I met with Jennifer and her family on a VERY chilly day! But we made it work!

On a side note – I am fully aware that photographing on tracks is not legal or safe. These tracks are purely decorative and lead to nothing – safe.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE those shots!

And – just to show you that it’s not always perfect!

Jennifer – thank you so much for asking me to photograph this BEAUTIFUL time in your lives!

I met Kelly when I was working at Phoenix – TEN YEARS AGO! I had a picture hanging up on the wall in the clinic – an older woman and her dog walking away from the camera – in Central Park. That picture stuck with her – and she emailed me about photographing their journey to parenthood!

She was due July 8th – and on June 24th – I got back in my car after a morning session to see a missed call from her. I called her back and her mom let me know that she was at 10 cm. I wouldn’t make it – but I could still come and do after the birth pictures. As fate would have it – Jared was off that day because he was playing in a golf tournament and then wasn’t need after all. I called Jared to let him know that I’d be going – and hopefully – making the birth!

I got there right before 11 – with no baby yet!

Kelly was SO calm.

I wasn’t able to be right up by her head for THE moment – but I did capture it!

A sweet baby girl!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE those shots!!

Kelly & Wade – thank you SO much for asking me to witness this MIRACULOUS time in your lives!

It was an absolute honor to capture her birth for you! I can’t wait to spend this next year watching her grow with you!

I was so excited when I got an email from Kelly – she remembered me from Phoenix – where I worked as the aide & secretary before leaving to pursue photography as my REAL job!

They were expecting a sweet baby and wanted to document everything!


Isn’t she BEAUTIFUL!

Stay tuned for their birth photos and newborn shots!!

Megan is a dear friend and fellow photog! We swap services when we need it – it’s a beautiful arrangement!

Speaking of – I took pictures of her sweet baby yesterday!!

They were expecting their second son in mid-March! He came into the world early in the morning on St. Patrick’s Day!


There’s a spot that I’ve been DREAMING about not far from our little town – Megan was totally up for trekking there – and trek we did!

Megan – I am SO happy for you and your family! *G* is a sweet boy! Stay tuned for his session soon!!

On Friday – the 26th – I got a call from Xavier – my sister’s husband – saying – COME NOW! Wait. What?

We figured it out – and Samm was being induced – so I hopped in the car and drove 3 hours to NJ. The boys and Jared stayed at my parents – which worked out wonderfully.

Samm progressed very slowly. We waited. And waited. And waited.

I went back to their apartment Friday night and slept – waiting for a phone call. When I got to the hospital Saturday morning – it had been a long night – but at least Samm was able to sleep. Saturday moved slowly – and by evening – I went back to the apartment – got ready to watch Doctor Who and eat some pizza – and a text came in. Come now – they are prepping her for a c-section!

And then the cries. Those sweet baby cries!

Isn’t he GORGEOUS!

He weighed a little over 8 lbs. Such a sweetie!


Samm had a rough recovery immediately after her c-section. It was a few hours before she was able to hold little Jack.

He was born at 8:48 in the evening on December 27th.

I went back to the apartment and slept. I knew I would have to leave by noon the next day – so I made sure to come back and get lots of love in!


I am so thankful that I was able to be there! Jack – you are so loved! You have an incredible momma and such a sweet dadda to love you!
