I was so beyond excited when Kelly told me the news that she was pregnant! Like, jump up and down and eek out loud kind of excited!! Kelly and I go way back to "Cub-Run Cubbies" days:-) -That was our elementary mascot and all of us can be found chanting "C-C-C-ub, R-R-R-un" whenever you have a group of us together! We were all a pretty tight niche group...

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!! 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

I must first warn you that there are a lot of pictures of this little cutie!  There were just way too many good ones and I couldn’t cut them any further.  I guess I just need to learn to not take so many pictures:-)  Maybe one day!  I had so much fun with this shoot and I got to do quite a bit of experimenting too so that comes with why there are so many:-)  This little one was quite the trooper with me moving her all around.  I had her awake and asleep and she was just perfect through it all!  You never know what you are going to get with a four DAY old!  Little missy has the cutest little features from her ears to her hands to her feet and her cute little dimple!  I just loved photographing every bit of little Miss Molly and especially her sleepy little smiles!  Not to mention her sweet little nursery and the little moments that happened in there!  And the wall art in this home fit these pictures and family perfectly! I can’t tell you how much I love these three…or maybe I should say four because I can’t forget Doug, the dog!  Thank you H family for letting me spend such a special time in your lives with you and letting me capture your little cutie!  I can’t wait to watch her grow!  I love you all!  Welcome to parenthood;-) read more

I can’t believe this sweet little girl is four months old now!  It seems like just the other day I was taking pictures of her when she was just about a month old!  Her Momma was so cute trying to keep her asleep but Miss K didn’t want to miss a thing!  That’s okay though…I think they turned out just perfect with her awake:-)  I got to see those beautiful brown eyes and see what a sweetheart this little one is!  And I can’t forget the parents…they are too much fun and so perfect together which can only equate to amazing parents!  And of course, the cutest and most well behaved dog ever!!  Thank you K family for allowing me to capture such a special time in your lives!  You have the sweetest little family! read more
