Maternity Session - End of Summer

The knowing smiles on this couple’s faces tell of a not-so-distant future full of promise,
hope, and joy. There is so much goodness in store for them, and their elation for the
family they’re building together is palpable. Maternity sessions are so very special.

Lifestyle - Newborn 2 weeks old and fighting sleep

At only two weeks old – right at the sweet spot for newborn photography – this
handsome guy went against the grain and stayed awake for much of our time together.
As such, my attempts at wraps were unsuccessful, so we embraced the pacifier and
worked with his shifting needs.

Senior Session on a lake

This smiling senior had an air of confidence and authenticity that radiates from his photos. The way he
carried himself was unmatched. Following a simple prompt – “walk down this pier like you would in the
hall on the first day of your senior year” – he owned the dock, striding with pride and poise.

Lifestyle - Newborn and family - Light, Bright, No color in sight

This lovely family chose their primary bedroom for their session backdrop, wearing white clothes to
complement the white and neutral shades of their decor. This color palette, along with ample natural
light streaming in from the couple's large bedroom windows, created a beautiful series of bright,
dreamy photographs.

Lifestyle - Newborn and family - Dramatic light

For this beautiful family's session, we planned to optimize their new baby boy's introduction with
dramatic lighting photography. Playing up the contrast between dark and light, these kinds of pictures
often lead to amazing black and white captures.
