This baby bump session is extra special to me because this beautiful mama-to-be is my cousin. Kasey and Josh are expecting their very first baby boy in late May and I just couldn’t wait to get my lens on that belly! So many loving arms are waiting for the arrival of this sweet bundle of joy.

Eby {mini}

A springy senior mini-session in the Valley sunshine is a great way to spend a Saturday morning. This young gal is soon to be college bound and I can see a future in her as bright as her eyes and smile. bsomeIMG_9405 bsomeIMG_9407 bsomeIMG_9428bw bsomeIMG_9431bsomeIMG_9445 bsomeIMG_9454bw bsomeIMG_9478 bsomeIMG_9499 bsomeIMG_9520bwbsomeIMG_9438SMALL_EBY064 bsomeIMG_9560

Jenner Family {mini}

When I asked Rachel to say something to make Andrew laugh, she uttered “explosive diarrhea” without skipping a beat. Ok, it’s like that. And it worked – we all laughed. Except for Alexander who sat comfortably in his freshly changed outfit with a look of guilt across his face. What a sweet little laundry maker.

Rachel and Andrew invited me into their home to spend some time with them, their sweet dog, Foster, and their new baby boy, Alexander.  I love love holding a session in someone’s home. I’ve been a guest in the Jenner house many times but never for the purpose of photography…and that changes things.  I love seeing the way people live, unapologetically, on a day-to-day basis. I love the way coats rest and dish towels hang and blankets are tossed and plants bask in the sun. I love the smells. The sounds. The light. And on this particular occasion, the baby and his furry big brother were pretty easy on the eyes too.bsomeIMG_3818 bsomeIMG_3817 bsomeIMG_3821 bsomeIMG_3823 bsomeIMG_3825bw bsomeIMG_3826 bsomeIMG_3833bsomeIMG_3839 bsomeIMG_3837bwbsomeIMG_3848bw bsomeIMG_3846bw bsomeIMG_3843 bsomeIMG_3844 bsomeIMG_3849bsomeIMG_3851 bsomeIMG_3855 bsomeIMG_3859bw bsomeIMG_3863 bsomeIMG_3864 bsomeIMG_3856bsomeIMG_3878 bsomeIMG_3866cbw bsomeIMG_3868 bsomeIMG_3873bsomeIMG_3892 bsomeIMG_3895 bsomeIMG_3882 bsomeIMG_3893 bsomeIMG_3894bw bsomeIMG_3938bsomeIMG_3935bw bsomeIMG_3917 bsomeIMG_3922bsomeIMG_3921bsomeIMG_3932c bsomeIMG_3923 bsomeIMG_3909bwbsomeIMG_3946bw bsomeIMG_3949bsomeIMG_3954 bsomeIMG_3957 bsomeIMG_3965

Jody & Ava

It’s always a pleasure photographing parents with their children. There’s a love and a happiness that you couldn’t pose if you tried. It’s natural and real…and it makes my job super easy. This natural connection is exactly what I see through my lens when I photograph Jody and Ava. There’s never a dull moment with these two gals. They play off of each other in a way that keeps me chuckling behind my camera.  This particular shoot involved a “nature walk” (as Jody calls it), bugs, humidity, a big fat rabbit, blue lights (ahem), CrossKeys Vineyard (unrelated to the blue lights), and a juicy burger from Jack Brown’s Single Wide. Pretty much an awesome Sunday evening.

Baby B

This baby might be the cutest baby I’ve seen (…since my own two of course…) in real life. This kid’s got the look. I was thrilled to join Kelsey and Megan soon after the birth of their baby boy for some shots that will memorialize this tiny human and all his preciousness. What a gift he is and will continue to be.
