Meet this special set of twins, or really, best friends, who while distinct in their tastes, are still so close.    While growing, maturing, and becoming more independent, they still love to play together.  It was really fun to see their twin bond, and spend time with them in their very cool backyard.

This is another session I’ve done at home.  A place comfortable to the family, easy, beautiful, and significant.  And, a place where the children love to play.

Thank you for a beautiful session.  I really enjoyed my morning with you.  You all are so sweet, polite, and smart!

I was so pleased to meet this wonderful family last week.  It was such an easy and delightful morning at their home.  For them, it was time to update their family photos.  For me, it was a chance to be encouraged-  a family of 3 cheerful, mature, and easy going children.  I told my husband when I returned, I hope that in 5 years, we’ll have such great kids!

We were connected through our children’s school auction, so it was an even more special morning.  It’s always great to meet and work with families who share my love for our school and for giving back to that community.

Today we celebrate our freedom!

Thank you to all the brave men and women and their incredible families who daily fight and sacrifice for us all.

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
God bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home
God bless America, My home sweet home.
Phoebe July 4 Happy Independence Day!

This baby girl is their number one!  She is so delightful and happy and excited.  She laughs, claps, and smiles, smiles, smiles, smiles, and smiles….  so lovely!

What fun we had at the Bishop’s Garden at the Cathedral.  It was a wonderful evening with warm sun, beautiful flowers, and quality family time.  I love when families come together for a happy hour of play and togetherness, and I also love getting beautiful pictures of them that they’ll cherish forever.

Happy first birthday, little one, and keep on smiling.  You’re so sweet!

What’s better than taking pictures for a sweet, friendly, and beautiful family?  Taking their pictures with their new puppy, of course.  Add an adorable dog to the mix, and everything gets better, right?

We had a beautiful early morning together last weekend, and I’m thrilled with the results.  What a beautiful family!

It was a real pleasure to meet up with all of you last weekend.  You kids are awesome-so polite, sweet, and kind!  Enjoy your precious dog and have a great summer!

This baby girl is full of wonder and curiosity.  It was a delight for us to watch her practice her walking, climb hills, explore her yard, and pop bubbles.  Everything is so new and interesting and magical to her.  It’s really amazing to see!

I love 1 year olds, I love meeting awesome families, and I love sharing their beautiful pictures of them.  Because this is a time they’ll always treasure.

Thank you guys!  It was a real pleasure to meet you all, especially your little girl.

Such beautiful children!  My family and I love these special friends so much.  We love them for their playfulness, kindness, and creativity. We love them for their faithfulness, consistency, and care.

We love them because they are so loving towards us.

We love them for the inner beauties of their hearts, but what’s fun about my job, is that I get to also see how beautiful they are on the outside.  I get to show people how beautiful they are and how the world sees and appreciates them too.

I love you guys.  Thanks for a wonderful evening!

It was a beautiful evening Monday at the National Cathedral’s Bishop’s Garden.  I had the pleasure of meeting these beautiful blondies and their nice parents.  We roamed the rose garden, posed in the gazebo, and explored all the twists and turns of that beautiful place.

I couldn’t be more excited about how these images turned out.  Everything came together perfectly that night- enthusiastic children in adorable outfits, a warm spring night, and a gorgeous setting.  It was just spectacular!

Thank you all for a wonderful night!  Your family is precious.

I first met this little girl last summer.  She was just a few months old, snuggling with her mama in her nursery.  Now, she’s walking, saying “up,” clapping her hands, and showing everyone she is 1.  One thing hasn’t changed, though, she’s still incredible adorable and absolutely cherished by her parents.

When talking with her mom about what she wanted out of the photo session, she said that she wanted to be in lots of pictures.  She’s typically the one snapping the shots, and it’s her turn to get in front of the camera.  I get that, and I love that.  It’s one of my priorities in every photo session- to get images with mom and dad, showing their love and care for their children.

It was a beautiful morning together and a joy for me to see this little one grow.  Thanks to you all-  your little girl is so amazing.  Enjoy!
