...hurry down the chimney tonight

Isn't she little angel? Six week olds are not always the easiest age group to photograph, but this little gal was on her best behavior. We even managed to get her to rest on my little chimney. I now feel like all the effort I put into building and painting it is worthwhile!

Family Fun

Don't the little ones look adorable in their holiday best?

Home for the holidays

Despite the wintery chill, we were able to go outside and capture a little of the spirit of the holiday season with this extended family.

Young Photographer

This little gal loved my light meter and just didn't want to let go! Maybe it's a sign that she's going to take up photography when she's a little older... or maybe she's just a toddler who loves pressing buttons ;) She helped me take a lovely photo of her parents, and even let me take a few of her...

Family of 4

I had the opportunity to spend the afternoon with a wonderful family today. They were truly beautiful inside and out! We even had a special surprise visit from some relatives. What a wonderful way to spend a lovely Fall day.

I just had to share this little collage I made. It makes me smile :)

On Dasher and Dancer....

What a cutie this little guy is! He definitely kept me on my toes, as most little guys this age do, but despite his best efforts to the contrary, we managed to get some great captures ;) If you click on the images you can see the larger versions.

Going for a Ride in My Little Red Wagon...

I really love babies at this age, and I was excited to take some portraits of this beautiful little girl in my little red wagon. It reminds me of the song we used to sing at Gymboree "Going for a ride in my little red wagon, going to Gymboree...". Isn't she just the cutest?

Beautiful Closeups

This little girl has such beautiful eyes, I couldn't resist cropping in real closely. And what a sweet girl to work with. I had such fun with her and her mom and dad this morning.

Celebrating Adoption

As a photographer, my main goal is to provide people with photos of their children that they will cherish for a lifetime. As part of that goal, I volunteer for a few national charitable photography organizations, offering free services to qualifying clients.

I am honored to be a local photographer for an organization called "Celebrating Adoption", which helps provide portrait sessions for families who have adopted a child in the past year. The clients receive a free session fee, a set of up to 20 printed 4x6 proofs, as well as 20% off any additional prints, all donated by the photographer. While not an adoptive parent myself, I do know the joy of one of my family members when she was finally able to adopt a child after years of waiting. So I am honored that families will give me the opportunity to help capture their joy of celebrating adoption!
