As winter approaches I would love to book more newborn sessions. Now that we have a great big farm house, I have the perfect set up for newborn sessions. Know someone expecting?! I’d love if you would refer me! ­čÖé

Nothing says ‘end of summer’ like an apple orchard, overalls, goldenrod, and sunshine. It’s a beautiful end to the summer. I’m glad for another season though, and I’m welcoming fall, maybe even embracing it.

This little fellow has to be one of the happiest babies I’ve ever met. And those blue eyes…oh my!

Summer sure is winding down. We are gearing up for one busy weekend, but wanted to leave you with this happy face…


Lucy was sooo sweet! And such a good girl for her session! She didn’t mind trying on all the bonnets, most of which I made and will be for sale this summer. She showed me her smile, her grumpy face, and her sleepy face. It was so nice to meet you Lucy!

This little lady has to be one of the most adorable babies ever! I made a little dress for her 9 month session, out of a vintage sheet and vintage table runner. She looked like a little doll with her vintage bonnet and flutter sleeves. While she felt a little out of place in the grassy Norwayne Field, with the help of some cheerleaders, we made the best of her absolute cuteness and lovely sunset lighting.
