Expecting a Baby Boy any time now!!

You may remember this couple from back in January when they did their gender reveal and revealed they were having a baby boy?! Now… he could be here any day! I can’t wait to meet your little man!!

Expecting a Girl!

Mom and Dad are SO excited to meet their little baby girl! Thank you so much for allowing me to take part in this exciting moment in your life! Here is your sneak peek!

I know something they don’t know!!! Well… didn’t know!!

Today I did my VERY first gender announcement session where I knew what the baby was… BUT… Mom Dad and Big sister DIDN’T!!! It was so exciting do this reveal because they didn’t have a clue! The weather could have been a little warmer but we had fun none the less! Warning… this is a long one!

First we started out with picture #2 of a 6 part series.. #3 will come in a couple more months!

Boy or Girl??

It’s a….

Miss Chelsea was not happy about the fact that Mommy and Daddy dropped an ice cream cone… so she held on tight to the pink on and kept saying “I eat it!” She was equally unimpressed when Mommy and Daddy tried to eat her ice cream.

So happy to be welcoming another adorable little girl into their family!

Thank you so much Christine, Troy and Little Miss Chelsea for trusting me to keep the secret and allowing me to be apart of this exciting time in your life! I can’t wait to meet your new little princess!!!

Baby Girl #3 on the Way!

Today I got to photograph this beautiful family as they prepare for the arrival of another beautiful baby girl! It was neat having them back in studio because their oldest little girl was one of my first newborns I ever photographed!! I love seeing how big they (all of the babies that come to see me!) have gotten!! I am so excited for Meagan and Devon to welcome another adorable little girl into their family soon! Here are a couple sneak peeks from today’s session!

Happy Easter

It’s that time of year again! Time for the adorable pictures of kiddies with cute fuzzy animals!

If you’ve ever come to my Easter Mini sessions before, you may have heard me say “I will NEVER do Bunnies!”… Well… Never say never! I did it… and it actually wasn’t too bad! Thank you to Lori who generously volunteered her bunnies for the shoot, so I didn’t have to get some and explain to my children why we weren’t keeping them after LOL. (We have had bad luck with Bunnies in the past!)

Anyways, without further adieu… Sneak Peeks!!!

Started my day with these 3 adorable brothers!

WOAH! HOLD IT! What are they doing under my feet?!

Little Miss Abigail first came to me last year at the age of 2 months for her first Easter pictures! She couldn’t even sit up! I have been lucky enough to photograph Miss Abby a number of times through the past year and I just love being able to see how much she has grown!

This little guy came in fast asleep… I was worried he would be grumpy if we woke him up but it was the complete opposite! He was SOOO happy!!

Cruious Wittle Wabbit!

Oh Miss Sydney! You’ve grown so much since last year! Sydney was my 2nd youngest baby to come last year with the baby ducks!

Thanks to everyone who came out today and thank you to Lori for lending us your bunnies for the day!

I was also able to raise $100 from the sessions today, that I will be donating to a friend and her family. They are in the process of raising money to bring their newly adopted baby girl, Eden, home from Africa!
