Miss Z’s peek :-)

Here’s the rest of Little Miss Z’s sneak peek! I have lots of favorites from this session, so here are a few … Mom says she sees this “eyebrow look” a lot – glad we were able to capture it today!

Bubbles anyone? LOL. She was talking AND blowing bubbles all while being super happy – this girl has talent on top of being utterly adorable! (You can see that the pink flower headband has been getting a lot of use over the past few weeks – I’m so glad!)

A vintage-y version of the portrait I already posted. I think I may like this one in full color best, but this one pretty much rocks too πŸ™‚ If her smile doesn’t make your day, I don’t know WHAT will!


A successful attempt with proud big brothers today, yay! Sooo cute – you can certainly see where baby sister gets her good looks. I actually prefer this square crop to the 4×6, so I posted it instead.

Thanks Z. family for another awesome session! I can’t wait to see how much your little woman has changed by our next Sweet Beginnings session. Take care!

Happy Miss Z!

Couldn’t help myself – here’s one from this morning … what a sweet almost-4-month old πŸ™‚ She looks just like the doll she was as a newborn! A bigger peek to come!

Miss Happy





Isn’t Miss E. a DOLL?! Her eyes … WOW! She was a great model for me and I got the opportunity to do this session at a gorgeous home built in the mid-1800’s! Thanks Grandma & Grandpa πŸ™‚ The house was amazing – tons of cool architectural details that you just don’t see anymore. It was the perfect spot to capture this adorable 6-month old.
I’m super-excited about a bunch of the portraits we got, but I’m most excited about the first one. I’ve been wanting a perfect “grabbing feet” portrait and I finally had success, yay! Thanks to Miss E. for allowing me to capture it! And thanks to her awesome family for a fun morning – it was a pleasure to meet you all!

Another new baby girl

At almost 3 weeks old, this baby girl is one of the “oldest” newborns I’ve photographed. We got some awesome portraits, but boy did Mom & I have to work for them! When Miss A. finally drifted off, I was able to capture some really great shots. I love the one below – aren’t her eyelashes the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?


One of the other little features I’m in love with is her toes. LOL. I love capturing all the little newborn “parts” … especially when they are different. Check out how her fourth toe curls around and under the third toe – totally awesome.

I did one of my “glowy” effects on this last one … it gives this image a nice angelic look that I adore.

Mom, thanks for being so patient with me and your new bundle of joy πŸ™‚ We captured several winners, that’s for sure! I’ll let you know when I finish up with the rest and I’ll see you in 3 months!

Precious little man





First I need to apologize to Mom & Dad for the several-day delay on the sneak peek πŸ™‚ But I’ll definitely say – I think the wait was totally worth it! Check out some of the awesome portraits we got of this new little guy – these are some of my favorites so far. Mom worked her special powers and got him into a pretty deep sleep several times … that afforded me the ability to curl him up so perfectly – I’m just tickled with how that first image turned out. Wouldn’t you love to be THAT flexible?!
Thanks Mom & Dad for the opportunity to capture your little guy at such a special time. I appreciate your willingness to be peed on so many times – you both were SUCH great sports!
