A few years ago I had the pleasure of meeting two great teenagers while doing a surprise session for their dad. Now little sister, Abby, is a senior in high school and I was lucky enough to be able to capture her in all her beauty and talent!
Abby is a star on the Hillgrove softball team, even earning a softball scholarship to Florida State!! I asked her if she thinks she will miss home when she leaves for FSU, and she responded with a resounding "NOPE!" before I could even finish the sentence! This girl is ready for her next adventure!
A gorgeous girl in lace and cowboy boots in a field of tall grass with beautiful light...how could I NOT request a girlish spin?!
Congratulations on all your accomplishments, Abby! It was great to spend a morning with you and I'm so excited for the next big step in your life!
My cup runneth over lately! I love catching up with people I've had the joy of photographing in the past, and I recently reunited with two little girls that are celebrating the milestones of their first year. Baby Amelia was just 9 days old last time I saw her, but the other 356-ish days that have gone by since have only added to her cuteness! Enjoy the laid-back one year old Amelia!
Proper handling of a balloon per Amelia: shake balloon, talk to balloon, listen carefully for the balloon's reply!
Amelia's aunt, uncle, cousin, and grandmother were visiting from out of town, so we took the opportunity to update their (growing :) )family photos as well!
What a difference a year makes!
Those feet come in handy when reading a book!
The faces of a happy girl!
Happy first birthday, sweet Amelia!
For me, the greatest honor is to be repeatedly trusted with preserving a family's memories. I am so appreciative of the sweet families who allow me to watch their families continue to grow. I have one such a sweet family to share today! Bayleigh was just a little sweet baby doll, and all of the sudden she's toddling around and preparing to celebrate her first birthday! Have fun catching up with this cutie pie!
Bayleigh even spent some time at Mama Spa getting a mani/pedi before her shoot!
Love those slobbery open-mouthed baby kisses!
Every time the frogs and crickets and other crawly noisemakers would ramp up into the sounds of dusk, Bayleigh would burst into a huge smile and start dancing along! They were her own private band!!
Nope, not a zombie - just the jerky motions of a new walker!
She is just so dang cute - and so laid back too! Thanks so much for a great evening chasing your sweet girl around! I know she'll have a great first birthday!
Remember the adorable maternity shoot from a few weeks ago? Well, the sweet baby responsible for that bump has arrived and she's perfect! I got to meet the newest member of the family at just 6 days old. Meet sweet Ronnie Grace!
Ronnie gave her cousin Elisa some healthy competition for the most newborn smiles! She is a very happy sleeper!
I am so happy for you guys! Thanks so much for allowing me to spend some time soaking up the baby love!
Please enjoy session previews, silly stories about my children, and other random thoughts I feel compelled to share!
