I have known Melissa for over half of our lives – she became one of my sister’s best friends waaaay back in the day and she’s been a really special person (along with her family) to my entire family. She is one of the few people in the world whose wedding I would happily photograph […]

These photos…. oh, where do I even begin?? They are magical, and the location was my all-time favorite, ever. The weather cooperated perfectly, the children were wonderful, I mean really -every single piece came together perfectly. What’s funny is that the time we spent with this family was almost the only part of our trip […]

We’re at the end of a gorgeous autumn right now, but I’m trying to sneak in a few more summer sessions before I’ve really waited a ridiculously long time to post them. 😉 This mama and her boys… well, all I can really say is that boys who love their mamas are one of my […]
