I have enjoyed photographing many high school seniors over the past ten years.  I always love the excitement, joy, enthusiasm, and passion that high school seniors exude during their portrait sessions.  They truly are at a launching point as they are about to pursue their dreams and begin their adult lives; and I feel lucky that I get to capture a unique milestone that will always be remembered.

I’m excited to focus more of my energy on high school senior portraits and creating a fun, unique experience during their shoot.  I just finished designing a High School Senior Portrait Guide and have included a few screen shots below.  I’m looking forward to sharing more soon!

During newborn portrait sessions, I find my focus shifting as I strive to create timeless, beautiful images that will still be stunning years from now.  My favorite images are the genuine, unposed moments when the new parents snuggle and dote on their new baby.  New babies always are happier when they are being held close by mom or dad, rather than being forced into whatever is the current, popular, newborn pose.  I find myself creating the images that I would want of my own children and my own family.  I love natural, candid, genuine images that not only serve to remember the fleeting newborn weeks, but that also show the real love between family members.  Looking back at some of my newborn portrait sessions, I am drawn to these images that are natural and genuine.  I believe that these images will stand the test of time and that over the years they will become as meaningful to the tiny subjects as they are to their parents.

I had the pleasure of documenting an amazing milestone for our dear friends a few months ago while we were visiting Georgia.  These portraits were taken about a month before she was due and isn’t she just glowing?!  Baby Hudson is already a few months old now, so I thought it was finally time to share a few of my favorites from our time together.  I’m so thankful to have met your family years ago through my husband and we are so grateful to have you all in our lives.  We can’t wait to actually meet Hudson next time we are in town!

I’m thrilled to share that my work has been featured in Los Angeles edition of The Bump magazine!  It is such an honor to be included and so exciting to see images of the lovely families I’ve worked with printed in a magazine.  The Bump is a wonderful resource for moms-to-be as well as new moms.  Not only do they create a delightful, quarterly magazine but they also have a fabulous online presence with lots of helpful ideas, articles, and resources.  If you are pregnant or a new mom, I highly recommend that you check out their website for your local area.  The Bump Los Angeles can be found HERE on their website.20140625_001I am so grateful for the families that have trusted and supported me along the way in my photography journey.  I want to specifically thank the four families that gave their encouragement and permission to share these images in The Bump magazine.  I love each one of these portrait sessions and I feel like these images truly show the style and heart of my photography.20140625_00220140625_00520140625_00320140625_004
