Levi is sweet, adorable, and on the move! I’ve been taking pictures of this lovely family since big brother was a baby, and now little brother will be having his first birthday in no time. It seems like yesterday we were at his mommy’s maternity session, anticipating his arrival. You can see the pretty pictures here. I am looking forward to Levi’s birthday session…we’ll be returning to the Springfield Botanical Center and the gorgeous Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden, where we did the maternity session. How fun! I bet we’ll be chasing a toddling Levi through the flowers and trees. He was speed crawling at his nine-month session, so he’ll be off and running any day now!
I always have such a nice time with this little cutie-pie and his family. We got these photos at their pretty home recently, just playing and relaxing and enjoying sweet little boys!
Chris and Lori, I am really grateful to be the photographer that gets to capture these fun times as Ethan and Levi grow. Thank you so much!!

Oh, I do love Valentine’s Day! And these little cherubs made the anticipation even better…just thinking about the photos and cards family members would be receiving made me smile during the shoots, during post-production, and I’m still smiling now as I put this blog post together. These Valentine Mini Sessions were quick and special and fun. And the children were so CUTE. I sure do enjoy being with my little Valentines!
Sometimes little ones just don’t have the same ideas we do. Little Fionna is such a pretty and sweet girl, and her birthday photos from last spring are just beautiful. She felt a little sad this particular day, but her Mommy had such a lovely attitude about Fionna’s tears:
“You did make lemon meringue pie from those lemons! They look wonderful. She is crying, but you caught her beautifully in the moment as she really is at this age. I have no idea how you did it, but you caught the best of Fionna in the moment. She looks so beautiful and I will treasure these images forever.”
I love that…and never fear, we will be getting more pictures of Fionna soon as her birthday approaches. Also, of her big brother, who is graduating from high school soon! We’ll be taking his senior pics in the next little bit. I also can’t wait to get a few of big bro and lil sis together.
A big thank you to these Valentine cuties! I am planning a Spring Mini Session weekend in April…everyone can wear their Easter outfits, and we’ll have flowers and beautiful Spring colors. As I type these words, I am looking out at the snow and gray skies. Thinking about pretty colors and flowers and children in their Spring clothes is a lovely thing!

Well, they just don’t get much better looking than this fun family! And the kids were all so nice to each other, so sweet. The Snyders wanted a Downtown Session, and I just love spending a Sunday afternoon finding old brick walls and aged wooden doors. And their clothing was SO great! Blacks and grays and silvers along with jeans looked perfect with the colors and textures of the old buildings. I enjoyed every minute of their session, and also every minute of editing!
Catching up with fall/holiay sessions here on the blog is going to be great! I love revisiting these images, and it makes me smile to remember how much I loved taking their pictures. So many of these photos ended up decorating my Christmas card display, too! It doesn’t get much better than that!
