Baby Sofia, 5 days old

Miss Sophia surprised mommy & daddy and came a couple days early and boy is she a sweetheart. I could photograph newborns all day long and this one was just perfect for snuggling although being naked wasn't real high on her list. I cannot get over how much she looks like her daddy! I can't wait to photograph her again in a few month's time and see how she has changed.

Sneak Peek for Irma

I don't know if it's fair to call this a sneak peek. There are just so many images and I simply couldn't choose which to post! I spent most of my afternoon and into the evening with these two lovely ladies and thier mom yesterday. One is obviously a volleyball player and school mascot but also rides dirtbikes too. Her older sister is a member of the swim team and a high school senior. I can only imagine how much running around mom has to do on top of being a PE teacher herself. Wow. One of the best things about this sessions was watching these girls interact. They laugh, they kid and truly enjoy each other. I only hope that my girls have this kind of camaraderie when they are older too!

Sneak Peek for the T Family

I had a session with this lovely family this afternoon. Only five months ago they moved here from Canada, I can only imagine moving from that climate to this one in the heat of summer. They even brought their dog, Harley since he is a big part of the family too! It was great to meet your family today and enjoy your preview!

Another little cutie

I love brand new families! This very loved little girl came in with her mommy and daddy this morning so we could get some family and three month pictures. Her parents were so terrific and understanding given the repair workers we had been expecting for EIGHT months to fix a leak in the arch right above my studio finally turned up this morning. We ended up shooting around fallen sheet rock and insulation, but Miss Millie was unfazed! In a few weeks time, she will be back for a Christmas themed session and oh the possibilities!

Gotta love the petti pics!
I went a little more fall with the pumpkins this time around, but it is definitely the babies that make it so dern cute!

Sneak Peek for Lauren

Don't high school seniors just rock? As much as I adore shooting newborns and families, it is great to totally switch gears and shoot older "kids", most of whom are willing to do just about anything. Lauren is a volleyball player and photographing her was almost too easy. The only challenge for her were straight face poses, but when you have such a great smile there really aren't too many reasons not to show it off. Her mom and boyfriend came with her and I must say that Trey was a terrific reflector holder, arguably the best ever ;-).

Sneak Peek for the W Family

This lovely family came to see my this morning with their little one, Madison and she was just the sweetest little punkin! Most babies do not like to have their clothes changed repeatedly and she was no exception, but she got over it in the blink of an eye and was all smiles when the camera was on her. I love the story behind the dress she is wearing in the family picture, it is one that both mom and auntie wore when they were babies and Miss Madison wasn't going to be able to wear it much longer. It was so beautiful and well kept that you would think it was bought at a boutique last week not many years ago. Enjoy your preview, Melissa!

Sneak Peek for Angie

Oh my goodness, Miss Mia was already 2 weeks old, but unbelievably sweet and cuddly and big sister, Isabella was just a dream, so perfect! I really enjoyed having these two princesses in my studio this morning (and afternoon) and can't wait to see them again! Oh and I can't forget to give my assistant, Lola a big thank you! If you follow my personal blog, than you know who she is, but all my widdle ones just love her to pieces and she can guarantee a smile every time she says hello!

Christmas has arrived and won't these make spectacular cards? These pictures make digging in the attic last night absolutely worth it!
