family sessions

MAGGIE + JOHNNY // LIFESTYLE ENGAGEMENT


maggie + johnny invited me over for a cozy engagement session in their home with their cutiepie daughter, emilia [ who they also call emi ! ].  we ate jimmy john's at their kitchen table + talked mostly parent things as emi danced around with her sandwich.  i got a tour of the house including the 'peach room' + was introduced to the beloved 'blue kitty.'  after sandwiches, the lovebirds walked hand-in-hand with mason jars of beer + cider, showing me their favorite things about their home - the apple tree out front, the wooded trails in the backyard + the blueberry patch across the street with a huge weeping willow beside it.  getting to know these two in such a special space was truly a gift - and i can't wait to continue our friendship over the coming months before their wedding next year.

SULLIVAN // NEWBORN LIFESTYLE SESSION


the schueller family lived down the street from me - in my most favorite neighborhood on my most favorite street of all time.

lisa contacted me shortly after learning that she + her husband jason were pregnant with their first child together - wanting to get a newborn session on the books as soon as we could.  it seemed like a lifetime away at the time, but her cutie little bump grew + grew + august came quickly + soon enough, sweet baby sullivan joined his big sister madison making the schueller's a beautiful family of four.

their home was literal perfection for the session - immaculately decorated with adorable character and great natural light coming through the big front windows.   it was a cozy, laid-back, coffee-filled sunday morning [ my fave kinda sessions ] + we even got outside in their backyard for some photos in the sunshine.

sullivan is so obviously loved already by everyone - but it was easy to tell madison was his #1 fan + protector. i can't wait to watch these two grow up alongside each other + become best friends.

welcome to the 'neighborhood' sullivan.  we love you so !
