Jackson | 2 years

Pin It

Having Remington in our lives has been a blessing in so many ways!  Just two short hours after Remington was born, so was this adorably sweet and handsome guy, Jackson!  His beautiful mom, Lynne, and I met within a few weeks after they were born and learned that not only were they born on the same day, but that they are just two hours apart!  We like to say that they became friends while in the nursery together!  It has been so fun growing our friendship and seeing our boys become friends over the past two years!  A week before his 2nd birthday, we met up on a beautiful evening for some portraits to capture this super-fun, spunky, and sweet toddler!  Friends and family can view his entire online gallery here.  Happy 2nd Birthday, Jackson!!!  

Ohhhh, this sweet little face!!!  A favorite!

And this one…seriously, Jackson, you are beyond adorable!

A is for Apple!  Jackson loves apples!

Jackson thought he saw his pup, Owen, off in the distance…;)

There is just something about this image that I adore…I think it's his seriously sweet expression.  
Lynne and Eric, you have a little heartbreaker on your hands!

Did I mention that we had wonderfully golden light?  
That I didn't want to leave this perfect little spot that we had found? 
And that no matter what Jackson did with this tricycle, I loved it?

Love this! 

Lynne, you said how much you love his smile…I couldn't agree with you more! 

Jackson is always up for adventure!  Climbing and walking on these giant rocks was so fun!

Those blue eyes!!!

He was fascinated with the mechanics of the vintage tricycle.

Jackson, you sure are one handsome kiddo!  
Thank you so much for sharing your evening with me! 
See you soon!

Maternity Announcement | Leah + Daniel

Pin It

As we strolled around the gorgeous grounds of the IMA during their engagement session, they told me they'd be contacting in a few years for family photos.  Their wedding day was one that I'll never forget. It was beautifully perfect from beginning to end.  A few months back, I received a phone call from Leah.  I had a feeling that I knew what she was going to tell me, and I was hoping so much that I was right!  I got chills as she told me that she and Daniel were expecting their first child in December!  If you're lucky enough to know these two, you know that they are going to make amazing parents!  They are genuinely sweet, kind, warm, and witty.  Just cool people with the biggest of hearts.  Sharing the joys of life side by side with their new little one will be so very special.  With the threat of rain and the insanely hot and humid temperatures the day of their session, we opted to stay cool in the studio for their maternity announcement photos.  And I cannot wait for their maternity session coming up later this fall!  Leah and Daniel, I am SO excited for the two of you!  What an honor it is to document this next season - truly an extraordinary and magical one - in your lives!  I cannot wait to see you soon for your maternity session!


You two are so cute!

And Baby Wirkk, I cannot wait to meet you in a few short months!!! You are already loved so much!

Brian + Heather + Emily

Pin It

I've been so excited to share this adorably sweet session!  I met Heather and Brian for the first time at their maternity session, and it has been such an incredible honor to photograph them since then.  Emily Claire is their gorgeous daughter, and she recently celebrated her 4th birthday!  Just how is that possible!?  Emily's sparkling blue eyes and curly blonde hair shined even brighter in the glow of the amazing evening light that we had on this sunny late summer day.  Friends and family can view their entire online gallery here.  Enjoy some favorites from our time together!

Doesn't she have the cutest outfit?  

Love both of these!

Heather, you are so pretty!  And I love that dress of yours!

I adore all of Emily's faces…especially that sweet expression on the right.  


Those eyes!  

Favorite. Favorite, favorite, favorite.

Brian, Heather, and Emily, thank you so much for sharing your evening with me!  Your family
is just a joy to photograph, and I cannot wait to see you all again!  Happy 4th Birthday, Emily Claire!
