Can I tell you something about this guy? It was COLD that day – not terribly cold but cold enough!

He never complained. He almost always had that giant smile on his face!!

I asked him to show me his teeth – he wasn’t wrong! I just meant SMILE with your teeth!

BROTHERS!!

Patti – THANK YOU for coming to Mansfield and braving the cold!!

I hope to see you all again soon!!

Patti messaged me hoping for a last minute session with her sweet family!

Turns out – I’ve taken their photos before – her son & his family!

That biggest little guy – I photographed him when he was turning ONE!

THAT SMILE!!

That littlest little guy – he’s BRAND NEW!!

My niece is only 3 months older than Fitzy – so I’ve never really known what it’s like to be an aunt without my own kids!

But – watching my sister with Fitzy – it’s THE BEST!! DO YOU SEE HER GIANT SMILE!!

I love those closed eyes!!

Stay tuned for the rest of their session – and an outfit change!!

Because the last three months have been hardly anything but rain – we decided to head outside when the sun came out – but it was STILL sprinkling!

GAH!!

OH MY WORD – I ADORE THAT SHOT!!

Back inside – just ate – cuddled up with momma – the best place to be when you’re a baby!

THAT FACE!!

THOSE EYES – yes little girl – YOU TOO CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!!

She was getting so sleepy – those eyes were so heavy!

Have you ever heard me say – THOS CHEEKS! I COULD JUST EAT THEM!!

This is PHOTOGRAPHIC evidence that I am NOT alone in this!!

Those sleepy sleepy eyes!!

SO MUCH EMOTION in one split second.

Casey & Steve – thank you SO MUCH for asking me to photograph your little family!

This session completely captured what I strive to give my clients – AN HOUR IN THE LIFE.

I hope to see you again SOON!

Casey messaged me on FACEBOOK and wondered if I had room to schedule a family session with their sweet baby girl! Thankfully – I had a spot that worked for them!

When I came in – she was fast asleep in daddy’s arms – the sweetest little thing!

THIS!! EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS!!

OH MY HEART! I JUST ADORE THOSE SHOTS!

PRECIOUS SOUL!!

I CAN’T. THOSE CHEEKS!! THAT LITTLE ROUND HEAD! SO BEAUTIFUL!

DO YOU SEE THAT! She’s got him under some magical spell!

I’ve seen LOTS of babies – and I’ve seen LOTS of fathers that ADORE their babies.

But this – this guy – he is seriously smitten with her. I’ve never seen a dad melt into a mushy pile like this dad.

CAN YOU BLAME HIM!?

Those moments right there – those moments that you don’t think to capture – but you will ALL TOO SOON FORGET!!

Tomorrow – the rest of their session – because HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO STOP TAKING PICTURES OF THAT SWEET THING!?

ELLA WHO?

I’ve been taking photos of Joy since she was a tween! TWEEN! I took her wedding photos and then the newborn photos of their baby girl – and then last year when she was ONE!

She messaged me in August and said she wanted to gift a newborn session to her friend – BEST GIFT EVER!!

I met with Kasey on a rainy Sunday afternoon – but the rain held off JUST enough for us!

THESE MOMENTS are my favorite!!

ELLA WHO?

I LOVE THAT SHOT!!

The weather managed to calm down just enough to get a few shots outside!

SO SWEET!!

Newborns are ALWAYS happiest in the arms of momma!!

Kasey – I hope you LOVE your photos! Joy – THANK YOU!! I hope to see you BOTH again soon!!

This little sweetie – she LOVES her baby brother!

EVERYONE loves the baby!

When she shushes him – he calms down. When she sings to him – he stops crying.

I LOVE THAT SHOT! Mom – my eye itches. BUT – I’m holding a baby – so … MOM TO THE RESCUE!

Those are the moments that would otherwise go unnoticed – easily forgotten. MY FAVORITE MOMENTS!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!! PERFECTION!

The little things!

The chicken things!

The tiny baby things.

ALL THE SWEET THINGS!

SARAH!! Thank you SO much for asking me to come photograph an hour in the life of your family!

I hope you love these images as much as I do!!

I met Sarah through the playgroup at the local YMCA & MOPS! She is a fellow geek & an amazing momma!

She asked me to come photograph her family after the arrival of their fourth child!

AN HOUR IN THE LIFE of their new family of SIX! YES YES!!

I ADORE THOSE SHOTS!!

BIG brother & littlest brother!

What life REALLY looks like as a momma of four kiddos! MULTI-TASKING CHAMPION!!

A VERY special delivery!!

Those brand new moments of life – when they fit in the crook of your arm like a missing puzzle piece!

This little life enters your world and you already forget what it was like before they were there – they must have ALWAYS been there.

Make sure to get a picture of THIS – fitting in the crook of your arm – because it doesn’t last for very long. They grow so very fast!!

That last shot – PERFECTION!!

ALL SNUGGLED UP in momma’s arms – the only place a newborn really wants to be!

I’ll show you the rest of their session tomorrow!!

WELCOMING BABY JACK

I love being part of the family with you WONDERFUL people!

Lauren & Dan asked me to photograph their pregnancy with their oldest YEARS ago – and I’ve been back for ALL the babies after that!

SISTERS – the middle two!

The oldest and the youngest – BROTHERS!!

EVERYONE wanted to hold the baby!

LOVE LOVE LOVE those shots!

That sweet girl – she is NOT the baby anymore!

LOOK AT THAT SWEET BOY – he only has eyes for his momma!

Those sweet babies – VERY RARELY do I get sleepy babies!!

Lauren & Dan – THANK YOU for asking me to capture ALL the moments over the years!!

Have I mentioned that I love taking your wedding photos? And then when you’re carrying a precious baby? And THEN when that baby is born?

I LOVE photographing all those moments for you!

I photographed Cassie & Erik’s wedding LAST June and their maternity session THIS June – and now – their sweet little boy!

I LOVE this perspective!

THAT SQUISHY FACE!! THE BEST!!

I’ve discovered that most newborns are happiest in the arms of their momma

Hello wedding rings – we meet again!

You see how relaxed he is? MILK COMA!!

MY FAVORITE!!

Cassie & Erik – thank you for asking me into your lives for the BIG moments!

WAITING ON BABY

You might recognize Cassie & Erik – they’re my cover models!

I took their wedding photos last June – one of my FAVORITE weddings thus far!

We scheduled our session for a Sunday evening in a gorgeous spot right around sunset. BUT. It rained – all day.

The rain stopped around 4 so we moved the session up to 5 and changed the location since the clouds were covering lots of our light!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

SWOON!! I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!

MY FAVORITE SHOTS!!

THAT one is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!

THIS BABY IS GOING TO BE SO GORGEOUS!!

GORGEOUS!!!

GORGEOUS!!

Cassie & Erik – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me back into your lives to photograph this BEAUTIFUL time!

I CANNOT WAIT to see you next month and meet your little boy!
