Mr C Turns One!

I met Mr C and his family a couple months ago when I photographed him for Christmas. When his mom contacted me to do a cake smash shoot for his first birthday, it was a no brainer!  This little guy is so sweet!  His first encounter with me, he was Mr Serious but this time he was all smiles.  And once again, when it came down to the cake smash portion, he dove right in!  He was enjoying himself to the fullest and was quite the messy boy when he was finished. (Or should I say when we finished, I think he would have kept playing!)
I’m still in awe of his baby blues- I don’t think any photograph can truly capture the essence of his blues and how blue they are!  But I’m sure you get the idea. Enjoy!!

Caleb's 1st Birthday

Mr N *24 days new*

I normally do not photograph newborns over the age of 14 days; however I made the exception when Mr N’s mother contacted me. He was born just around the holidays, and I know as well as anyone, how crazy the holidays could be especially with children! So I agreed and we scheduled him right away.  He came with his parents and big brother and boy oh boy, were these boys cute! His big brother had other ideas as to what he wanted to do, and they didn’t necessarily include his new little brother, but with a little coaxing, we were able to get them together! I know these boys are going to be so close and the best of friends as they grow older.
Mr N was sweet enough to finally fall asleep to get some wonderful sleeping shots, although he didn’t really want to give up his soother (even holding onto it tight!) he finally did.
Such a sweet family they were!

Miss A’s 1st Birthday

I have been friends with this little darling’s mother since we were 5 years old and our families lived just around the block. Growing up we were inseparable – I think we saw each other every single day!  Although I have my memories there may be a time that my brain has more difficulty retrieving them.    The memories I have are priceless, and the photographer in me, wishes I had more photos of us during all these years. Although we now live many many hours apart, we still make time to see each other at least once per year.  Although since little Miss A has been born, I’ve got to see her at least twice this year!  The most recent being at Christmastime.  Litte Miss came to see me to photograph her 1st cake smash, and since her birthday is just shortly after Christmas we also had to shoot a couple Christmas photos.  I was excited as I had recently won a gorgeous tutu and chunky necklace from Princess Dreams Tutus (if you haven’t seen her work, look her up, she is awesome!)
Miss A needed no prompting to dive right in to her cake, she was so excited and happy. It was awesome!

Miss B’s First Haircut

My youngest recently had her first haircut, she mainly needed it for her little bangs as you can tell she still doesn’t have the most hair! She was so excited to be able to sit in the “big girl chair” that she sees her older sister sit in. She loved it! And I love that I can capture these little moments for myself and my family. Just remember, Life Is In The Details.
