Cohen is turning 1 this month. I can’t believe it! This marks my third time photographing Cohen but a first photographing him outside of his home. This time we decided to switch things up and meet at the library so he could play and do his thing. Turns out his thing was mostly just staring at me with an open mouth. Then, he warmed up. And then he was off! It was fun trying to keep up with him as he explored the colorful library. Enjoy this sampling of my favorites!

I met up with this sweet family at Stephen’s Lake Park the other day. It was a beautiful fall morning with a mix of clouds and sun, a slightly chilly breeze and lots of colors on the trees.

I actually photographed sweet Nora last November and was excited when Meagan emailed me recently about scheduling a mini-portrait session for their family. I captured quite a few portraits during our short session, but when it comes to posting favorites on the blog I often favor the candid interactions that occur between poses. Here’s a look at what my time at the park was like with the Prestegards…

Thank you Meagan and Garrett for inviting me to photograph your family again! Enjoy your preview!
