newborn sweetness... and some siblings that are just as sweet

The decision to become a mother is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body


 


These children were a dream to photograph. The "big" sisters cooperated so well and well are adorable! The little guy was perfection, he slept and let me move him around all over the place.

One reason I love my job is I have the opportunity to meet new, fabulous people and watch their children grow up through my camera. This little guy is no exception. I have been photographing him since he was tiny... he is only 6 months old now.. but already he has changed and grown so much. Enjoy my favorites from this session.

Little birthday girl

I've had the pleasure of photographing this little doll since she was around three months old. What a sweetheart she is and I had the honor of photographing her on her 1 year birthday!


Happy Bday Miss Gwen.

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing this family last fall, we had  a fun session and clicked "artistically" that is always so important, if the family or client doesn't get my style then you will not like your photos. Their son, at that time, was very ill, he had biliary atresia, and I do not know that much about it, but I do know that this Spring he became very ill and went on to the Liver Donor's list in hopes of finding a new liver. His mom contacted The Little Hero Project, www.littlestheroesproject.org, an charity organization of photographers that donate their time to families of sick children, the family receives a free photo session for their Little Hero. She asked for me to be their photographer.


 


Long story short, Jax received his new liver about a month ago (my timing could be wrong on that) he is doing fabulous and is a happy and healthy baby now. I went to their house this week to photograph him and his family. I am so blessed to know this family, their strength as a family is unwavering, the courage and endurance of Jax amazes me. He truly is an amazing child and a "Little Hero"Here is the link to his website http://www.baaware.org/index.html


 


Enjoy my favorites from this beautiful session

“It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know whether you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children.” -Oriah Mountain Dreamer


 


Some favorites from this fun session. These little ones were so energetic!

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.  ~e.e. cummings
