This summer is flying by, isn’t it?!  I hope you’re enjoying every bit – hot days, swimming in the pool, popsicles, all that fun stuff! I’m looking forward to some more fun things with my family over the next few weeks, and then I’ll be opening up the calendar for fall mini-sessions like this one!  Click here to see what’s left for this summer, and let me know if you want to be on the list for this fall!


This little man was cracking me up during his session last fall… that LOOK out of the corner of his eye?! Love it.  And he definitely had opinions about what we should do and where we should go. Confidence for sure.  Hope to see him again this fall!  And I’d love to see your family too! Click here to see what dates are still available this summer, or email me to get on the list for this fall – the autumn schedule will open up in a few weeks!


Yep, these kiddos are beyond cute. I really have nothing more to say, because their cuteness is overwhelming. And it’s not just how they look, but their personalities are awesomely cute too.  How lucky am I to get to hang out with amazing kids like this all the time?!

I’d love to meet your amazingly cute kids too! Click here to choose a mini-session date and email me to book it today!


When you have three boys under the age of 4, you are always on the move… so it’s a good thing that Sweet Pea mini-sessions are all about moving and playing and laughing and jumping! No tripods or studio backdrops here – just fun with your family!  Click here to see the upcoming session dates, or you can email me if you’d like to look ahead to autumn sessions. That schedule will be opening up in about a month!


I hope you’re having a great summer with your family!  We are spending this week in Maine at a family reunion (30 people in one huge house on a lake = amazing memories) and I hope you’re making some fun memories with your kiddos too!  Even a fun play-day at the park can be something they remember fondly.  That’s always my goal at mini-sessions — to make it a fun time that you and your kids will enjoy and remember with a smile.

If you’d like to book a mini-session this summer, there are still a few dates available. Click here to see the options and then send me an email!
