Growing Up With Remington


One of the greatest rewards of being a photographer is having the opportunity of being a part of the growth and beauty of the families we work with.  To go back and pull together sessions from maternity to first year birthday really is touching just in the awe of how life unfolds.  We’ve gotten to be with Heather, Russell and little Remington in their journey together since he was an anticipated joy to look forward to all snuggled underneath his parents loving hands as he grew in his mother’s belly and into their lives.

And, before we knew it, we were swept up into the excitement of Remington’s arrival as well as the contagious enthusiasm of his parent’s awe at this beautiful baby boy lovingly embraced in their arms.  It’s these moments that inspire hope, love and the beauty that life affords.

Our studio was honored to create their announcements to send out to friends and family.  It was undeniable that this beautiful baby boy, with his serious and deeply concentrated demeanor, such a wise old soul, was indeed the apple of his parent’s eyes.


Time raced by in a fleeting moment and we found ourselves packing our gear to head up to Loomis to capture little Remington’s 1st year milestone.  The park we ended up at used to be the familiar stomping grounds of his parents growing up which made the location that much more sentimentally drawing.   This little park’s private cove made for a lovely natural outdoor studio.  Remington was such a trooper on this warm summer day dealing with three new teeth coming in simultaneously.  It’s tough being a toddler, especially one so handsome and endearing.  Heather and Russell were also the winners of our recent portrait session give-away online on Facebook which gifted them a free portrait session.  We had a wonderful time with these three!!


Remington’s full gallery can be found on our Clientele Proofing Galleries.

A video of Remington’s charms has also been created from the combined three sessions and set to music which can be found below.

A big thank you and appreciation to my partner in creativity, my daughter, Merenda Gordon, who’s almost always by my side helping to create these great memories for our clientele.  I’d be lost without her.


We look forward to creating more memories with this wonderful family over the years to come!  🙂

Simply beautiful! I got all teary eyed watching that video. You guys have been so wonderful to work with. Couldn’t be happier. We’re truly grateful for everything you both have done and all the time and effort you’ve put into our sessions. We’re looking forward to more time with you both in the future.
