I get all mushy when.....

...I photograph Mamas and their baby boys.  Takes me back to when Parker was a little chubby mover and shaker himself.  (His "chubby" days may be long gone, but he is still a mover and a shaker of course!)  Anyways, I loved this session.  Such a gorgeous little boy, and a very beautiful Mama indeed.  I'll let you see for yourself:


I am in love with this moment...... his sweet laugh and closed eyes.... cracks. me. up.

Can you believe Mom painted the giraffe herself??  And the monkey, and the bees, and the rest of the beautiful "jungle" that surrounded this little man.  

Such scrumptiousness... I love my job!

Resurfacing, remodeling + other random updates!

Yes, I'm still here!!  :)  I have finally resurfaced.  The busy Holiday Shooting Season is officially here, so the ol' blog has not gotten much love lately...  poor thing.  But that's about to change: I've got a ton of sessions lined up to "sneak peek" here, so stay tuned for upcoming posts.  SUCH fun I've been having lately!  I swear I have the best job ever (besides being a Mama, of course!) and I'm so blessed to be able to hang out with these fantastic families all the time. I'm also working on an exciting project that I'll be able to share with you soon!  It's been so much fun for me, and I can't wait to show the families involved!  I can't divulge details just yet but I'll be able to let the cat out of the bag here pretty soon.  ;)

And please pardon our dust.  My server is in the process of being upgraded, so if you notice anything funky happening with my website or blog, don't fret.  It'll be normal again soon!  Also, I seem to have been having some email trouble the past two weeks or so.... apparently some emails have gone missing and didn't bother to ask permission first.  So, if YOU have tried to email me, and are still waiting on a reply -- please email me again or just give me a call.  Chances are I've actually responded to your email, but it's gone down the Black Hole of Electronic Communication instead of to your Inbox.  ;)

Okay, enough chatter!!  I'm going back underground now to edit some more sessions.....  be back soon!


(Can you believe my little bean is this big?!  I can't!!)

rainey day!

I have photographed Rainey since she was in her Mama's tummy.  And my goodness, how this little darlin' has grown since I saw her last!! 

Rainey had a very special little "buddy" on the floor!  She snuggled the daylights out of this sweet lamb.


Reading to herself........  :)


Loooove this combo, snuggling in her reading chair with her Mommy.  And I adore creating these "peeking in" types of images!

One of my favorite little family shots....  I love that they're interacting so sweetly with just each other instead of looking at me.  (And can you tell that this baby is completely adored?!)  This is THE most "honest" family portraiture.  This is what it's all about.  And what I LOVE to capture!  It melts my heart. Every. Darn. Time.  :)  I would bet that this is the way they love on a typical Saturday morning.


Last but not least... her first ride on her new Radio Flyer!!

Aaaaand then it was naptime.  :)  But she was such a trooper for me.  A perfect angel.  Thanks so much guys, for such a fantastic morning.  I can't wait to show you the rest!!
