Lobsters Maternity 2.0

It’s been a full year since I shot this session. Confession: I’m the worst at blogging my sessions. Many weddings, maternity sessions, births, newborn sessions, and family sessions have yet to see my website. I’m working on it. Four kids. For mini snapshots of my most recent works as it comes, you gotta follow my…

They were enjoying a family vacation together while Mindy also shot a wedding (I love doing this too – traveling for a wedding or shoot and bringing the fam along. It’s really the best!).

I’ve walked with them through some pretty incredible moments in their journey, honored to capture their babe born sleeping and the birth of their third while Sam was far, far away (still waiting to blog that one – we won’t talk about how behind I am in blogging). For this session,…

I’m in love with this session. This family – this session – represents so much of why I love photographing families, and even more so why film can be such a beautiful medium for capturing the love and emotion and honesty in a family. Our session took place across the street from their home. I…

This session makes my heart sing. I love to tell a story with my camera – and Jacob and Jenna allowed me to carry out my vision for a lifestyle maternity session at sunrise on a local beach. My dear friend KC helped me dream up and execute this shoot and the four of us…

Sam & Sarah {We Still Do}
