I always love seeing the children I photograph grow and change over the years, and celebrating new milestones with these special families. I met the C family when I photographed their 2nd son for his First Communion, and it was a pleasure to meet all 4 boys in this family – check out the photos [...]
I had such a BLAST during this shoot. Love these two kiddos. Perhaps just as special as the kids’ sweet spirits was the mom’s kind comments after our session: The photographer, Gretchen Murcott, was amazing! She created a fun and comfortable atmosphere that made the kids open up immediately and revealed their true personalities. She [...]
Oh, I had such a fabulous time with this little guy. He was in a rush to meet his parents, and arrived up several weeks early. But although he have been born on the tiny side, his smile completely filled the room. And I’m guessing his abundant and crazy hair foreshadows a big personality! I [...]
Many times the reason I am asked to do professional headshots for someone is because they are about to be published and don’t have a head shot available to run with their article. These two attorneys are examples of that. I’m so proud to support their success with a portrait that is as professional as [...]
Happy Valentine’s Day! I am so filled with love today, and grateful for my wonderful family – which has recently grown by two beautiful babies, my son (now 4 months!) and my brand new niece. I couldn’t wait to take her pictures, and the timing was perfect to incorporate some Valentine’s love into the shoot. [...]
This little lady is multi-talented and pursues acting and modeling. I met her when we did headshot portraits last year. Because children change so quickly, her agent wanted her to have updated images, and I was excited to see her again. She makes a photo shoot lots of fun!
It’s always fun to see how big siblings respond to the new baby in the house, and this guy was so cute and excited! Just look at the sparkle in his eyes! And who wouldn’t be excited about such a sweet little baby? I loved how comfy he looked tucked into this great blue basket. [...]
I had the pleasure of meeting this little guy in the midst of the holiday season. Spending an afternoon with him was a sweet way to take a break from all the holiday madness! I was really excited when the mom requested a shot with the baby and a football, to surprise the daddy. The [...]
This family has become very special friends of ours, so I was thrilled when I heard they are going to have a second baby boy! Here is the big brother, back when he was just a few months old: And the newest little man – we loved all of these images so I created a [...]
I had the unique pleasure of creating professional headshots for a musician recently! Kathryn Prinz plays the flute — four sizes of the flute to be exact! — and also is one of the rare and few who plays the zither. Not only did I have fun styling, posing and lighting her with her instruments, [...]
