Sweet Little Lana

Carolyn and Ross are long time clients of mine. I had the honour and privilege of shooting their STUNNING Hycroft Manor Wedding back in the summer of 2013. It was a perfect day, at the perfect venue, with the perfect couple. Then, in September 2014, just over 1 year later, I met with them again. This time to photograph Carolyn’s growing bump… and again everything was perfect. (Almost ridiculously so! I’d hate these two for being so damn perfect if they weren’t so fun, and down to earth, and genuine!)

One thing you should know about Carolyn and Ross is that they are straight-shooters. Despite their hollywood good looks and their fancy wedding- They don’t like frills. They don’t like gimmicks. They don’t do ‘cutesy’ or ‘posey’ or ‘gaze at each other lovingly while thinking about buttercups and faery-dust‘. From the very first day that I sat down with them over a beer to chat about their upcoming nuptials, they have been VERY clear about what they don’t want in their photos– cheese.

I have to admit, when they approached me about maternity photos this past fall, I was a bit surprised. Maternity photos? For Carolyn and Ross? Surely that’s too “cheesy”?! They were quick to add that they would never have approached ANYONE but me for the task, because they knew that I ‘got it’ and would keep the session down to earth and true to them. It was flattering to be trusted so implicitly. It is refreshing to work with clients who understand & appreciate my style so well… and vice-versa.

So, now here they are. Welcoming their newest addition a (…you guessed it) absolutely perfect little girl. Lana. She’s full of life, vivacious, & endlessly charming…. not unlike her wonderful Momma.

Welcome, sweet Lana. I can’t wait to watch you grow.

Baby Melanie!

One month old, and weighing in at not much over 6lbs, baby Melanie was a tiny little angel to shoot! I shot her beautiful Momma in July and (as always) it was such a joy to get to see her again, this time with a wee one in tow. Melanie was wide awake and happy as a clam for our whole shoot, and tolerated her outfit changes and prop changes like an old pro. She’s just too cute for words– and look at all that hair! I could just eat her up.

Charlotte

I had the pleasure of shooting little baby Charlotte this morning. The weather was nice for us so we were able to head outside for a few shots, which was a real treat. Little Charlotte is SO adorable with those wonderfully expressive dark eyes and that beautiful hair is just too good to be true. She was also so great to work with- very laid back and tolerant. I could have shot her for an entire additional hour and I don’t think she would have minded one bit!
