March 28, 2015 Karen’s Headshots

I met Karen last Fall when we were both speaking at a conference. We clicked right away as we had both spent time in Kibera slums, Kenya and had a heart for social justice issues and travel. Karen is one of the 100 finalists for the MarsOne Mission. You can read one of Karen’s interviews about going to Mars HERE. Karen is a lot of fun – and wanted some fun photos as well as more serious ones for her headshots. I brought my girls along as they love Space and science – and they enjoyed interviewing Karen about space, and about her years as a journalist – some of her fun expressions are from interacting with the girls while I snapped away. A fun morning!

March 19, 2015 Baby Avery

I’ve known Deb & Oliver for a number of years – and loved documenting their rain filled engagement session and amazing outdoor wedding celebration (complete with swing dance lessons!) over the years. So when I got the call that they were now parents and wanted to document their new son Avery – I was so excited! I knew these two would be naturals as parents – as well as a lot of fun! It was fun to catch up with them and their dog Theo in their home and document this new family addition. When I photograph a newborn – I want it to be natural. I typically did not put my babies in big hats and baskets as a new mom – so this isn’t how I want to remember those days. I did though spend hours rocking them, singing to them, admiring their little fingers and counting their toes. Spending days just in awe of this miracle in my care. These are the moments I love to capture – as these are the moments I want to remember as a mom, and want to share with parents as a photographer.
