Sometimes in life we are lucky enough to do what we love. Sometimes doing what we love includes spending time with our dearest friends during their most precious life moments. I met Danielle in college, and we have remained close despite living a few hours apart. She has been there for me through all of my own life's events. Seeing her get married and become a mom have brought me such joy as her friend, and such honor to have been able to capture these special moments! And Joseph is just a perfect match to Danielle. I am so happy for them both to have found each other!
Here are Danielle and Joseph on their wedding day.
And here are a couple pictures of "big brother" Willy along with Danielle and Joe from their maternity session.
Look at his adorable nursery!
Is this mobile not the most adorable thing you have ever seen?!
Congratulations Danielle and Joseph!
Every year for the past 5 years I have been able to capture a special photo shoot to celebrate my sweet little friend Katey's birthday! It has been such a treat to not only watch her grow into this beautiful little girl; but also collaborating with her parents to create these fantastic themes is so much fun!!
Just look at how this sweet girl has grown through the years.
My amazing mother in law made this superhero costume just for sweet Katey!
Is she not adorable? This year, we decided on a more classic theme. The five star treatment for a sweet five year old. Have I mentioned how amazing her parents are at getting the props just right?
Recently, I captured photographs of sweet Cora in her home with her loving family. A few years ago, I was able to photograph her big sister as a newborn as well; so it was really special to visit her family again. It was so clear how much this sweet girl is loved! And check out her amazing nursery! All of my favorite colors in one amazing room!

With just two days left before Christmas, I am finally sitting down long enough to share some of the photos I have taken recently. I have been so busy with the kids' school programs and activities, and now they are home for winter break! I have been sitting here thinking about all that has happened in 2015, and while it has been a harder year than most for our family, we have truly been blessed beyond measure. I am so exited to start 2016 and see where life brings us. This year, I had the great joy of shooting some minis at Santa's Christmas Tree Farm. It was so much fun! I would love to make this an annual tradition. I also included a couple other sessions I shot as well. I hope you enjoy this very picture heavy post!
My beloved Michel Family!!
Last year, I had the great honor of capturing the wedding of Danielle and Joe. I met Danielle in college and we have been friends ever since. Joseph is her perfect match and I am so overjoyed for them!
Recently I had an opportunity to visit them again, this time to capture another important time in their lives. Their maternity session! Nothing is more rewarding than watching a family grow from the very beginning. I cannot wait to see their sweet baby boy in just a few more weeks!
