Archive for 'Family Sessions'

It’s been a crazy last few weeks here. I have been working so hard to get all my client sessions edited and to them, plus any orders as well. I’m going on maternity leave starting this Friday. I can’t believe it!!


The Skrinska family is amazing! I’ve been photographing them for a little over 2 years now and it’s always such a pleasure! Here are some fun images from their family session at the beach!

Happy Thursday!

With about 2 weeks left of this year I am going to try really hard to get as many of my sessions from this year up on my blog. I haven’t been able to blog as much this year as I would like to and I’m hoping to change that for 2013 :)

Back in April ( yes, I said April) I had the pleasure of photographing some beautiful families for a really amazing cause. I normally only do mini sessions towards the end of the year for the Holidays, but I really wanted to help contribute something to one of my photographer colleagues and her husband Isaac. You can read about their story HERE. It really struck a chord in my heart and I wanted to help any way I could. So, I thought that I could incorporate a special day of mini sessions and give a portion of the proceeds to the Help Heal Isaac fund. So that’s just what we did. I love being a part of something bigger than myself while also getting to provide photography to families :)

I really can’t express my gratitude to all of these amazing families! It’s always such a pleasure to photograph and get to meet such friendly people, but it makes it even better when I feel like we all pull together for a great cause!

Special thanks to my amazing assistant Carri for coming along to help me with these. You are the BEST sweet friend xoxo

My cup runneth over!!!!
