Baby L pt. deux

We lost baby L to sleepy town at his 3 month photo session so i went back for a visit when he was in better spirits and his eyelids weren't so heavy.  His momma had the cutest hat and i'm a sucker for cute hats :)

baby drool is a natural part of life to be enjoyed, and photographed in all of it's slimy glory...


To stop clicking that thing in my face....

Little Mr. L is growing up

Something I love about photographing babies, is when I get the chance to photograph them as they grow.  I've watched my own children grow up and it all happens so quickly, but when you only see a child once every 3 months or so, it's amazing how much they change.  The last time i spent time with Mr L he was just home from the hospital.  He slept, and ate, and cried some, but not much most newborns do.  Well now he's 3 months old and he coos and smiles and interacts with his parents.  There may still be some crying...but hey...he's still a baby :).  Thank you for letting me capture some family moments of you guys in your new home.  The weather outside was a little less than inviting for many outdoor photos, but i love capturing photos in the intimate, comfortable, home setting as well.

it's too bad they can't always be all happy and smiles  ;)
Merry Christmas!!!

My little boy

My son is a nutjob.  He is absolutely the most crazy, sweet, high maintenance, fireball of boyhood i've ever seen.  He breaks your heart with his tears, and makes you smile with his belly laughs.  He smiles with his whole face...if he's smiling his eyes are squinted shut and it's the cutest thing in the world.  In the middle of a play session, he'll stop for hug breaks.  His favorite movie is Shrek 2.  If he is fussy and I put in Shrek 2....the world is at peace again.  He'll stand 1 foot away from the tv screen and stare.  He bounces to the music and smiles with his whole face. He also is into anything and everything that he's not supposed to be into, and he has no idea what the word NO means.  His vocabulary is DAH.  It means, i need juice, i need milk, i'm tired, i'm hungry, get that, hold me, go away, play with me, my teeth hurt, i'm done, dad, and mom.  I love my baby boy...

A 'new' family

This past weekend I had the honor of doing some photos for a 'new' family, in a way.  Our pastor and his wife have recently added two teenage girls to their family.  I haven't had the chance to get to know them much yet but they seem like two great girls who are a lot of fun!  They are twins, but their personalities are quite different indeed. :)  Since their family is newly evolved, it was time for some new family portraits!

I Heart Faces- Autumn Splendor

This week's challenge is Autumn Splendor.  I've had so many great chances to catch Autumn splendor this year and i have loved every minute of it.  If I had to pick a favorite though....this is it...Most people think of the falling leaves of Autumn, which are gorgeous as well, but let's not forget those bright colors of harvest time!

number 4 is on the way...

I spent last Saturday with a great friend of mine and her growing family.  Mrs. Jami is going on her 4th gorgeous baby.  We already have Mr. A, Miss E, Miss I, and is Mr. O.  I'm not sure what "U" will be ;)  I joke around that she has 14 kids or something, but really, all of her kids are great and she is a great momma to them.  They can drive her a little crazy, but really....isn't that a kids job?  So we anticipate Mr O's arrival and can't wait to see if he looks EXACTLY like your other 3 newborns, lol.

and you're about to hate me...but we love your crazy goofy family :)

Miss E's Senior Session

I got to meet up with a great girl and her mom this last weekend for a senior photo shoot. I had a great time with this 'older crowd' since I most frequently work with young children and newborns.  It was a nice change to have someone who I could just tell to do something, and they did...and made eye contact all the time :).  It was a lot of fun to photography you and I hope you enjoy the results of the day!
