        Baby girl turned one! We got the whole family in on it.

        Happy {Belated} First Birthday!!

        It’s not business as usual. I’m used to homeschooling, but the load doubled and I lost ALL my editing time!


        This session was TWO weeks ago! Maybe longer? I’ve lost track. *Insert snarky comment about photographers guilting and shaming each other here #benice*

        Mom was planning for cherry blossom photos for weeeeeks.

        We planned to execute about the time the state at home orders came down. 😷 Thankfully, she loved the look of the tree that was already in full bloom on my street and we went for it… distantly of course.


        Annnd we managed a full session with big bro, mom and dad on a weekday evening, even started before dad arrived!

        Full sessions are limited only time and light. We nailed down a long list of shots in just one hour! More details here.
