From Newborn to Senior Portraits- Documenting Life Journeys

From newborn to senior portraits...I still can’t believe it. For almost

two decades I’ve been photographing this handsome kid, and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Mason’s black and white newborn session was in my first house in Kirkwood. I had a daylight studio in my dining room with the most beautiful northern, window light. It was the same setup for his younger brother’s newborn session.

Over the years, there have been outdoor sessions, sessions at my former studio in Maplewood and then almost full circle, back to sessions in my new home studio prior to this senior session.



Having a client like Mason’s Mom, Julie, who believes in your work, is a photographer’s dream. Documenting her family and the boys growing up has been one of the true highlights of my 20-year career.

Our 2012 session with both boys is on the right. They are the cutest!
