    A letter from the editor

    When asked what I would save if my house was on fire, my 8-year old self always replied, My pictures. Here we are, a *couple* of decades later, and no doubt Id say the same thing. Im pretty sure you would too (of course, after your family members were accounted for, the dog was saved, and gold fish were safe).

    AfterAfter 11 years as a full time people photographer, I am still inspired by our amazing clients. The fact that theyve chosen us to capture their lives and love, well, its an honor. And one of my favorite and most fulfilling things has been to watch them change and grow over the years, from the proposal, to the wedding, and finally welcoming their first little miracle.miracle.

    Thank you for stopping in, taking the time to see our images, read our stories, and learn about all of the options when it comes to documenting such a wonderful time in your lives!


  • You like the way his eyes get all squinty when he chuckles all cute-like. or the way her belly curves because its holding your looove child. Or the way his slobber is out of control when a treat is coming (Im talking about the dog, come on...). so do we.

    We are a boutique photography company. we dont have millions and trillions of clients, we answer the phone at all odd hours, email entirely too much, and i-heart-text-messages. We strive to keep relationships personal, ideas fresh, and products timeless.

    TThings are seen with a teeny bit of a fashion flare: weve got a passion for creating rockin portraits, all the while capturing moments as they happen.

    But mostly, we ARE photography for really fun people.

    For lifes big events, or just because.

    Lifestyle photography is what fills the editorial pages of todays magazines. But what is it, really?

    Its a hybrid of editorial photography and its more traditional cousin, portraiture. Its bright, airy, and full of real people in real locations doing real, everyday things.

    Its casual and often fun. It showcases your personalities, while creating some fun captures for wall portraits, albums, or announcement cards.

    Belly. Newborn. Family. Pets. Engagement. An anniversary session.

    what exactly ARE lifestyle portraits?
