cheek family home session

the most gorgeous family in the simple context of their home. tender cuddles and quiet moments. my heart sings when a session is this raw and this true. so grateful to the cheeks for letting me in and being so openly loving. it shows. 

daadaoui family

Nicole (of Shop Bisby) and Mohamed welcomed me so warmly into their home and Nicole said "Hi!" while immediately handing over sweet Malik. I was thinking yes, this is my dream client- someone that trusts me to hold their baby before I photograph them, someone that knows how badly I want to hold cute babies before I get to work. I like to get to know my models. ;)
Their beautiful home was the best backdrop, with their moroccan inspired style and incredible textures. Their love as a little family unit was so breathtaking and just fun to watch. Malik, of course, stole the show. I mean, come on. His hair and big dark eyes, and that gummy smile oh my goodness. 

Family story sessions include photos and videos, so I get to capture those sweet giggles real time. Don't miss the Daadaoui's family film below!

ty 6 months

The Shipley's are always fun to photograph! They have so much fun with their son and it conveys in photographs beautifully. I love it when they can't take their eyes off of each other and their baby! So much good work is made with clients like that. 
And prepare for the. cutest. thing. Terrie told me that Ty loves bubble baths so of course we had to work that into their session! I will say it over and over again, I LOVE photographing real life things.  Enjoy this sweetness. 

eleanor is one

One of my favorite everyday things to shoot is snacking. Toddlers eating is so so silly and cute. And I promise you will enjoy looking back on it when they eat like normal humans. ;)

I've been photographing E since before she was born! One of the best things about my job is watching littles grow. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be a small part of so many magical first years of life. The change and personality that happens in a short year leaves me in awe. What a lovely job I have. 

nicole + family

A gorgeous family in a gorgeous location?! Yes please! 
I love that Nicole and her kids came up with shooting at the lake. It's somewhere that means something to them in this season of life. Plus I love shooting in different places. 
Enjoy these giggly goofy kiddos and their momma. I know I did!

palmer family

"Molly's kind, easy presence made us feel comfortable, allowing her to capture a very ordinary Saturday morning for our family. I love that we have beautiful documentation of Caroline's extreme love of puffy tacos." -Ashley Palmer

The Palmer's little family tradition is to go to the farmer's market every Saturday to have tacos and dance to local music. And WOW wait until you see how much Caroline likes those tacos. I love how the Palmer's answered my question "what do you do as a family?" with such a fun tradition. I truly think it makes all the difference.
I absolutely loved capturing the Palmers in their natural routine. It's so authentic and makes these photos just that much more valueable.

Plus, Caroline is just a little doll baby in the most literal definition of that phrase. Just look at the sweetness that shines through. 

tenleigh turns one

I have had the pleasure of having Tenleigh's parents and their families as clients for years. But I hadn't met Miss Tenleigh until this session and WOW. She is a light. The sillest, giggliest, sweetest little thing. I love this age when babies are curious about everything and have a budding little sense of humor. This session was so fun and honestly, Tenleigh just made me job easy.

Plus I can totally relate to her estastic reaction to cake.
