Fast Friends

I have loved photographing every baby that has come through my home. But there is something special about it being a family you already know and love. Watching these beautiful girls swoon over their new baby brother made my heart happy.
This wonderful family came into our lives last spring as our oldest prepared for preschool. I met the mother at an ice cream social and knew we needed to be friends, then my little guy met their oldest daughter on the playground during a summer "meet and greet" playdate and they have been running around together ever since. He proudly proclaims her to be his best friend at school and their love shows whenever we are all together. I look forward to watching their newest addition grow and embrace the love these sweet little girls have to offer him.

Golden Baby

Our session with sweet baby Xavier was amazing. It took a bit, but once we got him settled and comfy, he was golden. He just kept letting me change the blankets and backdrops and slept through the whole thing. I have put a lot of work into my craft in the last year - both the art and the technical, the photography and the business side. I am seeing the results in my sessions now - when I relax and allow myself to be confident - the babies relax with me and we are able to make great art together. Thank you to Xavi's family and to all of you who have been so supportive during this portfolio building time. I don't treat your trust lightly.
But enough from me, here is what you really came over to the blog adorable squishy eleven day old baby boy....

Growing, Growing, Growing...

I love my "Baby Plan" babies - photographing a baby from newborn through his or her first year is absolutely one of the most rewarding experiences ever! I just love it. This little princess lives down the street from me and she has totally captured my heart :) I love that I have already photographed her three times in her short little six months! And every time, what do I gush about, her EYES! They are just so amazing. Thanks for trusting me with Sweet Baby's E's first year of photographs - and so happy we are neighbors!
