I photographed Miss A’s big sister 2 years ago and it is amazing how much these two look alike. I had to keep reminding myself not to call her by her big sisters name! Big sister was so sweet too- I ran into them at a restaurant a few weeks before the birth and I had a great time with Miss N! She was so sweet and I just wanted to scoop her up and squeeze her.
I went to highschool and was best friends with this little one’s dad and I remember when he and his wife began dating when we were still so young (actually, it was just recently 17 years ago!)- So they have officially been together more than half their lives. So to be able to capture these parts of their lives for them means the world to me. I can really say I was there in the beginning of their relationship, the beginning of their marriage, the beginning of their parenthood and I hope I continue getting to be there always!
The lashes on this sweetheart are incredible! And his pouty lips and kissable cheeks…I am sure they are kissed…A LOT! He was so good for his whole session that I just couldn’t stop photographing him! Which resulted in so many amazing photos that I had to edit them all. I was excited to see the items his parents brought for the session, especially since we’re a Detroit Tigers house! And I think they worked out just perfect 🙂
Woops! So with my own 2 older children home from school for the summer, along with the baby, it appears I’ve gotten a tad behind on my blogging! Well, time to make up for that!
This little guy was such a dream to photograph. He had the most perfect skin and I just loved his little smiles that he offered to me! It wasn’t too long later while I was attending a workshop on Introducing Solids to your baby that I ran into him and his mama again- only he was a touch bigger! 🙂
Miss E was one of only a handful of girls I had this year! And I absolutely fell in love with her. She was beyond amazing and her eyes and cheeks were too much for me to handle. I could have cuddled with her all day long – but I had work to do! And lucky me, she didn’t make me work too hard. I think you will be hardpressed to find a more amazing and beautiful baby. I just love her!
I was so excited to have Miss S in studio! It was the year of the boys this year and it was nice to be able to pull out some girly items! Such a small world; it just so happened that I had taken care of their dogs at the old veterinary clinic I had worked at for many years. Miss S was an absolute dream baby; so tiny and perfect and sleepy and cuddly and awesome (I could go on!). Mom and Dad really wanted to get a Candy Corn photo as it was just around Halloween. They brought the candy and an adorable little hat. When I asked if someone had made the hat for her, dad replied that he did! He learned to knit just so he could make things for his little girl (sigh. Is that not the cutest thing you have ever heard?)
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 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!
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?
I photographed Mr N’s big brother what feels like just a short time ago for his cake smash and here we are, another boy in the family (that makes three for mom, bless her heart!). Daddy and I went to high school together, in fact, he was my first new friend I made outside of my circle of grade school friends. I have some very wonderful, cherished memories in grade 9 that include Daddy!
Mr N was such a sweetie and I had so much fun snuggling him….and lucky me, he saved the peeing for his Auntie when I handed him over! Good thing he’s cute and she loves him so much she didn’t mind! He is such a beautiful babe, and his eyelashes were incredible. I couldn’t stop staring at them in every photo I brought up on my screen while I was editing. Congratulations to this wonderful family! 🙂
What a small world we live in! I was contacted by this sweet little man’s grandmother to book the session for her daughter. Little did I know her daughter happens to be my dental hygenist and THEN I find out she is also married to the best friend of my cousin! Actually Mama was one of the first people to know I was also pregnant as I had a dental appointment just 4 days after I found out myself, so I had to spill the beans! 🙂
I was so excited for them and she, in all her adorable sweetness, was just over the top excited when I told her we were expecting too. Baby C was so awesome, I just loved him! And I had to steal a couple nose rubs with him during his session, he was just so tiny and sweet. Daddy also brought along a few items to include and I think they turned out just awesome!
*(I also want to make it known that both the football and the train images are composites. This means that daddy’s hands never left the baby at any moment and it took multiple images to create this final one. Safety is extremely important to me and I will never compromise that!)* 🙂
