Smiling princess

There are so many things I adore about this first image … the obvious adorable newborn smile, her curly ear, the cowlick that her brother also sports and the back wrinkles. I just love it when I catch a newborn mid-smile, it totally makes my day πŸ™‚

This little princess was pretty much perfect after about 3 hours when momma finally got her drifting off. Although she’s fighting a bit of jaundice her skin was absolutely perfect otherwise.

And when she was really sleepy, she let me mold her almost any way I wanted (save the placement of her hands a few times – she was quite particular about where they should be!).

This image is, to me, the epitome of the fetal position – look at her teeny tiny bottom! Oh so precious.

To finish off this fun peek, I included a shot of Miss M.’s big brother at just 17 months old. I kept telling mom how “beautiful” he was and then corrected myself with “handsome.” LOL. But seriously, he is one gorgeous little guy – I can’t wait to see what a beauty the new little princess is at the next session!
Thank you for inviting me into your home during such a special time! It was fun getting to know your family and I appreciate “using” your new baby girl as a model for all of my new props. We got some really awesome portraits with the new stuff, I’m saving them for your gallery πŸ™‚

On the move!

I always enjoy photographing this little guy. You may remember him as the Little Sailor HERE. At 9 months now, he is moving around a ton compared to our last session. He also has such a variety of facial expressions … I think we just *may* have captured them all πŸ™‚ I’ll leave the final call up to Mom though. Here are a few of my favorites so far. He is pulling himself up on everything and crawling all over. He is super entertained by Mom & Dad too, which you can especially see in the first portrait (love the little teefers!).
Thanks again M & B for another great session! I’m so glad the weather held out for us! I can’t wait to see your little guy in another 3 months!

Mama and her boys

What a beautiful family! This was the third time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing them … you may remember the boys because their portrait won the Christmas FB contest at the end of last year. Of course the little guy is much bigger now – almost 8 months – and such a cutie! He was also extremely happy even given the humidity and the bugs πŸ™‚ I also really love seeing the relationship he has with his older brother, it’s totally priceless.
It almost pained me to convert any of these to b&w, so I only posted one. I liked all of the colors so much, but really do feel that the last one looks nicer converted – you can really see the love between mom & son, so precious πŸ™‚ That’s also a real smile from Mr. J. – I think they were having so much fun that, for just a second, they forgot I was there.

Meet Mr. Eyelashes

Boy, I have really lucked out with newborns that have amazing eyelashes recently! This little guy definitely wins the prize for the longest eyelashes – they’re just stunning πŸ™‚ He also had a head full of hair and was a perfect model yesterday. He wasn’t very excited about being curled up, but he was so precious all stretched out, that it didn’t really matter!
Thanks O. Family for the opportunity to capture such a special time in your life, I had so much fun! I’ll let you know as soon as I finish up with the rest of your proofs. Hope you’re getting some good sleep!

Hello Mr. Peanut

How utterly adorable is this guy?! He was a peanut at birth – I think Mom said 6lbs 14oz, and he lost another 10oz while in the hospital. He was so squishy and bendy – I love how his little legs just rolled up underneath of his body. We had to work for these shots – but it was all worth it – he’s really gorgeous (uh-hem, I mean handsome). I really appreciate Mom and especially Dad putting up with being peed on … a lot πŸ™‚ I am STILL laughing about the incident that happened right before I left (we’ll keep that between us though).
Thank you so very much for inviting me into your home and spending the morning with me!
