Welcome, Cohen!

September 26, 2013

Absolute perfection, that’s how this session has to be defined! A precious family with the miracle of their new addition, Mr.Cohen! There’s not a whole lot of “firsts” that happen for me anymore in my sessions after doing this for so many years; however, yesterday’s newborn session was a “first” in that the entire session was shot outdoors in my backyard! Loved that Cohen’s Mom and Dad were open to doing shots outdoors. I think it makes this session so beautiful and very unique. I tell parents all the time that the happiest my newborns usually are is if we can get them outdoors. For obvious weather reasons, this cannot happen at every session; but, I’d encourage those of you that have babies during the nice weather to consider do many shots outdoors. The babies truly  love it! Cohen was so happy the entire afternoon and barely made a sound-quite impressive since he is already 2 weeks old and getting past the “sleepy” stage a bit. I am sooo thrilled for this beautiful family. What a beautiful gift God has given you in Cohen. Thank you for sharing these special moments with me and allowing me to capture your joy! :)  Can I just say how much I love these brother shots? Big brother Cole was amazing with all of his shots-so many precious ones and too many to showcase here. He is just darling and I could eat him up! I know he is thrilled to have a little brother…esp when the ultrasound said he was getting a baby sister!! Whoops! HA. Love it! :) 

Mays is Sitting and Smiling!

September 19, 2013

I just LOVE this sweet baby girl! Aww, I really could’ve just sat and snuggled up on her all night long. And played with her beautiful hair, and made these pretty eyes just shine when we would make her laugh! But, I had a job to do, and it wasn’t all that bad. :) I have had the joy of photographing little Mays since she was in her Mommy’s tummy months ago; and, what a doll she has turned into. I always love working with Logan, Simone and now baby Mays! Thanks for a fun evening guys, as always! Mays is quite the little charmer, she absolutely has my heart! :)

Oh these lashes!! My goodness!

Ian, AHS Class of 2014…

September 17, 2013

What an exciting time of life! Ian is a Senior, and his last year of high school is flying by quickly! We had a great time meeting up last night, and he brought along his entire family, which was great because they helped provide lots of entertainment and laughter. Plus, little sister, Peyton even jumped in on a few shots, too. Soo glad that she did because they are such a cute sibling pair. :) Ian plans to attend the University of Memphis next fall, which, of course, I think is AWESOME! Go Tigers Go!! Congratulations to you, Ian! May God always protect your path and guide your footsteps! 

Welcome, Hallie!

September 14, 2013

There’s been a rush of beautiful little sweethearts born lately, and Miss Hallie Claire is the newest little darling to join the world! Hallie was such a good girl for her session. She adored being outside and slept so peacefully. She is sooo pretty and so very tiny, just weighing in at 5lb 14oz the day before our session. So petite and precious, and I loved her!! :) I’ve been working with this family since big brother was a little baby himself, so it was fun to see Mr.Brecon become a big brother. The pictures of Hallie and Brecon together are now quite possibly my new favorites for sibling shots. And, there’s several more that I didn’t include in this post that are so cute. Fun times! Congratulations to the wonderful “H” family. I am so happy for you guys! Congratulations! HHesterNB05CR

Sweet Addisyn…

September 14, 2013

This adorable little angel girl is Miss Addisyn. She just recently turned two! We started our morning a little slow, as Addi-bug was a little more interested in the Gardens than in me. But I loved these first few shots of her learning about the world around her. Nothing sweeter than some beautiful big blue eyes just staring straight through you! :)  Then, she warmed up!! Love this precious smile! 

I’m so glad her mom brought her teddy bear along. The images of Addisyn and her bear are probably my favorites of the entire shoot. Soo innocent and sweet! Loved meeting this family. Such a fun morning with a sweet angel! 

Melt my heart…those little baby rolls and precious cheeks! And, don’t even get me started on her beyond cute little pout. What a sweet baby girl Miss Sarah Ellis is! :) This session was to capture her sitting and smiling. She didn’t have too many “smiles” on her agenda that morning, but we worked hard and pulled some out of her! Plus, I just ADORE her little pouty lips and big eyes when she is staring at my camera. Drop. Dead. Gorgeous!!! Big brother Clayton came to the session as well and he hopped in on a few right at the beginning. Such a sweet, sweet family! Thank you for sharing your adorable children with me. They are beautiful!

Welcome, Brooks!

September 1, 2013

Look at this precious angel! What a beautiful little boy Mr.Brooks is! :) Sometimes, a sweet baby just doesn’t want to sleep very much at his session. He just wants to see what is going on in the world! Brooks was determined not to sleep for his session-no matter what tricks we all tried to play on him! But, it was no problem at all. We still managed to capture his sweetness. Just look at the joy his Mom and Dad have as they look at him. Their smiles say it all!! I’ve been doing this for many years now, and it still “gets” me as I got all misty-eyed watching this sweet family adore their little boy. Congratulations, Blair and Daniel! Brooks is just precious, and I know you are so in love. Who wouldn’t be? Just look at that face! 😉
