Reflections of a Toddler

Whenever I photograph a toddler, I know there will be some running around and also some sitting on the ground and flying through the air; lots of emotions (happy, sad, laughing, crying) – and all of these things will probably happen in a ten-minute window.

This little man filled our time together with all of the wonders and explorations of a toddler. He gave me so many expressions and so much joy.

Here are some of the photos of this completely sweet, wonderful family.

Thank you so much for letting me capture your beautiful family from the very beginning. It is my pleasure to watch it grow. Please find the rest of your session here.


Going Places

Zach is going places.

He’s going to the sky. In the pilot’s seat.

He’s going to a university to study.

He’s going far for sure.

Thank you Zachary for spending such a picture-perfect day with me and best of luck in your explorations and learning throughout your promising future. Please find the rest of your online album here.

Looking Ahead

I had the pleasure of recently photographing this handsome young man.

His school years are on the count-down side of nearing an end and of course, his thoughts are on the future.

He’s going places, I have no doubt at all.

I’m so very glad to have had the opportunity to get to know you, Sam. Please find the rest of your photos here.


A Girl and Her Horse

There’s something special between a girl and her horse. It is a bond that withstands time and proves to be a connection stronger than steel.

Watching this beautiful young lady and beloved horse, I could tell that connection exists for certain.

Happy senior year, Alena! Thank you for picking me to preserve your memories. Please find the rest of your images here.


Family in the Countryside

Family pictures usually include those people in groups with the closest connections. The session is wonderful, fun and calm.

There are generations. Grandparents smile in pride next to their grandchildren.

The photos often include moms and dads next to their children who are all-too-fast growing, changing, learning, and sometimes teaching us.

On occasion, the family pictures also include the special family members – and that’s when things literally go to the dogs! Literally.

This is my favorite of the family!

This is a family I am honored to know and to be able to photograph.

Please find the rest of your images here. Thank you always for your kindness.

Turning One in the World

When you are one year old, you may be little, but chances are good that you have very strong feelings about those important things in life.

Sports.  You love sports.  Specifically balls that roll and can be thrown.

You have that one special friend who goes everywhere with you…

…and who makes sure you are safe, warm, and have plenty of puppy kisses.

You have those really super special big people who hold you when you’re scared or tired, help you put your super stylish clothes on, feed you, and just really make you feel extra important all the time.

You love all of that for sure. Being one is so much fun!

But, when you are one, you maybe are not so in love with that gooey sticky feeling of frosting on your fingers.

And that’s ok because you’re super adorable.  Happy journeys little man.  I hope you enjoy your second year of life as much as your first.  Please find the rest of your photos here.
