One of the very best parts of my job is getting to photograph a family over the years. I first photographed Amantia & Jason before they had kids, and have now had the pleasure of documenting both of their beautiful boys. Ethan is the newest addition, and was an absolute angel for our portrait session back in December... so much so that he managed to take top billing on my website! I can't wait to see him and his whole family this summer for their six month session...

I know, I KNOW... it's taken me WAY too long to report back after my trip to the Dominican Republic for Kelli & Jeff's wedding last weekend! My plan was to write a blog post while I was there, but between a shaky internet connection and the beautiful beaches and palm trees, well, sorry: it just didn't happen :D The ceremony took place on the beach under blue skies, but just a few minutes after they sealed the deal with a kiss, a huge rainstorm blew in off the water and everyone had to run for cover. After the storm blew over, the newlyweds and I hit the beach for a quick sunset shoot and were greeted by an absolutely spectacular full moon rising over the post-storm clouds. Wow...
Kelli & Jeff, I hope you're having a spectacular time on your honeymoon... I can't wait to share lots more of these with you soon!
A couple of weeks ago, I showed you a sneak peek of my portrait session with three year-old Annalise. I mentioned then that the session was remarkable in that it really captured the essence of what it is to be three years old: inquisitive, enthusiastic, and not-to-be pinned down for more than two seconds at a time. As I worked through editing this session, it seemed that every picture told that same story - there were very few images of little Annalise standing still, much less looking directly at the camera. I suppose some might see that as a problem - not having a series of classic "portraits" - but I thought it was perfect: it will recall the sweet, busy-bee reality of three year-old Annalise well into the years where she sits much more than she runs.A couple of times, I was able to catch a stolen glance, but then she was off and running again... I love so many images from this session, but this next one has to be one of my very very favorites... pure, gorgeous, dreamy, rainbow-winged childhood. LOVE!
A beautiful girl with her beautiful parents...
And then a few minutes' rest: cuddling with mom, watching a plane fly by, and taking a peek at the world from an ant's perspective.Then, batteries recharged, she took flight again!Quinn and Maarten, thank you for a lovely morning. These pictures make me smile ear to ear, and I hope they'll do the same for you for years to come!
