Family portrait session, perfect for holiday cards.

We loved the warm tones in this family session with Shandi, Rob and their three girls.  Along with the portraits we designed for them, Shandi wanted a classic, simple holiday card to send to family and friends.  I loved the casual images she chose, especially the ‘walking away’ shot, which she used on the back of the card.  Such a natural, un-posed look.

Not your typical portraits; Family holiday session

What makes me smile? When a client says ‘we want something different, something more artistic, something not typical’.

Renae and Jesse have been wonderful clients for years. I shot their engagement session and their wedding in 2005. And early last year, they called me for their newborn session with their adorable son Jaiden. I love working with them – they’re fun, artsy, and, as you can see, stunning.

Here’s what we came up with…just love this.

Adoring Emma: baby photo session

Newborns are amazing little bundles of life, always fascinating to photograph. And then there are the parents.  At baby portrait sessions, I love including mom and dad in the session so I can document that powerful connection between newborn and new parents.    I recently photographed Emma, an adorable and sweetly-tempered 3 month-old, for the first of her Bella Baby portrait sessions, along with parents Lisa and Sebastien. The look of joy on their faces  was undeniable. Truly, becoming parents is one of life’s finer moments.
