I met the Molony Family at Evolve Aikido, where their son was training with my kids. It was easy to become fond of them, and enjoyed hearing updates on the journey they were on. Their boy, Aidan, was placed in their home- and they began the exhausting but worthwhile process to adopt him. When they were (finally!) given their adoption date, they asked if I would photograph this life changing event.
What an honor to attend and photograph such a special moment. Congratulations, Molony family! What wonderful people this beautiful boy made parents.
It’s always fun to see two people come together and celebrate their love and commitment to one another. Lonnie is a strong, beautiful, smart, woman. I’ve known her since she was a girl, and it was sweet to see her marry a dedicated, kind man- who shares her love of baseball
Cora is a girl on the move. Most of our photos are on the go!
Every once in a while she has a still moment, and I get to freeze it in time.
The Mays kids were excited to see their grandma and great-grandma, who were visiting California from the mid-west.
Grandma was pleased to meet her newest grand baby for the first time.
I have enjoyed watching these wonderful people grow through the years.
Beautiful people to photograph, beautiful people to know
September 7, 2015 was a great day! Maybe not for my sister’s comfort, but for the new love we all experienced when welcoming my newest nephew, Decker, into the world! Here are a few shots from our several photo sessions over the past nine months…
9 Days Old:
1 Month Old:
What a sweet boy!
Baby Ayvah came a month early. She was tiny (4 pounds, 2 oz.), and absolutely beautiful. I got to visit her in the hospital when she was only 4 days old. Everyone is in love!
Cora wasn’t super thrilled about our photo shoot, so we just played at the park…
…with my camera.
Looking forward to our next play date!
My baby sister is a mom!
I am nine years older than her, so I have been waiting a while for this.
They are both looking forward to meeting their son.
And so am I!
Well, I’m always slow to update, so he’s actually almost one and a half!
It was fun chasing him around. I’m sure he’s gotten a better handle on those legs since I last saw him…
I last got to photograph the Gothold family when they were announcing their ‘plus one’. Well, here he is!
Dad is a “Star Wars” fan and talented musician, so we couldn’t resist…
Mom is a librarian…
Tobias (Toby) is pure baby goodness!
