Spring babies!

What a spring it has been already! Just look at these beautiful families!
I’m really sitting here thinking how much of a blessing it is to do this for a living. There are so many gorgeous moments captured, and I know how happy it makes you all as well!

It was a long winter with so many unforeseen circumstances, so doing this really helps get you out of any seasonal funk quickly 😀 How can you not smile seeing these in your email, right?
Have a safe weekend, and remember to take a moment of silence for our fallen service members.


Cozy up by the campfire! North Pole, Alaska style!

Every year for the last 3 years I have done my campfire sessions, and I LOVE them! They’re cute, cozy, and I make some amazing homemade cider for everyone who comes.
These sessions are so perfect for the holidays, and perfectly timed during the fall so you can actually enjoy being outdoors!
Here’s a few from this year for you to enjoy!
Didn’t get a chance to book your own family session? Head here to book your own!

Christmas Babies!

Something about the Holidays just makes time go too quickly! Thankfully I was blessed to photograph quite a few sweet little babies for their first Christmas! I try not to work too much during the Holiday season, but these little boys and girls give me a moment to pause and appreciate the little things this time of year. It gets so hectic shopping and baking and mailing out packages, so I absolutely cherish those moments I get to just snuggle and pose these precious little ones.
