  • Thank you for stopping by! Feel free to browse through my most recent sessions and the links that will provide you with all the information you'll need to book your very own session. My approach to photographing families is so much more than simply capturing a still moment. It's preserving a feeling, a memory...you. I hope that when you look back on your images years from now, you will not only remember how your children looked, but how they sounded, how they laughed and how they lived.

    I have very limited availability for the remainder of the year. I'll be announcing Holiday Mini session dates soon so please feel free to 101,109,97,105,108,32,109,101em liame or sign up to receive email notifications so you don't miss out!

With the first day of fall now here, I’m so sad that this is my last “summer” blog post for 2016.  But man, we went out with a bang!  The moon and stars aligned for us this night.  I was slightly panicky for a split second as the sun dipped behind the mountains leaving us in full shadow (as I always am even though I know darn well this is some of the best light of the entire day!), but we were having so much fun we didn’t even wrap up until someone shouted “look at the moon!”, at which point, we ran across the road (safely) to try and catch a few more images before we lost all the light.  I must have said “ok, just ONE more about a zillion times.”  But I am so flipping glad my clients trusted me and played along.  The result was SO worth a pair of exhausted children!!

Oh how I adore this family.  There are just some people you meet in your life that after every encounter, you leave smiling.  Mom & Dad have done an incredible job with these three kiddos.  They are the most well mannered, polite and genuine children.  We have been lucky enough to spend a majority of our summer with them and my girls will miss them tremendously as they go off to separate schools this fall.  I can’t wait to help mom decorate her walls with these images of her gorgeous children!

Creative Sessions are so much flipping fun.  My Petite Sessions are wonderful for a handful of fun family images, and they allow me to meet so many more families than I otherwise could, but being able to use unique locations and spend as much time as needed to get such a fun variety of images really makes my photographer heart happy.  I adore this family.  I mean, totally and completely adore.  Lily & Landon are an absolute blast to be around and photograph…a perfect mix of sweet and sassy.  Mom is a creative genius…and aside from always coming up with the best locations and ideas for her own sessions, she is the talent behind each and every one of my stylized holiday sessions.  I count my lucky stars for her!  I could not survive November if it weren’t for her. I could go on and on about how much I loved this session, but I think frankly, I’ll let the images speak for themselves. :)

I just adore this family.  Some of the nicest kids you could hope to meet.  I was so lucky they trusted me to capture their sweetness…and that they put up with the heat and sun like total champs.  :)

I’m not sure there is any greater honor than when a client has moved away but waits until a trip home to book her family session.  I hadn’t seen Sawyer since he was just a few days old.  It’s like they grow up in the blink of an eye.  I was so happy to see this lovely family again and spend some time with their 3 amazing little men!

I say it all the time, but with every single newborn session, my breath is still taken away with how incredibly loved these babies are.  As the years tick by with my own girls and I get farther away from those new moments, I treasure the ones I spend with my newborn clients and relive my own love for my littles as I remember exactly how I felt in those first few days at home with them.  And I love knowing that as happy as these parents are today, where they think their hearts can’t be anymore full…the best is yet to come.

Ok, who wants to do this with me next?!  I was so excited to do something a little bit different with this double simplicity session.  I LOVE when parents want to capture these types of real life moments to remember their kids exactly the way they are. Having only girls, baseball games aren’t a regular occurrence in our household (unless Kennedy is routing on her beloved Red Sox), so it was awesome to get outside and play sports photographer for the evening!

I recently read an article by a photographer in Seattle about why she doesn’t pose newborns and I thought, “yes!  that’s totally me!”  As she points out “when you take a sleeping baby and lay him or her down on a bed, they all do something different.  Some curl up, some stretch out their legs (or just one leg), others will put their tiny hand up in front of their face, or give a little fist bump pose.”  Those are the moments I want to capture for my clients.  Those are the moments you’ll look back on years from now and say “they still sleep that way!”, “they still make that face!”.  I want you to remember the way your older children cuddled their new sibling, and the way they fit in your arms.  So, I don’t pose newborns.  I simply let them be the perfect creation they are.
