I love that name..and little Abby is such a cutie.  She just turned one and is a pretty amazing walker...and fast:)  She definitely kept us moving..and she's absolutely adorable. 

I just thought this one was so sweet.  As soon as the camera was away, she'd give these big huge smiles..but when the camera was out, she was super serious.  I love the way she's looking at her dad.  I think it's what I love most about photographing babies.  There's no fake smiles or emotions.  They are who they are...and they're perfect:)

Miss Lauren

I was so excited to have another opportunity to photography this adorable little girl.  She is so sweet!  She wasn't quite sitting up last time I saw her, but this time she could definitely get around:)  She kept me moving....And she loved the cheerios.  In fact, it was hard to find pictures without her eating them:)   Hope you like these first few, Sue.

The Marsh Family

My first big family shoot, and I loved it.  Such a great family and LOTS of kids..five under the age of 6, to be exact..Yikes:)  But it went great.  I'm getting ready to go on vacation, but I wanted to get a couple quick pics up before I leave.  So many group ones to choose from..I've got lots of editing ahead of me.

I'm also trying out a new vintage style for my blog.  Hence, the new frames and watermark.  But I think it's doing something a little strange to the size of my images, so I'm sorry if they're kind of small.  If they are, I'll be fixing that when I get back.

Okay..Had to switch out the family one.  Still having some technical difficulties with it, but wanted to get it up before John pulls me out the door:)

Wall Ideas

Need some ideas for your walls?  I always have trouble creating collages.  I end up with tons of holes in my wall and no pictures up because I get so frustrated that it never looks right.

Thanks to Amy Ling Photography, I now have some great ideas to work with, and I thought I'd share them with everyone...

New Website!

My website is finally up!  And although there's lots of details I still need to add, it's at least ready for clients.  My new pricing is up, and my July special is listed (which is the same as the June special.)

Thank you again to everyone who's allowed me to take pictures of your little ones.  You'll find their pics on my website, I'm sure:)  I hope to see them again as they get older.

More Rory & Samantha

Such pretty sisters:)
I have a full color version of this one, but just trying something a little different.  I loved their cute dresses and headbands.

Love This!

I had a great session today with two beautiful girls, Samantha and Rory.  As soon as a session ends, I always take a few minutes to load the pictures and check a few favorites, then come back later with a fresh eye to look at everything.  But after just a quick glance at the pictures today, I found my favorite of the session. 

Maybe it's because I have two girls at similar ages, but I just think they look so sweet.  This would be hanging in my girls' bedroom...and I think I may try this shot with my two girls.  More sneak peeks to come, Jeannette.  Just wanted to get this one up.

Sophia's Sneak Peek

This little girl was a dream.  I think she slept for a solid two hours and let us try just about everything.  We actually had to work at waking her up at the end.  I had so much fun.  Isn't she sweet...and so, so cute:)

I was amazed she let me get this pose:)

And I didn't think I got any smiles, so I was happy to find this little one while editing:)

Baby Ivy

This is sweet baby Ivy.  She was a such a great sleeper:)  Her mom got this adorable outfit, and we were trying to emulate a picture they used in the advertising for it.  I think we got pretty close.  She is so cute. 
And I really thought this shot was a total loss, but after a whole lot of photoshopping and some help from a really good photography friend (thanks, Michelle), I love it.  I have two different edited versions of this one, but this one is my favorite.
And if you saw this family, you'd see that they're all beautiful.  I haven't even started editing pics of her sister yet, but I couldn't resist this one.  The light was coming in over her back, and it just gave it a glow.  She is so stinkin' pretty:)

Baby Evan

I'm so glad I had the opportunity to photograph this adorable little guy:)  I think 7 months old is my new favorite age.  He was up for anything.  We got sitting up shots and bucket shots.  This rock has been my nemesis.  Not one baby has really liked it so far, but Evan did.  I think being able to sit up is the key to this prop working, but check him out... 
Then he rocked dad's tie:)  Such a cutie!
Things were going so well we decided to try this picture idea I've been wanting to try for a while.  More pics to come, Susy.  Thanks again:)

Booking Sessions

Just wanted to thank everyone who has helped me with my portfolio in these very early stages.  I really appreciate it.  My offer expires this weekend, and I'm working hard to get my official website up and running by that time.  Last week was a busy week, and I have lots of photos still to edit.  Because of this, I'm not scheduling any new sessions this week.  If you book an appointment, I will still honor the special, but I won't be doing any more actual photo shoots this week.  I am limiting it to only five more free sessions though.

Also, I just started a fan page on Facebook.  This is the link:

I would love if people became a fan or Liked it or whatever term Facebook is using these days for fan pages.  I'll be adding more pictures in the coming days.  If I've photographed you or your little one, feel free to tag yourself in the photo.  I will still be sending everyone links to full size, nonwatermarked images this week.  Thanks again:)

Okay..I Really Do Love the Little Girls:)

And I love when parents bring cute little accessories.  This is Lauren.  So pretty, and I love, love, love her tutu and adorable headband.  It was a little bit cold the morning of her session, but she did a great job.

A Boy! A Boy!...And More Beautiful Girls

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but my blog is filled with girls, and as much as I love all the cute girls, I've been dying to get some boys in the mix.  So here is Jack with his three beautiful sisters.  I just love this first picture.  I think it's so sweet.
And the whole group:)
Still working on the other individual shots, but wanted to get a few pics up tonight.
I hope they enjoyed their ice cream after the pictures.  I think they deserved it:)

Lily's Sneak Peek

I had a great time meeting Lily and her family yesterday.  Never did I think that barely three month old Lily would give me some sleeping shots.  Maybe that's why I've been so obsessed with them today.  She is just so sweet, and is that diaper cover not the cutest thing ever.  Much more to come, Leslie, but here's the few that I started with:)

Look at those cute toes:)

Sweet Baby Katie

I finally had an opportunity to do my first newborn, and I loved it.  This is baby Katie.  Isn't she beautiful!  Seriously, such a pretty baby.  And such a wonderful family. Thanks, Jenn & Donald, for the opportunity to photograph your sweet little girl.
