Showering this birthday girl with love and attention was easy peasy for twin big sisters Andi and Cora!  I had the honor of photographing Brooks as a newborn and it was a complete joy seeing her bopping around a year later, trying to keep up with her sisters (and actually quite impressive at it!).  Happy birthday, Brooks!  I wanted to hang out with you all day long! 🙂

There is something super special about seeing a family get together with siblings, cousins, moms, dads, grandparents…not only can I see it through my lens, but I can always FEEL it when I am with everyone.  The happiness, the shared love – there was no shortage of it during this fun session, that is for sure!  Before Grandma makes a big move to Las Vegas soon, the families wanted to capture everyone so she would have some nice pictures to surround herself with in her new home.  I can’t wait to share the rest soon 🙂

I met this family when Andrew was only one year old! Wha, wha, What!?!  They have since moved to Germany for a couple years and were home for a little bit this summer with just enough time to squeeze in a photo session!! (YIPPY!)  I did have to dig deep to remember a few select German words from high school class…I don’t even think the kids were impressed :-\  However, what was impressive was their adorableness and ability to make every picture sparkle.  Thank you “K” family for another wonderful session!  Sicher reist zurück nach deutschland!

Up the Hill Photography started out as just two good friends chatting about a common passion for taking pictures and a shared dream to start a business doing what we love.  Then conversations got real.  The research started.  Many long nights spent in person/Facetiming/talking on the phone until way too late at night ensued.  Our first logo was designed (Ahhh – this is really happening!).  Our portfolio was built.  Our website launched (OMG!).   But the best, most cherishable piece of this story is the incredible friendship that developed.  Not many people get to say that they have been business partners with their best friend.  I am so lucky to have spent countless hours with mine, pouring our hearts into something that we developed together. That was over seven years ago.  As our lives have evolved, so has our business, and with that, a big change is happening that we would like to announce.

This isn’t a sad ending! I promise! Amy is making a wonderful decision that is the best one for her and her family, and she will be concluding her role in Up the Hill Photography as of this month.  I will be the sole photographer, and will do my very best to make her proud, but will miss her partnership immensely!
Thank you, Amy, for giving so much of yourself to these past seven unforgettable years together!
Love you girl!
