As a parent, I find great joy in seeing my children succeed in their passions and talents. The McCoyville family knows that joy- their very talented son was accepted into Boston Ballet School. This meant they would be packing up their home in Oregon to make a new home on the other side of the country.
Before they left the West Coast, they visited family in California- where I got to take their photos.

I look forward to the next family visit on this coast!
I’ve fallen so behind on posting, I get to post Colbi and Laurel’s 2016 headshots, along with their 2017 updated ones. Its fun to see them grow. Such sweet girls!
I’m looking forward to more!
This beautiful family of four brought me to a lovely ranch studio for their portraits.
I was glad we got this photo in, soon enough they won’t fit together!
The lighting was nice, and they are so fun to spend time with.
I hope I have an update with them again soon… when they are a family of FIVE 🙂
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.
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!
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…
