Always Unique

This little boy I can truly say I have watched grow up! I shot his pictures for the first time when he was nine days old, his mom was one of my very first clients and I am always grateful to her for taking a chance on me!

C has always had the most wonderfully unique look to him. Even as a newborn he was so fantastic with these old soul eyes that were always wide open, taking it all in.
He is also very smart! At 18 months he was telling me all the sounds that animals make as we took his pictures and once we hit outside well he was raring to go!

I'm up to the challenge!

Little Sam! This was his first time visiting me with his cute mommy and daddy for pictures. What a gorgeous little guy with those full lips and killer curls.
I'm pretty sure pictures was about the last thing Sam wanted to be doing on this beautiful Saturday, and he wanted to make sure that I knew that!

He was a character, so interesting to watch his fascination with things. The full attention he would put on whatever he wanted in his little grip. I loved how his pictures turned out because the pictures are about Sam being Sam and I think that comes out. HIs parents were wonderfully patient with the whole process and I look forward to seeing them again!

A Few of My Favorite Things

Of course two of my favorite subjects to photograph are my girls, and while I'm sure there are days when they both cringe as the camera comes out of the bag for a quick picture of them, most of the time they are good sports! I think of all the pictures I enjoy snapping it is the candid moments, when kids are being kids or parents are being parents. The looks, touches, smiles and expressions that come when no one is shouting poses for them to perform while trying to still remain "natural".

Recently I took the girls on a field trip day where they become oblivious to everything but the beauty and nature around them!

It is such a gorgeous spot it is hard to believe that something so beautiful exsists so close to us. I'm looking forward to taking some clients here and taking some pictures soon!
