I was pretty nervous about my session with this family. They were visiting from Holland and I knew the children spoke no English. I had asked some fellow photographers for some tips, and it turns out, silly faces and noises are a universal language I just love the smiles I got from these kiddos– AND the ones I got from mom and dad who said they had never had their photos taken before! I’m honored they chose me to capture their first family portraits on their last weekend in the States. I had SO much fun with the B family and I hope they love these shots as much as I do
p.s. I realize most of these are portrait-oriented, but I promise there are lots of landscape-oriented photos, too! LOL.

The other day I was testing some lighting in my living room and of course my son wanted no part of being my model. He used to LOVE my camera and he’d get really excited when I stuck it in his face. Nowadays he just gives me a blank look, and turns away. I think it’s safe to say he’s “over it.” I did manage to get a couple of cute snaps and I wanted to share here. The first is a silhouette I’m going to print in a few different colors and put in his room to match the decor (is complete toy chaos considered decor??).
Anywho, I wanted to put this idea out there for anyone looking for some classic yet modern art for their home. How cute would it be to have silhouettes of all your children on the walls? Let me know if this is something that interests you
Thanks for looking!

Is there anything cuter than baby chubbs? Probably not. I had so much fun photographing Kilian’s first birthday portraits and cake smash. His eyes, his hair, those rolls– ahh! I was in one-year old heaven, even if he did try to crawl away from my camera every few seconds
Here are some of my favorite shots from Mr. Kilian’s session. I just want to squish him! In a sweet, loving way, of course Enjoy!

I love weddings. Maybe it’s because I didn’t have one of my own or maybe it’s because cake is my favorite food (it is!). In any case, I adore weddings and photographing them brings me so much joy. That’s why I had no problem booking Mike and Nicole’s big day last minute. And by last minute, I mean we had a phone consultation Thursday, the contract was signed Friday, and they became husband and wife on Saturday. I’m really happy I was able to work with them and witness the love they share. They reminded me of a pair of giddy teenagers getting ready to go on their first date without a chapperone. Cute, right? And if a super sweet, doting couple wasn’t enough, a tue American super hero even made an appearance. Pastor Mike pulled out a Superman Snuggie during the ring exchange to demonstrate that not even the Man of Steel could break the committment of a husband and wife. Needless to say, Mike and Nicole’s guests loved the comedy bit and I have to respect a man who will wear a “blanket with arms” in 100 degree heat.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from this special day. I hope you enjoy– and remember, if Mike and Nicole get 25 different people to comment on this blog post, they’ll receive a mounted 11×14 print of their choice. Thanks everyone!
The first look.
