I was excited to get to photograph baby Reagan in my studio. For me and I hope for the family, it is easier having a studio to photograph a newborn. All of my backgrounds, lighting, and props, are ready when the family arrives, making the sessions go much more smoothly. Plus the parents do not have to clean their house for me to take pictures in their home. I know that would be the last thing I would want to do after just giving birth. I am truly blessed that I could convert our nursery for our three boys into a space where I can capture special moments for families with their little ones.
I had a great time opening up my studio for baby Benjamin. What a happy little boy! My favorite moment of the session was when his mommy gave him a kiss and he turned and gave her a big kiss right back. I am so glad I was able to capture these precious moments for their family..

I love books, especially children's books. I love the stories, the message, and the silliness. . I think my greatest moments with my children have been when we would sit together and read books. As a stay at home mom, this was the one activity I did not mind doing over and over again. With my first son, we had very few books, so The Foot Book, Mr Brown Can Moo, Can You? and Oh the Places You Go have been permanently etched into my memory. When my husband deployed, we recorded him reading books and would give our son a new book every week, for him to enjoy with his dad on TV. Still makes me cry when I see some of those books. Now as the kids are older, we look forward to our DEAR time before bed, where we drop everything and read, then we do an Examen prayer and listen to an excellent audio book, The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer. It is an activity that my teenage to preschool boys all enjoy. Since books have been important to me as a parent, I like to capture these moments for my clients as well. I love capturing the closeness that a book brings.
