ISN’T HE DARLING!

This is my FAVORITE way to photograph – just a bystander – capturing life EXACTLY as it is!

Those little hands. Shadows. Legos. Childhood.

I cannot tell you how much FUN was had by this girl and that gift!

OH MY HEART!

Do you see his concentration on that ice cream!

Stephanie – spending time with you and your family is always LOVELY!

Thank you so much for asking me to come capture your little-big guy’s party!

WAITING ON BABY

My cousin Vanessa and her boyfriend Jake were waiting on their first baby – due around Valentine’s Day!

I LOVE THAT SHOT!

Isn’t she BEAUTIFUL! My little cousin. I was 16 when she was born. My sister and I babysat them ALL THE TIME. When I left for college – she was so tiny and it’s hard to imagine her as anything other than the chubby little toddler with the bouncy curls – asking us to spend over the night.

And NOW – NOW – she is having babies of her own. A baby that is 3 years younger than my baby!

I AM NOT PREPARED FOR HOW FAST TIME IS MOVING!

Stay tuned for their newborn session with their little baby GIRL!

Little *S* is ADORABLE!

This little guy turned ONE right after Christmas!

ADORABLE!

LOOK AT THAT SWEET LITTLE FACE!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for having me over to take pictures of your growing family! I LOVE YOU GUYS!

Paul & Jennifer were patiently – well not really SO patiently – waiting for their sweet little baby to make his appearance right after the New Year!

Stay tuned for their newborn session!!

Heather & Melvin typically come see me during mini-session season – but she suggested to have a full session – and maybe her kids would warm-up to me a little better!

ADORABLE!

It didn’t take too long for them to warm-up to me this time! We met on a pretty chilly morning – but they were troopers!

Isn’t she such a sweet thing!

Thank you so much for spending the morning with me! I can’t wait to see you THIS year – with a new baby in your arms!

I met Brittany when she was a bridesmaid in her friend’s wedding – the day after I found out I was pregnant with Fitzy in 2010! ALMOST 7 YEARS AGO! It doesn’t even seem possible! She’s since been married and has the CUTEST little girl!

They added another little sweetie to their family in October – and she asked me to come take newborn pictures!

Her husband was a year ahead of me in high school and I was in his brother Ryan’s class. My sister was in his sister Megan’s class! In fact – almost every time I contact Brittany I always type Megan first! And let me tell you – the *M* genes are STRONG!

Brittany is a mom-blogger – check out her website – Backroads and Binkies!

She’s also a LuLaRoe consultant!

DARLING!

OH MY HEART!

OH MY GOODNESS! Look at how her tiny little head fits right in her momma’s hands!

STRETCH!!

Those two might be my FAVORITES!

LOOK AT THAT SWEET FACE!

THOSE SHOTS! OH MY WORD!

I love lifestyle photography – SO MUCH!

SISTERS!

SO SWEET!

And then – just like that – she drifted off to sleep!

Those last shots – moments you forget about all too quickly when they’re grown – so special!

Brittany – thank you SO MUCH for asking me to give you memories of this tired and beautiful time in your life!

I can’t wait to see you NEXT MONTH already!

Lately my newborns have become family sessions – WONDERFUL!

Amanda saw the photographs I’ve taken for her friends over the years and scheduled a session for her family of four!

I LOVE those two shots!

OH MY WORD!

Isn’t he SO SWEET!

OH MY WORD! SHE IS SO DARLING!

Mothers and daughters. MELT MY HEART!

You know what I LOVE about newborn sessions. Sitting in a nursery – while a momma feeds her baby. And talking about the really really hard moments. And the really really lovely moments. And all the things in between.

And all too soon – because this sweet baby is close to 9 months old now – you forget how tiny they were. How they fit right in the crook under your neck.

Amanda – thank you so much for opening up your home and your heart to me!

Little *J* is now OVER 6 months old – but the GOOD thing about being behind on blogs – reminiscing!

And JUST wait until you see his SIX MONTH SESSION!

I’m so excited to watch your family grow!

I’ve taken photos for the Fitzsimmons family for quite a while! Chrissy messaged me and said that they wanted – NEEDED – an extended family session sooner rather than later.

GORGEOUS GIRLS!

HE IS SO ADORABLE!

All the grandchildren!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE those shots!

COUSINS!

Not long after the session – Chrissy’s dad passed away. They knew it was coming – but that doesn’t make it any easier.

I’m truly honored to have taken these photos. Thank you so much for asking me.

I’ve been taking pictures for Miranda and her brother Vaughn and their individual families for several years – but never all of them TOGETHER!

COUSINS!

It was COLD! And WINDY! And spitting rain off-and-on – so we came inside to warm up a little!

ISN’T HE SO SWEET!

You guys were awesome – it was FREEZING! But you stuck it out! I am so happy that you finally got family pictures TOGETHER!
