I met this family through another family that I photographed often. They were so laid back and were down for anything!
We started our morning with a fun little bike ride. These guys are so active that I wanted to capture part of their current lifestyle. We wandered around the park to get a few shots. From there, we decided to take a little walk on the greenbelt and into the park.
It’s crazy how fast time goes by. It seemed like I just photographed this family the other day but it was actually three years ago. Do you remember this shot from 2010?
Well, this is her now! So big!
AND she’s a big sister!
To make it more fun, I recreated the first shot with her baby brother because I thought it would be a cool comparison.
While we are at it, a shot of the whole fam.
More to come…
I’ve had a lot of people come up to me and say, “we need to get our family photos taken with you, but I want to lose a few pounds first” or “my kids are 10 and 15 and we’ve never had a family photo taken together”. Several years go by and a session was still not scheduled. This always makes me sad because time goes by SO fast and next thing you know, 5-10 years has passed and some of those memories will slip away.
I was recently going through a bunch of the old video clips I made last year during photo sessions and decided to put a little video together as a reminder of how important it is to capture those milestones in your life. Life changes and moves so fast.

Here are a couple of my favorite shots from a session this summer. This little lady is always so fun to play with, she never fails to make me giggle.
This little bear has been a part of her life since she was a baby. It’ll be fun to see how she outgrows it.
Since I was little it has always been easy for me to connect with kids. You can ask any one of my relatives. I was the cousin carrying around the younger cousin. I also think this is what makes being a child and family photographer come so easy for me. The other day I was photographing a family and the 2-year-old decided she wanted to play with me instead of getting her photo taken. I was able to snap this shot really fast because it made me laugh.
Little moments like these also remind me why I love doing this job.
It has been a little while since I’ve photographed a sweet little newborn so I was excited when I got the email saying this little guy was born. He is so much different than his high-energy brother. He slept the entire time, but don’t worry, his adorable big brother kept me busy.
It was great photographing this happy family.
Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. This little lady decided she wanted to earn her keep and be my photo helper during her photo session.
