Jackson's First Birthday

I’ve been so fortunate to photograph Baby Jackson since he was a newborn, and now he is turning 1.  Jackson has always been a calm little cherub.  He gets to go to work with his mother Joy, and each day spend time around animals.  Joy works in the field of equine dentistry, so Jackson has become quite accustomed to being around large behemoths.  So when Balboa, our office mascot, decided to crash the indoor session, Jackson didn’t even flinch.  Instead, he moved towards Balboa and pet him nicely.

After capturing some images in the indoor studio, we ventured to Exploration Park where Jackson enjoyed playing on the slide, around the stagecoach, and even had his eye on another little girl.  For only being a year old, he certainly has a variety of expressions, and he didn’t hold back.  What a pleasure to watch this darling little heart thief grow up!  Happy Birthday Jackson!

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
