newborn baby dean

i photographed baby dean’s brother, harrison,  a few years ago and now to meet his new little brother was such an honor and pleasure. the best part of the whole deal, is that jay and andrea are our friends so we get to watch jack, harrison and new baby dean grow up. i cannot wait to see him again and snuggle with him. he was a wide awake little guy….he gave me maybe twenty minutes of eye closed time…oh what you can do in twenty minutes of quiet time says mom of four and photographer…{amen. } ♥

sophia and bridget

this family is the cutest and sweetest family. i absolutely fell in love with them….we had so much fun with lots of tickles, games, running, swinging, climbing etc. i could have talked to their mommy all day long…easily. the girls are just beautiful and lovely and when they both started climbing trees, it made me love them even more. i love a girl who is beautiful and all girl but can climb a tree…it reminds me of childhood and i love to watch the moments that make kids so refreshing and amazing to be around. they just see the world through the best set of eyes….the thing that stands out to me the most was the girls bond with each other. they were snuggly and loving and kissing each other without any requests. it is so obvious and genuine and makes me want a sister even more than i already do, which is a “gigantisaurous” amount as my son “the dinosaur man” would say…and that is “a wot”… {a lot}….:-)

Heather - GORGEOUS photos!

olivia and amelia

i have known this wonderful family for like seven years, since my cade and amelia were in diapers and to now see the beauties the girls  have become makes my heart so happy and makes me sad at the same time. sad in a sentimental, stop growing up so fast kinda way, but also in a very good way because they are so stunningly beautiful and sweet and genuine and seeing them interact and hang with their parents was beyond fun. we had a blast. in fact i laughed so much and talked so much some of my photos were really blurry because i was shaking so much and laughing, one of the “hazards” of photographing your friends that you love and can be yourself with…this family is so laid back and easy to be around and they fully trust me, which is so refreshing and awesome. i think if i told them to stand in a turnip patch because i had a vision one night, they would do it and we would laugh and i would probably delete them all but they would be there in the turnip patch….:-) every time we see each other, we just realize how easy it is to be friends and love one another, it is like no time has passed. these girls are growing up to be fantastic young ladies and they and their mommy have a big space in my heart. i would drop everything if they ever needed me and i simply adore them and love hugging them and kissing them and telling them how beautiful they are. y0u are in my heart baby girls….and yes, i will always see you as baby girls….God made you so lovely…..inside and out….

Jennifer Langley - Cutest kids ever! Precious

lillan turns one

those of you that have followed me over the last five years know that i am all about my little clients and how much i love to watch them grow up…..i get so excited to see them and see how much they have grown, check out their new little teeth, see how much their little feet have grown, and see all the new shenanigans they are up to…i also love seeing mommy and daddy and seeing them radiate when they talk about their little one and watch them all love on each other. well, to say i was excited to see lillian is an understatement. she is just beyond. everything about her…especially her cheeks, and her new little teeth…i just can’t even stand it…she is so precious….and the light in this session…oh the yummy light…lillian even waved bye bye in the last frame….♥
