My Top 10 of 2013 {#8}

{I have decided to show and tell my favorite shots from 2013….often the pictures that grip me are not the picture-perfect poses, but the images that tell a story…}

I know I say this a lot, but some of the most special sessions I do focus on the birth of new little humans. What a privilege it is to be trusted to capture these memories – they fly by so fast, that there isn’t time for a do-over. If I screw up a birth session, there is no second chance. Newborn sessions aren’t much different. Those first few days, you can’t ever get them back.

When I met Erin and Donnie, I didn’t just meet clients. I met a truly sweet and wonderful couple, who welcomed me right into their beautiful journey with open arms. It was a pleasure getting to know them, and getting to photograph some of Parker’s first special moments!

My Top 10 of 2013 {#9}

I thoroughly enjoyed my little trip to California this summer, and along the way we met up with Amber, Joe and James – good friend’s of my brother who have become good friends of mine. Amber and Joe were just about ready to welcome their new little guy into the world, and we spent a beautiful evening together on the beach documenting such a special time for their family.

Joe is in the Navy with my brother, and my honest impression the first time I met him was that he was a cocky jerk ;) I’m not sure I was THAT far off base (I kid, Joe!) but I’m really glad that I had the opportunity to spend some more time with him and get to meet Amber – who I am sure is to thank for his change of demeanor!

Shooting in a new place was not only a challenge, but quite a bit of fun too!

I could share all day, but I will leave you with just a few more favorites!

Katie {studio + outdoor maternity}

When Katie contacted me she knew she wanted both outdoor maternity portraits with her family, and very sweet, simple indoor ones just for her. I was all too happy to make that happen, and I am so happy with the images we captured before her sweet little guy, Brayden, arrived.

Holly {outdoor maternity portraits}

What a super fun family, I had a great time getting to know Holly and her family during their maternity session (and again when Mr. Nathan made his appearance and they brought him in for his newborn pictures, more on that soon!) I just can’t think of a better way to document the growth of a family than in the beautiful outdoors!
