lifestyle sessions


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 !


lauren + nick [ and jaina + stella ] are neighbor friends of mine, who i have had the priviledge of photographing two other times over the last two years.  it has been such a joy to watch their family grow + flourish + being able to document it all unfolding.

i hold these people in high regard because they have single-handedly brought me more referrals than anyone i know - and have done so with no agenda - just out of the goodness of their hearts.  i have been able to connect with many other families + even some couples getting married through these two people vouching for me time + again.  their confidence + trust make me feel ten feet high.

i hope over time i can convey the amount of love + gratitude i have for this family - and to all who have stuck by side the last few years.

p.s. i have never done a whole set in black + white but something in these photos just seemed to have that vibe so i rolled with it.  i assured her i would deliver color images in the end, but for now, i am loving this set.
