Great news! I now have the capability to create web based slide shows using the photos from your photo shoot! From now on, if you book a shoot with me you will have the option of ordering a custom built slide show that you can then share with your family and friends. I am super excited about this and really think it is a great way to showcase your photos. Please let me know if you have any questions about these slideshows and get ready to see more in the future!

Click here to see a sample slide show I created from Morgan and Danielle’s recent maternity session!

Danielle spends all day around pregnant women. She is an ultrasound technician who has a gift for taking great pictures of babies in utero. She is the person who told us my daughter, Lily, was going to be a girl and let’s just say she knows the ins and outs of pregnancy (pardon the pun.) The great thing about Danielle is that even though she spends all day every day thinking about pregnancy, she is still fully embracing the wonder that comes from having a hand in creating life. And Danielle’s husband, Morgan, well … let’s just say it is very evident that he can’t wait for his son to arrive.

Morgan and Danielle … you two are going to be amazing parents. You are selfless, kind, thoughtful, and already love your son in a way that only parents can. Gavin is very blessed to have you both as his parents and I am so excited to meet him in just a few short weeks!

Here is your slide show

Even at 8 months pregnant, Danielle still fits into her normal jeans. I may or may not have exclaimed “Unfair!” when I first heard that fact, but thankfully Danielle is adorable enough to take away any feelings of jealousy I had. Almost.


I can’t wait to meet you, Gavin! You are already loved by so many wonderful people!

Celeste and Simon have the kind of love that is palpable. It is deep, true, and passionate. Watching them interact was like watching a love song come to life, if that makes any sense. They are beautiful and even just participating as a spectator in their love concert was a magical experience.

Celeste and Simon, thank you for sharing your love. I hope you enjoy your photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Bird watching.

Simon is Russian and is reading to Celeste from a book in Russian. That thud you just heard was me swooning.

“When Ava was a baby and people would say she was beautiful, rather than saying ‘Thank you,’ Toby would say ‘I know!'” Britni said laughing.

Toby smiled sheepishly and replied “Well, she is beautiful and I do know it.”

Toby, you are 100% right. Baby Ava was beautiful and toddler Ava is just exquisite. She has big brown eyes, sweet curly hair, a fun and curious personality – what more could you ask for from an almost two year old? Britni and Toby are blessed … and they certainly know it.

Britni, Toby, and Ava – thank you for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives! I so enjoyed spending the afternoon with you and getting to know Ava. She is a doll and I look forward to watching her grow! I hope you enjoy your photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Beautiful, right?

We were taking some photos of just Mom and Dad, but Ava didn’t want to miss out!

“Eat this rock, Mom!”

Ava loves her Mom …

and her Dad … 

and flowers …

and sticks …

and dirt! What a girl!
