The Leake Family

I met this sweet family in our neighborhood parent's network, Grant Park Parent's Network. I've had the joy to see their son, Alex, and my daughter grow up together in this past year. It's incredibly special to have a group of moms to connect with and feel like you are not alone in this new thing called, Parenthood. I am so grateful for this group and the amount of friends I have gained. 

I had so much fun with this special family. We got to twirl, pick flowers, jump, and blow some bubbles. It was a perfect way to start the month of May. :) 

Javier Sebastian Diego

Seeing how a newborn baby can create so much harmony and love between a family and being able to capture these moments, truly fills my heart with so much gratitude and joy. Javier Sebastian Diego came to the world on February 10, 2015. Big brother, August, is pretty excited to have this new role in the family. 

Season of Gratitude + A Sweet Family Season

For me, Thanksgiving is a time for family, a time to reflect on our life, a time to give thanks, and a time to count our blessings. I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who I have encountered this year. Thank you for inspiring me in every way possible, even if it was a small gesture like a smile. I am so grateful for every moment I have experienced…even the bad moments. Thank you to my amazing, wonderful, and loving clients. I feel so lucky to have captured a moment in your life. Thank you to my family and caring husband…without you, I would not be the person who I am today. Your endless love and support fills my heart with pure joy. This sweet family session has a place in my heart. I have been lucky enough to capture the most important moments of their lives together. For this, I am so grateful. When they asked me to photograph their first family portrait, I instantly smiled and said OF COURSE! :)


The Brown Family

This beautiful family simply makes my heart melt! I've had the privilege to photograph this couple's love story…first with their Engagement, their Maternity, Elijah's newborn photos, Elijah at 6-months, and now they are pregnant with their second child! The four of us spent Sunday afternoon enjoying the first weekend of  the summer at a beautiful park called McDaniel Farm Park... a hidden gem, tucked away in plain sight. As they walked through the trails and discovered the barns, I followed along capturing the "in-between moments"…the laughter, and the love they have for each other.
