Miss L. was *such* a lady for me yesterday afternoon. She slept the entire time I was working with her and let me position her just about however I wanted. She even sleptwhile laying in her great-grandmother’s bowl … ahhh, total perfection 🙂 She has beautiful creamy skin, lots of newborn wrinkles and the most squooshable lips … I could have cuddled her all day!
This session was even more special for me because I have known her family for years. I am SO glad I had the privilege of capturing such a fleeting time in her life 🙂 It won’t be long before she’s sitting up in that bowl! Congratulations Yolande’, Mark, Ethan & Austen on your new blessing … I can just *feel* how much she is loved!
What a difference 6 months can make! You may remember this little guy from his newborn session HERE, but he barely resembles the little peanut he was then. He was born a few weeks premature but you sure wouldn’t know it now!
I saw a LOT of different facial expressions from him yesterday … he ran the gamut of super-serious to seriously funny. LOL.
This last one just makes me smile – how utterly happy does he look?! You can definitely see how *funny* his daddy is – he was cracking up!
Mom, Dad (and big sis!) – thank you for the opportunity to capture your little man (again!) at such a fun stage – this is one of my favorite ages to photograph and it’s so easy to see why. I just love watching little personalities blossom 🙂
Welcome Baby Christian! This little guy made his debut on Thanksgiving last week – what a perfect way to celebrate 🙂 So, so much to be thankful for!
Not only does Baby Christian have two of the most loving parents, he also has an awesome house! I loved using our surroundings for this session – they made the most beautiful backdrops!
I know I *just* posted an image of the same pose below, but I couldn’t pass up sharing this giggle. Unfortunately I don’t get to decide which poses little ones will smile during! He was literally laughing in his sleep and it completely made my day 🙂
Isn’t the furniture in this home amazing? Mom has amazing taste … can’t WAIT to see what she comes up with for little Christian’s 6-month session 🙂
Mom & Dad – I truly enjoyed spending the morning (and afternoon – LOL) with you. Christian is a beautiful little guy – you are so blessed! Thank you for being so hospitable and helpful – I loved getting to know you!
Miss M. is back and she definitely rocked the gum ball machine! Actually she pretty much rocked her entire session, but I was particularly excited about the gum ball machine 🙂 We picked it up at a yard sale several years ago and it’s been collecting dust in the basement. But after a clean-up job (thanks to my awesome hubby for that!) and tracking down some colorful gum balls, it now has a super-fun job as the newest prop in my collection 🙂
I just can’t get over her eyes, just stunning. I am *such* a sucker for blue-eyed babies.
This last one cracks me up! LOL. I just *had* to add it into the peek. I snapped it right after she tried to eat the machine. Boy, I sure do love babies. LOL.
Thanks Mom for spending an awesome girl’s morning with me! Your little girl just gets prettier and prettier every time I see her! I can’t wait to see how much she’s blossomed at our 1-year session! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
I’m pleased to introduce Mr. O. at just 3 days old – how tiny is he?! I was really excited about doing the session so early on, but he didn’t share my enthusiasm. LOL. Fortunately he cooperated *just enough* for me and I was able to get some really gorgeous shots! I just LOVE him in black & white (as you can see – LOL).
Kristen & Mike – Congratulations and THANK YOU for yet another opportunity to capture such an amazing time in your family! You newest little one is totally adorable! As always, it was an absolute pleasure! Hope you enjoy your sneak 🙂
