One of the first details I discuss with a client about our upcoming session is location. I have lots of great locations I love shooting at around the county. There is something perfect for every client. But when a client throws all my ideas aside and says, ‘I have something else in mind,’ well, I’ll admit, my heart starts racing and I get a little giddy. Like a kid who just got told they were going to the toy store. I absolutely love the thrill of showing up at a new spot and winging it. It really gets my adrenaline pumping and my creative juices flowing. We had so much fun, I was only a little disappointed when we realized the tree swings we were in search of were no longer there. But with trees to climb, waves to splash in, and seaweed to jumprope with, it was hard to stay sad for long.
Be sure you check out this cool shot, too!
this girl could not have been any sweeter. seriously, she was so mellow, and barely uttered a peep during the whole session. to say she was much easier to photograph than her brother was for his newborn session two years ago would be a huge understatement! sorry, buddy! but hey, she’s gonna have to step it up a notch to keep up with big bro!
Curious to know see what type of newborn shot will never get old to me? This one.
This sweet girl wanted nothing to do with me. or my camera. or sleeping. or being put down. but that’s ok by me. i had my way with her anyway, and was able to capture her mama and papa soaking in all her newborn goodness. and that’s what matters. and i’m pretty sure that, if they didn’t already know, her parents know exactly who’s the boss now. ;)
Remember those awesome clients I mentioned that keep coming back for more? well, here are some more of them. I’ve known them since there was only one little girl. one of my favorite images i ever captured is of her. turns out it is one of their favorites too. love when that happens!

for another fun shot from our session!
i have a group of clients who have stood by me for years. they have seen my best work, and some of my worst. they have been my clients in good years, bad years, and everything in between. they watched patiently as i learned to navigate the digital world, after holding onto film for so long. they have provided the foundation for my business for nearly 15 years! these girls’ “grammie” is one of those wonderful people. she has entrusted me to capture her growing grands for years. and, though this was my first time meeting this branch of the family tree, it felt like i had known them much longer. i hope their mama enjoyed watching her beautiful girls play as much as i did!
