Baby B is Brand New | Reno Newborn Photographer

This is baby #2 for this wonderful family! I had the pleasure of photographing baby boy #1 as he grew through his first year and I am looking forward to watching this adorable baby change into a little boy as well.

Baby H is 6 weeks new | Reno Newborn Photographer

This beautiful baby was a little older than I normally shoot ‘newborns’ but she rocked her session and we got some gorgeous images. I love that she kept giving little grins, and when she was wide awake she was very calm and gave the best eye contact.

Baby L is two weeks new | Reno Newborn Photographer

This precious boy slept so soundly during his first photo shoot. My favorite images are of the brothers together. But I also love the vintage feel we kept throughout this session.

Jessica is a senior!

I always enjoy working with high school seniors. It is a nice change to have my subject want(usually) to cooperate. I am, of course, comparing this to working with toddlers. 🙂 Jessica is a beauty and a wonderful soul. Her portraits are some of my favorite.

If you would like to book a senior session, email today!

A Birthday Cake Smash |Reno Family Photographer

 This sweet girl is turning one year old in just a few weeks, and to celebrate she ate a cake… one teeny tiny fingertip at a time.



But once she noticed her toes had been attacked by frosting, she decided to embrace the messiness.sugarcoatedimages-8356




After all, if you can pull off covered-in-frosting-and-still-cute then you might as well go for it.

I am over the MOON!

I can’t begin to tell you how OVER THE MOON excited I am about this new prop! It is something I have been wanting for a while, but I couldn’t bring myself to splurge on such a large expense. So, on Valentine’s Day my wonderful husband surprised me by building this adorable prop.


I have even ordered a couple new backdrops to specifically go with this darling moon. But I was so anxious to try it out I couldn’t wait the 5 days for them to arrive.


Although this prop is meant for newborns, I have my 8 month old modeling it. It will be just darling with a brand new baby, and I can’t wait to use it! Who is going to be the lucky one to use it first???



If you are expecting, e-mail to be added to my maternity list so your newborn spot is saved!

Hey, there’s a blog now!

With as much time as I spend working on the computer I usually consider myself fairly tech savvy. But when my 5 year old asked what a blog was, I was stumped. I mean, I have read blogs, and I felt like I had an understanding of what they were, but to try to explain it…. like I said, stumped. Her next question was why didn’t I have a blog. My initial response was because I already had a website… but what makes a blog and a website different??? So, due to my 5 year old’s curiosity, and my lack of understanding, I have created a blog. My hope is to share more of my sessions, rather than just a single shot or two like I do on Facebook.

If you are a fan of my photography, I would appreciate you spreading the name of Sugar Coated Images. I love my clients and getting the chance to work with each of their friends and family is the best. I have yet to meet a family that I haven’t had a blast working with. You are all amazing and make what I do worth it. So, thank you!!
