Rejuvenating one's soul

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life..." -Henry David Thoreau, WALDEN

Three words that describe you - Grateful: I am so grateful for the times of beauty and grace in my life. I am also grateful for the awareness I am cultivating to notice and appreciate them. Hopeful: My hopes are high for my future, and that of my family and friends. Staying positive is such a powerful tool. Approachable: I love when people connect with me and share parts of themselves. What a gift!

Welcome Miss G -

Sugar and spice
and all things that are nice
That’s what little girls are made of

Almost two years ago to the day I photographed this families 1st arrival, Miss H. Today, I met Miss G! What a lovely family Joyce and Michael have created. Miss G was so incredibly alert during our time together; it was such a treat to capture her expressions. Her older sister entertained me with her dancing and I may have gotten myself another photo assistant as Miss H really loved the workings of my camera. :) Prepare yourself for sweetness overload...

9 months old already!

A little child enters your life and fills a special place in your heart.
A place you never knew was empty.


Another 3 months have passed and Miss R is really mobile and exploring her world - Her older brother Mr L is growing up so fast too - "Hi Miss Amy", "Cheese", "Boats" - 

We broke up their 9th month session by shooting on location as well as more lifestyle coverage at home - These fleeting moments are just so precious!



And baby makes 4...

"Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero."  ~Marc Brown

Mr. C now has a baby sister and wow does she dig him! His smiles and silliness makes her giggle and chatter back at him in such a sweet way. Darling Miss C (yes, they both are C's!)  truly adores her big brother! 

I have been photographing this family for the last three years and being able to watch their family grow has been such a privilege. Time certainly goes fast, everyone tells you that. Documenting their  milestones and the simple joys of life, like riding the swing at the park, is something that I do not take for granted. Each time a session like this ends, I just smile!
