After making his debut a little early (just a few days after their beautiful maternity session), sweet baby Finley was ready for his first photo session at just 3 weeks old. Check out this perfect little peanut!
Daddy's favorite little "deer" :)
These brave new parents have been through a lot in Fin's first three weeks, but have settled nicely into parenthood and loving on that sweet boy. I'm so excited to watch this little guy continue to grow and thrive!
Sweet baby Avett is here, officially making Holden a big brother! At just 5 days old, this little guy was a CHAMP for his first photo session! He brought meaning to the phrase "sleep like a baby"! Enjoy this precious boy and his amazing family!
Proud big brother admiring his future wrestling partner!
Congratulations on your sweet little Avett! I am so honored to be able to watch your family grow! These boys are so lucky to have you two as parents and I'm so excited to see what's in store for your fun family! Enjoy those snuggles!
Time has flown by, once again! My nephew, Baby Garrett, is already a year old! He is full of personality and silliness and was a champ for all the costume changes his mother instigated! Enjoy this growing boy!
Now as anyone who has met Garrett will attest, he has a bit of a temper! I would be remiss if I didn't include a few of Garrett's *other side!
The great thing about coming to his aunt's house for a photo shoot is that we could easily stop for a lunch break!
After some PBJ, he was ready to grace us with more grins!
Happy first birthday Gare-bear!
Hudson is 9 months old - one of my favorite baby stages to photograph! Hudson showed his cool demeanor during his session just sitting nicely and taking it all in. Enjoy him and all the springtime cuteness!
I think the drool is just as cute as the grins! Enjoy these sweet baby moments while they last, Lauren! Thanks again for letting me play with your sweet boy!
I can't believe it was a whole year ago that my family got to meet baby Brooklyn! It has been a joy to watch this sweet and calm little girl grow this year and I can't wait to continue to watch her develop into her own little person! As usual, she was an angel for her first year session :)
Happy birthday precious girl!
After a harrowing first month of life, sweet handsome Pierce came by for his first photo shoot! He was ready to party but that just meant we got to enjoy those pretty blue eyes of his! Enjoy this little cutie!
Although paci shots are usually reserved for behind the scenes, sometimes I like to include them just to compare the size of the paci to the sweet baby face :)
This is one mama feeling grateful for the health and safety of her baby!
Congratulations you guys on your handsome little man!
A family very close to my heart has grown!! Baby Grayson was welcomed into the world just 10 days before I got to snuggle with him, and, I swear to you, that baby looked me in the eyes, SAW me, and grinned!! I have never seen a baby that young smile on purpose, but mom and dad confirmed that he grins at them too! So dang cute!!
Grayson's two big sisters were with Grandma while I was there shooting, but I heard big praise from mom and dad about how they're handling the new addition. Their artwork in his nursery is a small outward sign of the sunshine he has brought to their lives!
He's just perfect and I'm so happy for you guys! I'm so excited to watch him grow. Now when can we get together again so I can enjoy being the recipient of one of those priceless grins again??
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!
