9 month old Lucy

9 month old Lucy

Lucy’s mom contacted me for her daughters 9 month photos.  I was excited to meet Lucy and do her bohemian style set up per mom’s request.  Lucy has such big bright blue eyes and crazy long eye lashes.  Mom wanted big floral crowns and poor Lucy, she just didn’t care too much for them.  She acted like they weighed a …

Slabinski Newborn Boy

Parents with newborn studio portrait photography

When Julie contacted me about a newborn session for her son it was driving me nuts about her name.  As soon as she walked in to the studio, I knew why.  Julie and I used to work together over 10 years ago.  It was fun to catch up while shooting her latest addition to her family.  Owen joins his older …
