Ryleigh Sloane | The Newborn Shoot

May 2nd, 2014

Photographing a newborn is one of the sweetest, most wonderful things I get to do.  Photographing a precious friend’s beautiful new baby is even sweeter.  This is one lucky, blessed baby girl.  To have not one, but TWO beautiful big sisters, and a mama and daddy that are already wrapped around her little finger- heaven.  [...]

 

Photographing a newborn is one of the sweetest, most wonderful things I get to do.  Photographing a precious friend’s beautiful new baby is even sweeter.  This is one lucky, blessed baby girl.  To have not one, but TWO beautiful big sisters, and a mama and daddy that are already wrapped around her little finger- heaven.  :)   So overjoyed for this darling little family.  This was an all girl session for their daddy- his pictures are coming soon.  :)

Macklin Cooper | The Newborn Shoot

March 4th, 2014

This guy. Just seven days old, and such a charmer. Gorgeous thick hair, beautiful eyes, and at seven days old, that precious something that is just so quintessentially “newborn”. Not to mention that he is born into a wonderful, lovely, and loving family. His mom and dad are pretty great, and are doing amazing/hard/wonderful things [...]

 

This guy. Just seven days old, and such a charmer. Gorgeous thick hair, beautiful eyes, and at seven days old, that precious something that is just so quintessentially “newborn”. Not to mention that he is born into a wonderful, lovely, and loving family. His mom and dad are pretty great, and are doing amazing/hard/wonderful things to make this world a better place. Being a grad student and in the military with a newborn is not easy, and they are truly examples of all that is right with the world. It is always a humbling privilege to witness such great love, dedication, and sacrifice.

Annabelle Grace | The Newborn Shoot

January 17th, 2014

Precious little Annabelle Grace.  This little one melted. my. heart.  There is just nothing like a sweet little baby.  As if her precious little features aren’t enough to completely get me, when Daddy is a (very, very good) professional bull rider, and Mommy is a beautiful, creative southern belle, you get a lot of fantastic [...]

Beckett | One Year Cake Smash

September 10th, 2013

I cannot believe it has been a year since I did this little guy’s newborn photos. I just cannot. And, he didn’t turn out to be such a little guy either! This little love is breaking the charts in over the 100th percentile in height, and is pretty much the sweetest, most easy going little [...]

 

I cannot believe it has been a year since I did this little guy’s newborn photos. I just cannot. And, he didn’t turn out to be such a little guy either! This little love is breaking the charts in over the 100th percentile in height, and is pretty much the sweetest, most easy going little fella you can imagine. I just cannot get enough of him. He needed absolutely no prompting for this cake smash session.

Here he is plotting cake domination.

See? I told you. He is just too much.

So, without further ado, some more sweetness for your morning. =)

I truly love toddler shoots.

 

I know you don’t believe me.  Dreaded by parents and photographers alike, toddler shoots are best known for their obedience to Murphy’s Law.   If it can go wrong the day of the  shoot- it will.   You can be relatively certain that it will be the  one day your toddler does not take a nap, loses their favorite blanket/toy/pacifier, arrives at the shoot hungry, bruises their face, or generally falls victim to any number of toddler calamities resulting in most clients pulling up stressed to the maxed with a toddler mid meltdown.

All of this is completely true, but I LOVE toddler shoots.

Wanna know why?  Am I glutton for punishment?  Do I love seeing parents stressed out?

Nope!

 

Toddlers are genuine.

100% genuine.

 

 

This means that the storm won’t last forever.  They cannot help but begin to explore the world around  them, and given enough time, snacks, and hugs, they cannot help but see the sunshine again.  And, when they do, you will not find more precious, genuine, curious, loving and altogether adorable creatures.  I love those little faces.   I love watching the storms subside, the parents relax when they realize I am totally serious that all-toddlers-do-this-and-it-really-is-okay, and the little ones actually begin to have fun.

 

 

 

And,  I love it that their little arms barely stretch over they tops of their heads.

*melt*

I am beyond lucky to have been photographing this gorgeous little darling since birth!

I cannot even begin to tell you how neat it is to watch her grow.

She is just so stinking precious!!!

Thunderous Joy: A belly shoot…

September 9th, 2012

The sky looked ominous but beautiful as we began what turned out to be the fastest little belly shoot ever.  Rainstorms are not usually a photographer’s friend, but there was something fitting about the sky- pregnant with storm- fluffy, dark clouds making mountains over us, the air still with expectation.  Something about the bright life [...]

 

The sky looked ominous but beautiful as we began what turned out to be the fastest little belly shoot ever.  Rainstorms are not usually a photographer’s friend, but there was something fitting about the sky- pregnant with storm- fluffy, dark clouds making mountains over us, the air still with expectation.  Something about the bright life and joy of this little family juxtaposed against the deep rumbles and dark sky reminded me of the depths of hope and the miracle of life.  As the fields and birds waited in perfect stillness for the rain, they celebrated the joy waiting for him- their precious son.

Little Miss Aralyn

August 1st, 2012

I cannot believe this lovely little one is two!!  It truly seems like yesterday that I photographed her newborn pictures.  It is such a joy to see her today.  She is brilliant and beautiful and brave and precocious  and all things lovely and wonderful.  She is simply… a JOY.
