Did you ever meet someone for the very first time, but feel like somehow you have known them forever? It was kind of like that with Karen.
From the very first phone call, I felt like I was talking to an old friend. We swapped stories about our pregnancies, our babies, and the trials and tribulations of being sleep deprived parents. I was so excited to finally meet her in person after she gave birth to her second daughter. I arrived at their home for our newborn session and met big sister Lila and her dad at the front door. It made perfect sense that Karen’s husband Matt was just as warm and easy going and she was. What a beautiful, down to earth family of four. I truly feel so lucky to have met them. (more…)
When I arrived at this family’s home, they told me right away that their sweet bundle had been awake nearly the whole night before. They were exhausted. And boy could I relate to their pain. Having just had a baby myself five months ago, the memories of those first days home from the hospital with a new baby are extremely fresh in my mind.
The sleep deprivation is brutal and it feels like it will never end. Friends, family, doctors, nurses and strangers on the street all give their advice and remind you that newborns have their days and nights backwards, and that you should sleep when baby sleeps, blah blah blah!!

This might be one of my favorite newborn sessions to date. In fact, going forward it may actually be called the-one-where-I-fell-in-love-with-having-family-dogs-at-newborn-sessions…
Just look through these photos, you’ll see what I mean. (more…)
I am quickly becoming an avid fan of newborn sessions with dogs!! This little sweatheart named Roxy almost stole the show at this photo session. With her big brown eyes and even bigger heart, she is obviously in love with the newest member of this family. Baby Finn, only 13 days old, was a perfect angel for his modeling debut. He slept the entire session amidst dog barking and licking and various poses and outfits. I can’t wait to get started on the editing!
Until then, enjoy this little sneak peek! (more…)
There is something so wonderful about capturing a family in their home just as they really are. And when there is a newborn involved, it is even more magical. These candid emotional moments are the reason I love photography, plain and simple. This session was so fun! Baby Allie was an angel and Mom and Dad were so relaxed (way more relaxed then I ever remember being when I had my first baby! ) And when I was culling images I had such a hard time choosing favorites for the sneak peek, that I knew I would have to follow up with a full blog post.
Enjoy a glimpse inside this family’s beautiful life!
