While I adore sleepy newborn photos, I also love the wide-eyed, startled look that newborns have when taking in the new world around them.  I mean, can you imagine seeing everything for the very first time?!?!  It’s so awesome to witness these incredible new little people trying to focus and understand all that is happening before their eyes for the first time.  The connections they make with their parents and other loved ones are particularly captivating.  It’s amazing how quickly the attachment is made…and it will never be broken!

The adorable fella below was filled with wide-eyed wonder during our session.  I love how alert he is!  We got some precious sleeping shots too, but I think his expressions are just fantastic!  I may be a bit biased, but I LOVE these shots!  (Such FABULOUS subjects!  Have I ever mentioned how much I love my clients?)  His sweet bond with his gorgeous parents is beyond beautiful.  He may be new here, but it looks like he’s fitting in perfectly!

It means so much to me to get to photograph families over the years.  They grow; they change; they increase in number.  It’s awesome to get to capture that!  This gorgeous little five year old girl and her family hold a special place in my heart.  I guess you could say we have some history as I’ve been photographing them since this beauty was just one year old!  As the years have gone by, she has even become a big sister to a brother and sister!  So very exciting!

This session was all about reveling in her, however.  Her vivacious spirit and energy are so lovely and contagious!  I can’t tell you how uplifting it was to spend part of the day hanging out with and photographing her!  So many things change in life when you’re five years old, but with this sweet girl’s awesome personality and outlook on life, she should have no problem adjusting to the world around her!  I look forward to (hopefully!) continuing to photograph this sweetheart over the years to come!

When things are strange, new or interesting, I often think of the line from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, when Alice exclaims, “Curiouser and curiouser!”  Seeing how fascinated and intrigued this adorable big sister is with her new little sister, that’s what I imagine she’s thinking.  (I mean, not the actual words in her head, of course, but her feelings regarding the newness and strangeness of it all.)  Not too many days before, this tiny human was just the idea of a “baby in Mamma’s tummy”; now she’s here and such a curious little being to her older sister (who’s still not much more than a baby herself).  I love photographing children as they discover the world around them!

It’s so adorable to see how siblings who are so close in age bond with each other.  (Of course, sibling bonding at any age is precious, but there’s just something so cute when they’re still both so young.)  Mom and Dad certainly seem to be bursting with pride over their two beautiful girls!  Such a sweet family!  I hope to have the privilege of continuing to photograph these lovely little girls as they grow and discover all the curious and wonderful things in life!

Is there anything sweeter than a sleeping newborn?!?!  Because they do sleep so much in the beginning, we usually get some awesome sleep shots (sometimes with those fabulous sleep smiles!), but it’s really up to each baby whether he or she is sleepy at session time.  Sure, they can be ever-so-slightly persuaded, but only so much.  I try to schedule accordingly, but with babies this new, there is no way to know if you’ll get those coveted nap shots.

Well, this precious new girl was a nap champion and so wonderful to photograph!  (Maybe it was the power of suggestion with the throw pillow commanding her to “nap”?  If only that were true and could work for toddlers!)  She stayed out of it as her gorgeous parents and big brother molded themselves around, cradled and cuddled her.  How perfect are they!?!?  This whole family is a photographer’s dream!  I love capturing families being so comfortable and loving with each other…these are the most beautiful moments in life!

It doesn’t matter how old children get, they will always be their mamma’s babies.  I absolutely love getting to photograph a mom with her children!  Whether those children are babies, toddlers, adolescents, teenagers or adults, you see the same love they have for their mom and that she has for them.  It’s such an incredible and beautiful connection that is truly like no other!

 These handsome boys and their lovely mamma are so much fun and so sweet!  You can tell there is never a dull moment with these rambunctious guys.  Mamma has her hands full, but they are filled with so much love!  When you have boys, there is a fine, sometimes indistinguishable, line between cuddling and wrestling!  Who needs to label it though, really?  Either way you look at it, it’s one way these growing fellas show their love for the woman they adore.  No one will ever take the place of their Mamma and she wouldn’t trade her boys for the world!
