This adorable couple came to me after a dear friend of theirs got them a gift certificate for this session- how sweet is that!? What I got during this session was that Jim seems like a very quiet, reserved sort of man but I think he really is a silly, funny guy….perhaps even a little goofy?! But whatever type of man he is, one thing is for sure, he loves Ashley! You can see it in his smile when he looks at her. Awww. And Ashley, wow, what a beauty! I can only imagine how she will look on the day of her wedding! And should they ever have children, I hope they get her sweet dimple! 🙂
Congratulations! Wishing a lifetime of happiness and love to you both! ❤
I absolutely LOVED little Mr M’s wrinkles! He had such sweet “old man” wrinkles on his forehead and squishy ones on his back. His sweet little lips and nose were just begging to be kissed! (I refrained, but I bet his family doesn’t!) 🙂 A few times I saw his eyes as he peeked up at me as if to say “You still here?” but he was such a doll. It was so much fun to have another little baby to snuggle. I think it’s safe to say about 75% of my babies this year were boys! It has certainly been the year of the boy! ❤ But lucky me, I got the best ones! 🙂
This sweet, tiny little boy was just that: tiny and sweet! He was just a little 5lbs of wonderful love! He really loved staring at me initially ….and then off to dreamland he went and away we went! I even got him in some of my props I don’t get to use much, but his little bum fit just perfect! It was great catching up with Daddy since we went to high school together and loved meeting his wonderful wife and talking about babies with her! I love that what I love to do allows me to meet, or reconnect with all sorts of wonderful people. I am truly so lucky to be trusted to hold, handle and snuggle (and capture) all these amazing new little lives.
I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this beautiful family’s present & future. Considering I’ve been friends with this beautiful mother and bride to be for 10 years! (and such a small world that I have known dad for even longer!). I’ve watched her grow from a teenager into a confident, beautiful, wonderful woman, mother and now soon to be wife! Their beautiful daughter is probably one of the most adorable children you could ever have a full conversation with (and she wasn’t even 3 when we did this shoot!). Seriously, the stuff she comes up with! I am so excited and can’t wait to photograph their big day!
Mr A was a dream baby! 🙂 And it was so sweet to see him as I had photographed his sweet baby cousin just a couple weeks before! Both mom and dad are Chemists so they brought along their books which we had to include! And I love, love science! His sweet eyelashes were absolutely to die for. Every photo I edited I just couldn’t help but zoom in and stare at how awesome they were (many photos I didn’t even have to zoom in! They’re just so long!) And I could probably squish his big cheeks all day (although I bet he gets, and is going to continue getting, a lot of that!)
What a wonderful little family – congratulations on your amazing little boy!

Miss K had the most beautiful eyes! Her Gramma brought her to see me for her cake smash as a surprise for her mama and dada. How cute! I totally loved her cute 2 little teeth on the bottom every time she smiled- which I’m happy she did before the cake smash! Since when it came down to the cake smashing time, she just wasn’t as excited as the rest of us. She truly did not feel like getting herself messy! Good thing Gramma was there to help her out 🙂
These two beauties are my reason for everything I do. They, along with their little sister we are waiting to meet, are our world. They bring us laughter and joy. Tears and frustration. Happiness. Love.
Miss I – after two handsome boys finally a princess for mommy and daddy! I have to say that this little sweetheart looks exactly like her oldest brother! I have known this little ones mommy since she was just a little girl, she is the younger sister of a dear, dear friend of mine that I’ve had since we were in Kindergarten. I have watched her grow through grade school, highschool, marry her best friend (well, I got to make the wedding cake back when I owned a cake business!) and now photographing her princess. And what an angel she was! Which resulted in a ridiculous number of wonderful shots because she was just so good! And then her big brothers came in the studio and melt my heart, were the cutest things ever with their new baby sister. Congratulations to this wonderful family!
Talk about a wonderful family! Gosh. I just have the best job. I get to meet such amazing people, families and children! (and so cute too!)
Mr S was so enthralled with the sand and the grass that I had to work my toosh off to get him to give me a glance or two! I loved just watching him explore and feel new textures and see new things- it’s one of the best things about being a parent. Their inquisitive nature and wonder of all life really makes you sit and think about all the beauty around us that we take for granted and see right through. Our daily lives just consume us that we forget how much beauty and good there is in this world around us. This little guy certainly reminded me of that.
How gorgeous are they?!
Miss T was such a sweetheart! Which comes as no surprise since her parents are just about the nicest couple you could meet. I met them a while back when I photographed them for their maternity session and I just LOVED watching how loving and caring dad was about his beautiful wife and the look of excitement on both their faces when they spoke about their baby girl. Little Miss T was so soft and sweet and squishy and just the perfect picture of love with her mama and papa. Her beautiful little lips are just something I couldn’t stop staring at with every photo I went through – comes as no surprise because her family is just full of beautiful people! (inside and out!)
And to top it off, when her parents came to pick up their disc, they dropped off a present for me and my upcoming baby girl! Could they get any sweeter?
