There is no better gift than the gift of a memory! I’ve been giving pictures to my family for years and years as gifts and it’s one present that they never get tired of receiving. I was so happy to … Continue reading

This little one was such a cutie! She knew how to strike a pose every time. I thought the most special moment was when we did a Daddy and me series and she grabbed onto her Daddy’s leg just like I used to. Moments like these always bring me back to the root of why I’m a photographer. To capture timeless memories, and not just the ‘Hallmark’ timeless memories, the real ones, that you’ll remember your whole life. How you felt swinging on your dads legs, or when he would throw you up to the sky when you were playing.
Now the funniest moment is when we came inside to the studio to do some Holiday themed portraits and we tied this little munchkin up in Christmas lights! She was so into it, we laughed so hard the lights came unplugged. Oh what a great holiday card this series would make!
This session packed a lot of POWER behind it! Love, wonder and amazement are just a few of the key words that come to mind when I see the first portrait shown below. This little man was full of all of those elements that day, and I am so happy I captured it. His big sisters love him so much when we did our siblings series they all just tickled each other and laughed and held each other tight. I just love the ponchos’ that the girls are wearing too! Their grandmother hand knitted them just for this occasion. I love the bright colors and the bright lights! Merry Christmas to the Powers Family!
Always have to make time for my favorite little cousin clients! I have been photographing these kids since they were born and they just seem to get cuter and cuter every time we have a session. This time though, I called them the toothless wonder gang! They are growing up so fast I can’t wait till they are older and I can lay out a picture of every year to see how much they have grown. The wreaths were such a huge hit too! My fiancé made the wreaths from vines that we found hiking through Tarrywile Park. We later decorated the wreaths with silk flowers and gave them as Christmas gifts. Prop and a Present… doesn’t get much thriftier than that J
Our first Holiday Card design of the season is a big hit! We wanted to make sure we got it done in time for Hanukkah too so right after we returned from our trip to North Carolina we started booking, shooting, designing and creating some fantastic sessions. Excited to start diving into the season.
Good Golly Miss Molly! Every time I see this little wonder she just brightens me up all day! She is such a ham! It was hard to get her not to smile. Love the way the lights look in the background with her red Christmas jacket on, and what a stunning pose she did for us on the chair inside the studio. If this is any indication how my holiday sessions are going to go, then I’m feeling real good about it!

A day before the wedding in North Carolina we all went down to Pullen Park in Raliegh NC to scout locations for the wedding portraits. We invited the whole gang and suggested that the kids dress up, it would be a great opportunity to get a heads start on their Holiday Card this year. So off we went for a fun filled adventure day. We captured some great portraits of brother and sister and some even better candid shots on the carousel. It looked like so much fun I even had to jump on! Enjoy some of my favorite behind the scene images that I captured. The horses I think are my favorite, and Mr. Bo angels (the pet pig) is for sure the funniest!
We started off the 2012 Holiday Season right with this family! The kids were so excited to get their pictures taken! We played outside and captured some amazing portraits of the kids. Hung on the wall as a series these will look amazing! My favorite image from this collection has to be the sibling portrait though. They were all so relaxed and comfortable with each other it was a blessing to witness.

My little ray of sunshine was too cute to only have one post about her. This is what I love about our new P3 session packages. It allows for you to purchase 3 session credits for 1 year. You can choose when you get pictures done throughout the year. Most popular choices are Birthday, Holiday, Spring, Fall, and some special occasions such as Halloween, Valentines day or just because. The sessions are 40 min long and are photographed in studio. When you opt for our P3 portrait package you will enjoy a bundling discount for purchasing all 3 sessions credits at once.
Kids grow up way way way too fast, P3’s allow for you to choose a year, any year and remember them in all their forms. Ideal choice for children ages 1-9.
I have had the pleasure of photographing this little beauty for 3 years now. Every year we get together and celebrate her birthday and capture her Holiday Portraits all at the same time. Her Birthday portraits are filled with such wonder and happiness. I want to blow this image up huge and hang it on my wall in my office, it makes me happy every time I look at it. I can feel the pure positive energy just pouring from this babies heart into her images and into our memories forever.
It’s moments like these that are treasured for a lifetime. I remember how much fun I used to have taking bubble baths as a child, blowing the bubbles in the air, making a Santa beard and Mohawks out of bubbles. Memories I will never forget. I was so lucky to be able to capture such a special real moment for this family.
Love these little McCutties as there Mama says! They were so cool, calm and casual during their session like they had been born camera ready or something. We had a terrific time at my favorite Tarrywile Park and Mansion in Danbury CT. Children respond so well to being outdoors in a safe comfortable location and with Mom and Dad close by telling jokes and making silly faces we captured some great family memories. Here is just a glimpse of what we captured on this amazing spring day. This collection is going to look great on the wall!
