Miss Greta

Greta's mom and I met at Forest Park to do a session with little miss G for her two year pics. She is such a cutie, gorgeous eyes. Even though she was a little unsure of me in the beginning, she quickly warmed up and then chattered the whole time. Here are some of my favorites.

The beginning

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new.  ~Rajneesh


I had the honor of recording, forever, my cousin's maternity for her and her husband. We did something a bit different and I like it. :) Can't wait to meet "baby Mullinax" and take newborn pics for them.

When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be.
James Matthew Barrie


6 days old and precious. I am so lucky to have such beautiful clients who have beautiful children.

Melody Ann

My cousin gave birth to her beautiful daughter, Melody on June 3. There were some complications and she was then taken to Children's. She is doing great now, but how scary. Makes you realize how precious life is and how much we take for granted. She is a beautiful baby girl... and I can see the love that her mom and dad have for her. Here are some favorites from that session .

Mother and daughter

I had the absolute honor of photographing an old friend on Saturday. We graduated together and had not seen each other since then, I will not divulge how long that was, but trust me it was a long time ago. :) She is an identical twin, so after our session I was able to pick her brain a bit on the dynamics of having someone who looks JUST like you and that is around all.the.time. She is just as wonderful as she was in high school and her daughter is shaping up to be just like her mom, a beautiful spirit.

Lily.

I had a session with Lily on Friday evening, she turned 1! She is such a cutie, so good and so photogenic. Her parents are amazing. I have the best clients ever. They are so loyal and that means so much to a photographer/artist. You really do "get" me and love my work.


Here are my favorites from Lily's session!

Between the innocence of babyhood and the dignity of manhood, we find a delightful creature of a boy.

I had a very very small photo session with my son last night. It was short because it was all I could do to get him to cooperate. :{ BOYS! :D


 


On two of these I used a texture by the fabulous Jessica Drossin. They are so beautiful...

Amy and company

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love.  ~Mildred B. Vermont


 


 


 


I had the absolute pleasure of documenting Amy's maternity for her. Here are some favorites from our session on Wednesday. Newborn pics to follow within the next month or so!  Thank you again to Alexanders for allowing us to use their amazing room!

Please send me your last pair of shoes, worn out with dancing as you mentioned in your letter, so that I might have something to press against my heart.  ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


A favorite quote of mine... and a favorite session of mine.
