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.

Cord, your images give me pause. You have the soul of a true artist! Very beautiful. Very, very, very…

At the beach

It was so much fun spending time with this beautiful family.  We all had a great and relaxing  couple of hours  at the beach getting to know each other and enjoying a relaxed photo shoot.   There was some concern how this beautiful little girl would react to a stranger with a camera, but thanks to lollipops, all went great.   The lollipops weren’t the only thing that made the little one smile.  Mom  was not too shy to act silly and make the experience a fun one for all involved. You couldn’t ask for a more fun and photogenic family.

These are beautiful Cord!
What an awesome job you did and what a photogenic family!
Too many great ones to narrow down a favorite, though I really like the last one a lot!

Totally excellent!
