Happy Valentine’s Day!  This year, I not only get hugs and kisses from the cutest kids ever, I also SOLD MY HOUSE!!!  Hooray!  I can’t say enough how grateful I am for all of the support I have had from this community and from my wonderful clients over the past 4 years!  Thank you so much for all the wonderful memories:).  Kansas City, here I come!

And a little Valentine’s Day cuteness from my favorite valentines:).  This is our favorite Valentine’s Day tradition!

XOXO!

What an amazing year 2012 has been! I was able to photograph so many former clients, and the very best part were the 11 former newborn clients who came back this year as big brothers or sisters. I feel so completely blessed to have been so supported here in New York. It will be hard to leave my amazing clients, but I hope to meet families just as wonderful very soon in Kansas City. It is both humbling and gratifying to look back on a year of work and remember all of the beautiful people I was able to spend the day or evening with.

Click below to see a slideshow from this past year:). Enjoy!

Could this family be any more gorgeous or better dressed?

Highly doubtful.

Amazing how fast they grow up!  Julianna was such a sweetheart at her newborn session too:).

Thanks so much guys–I loved every minute:).

I don’t often have the chance to photograph families without an itty bitty person, but when I do, it’s so much fun!  I just love capturing those interactions between family members, especially siblings, so when my sister-in-law came to visit with her 5-year old twins I couldn’t wait to photograph them.  To focus on those relationships, we kept the clothing super simple in the studio.  We had so much fun playing games together, and I adore these images:).

Ah, fall.  It makes me want to be on a campus somewhere buying 3-subject notebooks and newly sharpened #2 pencils.  Or out in the beautiful evening light shooting portraits–that’s pretty great too:).

This fall, I will be offering a handful of limited edition fall mini portrait sessions, both outdoor and studio.  Outdoor is great for families of any age and size (especially for babies that can sit unassisted and toddlers), and studio sessions are perfect for non-walking babies and families with non-toddler children.  Little mobile people just have a hard time in the studio sometimes:).  Due to time constraints, mini sessions are not available to babies younger than 3 months of age.  Mini sessions are perfect for updating your family images, documenting a new milestone, or capturing images for holiday cards and gifts, or if you’ve never had a custom portrait session and would like to try it out.  Sessions last about 20-30 minutes and will result in 8-12 final images.  Exclusive digital and print collections are available for this event as well.

And the best part, a $50 donation will be made to charity: water for each collection purchased. charity: water is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. I also love that 100% of public donations given to the charity: water organization go directly toward funding clean water solutions (overhead and salary monies come from private donors and foundations).  For more information, please visit http://www.charitywater.org/.
