l i l y {six months}

I think six months is my favorite age to photograph babies.  By this age, they are chubby and their little personality is shining through.  I can’t think of a more beautiful baby than Lily…um, maybe it’s a tie with her twin brother, Liam. :)

Dylan Minnette – Actor

The movie, Prisoners, was #1 at the box office last weekend!  Go see it!  Dylan is in it and he plays the son of Hugh Jackman!  I’m beyond proud and happy for him!

The Noble Family

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this precious family for years now.  They are so much fun and I look forward to each and every time I get to freeze moments for them.  Thankful for their friendship and sweet presence in my life.
