My ever growing extended family is at it again! I'm so happy to be able to introduce you to the newest addition, baby Elisa! At just 12 days old, she didn't quite weigh 7lbs but was one of the strongest and most alert babies I've worked with!
I have never shot a baby that actually LOOKED at the camera! She would hear the clicking, then turn her head. Her little eyebrows would lift slightly when she started to focus on the source of the noise!
She is also wins the prize for the most smiles! She has extra sweet dreams!
The constant adoration of two new parents in love with their creation...
My cousins are a very artistic couple - they painted this wall mural themselves (you should see some of mom, Aubrie's, carved pumpkins at halloween!).
They carried the hot air balloon theme throughout the room. Our Grandaddy flew hot air balloons and he would have been so proud to see his influence in his great granddaughter's room. Elisa's dad, Will, had to create the design for the lego balloon online and ordered customized lego people for the basket. So cute!
Congratulations Will and Aubrie! Your little Elisa is an angel and you guys will do great by her. I can't wait to see her again at the next family gathering!
One of my favorite families is back! I've been photographing Ally since she was about a year old. I've loved watching her grow into a confident, independent, sweet girl. 6 months ago, she got a little brother to add to the photos! Enjoy this loving (and typical) pair!
I can't remember where I heard this, but as the oldest of four siblings, I think this quote quite accurate:
"Having a sibling is like having a best friend you can't get rid of."
There's not much in my world more exciting than a baby bump. The miracle that is a woman's body, the blind love for the unseen child by the parents, the questions of how labor will go and what the baby will look like, the preparing of tiny clothes and soothing nurseries - it's a very special mark on a couple's timeline.
After a bit of rescheduling due to rain, I met up with the beautiful Ashley and proud daddy-to-be, Jeff, for a perfect sunset session. Enjoy!
I enjoyed getting to know you both and can't wait to meet your little guy soon!
Please enjoy session previews, silly stories about my children, and other random thoughts I feel compelled to share!
