family at the beach

Sorry I haven’t written in a few days, but we went to the west coast over the weekend and now I have to get back into the swing of things.  I’ll post some photos from the beach over the next few days.  Meanwhile, I photographed the S family the other day at the beach and had a great time.  Everyone was very laid back and playful, so we were able to get some very fun shots.  A and N are sweet children who actually like playing with each other – which is so nice to see. 

Also, check out their cute clothes!









spelling bee

On a personal note, today, my nine year old son Jake, won the third grade spelling bee at  his school.  I didn’t expect it to be so exciting, but it really was!  When the contest got down to the last two children, we got pretty nervous.  The greatest part (that made me cry!), was that Jake had been so extremely serious during the entire contest, but when he won, he threw his arms up in the air like Rocky.  It was priceless!



beautiful butterfly

I have been lucky enough to have photographed S since she was 3.  She has grown into such a beautiful girl and I was so happy to see her and her mom again recently.  We had a lot of fun at the beach with different outfits, but it was the butterfly wings that really made her shine.  I love her eyes and her beautiful, flowing hair.  Her mom is very creative also, so we always have so much to talk about when we get together.  Here are some of my favorites…





happy mother’s day

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day!  We barbecued and swam with all the kids and had a fun, relaxing day.  So, In honor of all the moms out there, I would like to offer a $50.00 discount to the first 5 moms who book a  photo session by the end of this week, May 16th.  So, if you would like to book a session (maybe for Father’s Day!), just give me a call and we’ll set something up!
