The Strickland Family

The end of one chapter, and the beginning of another. The Strickland family wanted to remember this magical house they had called home, before they embarked on to the next house and the next set of memories. Truly my favorite kind of family shoot. This is the Strickland Family, and this is their real life.

The Dehne Family

It's not often that I shoot maternity photos (read: never). But there was something about the way Jamie described my work when she emailed me, and what she thought this session could be that brought me completely on board. Maybe becoming a dad myself has made me a big softy, but being a part of these sessions was just so dang special. To be able to watch two parts of this new adventure unfold in front of my camera was such an amazing honor. 

First, the maternity session at Jamie's grandparents home that she spent most of her childhood years at on Grosse Ile. And second, Nora joins the world and makes Jamie and Kyle parents for the first time. Photographed in their home in Plymouth in the few days following her birth. There's no other way I'd want it.
