"A person's a person, no matter how small." - Dr. Seuss

I began my photography career thinking that I would not undertake child photography. I was awkward with kids; I didn't know what to do around them. I was told multiple times that once I had children that is all I would want to photograph. I will admit that I scoffed at every person who told me that...

Now, I am a (fairly) new mom. My daughter, Lyra (the gorgeous model in these photos), just turned 5 months old. In those 5 months, my attitude has 180-ed. Being around her and hanging out with other moms who have young children, I am beginning to see the quirks, the personalities, the tiny "adults"...

As much as I love playing in the studio, children shine more in their own surroundings. Photographing them at home, in their own rooms with their own toys, you get more of a sense of their unique personality. The interactions with their parents, going about their daily routines, speak more to me.


I've included a few of the photos I have taken recently of Lyra. Stay tuned for more cutie pies!
