From Tom and Katie’s front-yard first look to the zany father-daughter dance which invited everyone to the dance floor… what a blast at this shindig! It was an honor and such a delight to get to know Katie and Tom as this event brewed. Such a wonderful couple! I also now enjoy some nostalgia in working with their families. Tom… […]

Maternity portraits right in your own home is such an endearing way to celebrate how mom and dad lived together before the little one arrives. A quick check on baby’s kicks while hanging out in the kitchen, a peek inside the nursery, and this little canine popping in here and there to give a baby bump nuzzle.… […]

We started with sketches on acetate atop the kitchen table, and it grew… […]

Soon to be a family of four! Congratulations on the upcoming little girl, Aleen! And kudos to mom for braving maternity portraits just a couple weeks away from due date. She’s gorgeous!

“Great Scott!” said Nicole when she first saw him dressed as a scient– I mean, a blacksmith from 1885. This styled shoot began, honestly, because I wanted to see these two climb on the outside of a steam locomotive. And how! Back to the Future is one of my all time favorite science fiction stories. No… […]
