Before I am a photographer, I am a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend. Maybe that's why I cry during every father daughter dance. I laugh at every toast. I well up when an Officiant pronounces a couple husband and wife. I buzz with joy chasing children around the playground. I feel awe when a newborn's tiny hand clutches my pinky finger. I draw from the emotions I have experienced through my own life's most precious moments to know when and how to capture those of others, and I usually can't help feeling overwhelmed myself! The emotional rush I feel when I'm behind the camera is what makes me love what I do. The joy I bring others through photography is what makes me do what I love.

Introducing Baby Kenyon...

Last week I had the joy of meeting Baby Kenyon, the beautiful son of Denise and Doug. He is simply adorable!

Denise is an amazing singer and songwriter and I was thrilled when she suggested that we use her music in the slideshow. Please do take the time to see more of my favorites in the slideshow here and enjoy Denise's beautiful voice and lyrics.

I first met Denise and Doug back in September when we got together to photograph Denise's maternity photos. Of course I am hopelessly behind in blogging (as I am sure you have all noticed - something to be rectified soon as I have tons and tons of new portrait sessions and wedding updates to post!), so this is running a bit out of order chronologically!

Denise was so stunning and I really enjoyed our session together. Here are a few of my favorites. There are, of course, more in the
slideshow here which features another beautiful song by Denise.

I was looking at my pics for the 100th time on your site and finally decided to look at your other sessions (cant imagine I share you with other clients)ha ha ! As I scrolled through the loverly photos, I come across our last 2 sessions. I have to admit that the maternity session was so much fun. Doug and I are divas and divos in action just waiting for our close ups. You captured the boldness and demure of our feelings and my belly.
You go girl!

WOW What a beautiful photograph series. I really like the one of the husband with the hand on his wife's belly, and the look of respect and awe in his eyes as he watches his wife change form, with the baby inside! So lovely!
