Newborn + a cute little park

This sweet little guy was one week old when I got to meet him. I hadn't seen his family in awhile, and due to that thing where Facebook doesn't show you posts from very many of your friends, I didn't even know that they were expecting. What a fun surprise!

They have this cute little park across the street, and there was this one little spot of afternoon shade. It worked!

As usual I enjoyed using my Baby Backdroplet. So easy to put together and pack up. And I love that it's reduced the amount of stuff I take with me by half. More info here: http://brightlightcreate.com

I loved getting to see this family again - thanks so much to them for inviting me for baby portraits on this lovely occasion!

The three sweetest children you've seen all day

I first met this family ten years ago when their first son was born. They have been such a delight to photograph and get to know over the years!

Could these three be any more sweet? I think this is one of my favorite portraits of the year.

Or maybe this one.

The baby was so sweet for family portraits, then drifted off peacefully for his own. Sometimes babies really make it easy for me (thank you!).

Thank you so much for his family, for trusting me with your baby and family photography through the years! It has been such an honor and a  pleasure!

Congratulations to an amazing graduate!

Senior portraits. Maybe my favorite kind of photography. And this is one of my favorite girls. I could gush for pages - I've thought so much of her ever since she was a sweet third grader with a backpack full of rocks and silly bands, sharing her treasures (and her lunch) with my kids and anyone else she thought they would help.

I can't really believe she just graduated, but time has marched on since these days and she obviously has grown up so beautifully.

But she's not just gorgeous. She will always stand up for someone who needs it. She's still generous. And she's crazy smart. Like, smart enough to win city-wide spelling bees in middle school without studying.

And I remember the day when she went down the waterslides at the pool something like 83 times, racing my little daughter, just to make her happy. Who does that???

And, we went out with the camera a few times. Obviously I had a hard time narrowing my blog post down to just a few favorites. Professional portrait of a beautiful high school senior girl
