The weather has warmed up early this year and scheduling is already in full swing! If you haven’t booked your session yet, I recommend booking soon especially if you are looking to reserve a fall session. I hate having to turn clients away once my schedule is full! My favorite time of year for family sessions is June through the first week of September. The weather is warm, the colors are beautiful and everything is in full bloom. Over the course of those 3 months, there is a progression of colors and flowers that emerge making each session unique. This amazing session was photographed last August and the late summer flowers of yellow and purple never disappoint. Also, if you are a little adventurous, creek sessions are a must! The texture of the rocks and water make for a stunning gallery of images. If you are considering a session, go ahead and click the “contact” link at the top of the page, let me know what type of session you are interested in and I will send you all of my session and pricing info! I look forward to hearing from you!

It was such a joy to photograph Fern and Daniel’s maternity session. There is no doubt that they will be amazing parents. Fern was such a glowing and gorgeous mommy-to-be. I am so excited for them! In creating these beautiful images, my hope is that they will be able to remember this amazing and exciting time in their lives. The memories of waiting for their very first baby girl and all of the nervousness and excitement they had.

I have been on the hunt for new and interesting locations for my family photo sessions. I recently found this gorgeous creek bed and this lovely family was so kind to allow me to photograph them here. Its a little bit messy, but I LOVE the texture that the gravel, water and grasses add to these gorgeous family images. It definitely is a stunner of a location and I can’t wait to share it with you!!

I loved the gorgeous colors of this little one’s first birthday session. Cake smash sessions are such a fun way to mark an important milestone and create images that are different than a typical photography session. Do you have little one with a birthday coming up? I would love to create a gorgeous cake smash session just for you! In the meantime, take a peek at this beautiful session…
