It was hot, it was humid... but it was a beautiful session with a seriously gorgeous couple tonight.  The dress, OH, I loved the dress.  I can not wait to see their stunning little princess soon!

When one sister is moving away, what do you do?  You have a last minute, fun photoshoot!  It may be a while before these two sisters will be able to hang out again, but their love and affection for one another will definitely be their hearts, despite the distance.

Be still my heart.  I love having little girls with lots of pink in my studio.  Having 3 boys and a girl who thinks she's a boy kind of put a damper on how much pink I had in my house.  Check out this lovely little lady's first professional gig.  Hugs little one.  P.S.  Glad you got daddy and not me.  He'll know what I'm talking about.  ;) And, check out those gorgeous lashes!!

To say this little guy and his mommy are doted on by daddy is an understatement! Daddy's whole world is right here and he so loves his family.
