Babies

Rori

When my niece’s daughter was born at the end of June and a photo was texted, I responded like most people by exclaiming, “That hair!”  I was thrilled to have the chance to capture this beauty when I was home-home in Pennsylvania in July.  I love her and her siblings and it was delightful to capture them in these pictures.  I’m sure they were cherish the memory of Rori being this little, as well as her big brother’s camo cast from a recent tumble.  🙂

Enjoy these beauties and that hair!

Now There Are Four!

It was so much fun to return to the Franklin home and photograph them with their newest baby!  It’s been a delight to see them grow through the years!  Enjoy the latest photos of this beautiful family!

Elise is Here!

A couple years ago, I loved documenting my friends’ newborn daughter, Evelyn.  This past December, I was able to photograph this family again, now with their newest daughter.  It’s a joy to help my friends capture memories of their families with photos like these. 🙂

The Beringer Boys

I really enjoy photographing my friends’ families.  It’s crazy to think about all that has changed since I visited these friends while they lived in Cambodia.  It was really wonderful capturing the joy of their newest addition.  Enjoy the cuteness of these brothers!

The Fritts Six

Hello there!  I’ve loved getting back into family photography this fall and had a great time documenting this growing family, some of my most loyal clients!  This sweet family welcomed their fourth child recently and I loved capturing his cuteness in these photos!

The Mansell Kids

This past summer, I had the joy (and fun challenge) of photographing my brother and sister-in-law’s children, some of my favorite kids in the world.  Being that photos by Aunt Jenni aren’t a novelty to them, the group pics were an amusing challenge (see the last photo for evidence of this).  As usual, it wasn’t difficult to get their beauty to shine through in the individual photos.  🙂  I love that they have made frequent appearances on this blog.  It’s a joy to watch them grow!

The Franklin Family Has Grown!

Hey there, friends!

I’m alive!!  I thought it was time for me to take a break from educating the future of America (and traveling all summer) to update this blog and let you know that I’m still around and taking photos.  🙂

Though greatly delayed (I promise I’m more prompt when it comes to photo shoots with clients), here are highlights from my time with the Franklin family this year.  They’ve grown a bit since our last session together!

The Rest of 2016’s Photo Sessions

Hello, my friends!

I’m getting my photography act together and wanted to get my blog up-to-date so I can share more recent sessions next.  Here is proof that I did something other than travel photography in 2016.  🙂  I hope you enjoy these lovely families that I photographed this past fall!

A Look Back at 2016

There’s nothing like an icy day trapped at home to give me the time I’ve needed all year to catch up this blog!

With apologies for the slightly haphazard style of all of this, here is my attempt to catch up the blog so I can be more up-to-date on posting recent photo sessions, as well as recent travel (which is soon!).

I hope you enjoy the recap.  I hope to be back with more soon.

Merry Christmas to all!

Welcome, Little Samantha!

I’ve been photographing this family since their oldest daughter was six months old.  Now there are three of them!  It’s been a joy to watch them grow.  Here are newborn photos of their newest addition, Samantha.  I hope you enjoy the sweetness of these little ones and a few with their beautiful mama, too!  🙂
