Baby Cari

Remember this darling newborn? Well, believe it or not, she is SIX MONTHS old.  My goodness, time flies when you’re having fun.  And this little girl is having fun alright. I don’t know when I’ve seen such a smiley baby! You look at her, she smiles.  You look at her again.  She smiles again.  It’s as if she’s got a million drops of laughter inside her soul and they come dancing out in thousands of crinkly eyed smiles … Baby girl, baby girl slow that dance. Your mama wants to soak up all that cuteness! You can see more of Cari’s six month session...

Sweet baby Caroline

This darling baby girl is so loved on by her Mommy and Daddy and two big brothers! Her little room is every bit as cute as she is with glittery gold dots painted on off-white walls, minty curtains and accessories and a gorgeous, overstuffed pink arm chair! There just are no words for this much cuteness. so.very.precious. And then there is that moment when you lay bebe girl on a darling pink and gold blanket her Mommy made for her and she smiles in her sleep! I think she likes it. Look at that hair! Caroline was the perfect mix of sleep and wakefulness … an eight day old bundle of perfection. I know. You are just perfect. Baby dear, you are the most delightful gift...

Demetrius & Alexander

Because big brothers should have a turn in the spotlight when their baby sister gets to hang out in front of the camera! I’ve had the fabulous privilege of taking pictures of these boys since they were born. It has been so much fun to see their personalities emerge. From newborn sleepiness to toddlers who lived life at high speed to grown up little boys who make ME smile … little boys are so much fun! Meet Demetrius. Seven years of handsome! Passion, energy, and a big imagination … Metri has big dreams spinning in his head. And his brother Alexander.   Oh baby blues, you could charm anyone with that smile. Could he possibly be any cuter? Oh yes, he can. Wait until you ask him a question and he throws this very smile at you and says, “sure” in the most grown up little voice. You would swoon,too. Oh yes, you would. Or take him out for ice cream. Cutie...

Little Miss Adalyn

You’re here, baby girl, and even better than our dreams! So tiny. So perfect. So very, very loved! It is an amazing thing, this thing called Motherhood. The way it just takes you in and molds you into someone with so much love! And no matter how many generations of women have rocked their babies through the ages, becoming a mother still feels like a brand new miracle every time. Those precious tiny cries and the mystery of learning your language. So “sleep child of mine, while the stars shine above — I love you as much as a mother can love.” [from the book, “I Love You As Much”] Little angel girl. You have made us a family....

Family Portraits at Lake Habeeb

It was a gorgeous evening at Lake Habeeb! Warm breezes hinted of the summer days just beginning and blue water beckoned alluringly. It was an evening filled with little boy giggles and girls skipping across the grass. An evening of sand trickling through tiny fingers and watching the sun set enveloped in pink loveliness. All because two people fell in love and became a family!   “Little boys … popsicle kisses and big bear hugs, little red wagons and jars full of bugs …” “A sister is a gift to the heart” ~ Isadora...

Jacob | 2014

Jacob is a country boy at heart! Give him his favorite hat, a pair of boots, and a few tools to tinker with and it’s sure to be a great day. Tall. Friendly. And every inch a gentleman. He has a talent for mechanical things and has done an amazing job restoring two tractors!  What is it about the “putt putt putt” of an old tractor that instantly makes you feel as though you’re about to go on a hayride around the block? Congratulations on your graduation, Jacob! It was a pleasure meeting...
