  • Hannah :: 8 days April 21, 2016 / Baby's first year, Family, Newborns, photographyTheoria, Studio

    *************************

    Hannah’s momma contacted me back in November or December, I can’t remember which, for her baby that was due at the end of March.  We spoke on the phone, talked about details, and answered all of her questions.  After hanging up the phone I realized I was due to be on vacation just one week after her due date and was concerned about timing.  So I quickly prayed and asked God to line everything up so that I would be able to do the session in a timely manner but also be able to spend such needed quality time with my family.

    Time continued on and I continued to pray for timing, I needed to continue to pray because my doubt and fear would creep in slowly every once in a while.  March neared and so did the Hannah’s due date.  Mom reached 40 weeks and the last communication was that her doctor would let her go to 41 1/2 weeks.  Whew, ok, I can go on vacation and just photograph the baby when I return as she’ll still be in the “newborn window” and not too old.

    Well God has the perfect timing, as always, and the very next day Hannah was born!  I was able to photograph her and her family the day before we were scheduled to leave for vacation.  Praise God and all of His ways!

    Welcome to the world, precious one!

  • Raelynn Michelle :: 13 days March 14, 2016 / Baby's first year, Family, milestones, Newborns, Studio

    *************************

    I’ve known little Raelynn’s family for quite a few years now and have had the pleasure of getting to know them more and more throughout the years.  I was honored to be able to capture little Raelynn’s newborn photos after she had to spend some time in the NICU, due to having a knot in her cord and it wrapped around her neck during her delivery.  I am happy to say she is doing well now and was able to come visit me Saturday afternoon! 🙂  What a great baby she was too.  So pleased with her modeling!

  • Simon :: 4 month milestone March 7, 2016 / Baby's first year, Children, milestones, Studio

    *************************

    Simon, Simon, what can I say about you?  That I want to keep you?  That you are just too cute?  All of the above?

    I’ve known Simon’s family for just about three years now and when his momma said she was going to have a baby, I literally screamed out loud into my computer as I was reading the email.  Really!

    His momma booked his entire one year package with me and I was thrilled to capture him as a newborn, which didn’t turn out too shabby.  And his 4 month session wasn’t too bad either.  I mean, come on, how could it not turn out when you’re this cute????

    Here’s Simon as a newborn…And the rest is Simon at 4 months.  Simon the bunny, how awesome is that?

  • Vivienne :: one February 5, 2016 / Baby's first year, Children, milestones

    *************************

    Vivienne is ONE!  I had the privilege of photographing this beauty as a newborn and now again as a fresh ONE year old, and she didn’t really like me either time!  😀  We made it through though and I’m sure she’ll learn soon enough that I’m her friend!

    Until next time, Vivienne…I’m looking forward to our next adventure together!

  • Matthew Paul Jr. :: 10 days January 24, 2016 / Baby's first year, Children, Family, Newborns

    *************************

     

    I had the utmost privilege of photographing this family since the beginning, meaning I photographed mom & dad’s wedding back in November 2013, then I photographed their maternity photos in August, and now their first born son’s newborn photos!  I tell ya what, I love being able to document any family’s special days.  I love getting to be there as they grow with each other!  I just love my job!

    Meet Matthew Paul Jr, a squish that let me do about anything I wanted at his session.  I never even saw his eyes for three hours, he was a ROCKSTAR!

  • Nathan :: 9 days new January 22, 2016 / Baby's first year, Children, Newborns, Studio

    *************************

    Nathan was oh so anxious to arrive in this world.  He was due to arrive via c-section on December 30th, but little did mom & dad know that he had other plans.  Little Nathan decided to join his big sister, Naomi, on December 19th!

    He came to see me a mere 9 days later for his newborn session.  He did wonderfully and I really wanted to keep him!  Mom & dad weren’t sure about that, so alas, I had to return him.

    Oh man, I have a confession to make, it’s been almost 5 months since my last blog post!  I can’t believe it’s been that long, however, busy season came and I couldn’t fit it all in.  Now that busy season, while not over yet, is coming to a close, I have some time to blog.

    First up it’s going to be a newborn that is not a “normal” newborn for me.  This particular newborn was a few weeks older than I normally like, for sleepiness and squishy-ness (is that even a word?).  And this particular newborn kept running away from me, which I tell you doesn’t happen!

    Meet Piper, a 7 week old French Bulldog/Pug mix, a “Mix-A-Frug”.

    I hope you enjoy looking at her as much as I do!

    ****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

    And just as fast as a finger snaps, Sylvie turns one!  Little miss Sylvie is such a treat to see and I got to see her every three months during her year long program of photos.  I will be sad to not see her and her growing personality quite as often.

    Some of you may remember this little cutie…

    …Well, she turned into this little cutie!

    …and to celebrate her first birthday we had to do a cake smash!  Although Sylvie was not too much of a fan.  She apparently wasn’t all too hungry that morning.  🙂
