Being a family photographer is the BEST job. After all, I get to play with little ones while documenting their relationship with their parents!

I have the fondest memories of my babymoon in Ireland. Zach and I packed our bags when I was 20 weeks pregnant with Perry and traveled across Ireland, Scotland, and England over the course of two weeks.
