Minis from the weekend…

The “Y” family…so glad we got together this morning! The lighting was beautiful, the kiddos were happy and the family just looked great! Who could ask for more? Special thanks to mom and dad for their extraordinary efforts to get these gorgeous smiles – well worth it!!

The “Z” family…By far one of the happiest little girls I have ever met.  She smiled the entire time!

The “V” family…I had a lot of fun with this sweet family. Dad had a few funny tricks up his sleeve to get the kiddos laughing!

Eli

He is one headstrong little boy. He sure knows what he likes and doesn’t like. Being moved while sleeping is on his “do not like” list, but being cuddled by mommy is definitely on his “likes a whole lot” list!  He finally slipped into a milk coma and let me move him around – he even gave me a little smile! What a sweetheart. Here is a sneak peek from his newborn session…

Ella & Claire

I had the pleasure of meeting this adorable family today. This session was one of the quickest ever – done in 27 minutes!! Ella and Claire were so cooperative and full of smiles.

Maya

One year ago, I was called to Methodist Hospital to photograph a baby who was born still. Upon my arrival, I met the Wheat family. They introduced me to their beautiful baby girl, Peyton. My heart ached for them, and I will never forget the sorrow I felt that day. Fast forward exactly one year to the day later; I received an e-mail that this family was expecting their second daughter, due any day. Sweet baby Maya was born the very next day, exactly one year and one day after her sister. What an amazing story! I get chills every time I think of them! I am deeply honored to introduce Maya Estelle…
