Another 2011 Favorite: The “Little Loves” of Libby Lane

December 28th, 2011



No their last name isn’t Libby Lane, but if you follow my blog then you know I talk about Libby Lane quite a bit! One of my very first clients, connected me with Nicolle from Libby Lane Press. She thought my love of children’s photography and Nicolle’s love of parties and all things creative would be a perfect fit. Well she was right. Nicolle has to be one of the sweetest people I know and I am glad to call her a friend. When she asked me to do a shoot for her own two “little loves”, I was so excited. Due to nap times of a three year old and 18 month old, we had to do the shoot during mid day. We found the perfect little spot of shade at a local park and had a blast! Her daughter Sophia adores the camera and was quite the ham. Cole on the other hand, not as much of a fan, but we captured him just as Nicolle loves him, fingers, blanket and all. Thanks Nicolle for such a fun shoot and a fun year! We have so much more ahead!

A 2011 Favorite: Lauren’s Rainy Day Beach Maternity Session

December 22nd, 2011

I don’t think it is hard to see why this is one of my favorite sessions for 2011. 
It was during our family vacation in September. 
A combination of a gorgeous sister-in-law, a  seven month baby bump and a sense of adventure
made for these stunning images. 
When I suggested the idea to Lauren that we should head to the beach in the cold (…think sub 60 degrees) and rain (…can you even tell?) she didn’t hesitate.
I was thankful she let me be particular about the light and have a vision for the overall session.
Beach photography can be hard because of the direct light, but in this case, the wind and rain actually worked in our favor. 
The session was so inspiring. 
I love maternity sessions always.  
I hope to continue to push both myself and my clients to
create breathtaking photos like these in 2012.
Undoubtedly one of my favorite sessions of 2011.
Thanks for such a memorable session Lauren!
