I love my newborn photography, it is the heart of what I do.  But it is also nice to stretch out of my comfort zone and apply my knowledge of lighting and technique to other genres.

I always get a kick out of 'Dad Parenting Hacks' but this one holds a special place in my heart.  

I think every mom knows what it feels like to be SO tired you can't keep your eyes open.  Once kids stop taking their naps, it's hard to find a

One of the perks of being a maternity and newborn photographer is that I spend a lot of time chatting with new moms...I get to see and hear about new gear and trends.

One of the new trends I have been seeing with baby registries is to create a list of items, but not at...

My kids are long out of car seats now, but when they were, I was a card carrying safety freak.  I spent hours researching car seat safety and installation.  So much so that I seriously considered becoming a certified car seat installer.
