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!

If you are interested in a family lifestyle session, please contact me at 605-388-2728 or  I serve the entire Black Hills region, centered around Rapid City.  I would love to help document a day in the life of your family, no matter the age of your kids.

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! 🙂

The Many Faces of Jessica | Bethesda, MD Baby Photographer

I was recently inspired by another photographer to start a new type of session called “Faces.”

A “Faces” session is a great way to capture your child’s personality at a moment in time.  We all love the natural smiles of our children but don’t you love their other expressions too?  I know I do!  How lovely is it to see a picture of your child and think, “that’s SO him!”

And thus began, Faces.

Your Faces session is a 30 minute mini session for one child either at my home studio in Bethesda, at a park or at your home (if you have more than one child/session) – and you don’t have to think about what she is going to wear because I will be taking pictures of her face!  Perfect for cold winter days or to capture a quick moment with each child.  The Faces package includes the session, a 16×16 ready-to-hang Thin Wrap* 9 opening collage and 15% off any other purchases for $225.

* A thin wrap is  ready-to-hang photo art, printed on photo lustre paper with a protective coating, professionally wrapped around 1/4″ gatorboard and finished with a mount that floats it off the wall. Bethesda, MD child photographer

Project 52: Complementary Colors | Bethesda, MD headshot photographer

A while ago I joined a group of professional photographers from around the world for a year-long project to expand our vision of photography.  Each week has a theme to interpret (and I admit, I’m not very good at keeping up with this).  This week’s theme is Complementary Colors.

Last week I had the extreme pleasure of photographing this lovely lady.  Sonia was beautiful from the start and we enjoyed my little hidden gem in Kensington again (check here for a maternity session in the same area).  Stayed tuned for more gorgeous photos next week as this is just a teaser sneak peek.
