I have a long pending-blogs list…it’s embarrassing. I have sessions from last spring that are sitting on that list and what’s more embarrassing is that I have no rhyme or reason for the order that I’m writing blogs. A spring ’20 session will sit there and stare at me while I hammer out the blog […]

Ok. Let’s all address the elephant in the room. Photos with a toddler can be challenging. Let me list the reasons: Toddlers are opinionated. Toddlers require a LOT for their own happiness (and also nothing – see toddler ignoring the expensive toy in favor of the box…but I digress) Toddlers need an endless supply of […]

I’ve always claimed to love summer best. The long days with the perpetual promise of a Saturday evening campfire and s’mores. The lazy mornings waiting for my swim team swimmer, listening to the crickets and the frogs sing their perennial song. No school work, easy Cobb salad dinners, long pool days, the smell of sunblock, […]

Everyone likes a deal…I bet you can’t find one person who would rather pay full price for something when they could get a price break on it. And I know I’d rather establish a longer-term relationship with a client than photograph someone once and never see them again. So I took the knowledge that people […]

So. I am sitting here on this rainy afternoon learning a VERY IMPORTANT PARENTING LESSON. This blog will have less to do with newborn photography (though I will be sure to include lots of pictures to make up for it) and more to do with this very important parenting lesson that I am in the […]

Isn’t it interesting how things come about? Since starting my photography business in 2017 and then deciding to specialize in maternity, newborn and first year milestones last year, I have worked very hard on honing my style and putting out into the world what I want to attract back. If I wanted to photograph vibrant […]

Whenever I get an inquiry for a lifestyle (in-home) session, I always squeal a little. I adore lifestyle sessions. Granted, I vet them very carefully to make sure that I can deliver the style that my clients have come to expect from me…but when I know that a client’s home gets great natural light and […]

So I’m in a time crunch with 22 blogs to write before the summer is over and the fall rush begins. That’s 22 sessions that have happened since I re-opened after Covid and, yes, I’m crazed and overwhelmed and not sure how I’m going to get everything done – but I’m also in awe and […]

In my work as a maternity and newborn photographer, I see lots of couples and families. My work with them takes me into their lives at a pivotal point, where changes are being made not only at the familial level but at an individual level. I have to say, it can be so profound witnessing […]
