This is one of those sessions where I just don’t know where to start. I traveled to Alaska for many different reasons. One of these was to photograph a few families. This was the third time that I photographed this family and the first time that Dan was able to come with me. He had seen past session photos. He had heard me tell stories. This time he got to meet them! When the little boy cries because you are leaving (well because Dan was leaving) and when you are editing the images you laugh and awww your whole way through, that’s when you remember…really remember why you do what… Keep Reading
Laura was my middle school volleyball coach – her daughters in school around the same time as me. I learned so much from her about volleyball, working hard, and life in general. She was always there and supportive. What a treasure it was to meet her grandkids and photograph them. How gorgeous is this backdrop? Bear Lake in the Seward Alaska area is incredible! When I pictured photographing families in Seward this is exactly the background I was hoping for. Wow! I think I should do travel sessions in Alaska more often! Enjoy this sneak peak guys!
I’ll try not to get too personal here… My big brother. Life has taken us to the far sides of the country. We try to keep in touch and thank goodness for social media! Life is busy. Life is crazy. Oh how I wish life got me to Oregon more often! When I found out that my brother was dating this amazing woman all I wanted to know was how can I meet her and what can I do to help?! They eloped to Hawaii and had the most gorgeous, personal wedding! I am so thrilled for them but as a traveling wedding and family photographer I ached to photograph this… Keep Reading
Samantha and I started texting back and forth in January. We chatted and met and planned her family’s session. She knew the perfect location and her sense of style is incredible. Of course the difficult thing with dreaming and planning out so far is you never know how kids will change. Will they still be napping, or will they at least nap that day? This family is AAAAmazing! Mom and Dad kept their cool during their family session at Wiawaka house in Lake George, NY no matter what the kids threw at them. Their little girl is gorgeous but looking at her Mamma, I wasn’t surprised! Her big brother gave us… Keep Reading

This is the first big play and first musical we have been a part of as a family. How lucky we were to work with such amazing people! It has been incredible to watch them work and grow and build this show in a relatively short period of time. The amount of work put into it and into the children is incredible and inspiring! We were honored to help the kids and a few of the adults with some new headshots. Check out Broadway Upstate’s website here. I can’t wait to see this cast in action at the Wood Theater here in Glens Falls, NY. You can check out show… Keep Reading
This boy holds a special place in my heart because his Mamma is so special to us. I was a new Mom, sending my oldest baby away to school for the first time. Everything was new for me. New school. New Teachers. New do’s and don’ts. I wasn’t too worried about my son with his outgoing personality but I was worried about me! A few particular teachers made all the difference. They loved him, taught him, and nurtured him. This Mamma is one of those who just helped me know that he was in good hands and put my mind to rest and eased my heart. It’s been a delight… Keep Reading
