Katelynne Joy Bell

Katelynn Joy Bell was born last week, a tiny little thing weighing in at 4lbs 14 ozs! She is happy and healthy though, just tiny :) She is the first born to Kristen & Nick, you might even remember their maternity shoot last month. This is definitely the fun part, being there for major chapters in peoples lives and being allowed to capture those moments for them! I LOVE getting to go to the hospital for a shoot within the first 24 hours (Yes prego friends, I am available for this service, just email me,

SO here are a few favs, welcome to the world Katelynne Joy!

Yay for great neighbors!

These pics are from a shoot last week on a gorgeous afternoon with friends. Stephanie and George are actually our neighbors and it's great to also count them as friends. It's funny how small of a world we live in, George and I were actually neighbors as kids, our parents still live in the same neighborhood. And as fate would have it, we are once again neighbors :) I had a lot of fun with these two and their little Bischon, Belle. Belle is certainly the princess and she doesn't want you to forget it! So here's to Stephanie and George as they celebrate one year together with these pics!

Friday was cold...

So all of you who live in Delaware know what I am talking about. It was seriously 90 degrees last week..until Friday that is. Of course I had a photo shoot planned for the frigidness! Anyhow, we made the most of it, hiding behind the barn and trying to stay out of the wind. Thank goodness these are my good friends and we had a warm fire to run inside and warm up to when it was all over. Luke is just precious, already 6 months old and such a little stud. Here are just a few of the pics I found myself smiling at my computer over. Hopefully you too will see why I like them!

Thankfully the weather has warmed back up a little... more shoots scheduled for later this week!

Graduation! It's that time of year

SO it's the time of year that seniors in high school and college are thinking of the future! Graduation is right around the corner and they will be pushed out into the big scary world...ok that sounds dramatic. Well this past week I had a lot of fun photographing my "baby" cousin, Anastasia, who just so happens to be beautiful & lots of fun. This shoot had me reminiscing, thinking of the day she was born. It was literally the day after I turned 6, I still remember getting snuck in to the hospital by my uncle to see her for the first time. Ok now I really feel mushy, but time does pass quickly! I was so thankful to be asked to capture these memories for our family. We were also instructed by my aunt that although the cap & gown did not have to go on - they needed to be a meaningful part of the imagery. SO readers, tell me how you think we did with capturing the senior spirit without the cheese of the fake rose & goofy head tilt! (Leave me some comment love on this one :)

Our Family Portraits

Just wanted to share with you that we had our family portraits taken this past weekend by a photographer that I have loved and followed for a while, Rae Barnes. We met at the Tyler Arboretum and it certainly helped that it was a beautiful day with everything in bloom. We had so much fun at the shoot! Check out the sneak peek at her blog.

Happy Easter!

I had fun the other day taking some shots of the kids with a few Easter props, I figured why not - it's their first Easter! They also met the bunny at the mall while we were there on some errands & they loved it by the expressions on their faces!
I know that Easter is so much more about the risen Christ and the fact that he came to give us life. We did read the Easter story throughout the week with the children's Bible. They reached for the pages and looked at the pictures although the concepts are beyond them at this point. We pray though that Easter will come to mean something very special to them as well someday! Enjoy :)
