Five years ago today I photographed the most beautiful, most magical wedding.
And today I share with you some beautiful images of this family five years later ( I may have to share some wedding photos too….they are still my absolute favorite!)
Omi is the sweetest, silliest kid and I absolutely love our yearly sessions catching up with this family!

If it’s felt like I haven’t been around lately…it’s because I haven’t.
This sweet bundle arrived January 27th and turned our world upside down in the best way possible.
She stole our hearts from moment one.
And we knew…life would never be the same again.
I’ve spent hours upon hours staring at her perfect face. And even more than that kissing her sweet cheeks and tiny hands.
She’s been growing so fast. She needs to slow down.
I could spend forever marveling at the wonder that is her.
But I’ve also been starting to miss work.
So as my sweet girl approaches her 3 month birthday, I know it’s time to jump back in.
Thank you for your patience as I took the time to bond with this cutie pie.
Coming up this week I will have the adorable Duke up on the blog!

This family, gosh I love them. I get so excited when fall rolls around and it’s time for our annual shoot. This year we decided to head down to 5th Street Public Market and I am beyond in love with how these images turned out! It kind of helps that Marley is seriously the cutest thing ever —- I mean come on! Is she for real?
We had such a fun afternoon exploring the market, taking photos and eating sour patch kids, of course. Here is a handful of my favorites.

It’s always such an honor (and slightly nerve wracking) when a fellow photographer asks you to photograph her family. I have known Stacey for quite some time now, having met years ago when I worked with her sister in insurance. Over the last three or four years we have had the chance to shoot together at a handful of weddings and I have had the pleasure of getting to know her better. Stacey is such a sweet, kind hearted soul. When I was pregnant with Harper she took our maternity photos and last year after her youngest, Alex was born I went to their house to shoot her newborn photos.
I was SO EXCITED when she contacted me to do some updated photos this fall. I knew I would end up loving whatever we came up with and I was definitely not disappointed. The relationships within this family are so special, they are so kind to each other, their love is so abundant. Choosing which photos to preview here has been a task because I LOVE THEM ALL.

My good friend, and fellow photographer, Jamie had a baby and five and a half months later I finally got to meet him. AND I got to capture his first trip to the pumpkin patch! I cannot think of a better way to celebrate being 5 1/2 months old.
To see the world through the eyes of a child is an incredible thing and this little guy was so curious about all of it! Capturing the first time he felt (and okay tasted) hay, a pumpkin, the grass…I just loved it all! Here is a little preview of our fun afternoon!

I just love watching this family grow up. Not only are they a fun, gorgeous family of four but they are some of our best friends so any excuse to see them is always a plus! It’s hard to believe its been almost six years since our first session. We had a blast hanging out at Lone Pine eating apple cider donuts and choosing the best pumpkin.
Did I mention how much I love this family?

This is going to be short and sweet because I am exhausted and leaving early tomorrow morning for a weekend of shooting in Eugene, but I promised mom a few more previews of her sweet little gal because she was a tad worried since this cutie decided she wasn’t too into photos during our session.
If you didn’t know, you’d never know. I love this photogenic family!

I had way too much fun with the Sharp family yesterday! This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family and I was stoked when they agreed to meet me at my hidden park I’ve discovered. The fall foliage is stunning right now and we had a blast playing in the leaves and running around snapping photos.

I get so excited when I get to photograph this sweet family, not only have they been good friends of mine for years but I swear they CANNOT take a bad picture. It’s kind of ridiculous. Needless to say I get all giddy whenever they book a session.
On a sunny afternoon this past March we met up at one of their favorite parks for Zoey’s two year photos. I cannot believe this cute girl is two! I love watching her grow and capturing the love of this family. Gabriel park holds extremely special meaning to Jeff and Nikki, not only is it a place they bring Zoey to play on a regular basis but a beautiful bench in memory of one of their good friends is located here and they explained that they always go to visit “Uncle Phil’s bench.”
I had a seriously difficult time narrowing down which photos to include in this post. I love them all.

I always look forward to photographing this family. They are so real. So genuine.
I’ve known Robyn for years, having grown up with her sister Traci, and reconnected with her and her husband Andy a few months after their gorgeous twin girls Lily and Emma came home from the NICU after having a rather rough start to their little lives. Actually a rough start is putting it mildly. During Robyn’s pregnancy they were given a less than 1% chance of their girls surviving. Although I was not in direct contact with Robyn at the time, Traci had shared with me what was going on and my heart ached for this family. Along with countless others I prayed daily that these sweet girls would continue to fight, I remember when Traci told me the girls had both come home from the hospital. I cried tears of happiness for the miracle that was these little girls. I immediately told Traci I wanted to gift them a photography session to celebrate this amazing time, the day so many told them would never come. Both of their precious baby girls had come home from the hospital.
We arranged a day to meet for that first session and the rest, as they say, is history. That was in September of 2012. Nearly three years and multiple photo sessions later I have come to know and love this family so very much. Robyn has been an amazing and true friend to me, being there for me in so many countless ways I cannot even begin to count. I love her as my own family and love watching her sweet kiddos grow up! It has seriously been a challenge trying to narrow down which photos to include in this blog post! I look at these photos and I see real life, there is no pretense, there is no posing for the camera.. Just them, being real.
For this session we decided to meet at a play ground connected to an old school along Coburg Rd out by Harrisburg. I knew it would be the perfect place to start, let the kids run some energy out and of course snap some amazing photos. After the playground we headed down the road about a mile to Andy’s cousin’s house where we caught some beautiful late afternoon rays and played in the field. “Wish” flowers were among a favorite of the kiddos that day as well as making sure we got some good photos with a beloved green frog that came along for the session. This family never ceases to keep me on my toes! I love how this fun and crazy session turned out.
From their first session..
