Making a Change



Clients, friends, followers - I have come to the decision that I will not be continuing my photography business. I can't bear taking down my page just yet. I love to scroll through and remember the families I have met over the last 5 years. I do not expect to return to business in the future, but I do hope to get back to sharing personal projects in photography. And in the future, even if it is not through the lens, I hope I will see those of you I have had the pleasure of photographing!

Family sessions are often a reason for celebrations: a milestone, a birthday, distant family visiting. This session was a different kind of celebration of a special family member.

Meet Gus. Wandering, sniffing, sweet hound dog.

Gus's mom contacted me, hoping she and her husband could find someone to capture their family while they were in town. She explained that Gus is their baby, he has cancer, and they wanted some photographs to help remember him when he is gone. During their session, Gus had a great time, sniffed lots of grass, got lots of cuddles.

I know it will be difficult to say goodbye to Gus when he has had his last walk in the park and belly rub. He will know he was loved.

This is one of my favorite families to hang out with, so I was excited to meet up with them at Willoughby Farm for a family portrait session.

Be prepared for a bit of a walk if you choose this location. There are some gorgeous wild grasses and flowers in the nature / hiking area behind the farm, but there is a steep hill to climb on your way back to the farm. I'd say it's worth the walk!

It doesn't get much cuter than this. Twin 1 year old girls! It was a brisk December day, so I met this family at their home for the girls' session. The babies seemed to be taking turns being in a smiley mood, and both of them wanted to crawl right out of the frame.

The P family spends a lot of time in Forest Park, and during the fall it is a perfect place for a family photo session. We met at the Muny and lucked out with a warm November day and a gorgeous sunset. Mom admitted that her family hadn't had portraits taken since these girls were babies. I am so glad she chose me to capture them along with her handsome boys!

This fun family met me for a session at Willoughby Farm last fall. This is one of my favorite spots for summer and fall sessions. The kids had a stomping competition on the steps to get some smiles and got to climb on a tractor when they needed a break.

Look at this gorgeous girl! E turned one year old last fall and enjoyed some cake at the apple orchard in celebration. She was a speedy runner, too, so it was nice to have Mom and Grandma along to assist. I loved her dresses and all the accessories mom brought for her session. And look at that fancy cake! Can't wait to see you at your next milestone!
