Katie & Justin

Katie and Justin wanted a wintery forest setting for their engagement session, and the weather and location couldn't have been any more perfect. I have wanted to shoot these trees since I first hear about them, and was so excited when Katie suggested it. To stay warm, they enjoyed some hot coffee in the middle of the session, which helped to combat the 14 degree temps.

Enjoy this winter wonderland enchanted forest session!

Jessica & Jarrod

Jessica and Jarrod were both in previous weddings that we photographed, so naturally we were thrilled when they decided they wanted to work with us too (yay for referrals!). I was excited when they talked about a winter engagement session, and we all hoped for snow. 

They started off by grabbing a drink at Milestone 229, significant because it was where they had dinner the night that Jarrod proposed (on the bridge pictured below). Even though it was like negative one million degrees, we still had some fun. And best of all - FRESH SNOW! 

Can't wait the wedding!

S Family

When Kate first contacted me about photographing her family, I was so excited that she truly understood lifestyle photography. It's a hard concept for some people - invite me into your home but then try to pretend I'm not there. Typically for an in-home session I'll do a combination of posed, semi-posed, and purely lifestyle, which is exactly what we did here. This is the home Kate and he sister grew up in, and she wanted to make sure they captured as much as possible in case the family ever moves away. My favorite part: baking their traditional family cookie recipe. They even had the original copy of the recipe. Thanks guys for letting me into your home and sharing a glimpse of the love and memories you've shared there.

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).

Liam 2/24/17

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.
