Ananda is a talented photographer and all around rad human, so when she wanted to schedule a family session with ME when her oldest made it back home for a little holiday visit, I was hugely flattered.  The crew was a dream in front of my camera and the love Mike & Ananda share is apparent…I was so excited to capture that for them.  The photos turned out gorgeous and I adore the custom canvas collection that we cooked up for the family’s living room wall!

Brody is Two!

Brody has been in front of my camera since he was a newborn!  It’s been fun to see him change and grow.  At two years old, this little critter has tons of personality.  His mom, Megan, and I talked about some quick posed pictures at the park to commemorate his second birthday.  Once we got there, we realized that we forgot to run that by Brody…and he had other plans!  Luckily, after showing Megan the pictures that we got instead, we think he had the right idea.  I love the sweet moments that we caught!brody

Brody is One!

The Martins make me smile.  They are totally natural in front of the camera, have a pretty cute kid and always keep me laughing.  That, and they can serve up some mean BBQ.  It’s so neat to see how much Brody has changed since his newborn pictures last summer.  I love how their family pictures always reflect what a sweet, silly, fun family the Martins are in real life!    

Jamie & Jarrod

When our friend told me that his wife referred her cousins to me for maternity pictures, he described Jamie as “…a super cute prego lady”.   Sure enough, even after running late, getting lost AND shooting in Texas July heat, she still looked like this!!  I, on the other hand, did not look this cute when I got home & made it to a mirror…totally unfair.

It was so nice to meet you guys, Jamie & Jarrod!  Thanks for being such good sports.  I can’t wait to meet little Noah!

Welcome home, Luke!

I had a great time meeting this cute, little nugget last month!  Luke spent a few extra days in the hospital, but we were able to squeeze in a last minute newborn session at their home.  He totally turned it out!   Max, the family’s dog, closely supervised while Luke napped and smiled the afternoon away.   Thanks for having me take these first pictures of your new little family, Chrisy & Mike!
