Fall Sessions!

I know it doesn’t feel like it outside, however, my favorite season is here…FALL! I’m looking forward to cooler weather, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, and of course wearing nice cozy sweatshirts! And one of my favorite things about fall? Getting to meet sweet new families while capturing special moments for them to cherish forever! I’m offering full and mini sessions this fall.

“Working with Amy is fun and easy. Before we met Amy I stressed about the kids’ moods, the time of day we’d shoot, etc. But with Amy I know there are going to be great shots no matter what – all we have to do is show up! She captures every child in his or her element and individual personalities shine through in every shot. I wouldn’t use anyone else.” -Maggie S.

Lincoln’s Newborn Photos

Two days after Lincoln’s birth we did his newborn photos! He did great-he slept through some of it and was awake for some of it.

 

This was the first time that Big Brother Noah held Lincoln…

This photo cracks me up! After we got the other photo, Lincoln started to fuss and Noah gave me this “what do I do now?” look!

Noah turned two a month before Lincoln was born so we were trying to come up with some fun ideas for the two of them. I think we succeeded! I love this photo of the boys! *please note we had two spotters for all photos of both boys together. Do not try this without the help of a professional*

It is so hard to choose a favorite! Noah was so sweet with his baby brother.

Both Stephen and Amy have spent quite of a bit of time in Brasil. When I saw these signs I just had to find a way to include them!

Can you tell by the smile on his face how excited he is? If Hudson was at the hospital he was by his little brother’s side.
