April & Jake

One of the many things I love about being a photographer  is I get to be a part of so many special memories ! Even wilder, I’m a big sister to some pretty amazing humans. My sister April got engaged a few weeks ago and I had the honor of capturing their first (of many photos in the future) Cheers to the future you two love birds, Love ya

Life: Family

Have you ever thought about having a session in your kitchen or living room ? This adorable family did, and the moments we captured are unforgettable!  Take a look at this sweet growing family and maybe it will make you rethink your next family session.

This kitchen was gorgeous and it was all done with love by Luke (dad) in the photos. He is an exceptional craftsman and if I ever build a house,  he will be the first person I call.

 

Smile,

Amber Joy

Senior: Joshua

Can you tell that these photos were taken around  6:30ish in the MORNING ?

I will say waking a sleeping teenager is no joke. You could say  I know this handsom guy pretty well… He is after all my kid brother. I remember when he was a cute little tot with chubby little cheeks that the entire family loved to squeeze, and now look at the great young man he’s grown into.  I’m really proud of him,  I can’t wait to see where life takes this smart, independent and strong willed kid (sorry, you will always be my little bro even if you’re taller than me! ) haha

He’s going to make WAVES in this world just wait and see !  Enjoy these epic shots. You’ll see that he’s a sweet and genuine person who has a hilarious sense of humor to boot. Love you Bub ❤

SIDE NOTE…..  he’s not too shabby with a camera (with the camera strap SECURELY around his neck) I let him snag a few pics of me and he  let me take a few spins on his long board.  I almost fell to my death, but I’m glad I got to spend some time together !!

Heather & Mya

I’m so excited to finally have this lovely lady in front of my camera, she is a NATURAL beauty and it wasn’t hard capturing her gorgeousness ! Mya her sweet and sassy  horse was a hoot.  I don’t think I’ve ever had a horse fully cooperate with me on a shoot but she did pretty splendidly considering all the delicious hay I was keeping  from her. Heather was a dream and such a natural in front of the camera, I hope this isn’t the last time I photograph her ! Without and further delay check out the awesome shots we got tonight !!

Corrigan Turns 1

This little boy is one of the sweetest I know, He even shared his cake with his mama! His infectious smile and giggle can turn anyones day around. His mom and dad are doing a great job raising him.  I’ve know Corrigans mama for quite some time and I”m glad to call her my friend, She has been quite the inspiration through all the struggles life brings of juggling work, school and family time. This lady has done it all and has even been there when I needed someone to talk to on my long trek to Albany. Her dedication to her little family has no comparison and I wanted to take a minute to give her a little shout out.

Samantha, you are kind and understanding and you see the best in others. You sacrifice so much for your little boy and it doesn’t go unnoticed, you are an inspiration and I’m so proud you have chosen me to be your family /life/ everything in between photographer and friend. I look forward to capturing many more memories with you and your loves ! Keep up the good work, you’re an amazing lady, one hot mama and loyal friend. Im glad to know you!

Lillian Turns 1

Babies are my favorite, that is no secret, but what is even more special is when I get to watch them grow. I feel like sweet Lillian was just in my arms as I wrapped her and put her in a basket as a newborn, and now she has grown and has turned a WHOLE year old! I’m so excited to share in this special milestone Happy Birthday Lillian ! Great things are in store for this sweet little lady, and I look forward to watching her grow up.

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others, For beautiful lips speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone”  – Audrey Hepburn

I have known this beautiful lady for more years than I can count and I was so honored when she reached out to me  to capture her with her sweet love.  I have seen many connections throughout my years of photography but none have been as true and as raw as these. I’m so happy they are together because you can see they just fit.

THANK YOU

Friebil Family

When Caitlin contacted me about family photos I was  very flattered. We have known each other almost half of our lives thus far ( thats over 13 years) for the mathematically challenged 😉 She now has her own little family and a sweet hubby to boot. They came down from the north country where it snows more than I’d prefer. I photographed her daughter when she was just a few days old. Let me tell you it is a weird feeling seeing a childhood friend ushered into motherhood, and watching Caitlin has been a wonderful joy She’s an amazing artist and homemaker and has truly shown the world her kindness. Anyone would be fortunate to have her in their lives. I also had the opportunity at their session to meet some of her extended family and let me tell you they all are one GOOFY bunch. You will see that captured in this little sneak I am sharing with you now.

Enough about me going on tangents I won’t have you  wait any longer.

Thank you all for letting me capture your quirky and adorable personalities in all varieties 🙂
