At home with the G family

Today I had such a special session with the G family in their lovely home. This session was extra special as they are preparing to move to a new home. Today we captured memories all around their home, so when the kids are bigger they can look back and remember all the fun they had here.

We played in big brother’s room, read books, baked cookies, played outside, snuggled in mom & dad’s room and ended with a cake smash to celebrate sweet Miss. A’s first birthday. Although, the poor peanut was coming down with a cold and didn’t quite enjoy her cake as much as she would have had she been feeling better.

Anyway, here is a very tiny look at our day. No worries though, I will for sure be sharing more including the sweet video I shot. Stay tuned but enjoy these for now.

Baby J – 20 days old

This morning I had the pleasure of meeting the adorable Mr. J. At 20 days old this little sweetheart is a bit older than my typical newborns but he rocked his session! Seriously, he slept almost the entire time we were together. And the faces and expressions he was making had me in stitches. It is just amazing to me that the newborns already have such personalities.

Anyway, take a peek at the fun morning we had together. Here is a little sneak peek.

Arts & Framing

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Karen Bernard, the owner of “Arts & Framing”. “Arts & Framing” has been in business for 25 years and Karen bought the business from the previous owners in April of 2018. Karen has recently moved locations from the Montgomery Ward building to it’s new home on 136 Main Street, in Putnam. “Arts & Framing” offers a full array of services, including framing and matting, preservation, installation, commercial orders, and even offers shipping.

People come from miles around to her business and have their pictures expertly framed by Karen herself. “Arts & Framing” offers the widest variety of picture frame selection I’ve ever seen. In addition to the frames, there are countless matting options as well as several glass styles and types. Karen has a perfect eye and is sure to frame the pictures to give them their own personality.

This visit was perfect timing with the holidays right around the corner, and gift giving on our minds. I would encourage you to take any of your favorite photos from your family sessions to Karen to be framed and made into beautiful pieces of art for your wall.

Christmas Cuties

Today I met up with this beautiful family at their home to do some Christmas portraits for them. We started in fancy outfits and did more formal poses and then mixed things up with a few other outfits. Including some sweet pjs and then some silly ones with costumes and such. It was a great session. Take a peek!

One Happy Family!

This morning I met up with the sweetest family at the park to do an extended family session. These guys were troopers in the chilly snowy weather and we had a great session. I just love the color scheme they choose. It worked so well with the green of the pine trees. Here is just a tiny peek from our time together.

Baby G – 12 days old

This morning I had the absolute pleasure of meeting sweet Miss. G. She is the baby sister to one of favorite little guys and now big brother, Sam. I am sure you recognize him as I have had the pleasure of photographing that sweet guy since he was a tiny newborn like her.

Sweet Miss. G is such a cutie pie. After a few feeds with mom and a good swaddle she was fast a sleep and slept for most of her session. I even managed to get a little smile from her and everything. Here is just a tiny peek form our session today.

Miss. E – 7 days old

This morning I had such a great session with the seriously adorable Miss. E. This sweet baby girl is seven days old and so full of personality already. And did I mention gorgeous? I mean I was just smitten with her. 😉 From her lovely long lashes to her beautiful full lips this sweet girl looks like an actual baby doll. I must have said she was beautiful about a thousand times during her session. Pretty sure her mom thought I was nuts. LOL! Take a look at her sneak peek below and I think you will agree. 🙂

The N Family

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the N family at their lovely home. As you know, it was crazy chilly yesterday but these guys were troopers and we made it work. You see with five kids busy schedules, rescheduling just wasn’t an option for them.

So we started their session with group shots and then ran the littles in the house to warm up while I photographed the bigger kids. And we continued the back and fourth until we were able to get photos of everyone. In the end I was able to get some very sweet shots of this wonderful family. Thank you guys for braving the weather. Here is a little sneak peek of our time together.

In the Woods

This morning I had such a fun session with the L family. Today’s session was extra special because of the location they chose. You see, these guys are getting ready to build a new home and have recently just purchased their land. So when mom suggested using it for the photo session I was thrilled!

I just love the idea of choosing a location with meaning and what could be more meaningful than this. Not mention how fun it will be in the future to look back on these photos to see what the property looked like before. Here is a little sneak peek of our time in the woods. 😉

Mr. W – 9 Days Old

This sweet baby boy was an absolute delight to photograph today. At just 9 days old he is already so full of personality. He was smiling and posing thru his whole session. It was pretty stinking cute! And speaking of cute, his big sister is just as cute as he is. Not to mention, she is doing quite the great job with her new responsibility as big sister. Here is just a tiny peek from our time together.
