welcome to the blog

We vow to create the very best imagery we can- every single time. We take what we do as seriously as if it were our own wedding day, family or newborn photos.

Maple part 3: The smashing of the cake.

Ok, so this is where the obscene amount of Maple photos ends. If you know her, she is a go-getter, fast and usually gone in a flash if you set her down on the ground. Some have called her the energizer bunny. She takes 1 second to go from a deep sleep to fully awake […]

Maple part 1

This series of posts has been in waiting for the last year. Looking back now, I can see that this whole year was a giant fog of exhaustion and the thought of trying to put it all into words was just too much, so I’ll do it the best way I know how: through snapshots […]

All signs pointed to May 7th being the best evening for their session, and we decided that our house would provide some great views and light. Nik is shooting […]

One little phone call…

It was a regular day. The weather had turned and it was quite cold, although my kids could care less what the ol’ weatherman says and were still reliving the good times of summer in their shorts and t-shirts. I had to run an errand. It was a simple, 5-minute task so I didn’t make […]

Joy in the wait….

These last three weeks have been particularly hard. I had convinced myself that this was our time, it was our turn….that there was a baby waiting for us on the other side of the Atlantic. I even looked up flights in anticipation of getting THE call. You know, most of our friends know that we […]

The waiting game….

We are often asked two questions when people hear that we are adopting. First is always, “why?” and the second is usually, “Aren’t you busy enough already?”. I love the first question because it gives me an opportunity to chat about how adoption has touched my life and also it reminds me to hold fast […]
