newborn lawson {six days new}

three words for you…i.am.smitten. i just fell in love with baby lawson, all six days of him. he was such a good baby and he is just beautiful, everything about him. i wish i could do all my newborn sessions at day six, because the babies are just the sweetest, sleepiest, posiest little nuggets. one of the many things i love about newborn sessions is the time i get to be with the baby and with the family. i really get a sense of who the family is and i so get my newborn fill with the sweet, sweet babies. i am a mom of four and i know how fast time really does fly with our children, and so i more than anyone, appreciate and know how special these fresh and new  moments are together as a family. welcoming baby into the world… is truly amazing. lawson sure is. now you all go eat some turkey…♥ so many things to be thankful for….

taylor and cheney

there are happy kiddos in the world…you know the kids that are happy anywhere and laugh and play. well, taylor and cheney are two of those. they are the sweetest, most beautiful, happy baby girls…we had a blast and i have to say, their family photos are some of my favorites because i really feel like they captured their essence as a family. the girls really have a sister bond, taylor even changed her little sister’s outfit all on her own, i thought that was amazing and sweet and reminded me of my kiddos. they love each other and it sure shows. lane said that she wanted to capture them being them and playing in their jeans and coats and i love the relaxed, laid back, comfortable feel of the session and it sure shows in the photos. we played in the leaves, we climbed trees, played piggy back, we ran…super fun. what a sweet, precious family. i loved every single second and i could just eat these girls up with a spoon. so lovely…in every way.

bobby & thompson

i have to say….my finger hurts {more figurative than literal}, my knees sord of hurt, my back hurts, my mind and the visual cues for photography get tired during these months when i am shooting my bum off….tons and tons and tons of photos, like “knuckle jam” or something…and then there they are…..you meet a family like brendan, laura, bobby and thompson. they are the fresh air, they are what it is all about. you just forget the “job” portion of your art and just absolutely fall in love with them. i know this happens when i start to edit and i get emotional looking through their photographs, i get teary eyed because i saw first hand the love they have for each other and to see it replicated on film, oh man…it gets me every time. i have to say, i am one lucky girl, my clients to me are what it is all about, and this family is no exception. they are wonderful, we had so much fun and they are so laid back and precious. when mommy and daddy are kind, happy, loving, caring people who are  focused on their kiddos…well, the kiddos feel it and become those attributes.  happy, precious kiddos. i loved every second with them…thompson and bobby surely ran away with my heart…i mean how could they not, when those two sets of blue eyes hit me…i was done..gone….melted….into one big puddle♥

newborn noelle sage {ten days new}

noelle just moved here….she came the warmest, most awesome way possible and this was in her momma’s tummy to charlotte via texas….and man am i so glad she did…for all the selfish kind of reasons. like i got to smell her new baby smell, and rub her velvety soft head, and kiss on her soft baby skin, and hear her coo and man i tell you she is something else, a pure angel.  you see noelle, her brother dane and her parents are just the sweetest, most precious family. there are times when literally it takes me like five minutes and i feel like we have known each other forever, like sit on the front porch drinking sweet tea forever. we clicked. natasha and i click momma wise, baby wise, decorating wise and also creative forces wise. she is absolutely stunning, gorgeous inside and out and she is super duper creative. she mentioned to me that she wanted to do our newborn session in pajamas and very lifestyle focused and boy we ran with that…same page y’all, yes we are. we had a blast and this is one of those sessions i am so proud of….proud to know them, proud to love on them, and proud to post these images into the memories of this sweet family. kind of proud my name is on them too…hee hee…love every one….like for reals…♥ hope you do too. oh and yes, the first three…it IS cotton…:-)
