I can’t believe I drafted this blog post and never shared it! One of my all time favorite sessions, I flew to Florida to meet my friends’ new baby boy. And it was such a joy to see older brother Thomas with sweet baby max. I just love this family. ENJOY!

2017: a year in review

c3582-2017bestof-018.jpg

It's a good thing we're photographers because it's hard to find words to describe 2017. Personally and professionally it was a year of firsts and tremendous growth. Thanks so much to everyone who chose to work with us in 2017. I don't think we could have made it through such a crazy year without so many awesome new and returning clients, and we have some big changes coming in 2018.

Here are a few of our favorites from the past year, Enjoy!

Baby Luca

It's always such a joy to photograph families in their home, especially after welcoming a new little one into the world. AND, even better when it's your own family. Welcome baby Luca! We all love you so much (especially your fur siblings).

J Family

JonesFamily-027.jpg

One of the BEST parts about photographing families is watching them grow. I first met this little family a few years ago when I photographed them on a super cold day (quite possibly the first time Oliver saw snow). This year I had the pleasure of photographing their extended family, as well as just the three of them again (almost 4!) on a gorgeous fall day. Oliver isn't always the smiliest kid, but on this day he gave us some pretty good ones. :) Enjoy!

Liam 2/24/17

54cf1-img.jpg

On February 24th at 6:30pm after 24 hours of labor followed by an unplanned C section, Liam Michael Horgan was born. Although it's only been 3 weeks, it's hard to imagine how things were without our squishy faced finger toed little man. Leading up to the big day you receive plenty of advice and hear all the cliches, but it truly isn't something that can be put into words. Hopefully these images do a better job of telling the story of how little Liam Michael came into the world and the crazy first few days of his life.

Baby Seamus

It's been a while since we've posted. You may notice we've been a little quiet on social media and that's because not only did we have an insane summer and fall (didn't everyone?!), but we're also getting ready to welcome a new addition to our family - a baby boy due in February. I never imagined how much time we would spend preparing for this little guy, but it consumed most of our free time the past couple months. I'm sure we'll flood your feeds with photos of him once he arrives, but until then I'd love to share some work from 2016.

I thought it might be appropriate to share some lifestyle and newborn photos since we're on the topic. First up is baby Seamus. I was so excited to finally meet him (about a week and a half early!) after getting to know his parents during their fall maternity session back in October. So for fun, I thought I'd share both sessions together (bonus! there's a puppy too). Enjoy the cuteness!

Baby Forrest

And here's why I love in-home sessions.

I know Kirsten from my previous life as a designer, so I was so excited when she told me they were expecting baby #2. I already had the privilege of photographing Genevieve on her first birthday, and the whole family last fall. But when I walked into their home to photograph baby Forrest, I knew it would be a great session. Of course, it helps that they have a gorgeous home and an adorable dog Archie.

Per any lifestyle newborn session, I started with the nursery, details, and even the vintage bassinet in their bedroom (that was passed passed down for generations). From there, we wrapped Forrest up in his blankets, on their bed, in their home. He was WIDE awake for most of the session, but super calm. I think we finally exhausted him by the end of the session because he later passed out right as I was about to leave.

I hope you enjoy. Make sure to at least scroll down to the photos of Genevieve, who wanted nothing more than to hold him and kiss his forehead. <3
