On Mini Sessions

Posted on

I have to tell you a secret: I hate mini sessions.   In theory they are an awesome way to bring in a bunch of new clients and bring in some easy money for a day’s work.  In reality, they are physically draining and artistically stifling. Why? I want to give each family pictures that […]

I know how lucky I am to have a gorgeous backyard – the yard was what sold me on our fixer-upper of a house!  I fell in love with the yard before I ever set foot in this house.  Between the pond, the old trees, the flowers that lived here before we did, and the […]

Birthday parties for young kids are some of my favorite jobs.  I can’t count the number of times I giggled while shooting this most recent birthday party… it was nearly constant.  These kids were so full of joy!  It is fabulous work being a fly on the wall for events like these.  I will say […]

This fall, I was hired to take some pictures of a beloved family pet who was very elderly.  This sweet dog has a family who loves him so much that he even gets massages!  Although he got tired pretty quickly, we managed to capture a few sweet memories during the session. We were so lucky […]

Pumpkin Raisin (Paleo) Muffins

Posted on

I made these muffins for a brunch I attended recently and they came out so well I figured I’d better share the recipe.  The only flour in this recipe is coconut flour, and only 1/2 cup of it.  Sound too good to be true?  Try it for yourself – you won’t be disappointed! These are […]
