Meet Little Miss Nora :)

Oh what a sweet little girl!

Nora is just one of the many newborns we've photographed lately, and her Session was her first big outing!! In fact, she had just come home from the hospital the day before!!!

She was so perfect! We keep the shooting area very warm when newborn Sessions are taking place,
and she loved being all snuggled up. My goal is always sleepy shots and it's best if our newborns are under 14 days — 5-10 is perfect. 

I have to admit it was really hard for me to keep my kisses off of those chubby cheeks - I just couldn't help myself!! Nora's parents were so sweet as well - they sat back and relaxed during her Session. I think there's a big possibility they were a little tired and the moment of peaceful quiet was a nice break :)

Thank you so much for choosing us to tell your story. It was such an honor for you to place Little Miss Nora in our care at just 5 days old!!!

PS: Nora has a big sister and I have a feeling she has a very hard time keeping her kisses off of those cheeks too :)

OH MY! Meet Mr. Cuteness! (his real name is Tyler) 

It is so much fun for us to watch a little one grow over that first year - so many changes take place that you just don't want to miss.

Our BABY PLAN (sessions at 4 months, 8 months & 12 months) is the perfect way to do that! These images are from Tyler's 1 year session and we LOVE them!!!! Tyler was just beginning to walk and that was the perfect time for us to shoot. He likes to keep his eyes on me to keep his balance, but he also likes to have moments of calm like the shot of him looking up at me or gazing out the window.

This is also an age where little ones can get really animated - which of course is fun for me because I get to act like a bigger goofball!! I'm a total sucker for those grins and will do anything to get them...

To Mr. T's mommy and daddy : THANK YOU  so much for choosing us to tell your story. We have loved getting to love on you guys this past year and can't wait to do more of that for years to come!

PS: yes he has always had these dimples and the curls have just gotten better over time. Even more awesome story side note? His mommy had to sing boom boom pow to him during his 4 month session to make him happy!! So precious!!!
