The Ultimate Challenge

Miss Savannah is way past the newborn photography stage, but mom was determined to document her beautiful family just as they are right now — and I’m so glad we did it!  It’s a bit more challenging when babies are at this stage because they aren’t as sleepy as a newborn, but they’re also not as sturdy as an older baby.  Big sister Abbey was GREAT and had this big glowing smile that could brighten any room.   We all worked as a team, and I think we captured something truly beautiful.

Up first – my VERY favorite!

Daddy and his girls – awwwwww!

And, believe it or not, Savannah fell asleep for a few minutes…… so we pretended she was a newborn! 😉

My Niece | Precious Ally

Okay so, just like how the cobbler’s children have no shoes; a photographer’s family has no portraits!  HA!  My sister in law had her sweet baby last month, and of course I had to take a million pictures of her.  As of today, poor Laurie has yet to receive any official “gallery” of images.   Don’t get me wrong, she has SEEN them on my computer and on facebook, AND she already has her beautiful birth announcements to send out.  So, here is a slew of images for her (and the rest of the family) to drool over until they get hard copies!  😉

It has been so amazing to see Scott & Laurie become the loving parents of an infant.  For years, Aunt Laurie has saved the day at our house – always willing to babysit and help with my kids.  I’m excited to spend time with Ally and return the favor with lots of sleepovers and fun times as our kids get to grow up together.  🙂

Baby Sloan

This was such a fun session.  Mom is a good friend of mine and I photographed Lindy when she was an itty bitty baby – and now she’s a BIG SISTER!  Oh how the time does fly!!  Baby Sloan slept the whole time, and barely made a peep – she was AWESOME!   The only downer about this post is that they will soon be moving to Dallas…. BOO!  🙁   I’m very sad.

Without further ado, meet the precious miss Sloan.

And, the adorable miss Lindy!  Check out how much she’s grown since our last session!!

Love this one on the cool sofa in my studio!  😉

I’m always a softy for the mommy-baby pictures.  I know how quickly they grow and there’s nothing quite as sweet as kissing the soft, peach-fuzz-covered, newborn head.  Yes, I’m jealous…. but just a little!

I had a wonderful newborn session with sweet Beckett and his parents.  It’s been a string of really wonderful newborns, so cooperative and sleepy!  Mom told me in advance that Beckett would have a cleft lip and palate when he’s born.  I’m so happy that these parents embrace the beauty and wonder that is their son and did not wait to do pictures after his surgeries.  His condition is very mild and, as Daddy said, it’s only cosmetic.  He is truly perfect in every way, and I got teary-eyed when holding him, just remembering when my Jake was so little.  It’s a time that slips away so quickly and the only thing you can do is enjoy it, treasure it, and capture it with a picture.

Without further ado, meet Mr. Beckett!

Proud Papa and Mama!  Dad is very into baseball and I love that he brought his glove to use in some pictures.

Can you see the little smile on Beckett’s face?  I swear he was grinning almost the whole time!  And beautiful mommy – she doesn’t look tired at all right??

After Beckett ate, he was WIDE awake.  Mom said he usually stays awake for a while so we just went ahead and did some more pictures.  Usually I do this pose when the babies are sleeping, but we gave it a try “awake” and I think it’s adorable!

Oh my goodness – miss Anna is one of my baby planners and she has changed so much since our newborn session back in December!  She was seriously one of the happiest babies I’ve ever met.  If we put her down and let her just sit on the floor she would giggle, smile,  and laugh at us – and it was even her nap time!  Of course, mom and dad are always smiling too, so I’m sure she gets her jolly demeanor from them.

I really love these first two images – especially the close up.  As a photographer I can guide people (or pose them) but when things happen naturally, those are always the best images in my opinion.  Dad was looking at mom, mom was looking at Anna and Anna was looking at me with that silly tongue – adorable!

See what I mean – joyful – even when we put her in the bucket!

It was getting HOT fast, so we went inside for a couple more tutu shots.

And since mom said she likes the “vintage” style images that I do – here’s a special one for her….  🙂
