My friend recently moved away from the house that her lovely little family has called home for the last five years. The home that her twins were brought home to. The four walls that contained so much love and laughter. The place where her baby took her first wobbly steps and her oldest little boy learned to ride his bike. Before she moved, she wanted to commemorate the time that they spent in this gorgeous neighborhood that they loved, the backyard with the play set and the trees that they planted when the babies were born. The very same backyard where I photographed her maternity session a year ago when her sweet baby was still on the inside.
I love sessions that take place in and around a family’s own home – they are special in a way that no park or public place can be. They are personal and lovely. And the sense of groundedness that portraits that take place on a family’s own property gives a set of young children is just priceless.
Thanks again to this gorgeous family and congratulations on your new home – may it be filled with even more love and laughter and memories.
This mothers day, I want you to know that you are awesome.
The job of mothering never ever ends – the whistle doesn’t blow at 5:00 or 9:00 or ever, we moms are always “on” ready to help our children any time of day or night. This work we call being a mom is tough. Mentally and physically. We have borne babies in our bellies and on our hips and in our hearts. We have logged 100,000 miles to and from baseball and scouts and playdates. We have sacrificed a huge part of ourselves to them, in the name of love.
And it is that love for our children that keeps us mommies going every day.
I hope and pray that every one of my friends and clients feels extra loved this Mothers Day.
For all you do and all you are and all you mean to them, Happy Mothers Day.

These cuties have been longtime clients of mine, and good friends. I could seriously photograph them every day. I hope they are always this sweet toward each other! Their session was full of hugs and kisses and lots of laughs.Read More...
Adorable little miss M is back for her 6 month photo session! She did the girly girl thing like a rockstar! A pretty pastel tutu and pearls? Um, yes please! I just love this age – so sweet and squishy. They interact with the world around them; they are so curious about everything. Oh yeah – the best part is that six month olds don’t run away.Read More...
