I have the greatest job in the whole world, for me. I love and adore newborns and new families, and a lot of my day is spent speaking with mom’s in those first few days after birth. That confusing and delicious time between meeting your newest family member and not sleeping It’s truly a Read more ..
I feel so fortunate to spend my weeks with brand new lives. I can’t explain how very excited I get to come up with a custom shoot for each of my newborn clients and their families. This little beauty is just 7 days new and is the most alert little beauty! My favorite Read more ..
I have often spoken about how Little Love Stories is my dream come true. I am constantly amazed that I get to be a photographer and filmmaker. It isn’t that I haven’t earned it, I have, it’s more that I am grossly aware that most people do not get to make a living doing the Read more ..
Gracen is my oldest. She’s been taking ballet since she was 2.5 (I’ve blogged about that before) Admittedly when I signed her up for ballet, so very long ago, I really just wanted to live out that mother who has a daughter fantasy.

This summer was different than those that came before it. When expecting a baby in August, summer sort of feels like your doing it with your hands tied behind your back. I can’t believe how quickly it came and went. We try to take the kids on adventures every weekend. I like to think of Read more ..
