Today I’m excited to share new promotional images of a girl I’m proud to call a friend, Jamie Delaine.  She’s smart, she’s successful, and she’s been beautifully photographing weddings since she was in high school!  Jamie has since grown her business beyond just shooting, and always seems to have more than one project on the go.

Jamie and her husband Randy are also the founders of The School Sessions, a non-profit where photographers photograph a session in the month of April, with the entire session fee going toward building a school in Haiti.  If you’re a photographer or a potential client, it’s not too late to get involved!  Please check out the website for more information.

For all of Jamie’s business endeavours, new head shots were needed and we had so much fun working on these together…

My beautiful friend Julie and her husband welcomed another little boy into their family recently! It was such a treat to meet him and document them as a family of four, at home. And as though I wasn’t already excited to meet my next baby…seeing Nash snuggle into his mama’s chest, in all of his new baby scent and sweetness, I just about melted.

Julie, Sean, and Jude, we’re so happy for you and the arrival of Nash! He’s pretty perfect.

Last April, Kenzie was born to a past bride and groom of mine, Vanessa and Kenny. However, she wasn’t due to arrive until August – over three months later. Needless to say, this sweet little girl has been a fighter since the day she was born. She’s also been carried by the unconditional love of her beautiful mama and daddy, and the prayers and support of so many family and friends, not to mention doctors and nurses.

As a parent, it’s hard to imagine the struggle that Kenny and Vanessa have faced as they’ve watched their baby girl meet challenges that not many little ones have to endure. But they’ve handled it with such grace and positivity. Kenzie may have spent the first several months of her life in hospitals, but she is thriving and in her happy place now at home! It was pretty sweet to see her there, and document this special family…
