New Families

Last weekend I had the pleasure of covering two events that celebrate life. First was a first birthday party. It’s always nice to cover kids parties because of the energy of the room. The ability of children to get along and play without prejudices or knowing each other beforehand always amazes me. It’s too bad adults don’t always do the same.

The birthday boy is too young to fully understand what’s going on, but he was in good spirits and stayed awake the whole time. I learned that he loves music and dancing. To me, two things I love with babies are listening to them laugh and watching them dance.

The second event I photographed was a baby shower. The way that people are excited to see the mommy to be’s belly and just the general feeling of love in the room is a great thing. What stood out to me about this shower was the chemistry between the parents to be. You can tell that their future daughter is going to have a lot of love around her. I was happy to be a partĀ of it and best wishes to both families that asked me to capture milestones in their lives.DSC_8690DSC_8726DSC_8748DSC_8787DSC_8960-EditDSC_8982-Edit

Holiday Cheer

Yesterday I received something in the mail. The envelope was handwritten, so I figured that it was a Christmas card. I opened the envelope and I was right it was a Christmas card but what made this special was the family that sent me the card is one of my clients using images that I shot.

I always feel good when people use my photography for their cards or social media profiles. As a photographer, it’s quite satisfying to see that people are happy with my work.
