My Grandmother's name is Violet so it was nice to have a client that is going to name her baby girl Violette. From the English word violet for the purple flower, ultimately derived from Latin viola. It was common in Scotland from the 16th century, and it came into general use as an English given name during the 19th century. I love tidbits like that. In honor of Baby Violette, purple was a big influence in her maternity shoot. Her Mom and Dad were a lot of fun to work together creating these images.

Bella Cianna

I love photographing baby girls with flowers. The results are always so cute. Cianna is three months old and so precious. She is on my baby plan, so her next shoot will be @ seven months. I really enjoy seeing the changes through-out a baby's first year. It very rewarding to capture this fleeting moment.

The Beauty of Natural Light

Whenever possible, I like to photograph using natural light. This was a cloudy afternoon which creates a lovely softbox effect.
