Princess’ in the Woods

As a documentary photographer, I prefer to shoot my clients in familiar settings-primarily their home. However, a location that is near and dear to their heart is great too. On family land, chasing their dogs among open fields, cows, a creek, and mountains. Playing in the tree house in the middle of the woods that the family used for hunting trips and games of hide and seek.

This family. Oh my goodness this family. I always look forward to their sessions and this past fall was nothing short of amazing. They live in the most beautiful place in the county; among mountains, streams, and the most gorgeous fall color you ever laid eyes on.  Enjoy!

Another year has gone by and she keeps getting more grown up and more beautiful.

 

 

I stopped by her house so she could show me her rabbit and new puppy.

Graduation Flowers

Our little guy graduated kindergarten this past week! Man how time flies!!  We wanted to do something special for his teachers as a thank you for the last 3 years(he goes to a Montessori School and has the same teacher since he was 3 and in Pre-K). We decided to make a flower arrangement for each and instead of buying something pre-made, he wanted to cut flowers from our yard. He cut all the flowers and I helped with the arranging.

He added lavender and lemon balm so the arrangements would smell good. I think his favorite part is rubbing the lemon balm leaves so he can smell the yummy fragrance!

The End of a Season

My parents recently sold their dream home. They built the house they would raise 2 children in over 25 years ago.  They decided to close this season of their lives to start a new season in a new, smaller home with little maintenance so they can enjoy their lives more.  Before they turned the keys over the the new owner’s I wanted to document this time in their lives.

This mailbox is for my son. My mom and he put little treats in it for each other. He knows when the flag is up he has a little something waiting for him.

Happy Mother’s Day

As we take this weekend to honor our mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, aunts, god mothers, and mother-like figures in our lives, I thought I’d take today’s blog post to showcase some of my favorite mother images I’ve taken over the years.

Enjoy your weekend with your loved ones.
