  • The Nguyen Family

  • The Nguyen Family When clients are visiting from other parts of the country (or the world!) it is always a little nerve wrecking watching the weather. Most of the year our days are sunny and bright, with lovely sunrises and stunning sunsets. But we do have a rainy season, and this year that rainy season lasted much [...]
  • The Meidus Family

  • The Meidus Family You never know how little ones will react to a stranger holding a giant camera in their face... I've experienced a range of reactions - most positive, some unfortunate, and at least one kinda downright scary. Thankfully, this little girl was an absolute dream! When you add the bright blue waters of [...]
  • The Cavanaugh Family

  • The Cavanaugh Family This mama is stunning, inside and out, and she is adored by the four men in her life. It was so fun watching them all dote on her during their session! When she told me she wanted the Hawaiian woods as her backdrop, in lieu of the beach, I was thrilled!! Hawaii has so much to offer when you move [...]
  • The Rohrbough Family

  • The Rohrbough Family If I had to use one word to describe this little tribe of three it would be: fun. What a fantastic evening it was exploring a gorgeous part of the island with them! While I adore capturing "picture perfect" portraits, there is something so sweet about the candid, fun, adventurous nature of so ma [...]
  • The Brown Family

  • The Brown Family We are so fortunate in this military life to cross paths with so many fantastic people. This gorgeous couple stayed next door to us in the Inn on base when we first moved here, and then we ended living on the same street just a few doors down. With the craziness of life we don't get to see each othe [...]
  • The Harkens Family

  • The Harkens Family I've been thinking a lot lately about this whole parenthood deal. My kids are now 10 and 12, and while the days of diapers and binkies feel like a million years ago, they also somehow feel like yesterday. Crazy how that can happen, isn't it? I am truly convinced, though, that watching them grow [...]
  • The Rosa Family

  • The Rosa Family There is something so fun and equally intimidating about photographing another photographer. One part of my brain is telling me that this is no different than any other shoot, and the other is wondering if it has become painstakingly obvious that I have no idea what I'm doing. That's not true, of [...]
  • The O'Neal Family

  • The Oneal Family You know when you walk into a room and you immediately see the most perfect spot for indoor family pictures that you have ever seen? Does this not happen to you? Well that is exactly what happened when I walked into the O'Neal's home. This giant window, flanked with beautiful navy blue curtains a [...]
  • Breanne's Family

  • Bre and her babies I grew up thousands of miles from most of my cousins, but the once a year family reunion was always an incredibly special time. Bre and I would reconnect over the course of the week as if we had never been apart. Now we're both moms, still living thousands of miles apart, but still so connected in [...]
  • The Doughty Family

  • The Doughty Family This sweet couple...  the majestic mountains and rolling tide...  the vibrant and constantly changing skies... There is simply nothing not to love about this maternity session. When I sit down at the computer to edit session images I am always flooded with memories of sweet moments together [...]
  • Priorities and Productivity

  • Priorities and Productivity I have a confession to make: I'm not always very productive. Now, before you start imagining me laying on the couch all day watching soap operas and eating bonbons, let me clarify:  I'm always busy.  I'm just not always productive. There are many different things that I need to acco [...]
  • The Creativity Gift

  • Today when the kids arrived home from school they dropped their backpacks and immediately ran to the playground.  They were armed with flip flops and sticks to reenact scenes from Harry Potter.  I decided to follow them out with my camera because, hello cuteness.  As I sat at my computer uploading the pictures later I [...]
