john henry is three years old

What a CUTIE! John Henry is three and when Dan and I first saw him we each (separately) thought---Oh my gosh, he should be a baby model!!!! He is SO SMART too! And very well behaved! John Henry's dad is Brian, and he designed the new logo and marketing materials for our studio that are about to be officially released! (You may have noticed our logo change on our photos lately....and there's a lot more cool stuff to come, thanks to Brian with Miles Design!) He and his wife, Kristi, are such good people. Kind, warm, friendly, laid back, sweet, and amazing parents to John Henry. No wonder he is so wonderful! Brian and Kristi, thank you so much for bringing in John Henry to see us!

laura is a senior

How exciting---our FIRST photo shoot in our new studio!!! Laura was such a sweetheart to have in for our first session. She was cute and happy and so laid back. She made the session so relaxed and refreshing & we had a good time with her and her mom, who patiently waited in our temporary seating area (we are still definitely moving in and will be for a while!) while we shot Laura's photos. Thank you, Laura, for coming in to see us and making our first session enjoyable!

jackson is six months old

Jackson is six months old and oh so adorable! Poor Jackson's photo shoot got moved twice, and on the day we finally could all get together for an outdoor shoot, it rained! No problem though... they were all troopers while we found a beautiful spot that was covered and---the photos are precious! Justin and Kristen, thank you so much for bringing Jackson back to see us! That cute little smile of his is contagious!

the cappa family

You may remember cute Owen and Isabella... We met their family at the park on Saturday and braved the cold for some fun family photos! Their mom has three sisters and we took photos of all of them together and their individual families. The kids did awesome and the adults were great to hang out with! We always love seeing Owen and Isabella and it was a treat to meet the entire family!

dave and andrea say i do

Oh, Dave and Andrea! What an amazing day!!!! Even though the weather was gorgeous and perfect, the "amazing" part I was talking about is Dave and Andrea. Period. I just absolutely adore this couple. I have never seen so many happy tears in a ceremony and during toasts as I saw at this wedding. So many people love this couple (individually and together) and the love POURED out all day. I have to admit that I choked up several times. They love each other so much and love being together. You can tell that when they are together they wouldn't rather be anywhere else, and you can not only see but feel how true their commitment is to each other. Another "never before"... I have never seen a couple laugh with each other so much as these two!!! Dave and Andrea, we absolutely loved and cherished being with you on your wedding day and we wish you a life full of happiness together!!!! Congratulations!!!!!

we are moving

We will be closed this week (November 3-7) to move into our new studio!! We got the OK on Friday to start moving in! As you can see in the photos below we still have A LOT of work to do but we are so excited to get in and get the place finished! Our construction team, Catalyst, will wrap up their part this week and then we will begin our part, installing the bamboo floor, mirrors, art, furniture, etc! The building turned out so amazing and we can't wait for you all to see it! We are planning on having some kind of an open house in the spring. We'll keep you posted.

This is our waiting room and kitchen. Come on in, grab a cup of coffee, tea, soda, whatever, and relax in the comfy to be determined furniture. The kitchen will be put in after we figure out the bamboo floor.

This is one of our bathrooms.

One of our two changing rooms. There will be a mirror across the back wall and half of the countertop will be set up for changing diapers! No more changing your kids on the couch! There will also be a nursing chair in each of the changing rooms for those who need a quick bite to eat during the shoot.

This is the studio. The light in this room is amazing!

This is our makeup "cube". There will be a mirror between the two lights. All of the countertops that you are seeing were built my uncle and my dad. They turned out better than I could have imagined... one of my favorite parts of the place!

This is our trellis that houses the track lighting that will light our gallery wall. Our gallery wall will run the entire length of the building.

reagan is 9 months old

What a treat to have the last photo session in our downtown studio be with Josh, Cara, and Reagan! Reagan grows and changes so much between each session and it's hard to believe each time we see her! She is ADORABLE! We always have so much fun catching up with this family and we feel as though we've been friends for a lot longer than we have actually known each other. Thanks so much, Josh and Cara, for bringing in Miss Reagan to see us again!!! We always enjoy seeing you and your little princess!!!
