Gavin and Mommy {portraits}

I got a phone call from one of my 2009 grooms a few months back asking me to do some portraits for his lovely wife’s first mothers day! Of course, I had to say yes! Tim and Karen had handsome Gavin join their family in July of 2010 (just a few weeks after Ben joined our family!) and has been the apple of his parents eye ever since. When I met him, it was clear why. He is just a delight! I had such a lovely afternoon photographing this darling baby and his lovely mother.

We wanted to take some pictures around their neighborhood, and as we gathered up everything we kept hearing sirens. Well, that was because there was a fire…. apparently a pretty big one… just down the street. And then it ended up making a pretty fun picture. :)

Thank you to Gavin and Karen for being such lovely subjects, and to Tim for being such a thoughtful husband and dad. Have a peek at the SLIDESHOW HERE or below and see lots of Gavin being 100% adorable.

    Love this album! Great photos! Do you do belly portraits? I’m a few months from the big belly but I’d like to get portraits of my husband and myself with my big belly eventually.


Celia {newborn portraits}

Beautiful baby Celia! How lucky am I to have photographed this little angel girl! I met her sweet parents last year when I photographed the RSVP Choir that they sing with. While we were waiting for all the choir members to arrive I fell in love with Sarah and Cory and their incredible personalities. They both have such a fabulous sense of humor, and were so obviously in love with each other. It was very exciting to get an email from Cory a few month later letting me know Sarah was pregnant and they wanted me to photograph their new addition when she arrived. I couldn’t wait! Sure enough their daughter is just as adorable as I thought she would be, and seems to already have her own great sense of humor. Apparently, the day before our shoot she slept like a CHAMP and was in the best mood ever! But on the day OF our shoot she slept for exactly 4 minutes the whole time I was there and her mood was not what I would call good. However, we managed to make some pretty fine images of this very fine family.

Isn’t she the cutest? Her parents sure do like her a lot… which is a good thing for sure. :) I remember those first few weeks when Lauren was a baby… she reshaped everything in just seconds and you can tell that Celia has carved her parents universe into a whole new, beautiful shape.

I love the look Sarah and Cory are exchanging in this next picture… I know that look… every new parent knows that look. :)

Cory, Sarah and Celia thank you so much for letting me come into your home and record this amazing time in the life of your family. I am so very happy for you, and can’t wait to watch Celia grow. Congratulations on one heck of a cute baby girl. Check out their SLIDESHOW HERE or below for more images of this beautiful family.

See that picture right there? That picture might be one of my favorites I’ve ever taken. I mean one of the cutest babies of all time and reflected in her eye are her older siblings who happen to love her very much. I love it! And I love Bailey! And well, the rest of her family is pretty high on my list as well. Bailey is a little surprise that joined my friend Jessica’s family in January. She is pretty perfect, and VERY adored.

Since her siblings were around too, we decided to have them join in on the fun. As always, Maddy and Isaac made it look easy to be so darn good looking.

Even Bailey’s new cousin Tabitha and her mom got in on a shot or two.

Thanks Bailey for being the most ZEN baby ever! Even when I laid you in grass and you were being attacked by bugs you maintained total composure. I adore you. And Jess, David, Maddy and Issac thanks for being great subjects and big helpers. I love you guys! Enjoy more of this cute in her SLIDESHOW HERE or below.

Lukas Jaxson {9 Month Portraits}

Lukas! I love this kid. I can’t believe he is 9 months old already, and more than that I can’t believe he is WALKING! Apparently the other night he pushed a full cart around Costco. I AM NOT KIDDING! He has reached the “Mom, I DO IT!” stage earlier than most, proving once again that Luke is nothing short of advanced. He also loves the pool so his mom and dad thought pictures at the pool would be top notch, and you know what… I agree!

Seriously! Couldn’t you just put him in a bowl, pour some milk over him and EAT HIM UP?!?! He is so cute it hurts. Lukas… I’m so glad your mommy and daddy let ME take your pictures. Enjoy lots more Lukas in his SLIDESHOW HERE or in the box below.
