newborn to one


Here is another baby turning ONE that I last saw as a newborn. I’m so jealous of mommy…we got so many great shots of them together (something I wish I had when my boys were babies).
B’s sparkling blue eyes lit up even more when he would spy something he wanted….like a small American flag in a planter or my “toy” I use for getting attention. His little “toddling” walk will soon be replaced with a run in no time mom.

Very Beautiful!!!

What an incredibly sweet boy and an absolutely gorgeous session. I loved each and every photo, Raye!

holy smokes! these are amazing! ever picture is 100% perfection!!!

These make me smile. Such lovely work.

I cannot tell you how PERFECT this entire session was. How on earth did Mom choose? I sure hope she ordered many large for her home AND purchased an album if you have them!

In between the showers last week, I got to have a session with the fab Miss N. She rocked a scarf I had picked out just for our session and tried out a new location for me as you can see from the bottom images. Little girlfriend is growing up so big and I bet she starts walking soon even though she doesn’t turn the big ONE until July.

Raye, these are so great! Terrific job capturing her personality. She is a doll!


Awesome as always! Love how N is showing off her teeth!


Adorable! She looks just like her Mom! Love the white dress!

for all the mothers out there

Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day! This post is dedicated especially to those mommies with boys. Lord knows all mommies need a special day for ourselves. :)

What can be better than one sweet 1 year old? Two sweet girls! I always get a kick out of seeing the personality differences between twins. One can be more outgoing than the other, one can be more laid back or giggle at anything, etc. This preview is a little overdue (as you can see we got to go outside, when it has been raining all week!) I had a difficult task of limiting the number of images for this peek :)

Happy Mother’s Day week!

A second congrats this month goes to the Knapp girls. I loved this session and when Tot Trends Weekly saw it, they did too. The online magazine just HAD to have it for their Mother’s Day issue.

Congratulations on both of the magazine covers! Both are beautiful images.

You are so right that we just HAD to have it, LOL. You have no idea how you made my day when you were able to turn it vertical! What an incredibly gorgeous mom and baby! Truly a work of art!
