This beautiful family reached out to me after Walker was born, hoping to capture some moments of him in his first weeks of life. His mom’s question to me: Could we possibly plan an outdoor newborn session? Of course!

We met in the woods, where sweet Walker could be shaded by the trees and out in the fresh air. The sea of soft green ferns made such a beautiful backdrop, and baby Walker was so attentive that we were finished in no time. It was such a wonderful afternoon, and I just love the images that we captured together.

It’s that time of year. The air is getting crisp, the days are getting short, and the weeks are flying by faster than ever.

I never really had an interest in hosting mini sessions until my daughter was born. And now, after just about six months, it seems like she’s been with us for a lifetime, and she’s changed so much already that I can’t quite imagine her in another half year. Our family looks so different now than it did this past spring, and all the little changes have me believing wholeheartedly that a quick family portrait can be so important in such a fast-paced season of life.

And so, I am announcing this year’s autumn mini sessions.
