Family Photography - Moment to Memory

This is my fourth photo shoot with adorable Cianna. One of the best things about being a portrait artist is that I get to watch these kids grow up. It’s like watching a caterpillar turn in to a beautiful butterfly. I’m in awe at the many changes.

Cianna was in my baby video along with Cianna' Mommy. It has almost been a year since we did the video and you can see the changes in Cianna. Children are only tiny for a VERY short time so I like to focus on preserving parent’s memories of their child before they grow up. . . it happens sooner than you know!

I love photographing parent's & the children feet together because it help establish a perspective, and size. Cianna's feet will never be this tiny ever again.

You can see the love in Cianna's Mommy's face as she looks with admiration at her husband. A magical moment.

We did several outfit changes during the shoot for Cianna. Cianna's Mommy had some favorite clothes that she wanted in the photographs.

Kathryn & Mikko - Couple Photography

Once in awhile it is good for the photographer to be in front of the camera. I was over-due. I had been wanting couple photographs of me and the love of my life, Mikko, forever. I picked my favorite photographer, Ben Craig to photograph us. I have worked with Ben on so many weddings and love his style. I planned out the shoot but Ben was the artist in capturing my vision which was to show how much Mikko and I love each other. Thank you Ben!!

I absolutely adore feet shots. I had scouted our location, The Camp & The Lab and knew about these stairs & planned that we would do our feets next to You and Me. I made sure we had stylish shoes, too! This image is going on the cover of our album.

One of my favorite images. I have it on my desk next to my computer. Also, it is in a wall grouping on our living room wall. It shows my pure happiness with Mikko. He is an amazing man and I'm blessed to be spending the rest of my life with him.

Second favorite image, my happily ever after ending.

Awesome mural at the Lab.

We did this shoot back in April on a very cold day the above image was one of the last that Ben took. I was so cold but worth it. That is what I love about photography because you can really tell a story. This is my story with my wonderful man.
