I cannot believe it, but my little guy is about to be 3 months old! This is a hard age to photograph, and as most photographers will tell you...there is an anomaly when it comes to shooting your own kids....it is so hard! Anyway, I am in love with this little dude:) His big brother and sister love him lots too.

My first set of newborn twins and they were gorgeous! I had such a good time shooting them. I can only imagine how tired mom and dad have to be:) (One is wearing me out!)
They have a big sister who is equally cute, so I had to grab a couple of her too...

It was a hard day...

...not because it was hard shooting this little cutie (it wasn't). She is one of my favorite little clients and this is the second time I have had the opportunity to photograph her. (She is the baby with the beautiful eyes on my home page). The hard part was that just a minute or two after this shot, she leaned forward and the basket tipped...she walked away with a fat, bleeding lip. I wanted to cry with her. Thank goodness I got an update from mom that she is doing fine. I can only hope she won't remember this next time she comes in:) She was a pleasure to shoot and she is beautiful to boot! Hope you feel all better soon Miss H:)

Cute Dude...

This little guy is as cute as they come. I saw him as a newborn too...all these kiddos are growing up with the looks:)
People always ask me what to bring to sessions. I love texture and color, and any unique/cool pieces can be incorporated into the shots. Be creative...the sky is the limit:)

It seems like I have had nothing but babies lately, but I am not complaining...I love them. Here is another brand spankin' new one:) The monkey is watching over him because his dad calls him little monkey...how cute is that?

LIttle Miss A

It was so good to see Miss A again:) I photographed mom's maternity, her newborn, and now her one year pictures. She is an absolute doll. We gave her a full morning of photography, but we have some cute shots to show for it:) Thanks again to all the clients I am seeing for the second and third times...that is the best compliment!

I love to photograph them. The little wrinkles, the peely skin, even the little belly button stumps:) I love it all. They are so new and fresh and it is gone so fast. I always feel honored to capture these fleeting moments.

This was her then...

We have a winner...

Congratulations to all the the contestants...I love each and every picture that was in the contest. The winner is picture D and will be featured on my splash page just as soon as I can create it:) The winner of the drawing is Christina Utkov! I will be emailing you and sending out your certificate:) Thanks so much to everyone who voted and for all of the wonderful emails that I received...I am truly lucky to have such wonderful clients and adorable kids to photograph. Speaking of adorable kids, I have had the best time this month photographing a bunch of my newborns who are coming back for their second portraits. It is so fun to see how the little wrinkled newborns have turned into kiddos:) This little guy has gotten so big and full of energy...and how cute it he??? It is such a compliment to have clients return with their children...thank you!

Ok, well it was nap time:(
...And our plans aren't always the ones that the kiddos have in mind, so we just roll with the punches. We still got great shots of this little guy, so don't worry mom...we are good:)

One I had to share...

Ok, how cute is this? Just had to share it:)

My new site is up:)

I am still tweaking things a little bit, and I will of course be adding a splash page with a client image. Which image...will be up to you. The contest will be posted in the next couple of days, and then...let the voting begin. Until then...please visit my new site, and tell me what you think:)

The other contest I talked about...I have found the most AMAZING coffee table books. They far surpass anything else I have seen, and I am going to offer them. To kick the new product off, anyone who books in April, May, or June will be entered in a drawing to receive a free book designed by me:) This is a BIG value. The books will retail for $2500 and will have 30 pages...they are gorgeous 9x13 with metallic pages. Amazingly beautiful books. I will also offer these books at 30% off to anyone who books a session during that 3 month period.

Finally, I am baaaccckkkk. I did my first 2 sessions yesterday and it was so much fun. Here is a sneak peak for the moms:)
