Dog Days of Summer...

Oh summer, how I miss you..

While the wind whistles outside I am transported back to this moment in my mind; one of my favorite moments EVER.

My friends and I decided to do a cake smash shoot to commemorate the year we all turned the big 3-0 and it was the most fun we’ve ever had together. We got all dolled up, made an awesome set on the beach, wore tutus & crowns, played music and laughed until we cried! I clicked all day and loved every second of it! Lucky for me my favorite assistant (my hubby) was also there to click and get shots with me in them (which I must admit is SUPER rare….).

Just as my cake smash was done and I started cleaning up, my little sweet-tooth Tommy couldn’t help but run over and ask if he could have some cake too. It being a cake smash and all, no one had brought utensils so he did just as we all had and went in face first! As he was chewing with his cute, squishy face full of cake he said “Cake Kiss Mama?” so we laughed and kissed with our mouths and cheeks full of icing.

It’s incredible what just one picture can do; it can bring you to tears or make you laugh. It can give you the power to relive a moment or an entire day…. It’s pure magic….

The Struggle is Real

Today was an amazing day. I LOVE photographing newborns and today I got to work with two super cute, super tiny twin boys! In addition to these wonderful little babes there is also a very active toddler in this home keeping mom & dad on their very tired toes!

It’s not always easy to get toddlers to cooperate and get engaged with new siblings but I love capturing the “keep it real” behind-the-scenes moments like this one where you get to feel that moment in time. It’s not placed or rehearsed but its perfect and I wouldn’t change a thing.

New Beginnings

Well, here goes nothing!

I’ve never written a blog or anything that wasn’t a post-it note in my kid’s lunch or a honey-do list!! So with that in mind, I have decided to reinvent my company and start letting everyone in to the behind the scenes magic that goes on over here. This whole process has proven to be quite challenging but at the same time rewarding.

So without further ado, I present to you the new and improved Windward Studio!
