I have been so anxious to share this session! I have seriously giggled out loud several time during the editing process. How can you not have some kind of wonderful reaction to these two beautiful little cupcakes I spent some time with not long ago? The girls were sweet and adorable, the parents were kind and helpful, and the house and everything in it was just fabulous. Truly, these rooms were just awesome and I adored photographing the baby in her room and both the girls in big sister’s room. The ages made it a little challenging – at 6 months and 2.5 years – and kept me on my toes. But I loved every second.

Mom and Dad, this is some of what we captured that day and I hope you love them! Ask your friends and family members to check out the post.

Vera Kruis: These are beautiful photos. Lovely family.

Wow. We have had a pretty crazy April. Or maybe it’s just me. I have had to postpone sessions 4 times due to weather! Thank heavens mother nature played nice this weekend so I wouldn’t have to push this baby photography session back. I scoped out this spot earlier in the week and couldn’t wait to try it out!

This mom and dad were just adorable. Oh my goodness! They were amazing to work with. They shared with me how they had been planning this session for a long time and how much thought they had put into what kind of photography they wanted. And they couldn’t have been better subjects. They played and were open to all suggestions and totally let themselves be in the moment. They trusted me to capture the fun and I loved every single second of it! Their baby daughter is adorable and reminded me of my own daughter at this age….so eager to be involved in new activities. I was happy to document this play time and I hope these images will allow her parents to relive the feelings of experiencing her wonder and curiosity and unabandoned joy as she grows older.

By the way….check out the awesome crown of honeysuckle mom is wearing. Yep! I made that on the fly! Actually, the sweet baby girl was supposed to wear it but what was I thinking! She was having none of that! Anyway, I think mom wore it so well. Isn’t she beautiful!

Mom and Dad, I know you are regular visitors to the blog (and I absolutely love that:), so I am sure you understand how all this works. But here is the 411 – just in case. This is a taste of what we captured that day and I hope you love them! Ask your friends and family members to check out the post.
