Hard to believe a whole year has passed, but it has. Seeing my friends’ family grow year after year is an amazing thing, and I’m glad I get the opportunity to shoot them. Last year, it was overcast and cold, this year we were blessed with an unseasonably warm November day and basked in the warmth of the sun for this late afternoon shoot at a local park. I’m totally thrilled with the shoot and can’t believe how big Chloe & Vivian have grown.Read more..
Five years ago I did some holiday photos for friends and, at the time neighbors Amanda, James & Kylie. The family of 3 are no longer my neighbors and no longer a family of 3. Now, the family of 5 lives a few hours away, but made the trip back to have their annual photos done at the same location for their sixth shoot, and this time Quinn is here too. Take a look back through the years to see this evolution.Read more..
Over the last few years I’ve had the pleasure of shooting Jaclyn and Ryan, from their wedding day to Christmas with their first child, Kali, then again the following year with the new family members, twins Lincoln and Logan. Time really seems to be flying because last month the boys turned one! Family and friends gathered at the house on a sunny and warm day and I was on hand to capture some memories for everyone. Jaclyn themed the event with her very own handmade sock monkeys and the boys’ aunt, Jaclyn’s own twin sister Kristie brought the floral arrangements. I’ve had the pleasure of shooting this family for so many years now that they make me feel apart of theirs.Read more..
Black Friday is traditionally for shopping, I spent mine outside on one of the most beautiful, unseasonably warm fall days shooting a great family. Last year Walter contacted me about a family shoot, a gift to his wife, with the intention of doing it in spring. Life got in the way and it was postponed until last month, for this we were rewarded with wonderful weather. Family friend Marcella actually scouted the location for me and tagged along to help out with the family’s dog, Shea, who couldn’t have been any better and in my eyes, would have been an ideal subject for Normal Rockwell. We spent a few hours shooting and I’m thrilled with the results, totally worth the wait!Read more..
Back in 2008 I started shooting a family of 3 at a local park, 2010 the family expanded to include a new member, and now, this 5th year of shooting they are proud to announce their family will be growing again, with a 3rd daughter. Here’s a look back over the years shooting this great family. Now, can we all wish James the best of luck in a few months when he’s got 4 women in his house, he needs it!Read more..
