A New Mommy to Be…

Michelle came in to capture one of the most special times in a woman’s life… expecting a child. A beautiful glow surrounds her, and the awe of impending motherhood is all about her face. She is a gorgeous pregnant mom, and was a joy to photograph.

1 year old Alex…

Alex finished up his Bebe Collection this week with his 1 year portrait. We played inside, went out to the garden, ate some dirt, yummo, and then washed it down with some chocolate cupcake! Too much fun. Check out how much he has grown!

Anna Kate Turns One…

Sweet Anna Kate came in to capture that cherished 1st birthday portrait. We started with the plan to immolate the portraits that her 4 older siblings had done at 1 year. We decided to make Anna Kate’s portrait her own and just capture her personality instead. I think we accomplished that well. She was just too cute and had so many great expressions! Love the sweet blankie and fingers in the mouth picture!

Double the fun!!

What could be more fun than 1 year old twins??? Add some tutu’s and a couple of cakes… Yes we had a blast! Khloe & Lydia just moved to town from Indianapolis and we were the lucky studio chosen to capture this special occasion for them. Beautiful girls, and so sweet natured. Mom is quite a trooper as well. She came with a load of clothes, ideas, and a lot of energy to help chase them both down. And when it came to ordering, a woman after my own heart, loves the artistic stuff, and lots of square prints, loved it! Take a peek at these little dolls!

The Dye family

A family I love came in for some family shots and I finally had the chance to photograph their latest addition, Gavin. I photographed Drew for his first year, and his brother Gavin is just as sweet. We had fun at the lake and in the studio. Drew spent most of the time riding his favorite train in the studio and we got Gavy to snuggle up on my bean bag for some sweet baby poses. Aren’t they just too sweet? Love them!!!!

Wedded Bliss! Conway style…

I do not photograph a ton of weddings, but when I do I always have fun! Helen made a beautiful bride. I thought I’d put out a couple of my favs for their friends to see while the Conway’s are enjoying a Jamaican honeymoon. Can’t wait to print up the rest of the images. After an outdoor wedding at the yacht club on the peninsula, a fun ride on a friends beautiful yacht, we finished up at yet another club in Davidson (on the Lake). Thankfully the weather was great and the day unfolded beautifully!

Congrats Mr & Mrs Conway!

Sweet Siena

In the past 2 weeks I have photographed an Italian baby, an Irish baby, and this sweet little Brit. Her mum brought her in on her 2 week birthday. I would have photographed her when she was 6-7 days old, but I was in Florida :( . I think she has a little red in her hair because she showed me a little bit of her temper. I tell all of my mommies that babies are a little sleepier when they are a bit younger. Every time I got Siena to sleep, then had to change her pose or backdrop she would wake up. I hope she still likes me! I think I made her mad a few times. We did get some sweet shots though. Here is her “Sneak Peek”. Hope Mum like them.

A Wee Irish Babe…

Declan came in at 13 days old. Normally an older baby like this would make me work for great sleepy shots, but this little sweetie was a piece of cake. He wasn’t into curling up much, but he let me put him in anything I wanted and stayed asleep the whole time. He even loved the sling! My best 2 week old yet!!

Got Italian????

Enzo is 6 days old and the most alert baby at that age I have worked with. He woke up a few minutes into the shoot and wanted to check everything out. We finally got him back to sleep for these images! Hope mom likes them!
