Sessions like these just MELT MY SOUL! This family was so much fun to be around, I did not want our session to end! The kids, Benjamin and Sophie were the sweetest things who were so happy to have their photos taken! Little Benjamin had some great ideas on where to stand and what shots to get. He was a great helper! Sophie had just celebrated her 3rd birthday the day before our session so I was thrilled to capture her 3 year old photos for mom and dad. She was not wanting to be in the photos alone, but she was so happy to have mom and dad with her for most of her birthday photos!
Now. if you know me, you guys all know I love love love details! Hannah asked me to capture something very important to her during our session that made me tear up. You see, she is wearing 3 rings on her finger. Each ring represents her babies. The baby that is due in October is their rainbow baby but she wears these rings because even though one baby is not physically with her, they are with her in spirit and she always wants to have them near. The rings have Benjamin and Sophie’s name on them, a due date from baby #3 and once this little bundle arrives, she will add on another ring. Isn’t this the sweetest thing?! I just love it so much and I am so happy she told me about this so that I could capture these precious memories for her.
So, I bet you wanna know what they are having…. I do too! But! We will have to wait! Hannah and Robert decided that since they found out the gender for their first 2 kiddos, they want to be surprised for this new baby. When they told me this, as much as I want to know, I appreciated this decision as this is what we did for Ethan and Henry! The surprise of finding out the gender the day you meet them is such a gift and THE BEST surprise! I for sure thought that Henry was a girl and when they said he was a boy I was shocked but still so amazing and so happy. Whoever this little one is, I pray that he or she is healthy and safe and that they give mom an easy and “pain free” (if it can be pain free) delivery.
Hannah, Robert, Benjamin and Sophie, thank you so much for spending the night with me, making me laugh and caputre all these amazing moments of your family before your littlest is here. It is so amazing to see the love you all have for one another and when you look at these photos, you will see just that coming from everyone. So. Much. Love! I am so excited to meet your newest baby and I hope that you can treasure these next few weeks together as a family of 4 before you are a family of 5! I can not wait to see you all again! Here are some of my favorites from our session together. I hope you love these as much as I do! xoxo.
Each year I get to see so many returning faces that I just LOVE seeing but what made this session so special to me was that I got to see these guys 3 times this year! Aiden was born August 8, 2019. I captured his newborn session at their home where my goodness he was just the sweetest and his big brother was adorable with so much energy! His personalty was so fun to photograph! I saw them again for Aiden’s 6 month session back at their home where he was JUST learning to sit up.
This session was their one year milestone session with “baby’ Aiden! We met at the beach this time and it was so much fun to see how much the kids grew in the last 6 months! Aiden is starting to stand on his own and take steps. He was not so sure about the feel of the water but he did like to play a bit in the sand. His smile is so contagious and I just love all of this little features! Big Brother Owen always succeeds in making me laugh. These boys are just so much fun and I loved getting to spend time with them! Mom and Dad, you did it! A year with two! That deserves a celebration!
Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your first year with Aiden. I am so thankful for you all and I just love watching them grow! Here are some of my favorite photos from our session together! Happy 1st Birthday Aiden!! xoxoxo
The month of July flew by! This was the month that I opened back up for sessions and I am so thankful for everyone who has booked with me! I got to see so many new and old faces from the Ali B Family and it just makes me so happy that year after year I watch them all grow!
I have photographed this extended family for the past few years! I’ve seen these little ones when they were all in their mommies tummies still and look at them now! So big!!! I had the best time visiting all of them and I am already looking forward to next year! Their personalities all shine in these photos and I am so excited to share them with you.

Here are just a few of my favorites!
June has been a month of baby talk! A few weeks ago I shot THIS beautiful Maternity Session. Then, I received an email from a friend of mine that they were having a birthday parade for their daughter, Ellie who was turning 2 along with a small gathering for a gender reveal at their home. I planned to go to both the birthday parade and gender reveal with the kids and I asked her if she wanted me to bring my camera along! She responded how much of a gift that would be, so the kiddos, my camera and I went to celebrate!
It was really sweet to see the little birthday girl and her mama’s baby bump! At 11 weeks, its showing slightly and its adorable! Close friends gathered around after the parade as mom and dad popped a balloon revealing the gender of their new baby coming soon!
Congratulations Duffy family! I am so excited for you! Ellie is going to be the BEST big sister!! <3
I can not believe it has been 6 months since I last saw this family for Aiden’s newborn session! It is 100% true what they say, the days are long but the years are short. Before I knew it, February was approaching and I knew we needed to get this 6 month photo session in before their little features were not so little anymore! A few weeks ago I went back to their house and we had our session together capturing those candid lifestyle moments and I have to say, I just love sessions like this! This was so laid back, mom Breann was amazing handling her big kid, little kid and fur baby. She’s a natural! I loved catching up with her about life and hearing all of the little milestones Aiden has been achieving!
He was such a good baby during our session, fully idolizing his brother and not minding at all when his dog would walk on him. He is just starting to sit up but mom said he still needs assistance. We attempted to see if he could sit up on his own toward the end of our session and sure enough, HE DID IT! He mastered sitting up and I was there to see it! I was so proud and so excited I got to be there to capture those moments for mom and dad!
I am so excited to see them again for Aiden’s 1st Birthday session! Breann, TJ, Owen and Aiden, thank you so much, again for opening up your home to me to capture this first year of Aiden with you! He is going to have so many new milestones happening within the next few months and when I see you all again, I am so excited to see the difference just 6 more months make! Owen, thanks for keeping me on my toes and always laughing! You are such a great big brother! It is so clear that Aiden looks up to you so much already! Here are just a few of my favorites from out session together! xo.
