August 19, 2009

Our  kids are enjoying the last few weeks of summer before they return back to school so we’ve been busy with summer activities. I hope you’ve all had a great summer. Ours have been  a fun, action filled summer so far.

I’m not quite ready to blog about our recent photo shoots but here’s a few favorite photos from yesterday’s birthday shoot with Ellya.

Hush little baby…newborn photography : A Father’s Day blog post

June 20, 2009

Last year, we met a beautiful couple and had the honor of being their engagement and wedding photographers. Many of you blog readers may recognize them from this  photo shoot and this one. Just imagine how thrilled Joe & I were to get a phone call from them with the good news that they were expecting!

I’ll be sharing with you a few favorite images from our maternity shoot. Since it is Father’s Day this Sunday, I wanted to share these beautiful newborn photos of dad & his new son. I look at  these dad & baby son photos and  can’t help but think about how awesome it is to have a Heavenly Dad who loves us more than we can ever love our little ones. It’s a mind boggling thing that such love exists and yet it does..and He gives us children so we can understand in a very small way how much He really loves His own children.

“We love him, because he first loved us..” 1 John 4:19

Happy Father’s Day to all you amazing dads!










Shortly after we had our maternity shoot, their little bundle of joy arrived into the world. We got to spend some time with this beautiful family a few weeks ago and here are some favorite images from our shoot.







Right when the little baby started getting fussy, his strong dad started whispering gently into his ears…singing to him and talking to him…and instanly, he responded to his soothing voice by calming down and falling right to sleep…what an amazing thing to watch!


I love the contrast between daddy’s big and strong hands versus his small baby’s body.






A sweet moment between all three of them…




This image below is for the dads out there, may this remind you of those times when you first held your little ones in your arms and the overwhelming love you felt for them.

Happy Father’s Day to you dads out there!


And of course I had to pose with this little guy…you can just imagine how easy it was to fall in love with such a handsome little fella.

Welcome to the world baby Brody…you are such an incredibly blessed little boy to be surrounded by so many people that love you!

One of our favorite couples just gave birth to the most gorgeous little baby boy a few weeks ago and we were so excited to spend the morning with them.  I just couldn’t help but fall in love with this little guy. It was so sweet to watch daddy comforting his little one…Here’s a few faves from the shoot. Stay tuned for more to come including faves from the maternity shoot.

What an exciting day it was when one of our gorgeous brides from last year called Joe & I to let us know that she was pregnant. And not only that, she also wanted us to do her pregnancy and newborn photos! Wow.  Here are some photos taken from our beautiful shoot last weekend. More to come soon. Stay tuned!
