So this blog post is long, long, long overdue.  Back in December I had the opportunity to photograph my brilliant and beautiful good friend and colleague Ashley Putz of Ashley Brown Photography.  Ashley was the first photographer I met when I moved to New York.  She photographed Jack’s birth and our whole family a few weeks after Jack arrived, and for that I will be eternally grateful.  Ashley was expecting her first baby, due in February of this year–actually just over a week ago.  Baby Greta had her own set of plans, though, and the day after Ashley’s session she was admitted into the hospital due to some pregnancy complications and Greta arrived a few short days later.  I was so, so grateful that Greta held off long enough for us to capture just how beautiful her mama was while pregnant.  It’s always a special experience to photograph another photographer.  There is this wonderful level of trust that just puts everyone at ease and makes the session flow so nicely.  Now that my computer is up and running again, I can’t wait to get through the whole session (it’s taken way, way too long to get these to you, Ashley, and for that I sincerely apologize), but for now, here’s a little taste of what’s to come:).




I think this might be my most favorite image from the whole session. I just adore the connection here… sigh.


Baby Greta has had a bit of a rough welcome to the world, but I can’t wait to meet her and capture the love that I already know exists for this wonderful new family. She’s an amazing little person:).
