lis {portrait photography}

I wasn't going to share these, but then decided I loved them too much not to.  I told her, "it's fun editing photographs of your best friend because I know all the expressions and which ones are authentically you," and it's true.  Aren't I lucky to have such a beautiful best friend?  Good thing I'm waaay beyond the whole teenage jealousy phase.

We shot outside for, oh, maybe three minutes.  It was coooold!  And her little boy was crying through the sliding glass doors, which was heartbreaking and also a little funny.  Also heartbreaking was that my lens died just as we were about to begin.  Agh!  So I had to dust off my 18-55 mm kit lens (the only other one I had at the time), and felt grateful that this wasn't a paying session!  We did the remainder inside her house, which turned out to be perfect because the last photo of her surrounded by her books?  That's the authentic Lis.

curtis + mary {family photography}

This is such a great family.  Curtis and Mary are friends of ours from the good ol' New York days.  And now look at these beautiful children!  We had so much fun; I wish I could share all of them.  Enjoy your preview guys!

This one is my most favorite:

And this is how you know the photo shoot is over:

hailey {newborn photography}

This sweet little babe was only nine days new.  Isn't she perfect?  I love shooting newborns.  We had such gorgeous light, and little Hailey cooperated so well.  Her cute big sister was also fun to work with, but as two-year olds go, ran out of patience early on.  :)  Still I love her expressions.  

Congratulations, Natalie.  Your girls are darling and you look fabulous!  Thank you for letting me capture this time for you.

johnny {two years}

I cannot believe how time has flown; this adorable nephew of mine turned two this past month.  I love his beautiful blue eyes, love his incredible vocabulary and squeaky little voice, love that he and Ben are buddies.  And I love his mama, too.  I'm so glad she decided to be included in this little mini shoot we did.

Happy Birthday, Johnny!

chloe {teen}

Chloe just turned fourteen.  Isn't she gorgeous?  I fit this shoot in the night before my hubby and I left on a cruise, and due to traffic we arrived much later than I had hoped.  I despaired as I sat in my car watching the beautiful evening light disappear!  Fortunately I had a flash with me, and we definitely used it.  I so prefer the look of natural light, but in this case I was really happy with our results.  Some of these are still shot with natural light; can you tell which ones?
