My Style | Portrait & Lifestyle Photography

“Some of the best compliments I receive come from children themselves … a high-five at the grocery store, a secret smile at the movies and a request to go see Ms. Abbe for pictures. We connect, we have fun. We behave, we misbehave. There’s no stress and we make great memories. It’s all part of my style.”

There are so many photographic styles I love, everything from modern family lifestyle photography to traditional children’s portraiture. My style is a mix of these genres – the best of both worlds – using natural light to capture newborns, children and families.

My sessions include joy-filled moments, gorgeous posed shots and yes, genuine smiles . . . those I’m-having-so-much-fun-and-can’t-help-it smiles. My sessions also include stolen quiet moments, precious shy moments and hilarious candid moments because in truth, we are all many things. It is my job to capture those many facets of every subject I photograph. I want you to remember how wonderfully unique your family and your children were at each stage of development. My kids are 12 and 9 now. It all goes by so quickly.

My clients are looking for this unique mix and real connections. They want the best of both worlds and enjoy the variety. They love seeing beautiful images of their life, their children, their connections. Hear what they have to say on my client testimonials page.

I hope you love the pictures here in my photography portfolio and on the blog. If you do, then please contact me for a session consultation.
