McKenna brings to her parents.  New parents are usually nervous, unsure, even a bit jittery.  But Jen and Eric were still floating on cloud nine when I stopped by to capture their baby girl’s arrival.  Jen has a serious hold on Eric’s heart – you should see […]

Last week I mentioned how Eli has grown into a bit of a bruiser.  I don’t know if these pictures show it – but this kid is solid.  You pick him up and you can’t believe how dense he is.  The pediatrician has already told my sister he’ll be bigger than his older brother.  No […]

I was editing Eli’s six-month pictures today (never mind that he’s eight months old already).  I realized I never blogged his three month shoot!  In my defense, I was having my own baby around that time.  So, might have been a tad busy.  But, I never meant to leave him overlooked, so let’s get caught […]
