got to catch up with cutie pies, jaxon and enzo, again for jaxon’s first birthday party… always fun hanging out with them! wanted to post a few pics to share…

jaxon was born in the year of the dragon…
guests arrived during one of our many snowfalls this year…
i like this picture because it looks like enzo is flying through the air…
jaxon first went to grab the basketball for his zhua zhou, but got a little bit scared when everyone cheered. even when his parents went to hand it to him, he was a little bit skeptical…
for his second attempt, he grabbed the money….
mom gets a little cake smash on her face…
jaxon was pretty low key at first about his cake smash, but once he got some in his hair, it made him really happy…
i captured enzo’s first birthday party 2 years ago…. thought it was cute to put their photos next to one another…
the kids all got to adopt a dragon on their way out the door. this little guy wanted to eat his dragon. so cute!

great time getting to see enzo and jaxon again and capture them as they grow up so quickly….


the cool thing about being this many years into wedding photography is getting to see my couples again and meeting the little people they have created. i shot dana and joe’s wedding almost 4 years ago. between dana and her sister joanne, i’ve been lucky to shoot these guys every year that i’ve been in business. and now… they are multiplying! 

world…meet ryan.  he is a super lucky guy to be born into a very loving family that i know will spoil and adore him to no end! they were so excited for ryan to arrive that joe’s sister bought a gift certificate for this shoot before dana even told facebook she was pregnant!

so cute!
ryan is a chill baby. but like all babies, they get a little upset from time to time. what makes me happy about this pic is that despite ryan crying a little bit, dana and joe are still smiling. while every time a baby cries, parents aren’t exactly going to be smiling about it… i liked capturing this image as a reminder to them for years to come when they think the screaming kid years may never end, that there are moments of joys in some unexpected places…
happy baby!
bah! so stinkin’ cute!
i just love his little look he’s giving me chillin’ with his dad on the couch…
dana and joe’s expressions… priceless…
i feel like he is saying to me…’you’re still here?’…
i love this pic…. i love how dana is smiling and he is just not having it…
because moment’s later… he is completely soothed by his mom
aunt joanne stops by to see her nephew….

how neat it was to catch up with 2 brides, a groom and a super stinkin’ cute baby! so excited for dana and joe and all of their family to have this awesome new addition. i love when awesome people multiply!

enzo is no stranger to my blog… i first met enzo when he was one, now he is pushing three and has an adorable addition to his family…
jaxon!
just a few of my favorite pics from catching up with enzo and his newly expanded family. now it is double cuteness overload!
so cute…
i love enzo’s serious look…
adorable!
…and not only are these two cute, they are super sweet as well!


the dubiny family has grown and it was time to capture their newly expanded family…
…and they are a freakin’ cute bunch! 

you just can’t pose this kind of stuff…

i had such a wonderful time hanging out the dubiny family. their smiles are infectious!

sisters…

…new expansions

i spent a lot of time smiling behind the camera while photographing this bunch…

a dad and his daughters…


i say it over and over again, but i’m so lucky to work with such warm, patient and fun people!


i’ve had the pleasuring of photographing the kellogg family since before i had a blog and there were only three of them… it was great catching up with them again. daniel and elizabeth have grown up so much in the last two years while chris and seth haven’t aged a bit!

i love how playful elizabeth and daniel are with one another…

kids in a tree…how life should be…
it’s fun to photograph in the same spot as the last shoot to see the change….
 cutie pies!

elizabeth… full of hugs for her family! such cuties!

i love the exchange of smiles between daniel and elizabeth in this pic….

it’s such an honor to photograph a family as they grow…
