Before all the snow is melted on the ground today, I thought I would leave you all with a little snowy gender reveal:-)

It may not be the most glamorous session as I was seriously getting blown away in the snow, not to mention the wet snow that was coming down 100 miles a minute in our faces and completely soaking us...

Remember the fun, emotional, balloon gender reveal that I shared here?  Well, their little one is here!

I can’t even begin to share how special this session was for me.  It was a first for me to do a newborn session in a hospital and I loved every single minute of it.  I was so welcomed by the entire staff and the nurses were so accommodating.  The intimacy of the NICU and the amount of love that filled this room is indescribable.  I felt like I was part of the family and got so wrapped up in the amazing moments of this new little family that I completely forgot where I was and what I was doing.  As a mother myself, it is incredible and one of the best parts about why I love what I do, to be able to capture the love and special moments like this.  The way a new Momma looks at her husband in a completely new incredible way when he becomes a Daddy,  the way new parents just stare at their little one and forget that there is anything else in the world, the way parents look at their precious new little one and can’t believe that they are theirs, and just the amount of love that fills a new family is truly such an indescribable feeling.  I get caught up in the moment all the time that it never fails for me to be teary-eyed behind that camera of mine.  I love these moments and they get me every time!

It is so hard to believe that this was last Spring.  I am throughly enjoying going back through old sessions that needed to be on the blog MONTHS ago but these warm weather pictures get me very excited for Spring!!  This little guy is now walking and talking and it is amazing how fast these little ones grow up on us!  He is seriously the happiest baby with an adorable smile and a funny personality!  Some of these faces that Kellan showed me just make me laugh and I absolutely LOVE them!  This session turned into two because we got a little rained out when we first attempted to catch a few family shots!  But luckily, when we tried again, the sun was shining, Kellan was all ready to go and gave me his best smiles and silly faces, especially with the help of some maracas and dog frisbees:-)  And the best part, we were able to get the whole family for a few shots…the pups included!  And can I just say, these are two of the most well behaved dogs you will ever meet!!  “C” Family, you all are so much fun and I am so glad we were able to get some “entire” family shots:-)

Happy Friday!  Although I have actually been in 75 degree and sunny weather all week, I know my hubby and everyone back at home and my old home up North weren’t so lucky.  So those of you that had 4 four days of rain and some topped off with snow, I thought I would share my sunshine with you that I get everyday!  Here’s a little sneak peek of my little cutie during a little Christmas shoot I attempted.  More to share from that shoot soon:-)

I had so much fun with this family!  One of the best parts about my job is that I get to meet new people and new families!  And sometimes even a smaller world when you discover that you know many of the same people!!  Always fun!!

Having a little one of my own, I always love seeing new little families and the sweet moments that new parents share with their new little bundle.  These new parents were no different!!  They were the sweetest with their sweet little Ally and so patient!  I think we all want newborns to be perfect and sleepy but sometimes they just want to be up and don’t know what they want.  These are the joys of parenthood and that’s when I think  it’s a great time to capture some of the best moments with the new Mommy and Daddy!!  There were just too many favorites from this session that I couldn’t narrow it down any further.  I just absolutely LOVED Miss Ally’s nursery…it is way too cute and I am in love with the tree decal that just makes the room feel like you’re in a magical place!  And not to mention the amazing light in their guest room and the amazing decorating and incredible work these new parents have put in to their home!  “W” family, your home is absolutely beautiful and I can not thank you enough for being so inviting and welcoming me into your home…and even letting me flip through your amazing wedding album!!  And for being so creative on your feet to see what we could use to document a “divided household”!  :-)  I can’t wait to watch Miss Ally grow…cherish every minute as they grow up way too quick!!

I can not tell you how much I love this sweet family!!  I was so honored to capture this special time in their lives with the arrival of their new baby girl!  I fell in love with them all the second I walked in the door!  And not to mention the cutest kiddo names ever!!  Levi and Carter!!  Love, Love, LOVE!!!  Not only was I able to get some beautiful images of Baby Carter being awake, taking a snooze, and even putting her on a HORSE SADDLE!!, but we were also able to capture a few pictures of Big Brother, Levi who had just turned 2!!  How fun that these siblings share the same birthday weekend???  Although Big Brother, Levi, was still not too sure about this new arrival of his baby sister, he did show me that adorable smile of his and even got close enough to his baby sister for a few family pictures:-)  Thank you so much “B” family for welcoming me into your home to capture such a special time in your lives!!!  I am so excited about capturing Carter’s milestones and watching her grow through the year!!!   You seriously make the cutest and sweetest babies:-)

I can’t believe that this was almost 8 months ago but it’s better late than never right?  I have so much fun with this family every time I see them!!  From their maternity session to their little Avery’s newborn session and to her 7 month old/Christmas family session that I did a couple weeks ago that I will be sharing after I know those cards go out for the year:-)   Miss Avery was quite possibly one of the best newborns I have ever had a session with.  She let me put her on books, in a book case, a basket, and am amazing “hammock” that was made for her, and she even let her Mommy put her in a bunny outfit and multiple “outfit” changes!  With being an Easter  baby, the bunny outfit fit right in:-)  And she even managed to have a special visit from Grandma & Grandpa.  Miss Avery, you are such a sweet little angel and I know your Mommy and Daddy couldn’t be any more in love with you!  So with further ado….meet Miss Avery…
