They say the days are long but the years are short.

With a toddler of my own, I feel this now more than ever before.

I want to remember everything:

The way her strawberry blonde hair only curls in the back.

The way she clings to my shoulders when I hold her.

The way she puckers her mouth into a funny little "o" to kiss me goodnight...

These moments are precious and fleeting and beautiful.

I want to capture them.

My availability for family portraits is very limited. I hold mini sessions annually in the fall and winter.

I also occasionally offer full portrait sessions, when my schedule allows,

prioritizing past and current clients.

"When can we do this again?"

Holiday minis — 2019

Thank you, Shaina! These photos came out amazing!!! My husband, who is not a fan of being in photos, loved them and had a hard time picking one as a favorite! My oldest son asked me when we could do another photo session. Thank you so so much for capturing the love and silliness of our family.
