Katherine (+ Murphy)

Photographing Katherine is an annual tradition, and one that I look forward to year after year (after year). Each year she has a little more personality, a larger vocabulary, a bigger view of the world. This time she let me stay afterwards and play in her room for a little while…we’re buddies like that.

Murphy, on the other hand, seems to like me a little less every year (Hi Murphy! WHATAGOODBOYYOUAREYESYOUARE!!!). Between you and me, I think his grey is starting to show. But it makes him look ever so dignified, dontcha think?

Our annual photo session has one added dimension of greatness…Katherine’s mommy waves goodbye and heads off to work, and leaves me with Katherine and her sweet Nanny Kylie to play and do our thing. And so, we did! We walked the Murphster, played a little dress-up, showed off our ballet moves, and even put on a little fashion show just for me in between outfit changes.

Love. This. Girlchild.

Unplanned surprises bring the most joy…

Yesterday’s session was centered around the newest little one in this family of five…baby brother Michael will soon be here to join in the fun, and after last week’s family of four girls, I had a blast playing with these three soon-to-be big brothers.

See how beautiful mom is? Radiant…peaceful…she handles being the only girl in a pack of boys VERY well.

I wanted to make sure we had a few sweet images of the current baby of the family.  Baby #4 was a surprise, and little Andrew is going to do a great job of showing him the ropes.

This is one of my favorite images from this session…a tangled mess of limbs in the background, laughter and tickles, and a big eyed brother in the front.  I *heart* this.


The best Valentine’s dates are found here…

Sunday night was a very special night for several families in the area.  Heroes for Children is, as many know, a childrens’ charity that is near and dear to my heart.  I am always happy to help them in any way that I can, and was thrilled to be asked to photograph their annual Valentine’s Dinner.

Every family in attendance has been touched by childhood cancer, and although they were brought together by a terrible thing, the love that each family has for each other made it a wonderful night and a perfect Valentine’s celebration.  I had an absolute blast photographing these precious families, and I pulled a few off my card to show here.

HFC-Thank you for asking me to be there on Sunday night.
