These pictures are actually from almost a year ago!! This is my boyfriend’s younger sister, who I adore :) Jill and I had lots and lots of fun and I was overjoyed she asked me to do this. I could not have had an easier model, that’s for sure! These photo’s are extra cool since I had borrowed my friend (and great photographer) Peter’s lenses. Thanks Peter!!

This is my beautiful older sister, mom to my favorite photography subjects :) Yup, this is Thomas and Cecilia’s mommy! The first picture is one of my favorite photographs I have ever taken. All the beautiful dimensions of her face are illuminated by the soft window light on her right. I LOVE natural light and I LOVE side lit portraits. Mindy just broke into the most easy, genuine smile here and I am so glad I caught it!

I have a not-so-secret talent. It’s called BABY GUSHING. and I am really, really, really good at it. Baby Tommy brought out the best baby gushing in me ever. I mean, check out his cheeks…they are plump and luscious and full and yummy and kissable. But his eyes!! Clearest, sharpest, crispest eyes, ever. And he had a very intense gaze. Wait! Have I talked about his lips yet?! They are so perfectly shaped, and colored, and they make the cutest expressions. AND THE hair. I have a thing for red-heads! Baby Tommy has the softest, most beautiful red hair. did I talk about his CHEECKS yet? softest things I have ever touched!! I think they might have been my favorite part of Baby Tommy’s face. Baby Tommy’s mommy, mommy Cindy, was a little bummed that baby Tommy wasn’t offering up the smiles..but who cares? This baby is distinguished, serious, stoic, handsome, and he wasn’t going to crack for some baby gushing photographer! Actually, Baby Tommy did smile frequently..at his mommy! I always liked a little baby boy who was crazy for his mother! Baby Tommy, thank you for letting me gush over you, and baby talk in your face and squish your cheeks and run my hand over your soft red hair. You have a special spot in my heart, because you are the first little one that I have seriously photographed that was not related to me! I hope we can have lots more photo-dates. And mommy Cindy, thanks for giving me a chance to capture Baby Tommy. You’re fantastic!!! :)

Twelve year olds do not come any sweeter than this one!! My little brother worked hard all morning raking, and couldn't pass up the chance to jump in the huge piles. When I saw him playing in the leaves, I couldn't resist a little photoshoot :) Enjoy!

These two cuties are my niece and nephew. Since their birth, these twins have been an integral part of my photography journey!! I never tire of documenting their growth and most of all, their personalities.
