This little guy has a special place in my heart. I’ve gotten the opportunity to photograph him since he was tucked away in his mama’s womb. I got to photograph his birth. And his milestone sessions. And now this sweet boy is ONE. Oh, what a joy it is following my clients and getting to […]

After a long winter in the Midwest this maternity session was just what my soul needed! The trees were on their final week of blooms at the arboretum and the sweet scent that filled the air was magical.

The Johnson Family

Slugs and snails and puppy-dogs’ tails; that’s what little boys are made of.  These two had me on my toes and offered lost of laughs during their session!  I had the best time watching these two brothers interact.  Aren’t they handsome?!
