First Day Photo - Mama E & Baby O

For almost a month now I have been doing contract work with a fantastic company called First Day Photo ( - We capture those priceless memories of your baby's first days) and I have been loving every minute of it. Getting to see the gift of new life, sometimes just hours after birth, is truly amazing. It also helps that all of the staff of FDP, my bosses included, are some of the nicest & most helpful people I've ever met. I'm blessed to have joined their family.

If you know anyone that is expecting their own bundle of joy this is unique & thoughtful gift that will last generations to come.

Saturday was a very hectic day at one of our hospitals. I was called in to help another amazingly talented photog (Joy Lengyl - because there were so many appointments that one photographer couldn't do the job alone. But amongst the stress & chaos I got to meet one gorgeous mother and her handsome little man. They made the day so much better and proved to me once again that being a photographer is one of the greatest jobs in the world. Mama E & Baby O were kind enough to give me permission to use their images for my own portfolio so I just had to post a few here.  Enjoy :)

Baby O was loving stretching out any extremity as far as he could. We saw his legs straight up in the air a few times and when I came back to show Mom the pictures he had his legs folded up so his feet were right in his face, ha ha. Mom was sure that was how he was positioned in her tummy, It was adorable. Loved this shot of his little toes all stretched out. 

Have I mentioned yet that I LOVE this job? 
How could I not when I get to see little faces like that everyday! 

Ugh! Those little fingernails get me every time!

Thank you Mama E and Baby O for being your kind & beautiful selves. 
Hope to see you again very soon!

The Oleary Family

Once again I had the pleasure of photographing Michelle and her handsome little man, Isaiah. We had fun running around, throwing leaves into the air, rocks into the lake, going head first down a huge slide and just playing. I love it when I get to watch while my clients grow and document times for them to look back on. So of course I have to start with one image from our session about 7 months ago (I also love doing this because its fun for me to see how far my photography has come since the last time I saw this hot mama & her little stud). Hope you enjoy!

And this is them now...  (October 2010)

Love love love all the different expressions he gave me in the course of about 10 seconds... Adorable!

Sorry for the photo overload, there were just too many images I loved from this session :)
 Can you blame me??

Thanks again you guys!! Hope I can see you very soon!

Stephanie - Rogers HS Class of 2011

I had so much fun running around with Stephanie and her family capturing her senior portraits. They had some great locations! I love it when clients can show me their favorite secret spots. Here are just a few of my most beloved images from Steph's photo shoot. Hope you enjoy!

Precious Baby Maddelyn

It was such a pleasure to photograph this gorgeous little girl again. The first time she was just little over a week old and now this little beauty is almost 7 months, can't believe she's grown so fast.  She had so much fun playing with the tutu, listening to Daddy sing and trying to eat leaves. Maddie I cannot wait until we meet again! 

Enjoy :)

The Nelson Crew

It's not often that I can shoot a family right at home but the Nelson's backyard provided plenty of beautiful locations for us to have some fun. Enjoy!
