I was so happy that fellow photographer friend Julie of Jelliebeanz Photography asked me to assist her with some newborn twins. We had a great time shooting together and snuggling these two sweeties. Brother was impressively bigger than his delicate sister. This first image of the two of them together makes that really clear. Both babies were just so beautiful and I have to admit that I was reluctant to hand them back to mom and dad when the session was over. Thank you Julie for letting me have fun with you that day!

Typically I am behind in my blogging (like waaay behind) but I think you will forgive me this time after you see some of these images from this beautiful family’s session. Sweet little Mathis Rose is the new addition and mom and dad (grandmas too) are understandably over the moon crazy over her. She is absolutely one thousand percent adorable. No make that ADORABLE with caps. Really love this baby and this family. In fact I am over the moon crazy about all of them. They are such fun clients. I had so much fun getting to know them and capturing these images for them. I can’t wait to see them all again when we do Mathis’ six month session. How much she will have changed during these next months. Enjoy!

As promised here are some images of the newborn session from the maternity that I posted just below. This little baby boy was a special treat for this family after having three beautiful girls. Oh this precious baby is such a doll. You can tell already that he will have big eyes and beautiful features just like his sisters. How blessed this family is….even if they are a bit sleep deprived at the moment. For the most part we got a lot of this:
But thankfully we did get bits of this inbetween all of that.
Being close to his gorgeous mama makes him happy. Can you blame him?
Baby in daddy’s arms and hands are some of my very favorite images to capture. Look how comfortable little Tate is.
Sibling shots with a newborn are some of the most difficult images to capture so this shot here is the icing on the cake. It may be difficult to believe but not more than 10 minutes before this shot these girls were outside riding bikes and playing. They came in all sweaty and looking like they were having fun. Thanks to Aunt Carla who very quickly got them changed and cleaned up and helped settle them into this pose. It helps that these are girls are so sweet and cooperative. Oh goodness what a beautiful little family this is.

This is a combination maternity and family session and is actually the third time I have worked with them. The first was a maternity also. And the second was for the newborn of their youngest girl. I can’t tell you how happy I was when I got an email from mom that she was expecting again (a boy this time after three girls). They are all so beautiful and so easy to work with that I pretty much did a happy dance to hear the news. This is still a catch up blog post because I am still quite a bit behind. Enjoy the pics and stay tuned because I will be posting some pics from their newborn session very soon too.
Isn’t mom just the most gorgeous pregnant woman?

I am soooooo far behind on blogging that I have to accept that I just won’t get it all done at this point. But I will try to catch up a bit and I just had to post some pics of this little guy. Oh my goodness at just four months old here he could stop traffic with this adorable face. I am so crazy about this cutie pie. Mom and dad are so blessed to have Micah in their life. Here are a few of my favorites from this session.

I have always held it against my parents that they never gave me a sister. To this day I am jealous of those that have sisters. I imagined that a sister would be someone that would be closer than a best friend. Someone to share dresses, nail polish and favorite shoes with. Someone that would keep my secrets safe. Having a sister would be like having a slumber party every night. Of course those of you that have sisters will probably tell me that it is nothing like that at all. That there are endless quarrels and jealousy and sharing favorite things was unheard of. Well, just let me have my fantasy, okay? Here are two girls who will surely live up to what my imagination always told me having a sister would be like. I love these two little girls. This is the fourth session that I have had with this family so they have a special place in my heart. This day was soooo very overcast which made shooting a tiny bit challenging. But in the end I think we pulled it off and had a really great time. Mom drove over an hour here and when they were ready to leave we cleaned the girls up and put them in their jammies sure that they would be fast asleep within minutes after getting buckled in. The next day mom told me that they never slept a wink until they got home in their beds. In fact, she said they talked to each other all the way home. See? I told you having a sister is a cool thing.
Big sister was turning six years old so I got six balloons for her. Well, wouldn’t you know it, one of the balloons completely deflated. So just pretend she has six balloons.
Little sister was turning two so she had two pretty pink balloons.
Is it a girl thing or what? The putting our hands on our hips. Totally girl.

Eleven days new. So fresh. So perfect. Tiny toes and fingers just as delicate as you can imagine. She is so sweet. I could have cradled her in my arms all day. Thank you Mom, Dad and Zach for letting me spend the day with you. For putting up with an uncomfortably hot house. For moving furniture. For the tall glasses of ice water. For the tiny diapers for my little girl to use on her baby dolls. For moving my van closer during the pouring rain. But most importantly, for letting me be a small part of your life during a most magical, special time. Here is a little peek of some of the images captured. I hope you enjoy them.

I cannot believe that six months has already passed since I did the newborn photos for this little Miss. Oh how they change in that short time. Now she is sitting and even loving to walk while holding onto mom and dads hands. Poor mom and dad are going to have an early walker on their hands I think. As usual, my summer outdoor sessions always seem to involve some crazy threat of a bad thunderstorm and this time was no exception. We had to take cover as the rain just poured down and the skies were dark. We waited it out though and managed to get some more shots in albeit on some very wet ground. Cayman took it all in stride. She is such a doll baby but no matter what we all did we could not get a big smile out of her. Such a serious little girl when the camera comes out. Still adorable and beautiful though. What a wonderful age six months is! Enjoy this sneak peek of our rainy day mom, dad, and grandparents. Thank you mom for being so well prepared and bringing so many props and darling outfits. And thanks Grandpa for being our chauffeur around the campus.

I first worked with this family a bit over a year ago to do mom’s maternity pictures. That was followed up with a newborn session and now a year later we did a “sisters” session. With birthdays only weeks apart big sister just turned five and baby sister turned one recently. These two girls put a smile on my face. What beautiful faces they have! With the bluest eyes and the prettiest blond hair they look like beautiful dolls. Baby sister is walking so I was anticipating a challenging session. What a pleasant surprise to find that she was a very cooperative walking one year old. No chasing was necessary. I loved this hay field behind their home. Such an inspiring place with the late afternoon sun. Enjoy this little peek at our afternoon together.

Call me crazy but even after having five children I still would love to have twins. So it was a double treat for me to meet these two precious little ones. They are such beautiful babies (boy and girl) born full term and positively perfect. I loved how mom and dad were just bursting with pride over their children and rightfully so. They are gorgeous! I owe a huge thanks to fellow photographer Julie of Jelliebeanz Photography . She is very talented and I could not have done this shoot without her help. One newborn is an incredible amount of work to photograph let alone two so I am very thankful to have had an extra set of hands. And also a big thanks to mom, dad and grandma for their patience, trust and willingness to help. I had a wonderful time and wish you all the best with your new little ones. Here is just a peek at what we captured. Enjoy!
Mom wanted to get some shots of babies with the blankets that their great grandma made. Each blanket was beautiful and I know they are a treasure.
