Beach date with Steven

A year ago she wrote these words to me,

“... I wouldn’t change this for nothing in the world.  All I want to do is kiss baby toes and snuggle all day. I’ve even gotten to the point that if he naps for too long or daddy is holding him for too long.. I start missing him. I’m thankful to have the blonde baby I’ve always wanted. I’m also lucky to have such a helpful husband. Caring for a newborn is exhausting, but he does it with so much determination and love. Maybe I don’t get as much done these days, but its these moments I hope to remember when he’s grown. My arms and heart feel full.”


Gabriel’s Baby Story

It was late that Thursday night when I last spoke to Yogi confirming all the details of tomorrow’s birth session I was to photograph. We knew everything that was supposed to happen because she was having a scheduled c-section and since she had gone through this once before with the birth of her beautiful daughter, we knew it would be a walk in the park. No surprises since we had made it surprise-free to the c-section date, or so we thought. The very next morning I woke up extra early to squeeze in a Starbucks run before heading to the hospital, because births are always long sessions. I was extra peppy since I had just returned from Louisiana after photographing another birth and I knew that I would be just as excited today.


Lorelei at home

There is beauty in the familiar touch of the one person you have loved before you have even met. The sweetness in her voice is your favorite sound. She is always with you. Ready to give every bit of herself to serve you as home for you to grow. She fights and pushes with all her might to bring you her and she cradles you in her arms the moment your through coming into this world. You open your eyes to meet her and she’s more beautiful than you imagined. She’s crying and kissing you and showering you with a feeling you have yet to come to know. She promises never to let you go. And although time may pass and you learn all the things you never knew,


welcome to the world Lorelei

One day old little Lorelei was melting our hearts as she played with her big sister Lily for the first time all to herself. The day before was all sorts of magical and I will not pretend that anything compares to that first moment you birth your baby and meet them for the first time, but sometimes those quiet moments to yourself after all the craziness of having people in and out of your room can be just as special. Those are the moments you get to examine and admire your newborn baby after so many months of waiting to meet her. Moments that will never be forgotten because unlike the day of, your hard work of bringing this baby into the world is done.

Mommy & Me Mini with Patty & Emma

Mini-Sessions at the Park

During our last session together, Emma and her sweet parents were a dream to photograph. I was so excited to have them in front of my lens one more time so soon for a session this past weekend. Our mini-session together was the perfect addition to commemorate this happy baby stage Emma is in. If only babies would remain this way a bit longer for us moms to enjoy. That first time we met at Starbucks I knew I would have a blast working with Emma and it was true then, the first time we shot and just this weekend. Such a happy giggly baby. A great reflection of Patty’s kind and sweet heart. I don’t really know Patty,
