Mother Daughter Time

At fourteen, there's just so much that you can't do
And you can't wait to move out
Someday and call your own shots
But don't make her drop you off around the block
Remember that she's getting older too
And don't lose the way that you dance around in your pjs getting ready for school
-T. Swift

I often have clients ask me if their tween or teenager is "too old" for a session. Absolutely not! All of the childhood years go by far too quickly (although sometimes it doesn't feel that way!) and having this moment of your child's adolescent captured in  photographs is important, too. Plus, they are great to use at graduation time  : )

These ladies are very special and special to me. The type of women who stay in your heart for a lifetime. 
And their dog. I could have photographed that pup ALL DAY LONG. 

I love all three of you. xox

Lovely Little Lady

"A daughter is a miracle that never ceases to be miraculous." 

Isn't that the truth? And watching this mama with her precious girl melted my heart. She already fit together so well. Who looks this natural with a little nugget?! I could not handle her sleeping face! TOO CUTE!!

Everyday Magic

"Be a seeker of everyday magic." 

Hello friends! Anyone who follows me on Instagram will notice I use a hashtag "everyday magic" a lot. It's one of the things I strive to do in my work. In a world of Pinterest pressure and photoshop use, my style of photography is: what is.
You & your loved ones as you are at this moment in time. 
All the beautiful details that make you, you. 

That everyday magic.

Those baby toes.
Those smiles that burst into laughter.
That look between you and your partner.
That book you have read 1,000 times. 
Those gray hairs from nights of worry.
The knee scrapes from the inaugural bike ride.
The way your baby smiles in her sleep.
The way your children play together.
A favorite outfit worn all the time.
A lovey who has become part of the family.
A family made up of love.
Those moments who wish would last forever. 
Those moments you want to roll your eyes.
The days that fly by.
The hours that creep by.
All of it.

The feeling of love.

Because of all this, of life, flies by much too fast. 
Why not celebrate the everyday magic?
