Photographing Children and their Families

I really enjoy my photography and shoot something everyday.  Sometimes I'm working with my little G11 and capturing things like empty houses or plates of food for some idea floating around in the back of my head.  At other times I'm capturing nature scenes, or travel icons, or completing some school assignment.

I've been posting images from all these different streams of thought on this blog.  Many of these images have nothing to do with my people photography - but have a lot to say about who I am, and what I find interesting.  People seem genuinely confused when they come across my personal work when they are looking at this blog.

I got some advice a few weeks ago - "Stop posting everything on your blog. Post just your portrait images, if you want people to contact you about creating their portrait."

So here goes.... Portraits and head shots are the focus of this blog.  Children and their families will be the priority....

P.S.  You can still see my other images - I'll be posting travel, street scenes and conceptual pieces as well as school assignments  at  Photo School News and More

Emmalynn Seven Days Old

The love of my life
The love of my life,
The light in my world,
It's only you,
My precious baby girl

Welcome Madison

"A of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys we can ever know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in our world today."

I love this portrait of Madison and her grandmother


"Sweet Baby of mine You embraced my heart and Stole my breath away."

Miss Riley came to visit me when she was ten days old.  What a precious, bright eyed little girl.

Big sister Dakota is already in love.

  We finally got her to close her eyes and take a bit of a nap - but by that time we were all exhausted.
