JP + Krystal Engaged

I had a phenomenal time with this adorable couple! ¬†We didn’t let the MULTIPLE children’s birthday parties taking place at each location we intended to shoot at get in the way of us having a good time. ūüôā Their fun, free spirits will take them far in the world and I wish them nothing but love and happiness as they enter this new and exciting chapter in their lives. ¬†Congratulations JP and Krystal!

Halfway There!

It is hard to believe my little nugget is 6 months old! There is no exaggeration when others tell you to enjoy every moment for it’s gone¬†in flash. ¬†Watching him grow, learn, explore, and master new skills everyday truly emphasizes the miracle of life. ¬†As fast as time is going and as much as I miss him falling asleep on my chest during his naps, I anxiously wait for him to crawl towards me for the first time, or take his first steps with his arms stretched out. ¬†For now and always I will be there to catch him.

Happy 6 months Liam!

Stephanie and Don: Maternity Shoot Part 2

The weather was much better this time around! The snow has melted, the ground as thawed and the sun was shining. ¬†It was time for part two of my in laws Steph and Don’s maternity shoot. ¬†With just 4 weeks to go we are all anxiously waiting the arrival our their little girl Eleni. ¬†I had these visions of using an old trail in a wooded area behind my parents house where I grew up however with the beginning of warm spring weather finally here, comes with it an enormous about of TICKS! We decided not to risk getting Lyme’s Disease and improvise with the shoot in my parents back yard. ¬†Congrats to Don and Steph! We can’t wait to meet your little miracle!

My Little Nugget!

On April 6th, 2015 Chad and I welcomed our beautiful little boy Liam into the world. ¬†I was induced and labored for two days, and ended up with a 3rd degree tear, but as any new mom will tell you… it was all worth it. ¬†Every stereotypical, mushy comment parents say such as “It changes your life forever, they never thought they could love someone so much, and how they could not imagine their life without this tiny person in it” is all true. ¬†As a new mom I find myself saying those same exact phrases. ¬†Born at 8 lbs 11oz our “little” nugget has brought us so much joy. ¬†Even though Chad and I are ¬†operating on little to no sleep and have on more than one occasion looked at each other and said “Parenting is SO Hard!” When he looks up at us and smiles his tiny grin (whether it is gas or not) warms our heart and makes every diaper change, late night feeding, and random fussy/cry fest all worth it.

We have done many newborn pictures for other parents in the past so when it came time for Liam’s I wanted to do something different. ¬†I wanted it to be as natural a possible. No baskets, suitcases, funny outfits or other props. ¬†Just him in his natural state…..which right now is usually sleeping…. ¬†There was something very organic about just lying him on our bed and documenting¬†him sleep peacefully, innocently existing in this world. ¬†Quiet moments ¬†like these are when I sit back and envision¬†what his life will be like in the coming years. ¬†What kind of person will he become? ¬†How can I guide him and teach him important lessons on how to be a good, loving, honest person like my parents taught me, and Chad’s parents taught him?

It is all so wonderfully terrifying and exciting. I have never felt so ready for the task.

Winter Wonderland Maternity …Part 1

My sister in law Stephanie is a saint for what I put her through….

It is not often you find someone who actually LIKES have her picture taken and is willing to do any crazy shoot I come up with. ¬†I have put her in fields, underwater and now in 16 degree winter chills all because I had this “great idea”

I am so happy for her and my brother in law Don for finally being blessed with expecting a little girl.  The family is thrilled and I am counting down the days until I can meet my niece.  This is part one of her maternity shoot and coming soon will be part 2 that I promised her.  You look beautiful Stephanie and thank you for putting up with my crazy antics!

Best of Luck Noelle and Mike!

Jeff + Nicole

One word to describe this wedding. FUN! Jeff and Nicole are the definition of “marrying your best friend.” ¬†The two lit up the room and this will surely be one of the most memorable weddings Chad and I have done. ¬†From the impromptu first dance at an old car show to everyone at the wedding being attacked by swarms of bees, this couple is both classy and sassy and we wish them nothing but the best.

Check out this sneak peak:
