I have known Miss Penny’s family since her big brother was just 3 months old. I enjoyed following his growth with milestone sessions and was SUPER excited to learn that he was going to be a BIG BROTHER!
I truly love each and every one of my clients and this sweet family is no exception.
When styling her session, Penny’s mom said the words all newborn photographer live to hear…”I love everything you do, I trust you.”
Now don’t get me wrong , I love Pinterest, but no creative soul wants a board full of “must haves”. I don’t mind the occasional “inspiration” but Pinterest almost stifles my creativity.
I LIVE to create beautiful, unique art for each and every one of my clients. Thank you all for always supporting me and allowing me to make your and my visions come true in your images!
What can I say about the Trainor family? I mean besides the obvious adorableness! I have had the privilege of watching them blossom from a young couple anticipating the arrival of there first child to a beautiful family of four!
Their faces say it all…pure happiness.
But, how could you not be happy raising these two adorable little fellas?
It is a yearly tradition I have come to cherish, my session with the Hooper family! Every year I am amazed at their ability to nail their session in record time.
This year we were met with some extra challenges. Our original session date was postponed by Hurricane Matthew.
So we set another date only to arrive at the preplanned beach access point to find several photographers and their clients who had their cars broken into and a park ranger who was “going to lock us in”…so needless to say…we hurried to find another nearby beach access with only minutes to spare before sunset.
In pure Hooper fashion these four cranked out smiles and delight and we completed there session with only minute of daylight left.
To say I am thankful for those who continue to support this little business of mine year after year would be an understatement. Even as I evolve and change my business there are so many of you who continue to allow me to capture your memories. While I know you could easily go to someone who is offering slightly out of focus images for $30 sessions, you choose my art and trust my vision. I am eternally gratefully for you all!

If you are anything like me, then Back to School time is a busy time for your family. Before the new school year dust settles we are inundated with homework, rules, paperwork fundraisers, and fall school portraits. If you are anything like me you forget your child has picture day and they end up in an old t-shirt with bedhead!! I always feel obligated to buy the terrible photos anyway because, well, because it is my baby!! I can’t just let them throw pictures away of my baby!! Not to mention keeping the tradition alive of keeping a school photo each year and comparing growth from one grade to the next. Well after a few years of less than stellar school pictures I decided to be proactive this year and take my kiddos back to school photos, Simply Newborn style!
They ended up being adorable and I decided to open them up to all of you! I am thrilled with the results!!! If you missed out, don’t worry I think this will be an annual affair.
I had the absolute honor of working with Ingrid Wilson of Ingrid Wilson Photography and Dena Powell of Everyday Moments Photography during a recent collaboration with Change of Color. We spent a fun filled morning capturing Change of Color’s new line of children’s shirts. These shirts embrace and celebrate the beauty of children of color. Not only are the shirts totally adorable but the company itself stands for something pretty amazing! Their mission statement says it all… “Change of Color – kids clothing is increasing representation of kids of color and encouraging all kids to make a statement through fashion about embracing diversity and inclusion.” I am on love with these shirts and the movement behind it.
No child should feel like they cannot relate to their world, even in something we take for granted like a book, a movie or on their own clothing.
If you haven’t checked out their clothes you’re missing out! I cannot wait to get one of each for my babies! They are having a special opening celebration, enjoy 20% off using the code “GRAND”!!! ❤️❤️
It is always wonderful when a newborn client returns for a Family Session, but when they contact you wanting to surprise their wife with a family session for Mother’s Day, I mean come on, how sweet is that, epic right?!?
Guys don’t get me wrong, I know we give you a hard time, but it is usually the wives who make contact and set everything up for these sessions.
