The first day of spring this year is Wednesday, March 20 and there is no better way to celebrate the magic of spring, other than to surround yourself in a sea of flowers. We have been photographing children in the flowers every spring since 1994 and each and every child seems to come alive with happiness during these very cute portrait sessions. Since there is such a short window of opportunity to capture photos of this new beginning that spring offers to us, our children portrait sessions have become quite popular. If you want this moment captured of your children, contact us while the flowers are alive and in bloom.Read More

Brand new Aria was such an angel during her newborn photography shoot. She only had to be fed twice during this special photo session. Aria stayed calm, happy and asleep most of the session. Both of her parents were on the sidelines with blankets, family heirloom props, little outfits and fresh flowers.
Stephanie and I first met Aria's mom Lauren a few months ago, as she needed headshots for a collages alumni magazine. We were so excited to find out that she wanted us to photograph her soon to be newborn.
