She takes your breath away doesn’t she?  I could have stared at this little beauty all day.

Emily was a great little sleeper at 8 days old and only peeked up at me a couple of times.  I am crossing my fingers that she gets her brother’s blue eyes.

Four months before Troy was born, I did big brother Jaxon’s newborn pictures.  It was fun to see him again.  He started out with dark hair too and look at him now!  I would guess Emily’s will stay dark but you never know.

Thank you M family for bringing your babies to me for their first photo shoots!

This little angel was such a sweetheart.  She slept like a dream and didn’t even open her sleepy little eyes to peek at me.  Her mom did a great job keeping her awake before the shoot (not an easy thing to do!) and it worked like a charm.  Harper was 8 days new at her first portrait shoot and she is rocking the camera already.  What a doll.

This beautiful little mini blanket and halo were made by my friend Oleysa.  See more of her work at:  Beezy Mom’s

Doesn’t she have pretty little lips?

Thank you to Heidi Jo for assisting me with this shoot.  Shots like this are only possible with an assistant.  🙂

Dad and Mom have a competition going between their alma maters.  Mom boasts ASU and Dad OSU.  Dad had to sneak in some spirit colors to ensure another OSU fan in the family.

Baby girl in Daddy’s arms…can’t get more precious then that.

Snuggling with mama is pretty great too though.  😉

And now the two are three and life changes forever.

 

Thanks D and N for bringing sweet Harper to me!  It was so nice to meet you!

Oh such beauty.   I admit.  My heart fluttered a bit when I saw the above shot.  These two together just melted my heart.

I am getting pretty excited to meet the little fella that will make this trio a foursome.  Could he possibly be as adorable as his big sister?   I love Ella.  I love this family picture and I give full credit to Ella for it.  That is not where I put her.  Like any small ball of energy, she had her own idea about where she should be seated.  When she cuddled mama’s leg like that, I was grinning ear to ear in approval.  MUCH better than my first idea.  Sometimes when I let toddlers go, they surprise me with what they come up with.  Never count the pint sized ones out.  Tori teaches me that every day.

Thinking she is going to be a great big sissy.  Lovin’ on brother already.

Pregnancy looks so good on N!    Beautiful, beautiful mama…

The first time I met Ella, she was about six months old.  I have grown quite attached to this munchkin and loved the time with her.  She was such a cuddle bug.  I really wanted to take her home with me.  She, and her sweet cousin Maddy are as precious as they come (Maddy was recently on the blog too for her 2 year shoot).

Had to try a silhouette with a toddler in the middle.  Sweet little addition.

I feel so fortunate to GET to spend time with this sweet family again soon.  I have had the awesome opportunity to get to know and work with several family members (C’s sister and family and N’s sister and family) and I love the whole lot of them.  See you soon C and N!  Can’t wait!
