Frolicking in the Rain

Yes, it was actually raining, but that didn’t stop the fun. I just held my hood over my camera and kept shooting! You’ll see little drops on the hair and some little flecks but mostly it doesn’t show. This little smartly dressed man put on a good show!MO new-1MO vert-2MO-2MO-1MO-4MO-8MO-5MO vert-1MO-10

Happy Cousins, Siblings, Parents, and Especially, Grandma

There was a lot of excitement to capture—the three musketeers in action, doting on baby girl, grandma’s joy, and all kinds of combinations of everyone! I can almost feel the warmth of holding hands, the tickle of cheek on cheek and the love sparkling from their eyes!

Mischievous Munchkin on the Run

This little bundle of fun would not stop moving for even a second. Lucky I have a super fast camera and sprinting feet! But honestly, I’m happy to chase your kids in circles and hang from branches to capture all the sweetness and laughter of your family. I love these two wardrobe palettes, too—striking colors that contrast artistically with the background. Who’s next? Holiday deal about to be launched!


Laughing Prettily in Pink

Yes, I’m pretty excited about the laughing. Especially because we were off to a rough start—running late (and you can’t ask the setting sun to wait), one sister with a migraine, another fatigued, and no one really in the mood to smile, pose, take orders, and change clothes. So I had to strip and dance naked while playing the trumpet on the Hey Cupcake Trailer roof, and that’s when I got the best photos. Kidding aside, they were really troopers. Mom had said that it would be tough to get real laughs out of one of them, but I always rise to a challenge. Even if I have to rise on a broomstick and paint my face green. So here they are, lovely beautiful sisters, all so different in personality, style, and looks, all in synch and having a good time. And yes, I always try to take more pictures of the last child, because—let’s face it—you don’t have time anymore!

Fun. Joy. Daddy is our hero.

This is what I felt during the session with this beautiful family. So much warmth and connection. And the kids were literally screaming–and almost crying–from laughter. Sure, I engaged in the usual antics— swinging my hips and singing, shouting silly things, and kicking off my shoe, which flew over my head–yes, I’m completely shameless and will do anything to entertain my subjects. But these kids were in stitches over their father, who was clearly funnier than me. And if a guy can make his 12 year old daughter laugh for an hour, pose with a pile of contented kids on his back, and elicit hugs, licks, and so much joy, then he must have a really big heart.



PAC-MAN returns for a bright and festive session.

My fine arts and graphic design background allow me to carefully plan and coordinate all the details of your session so that they work artistically together. Together we’ll choose a theme, and then we’ll select wardrobe and backdrops. If you will be displaying art in your home then I’ll work within your interior design so that color palette and style are thoughtfully considered.

The Dream Team

A photographer’s dream: two sweet beautiful kids modeling the art of fun!

You’ll see a lot of laughing in my images. And happy smiles. I really make it my business to make your kids laugh. And also you. It helps lighten the mood and everyone loosens up. Plus, there’s nothing cuter than expressions of pure glee, and I want you to remember these moments for ever and ever. And to look at these pictures when you’re feeling sad, or in difficult moments of parenting, or when your children are all grown up. You will treasure these. I promise.

Golds and Blues

I like how the blues and the golds complement each other in these images. Color palettes are so essential to the success of a session and I love working with my clients to achieve the perfect look. It’s always best to start with an outfit for your child that you love and want to remember them in and then work around it to come up with a harmonious blend of colors, patterns, and textures. I also love how you can see the connections and feel the emotion in the images, especially the bond between the mother and daughter.
