The Life cycle of photography, building relationships.

It has been a very busy few months growing the children & babies area of my photography business. I have truly enjoyed every smile, giggle, temper tantrum and tear from each of my littlest clients. I began my photography business focusing primarily on weddings and portraits in the early 2000.  Since that time I have photographed hundreds of weddings and have had the privilege of watching those brides and grooms become moms and dads. What an incredible honor to be included in the documenting of those family milestones. It humbles me on so many levels.  Selecting the images for this blog made me reflect upon the many years I have been working with this one particular family.  I got to relive the wedding, pregnancies, births and growth of this  family whom has become very special to me over the years.  I remember the first time this particular bride asked me to do maternity and newborn pictures for her firstborn son.  I hadn’t had a lot of exposure with this type of photography in the past.  I made that clear to my client that it would be a new venture for me but I told her I would be more than happy to give it a try. She showed up with pictures, ideas, props and lots of patience. Today this bride has three beautiful children, a loving husband and father and a family photographer who has had the pleasure of photographing them at all their precious moments. Enjoy the images I have selected.  They bring so many happy memories for me not only as their photographer but now as a family friend as well.

It all started with a simple, “I DO”


And then a special arrival of Baby number one in July of 2009.  They had a beautiful baby boy who lit up their world.


In 2011 what a surprise!  One became three with the arrival of twins.  A precious baby girl and another beautiful boy to add to their loving family.

  1. Your Blogs have evolved into a storyline in which they are like a great novel that you don’t want to put down. I’m enjoying you sharing your part of you life in which you affect other lives for the better through your words and photos. Carry on Karen, tell us more with future Blogs.
