My neighbor, Kate is expecting a baby girl! As soon as I found out I was bugging her to let me take her maternity photos. Her son is just too cute and of course he had to be in theses photos as well! We had a wonderful session and I can’t wait to meet their newest family member soon! Thank you Kate for allowing me to document this special time in your family’s life!

The Diiorio Family

The Diiorio Family was in need of a family photo session and contacted me. We took some photos at a park in their neighborhood and then I suggested taking photos at their home as well. Why? Well, you make a lot of your memories there and that’s where you can relax and just be…at home. HAHA!

Spending the day at the Diiorio home was great! I got to watch their youngest wake up from his nap all smiles and then have lunch where he was holding his bottle all by himself. The oldest had a tea party with her fancy tea set and I enjoyed listing to her read a book aloud. These are the little moments in time that don’t last forever. Soon after I finished editing the photos, their baby went from crawling to standing and soon he will be running I am sure of it!

It is an honor when I photograph a family and be witness to these little moments called life. Life is forever changing and you can’t stop these babies from growing, but you can freeze a moment in time with a few sweet images. Thank you Diioro Family for allowing me into your home to capture these moments.

This past weekend my family celebrated my Nephews 3rd Birthday! My sister Mallory and Paul did a FANTASTIC JOB! It was a Toy Story themed birthday party and little Wyatt was just so excited! So excited that he wouldn’t even take a morning nap!

Mama Mallory and Dada Paul went all out with decorating and having all sorts of fun activities for the kiddos. You can tell how much they love that boy and would do anything for him. It’s amazing how much this little guy has grown and he is such a bubbly happy boy. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the party. Wyatt your Auntie loves you to infinity and beyond!

Cami is 2!

This weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the adorable Little Miss Cami who just turned 2! We had a FUN time taking her pictures.Even though it was cold outside we got some super sweet images.I am use to photographing boys so it’s a nice change to experience having a tea party with Minnie Mouse instead of knocking down legos with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Whenever I photograph young children, I try and let the parents know it’s ok if they don’t smile and say cheese or look right at the camera. Why? Well,by because having a nephew who is 2, I realized early on that it’s more about capturing his expressions and not getting him to say cheese. It’s capturing the giggles and seeing him play with his favorite toys. I refer to these images as lifestyle images; children are going to do what they want to do. Period. Personally, I like these images better because it’s the child at play and it showcases their unique personalities. Children are like little sponges just soaking up each new experience around them. Typically, boys will always want to pick up sticks and rocks outside and fling them around. It’s a given! Girls will have their baby doll or special blanket in tote. It’s these tender moments I want to capture for my clients. Seeing a child interact with their surroundings and watching them grow in front of my lens is something special.

Children grow up so quickly and not every moment is going to be a smile or a giggle. That’s why it’s important to just sit back and watch them do what they do best; play and be children. Capturing theses Images in Play is why I love what I do.
