Valentines Photo Booth, 2017

Here they are folks! The sweet little Valentines that turned out for this year’s Valentines photo booth. Regardless of your feelings about Valentines Day, I guarantee these tiny faces will melt your heart. Enjoy!

H Family Portraits

Last weekend I met the H Family at Hermann Park for a morning family session. I knew that they have five children and that grandma and grandpa would also be joining us. Now, of course, the number of people was not a problem… but it did make me think that we would only end up with a few usable photos. More people means more variability, especially with so many children in the mix. But this family just defied all my expectations. Our shoot was fun and easy and left us with A LOT of sweet photos. Really a delightful morning. Thanks H Family!

Baby Barrett has arrived!

I’ve been in newborn heaven this month. Baby Barrett’s mama is an old friend and it was SO fun to see her doing her mommy thing. This family is precious ya’ll. Please make note of Barrett’s friends: his Terrible Towel (for mama’s team), his badger (for daddy’s team) and his turtle (a sweet gift from grandma). That’s what I call socialization 🙂  Enjoy the pics!

Welcome Baby Caroline!

Well it must be Fall because Sarah Sue is busy! First on the blog docket… sweet Baby Caroline. This little lady was just a delight, totally ready for her close-up. And big brother found time to join in between songs and games (swoon). L Family, thank you for allowing me into your home to hang out with your growing family!

K Family Mini Session

I could not love this family more: my beautiful friend, her beautiful kids, and this time we even had a bonus – their beautiful auntie! It’s just fun to see these five together. There’s something really special about the bond between siblings and it was fun to see, not only the kiddos’ interactions, but also the sisters. Thanks for your friendship, K Family. Can I be an honorary sister please? 😉

T Family Mini Session

Okay get ready for a barrage of mini session posts! We had so much fun on South Blvd last weekend. It is not easy for a kiddo to get comfortable and smiley in a short 20-minute session, but the T family boys were little pros. And I cannot get over those matching plaid shirts. Cuteness overload!

Baby G 1-Year Portraits

2 years ago, I had the honor of photographing this sweet baby girl. What a treat it was, then, to photograph her little brother who is turning 1! This shoot really could not have gone better. For one thing, his parents were ultra-prepared, from clothes to props to extra lighting in the nursery (a photographer’s dream!). On top of all that, Baby G just hammed it up for the full hour – smiling and laughing and playing with his airplanes. I could not have asked for a better little model. Take a look:
