Ashley and Aaron engaged (and adorable!)

I am thinking they probably hear it all the time... adorable - but it is right there in your face. Sweet, sweet smiles - both of them. When they cuddle and beam at each other, you can feel it - the love, the trust, the friendship. If I felt this much at their engagement session, I can hardly...

They thought so much about their family, from making sure they were comftorable, to ensuring their was time to enjoy them to scheduling time for family photos before the wedding.

Carrie and Rob Engaged

It was such a thrill to capture portraits of Carrie and Rob. I was crushed that I was not available to photograph their upcoming wedding, and this was a wonderful consolation (although now I might be a little more crushed) - because they truly are fabulous. Not only are they both stunning, but you...

Celebrating Grads-Jenna

The smile. It said so much about her. That was my first impression. I was first struck by Jenna about six years ago. I went to watch a Pantuso Dance Recital and my then four year old and I enjoyed the whole show, but at one point this strong tapper came on stage and even though she was part of a...

It's grad time - Brody

Grad photos? They really don't need to be what you are used to. Yes, a cap and gown image has its place, but looking back years from now a character session, celebrating who that grad is, has more than a place - it has heart and sentiment. I am always thrilled when a family chooses to have Grad...

We all came together just for the love of it

When I was a photography student I remember the energy that would whirl around us as we concocted photo sessions just because.. of course we had piles of assignments to produce, but still a Friday night usually meant it was time to goof off - with our cameras. There was a freedom about these...
