Elena {growing}

This photoshoot was extra fun since Elena got to come over to my house to play! Nearly two-year-old Elena was obsessed with a party hat I’d pulled out, and was willing to cooperate as long as I was willing to wear it. So at the expense of looking like a clown, I was able to get some sweet shots of this little one. Isn’t she absolutely gorgeous?!

Katherine {beauty}

Meet Katherine. My baby sister. I have many teenage memories of carting around my toddler sister as people mistook her for my own daughter. I can still see her with her baby blonde curls, chubby cheeks, and a broad smile on her face that earned her the nickname “Sunshine”. And now she’s a woman. Excuse me while I grab the tissue box.

The problem with having an older sister that’s a photographer is that you have no options when it comes to having senior photos done. The advantage is that your photos get extra time and attention. Katie and I have been dreaming up this photo shoot for awhile. So get ready for some eye candy since this girl is absolutely gorgeous (even if you’re not as bias I am), both on the outside and on the inside.

Mini Sessions {just plain fun}

I embarked on my first set of mini-sessions. Nine in all. It was a fun and totally exhausting day. And I was uber grateful that Hurricane Sandy didn’t visit until two days after the sessions were complete. As side note, everyone rocked the outfits that day- colorful, stylish, fab! So strap in, and enjoy one long blog post full of mini-session fun.

Gabriella {maternity}

Gabriella was bursting with the joy that marks the anticipation of motherhood. And even with the baby bump, she was rocking gold heels like nobody’s business. She, her husband Paul, and I had a lovely time taking photos and chatting. Gabriella is the oldest of two while Paul is the youngest of ten…talk about different family dynamics! But they are both the same in their excitement to start their own family.

R Family {love}

Pretty family + pretty field…what could be better for fall photos? How about if they have an impeccable sense of style! I love it when Mom has everyone dressed right down to last detail and accessory! Mom is a sweet spirit with an infectious laugh; Dad has a good sense of humor and happens to be a great photographer himself; and little girlie has cute cheeks and blonde hair that beg for a camera to be pointed her way.

C Family {love}

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family of four a couple of different times. A highlight for me when photographing this sweet family is getting to hang out with Sam. Their five-year-old has the vocabulary of an eighteen-year-old and a gregarious personality that I can’t get enough of. You can see from the pictures that he stole the show. And it doesn’t hurt that he has a cutie-pie for a sister and a really great mom and dad!

Schuyler {new life}

Last week I was able to spend some time with beautiful baby Schuyler. After our shoot, I asked her if she would please host a newborn clinic on how to be the perfect model. Seriously. This little girl was a dream: super snoozy and then waking up at the end to give happy looks to my camera. It didn’t hurt that her mom was sweet, laid-back, and such a help during the shoot! Schuyler’s mom is also handy with the crochet hooks; and since she loves all things beach, she made a little mermaid sack that you can see we had some fun using.

So let out all your oohs and aahs at some photos of this adorable little addition to our world.
