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! read more

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:-) read more

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… read more

It is amazing what 6 months can do! Yet again, I had so much fun with this sweet little girl and her parents.

Not only one of the best parts about my job is getting to meet and photograph so many great people but also being able to photograph your friends. I had such a fun night, with some amazing light I might add, with one of my friends to capture the beautifulness of pregnancy! There is just something special about being a first mommy-to-be and I was so honored to capture such a special time. This session was even more fun and had me on my toes because the parents-to-be were not
