Teeny Tiny Lady

I had my youngest newborn ever today - 8 days old! Baby R was so tiny and sweet. She was very alert much to her parents' surprise! We did manage to get her to catnap a few times and got some really precious shots. Mom and Dad, I hope you get a good night's sleep tonight! Enjoy your preview!

First Cake Smash Session!!!!!

Today, I got to do my first ever cake smash session. It was so much fun, and if I may say so myself, it was a SMASH!! Hah, hah, hah!!! I photographed DJ when he was a teeny, tiny baby of just 3 months. He has definitely grown, but those baby blues haven't changed. DJ was so cute. He reminded me of Brooklyn because he wasn't too sure about getting dirty! DJ will be one in a few weeks, and I can't wait to do his first birthday pictures! Now, I'm off to put together a storyboard from today's images!

The next big thing . . .

My very good friend, Neesy, (as Brooklyn likes to call her) is an awesome singer. She is in the process of cutting songs for an album and needed some good headshots for her website and possibly her album. I think these turned out so beautiful. You look good, gurl!!!

My personal favorite . . .

Beach pics!

Last night, we gathered everyone up and made the trip down to the beach for some family pics and then a photo shoot with Brooklyn. I think it went really well. The guys tried to give Belinda and me a hard time, but we gave it right back to them!! Brooklyn actually did really good. We only had to bribe her with: swimming in the pool at night and a Princess umbrella she saw at Claires. :)

Brooklyn and her DudDud looking at the waves.

Ok, so sometimes this is as good as you can get with a 3 year old and a 4 month old. When I have more time, I think I'll try to swap Brooklyn's head with one where she is smiling too.
Jake - after the photo shoot!

All I can say here is WOW! I think this is my favorite. I hear a huge canvas calling my name!!!

I really like this one too. I did a vintage feel on it, and I think it suits the picure. Look at her tan lines! She got them despite her daddy's aggressive spraying (and respraying!) with sunblock! :)

We finally figured out how to get B to smile at the camera: tell her NOT to smile! Man, she has too much of her mama in her!

Big Boy M

Tonight, I met up with Baby M, Mom, Dad, and their personal jester, E! :) E worked very, very hard for smiles, but to no avail! I have taken Baby M's pics since he was three months old, and Mom and Dad, my present to you for M's first birthday will be a picture with a smile! I promise~ even if I have to wear bells on my head! Even without a smile, I think these are GORGEOUS pictures. I know I said I'd only post one or two, but I just couldn't narrow it down! I love the colors, and man, oh, man, does Baby M have some blue eyes!

Mom and Dad ~ enjoy your preview!

Now, I'm off to get some sleep before our drive to the beach in the morning. :) Everyone be on the lookout for pics from the beach!
