When I was a little girl my grandmother used to call me Precious Pearl. The name came to be because there was  a doll called Poor Pitiful Pearl. I’ve been told that I used to mostly walk around with a grumpy look on my face. I don’t doubt it. Many of the photos I’ve seen of me show that little scrunched up face underneath my oh-so stylish bowl cut, and my arms crossed across my chest with a “don’t mess with me” look. She loved me no matter my grumpy face or not so the “Poor Pitiful” part was dropped for “Precious”.  She passed away when I was in college back in 1996.  I can still remember her voice.  There are smells that can bring me right back to her kitchen in Tequesta, Florida.  One of my favorite pictures of her is one I took in high school, sitting at my kitchen table in Vermont, looking at me lovingly, no doubt in my mind saying “Precious Pearl” to herself. 

Meet Violet.

I did a shoot with her big brother four years ago.  I loved it so much then and still do to this day.  Unlike the last shoot he wanted ZERO to do with this session.  There were a lot of tears but he did finally come around at the end.  And I got a smile from him, even though he tried his best to *never* give in!  This gave me lots of time to focus on Violet and the interaction between her and her mother.  There is something so pure and raw about a mother’s love for her children.  Motherhood photography is something that I hold near and dear to my heart.  I feel fulfilled when I am lucky enough to be witness to these moments.  Mom wanted to incorporate some of her own pearls for this shoot and I love the feminine, opalescent strands draping over her beautiful baby skin.

I would LOVE to capture these precious moments with you and your little ones!  If you are interested in setting up a mommy and me session or incorporating all your loved ones for a family portraits I would love to speak with you!

    Louise Bagger - Thank you for sharing those precious motherly photography, there was a charm in those smiles and innocent looks. It really brings back mine memory when i did have those innocent smiles and looks that forced others elders to play with me. It was a beautiful moments.

Well…this is embarrassing.

I try.  I really do.  But somehow the art of consistent blogging has just gotten away from me.  Oh I remember the good ol’ days when I was blogging 3 or more times a week.  Looking back, I can see I’m averaging once a month at best.  So, so sad. 
So, I want to start where I need to which is back at the beginning of twenty-sixteen (hiding face in shame).  Yes, I was remiss in sharing this STUNNING mother to be and her snowy maternity portraits back from January 2016.  I’ve since since this little baby turn into such a beautiful little girl.  I can’t wait to see them again this summer for family portraits on the beach.  I’ll be there tomorrow for another maternity session kicking off my 2017 beach sessions.  It’ll be over 90 degrees so I’m wondering if I can talk mom into getting into the water with me…

Stay tuned!

April 1st marked a very important day for me.  10 years ago I started this business and really had no idea what an incredible journey this would be.  Along the way I have met some amazing people. 
Those who have trusted and believed in me from the very beginning.  There were times I doubted myself, my talent, my abilities to keep pushing forward but with each new session I am reminded that I have been
given this gift not for something I can physically take away but that which I can give to others–memories that will truly be cherished for a lifetime, no matter how cliche it might sound.
With each new year comes motivation to take my creativity and passion to the next level.  I am so excited for what 2017 has in store and I cannot wait to be a part of capturing these precious moments
for you and your family for the first time or once again. 
To celebrate, I am offering some pretty sweet deals.  If you missed my newsletter that went out on Friday be sure to Subscribe for these very special offers.  As always, newsletter subscribers
are always the first to receive these notifications.  All new opt-ins between Monday April 4th and April 15th will receive this month’s special newsletter.  Session specials expire on April 15th so be sure to check ’em out before it’s too late!

Where does the time go?  Ladies, doesn’t it seem that while you watch somebody else’s pregnancy that it goes by in the blink of an eye meanwhile your own pregnancy seemed to go on for 40 years and not 40 weeks?  And your own children growing up so fast yet some moments or phases seem to never end.  They say the days are long but the years are short and I’m really truly now getting to realize just how true this is.

I was lucky to have my beautiful niece come for a milk bath session last month.  She just turned one on March 9th and I cannot believe a year has passed since the day I got to hold her in my arms at the hospital.  Happy Birthday Ms. Vivien!
