I had the pleasure of visiting with some Marmalade favorites just over a week ago.  I’ve been photographing E since she was about 3 or 4 months old – little beautiful baby is now all grown up (4 years old!) and has a gorgeous little sister.  I was thrilled to meet the delightful S and see their family again!  Their dads are remarkable and have their hands full with these gorgeous girls.

To Mike & Michael…thank you for allowing me into your lives once again and letting me capture your princesses for you!!  On with the sneak peek…

I love it – looks like they’re deep in conversation…what could they be talking about?

Little S has the most amazing eyes, doesn’t she?

    Beautiful! Love the tiny piano! And yes, the eyes are gorgeous!

I am about a week & a half behind … I can’t seem to catch up this last few weeks, with school out and all my little projects in final stages + a busy June, I just can’t keep up!!  So for my clients who are patiently waiting for sneak peeks – please accept my apologies for being behind.

Here’s just a taste of some of the sneak peek action.  Beautiful M showing us that the sneak peeks REALLY are coming!

One of the highlights of my 2009 season was meeting L&A and photographing their newborn baby boy last June.  Some of my favorite moments of new parenthood were during their session – they were completely enamored with their baby boy.

Fast forward and this handsome guy is even more adored.  I enjoyed seeing him and L&A the other day and apologize for their belated sneak peek (eek, the end of May is always so chaotic for parents of school aged kids!).  Here are just a few sneak peeks from this handsome boys’ one year session:

    Beautiful as always – that one with his parents is to die for!

  • Janine Dietz - May 27, 2010 - 3:12 pm

    So adorable. I LOVE that second b&w — what a beautiful moment to capture between a mother and her child!

  • Sherri W - May 29, 2010 - 10:25 am

    OH I love that first family shot of them. That is so unbelievably sweet. THAT is a memory I’d want to cherish forever! That image right there!

  • Cynthia McIntyre - June 1, 2010 - 8:53 am

    I love the look on the boys face as he looks over his mothers shoulder. You can see that he feels safe and secure in his mothers arms. GREAT JOB!

  • Corey Sewell - June 2, 2010 - 4:27 pm

    Beautiful! I love them all but that one with Mom is my favorite – so sweet!

  • Daveen - June 10, 2010 - 9:02 pm

    So, so lovely! What a sweet little guy and gorgeous portraits!!!

The other day I had the most fabulous time with some of the most awesome kids in the ‘burbs.  I was lucky enough to get to visit with M1and her brother C several years ago at their home and this time they came out to see me with their little sister (we’ll call her M2)  🙂 

Thanks to their wonderful mom, Jackie, for bringing them out to the studio!  Jackie it was so wonderful to see you again and thanks for the marmalade!!  (The *real* marmalade).  I’ll have to upload a shot of it on another day.  Mmmmm…

Without further adieu, here is C, M1 and M2 !  What a beautiful set of sibs.


and because I love it so and Jackie got an LCD sneak peek on the day of the session, my buddy SuperC!

    I really love your work.

    That first one is to die for! Love how it just says “childhood”!

  • Corey Sewell - May 11, 2010 - 7:35 am

    Love these! They both capture childhood so well!

  • Lisa Kelly - May 23, 2010 - 5:07 pm

    I am dying over the umbrella shot, how gorgeous.

  • Sophie Crew - June 10, 2010 - 12:35 am

    I am loving that umbrella shot! It’s perfect!!

Before I get going on sneak peeking…I must say that this is the most amazing April ever!!  The flowers are in bloom as if it was May, the weather is gorgeous and just wow on the spring colors.  I’ve been taking almost daily long walks with good friends and enjoying this crazy awesome weather and the fabulous, well, everything!  I hope you too are getting outside to enjoy the gorgeousness.  Life is good.

I had the privilege of photographing S last year, in a session with her adorable & funny brother.  But her mom, Faith, wanted a session just for her.  I love the idea of photographing a child separately from their siblings – it gives them a definite feeling of being special, being in the spotlight and showcasing their unique qualities.  I love Faith for seeing this as an advantage!  And while yesterday was a just a tad chilly, S braved the cold (as all great supermodels do) and we managed to get some incredible images.  Thank you S & Faith for coming out yesterday!  I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks!

    These will mean SO MUCH to her as an adult – she will always know how much she was adored!
