The reason I do what I do...

I started really enjoying photography after my daughter was born. It was always a hobby, and through the years I started to do more with it. But when I really sit and think about it, my favorite style of photography has to be the child portraiture. I just love kids and their simple innocence. There's no drama, no problems, no stress. I love to just follow them around and let them be...themselves!
Prime example...Here is my niece, Keira. I do her portraits every year when we go to the beach. My nickname for her is "Miss Thing" because she is such a pip! She talks with so much character and her true self shows in these pictures. She was having a blast and cracking my sister, my father and I up the whole time we were walking around.
I've re sized a few of my favorites to send to my sister on email, but thought I'd upload them to share here too. (They may be a little grainy due to the size, but you get the idea of what I'm talking about).
Pure innocent fun!
Oh to be a kid again!


  1. Cutest toes ever!!! And I see what you mean about her personality. Kids are the most fun to photograph.

  2. What a doll! I sure wish I had a way with a camera - would make photographing my jewelry sooooo much easier!
