This kid! I love him more than words will ever be able to express. But, honestly, he is the most difficult person in the world for me to photograph. He either hams it up for the camera or runs in the other direction. But I still love photographing my little curmudgeon and always will. This is Jake at 3.5 years old – I want to always remember how obsessed he was with matchbox cars and how he tried to wiggle away from my kisses. But I still managed to capture that playful grin of his…
I was so excited to capture this moment
when my little guy was playing with the neighborhood kids. I’m really looking forward to spending more time playing in the street (it’s a dead end) now that the weather’s getting better. It makes me want to go back to my childhood…

Little Anthony cracks me up. He can be cool and casual one minute, then playful and energetic the next. He loves being in front of the camera, but he also makes you work for a shot. His personality is just too cute for words, which is why I love being able to capture it in pictures. I also loved seeing the little interactions between him and his parents, Brèona and Anthony. Aren’t they just so sweet? Here are some favorites from their session at Sunnybank in North Jersey.
The White Family could not have been more fun to work with! We met up in the middle of November at Deerwood Arboretum, a hidden gem in the hills of Brentwood, Tennessee. Little Miss Aubrey is the perfect blend of sweet and innocent with just a hint of mischievousness. You can see the joy she brings her parents, Jenny and Travis, and they are quick to make her laugh and flash that adorable smile. She held my hand as we walked and talked about her life in first grade. She told me about her puppy and her friends and her grandpa. She charmed me so effortlessly in the time we spent together. My camera loved her and her parents so much that I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites. Enjoy!
While in Chicago this past fall, I got to hang out with Sarah and her sister, Laura. Both of them are salt of the earth – being around them is like being with my own sisters. Laura was kind enough to let me practice taking maternity photos of her a few years back. Anyone who indulged me in those early photography days will always have a special place in my heart. It was fun to stop by her house again and see her gorgeous kids, Matthew and Abby, and her husband, Joe. We had ourselves an impromptu family photo session in the front yard that also featured sweet Aunt Sarah. Some of the best images are captured on an ordinary day when life is just happening as usual. The exceptions to the last sentence are the last two pictures. Sarah and Laura don’t typically lay in the grass to have a conversation, but they did it for me. And I’m so glad they did because these are some of my most favorite sister pictures ever!
