Home is wherever I'm with you

Have I mentioned how much I love photographing twins? It’s probably one of my favorite things. Watching one calm down immediately after setting the other one next to them will never cease to amaze me! These two were absolutely adorable and did so good for their session! Even their puppy siblings did a great job. […]

A few weeks after we did her mama maternity sessions at the beach (view that session HERE!), Kaia made her appearance. We did her session on day 17, which is a little bit older than what I normally shoot at. But she was an absolute dream for her session! Kaia means Ocean in Hawaiian, so […]

This sweet girl was one of my favorite sessions of 2018! She was such a little doll, and had lots of smiles for the camera! Because her name was Ivy, I wanted to do some sort of vine/floral setup. This is one of my favorite photos from this past year. She was a great little […]
