“heaven knows that it’s a crazy ride
it’s never perfect all the time
it’ll pull you down and send you flying
so baby, hold on tight on this crazy ride.”
– Michelle Branch
It took miss Brooke all of 2 minutes to warm up, and then she gave me THESE gorgeous smiles the whole rest of the session! :) I’m absolutely smitten with her gorgeous, crazy curls! her little bear made an appearance in a good number of photos, and I really love that! it’s completely the stage she’s in right now, it went everywhere with her, and got those big laughs from her, so i thought it was completely appropriate to include it in some of the photos :) love this one of Lindsey and her boy :) another one of my favorites :) this sweet boy slept almost the entire session! thanks Jonah! :) love this one! kisses for baby brother :) gah! my favorite! Mr. Jonah was showing off his muscles, and apparently he was pretty happy about it! and i’ll end with one more favorite :) Thanks again for having me over for the morning! Can’t wait to see you all again! Happy Tuesday :)

“Her laughter fills my soul
and when I hold her I don’t want to let go
when it comes to her I can’t get enough”
– Andy Griggs
Goodness gracious I could photograph 9 month old babies ALL. YEAR. LONG. and never ever get tired of this adorable, drooley, precious age! Miss Isla came over right on her 9 month birthday for some updated portraits, and reminded me for the umpteenth time why this is my favorite age to photograph :) look at those little teeth! love those gummy grins :) aaaand the drool :) this age comes with LOTS of baby drool! between her mama’s bracelets and her daddy’s button on his sweater, she didn’t know which one seemed more delicious! such beautiful ladies! one of my faaaavorites :)look at Isla’s perfect little lips! she’s ready to decorate! Thanks again for spending your morning with me! It was a pleasure to meet you all! :) Happy Friday!

“Sweet dreams til sunbeams find you
sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
but in your dreams whatever they be
dream a little dream of me.”
– Ella Fitzgerald
This handsome little man was apparently having some GREAT dreams during his session :) he was all smiles! check out those dimples! too cute! how sweet is Aidan’s bassinet? he looks so tiny in it.. for now anyway! :) Aidan’s grandma made that quilt hanging on the wall behind him! and i’m so glad we were able to work it into his newborn photos :) quite possibly the biggest newborn smile I’ve ever seen! :)Colleen, thanks again for welcoming me into your home and sharing your sweet boy with me! Hope to see you all again soon!

– E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web What do you do when your session gets rained out? you improvise! I don’t think I could love these photos any more even if they were taken on the most gorgeous sunny afternoon. There’s something SO special to me about being able to photograph a family in their home that I will never get tired of! We were even able to put the finishing touches on their christmas tree! Lily is usually the Candyland champ, but this time Dave lucked out and made it to the candy castle before either of his girls ;) one of my favorites :) safe to say Lily is going to be the BEST big sister! I know these next two might be a little different than my usual bright style, but I love them just as much! Does your cat let you use it as a pillow? no? just Lily’s? :) and i’ll end with one more favorite! Can’t wait to see you again in just a few weeks for newborn portraits! :) Happy Monday!

“When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.”
-J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan Miss Journey came over this past weekend for her first official photo shoot, just in time for christmas cards! :) …. this one just might be my favorite ;) i’m pretty sure she was just yawning, but holy cow it makes me laugh every time! :) she was so mesmerized by the christmas tree and all the lights! sweet girl working on learning to love tummy time.. it’s not easy to hold your head up when you’re only 2 months old! LOVE these next two of Shona with her best girl! gotta love her little ruffle butt!
Happy Thursday! :)
