baby caroline.

meet miss caroline.

isn’t she just the sweetest? she was alert when we first started, then quickly fell fast asleep…and from the sweet smile on her face, she was dreaming about something pretty wonderful. ๐Ÿ™‚

her parents are SO good with her…and her puppy brother, loomis (keep scrolling, he’s at the bottom!) was so interested in what we were doing that we just HAD to include him in a few images!

thanks so much to her wonderful parents for allowing us to document this amazing time!



l. & r.

the twins & nora.

twins; hank & grace…and their big sister nora.

*(full disclosure…these babies are now almost 6 months old, we’ve been so behind on blogging!!)*

these tiny people were quite vocal when we were photographing them! but, man oh man, they’re CUTE!

nora also turned TWO, so we grabbed a few images of her while we were there!

looking forward to the next time we get to photograph these cuties!


l. & r.

the wallis family.

this family. we LOVE them!

we’ve had the AMAZING honor of photographing some pretty fun and special moments in their lives. this one is no different! we met up with these wonderful souls in the woods they were married in to photograph them in front of the tree they planted during their wedding ceremony. we love that they do this every year for their anniversary…such a wonderful tradition!

this year was extra special, since betsy is pregnant and due this winter! we can’t wait to meet the newest member of their family…we know that miss mirabelle is going to be such a lovely big sister!


l. & r.


betsy & tom welcomed their newest family member, a baby boy they name bennett, last week! stay tuned for images, we’re photographing him this weekend!! ๐Ÿ™‚

mirabelle, she’s such a good mix of both betsy & tom. ๐Ÿ™‚

love this one.

i mean, come on, can’t you just HEAR her laughing?!


congrats you guys! happy anniversary & happy new baby!

the jenkins family.

we met up with the jenkins family and had the BEST time! since seeing these guys last, they’ve added a new member to their family…baby will. ๐Ÿ™‚

the images of them on that turquoise wall are our favorites!

i’ve said it before, but being able to see families grow and laugh is really just awesome.

lots of love to you guys.


l. & r. (and homer)

p.s. also, homer says “hello” to wrigley.

p.s.s. wrigley is the jenkins’ dog, he and homer are good friends and both have metal plates and screws in one back leg each, thanks to torn CCL’s. big, active, goofy dogs are just the greatest. ๐Ÿ™‚
