I have been so fortunate to photograph this family each time they come home for the summer from Taiwan. This time we just couldn’t coordinate with Dad’s schedule so it became a mommy and me session! I was so excited when the pulled up and to see that the oldest son remembered me from last summer. By the middle of the shoot I was carrying one on my hip while shooting the other, tickling them both or trying to shoot with them in my lap. I loved it! I can’t wait to see them again next summer… this time perhaps we won’t have another muggy evening!

Yes, this brother and sister are THIS cute! The whole time photographing them I kept saying “I wish I was videotaping them too” so that you could see the personalities that go with these bring brown eyes! I can’t wait for the whole family shoot this fall!

I had so much fun meeting this family and spending the day at the park with them! When this little guy smiles- his whole face lights up!

I have had such a great year with newborns and this one is no exception! Sweet baby, relaxed first-time parents and a big, hairy, happy dog (who is the real baby in the house!).

I was SO excited for Marie and Luke’s engagement session! Their wedding is in July and I couldn’t wait to hang out with them a bit and get to know them before the big day. They both were so relaxed and easy going and could never stop smiling (even their beautiful 1 yr. old pup couldn’t have been better!) which makes for the best session. I can’t WAIT for the wedding!

It was so great to see the DuVal family again and to meet their new baby girl! Her big brother was still the cutest thing ever and they are going to have so much fun playing together when she is older. This was one of those sessions where I had the hardest time choosing which pics to post… so I just posted a ton!
