Dreamy…Creamy… A few captures of baby Willow, just two weeks old, so fresh, soft, and sweet.
Willow with her two very happy, proud, and thankful grandmas — Grandma Linda and Grandma Sandy ADORE her! Willow, you are indeed a heaven-sent gift!
Here’s Willow in a little Christmas red… While Mommy was at a meeting, I captured this special Daddy & Willow love!

In September I was blessed to meet Stan, his wife, Pat, their children and grandchildren. They asked me to photograph their family in their yard and home and capture relationships and playful settings. I was so touched to see their loving interactions and how much everyone loved Stan, aka “Grumpy.” What an endearing nickname. He was anything but grumpy. He was full of loving words and hugs, and his eyes twinkled as he gathered the little grandkids to him, read them books, shared treats, and talked with them.
Stan entered heaven’s glory this past week after a challenging illness. I wish I had had the time to get to know Stan better. However, I’m grateful for the two occasions we had to talk. I’m so thankful that Stan and Pat and their family know and believe that Jesus is their Savior and Friend! It’s always a comfort to know that a loved one is safe and in perfect joy in Jesus’ everlasting arms. And that all Christians will someday rejoice together in the heavenly home Jesus prepares for us!
Jesus said to Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die.” John 11:25-26
The A Family braved the hard frost and cold temps this morning and gave lots of smiles! In between locations at the park, we had our coats and gloves on, and they just kept the smiles a’comin’. At times I couldn’t see the boys’ hands ’cause they tucked them into their sleeves. So we kept moving–jumping, skipping, and everything boys like to do.
Such a cute group of kids and grownups! Baby A and Toddler L were a happy pair with their cold, red noses. I was happy to get some of the sun’s flare today too. God shined on us and He warmed our backs and our hearts.
Thank you, A Family, for the opportunity to capture your dear family and your love for one another!

Seven grandchildren, three family units, and three generations comprised an Autumn family photo session at a pretty park. This is a sampler of the shots straight out of camera from our evening time together as the sun began to set and the shadows grew long.
What a beautiful loving family they are! And what polite and helpful children — their parents and grandparents can be proud and so thankful! I’m blessed to have been your family’s “shooter”!

It was a great privilege and honor to follow three generations of the R & C Family yesterday and capture some everyday-living snapshots of them in their beautiful yard and home. What a blessing to have five beautiful grandchildren age 5 and younger! They alone made the day quite exciting!
They laughed and played. They read books and had snacks. Rain fell while we made our own sunshine.
Just being together was a gift–their real presence in the present.
Thank you for having me shoot you all during your precious moments!

Eight month old Ava Gabrielle is a mover and a shaker baby! She’s a fast crawler and has begun to pull herself up to stand along the furniture. We had a play date today both indoors and outdoors, and she’s 100% pure joy to follow and capture! Her two little bottom teeth just sparkle, and oh, those big brown peepers she has just twinkle in the light! Thank You, God, for Ava and her family!

I was privileged to shoot Bene, her sons Logan and Julian, and her niece Constance in a beautiful garden recently.
Constance visited her Aunt Bene and Uncle Jean Michel this past month and will soon return to Belgium.
She adores her little cousins Logan and Julian, and gave them her precious attention and care as we played in the children’s garden. Constance enjoys modeling so I also took some individual photos for her to save from her visit in the USA.
Bon voyage, Constance! Au revoir!
Thank you, Bene, for giving me this fun photo opportunity with your kiddos!
