This mama and I are connected at the heart level. We could spend hours on the phone pouring our hearts out. We have. Many times. It’s always such an honor to photograph her growing family knowing that she herself was a 100% film photographer before she has her gorgeous children. The fact that she would chose me blows me away and feels like a HUGE compliment. We shot a mixture of film and digital and captured some the pure preciousness of her kids really well. I loved our session so much. x

What a gift to see this boy again as he’s just 3.5 months away from hitting ONE year. I love how he’s grown into such a happy, beautiful boy. They came all the way down from Oakland for our session and I just loved our time together. Esme is such a natural mom. So in love with her baby boy. It was a joy to witness them as a family, and see Beckett getting ready to move… rolling over, putting weight into his legs, trying to communicate. It goes so fast. If only I could hold my babies again at that stage, even just for a minute. A good reminder to be right here right now. And to get photos that freeze them in time.
that’s all I really have to say about this baby and this session. I am so happy to know this family. They make pretty little princesses, and it’s such a privilege to me to photograph them. Baby Kate was an angel through her whole shoot and I had tons of fun with Emma and her BIG personality. So.much.fun. It could have been as much her session as her new baby sister’s. She was my focus so much of the time because 1. she’s adorable and 2. she needs that attention right now. It made her feel special to have a flower crown and be important and a focus for me. She was so good with the jealousy that came up for her when it was time to focus on baby sis. And we captured some precious moments between the two of them together. My favorite was when she kissed her toes. melt. Thank you for inviting me into your home and for a really nice session Van B’s.
ps. How gorgeous is mama’s hair?! Lucky girls to get that gene.

I’ve been dying to get this family in front of my camera since their third baby was born! Oh, baby Reece is such a sweetheart, and a beautiful addition to their family. I’m so glad she’s here now and she let us doll her up with a special flower crown made by the talented, Brendy Frampton. We had lots of laughs together over the course of the session, because as usual, nothing is ever perfect, and sometimes the kids are done before we start. I totally get that. Such troopers, those handsome boys. And I know they won’t regret it, or hold mom accountable once they see how absolutely adorable they were! I can barely stand it. This family could be in a magazine. Their shoot was so light and airy, just like summer feels right now. I loved it! Thank you Moseley’s for asking me to photograph you! xo
