Gen & Cody

Cody is a rambunctious, Aussie-mix pup, with lots and lots of energy. And then some. When Paul & Gen first adopted Cody, they had no idea that he was an accomplished thief, expert at stealing and hiding everything he could get his teeth into: socks, flip flops, tennis shoes… He particularly likes money, yep the green ones. He can effortlessly lift bills directly from your pockets or wallet and you’ll only notice it when he decides to taunt you, shaking them directly in front of your face, before scampering off around the corner. It is all a big chasing game for him, but if you don’t give chase, he will probably bury everything, like lessor dogs do with bones. Or, he might decide to shred it into a million little pieces just for the fun of it. It’s quite funny when it’s somebody else’s stuff in his mouth, not so much when he has yours. Check out his beautiful eyes! Note- only Gen and Cody are in the photos, Paul was still looking for his flip-flops.

Sarah & Whitney

Sarah and Whitney are so cute together. I LOVE photographing people in love. There is a certain look in their eyes, a genuine smile on their faces, giggles that inevitably happen during the shoot and just an all around feeling of happiness. Happiness is the biggest difference between a good picture and a great one.  Happiness is the key!

I am so glad we decided to do this impromptu photo session.

Sarah - Andrea, you’re amazing! It’s been our running joke that it’s impossible for us to take a good couple picture…until now! You made the whole experience relaxing and fun. Thank you for the beautiful work- a perfect addition to our brand new apartment!

Genevieve - Awesome pictures of 2 cool people!

Baby Logan

Last week my (little) brother Marcus and his wife Heather welcomed their little bundle of joy into the world, Logan Marcus Allen Jones. I was scheduled to go visit them this week, but I couldn’t help myself and had to hop on a plane early to meet my new nephew (and take some pictures of course).

Little Logan is so cute! He was easy going and after the right encouragement (<-trade secrets), he slept the entire shoot for us.

The party began early. We already had Marcus and Heather at my mom's house, then of course mom was there too and right as I am getting ready to start shooting, a couple of my aunts (Linda and Brenda) plus my grandma Momo called and said they are on their way to come see us. I wasn't sure how this was going to work out with all the people coming and going, but the day was perfect. Everyone got to hold him, I was able to visit a bit and photograph baby all in a single afternoon. It was a big party and little Logan was a good sport, posing for me like a pro.

I am so happy I got to see and hug everyone and I loved every minute I got to spend with baby. Granted, I love every minute I spend with all the babies I photograph, but I am slightly partial to Logan, after all, he is my nephew:)

Check out his chubby cheeks, can they be any more kissable!!!

Grandma Jones - I can’t remember having more fun watching you film our little Logan. I’ve never seen you in action with your job, and I’m soooo proud of you and your professionalism. Even with family talking to you and bothering you, the pictures turned out so great. We could not love them more and the memories are priceless. Thank you sweet daughter for hopping on that plane and meeting Logan and filming him. THANK YOU for these lasting memories. We love you dearly. Mom and Dad
