that s the sweetest baby smile ever :-)

I am not kidding when I say I am considering adding a few more kids to the five I already have so I can have some newborn pictures like these. Maybe some of your clients will just let me use there pictures and I can say they are my kids. That would be easier than having a few more. A lot less expensive too. ;) You have some serious talent!

Hello there! Your photos are amazing! So beautiful! Question: While looking at your “display ideas”, I saw your daughter’s cute bedroom and I love the scallop trim! So cute! Can you please share where you found it? I would love to know! Thanks!

These guys are some of my favorite clients.  They are so nice and came all the way from New Mexico to get their new little one’s pictures.
I’m glad she was so good for the shoot.  Isn’t she so precious!


I agree Karina. Those rugs are just the cutest. I really wish I knew where to find one. Then again, the babies are just gorgeous.

This little guy was one of my easiest newborns to date.  He slept through everything.  The hands under the chin shot, he sat there for at least a minute.  And I love that Danny wanted to try the new scale shot out with him.


Your work is stunning! I love it ALL!!!!
