Francesco turns 6 months - Baby Journey

I can't even explain what these Baby Highlights sessions do to me = MAJOR BABY FEVER. Also, it truly is such a joy and honor to get to continually capture families and their kiddos as they grow. I know how special it is to look back and see all the changes in my sweet Theo, and it is neat now for me to watch other moms do the same.

Little Francesco is growing! He was eating his foot and swinging on swings and let me tell you, this kid LOVES his mama! Check out those shades! OMG adorable and his outfit is so cool! I can't wait til this sweet little guy turns 9 months and I get to take more photos of him - but I bet his mom can ;)

Nwobodo Family - Newborn Session

It is really is so sweet to take photos for people you know! I'm so thrilled for Lindsay and her cutie family as they have welcomed precious Eli. Lindsay had her first son just weeks before my Theo was born - so we have shared pregnancy and newborn baby fears, worries and triumphs together these past few years. Eli was a champ and just snoozed the whole shoot and Josiah had some fun in front of the camera making for some adorable candid shots! Here are the Nwodobo family photos:

Moxham - Lifestyle Shoot

GUYYSSSS ... I am SO excited to show you these images! I've been dreaming and hoping and praying to give people REAL photos - like of their real true life - and its really happening!!! I have such sweet photos of my own family that were taken in our place, in our regular clothes, doing our regular thing and those photos - they just mean the world to me. I know I'll be able to look back on them and remember life as it TRULY was! So that's what I want for others.

I was recently spilling my guts about this dream and some of the inspiration I'd had, at a church event to sweet Alison. She was totally tracking with me, saying that she'd actually been wanting to plan for some new photos of her and her sweet husband, Jordan. So we talked about them - what they like, how they spend their time and we planned for an awesome afternoon at their place with my camera.

It was so exciting for me to see how excited they were for these photos. I did my best to guide them while also allowing them special time with each other. I had them ask each other questions or make confessions and relive memories. They read through a journal they kept when they first married and bought their house. They brought the family together, including all 6 of their sweet animal children, and snuggled on the couch. My favorite moment was watching them sit on the front stoop of their house and each take a moment to pray for their family's time in that home. This is what dreams are made of - love, family, coffee, a blanket on a cold afternoon and someone to snuggle close with and call your own.
