Having Sunny as a child is not unlike having the Queen of England as your child…or so I would imagine. My daughter is all princess, all of the time. I’ve told you her take on most everything, “Mommy, that’s not for pretty.” As in “Would you like to play soccer this spring?” “Mommy, that’s not Read more ..

2014 was one of the best years of my life. To be perfectly honest- every year we have good health and each other is perfect. I want to thank you readers for coming to this space and sharing this crazy ride with us. Your kindness and support means everything to me and my family. If Read more ..

My Gracen, You are five years old. We have five years worth of memories together- and yes my life began only when I met you. I seem to have no memories ( none worth remembering) before your existence, and now that you’re here I have no memory that doesn’t include, or revolve around you. Now Read more ..

This past weekend made me so happy. We kicked off the Christmas season at my friend Amanda’s house. She hosts a Christmas caroling party every year (though this was our first) and it really felt the way Christmas should. Children, and laughter, and joy, and treats, and homemade eggnog!

I’m very fortunate to have gotten to photograph this beautiful family in Verona Park, on one of the coldest days of this fall.

This Halloween I crafted a plan to have all of my friends come to our home and celebrate the holiday in style; and by style I mean bring Pinterest related items. It got stressful, I’m not gonna lie. I know Mom’s who make their kids costumes and bake their own desserts and craft special games. Read more ..

This weekend we finally got around to taking both of the kids to the pumpkin patch. It’s brilliant to watch little kids pet donkey’s and squeal over hay rides. They believe all farms have cute little baby animals who eat carrots and love humans. It’s all very clean and cute. I’m not sure Saint was Read more ..

I had a wonderful time photographing the Acquaviva Family, this past weekend. It’s a very lucky day when you get to combine your work with your friends.  It’s even more lucky when you get to photograph identical twins, who happen to be as sweet as they are cute. We photographed the family in the warm Read more ..
