Two of my favorite ladies had Cole about 6 months ago. I look back at the first time I photographed him and I cannot only believe how big he is, but it’s more crazy to see how teeny he was! I know that is probably a normal reaction, but I have pretty much zero experience with babies. Everything I know, I’ve learned from my clients. :-D KB & Angela continually invite me back to their home to document this little bugger and I cannot be more thankful to have them in my life.

I just love Annmarie. She was one of my June brides who turned into good friend. When she asked me to photograph her in a lake with her dress on, I was a little hesitant because I’ve never done a “trash the dress/rock the frock/whatever you want to call it” session. There have been a lot of photographic firsts with this lovely lady, and how else do you improve on your craft besides constantly trying new things?
I love this last frame

It was the first week of May and spring was finally here that I met up with the Hesbach family. I hold a special place in my heart for Emma’s physical therapist, Amie, and was so happy to be able to meet her family and see her outside the hospital. Emma had her knee replacement 1 year ago today. I know how over-dramatic I was/am about it, but when you have an active dog and lifestyle and you’re told you have to stay put and keep quiet for 8 weeks which turned into 8 months, while planning a wedding across the country, my dramatic attitude took over. You see, the surgeon told me Emma would be ready to run and back to normal in 8 weeks. This was not even close to the truth. She still had a scrawny right leg 4 months later. We were seeing Amie once a week to try to build muscle but she was still not allowed to run or participate in any fun summer activities. Visiting Amie was not only for Emma’s weekly PT session, but it became a therapy session for me as well. I can’t thank her enough for all that she did for Emma (and me!) during her recovery.

Courtney contacted me a couple weeks ago about her pup, Spaulding, who had just been diagnosed with cancer. She wanted photographs of him then, so that she could remember him as he always was: spunky, cute, squirrel-obsessed and happy.
I didn’t stop thinking about Spaulding after I met him. A sweet Pitbull who, when I entered their apartment and sat on the floor, immediately came to me and put his chin on my knee while I talked with Courtney, occasionally flashing me the whale eyes (don’t know what whale eyes are? Check the 5th image down). Spaulding passed away on Saturday. He was a master of the paw-dangle, and loved to swim.
