This little guy was so sweet, and his family was utterly adorable. He was 8 days old when we photographed his newborn session, and he slept peacefully the entire time I was there. He had a beautiful head full of dark hair (I adore it when babies have lots of hair – all three of my babies were born bald!). His daddy is in the U.S. Air Force, so we incorporated dad’s hat into the session. He was so teeny that he fit right inside the hat! I also loved his airplane-themed nursery.

Congratulations to mom, dad and big sister! Here are some of my favorites from your session.

One of the most frequently asked questions I hear when someone schedules a family portrait session is, “What should we wear for our session?” I’m hoping this will help.

Spring and summer are coming up fast! I know it doesn’t feel that way right now since it’s only February, and winter is lingering on here in Ohio, but it will be here before we know it! I wanted to share an idea for coordinating great outfits for your family session for the spring or summer. I will also show you how this look translates to a real family session by showing you one of my own family’s images! This color scheme looks especially great with the green grass and golden light of spring and summer.

Some of our pieces are slightly different from the ones above, but I used this idea to dress us for our outdoor sunset session. For my family, I started with the dress for myself.  I found a dress that was comfortable and made me feel good. It’s okay to work with bold colors and patterns, as long as you don’t have too many conflicting patterns causing a jumble. I took the colors for everyone else’s outfits from the colors in the pattern of my dress. I knew I wanted my baby girl to be wearing pink, since she’s our GIRL (and these are our first family pictures with a girl), so I put the boys in all of the other colors that were in the pattern of my dress.  And here is what our finished result looks like (aren’t we adorable?! haha):

I had SO MUCH FUN with this family session in their home right before Christmas. The boys were 2.5 years old and 6 months old. We read books, crawled in a teepee, played Peek-a-Boo, and even went outside in the falling snow. This family was a blast, and we wore those boys out! We ended the session with both of them conking out for a nap – the perfect end to a perfect session.

My Claire-Bear is one year old. Here is an excerpt from our baby girl’s first year. There are a lot of pictures, but there are dozens and dozens more that I didn’t post. The first picture in the chair on the left was taken at 10 days old, and the one on the right was taken on her birthday.

How did we get from this…. to that?











Her first steps in October…


These last two were taken on her birthday…


Happy Birth Day to my sweet Claire. I love you, now and always, no matter what.

This baby girl was so adorable. It was obvious that her mommy loves her, and she loves her mommy. She didn’t know what to think of me at first, but I played Peek-a-boo with her for a bit, and she warmed up to me pretty fast. It was cold and rainy outside, but we had a blast during her indoor 6-month session. Look at her rosy cheeks and gummy smile!
