Baby Vincent

Sweet baby Vincent. One thing is for sure- this boy loves his mama more than he loved me or my baskets of fluffy coziness. Ha ha. That's okay. I'm not offended that I'm not the favorite.  His mom had magical powers to calm him though.  She introduced me to...

Carter Kids

So these kiddos are adorable. And they happen to be my niece and nephews. So yes, I'm biased. But I do love them and love taking their pictures. So much personality in this group!  They're probably sillier than my regular kid sessions because they're so...

Baby Easton

Lowe Family

For having 6 kids this was honestly one of the easier family shoots I've ever done. They came prepared with their favorite aunt and a hand puppet behind me to get and keep the kids attention. And she did! Maybe I'll need to hire her as an assistant. This family is...
