I’m going through all the photos I took this year. It’s not a ton because I spent almost the entire year either being pregnant (and nauseous, exhausted, and hospitalized for hypertension) or having a brand new baby (in and out of NICU).

I really love my sessions with the Chamberlains – every one of them. They’ve become a great way to see how much the kids have grown. Big brother Ryan is now 9 (10 is going to be here quicker than we think). And little Alison is 1.5 – a challenging age for many photographers. Though […]

I think it would be difficult for me to express how much fun I had at the Ongleys’ extended family session, but I’ll try. Pam (whose Grandma name is “Lolly”, how cute is that!?) is one of my mom’s close friends. She has a son and a daughter (Ryan and Erinn), and five grandchildren between […]
