Adorable little Ethan was 10 days old for his session. I met him on New Year’s Eve – a lovely day for a newborn session! He has the best head of hair I’ve ever seen on a baby, which makes the photographs all the more better! He was a delight – thanks for spending New Year’s Eve with me, little man! 🙂
Wow, what an amazing year 2011 was for me! I met so many amazing people and had a blast photographing everything from marriages to babies to kids and families. I sincerely thank each and every one of you who touched my life this year and helped me to grow my business. I’m excited for all the possibilities that 2012 has to offer, and I hope to see a lot of familiar faces.
Here’s a glimpse at my favorite photos from this year!!
Earlier this month I photographed these darling little twins – Connor and Owen – at just eight days old. They’re the tiniest little babies I’ve photographed. Owen was a teeny four pounds at the time of the session and Connor was just five. They’re absolutely precious and I’m so incredibly happy for their parents. These two are just a blessing from above. I absolutely adore their photos, and they’re made even more special because family members hand knitted several of the blankets we used!
Beautiful little Grace was just eleven days old for her session. I love her name and I love how nicely she fits into her family of four. She has an adoring big brother and two special parents.
This last one warms my heart and makes me smile — the family’s feet! 🙂
Last month I had the pleasure of meeting sweet little Joshua when he was just 10 days old. He was one of the models at the newborn workshop I attended in Durham with Keri Meyers. He couldn’t have been more perfect for us – he was our little holiday model and ended up with all of our cute Christmas set-ups. I loooove how they turned out!!
I’ve had a few other newborn sessions this past month that I’m behind on blogging. I’m hoping to get caught up on them soon!!
The beautiful Carrie is expecting twin boys — on Christmas! What a blessing! I’ve known Carrie and Neil for years and I was beyond thrilled to take maternity portraits for them. I had so many favorites from their session that it was hard to choose which ones to post. I can’t wait to meet their baby boys soon!
You’re probably all getting used to seeing Lindsay on my blog a LOT. I always love it when she calls me and asks me to take photos for her and her family. She’s 33 weeks pregnant with her second baby boy, and she is looking AMAZING! I’m sure every woman reading this is wishing they could look like this during their third trimester!
For Lindsay’s session, we opted to start with some indoor shots before heading outside to an amazing location. I really have a hard time deciding which I like best – the indoor or the outdoor shots. You be the judge!
For expectant Moms reading this – please check out my Anticipation and Arrival package. It consists of a maternity and newborn session, and a set of custom designed birth announcements. It’s perfect for documenting this special time in your life and the newness of your brand new baby. You won’t regret it! I REALLY wish I had more pictures during my own pregnancies – it goes by too fast!
And of course I have to end with a cute picture of Cole!!
Meet Lindsay. She’s very near and dear to my heart. Some even say she looks like me. 🙂
Lindsay is expecting baby number two and we got together to surprise her hubby with some photos for Father’s Day. Don’t worry, chances are slim to none he will see my blog before then! I think it’s an amazing and unforgettable Father’s Day gift. I think we captured some beautiful images – Lindsay is just glowing and gorgeous. Expect to see adorable newborn baby photos all over the blog this fall, I can’t wait!
This little cutie is gonna be a fabulous big brother!!
This next one’s my favorite. Isn’t she gorgeous?
