So, after having these beautiful miraculous babies, reality set in! Babies are hard work! Toddlers are even harder! Yet through it all, watching these little people develop personalities is amazing! I had two baby boys, born from the same gene pool only months apart, and yet they couldn't be MORE different. I was so naive to think that my second son would be just like his brother! I couldn't have been more wrong!
It's hard to describe my boys, as in some ways they have similar qualities; kind, sweet, emotional, curious and tenacious, but they show it in different ways. And yet, in other ways they are the perfect yin to the other's yang! As a mother, I am grateful to the photographer inside of me to be able to capture their uniqueness! My eldest... he has a very solemn and tender sole. He is unsure of himself and is very contemplatative... he is a thinker and very much a mama's boy! :)
My youngest is very intense. Very black and white. Very deep, and yet, a TOTAL goofball! He is wild and daring and up for anything! He is loud and shy and generally simultaneously awesome and a hard work to hang out with! :)
Looking back on their young lives, I know that their personalities where innate. When I was pregnant with them, even then they behaved differently! One was quiet and worried me every day, and the other was active and gave me no rest! Nothing has changed! Every day they challenge me and frustrate me, but EVERY day I look at them and marvel at the privilege of being their Mum. They are amazing and I get to watch them grow and learn and be who they want to be. It's an honor.
But why does this even matter? Because I know that all children no matter what their history have their own stories to tell and their own personalities to show. When you come into my studio, I will see every little client as themselves, and I want to capture their soul. Sometimes they are playful and cannot sit still, other times they are tearful and quiet.. there is no normal, and that is ok! They are all phenomenal and amazing and I am so lucky to be able to capture a moment in their little lives for their big people to treasure forever.
"Hold him a little longer,
Rock him a little more.
Tell him another story,
Tell him a million more.
Let him sleep on your shoulder,
Cherish his every smile.
He is only a baby,
for just a little while."
It's no secret that I LOVE newborn sessions, but close on it's heels are sitter sessions!!! I love seeing my little clients return and show of their new skills and their adorable personalities. Sometimes they start off a little shy (quite right too!!), but then we start to have a little fun!! This guy..he had the best smile!! Those eyes!!!
Come and celebrate with me!!
By now you know that I have made a very exciting move to a new, bigger studio and I can't wait to show you around! In order to celebrate I will be offering exclusive children's portraiture mini sessions.

This year is off to a great start! My first session in the new studio was with these amazing, funny and gorgeous bunch! We had so much fun and I can't wait to photograph more portraits this year.
I first photographed this sweet family on their wedding day! It was such a blessing to be present at an intimate affair and be the one to capture those memories.
Next came bump....! :)
And then came baby!!!
But how could that already be a year ago.....?! Oh Danny, you're such a handsome boy!! Watch out girls!
Happy Birthday Danny!
