We found out that my little sister was having a baby really early on...like only 4 weeks along. So, to everyone (including her)...it felt like she was pregnant FOR.EV.ER. When Ian finally arrived (a week late) it was cause for great celebration...and a photo shoot.
Seriously, he is such a good baby...but at 8 days old he would not sleep for me. He kept a constant watch on the camera, inspecting it, analyzing it, storing away that information in his little baby brain. Regardless, we got some cute photos of the newest family member!
Meet Ian...he gets his flair for the dramatic from me (see 2nd picture)

I really enjoyed my Sunday morning session with the Frymyer family in the studio. Maddie with her tiara and Jack with his big blue eyes made for some pretty awesome photos. I love the colors in these photos...the bright purple, yellow, and green...it feels like spring to me!
want some photos of your family...email me!

My dear friends Brett + Julie had twins last year and now they are 1! It is so hard to believe that the past year has flown by and those teeny tiny babies are moving around, full of big smiles for the camera, and eating cake!!
Brett + Julie...you must be so proud of these big 1 year old that you have!

Katy & Alex were set-up by my sister-in-law, unbeknowst to either of them. When everyone else left the party and insisted that the two of them stay and get to know one another...they had a light-bulb moment.
But hey...it worked and here they are expecting a baby boy in just a few days.

My favorite face from March...no doubt.
Meet my new nephew...feeling a bit sleepy at only 8 days old.

One year ago I had the pleasure of photographing baby Jack and his lucky mom and dad as they just started out as a new family. A few weeks ago I was able to capture Jack again (as he turned 1) as well as his cousins and family visiting from Canada.
This is one of my favorite images from that morning. Everyone's eyes were so focused on the camera and the way that Jack was playing with his cousin's hair. So cute!
Hockey fans in 'da house (uhh...studio)
Love, love, love this shot. Yes, I do.

This week's iheartfaces photo challenge is entitled: Slice of Life. To me, this image certainly captures what an everyday moment in life can be. Last week, one of my great friends needed a babysitter for her twins and I gladly volunteered my help. This little guy was just exploring all the toys in his play area, maybe wondering why he wasn't at daycare, certainly interested in the big camera focused on him. But in the end, he went about the business of a 1 year old: playing, eating, sleeping, living the good life.

At 36 weeks pregnant, my little sister has never looked so beautiful. She came to me at 36 weeks for some photos to document the little bump that is my future nephew.
The first photo is my version of Pacing the Panic Room's maternity series.
This is my favorite photo of her...ever.
Baby Ian, we can't wait to me you!

Since it's Thursday. Since Winter is back and I don't know what coat to wear. Since I have a lot on my mind. Here is a list...a list of lovely things.
I have a new nephew...he's 2 days old and I'm in love. Pictures soon!!I can't get this song out of my head...and this is my favorite version. Love it EVERY.TIME.
This photo is killing me...and I wouldn't mind owning the hat either. I'm a sucker for a silly hat.
Netflix streaming on my ipad is AWE.SOME. Watched Kings of Pastry last night in bed. Yes I did. What should I watch next? I'm thinking this.
Made these for dinner last night. Yum. (tuna, tartar sauce, and green onion options)
I have a date with my hubby tonight. Dinner and a movie! Must use our Groupon before it expires (today!!)
Looking forward to seeing him live this summer. 3 times. (looking forward to is a gross understatement)
I'm trying to learn Twitter. Am I the only one who is confused? Who should I follow?
If we ever have kids I'm going to aim for a Fall birthday. All of my 8 nieces/nephews were born between Feb 27th and May 21st. Even weirder 2 of them share a birthday (9 years apart), 2 are only 1 day apart (the same year), and 2 are 2 days apart (4 years between them). Does this happen in anyone else's family?
Do you read this blog? You should. I don't know them, but I want to.

Not 1 or 2...but 3 of the most adorable kids on the planet live next door to us. And if you've read this blog before, you've probably seen their pictures 1 or a few times. Last summer...a snowy winter day...I'm already trying to make them sign a contract for senior and wedding photos on these kids :)
First is Maija. Creative, kind, and always helpful. She always has a wave and "hi" for us over the fence.

Photographing children in general can be quite the test of patience and stamina. Photographing 2 brothers is a whole 'nother ballgame. They are little balls of energy bouncing from couch to floor, hiding from the camera, messing with their clothes, tackling, screaming, you name it. These brothers were all boy and it took them a while to warm up to me (and the camera). By the end of our session the boys were worn out, I was sweaty and tired, but the photos made it all worth it. Adam + Wes, I'd gladly chase you around the studio any day!
