Haha, well, okay. Weather matters. I would normally reschedule a session if it's pouring rain, but when you are only in the country for 23 hours and a wonderful and busy family of four has painstakingly carved 2 hours out of their jampacked day, there isn't a choice. So we forged ahead. I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how successfully the umbrellas, trees, medieval arches and supermarket arcades sheltered us from the constant unrelenting downpour.
So much so, in fact, that I wouldn't hesitate to...
I had a blast with this fun family for my first session in Copenhagen 2017! Serendipity took us to the train station and the pursuit of a bright red s-tog (commuter train) driving by in the background kept us there for a while! Then to the beach where there was dancing, a game of tag and some running in the water with one jeans leg rolled up - throw back to toddler days for one family member (can you spot which one?). Totally fun.
When my son went off to preschool at the ripe old age of 3.1, I was excited for him to have new experiences and independence, I was excited for me to have a bit of me time back and time to get some work done guilt free, and I was excited to get our family's very first school picture!

Playing a bit of catch up here today. Please tell me I'm not the only one who wished there were more hours in the day and that days didn't just fly by!?
I wanted to share the lovely Kingston whose newborn photos I captured back in March. Kingston was born to his lovely mama but also big brother York, who was nearly 6 at the time (and is 6 now - Happy B-day York!). I have to say, while I always feel a connection to mamas of newborns (because I'm taken back to those unforgettable newborn days myself), I feel it even more so when parents have children with a...
Last year, the mother of a little boy from Texas was the subject of copyright thievery. A photo of her son Jameson was stolen and used without permission within a number of social media forums. While copyright thievery of images, words, art and ideas on the internet is rampant these days, and a murky subject to navigate, Jameson’s story goes much deeper.
Jameson was only 4 years old, and was born with Pfeiffer syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. It is one of a small number of syndromes, known as
