A Quiet Moment

One of the pleasures of summer for our family is our early evening walks. A few days ago we cut through the woods on a path and found this pretty spot. My son enjoyed the scenery for a few extra moments while the others started back on the trail...

Summer Visit

These 3 cuties are living overseas with their mom and dad for a couple of years, and are here for the summer visiting family. What a great opportunity to get some photos of big sister and brother with their new baby sis!

Peace, Baby

So happy to see my little friend 'L' again - this time for his 9 month session. His very hip Grandma was in on the action, too!

Pretty Princess

Although Communion season itself has passed, it's not too late to have your child's First Communion portrait session. This little princess came for her session recently and we had fun creating some beautiful memories of this special occasion. Isn't she adorable?

Recent Addition

Oh how I love a newborn! And this one is extra special because I have photographed his big brother quite a few times this past year. Take a peek at 9 day old Baby G and Big Brother B ( sleeping!)

Feeling Blessed...

Recently, I had the honor of meeting this wonderful family through my work with The Littlest Heroes Project. The project is a non-profit organization made up of photographers that provide complimetary photo sessions to our littlest heroes - children or young people (under the age of 21) who have serious illnesses or life altering conditions. Our mission is to provide the families with the simple pleasure of taking time out to have their family photographed, and to share their inspirational stories and photographs with the world. I am blessed to be involved with this organization and to be entrusted with this important work. If you know a family who may benefit from the services provided by The Littlest Heroes Project, applications are available through

Here is 'M', a high school student with Down Syndrome, who loves to playing (and coaching) basketball, and going for long walks with his family. His sisters and parents are just lovely...I really enjoyed our time together.

Little Boys (really!)

It's been all about the girls lately, with First Communion season upon us, so I thought it was time to give the boys some attention...

These little guys came to me all ready to play, and looking quite handsome in their spring outfits:

Princess for a Day

I think that says it all, don't you? Here is Miss S; I'll let the photos speak for themselves:


More sneak peeks from First Communion season...isn't Miss C looking pretty today?

Girls, girls, girls...

If you have been following this blog recently, you know that it is most definitely First Communion season! Seemingly all at once, a whirlwind of white dresses and pretty little girls come through the studio, and yet each girl has her own unique style and personality which makes her photographs special. Here are a few of Miss 'O' and her older sister, 'J'.

Whenever possible, I like to include meaningful items in my portraits, whether it be a special blanket for an infant session or, in this case, a beautiful set of rosary beads and a prayer book for a First Communion portrait.

Here are a few from my recent session with lovely Miss 'K' in her beautiful outfit:

Cliche, but True

Well, the old cliches are certainly true:

I first met 'J' when she was barely walking..."Time flies" and "It seems like just yesterday she was a baby." Here she is having just made her First Communion and "getting more beautiful by the day"...
