HELLO SUMMER! ... bring it on. Hot sunny days... sandy feet after a day at the beach... trips to the local Dairy Queen. Kids can be kids, and parents can get a (little) break from the fast and furious pace of the school year. Take it all in. It'll be over in the blink of an eye!

While you're at it... consider getting your yearly pictures done now. Beach session, anyone? Maybe consider something new I'm doing called "one shot". For $75 you'll get one shot - beautifully edited and given to you as a digital image AND a 5x7 or 8x10 print. A perfect way to capture their personality now without a full blown session.

Having a talented photographer as a dad is awesome. He’s the guy with the camera when you’re on vacation and at your soccer games and birthday parties… capturing memories you can look back on years later.  But years later, you want him to be in some pictures too, right?  So this day was all about dad — and having a dad-photographer made this family session a BREEZE… these girls are definitely not camera-shy!


When Make it Better magazine called to ask if I’d be interested in shooting their back-to-school Fall fashion feature story – Prep’s Cool – of course I said YES!!   I had the best time working with the women at the magazine and the models for this story.  Not only were our models amazing, but so was the location – the gorgeous campus of Lake Forest Academy!

This little guy just couldn’t WAIT to celebrate his first Thanksgiving, so he decided to come a week early!  He was a perfect, sleepy model for his first photo shoot…


Another brand new arrival that showed up just in time for Thanksgiving!  You might remember her BIG sister from our fun session on the beach a few months ago…  Here, little sis is just 8 days old.


This little man had to be one of our sleepiest customers ever!   He was an absolute dream to photograph…  I know his family will be feeling very ‘thankful’ this Thanksgiving!


It seems like I’ve known their mom forever, but I haven’t seen these sisters since little Miss Mara was just a few months old.  Look at her now!


This little beauty is this family’s first – first daughter, first grand daughter… and I have a feeling she’ll get more than a little bit of spoiling from her grandma!


These adorable brother-sister twins will be hearing that a lot on their birthday since they were born on Halloween…  What a cool birthday!


I first photographed these little guys while still in Mom’s belly, then again when they were a week old, and now here they are at 6 months. It was fun checking in with this family again, after what’s been a very busy year.  First twins, then a trip to South Africa… oh, and a new house too!  Big sister ‘A’ is doing a great job helping Mom & Dad keep up with it all!


This sweet baby boy was all smiles during our session last month… and SO happy.  Look at those big brown eyes!
