I just can't wait until after this family's gallery reveal on Sunday to share these images, so I'm totally cheating and sharing now! Miss Gabriella's nursery is elephant themed, so I purchased this adorable hat and lovey set for her session and I'm in love with how adorable they look with her! Sooo cute, and purple is definitely her color! LOVE!!!

The other week I traveled to this gorgeous family's home to photograph their newest addition, baby Cruz! He was a dream to photograph and look at all this adorable blonde hair! His nursery was equally adorable, decorated in gray, white, and teal with so many stuffed animals. Thank you McKelvey family for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives and I hope to work with you again in the future!

There is seriously nothing like holding your newborn baby in your arms for the first time. The feeling is so much more love than anyone could ever describe. I do this job not simply because I enjoy it, but because I want to give parents those memories every time they look at their newborn photos. I want them to remember that first hug, the way their newborn smelled, the way their baby fit so perfectly in their arms, and every tiny detail from their little lashes to their tiny toes. I hope every time mom and dad look at these pictures of baby Lydia throughout the years, that they are brought back to this special time and smile, heart full of wonderful memories.

Now, since I know this fabulous family has been patiently waiting for more pictures, without further ado, here is sweet little Lydia!
I am so excited to share with you some images from all the absolutely adorable and well-dressed kids I had in the studio last weekend for spring mini-sessions. I know the parents are anxiously awaiting their images, so I plan on getting galleries out tomorrow or Friday. But, for now, enjoy all the sneak peeks!
Everyone was anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby Luke, especially since he was born 8 days past his due date, but he was DEFINITELY worth the wait! Look at his chubby cheeks, that hair, and those perfect little fingers and toes!!! Even though editing is not my favorite thing to do, I enjoyed every minute of looking at this sweet face again and again. He was by far my sleepiest baby yet and once he finally let me un-clench his fists, he was a dream to pose. I feel very lucky that he is on my Watch Me Grow Plan so I can see this cutie pie two more times in his first year- once he can sit independently and for his first birthday cake smash. I know I say it all the time, but I seriously have the best job in the world! I love watching these little ones grow up and I love that I am able to capture these special memories for the parents.

It was so nice to have little miss Lily back in the studio this weekend for her sitter milestone session. She is definitely a mommy's girl and always takes a little while to warm up to me, but I don't mind because once she gives me that smile, it's golden! Plus, look at those adorable serious-face lips! No smiles needed for those! I am really excited to have her back again for her first birthday cake smash in July!!

I was honored when this little guy's mommy contacted me to do his newborn session. Both of our oldest boys are in the same preschool class together, so of course I was more than happy to snuggle the newest member of the family! I came to their home on Sunday morning when baby Nolan was 4 days old, and he was a dream! He is going to have so much fun growing up with his 2 older brothers, Louie and Ryder.

Beautiful Keira was the perfect little model when she came to visit me at 7 days old. I feel so blessed that I will get to photograph her again when she is able to sit and for her first birthday since she is on my Watch Me Grow Plan! Mom and Dad did not find out what they were having beforehand, so we didn't have specific colors planned. Once I knew it was a girl, I had a vision with mint, peach, and cream, and thankfully Keira's mommy approved! I think I got Keira's approval too with all these adorable smiles she gave me!
People always ask me if they need to bring anything for a session, and the answer is no. I have everything I need to make your session special. However, if you'd like to bring something of your own, maybe sentimental, just give me a head's up so I can figure out how to incorporate it ahead of time. People also frequently ask where I get some of my hats/headbands so they can purchase their own to keep, so I think I will start to list them with each session. White pearl headband, peach wrap and headband, and teddy hat from The Tiny Blessings Boutique, peach headband from Bonnetique, large peach flower/white headband from The Indy Cottage Prop Shop, and cream outfit from Cute as Can Be Props (look for the outfit again as it came as a set with a matching sitter outfit!).
