Cutie patooties! {Kingsville Child Photographer}







Seriously, these kiddos could not have been any cuter! I told mom I wanted to pinch her little guy’s cheeks and I am definitely not what I would consider a “pincher” … LOL. They were so energetic and full of life, so good at just being “kids.”
In fact, one of my absolute favorites is #2 – that was a stunning result of them messing around and actually not doing what I asked. Are you kidding me?! Gorgeous. I love setting kids up and then watching them play together … waiting for that special moment to capture is so thrilling to me! And I think the resulting portraits are always my favorites … seeing those relationships frozen forever … oh it’s just perfect.
Thanks Mom for giving me the opportunity to photograph your beautiful babies – I had so much fun! It was such a pleasure to finally meet you after almost a year of chatting back and forth! I think our results were worth the wait 🙂

Natural beauty {Baltimore Child Photographer}





Mel, her daughter, and I met at Sherwood Gardens yesterday morning to celebrate little lady’s 5th birthday! I still can’t believe that several years have passed since the first time I photographed her! She just gets more beautiful each time I see her – especially with those crystal clear blue eyes, beach blonde hair and glowing tan – wow what a natural beauty!
And of course, it’s always such a treat to work with Mel of Mel’s Crocheted Creations also! She is a great friend and I just adore all of her handmade one-of-a-kind crocheted accessories! If you haven’t seen me write about her and *still* haven’t visited her site, you are totally missing out!
Thanks Mel and Miss Gloria for another super-fun, extra-girly session! Can’t wait to show you the rest! And PS – I posted that first image on my Facebook page in color but I think it’s more stunning in black & white … thoughts?

Mine {Kingsville Child Photographer}

I am, indeed, blessed enough to be able to call this little guy “mine.” I fell in love with this image a few weeks ago, back when I shot it at Jerusalem Mill. It was one of those spur-of-the-moment, lifestyle shots … I called his name and he turned around with the most angelic smile on his face. His eyes pierce right through my heart every time he looks at me. Ahhhhh, total mama bliss 🙂
And because I have had *SO MANY* rain reschedules for my most recent sessions (a big WOW on the amount of rain April has given us!!), I haven’t had much activity on the blog … so I though I’d share this one of Ryan. Let’s hope all of these April showers really do bring big, gorgeous May flowers!

Meet my nieces! {Kingsville Child Photographer}








My nieces were in town from Wisconsin this week – what better way to celebrate than with a girly-girl, sister session?! I think you can see that we had … ummm … a total BLAST! They were so much fun. I just love their personalities – all 3 so different and absolutely amazing in their own way. You can see the love beaming from them for each other … I just adore that. So special. I hope they look back on these portraits one day and remember that love. So sweet. It was really special for me to capture all of their girly-ness … lots of giggling, hugging, tickling and funny faces. I think it helped that we made Dad stay back in the car 🙂

Faces of the 2010 Christmas {Mini-Sessions}

























This post sure is *LONG* overdue! LOL. I’m coming off of my mini-Thanksgiving break and really wanted to get these posted before sessions started up again!
I’m pleased to introduce you to all of my 2010 Christmas {mini-session} families! These kiddos are all so stinkin’ cute and I had so much fun with them! It was wonderful to see so many returning faces, but I also really enjoyed meeting some new ones too!
Merry Christmas!
