Babies

From newborns to crawlers to new walkers, babies are so much fun to photograph. The light in their eyes is always there and it's so much fun to capture the memories. The old adage is true, "they grow up so fast!" They really do.

Kids!!

Ah yes, kids! These are all children who are past the toddler stage but have entered the sometimes "difficult to photograph" stage. I like to warm up to my little clients by finding out a few things about them. Do they have any hobbies, favorite shows, movies, or things they like to do? Are they artistic or sporty? Not a concern: they generally warm up to me if they haven't already met me and we are able to get those smiles.

Engagement

Becoming engaged is such a special time. New feelings come about (including the stress of planning a wedding) but I very much enjoyed capturing this couple's special moments together. The light was just perfect that fall day and we joked around and got some romantic shots as well. I very much enjoyed this shoot.

Families

A lot of my families who come to me are by referral. A close friend or family member has had their portraits done by Rank Photography so word-of-mouth brings them in. Everyone should have a nice 8 x 10 or 11 x 14 gallery print hanging on their living room wall!

Here are some of my favorite local families I have photographed.

Toddlers

I seem to book a lot of toddler sessions. I welcome the challenge, as my oldest always had a lot of energy as a toddler. I have yet to encounter a child as much energy as he had, so I haven't had a problem capturing the moments. I enjoy following the kids around with the camera and just capturing those natural, playful, candid moments. Here are a few of my favorites.

It's official!

I have a website. This is a work in progress, and long overdue, but I am putting this out there to have in additional to the Facebook fan page. My "under construction" sign is up until I am able to load some galleries. Thank you for your patronage.
