“It would be so easy to forget to love this life; to just go through the motions, doing what needs to be done, as if it’s all going to last forever. And I remind myself: the life that we have right here, right now, is the BEST life there is.”

New life. It’s just amazing, it’s it? Those tiny little toes, minuscule fingernails, poochy lips and big, bright eyes. Taking everything in as brand new information. Screams and coos and giggles and smiles… you could just sit and stare at him for hours. Mom and Dad have a love for elephants… this one was in…

The baby is coming, the baby is coming!! At least that’s what I imagine Dexter is yelling as he runs across the field. 😉 In just a few short weeks, Katie & Brandon will be parents, and he will be a big furry brother! I got to hang out with the three of them on…

Sara Kinley {In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography}

Sara was born just a week after we did maternity photos with her parents, Matt & Tammy. I got to meet her just a short two weeks later, and I have to tell you, there is only one other baby I’ve ever met who was as easy and happy as Sara. I love her to…

Baby girl will be here any day, and I was honored to photograph the last memories of beautiful Tammy’s pregnancy. We went to Whatcom Falls, which was one of her favorite places while living in Bellingham, and she was a trooper hiking all over the place! I can’t wait to meet their new little one…

Ari Anthony {In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography}

My dear friends have added a second love to their family: baby Ari. I had the immense privilege of documenting this beautiful little boy; who, by the way, is the EASIEST baby I have ever laid eyes on. Seriously, he’ll sleep through anything.

Lindsay and I are due date buddies; we’re on a race to see who will come first, her daughter or our son! 😀 For now, though, I got to hang out with them on their farm and capture this short time in their family’s life as they await the arrival of the newest addition. Lincoln…

Little Rambos {Bellingham Newborn Photography}

It’s been FOREVER since I’ve posted anything, so it’s about time I got my act together!! I was SOO excited to photograph this new little family when their tiny bundles arrived in late December; Micah & Kristi are adorable new parents and the cuteness of their tiny twins is completely unbearable. Just look at them!!
