Twins! | Rapid City Lifestyle Photographer

When I found out this amazing family was going to add twins to the mix, I was excited for them! You see, we did the same thing almost seven year ago and we’ve been on a wild ride since.  Granted, I only had a two year old when my twins were born.  They have a two and a four year old.  As you’ll see in the pics, Karyn is pretty much a super mom! I’ve enjoyed getting to know her and her family since we’ve arrived in Rapid City, so was excited to capture their life as a new family of 6!

We started by taking care of the babies and letting the older kids hang out a bit with me in the mix. As usual, Karyn was on top of things and big bro and sis were showing off their big sibling skills!

I came over to shoot a lifestyle session – one that shows a family in their home, doing the stuff they normally do, just being together.  However, the old posed newborn photographer in me came out a bit and we squeezed out these photos. G and A were a bit older than normal so not as sleepy but they cooperated.

Dad stopped home from work so we could nab some family photos on the bed.  My fav is the black and white of the whole family on the bed.  Black and white captures the moment with distracting elements taken away.

It’s hard work to get your photo taken!  Big bro and sis humored me for a long time – and then took a much deserved break!

And, of course, mama Karyn was mothering all of her kids the whole time.  What a lovely lady!

Baby Faces | Rapid City Baby Photographer

Just had to share the many faces of little E with you. He’s such a gerber baby. These were taken at 8 months old – so, a while ago but I couldn’t resist.

The C Family | Washington DC Newborn Photographer


Wow, it’s been a while since I have posted a blog!  Between the holiday rush and me wading through morning sickness (yep, you heard right, baby #4 is expected early July!), blogging got pushed by the wayside.  However, I have some lovely sessions stored up to share with you and I’m happy to start with this one.

One of the pastors at my church greeted his fourth child right before Christmas and I was fortunate enough to capture these newborn baby memories for them.  Newborns change so quickly that even photos taken within two weeks of birth are glaringly different than those a few weeks later.  This little guy was a super model and posed for us nicely.

This handsome man was born into a beautiful family!  Check out these portraits of his cherub siblings!

Some of my clients’ most cherished images are those of mom or dad holding their newborn.  Through these baby portraits, you can “hope” to remember the size of your infant (I have a terrible detail memory!) and the love you felt.

The U Family | Washington DC Family Photographer

Love me some gorgeous families!  This one booked me last minute because they didn’t know if they’d have their sweet daughter in her forever family at the time I’d be in Vegas.  I’m so glad they did (book me, that is).  They were a pleasure to work with and their kids are hilarious, not to mention cute.  Of course, gotta love a hot mom and dad! 🙂
