Arla – Newborn Photos

•February 19, 2015 • 1 Comment

DSC_0431A long time ago there was a lovely girl named Morgan who lived in my basement for free in exchange for some light childcare duties :)  She was a wonderful housemate who has now gone on to be a wonderful PA and most certainly, a wonderful mom.  I had the pleasure of meeting sweet little Arla at just 11 days old.  Morgan had just one request; to include her grandfathers old snowshoes in the pictures somehow.  It was the perfect sentimental item for this winter babe.  And she, in turn, was the perfect little subject.

One of my first friends to become a mom was my college roommate Crystal.  And, 13 years later she’s still procreating :)  She’s always been one of the best moms I know, as well as partaking in one of those great friendships that spans decades.  I love her to pieces and after 13 years of being a “boys only” mom, she finally got her girl, Miss Julia.  Despite the fact that this little princess was experiencing a day of tummy troubles, a little patience gave us some pretty amazing shots of this perfect new little life.  Enjoy!

Nancy’s Family

•December 15, 2014 • Leave a Comment

After many years of seeing my good friend Nancy’s family displayed in large frames on the wall, I was pleasantly surprised (and mildly intimidated) when her mom asked if would do their family portrait this year.  We were not talking single-family either, but rather 4 grown children, 9 small to medium sized children, spouses, finances, and the couple who started it all, Frank and Pam.  19 people in all, as well as individual family shots of a few of the grown kids (are you following?)  I don’t always use an assistant but I snuck my brother-in-law with me to help and I think despite the very cold weather we had a successful morning!

Ethan and Austin

In November I had the chance to photograph a new client’s family, specifically her two boys Ethan and Austin.  She as a little unsure of my suggestion of outdoor photos, but admitted that her family had a horse farm and it might be a good location for portraits.  She was wrong, it was a GREAT location.  We had a pretty morning that wasn’t too cold, and little Ethan (who I repeatedly kept calling “Jack”…sorry buddy!) was quite the comedian and a great subject.  Was really nice to meet to this wonderful little family, as well as their horses Claire and Sonny.  And, for a little patting-myself-on-the-back moment, the second photo below was selected by my professional lab as their “photo of the day”!!

This was my first time photographing a dog show, but not my first time working with Ann-Marie, the lovely breeder whose home my boy Moose came from.  The star of this show, so to speak, was Moose’s full brother Charm.  Ann-Marie wanted me to capture both her showing Charm as well as “something that shows my relationship with him”.  Charm is every bit of everything you could want from a Lab – and his shining quality is absolutely his devotion to Ann-Marie.  I’ve made no secret in sharing that Charm is my favorite of all her dogs.  The judge apparently thought so too since Charm won Best of Show in his category!

Eyerly Family

I love repeat clients!!  Its always fun to come up with something new and different while at the same time knowing the subjects better and what they truly want out of a session.  For the Eyerly family, we took a little road trip to Jim Thorpe for a more “urban” metro feel.  It was probably one of the nicest October days we had, pushing 70 degrees and sunny, but still at the height of fall color.  We had a great day and I really look forward to photographing this attractive bunch again sometime soon!

Marlow & Eloise

I’ve been photographing these beauties (and their mom) since Eloise’s arrival into the world two years ago.  They are pretty, funny, and full of personality.  We haven’t had a dull shoot yet, and this year was no exception with a freezing cold day and a certain two-year old who apparently got into blue permanent marker just before the shoot :)  No matter, these girls did great and their mom did okay too :)
