MAKENNA and her mommy

I am backtracking so much today. And here I am the next day adding the text. My little sweetheart walked into the door before I finished.

The first image of Makenna is my favorite close-up from this session. I have so many faves that I can't say my fave from the whole session. Makenna was that fun age this summer when I photographed her.

Here she is with her proud mommy.
My WORDLESS WEDNESDAY image from yesterday...

Playing with mommy...


Close-up fave is beautiful in color too...

So difficult to crawl in a tutu. Right, Makenna?

Makenna and her daddy's dog tags.

and why not?
Have I mentioned that I love tutus?

How do you like the new business card that I created with one of Makenna's images?
That's it for now. I have to photograph another newborn in a bit.


Luke (almost one-year old)

Isn't he handsome?

and happy?

Maybe a future little league star?

Little Mr. Blue Eyes...

And even more precious cropped tight in black and white...

Rub-a-dub-dub....Luke's in the tub!

Backtracking again: This session was photographed this summer. Since I am backtracking and trying to catch up, I wanted to post my faves from this session. I will soon have several sessions to post. Hopefully catching up is a real possiblity this time. [If I can stay well, I do have a really bad headache today.] I also want to remind you to click on the photo to see a higher quality image.

Layne just turned three back in the summer. But his mommy and I decided that the fall would be a better time to capture this milestone in portraits. I took this just a few days ago, last Saturday afternoon (the first official weekend of fall). I must admit it didn't feel too fall like, but it certainly felt much better than the middle of summer.
I have photographed him first as a newborn and several times since. It is so sweet to watch children grow up in photographs.
Isn't he a handsome little guy? I just love him!

Layne and his beauitful mommy...


I love this one. My images often post out of order...the last image in this post, I prompted him to hug and kiss his mommy (before this was taken), but what I love about this one so much is the fact that he just did it! So, so sweet! Kind of makes me miss mine being a little boy...sniff, sniff.

Serious...but for some reason, I just love this one too!

When I was sitting across the swing (doing my thing), I could not resist trying to capture this. Yeah, you know what I am talking about...THE EYELASHES!

Promped by Mrs. Jami...still a sweet one too!

I still have some to catch up (some backtracking). This was my last session and it since it was a change of pace from all the babies sessions, I couldn't resist working on these and sharing.

SNEAK: Newborn Baby Boy...

In the above image, Cullen is sporting my new prop: a Hand crocheted baby cocoon (aka a pod).
I love this close-up of his beautiful face.

He has an usual shade of hair...blondish with a red tint. He looks great in this green!

I've know this little guy's mommy for a while. Today was my first day to meet him. He was such a sweet newborn even if he preferred eating all morning long over having his portrait done!
I hope to post more later, but I couldn't resist showing off my mornings work!

SISTERS at Rosalie

Some general info on this session coming later. I just wanted to get a new post up since I finished editing it late last night.

What a resemblance!

Doesn't he have a sweet face?

And what a resemblance! This is Madison 2 and half years ago!

And this is Bryson's big sister, Madison, today!

Both babies were approximately 4 weeks old for their newborn session...a little older than the ideal newborn session age. Just the same, I think we captured some priceless images 2.5 years ago as well as today. I will try to post more of these later, but I couldn't resist giving a sneakpeak.

Something NEW to view: NEWBORN ELIJAH

I love Eli's strawberry blonde hair, such a unique trait for a newborn.

My favorite feature about a newborn is how they still curl up like before they were born.

This little guy slept so well, but I am pleased that I did get a least one nice image of him awake.

Such a boy-looking baby boy...
Okay, finally some new images. If you are looking for your portraits, just hang tight, I hope to get many finished next week.
