Susan and Ken are a couple that has made such a big impact during my years doing photography, and that I always think of with so much fondness and gratitude. I feel so fortunate not just to have photographed their engagement and wedding, but also lucky to have been able to stay in touch with them afterwards, thanks to the wonders of facebook and instagram. It’s been two years since their beautiful wedding day, but we managed to follow along on each other’s adventures this way and I was beyond ecstatic to learn that they were expecting. And even more excited when they contacted me to do a maternity session! These two are seriously some of the kindest souls you will ever meet, and to be able to document another milestone in their lives is such an honor.

Susan and Ken – congratulations! Can’t wait for the arrival of your little one!

Clara initially contacted me for professional headshots, and I was so excited when I asked if she preferred something against a backdrop in the studio or an outdoor more organic setting, and she chose the latter. We headed to one of my favorite pretty nature spots and after getting some of the more standard shots, she happily let me get a bit more creative and I so love how these images came out. I remembered after this session the importance of “just because” portraits – it’s wonderful to celebrate milestone occasions with a portrait session, but there’s a beauty in capturing just the in-between pieces of this particular time in your life. Just simple beautiful portraits celebrating you.

Clara is such a beauty inside and out and we had so much fun a this session! If a “just because” session is something you’d be interested in, please feel free to reach out to me here!

This amazing little family – I can’t even begin to tell you how overjoyed it makes to have been able to document so many milestones in their lives. I still remember my very first meeting with Dawn to discuss her wedding – we talked about travel, and bicycles, and food (so much about food!) and I seriously walked out of that meeting feeling like we were old friends. I had the opportunity to photograph their engagement session and wedding, then maternity portraits when Dawn was carrying little Ryder, and this session, where they’re expecting their second little boy. He’s since arrived and I couldn’t be happier for them!

At the last moment, Dawn decided to bring the teepee from Ryder’s room, and I loved how it turned out in photos! :)
