I love taking pictures of children. Capturing a child’s personality is what I do and it is so amazing to see the many different personalities.  Sometimes my favorite shots end up being the ones where they look at me with a very serious face or even while they are throwing a fit.  It captures the essence of childhood.

When I was asked to take the school photos at Berry Patch Early Learning Center (fantastic preschool btw) I was really excited.   Sooooo many awesome kids all in one place and I got to take a picture of them all.  It was so much fun!  Here are a few samples of my school photo day! I can’t wait to go back!

This is Sophia and her little sister Ava. I have known Sophia since she was a brand new baby girl …. well … actually since she was still in her mommy’s belly. Now she is turning 4 !!!  And she has a 8 month old baby sister that I have known since she was still ‘cooking’ too.   Time flies!  This is one of the families that has been coming to me regularly for many years. I love forming relationships with my clients and see the kids walk in the door excited instead of scared, because they already know me!

This family has followed me after my move to Westminster even though the drive is quite a bit further now. There really is no bigger compliment than that!

I was so excited to see them back a few days ago.  Both girls are so beautiful and so sweet. It is always a joy to work with them! I can’t wait for Ava’s cake smash session in October!!

The mom of these two cuties won her mini session through a FB contest recently.  I was excited to meet her and her two gorgeous children. Her son, Robbie, is your typical 10 year old boy that would much rather be out playing football than posing for pictures while her daughter, Kylie, is your typical girl that didn’t mind to be in the spotlight at all.  Haha.  Those two were a lot of fun and OMG – how gorgeous is Kylie’s hair????



He tried so hard not to smile. Got him anyway  🙂RK2



Her brother asked her to throw a girly pose and she did this. Love it! RK3RK4RK5

Karen came to me with her sweet dog Kizzy to get some updated photos to use for her business. As soon as she walked in the door you could just feel the warm and gentle personality she has. It was a pleasure working with her and Kizzy, and her love for animals is written all over her.

If you have experienced the loss of a beloved pet before, you know the heartache that comes with it. Our pets are like our children. They are part of our family. They are faithful companions and best friends.  It is hard to reach the point where you know their life is nearing the end. All you want is for your animal to be pain free and comfortable.

Taking your animal to the vet for “hospice” care and when the time comes .. to let them go to sleep, may seem like the only option. You know your animal is scared and doesn’t understand what is going on. It is breaking your heart.

If you find yourself in this situation, please contact Karen Randall. Karen is a veterinarian that has found her calling in supporting animals through the end of their life. She will come to your home to care for the animal and when the time has come, she will let the animal go to sleep in the comfort of his/her home, surrounded by everything and everyone that is familiar to them.

It takes a person with a big heart to dedicate her life to something this heartbreaking. She finds comfort in knowing, that she makes the last few moments better for the animal and the family.

You can read more about Karen and “Solace Veterinary Services” on her website. www.solaceveterinaryservices.com 


Thank you, Karen, for the wonderful service that you do!

This handsome young man is Max. Max just turned 1 Year old and came to my studio to capture his first experience with cake. Usually you either have the kind of kid that sees the cake, possible touches it with the tip of his finger and then wails, just because …. or you have the one that looks at the cake and digs as deep into it as he can, trying to inhale it through every opening of their body. And then there is Max. He touched it, looked at it, tasted it carefully … didn’t cry but didn’t get excited either. He preferred looking at it and playing with it over eating it.  I know, in about 4 years he will look back at this and think “Why the heck wasn’t I taking advantage of having an entire cake in front of me??”   Haha.


Max is soooo adorable and I had a blast working with him! Happy Birthday handsome dude!
