Baby Asa

Eleven years ago I was asked to help photograph Rachel and Travis's Wedding. Since they were such good friends I said yes. Earlier this year Rachel called and asked me to take her maternity pictures. Again I said yes. Then 2 weeks ago I was able to take photo's of Baby Asa, Rachel and Travis's first baby. It has been so much fun to participate in all these special events for some very good friends. 

Rachel and Travis, I appreciate our friendship very much. I think the two of you will make wonderful parents. And if Asa's photo session is any indication you will fill his life with love and laughter. Congratulations!

Playing Cards and a Bowler Hat

So the other night Dawson and Devin were bored. So what do pre-teen boys do when they're bored? They wrestle . . . . very loud! Lenny didn't want to listen to the noise any more . . . so he came up with a game. He put his bowler hat in the middle of the room and gave each of the boys a deck of cards. What happened next left my living room floor full of cards! They were tossing one card at a time to see how many they could get in the hat. I loved the explosion of colors  . . . so of course I had to take a photo. :)

A Baby on the Way

When Dawson was a baby I had the opportunity to shoot my first wedding. Some friends from college were getting married and they'd asked me and another girl from school to take their wedding photos. 11-12 years later Rachel and Travis are having their first baby! So when she contacted me to take maternity photo's I was excited to document this next phase in their lives. I've never shot maternity photo's, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. Rachel and Travis are wonderful subjects to work with. :)               This rocking chair belonged to Rachel's Mom. She used it when Rachel was a baby. :)

 I love this picture! It says so much about what kind of a couple Rachel and Travis are.
