Aniela {BRAND NEW}

This sweet little girl was a tad restless during our shoot, she never quite fell all the way asleep (hence why there are no prop shots-- safety first!).  But she was just so cute so I didn't mind!  And her big brother was equally as cute!  Such a sweet family!

Myles {BRAND NEW}

Myles was the first baby I've had to have come back another day because no matter what I did I couldn't get him comfy, happy, and asleep.  But when he came back a week later he was a perfect, happy little angel!  So glad his mommy didn't mind bringing him back, it was so worth it-- we go so many amazing photos of the handsome little guy!  Thanks again for being so patient and understanding Melissa!

Royal {BRAND NEW}

I absolutely loved my session with Royal.  Not only was he insanely gorgeous, with the perfect amount of squish and the best blonde faux-hawk I've ever seen-- but he was a perfect little sleeper too!  And his parents were equally awesome.  Such a sweet family.  The best part of my job is definitely meeting new amazing people.  :)

Evangeline {BRAND NEW}

There's been lots of babies in the studio lately (and still more to come!), this is definitely a busy time of year for newborns!  Evangeline came in for her session at 9 days new, and she did a wonderful job at modeling.  Isn't she just lovely?!

Bellina {BRAND NEW}

I got to photograph such a sweet little baby yesterday!  Isn't Bellina a beauty?!  I love how her photos turned out, some of my favorite images to date!  I am so grateful parents bring their tiny little babies to me; to let me cuddle them, and to create art with them as the centerpiece.  I seriously love my job so much!

Charlie {BRAND NEW}

Charlie here was definitely the most awake baby I've had in a loooong time!  LOL!  He just didn't think sleeping sounded like a good idea-- so I snapped pics in the few minutes I was able to get him to shut his eyes, and also snapped pics of him with his eyes open (which I don't usually do-- but he managed some great eye contact!).  I was so happy we were able to get him to sleep for some parent shots though, since those always seem to be my favorite! 

The Tozis {AWAITING BABY}

Meredith and Matt were the sweetest, most patient couple.  It was like 100 degrees the day of our shoot, and I made them walk all over the place.  LOL!  And to really throw me off... the area of the lake we were shooting at looked completely different from when I was there not even a week earlier... I'm talking there was all of a sudden no water anymore!  Crazy.  But we obviously made it work!  Can't wait to meet their little one!  Not too much longer!

The Beards {AWAITING BABY}

I asked my friend Melissa to let me photograph her in the water and luckily she said yes!  And even more lucky was that we photographed in this little corner of the lake that was absolutely beautiful-- because when I went back to the same location 6 days later it was totally gone!  The water had receded so far that this whole area was gone!  Like twilight zone or something.  So sad.  But super happy we were there when we were because these are some of my all time favorite maternity photos!  Thank you Melissa and Tim for being good sports and hanging out in the water with me!
