Mr. Avery was 6 months when I had the pleasure to meet him.  His Dad and I were teammates in 2012 for the St. Anthony's Triathlon, where I was able to meet his Mommy.  Two years later I was so honored to be able to capture this beautiful family.  Enjoy!

I have a soft spot for families who allow me to document their children through the years.  Miss Amara and I are now on our fourth session and she is a pro model in training!!It was great to see her {and her family} and amazed how much she has grown in just a few months! I remember when she could barely walk and now she is running and we can have a full conversation! We had a great time at the park playing Peek-a-Boo and discovering the world around us! Enjoy this precious little girl, I sure did!

Introducing Miss Jewel.  This post is a long time coming, but not forgotten.  I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful new family with their beautiful baby girl back in March.  Miss Jewel was a perfect angel while we played dress up with her {Mommy & Daddy were pretty amazing themselves}.  Below are a few of my favorite Black & White images from her session. Enjoy!

What a gift!Please pass along our thanks to all of the photographers and ...
