Closed for the Holidays!

I am 'off' till after January 5th for a much needed break =)
Sessions will resume in mid January with those who have already booked.
If you are pregnant and expecting a newborn in the coming weeks please use the contact form on my website and plan your session well ahead. Remember that newborns need to be photographed in the first two weeks of their birth for the best results.
I am currently booking 4-6 weeks in advance and January is nearly full.

Wishing all of you a very joyous holiday season!!

Another Newborn Baby Girl

Sometimes i am asked what my favorite portrait sessions are...sometimes i think i like photographing older children..then when i am working on a newborn photography session i think i enjoy those guess my favorite is really everything lol!

Meet Margaret Moira! She was a mere 3 days young, with chubby, rosy cheeks. You might remember her big brother from a maternity photography session a few posts down.

Mom and Dad your gallery will be online by Friday night =)

Newborn Photography

Here is a sweet newborn baby girl named Isabella. For a newborn, Miss Isabella was really of the strongest i have met especially those little legs..i predict she will be standing way sooner than most!

Mom requested the 'baby in the fluff' which has become sort of my signature pose for newborn girls =) They seem to really like all the soft ruffles because they always smile.

They came with some super cute blankets and an adorable hat too!

We also wanted to capture a pose that would make a cute 'Fairytale Fusion'...this was fun!

I will be back with more in the coming days as i come up for air from the holiday rush.
Thanks for looking =)

Think Pink Photography Session =)

October as many of you know was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I think it's safe to say that everyone reading has had their lives touched by at least one courageous warrior battling this disease.

Recently i had the pleasure to photograph one such warrior.

Meet Theresa...her beauty, poise, confidence, determination and hope shine like the stars.

5 Days New!!

Hiding head in shame..i have been REALLY bad about updating my blog...i will blame that on *trying* to balance work with having my daughter home for the Summer. It's been tricky but we've been doing great! So my apologies to my usual 'blog stalkers' for the delays lol!
Hopefully this adorable baby boy will make you smile, and forget about what a bad blogger i have been lately...but i will be posting more soon =)
Without further adieu, meet 5 day old Chase (psst....he belongs to the lovely mommy below with the henna belly!)
Thanks for looking and for your wonderful comments..they are always appreciated *smooch* =)
