You know those people who are put in your life for a reason? The ones who keep you grounded and can talk you through anything… the ones who get you through that first nursing clinical… the person who will come with you to your kid’s art class on their day off… the friend that your kids call Auntie…
Well now I can officially call that person family.
The world works in mysterious ways & I can’t wait to meet the newest member of the family! #babyfletcher
Here are a few more photos from my session with these two beautiful souls!
Today this little lady crawled over, grabbed her swim suit from the drying rack, stood up and walked away…

Last month baby Sullivan made an early arrival into this world and I got to take in all of his newborn goodness. At just a few hours old, he was showered with love and adoration by his beautiful parents and I got to snap a few photos of his perfect little features.
Every so often I offer Fresh 48 sessions to my clients because they are just good for my soul. It is amazing to see new parents navigate their emerging roles, meet the tiniest babes & address that forever baby fever.
Sullivan, I cannot wait for our in home lifestyle newborn session. Even though I don’t know how it’s possible… I’m pretty sure you’re getting cuter by the day!
Ps check out their maternity session here!
In February I decided to celebrate motherhood by giving away a ‘mama & me’ session over on instagram! Beautiful Ali won and we took some gorgeous spring photos of her and her adorable daughter Rowyn. I was told Rowyn could sometimes be a bit shy and might take take some time to warm up… Needless to say, the photos turned out better than I could have imagined and I definitely plan on making this special giveaway an annual occurrence!
Here are a few more,
A few weeks ago, I met this gorgeous couple for their maternity shoot and it was such a pleasure having them in front of my lens. Not only are they beautiful people inside and out, but I genuinely enjoyed the fact that it was just the two of them! Don’t get me wrong, I obviously LOVE photographing families and children – especially my own. However, the task certainly comes with a few obstacles. This session was like a breath of fresh air that I didn’t know I needed. I was just able to revel in the space created to celebrate these two before they become parents and welcome a beautiful baby into their family.
I am so humbled to have been asked to capture this special time in their lives!
Today is this pup’s fifth birthday
We give him to much flak for slobbering all over our house, farting, scaring himself & running away, and his excessive snoring. But we couldn’t have asked for a better pup for our family. The girls absolutely adore him and well… he tolerates the bear hugs, ear pulls & the occasional finger in the nose.
Happy Birthday to our first babe
