newborn Grace

I photographed newborn baby Grace as part of the 1 year baby plan I offer. I love photographing siblings. Violet was very sweet with her baby sister. It can be hard to keep a toddler busy while calming a newborn. This family did great though. When the newborn is the 2nd baby the session just has more confidence and ease! As the parents and I have grown to know what we are doing now! Even though we are in the studio with backdrops, props, and studio lighting I still try to strive to get those little moments that come in a relaxed session. Newborn sessions can take 2-4 hours and usually we hang out and talk while the baby eats. I have received so much great parenting advice myself from this great family. So happy for them!

One of my favs below: I turned around and got a shot of dad trying to get some shut eye while mom has her moment with the baby! The bond between this dad and daughter has always been to sweet!

Maria and Jason's backyard wedding

Maria and Jason got married on May 23, 2015 in his parent's backyard. My favorite kind of wedding because it was so intimate and laid back. The yard was transformed into a garden oasis full of flowers for a beautiful backdrop. I love Maria's simple dress and the color of the handmade shawl her mom made. After some portraits and cake we were off to Old City for some classic photos. Then dinner downtown with the family. It was a perfect day!
