Look what I was busy doing yesterday! I am so happy to have my recent and upcoming newborn sessions! This little guy is a little older, at 7 weeks, than I usually like to book for a newborn session but he was so good! The sweet little dumpling tried to fight off the sleep at first but thanks to a dedicated mommy keeping him awake all morning, he finally decided he had had enough and he might as well give into it;) Once he did, we grabbed as many sleepy shots as we could. He even let me put him in my tall basket with his head and leg hanging out! What a good boy;)

He is a lucky baby to have such a wonderful big brother too. What a doll! Loved spending time with him. He wanted me to hang around and watch some tv when we finished up! I just love that. Makes me so happy to make new little friends;)

Mom, have 25 unique friends or family members post a comment here (along with their name) and you will receive a 5×7 portrait of your choice on me. Thank you so much! Looking forward to seeing you and your family again.

Isn’t mom so beautiful!? And is that a hint of a smile I see?

The blanket is back by request! I don’t think I will ever tire of it;)

Welcome to the world, sweet little man C! He was 10 days old and so precious and so tiny and I fell in love with him. And although he wasn’t my sleepiest baby to photograph, he did a wonderful job.

The house was lovely – an older home, rich with character and beautiful old hardwood floors. I just LOVE old hardwoods in photographs. And I got a chance to use a few new blankets for this session that I have been itching to use. Mom was great to work with and even the new big brother and sister got in on the session.

This weekend I had the pleasure of working with Cassie Premo-Steele as my subject for one of my Women’s Sessions. Cassie has a wonderful spirit about her and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Christi did such a wonderful job on Cassie’s make-up too. She was beautiful and glowing – inside and out.

These portraits were taken at her home. As you can see, we made good use of the gorgeous flowering cherry in her backyard! I just love how they make blankets of pink on the ground.

Thank you, Cassie!
