I met with the Hartmann family for a spring family photography session at Ault Park. We scheduled a few months out to be sure that we could schedule near Evelyn's second birthday and it just happened to be the same weekend as the Cherry Blossom bloom! <3 what luck.
We welcomed a new family member this weekend, she is a sweet 8 week old golden doodle with four legs and a wet nose so I had to take some "newborn" pictures. :P
also because I am extra af- @Rory_dood
You know all of the lovely pictures that the artists, writers, and creators in your life that have bomb feeds? There is probably a photographer chillin behind a lens to make those happen :P
But seriously. There is so much work that goes on behind the scenes of running a business in this social media driven world. Since people love interacting directly with small businesses it is important to keep audiences engaged and share quality images of you to pair with your copy/story/ad/blog. Speaking of....I probably need to schedule one of these for myself since you might forget what I look like :P

Olivia from Baubles to Bubbles and I have worked together for a few different projects and when I she and Joe moved into their condo I love following along while she renovated and decorated their home. So of course I was stoked to do their couples photos. As if the amazing view, floor to ceiling windows and jewel tones weren't enough, Joe told me that their whole building gets a bomb discount on some of the local delicious food which sounds dangerous.
When the two arent eating delicious foods they are snuggling on the couch while reading or having competitive games of boggle. I suggested that they keep constant score on a chalk board so 25 years from now they can see who is the best! :P
If you are thinking of having a couples session I definitely recommend having your pictures taken in your home. It really just tells your story so well and is so sweet.
Thanks for hanging out with me Joe and Olivia!

First stop - Buffalo, New York!
After some shopping and refueling we headed towards our next destination - Portland, Maine
For the first chunk we stayed in downtown Portland in an air bnb. We spent our time trying all of the lobster rolls and oysters. <3 YUM
We tried at least 7 different lobster rolls, and the best, by far, was Eventide. I would trade all 6 of the other lobster rolls in for more from Eventide. Portland Lobster co was a close second though because they had such an awesome atmosphere with live music.
When we went eating lobster rolls we were brunching around the city - Maine blueberries are a real thing and they were ahhhhmazing.
More sister trips in the future <3 Pinky promise!
When my camera is charging you can find me playing with my little family or trying yummy new foods around the city.
I promise to tell horrible jokes and will probably be more awkward than you, but by the end of the day we will all be laughing. Which is how I get the real natural smiles that you see in my portfolio!
