Meet Little M.
A little background on this next session I am about to share. The S Family was the very first session I did after taking a two month break to stay home and help my husband heal. Leaving my family after being through such a traumatic experience left me feeling vulnerable. I did not have an ounce of confidence in me. I felt disconnected and scared walking in door. I had isolated myself so much in the two months that I felt what made my sessions so personal in the past, was not going to happen.
What I didn't know is that Elizabeth is best friends with a client I adore so she had known that my husband had just suffered from a brain aneurysm. After saying hello to her beautiful family I laid it on the line to Elizabeth. "I may be a little rough around the edges, and seem awkward, but I promise that I am here (mentally) and that we will have a wonderful session".
What happened next makes me realize again that people are brought together not by chance. Elizabeth had one of her best friends stop over whom shared a similar traumatic experience, and then Elizabeth shared a story of loss tied with courage. The stories are each their own, I will not share them. Yet, I will say that my feelings were validated. It was what starting opening the "me" back up. It helped me connect.
In the past six months since our session the amount of gratitude I have towards Elizabeth, her friend and her family is something I cannot define.
I am so proud of these images. The love each of them have for one another is easy to see. I hope you love them as much as I do....
I can share so many more.. so if you want to see them, head over to my Facebook page. :)
Thank you Elizabeth. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you Kevin for purchasing this session for Elizabeth..
And Thank you Libby for being friends with the kindest, most amazing people.
Leslie and Seth welcomed their beautiful baby girl into the world and I was lucky enough to capture her first few days home with Mom and Dad. When I arrived their little princess was sound asleep. Leslie went on to tell me how wonderful her new daughter is and how she only fusses when she is hungry or dirty.
She really was not kidding. Baby B was the perfect little girl. She slept the entire session and let me fuss with her the entire session, never once complaining!
Look at how comfy she looks all snuggled up in the basket..
And even more snuggled in Mom's arms..
How about how sweet she is in Dad's arms... (and look at that foot!!)
How happy is she in Mommy's and Daddy's arms?
I had the best time during the session. Leslie and Seth were so easy to talk to.. and I am grateful Leslie's brother Howard purchased the gift certificate from me so that I could photograph his little niece!
Thank you again Leslie and Seth, your little girl is beautiful! And Howard, thank you for trusting me with these precious images!

Kami and I have been friends for yeeearrrss. We used to work together and have a ton of laughs. She used to make me laugh making fun of me doing my knee slap when I laugh. And now that my youngest does the knee slap when he laughs it makes me think of her all the time because it really does look funny. LOL
Over the years we kept in touch through Facebook but it has been hard to get together because of well .. life. But when she contacted me to take photos of her new little daughter I was so excited. I get to see her and her older daughter and take newborn photos of their newest family member. WIN WIN!!
Baby J was such a good model. She slept, and then slept and then slept some more!
Look at the lip!
and doesn't she look so comfortable here?
Baby J's big sister is stunning! Look at how beautiful she is..
I love this photo of the two girls..
And I have to share one more of my favorites.. How cute is this little one?
Thank you so much Kami and Todd for allowing me to photograph your princesses!!

Before I jump right in and share with you the beautiful Princess K I have to preface the story. You see, Sharon is the Mom of my son's best friend. My son Donnie and her son R went to daycare together since they were itty bitty.
Even though they go to different elementary schools now, they are still best of friends. Well, when I found out Sharon (aka Princess K's mom) was pregnant I basically threatened her that i was taking photographs of her new baby. No, seriously, I would see her and would drill in her head 5-9 days after you give birth I will be at your house.
And you see, a little "I'm showing up at your house to photograph your kids" jedi mind trick worked because I was able to capture this:
Look at this face!!
Princess K fussed for a bit in the beginning but then she was pure sweetness!! See, I have pictures to prove is.. look at this adorable-ness!!
Look at how comfy she is here..
One more of big brother.. he was so, sooo sweet with her..
Thank you so much Sharon & Tim for allowing me to photograph your family. Princess K is beautiful and that R.. well you know we feel about him!! (love love!!)

Martha and Leigh are great friends with Erin and John.
Martha and Leigh decided to purchase a gift certificate for a newborn session for Erin and John back in May.
Erin and John were expecting their first child. A boy.
When I finally got to meet Erin and John after little man was born I got the feeling that stress is not a word in their vocabulary.
They were both so laid back.
You would think they were seasoned parents with how amazingly calm they were around their new little man.
I mean look at this nuzzle from Mom. So much peace and warmth in her face.
And look at those lips!!!
Here are a few more from the session that just makes my heart smile..
Can you just go awhhh with how snuggly he looks here? I don't share names on my blog because of safety issues, but if you could know his name you would squeal with how perfect it is..
As I do each post, please Please, PLEASE head over to my Facebook page to see more from this session.
Thank you Martha and Leigh for introducing me to Erin and John, and there sweet,sweet little man W.
And THANK you Erin and John for handing over little W to me to photograph without even blinking. He was is heavenly. Keep enjoying every moment!!
When Sweet little L's Dad reached out to me in March of this year for a newborn session his wife was only a few months pregnant.
They knew she was a little girl. (Her little name is perfection, trust me on this!!)
They knew she had a due date of July 1st.
Well Little L decided to come early. Seven weeks early to be exact.
Little L was born a fighter. She never needed any assistance. She just wanted to surprise her Mom and Dad.
When I first held little L, she was the tiniest baby to date. At nearly 4 weeks old she weighed 4 pounds 9 ounces - she was such a little peanut. My heart swelled just looking at her sweet little face.
I mean really, look at her sweet little face!!
Look at her in her parents arms.. Doesn't it just make you go.. AWHhhhhh..
Here are a few more of my favorites... :)
I want to thank, a HUGE thank you to Michelle and Ken for opening their home and allowing to photograph their sweet little girl. I still smile thinking how stinking cute she is..
Please, PLEASE head over to my Facebook page to see more from this session. There are some photos you have to see over there.. sooo adorable..
