Last year I got to photograph Angela and Jim’s wedding and this year I got to photograph them with their newborn Beckett! We did a combination of newborn portraits and lifestyle shots in their home. So many sweet moments!
When I was contacted by Daulton of The Refined Host to photograph one of the small gatherings that would make up 2021’s Nichols Annual Auction, I knew it was going to be a stunning event! I am in love with balloon arches and was even more excited when I learned that Buffalo Balloon Co. would be putting one together for the party. The decor was a perfect mix of fun and school spirit colors with elegant and sophisticated touches. I have been finding photographing events and parties really enjoyable as I love party planning and decorations!
I had the pleasure of photographing Sophie and her lovely family in their bright and picturesque home a couple weeks after she came home from the hospital. We did a variety of shots from newborn portraits to family photos to intimate shots in her nursery. Love getting to capture the special moments and memories of those first few weeks with a newborn lifestyle session!
Halloween is my favorite holiday. No surprise there for people who know me. I felt inspired to put together a Halloween book list for toddlers. For each holiday, I take time to think about and plan how to make it special and fun for my 2-year-old daughter Odette. I aim to not do anything too time consuming as I don’t really have a lot of free time on my hands, but I aim to do strategic things that have the most impact. I put up decorations, I plan some activities leading up to the holiday and on the holiday, and for Halloween this year, I made a little spot on her bookshelf of all her Halloween books and got some new ones for it too. I plan to do this for every holiday from here on out! It was nice having the books right there to read each night and it got her excited for the holiday.
In an effort to blog more and share some personal content… here is my list of Halloween books for toddlers!
