Silver lining

I was a little frustrated with how the photos from my spring special came out only because there were so many families (for which I cannot be honored and grateful enough) and I am new and still learning, and we did so many in each day that the lighting conditions were not the best.  I know that early morning or later evening are best but we were dealing with  a time line for Easter and baby chicks, and rain…oh the drama! Anyway – I am finding the silver lining and realizing that I am loving some of them in black and white.  So Cat, I hope you like these.  You are such a patient friend!

to my Burlington friends!

Thank you all so much again for having me out to take your photos I had such a great time! I have all of your CDs ready to go. Danny will be working in Burlington again on Thursday and I can send them up with him if you would like to pick them up. I do have a favor to ask of you as well. Some of you I have contact info for, and some I do not (new business owner anyone???) If you could all send me your contact information
ie: address/telephone/email/blog invite at
so that I can contact you that would be wonderful!
Thanks ladies,

Aren’t siblings just the best?  OK so not every second…but these two are so cute and you can just tell how much he looks up to his big sis.

Amazing things!

My friend *T* amazes me!  Look at these four adorable kiddos.  In the almost 3 years that I have known her, her Husband has been overseas pretty much the ENTIRE time!  She is organized, sweet, and always smiling.  Looking through everybody’s photos these past few weeks I realized how many incredible Moms I know.  I feel blessed to have so many friends that I can learn so much from!  I hope Dad likes these photos and that they help him remember all these cute faces who are supporting him from home!



Another one that just looked so much better in sepia than color!



Playing with the chicks!


I love it!


This Family was so fun! The cutie little princess there on the left (I do know her name but I try not to publish those if I can – paranoid parent that I am!) is hilarious.  She is so confident and knows what she wants – hmmm I wonder why I like that???  Her sweet brother was not loving the camera so much, he had been sick the night before and so this was probably not what he would have picked to do that morning!  All in all I thought they came out cute!




Ok so you are well aware of my obsession with this kind of shot, but does this look like the stance of a big sister in charge or what? I couldn’t resist!


We lucked out a little this time because I was able to get a few of the extras that I thought came out ok, and I felt so bad for that sweet little boy and because he didn’t feel good he wasn’t so smiley – so I thought I would add these as well.  I love the last one, we moms just know when our babies have had it and need a little extra attention!  It didn’t play out as well in color, but I love it in black and white.  PS if I was ever able to sit in a swing and hold my little guy – while I was 6 months pregnant…. I would be dancing in the streets! You look great mom!

Birthday boy.

How cute are these boys?  They were so nice and polite too. And it was big brothers birthday the day of the shoot as well – being that getting pictures taken is not usually a favorite thing for teenage boys, I was surprised that he was so happy and sweet!

Boys are so fun to photograph because they are game for anything….”Hey can you climb that tree over there…?”

Em…your kids are too adorable!

Ask anyone who knows me…I’m not great at self discipline.  I am having such a hard time keeping it to 5 photos!  I can’t believe I didn’t stick these two sweet girls in my car and bring them home!  This first pictures makes me want to sing that Brite song - “she’s my sister” …she’s about this high, she’s taller than I, sometimes she helps me tie my shoes….she’s my sister(in perfect pitch of course!)  okay I’m done.  I promise.




I am dying over these.




To my Easter Specials...

Just in case you are wondering, I haven't disappeared! I am finishing up the last few sessions and will be posting soon! I hope that I remembered to give everyone the general time frame for receiving their edited photos. With a big session like this I am aiming for 2-3 weeks. Thank you all so much for your patience!

Bright eyes!


Allegra has the most incredible eyes I have ever seen!  They sparkle!


I love the way Mom’s look at their babies.  Those real life “feel the love” moments!


Too cute!

Another adorable spring special session!  I am having the hardest time deciding weather I like these better in black and white or full color – these kiddos just look amazing in black and white!  Something about dark hair and perfect skin… or light hair and perfect skin – maybe its just the perfect skin part, sheesh what would that be like?




Okay so obviously not a fancy shot, but his expression cracked me up!


I do not know what it is with me and kid feet!  I don’t even usually like feet – in fact, grown up feet pretty much gross me out but cute little feet are pretty- and that is all there is to it!


OK so I lied- this is not really black and white, but I really like the antique for this shot.
