It seems like yesterday that my little sister announced the big news that I was going to be an aunt (again). She is expecting a baby boy the middle of next month. He’s gonna be close enough in age that my own little guys will still be able to be buddies with him!

Of course I had to steal her away to get some nice maternity photos before baby M arrives. Lynsay is my kids’ babysitter a couple days a week and they love her to pieces (as do I).  She’s a great sister and a great friend.

(okay, geez this is getting sappy, I need to stop).

I love ya Lynsay!!! I’m so excited to see mr. M when he arrives!!!


my FAV!!

Hello canvas!!!




She could seriously be in magazines. She’s got a bump, with style. 🙂

I wish I looked that good when I was preggo. I looked like a big ol belly with really short legs. Quite humorous actually.

Okay on to the sizzle poses…

sb22Till next time!



Elena has become a great friend of mine over the past few months. She’s been 2nd shooting some weddings with me and her talent always amazes me. You can see her site here. She’s not only talented, she’s absolutely beautiful and her husband is quite the looker. Together they make an absolutely breath-taking couple.

This year marks their sixth anniversary. It’s not a landmark year by any means, but I live by the rule that if you wait for that special time to get photos done it may never happen. Sometimes the most magical moments happen when it’s not a special day. I’m often doing photos of couples a day after, a week after, or even years after they’ve been married. I love to capture the true beauty of love. The love that sometimes takes years to form. The years together through the good times and bad. (Okay I gotta stop now or I’ll start crying all over again.)

Elena and Demetrye are extraordinary in their love together. The way he looks at her, the way she relaxes when he’s nearby, the smiles, the silence that speaks volumes.


If these images even show a glimpse of what their love is, then I will be satisfied.

12wmrs okay and this one just made me smile. Not a normal portrait, but again… the laughter…

Elena and Demeytre, I’m so honored you asked me to do your photos. I had the best time!!!

“Mom, I like this shirt!” My little guy exclaimed while proudly displaying his new t-shirt (he picked it out himself.)

“You do?” I asked. “Do you know that it says ‘dad’s my superhero?’ ”  “Yes he is!” he announces. “He flies around-da-round the clouds, up in the air!”

“He does?!!!” I ask trying to hide my laughter.

“Yeah mom, it’s awesome.”

Conversations with a three year old….


These little guys were born 7 weeks early after their mom was on bed rest for a few months. The babies were in the NICU for 6 weeks and finally came home a couple of weeks ago.  At one point in the pregnancy the doctors didn’t think that baby “N” would survive (he’s the one in green).

Just listening to the story of how “N” survived against all odds made me tear up. I can’t even imagine going through all those struggles and not knowing whether or not my babies would make it.

But here they are as healthy and strong as they can be! They are both perfect in every way.

Thank you for a wonderful session. These little guys melted my heart.


They kept humming and singing to each other as they were falling asleep. It was the most precious thing.

sb1LOVE these shots!!
