Sneak Peek: Olson Family

On Saturday, I was lucky enough to be invited to spend some time with the Olson family at one of their favorite parks. We took a walk around the park with some stops for portraits and some stops for playing and exploring. Andy and Annika are only 5 but they did a great job! They each had a "prize" waiting for them when we finished pictures - Barbie for Annika (she even showed it to me!) and Spiderman for Andy.

Thank you for letting me help document a day in the life of your family! It was great to meet you and get to try out a different park for portraits!

Brooklynn is (almost) 2 years old!

I can't believe Brooklynn will already be two! It seems like just yesterday I was taking her newborn and 6-month portraits. Andrea, Travis and I spent another beautiful evening with Brooklynn at Glen Park, just like we did for her twelve-month portraits. Brooke did an amazing job - a whole 2 hours of pictures and she stayed happy the whole time!

I'm...ten? :)


Andrea brought a flower, which worked out perfectly!

A quick outfit change and right back to more pictures!


We found some gorgeous light as the evening went on...

What a little model!



Brooklynn's starting to get too quick for my lenses! :)


As always, thank you Andrea & Travis for letting me help document Brooklynn's life! She is absolutely adorable & I can't believe how big she's gotten! (I bet you can't either! :) )

Sneak Peek: Katherine {12 days}

My last post was all about my friends Jenna & Pete. My new post will be all about...their baby, Katherine! Katherine was born on 8/23/11 and is absolutely adorable! She was not as..."pliable" as other newborns I've photographed. :) She was awake for almost the whole time and definitely had a mind of her own! We still managed to get some good portraits that showcased how cute Katherine is. I'm so happy I had a chance to head to Pete & Jenna's to meet Katherine! Hopefully we'll be able to do it again soon!

Thank you for letting me document not only your pregnancy but your new addition! I can't wait to watch Katie grow up! ♥
