Donna's Family Maternity Session

If these cute boys look familiar, it is because I recently did a photo session for their third birthday.  Donna and Will are expecting their third child in a few weeks and wanted to get some family and maternity pictures before this new little one arrives.  Anytime I work with a family with small children I always ask what are the "must have" photos.  Children have a short attention span and can be unpredictable it is important to get the must have shots first.  In this case, we started with the family shots, then got a few with the boys and their sweet mommy.  Once they were done, they were rewarded with Dunkin Donuts (yum) and ate them cheerfully while I got a few shots with their parents together.  Will is a great dad and took the boys off to the Dog Park to see the dogs while we got some maternity shots of Donna alone.  This is by far one of my favorite families and the portraits are just stunning from this shoot.  I cannot wait til your little (boy or girl) arrives in the next month!


Meet Isabelle.  She was less than 2 weeks old when these were taken.  She was so tiny and cute! 

Isabelle has two amazing siblings.  Meet Jude.  This kid is energetic and super fun.  He is a big helper already!

Meet Julianne.  She is full of laughs and very nurturing to her new baby sister. 

I absolutely adore these in black and white. 

The lighting was just beautiful.  These were actually taken in their backyard but I love the forest feel. 

Thanks for having me hang out with your family for the day Kristen and Jonathan.  Your children are just jewels!

Charlie and Owen

I first met Charlie and Owen over two years ago in nursery at DPC.  I have fond memories of these sweet baby boys who are now turning 3!  I cannot believe how quickly time goes by.  I am amazed to see their personalities continue to develop as they grow into little boys.  They were absolutely precious this past Monday at their photo shoot at Furman, where their wonderful parents met.  Here are my favorites from the shoot!  



Why feed the ducks and fish when you can the eat bread yourself?  hehe
