I always try to emphasize to my clients what an important role styling plays in a photo session and it is always so fun when a client lets me take the reigns and send outfit options. โ€œTell me what to wearโ€ is like music to my ears. Insert giddy online shopper. ๐Ÿ˜œ As a splurge idea I sent this dress option to mom for her fall family session and she loved it. I just had this vision for this dress and for her kiddos and knew they would be beautiful surrounded by the fall foliage. It was that and then some!! Makes my little photographer heart sing when a vision comes together in a such a beautiful way. Come over and follow me on Facebook (link in profile) to see another of these gorgeous ladies and wait until you see big sister, can't wait to share more when things slow down a bit. โค๏ธโค๏ธ
And baby makes three ๐Ÿ’™
Fall ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ‚
Another day of dreary weather and wish I could just crawl back in bed and ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด
I think @taylorswift song โ€œshake it offโ€ has become my anthem this fall photoshoot season. Between the crazy all over the place weather, the mountain โ›ฐ of editing I have to do and my kiddos fall school and activity related madness alongside everything else, this song is now my go to when I am feeling overwhelmed with it all. I do know it will all get done, I know ultimately it will come together and in the interim I need to just shake it off. Best part is getting kiddos to dance along to it with me during sessions! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป
Super sweet with their parakeet ๐Ÿฆ
Love an impromptu โ€œhang tenโ€ moment with this cutie from last weekend. ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜ŠWishing everyone a joyful and fun weekend!
Twinkling baby blues get me every time ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™
Swinging into fall sessions with this plaid clad can someone chat to the weather gods and actually give me some fall weather. Please and thank you. :)
I know itโ€™s not Fatherโ€™s Day today but just wanted to give all those amazing dads and husbands out there a little love. This past weekend my husband and I were able to escape on an anniversary celebration to FL (thanks mom and @kmo6283 for your assist in making that happen!). Hard to believe it will be 9 amazing years as of tomorrow 10-10-09. (And almost 12 years together). ;) For a little peek check out my instagram story above โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜˜
Gorgeous weekend and week full of sessions. So thankful it's finally been a rainless week to catch up. Lots of heart melting images to share from so many sessions, but this was an immediate favorite. What a little ray of sunshine!๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป
I perfect are these two? Easily one of my favorite things about my job is getting to hold all these sweet newbies, even when they throw up (breast milk burp) in my hair (a little)๐Ÿ˜Š...I got home from this beautiful session at the #thedupontcirclehotel and that little crunch of the hair and it literally brought me back! While my babies are getting bigger and I am not planning on any more, it's moments like that that really make me stop and remember how truly amazing it all is...โค๏ธ
Another gallery delivered! Love this one so much, hope they do too! ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ’—
Did today feel like Monday to anyone else? I know a long weekend can totally throw schedules for a loop but maybe itโ€™s wishful thinking but I could really use a Monday right now. So much work... not enough time. ๐Ÿ™ƒ I can hear the fall photo season scratching at my door (weather notwithstanding) and while super excited for so many fun photo shoots coming up, I kind of feel like curling up for the day and taking a little snooze (like this cutie) to prepare. ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜€ if you are interested in a session, and want a weekend I am fully booked in September and October and only have one, possibly two weekends dates left in November. Weekdays I have more flexibility but I would reach out to me soon as these are also starting to book up. For those that reached out about minis, apologies as I am little behind in my mini sessions announcements this year but fear not I will be in touch via email to my previous clients this Friday for booking. As always these sell out fast so be sure to grab a spot as soon as you can. Any remaining slots will be open to new clients beginning of next week. Happy Wednesday!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
While they may not be as little anymore, theyโ€™ll always be your baby. ๐Ÿ’—
Canโ€™t believe my babies are back to school already and another summer is coming to close. Itโ€™s been a whirlwind week back to reality! I donโ€™t like advertising on social media when my family is out of town (also itโ€™s nice to have some down time) so apologies for the radio silence, but the last couple weeks we have been in Ireland visiting family and friends. Though my husband is Irish (born and raised) and we have been to Ireland many times itโ€™s always amazing seeing Ireland through my kids eyes and to see the continued joy of discovering a country that is deeply a part of them. This is my sweet baby boy getting a few little wiggles of his toes in the Irish sand before we departed back to the States. It was so hard to leave such a beautiful country and say goodbye to so many people we love. And while I am not quite ready for woolly sweaters and corduroys all the time, just yet, I am excited to see what is to come because our Irish summer fun is going to be hard to top! Check out my first Instagram story to see some more images from our trip. ๐Ÿ’™โ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช #mybabyboy #sweetestcurls #lovehimsomuch #ireland #irelandportraits #childrensportraits
Hello friday! Tonight kicks off the start of a much needed break before the back to school/fall photo madness arrives... but managed to squeeze in one last breathtaking maternity session before I turn on my out of office. Beautiful couple, beautiful bump, and beautiful light = very happy photographer. Wishing everyone a wonderful rest of your summer and canโ€™t wait for whatโ€™s to come...๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿปโค๏ธ
If I was giving out awards for sweetest kiddo this guy would be on the podium for sure.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿ’™
