When Michelle told me she wanted to talk about Zach's senior photos is was ECSTATIC! Michelle and I worked together and I knew we would have so much fun planning for and participating in this session. Seniors are one of my favorite session types to photograph! Getting to customize each senior's session based on their interests, hobbies and goals is so much fun for me. They were totally up for using my location ideas and they came in with some ideas of their own (which I love!
I had the CRAZY honor of being present for an adoption hearing and capturing family images afterwards. I cannot even begin to express the emotions I felt, watching this obviously loving, kind family be given PERMANENT custody of two children they had been fostering. Having been a nurse in Pediatrics for 5 years, I watched my share of heartache where children were involved. Abuse, neglect, abandonment, even watching a child be physically removed from their parents custody in t
I have to tell you, I am in AWE of this Mama! She has a gorgeous 4 year old and twin 1 year olds -- who were born UNASSISTED at home (WOW!) She has breastfed twins for an entire year! It takes such selflessness to breastfeed. Not only did she dedicate and sacrifice her body to growing a child, or in this case TWO, for 10 months but then dedicated over a year of her life to nourishing her children with the best possible nutrition. Spending time in the presence of true selfless
Piper is literally THEE sweetest babe. When her Mama said she wanted an outdoor Sophia the First themed smash session, I was all about it! She thought the ice cream was alright, but her real love was the cheese puffs <3 <3
I'm not going to lie. I live for the moments in between. You know, the small, seemingly insignificant moments in between the BIG moments. The ones we always remember. Our engagements, our weddings, or the birth of a child. I think these moments deserve just as much space in our minds and hearts as the big moments. A child picking flowers? The 1,000th hug of the day from your child. Dancing with your partner. I believe in capturing real, unwavering emotion. It's where my heart
Breastfeeding to me isn't simply the supply of amazing nutrients, its all about the connection. Now before I offend anyone, I fully support #fedisbest! I have breastfed and formula fed and I love my children wholly You do you. You feed your baby in the best way you can. Here is my story: My daughter never figured out the whole latching thing so she got formula from pretty much the beginning and guess what? She's perfect! She's smart and beautiful, inquisitive and loves to lea
Confidence is such a HUGE part of Boudoir. It can make or break a session. When you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin, it shows and brings a level of beauty and sensuality to the images that you never would have imagined was possible. Ever heard "Fake it til you make it"? That totally applies here. This beautiful woman exudes so much confidence in front of the camera its unreal. I am so excited to preview her images to you!
When you get the opportunity to photograph someone as beautiful, both inside and out, as Jordan, you do it! Boudoir to me, is not about nudity, oversexualizing woman or impressing men. It is about all the things that encompass womanhood -- vulnerability, feminism, beauty, strength. There is so much more to women that what meets the eye. The camera captures your inner beauty that you allow to shine through.
