The lashes on this sweetheart are incredible! And his pouty lips and kissable cheeks…I am sure they are kissed…A LOT! He was so good for his whole session that I just couldn’t stop photographing him! Which resulted in so many amazing photos that I had to edit them all. I was excited to see the items his parents brought for the session, especially since we’re a Detroit Tigers house! And I think they worked out just perfect 🙂
Talk about a wonderful family! Gosh. I just have the best job. I get to meet such amazing people, families and children! (and so cute too!)
Mr S was so enthralled with the sand and the grass that I had to work my toosh off to get him to give me a glance or two! I loved just watching him explore and feel new textures and see new things- it’s one of the best things about being a parent. Their inquisitive nature and wonder of all life really makes you sit and think about all the beauty around us that we take for granted and see right through. Our daily lives just consume us that we forget how much beauty and good there is in this world around us. This little guy certainly reminded me of that.
How gorgeous are they?!
Miss T was such a sweetheart! Which comes as no surprise since her parents are just about the nicest couple you could meet. I met them a while back when I photographed them for their maternity session and I just LOVED watching how loving and caring dad was about his beautiful wife and the look of excitement on both their faces when they spoke about their baby girl. Little Miss T was so soft and sweet and squishy and just the perfect picture of love with her mama and papa. Her beautiful little lips are just something I couldn’t stop staring at with every photo I went through – comes as no surprise because her family is just full of beautiful people! (inside and out!)
And to top it off, when her parents came to pick up their disc, they dropped off a present for me and my upcoming baby girl! Could they get any sweeter?
It’s always so special to see how excited people are when they contact me to schedule a shoot. I typically recommend to schedule the newborn session when mama-to-be is 18-22 weeks along, occasionally I will get a family who contacts … Continue reading →
A “few” years ago when I was in highschool, I was lucky enough to meet and be friends with a great, fun group of people (well, I guess depends who you ask will determine if it was “lucky” haha). Recently one of these highschool friends contacted me about photographing her daughter. I hadn’t spoke with her in a number of years so I was very excited to see her again, catch up but more importantly photograph her little one. And oh. Em. Gee. Was her daughter a doll! She was the perfect model for me and I wanted to kiss and snuggle her all day long! Her smile was infectious and so, so, so sweet!
It was so great to be able to catch up with her mama, meet her papa and of course, photograph her. Six months is one of my favourite ages, so smiley and happy over everything. I just loved her! I hope to see her again soon….it was a great day!

We are blessed with a big family. A big loving family. I, myself, have 9 nieces and nephews. NINE! And 6 of them are under the age of 2!
My baby sister has 2 sons and in 2014 she welcomed a little girl in the family! In the beginning she looked identical to her oldest brother but over the months she has changed and now Lili is a spitting image of my sister when she was little. I almost can’t believe how identical they look. It’s incredible. And she is a happy baby. She recently modeled some items for me for a local vendor, so before everyone else arrived we plopped her little bum down and took a few of her by herself. Aside from her sweet little cheeks and smile, my favourite part of this first photo is that darn sweet little tooth! Ack. So cute. My little chunker. My sister has always made the fattest little breastfed babies!~
Mr I has been coming to see me since he was in the womb! I photographed his gorgeous mama and papa while they were still pregnant, and just 5 days later Mr I decided to make a fairly early appearance! I have since seen him every 3 months for his First Year photoshoots. I cannot believe that we have only 1 more left! He is such a happy boy, he has captured my heart and gets me more and more each time I see him! I’m going to be quite sad after his next (and last) shoot. My my, how quickly one year passes!
A couple months ago I shot this beautiful mama and papa-to-be in the beauty of their pregnancy. I was so excited for when these two little girls would make their appearance as I could not wait to get them in … Continue reading →
I’ve never been one to be able to get my Christmas shopping done early (or even start early!) and my holiday season usually entails last minute shopping, rushing through the crowds trying to get in and out as fast as I could. If I started my Christmas shopping before December 10th, it was an early, early start!!! Although I love crowds, I must admit, and shopping like this appeals to me. I like watching others as they go about their holiday season shopping, I love watching everything about people, their expressions, their clothes, their families, the smiles as they find the perfect present. Lucky for me, it doesn’t stress me out to be at the “dreaded mall” during the holidays. I don’t even mind parking at the back of the lot!
And although I love this type of shopping, my shopping strategy changed with the birth of my 2nd daughter. She was not due until January 2011, and as much as I protested against having her early, making her a December baby, no one apparently told her! She arrived on December 29, 2010 adding to my already full birthday month of December. (My father’s is the 14th and even more lucky, my husband is born on Christmas day!)
This event changed my shopping strategy as I now had one more event needing my attention during the Christmas happiness. Even so, thinking of Christmas events during the month of October was something I never thought I would be doing! However, this year that is exactly what I did. I had many inquiries about doing Christmas photoshoots, long before I was actively thinking about the holidays. And so off I went to find Christmas props for my shoots and set them up in my home studio.
I must admit, that doing so has gotten me into the Christmas spirit much earlier and even looking forward to all the festivities. For the first time in my adult life, I have actively put on the radio channel playing Christmas music! Now I feel that Christmas is SO far away, but I’m in the mood!
I have another day of Christmas shoots but thought I would share some of these adorable little ones, it fills me with excitement to think about the joy and excitement they will be feeling on Christmas eve.
