A Family {love}

I met up with the growing A family and had fun playing with little Gus. His little world was full of leaves, running, and most of all dinosaurs. So I morphed into a brachiosaurus photographer, and we had a grand ol’ time.

AnaMichele {solo}

I taught a high school photography class for two years, and AnaMichele was one of my students.  She is full of passion (which spills over into her photography!), and a genuinely caring soul. Since she is a senior this year, she asked me if I would be willing to do a photo shoot…but with a twist. AnaMichele wanted something more editorial for our session. I felt like a kid taken into a toy store with a wad of money- full artistic license to play! You can see AnaMichele’s beautiful spirit and collaboration fingerprints all over these, and I’m so excited to share these pictures.

Ellie {new life}

For sweet, tiny Ellie’s first photo shoot, her mom had wanted the photos to symbolize different things about their lives: a mermaid shot for the fact that Ellie’s parents had met and married in Florida, baseball equipment since Ellie’s dad had played in the minor leagues, and a pumpkin for the season of her birth. Ellie was a little snoozy champ, and such a beauty.

G Family {love}

On a 90 degree day in October(!), I met the Jeff and Pam and their doll of a son Lucas for some family photos that Pam told me were long overdue. Lucas was a little five year old intellect with a love of dinosaurs and splashing. It was a joy to capture the beauty and love of this little family. jpl-46 Continue Reading →
