Congratulations Rachel and Gary

One of my favorite things to do is photograph newborn babies! They are such tiny bundles of joy that I can’t help but smile!

Having taken photos of Rachel while she was pregnant, I was so excited to have this opportunity to photograph her first child. When I first looked at this precious little girl I was in total amazement! She is such a little cutie and I could just drink in her perfect little features from the soft skin to the tiny fingers and toes. As a first time parent,  Rachel has fallen perfectly into the role of the new mother and nurturer.  She is so attentive and ready to rush into  action if she thinks baby Stella needs anything.  It made me feel warm inside to witness this new mother  expressing her love and adoration of this little bundle of joy.

Thank you Rachel, for allowing me the opportunity to capture some images of your beautiful daughter, Stella Bea.undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

Three months old already..

Kara, Rob and their beautiful family are back once again.  It is hard to believe that 3 months have passed and their youngest son is 3 months old already.   The best part of photographing this family is the sense of adventure and fun we all have during the photo shoot. Everyone is relaxed, enjoying the setting, and just letting the kids be kids. It is a joy to capture them as they run and play to their hearts content as I quietly observe with my camera.  I can hardly think of a better way to spend my afternoon.

Hopefully you guys will enjoy the peek into a fun time at the park.



Extraordinary People…

….is what they are.

If you have ever met people that instantly seem to click and bond with you,  that seem to always make you feel like you are special for no particular reason,  that is what this family is to me.  They are warm, caring, smart, inventive,  creative , honest and real.  The list of their wonderful qualities is endless.

When I was asked to capture some images of their family, I was absolutely honored and thrilled.   Thank you,  Jo Anne and John, for giving me the opportunity to photograph your family and for all the fun along the way.

A special thank you also, to Mark, who came along as friend,  schlepper,  animal watcher and constant laugh inducer.  I love you.





Their First

I have known Rachel for a long time.  In fact, when we met she was a cute girl in high school.  Since then she has grown into a lovely young woman, married her best friend, and now their first child is on the way.   I was thrilled and honored when she asked me to capture some images of her during the pregnancy.   Here is a sampling of the images that resulted from that afternoon.

Thanks Rachel and Gary for allowing me to be a part of this special time in your lives.



A new baby boy

Maybe you will remember this beautiful family from a previous post.   Their newest addition has arrived and I am honored to have been asked to capture a few images of him and the rest of the family members as they are adjusting to a new baby.   This little guy couldn’t have been more cooperative, he was such a great sleeper and made my job so easy.   He even rewarded us with a smile, what more could one wish for.

I hope you will enjoy viewing these images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
