Nothing but a bunch of sweetness out of 13 day old Sadie today.  

She was just the best baby.  I loved how her mom said she had blueberry eyes.  It was true! Big blueberries!  So beautiful!

I am truly blessed by families that continue to use me as their little households grow into much bigger ones.

This big guy was pretty early, but is strong and healthy... and oh, so snuggly.

Baby Number 3 in this family and I have had the pleasure of photographing all three from their newest ages.

Love his big ol' chocolate brown eyes.  He was a sweet, happy baby.  Love those rolls!

Another gorgeous sneak peek!

I really do love to photograph newborn twins.  This sweet boy and girl team is sure to gang up on mommy for some cuddles.

They were such a dream!

Another gorgeous sneak peek coming your way!  We had so much fun laughing during this session.  Mom's laughter was contagious and most of the time I wasn't even sure what we were laughing about, but I was in a great mood the rest of the day.  This family's home will be filled with lots of giggles with this beautiful, sweet little girl.

This sweet little man came to visit me, along with mommy, daddy and big brother.  I ADORE his name and this hat.

This is one of my favorite poses.  I love the strength is shows.  The feeling of being protected by a father.

This gorgeous little thing refused to sleep!  But that's ok.  I outlasted her.  When we finally got her to sleep, there was no waking her up.  She needed her beauty sleep and beautiful she is, just like her mommy - who I might add had some stunning maternity images!

I am honored to capture the first images of this tiny and brave little thing.  She is about five months old, but such a wee little one.

This sweet little one visited me in the studio with mommy, daddy, grandma and grandpa.  Love this outfit that daddy, yes, daddy, knit for Christmas.  Mommy needs to give her Army Ranger husband some brownie points on this one.
