Family photograph for 6 month old milestone


I really enjoy working with a family more than once in that ‘first year’. Babies grow and change so, so much in the shortest amount of time!

I’m 3/4 of the way through covering those magical 12+ months for this amazing family. (Their love story started here if you’ve got time to drool over a gorgeous Leeann Marie wedding!) I took over, documenting their most recent adventures… the arrival of the bump, followed shortly after by an in home newborn session. Our most recent time together landed on a perfect Fall day, to document that 6 month milestone (and get some Christmas card images checked off a mamas to-do list)!

They make is look effortless. Throw these three just about anywhere and they shine. But, man, do they look like they belong outside Phipps or what?!

Spring 2020 – a whole year will be covered!! I can’t wait!!

You’re busier than you ever thought you’d be. Between chasing toddlers around, work commitments, mastering the art of diaper changes, herding kids to practice, and trying to get some me time, it’s hard to imagine adding anything to your plate.

I'm here to simplify the photography process for you so you can keep focusing on what you need to.
