fall minis!



1. an overwhelming feeling that comes over you when you see something cute

fall minis!


There’s so much to catch up on! It’s been a very memorable summer with lots of travel – Audrey and I roadtripped to Utah for a couple camps of hers and next we’re going to both her and Jason’s dream locations (Paris for Audrey, Switzerland for Jason). Yay for family adventures!!

I’m really excited about this fall – and because it always books so early, just a heads up with a link ;) I’m closing up shoots (except for newborns and indoor sessions at home) on Nov 1 so we have time to work on holiday orders and have the most wonderful Advent season! Last year, I was so sweetly surprised by clients giving sessions as gifts – if that makes you think of someone, jot us a note and we’ll get a pretty boxed gift certificate to you! Easy peasy and SO thoughtful!

Thank you for allowing me to do work I love!


with so much affection,
