Newborns: Lillian Belle

Lillian Belle, a true beauty!  Look at this sweet girl!  That soft blonde hair, precious!  She was a pleasure to work with, and looked so lovely in all these soft shades of purple, pink, and cream.  I loved our session together, and her awesome parents were so fun to work with, too!  It was her parents’ vision to have her asleep on the moon, with her adorable name blocks spelled out in front.  Sounds so easy, but darling Lillian Belle had other plans!  We ended up doing a part II to the session, and were able to get that beloved shot for her parents after all!  Hooray!  Looking so forward to watching you grow, cutie pie!  Congratulations, Heather and Drew!!! ♥

March Milestones!

Are you ready for the overload of cuteness in March’s Milestones?  I don’t think so!  We celebrated Hayden turning FOUR this month, and I could seriously die for the gorgeous curls on this little one!  Isn’t he adorable?!  I can definitely see him posing for Gap Kids!  He’s SO got that cool look!  (And yes, silly faces ARE mandatory!)  And Miss Romy Kate turned the big *O-N-E* this month, too!  It was SUPER special to have her in, as her mama and I were best buddies in college (wasn’t that just yesterday?!)!!!  This sweet family drove all the way in from Abingdon, and what an honor it was to join in the big celebration for sweet Romy Kate!  LOVED her carousel themed session, too.  Perfect down to her pink toes!  The colors are all so pretty ♥  Happy Birthday, cuties!  Lovely cake from Cupcake Cottage in Daleville, VA.

Newborns: Connor James

Sweet baby blues!  Connor James stole my heart with his newborn coos, and precious baby blues!  What a doll.  His mama and I had fun planning out how to incorporate his big elephant into the session, and I couldn’t be happier with those captures!  It is such a neat idea his mama has to snap a picture of Connor and his elephant each month of his first year!  What a cool way to see how much her baby is growing month by month!  She also had some awesome ideas for more candid, lifestyle family portraits over the traditional posed portraits.  I always enjoy it when clients share their ideas with me, and push my creativity into a new area!  Such a fun session with this adorable family.  Congratulations Keith, Adrienne, and big brother Tyler on welcoming Connor James to your family!  ♥

Newborns: Talia Marie

This sweet little girl gave me LOTS of smiles at her session, and was just the best snuggle bug around!  LOVED working with all her cuteness, and how wonderful to have the opportunity to see an old Cave Spring High friend again!  (Where did the time go?  We were just cheering together, and now look at us!!!)  Shar, she is just perfect!  And I HAVE to mention big sister Solona, who was a complete angel during the sibling shots.  This darling lady is so in love with her little sister already, and was just the perfect model for me!  Thank you, Shar and Kris, for choosing me to capture your precious babies! ♥

Oooh, this darling newborn gave me some real baby fever!!! ♥  Swoon!  Lincoln was perfect for me at his session, and didn’t hardly make a peep!  I had the best time working with him.  What a dream to photograph!  He is a super laid back little guy, and made my job easy!  Such a gorgeous family!  Congratulations, Paige and John!  He is just perfect!!!  Hope to see you all in for milestone sessions throughout the first year!  🙂

February Milestones & Valentines!

Love is in the air!  February brought me lots of smiles with Xander celebrating his 4.5 month milestone, and Nora Kay turning the big O-N-E!  Happy Birthday, sweet girl!  (It really seems like she was just in to see me for her newborn session!!! Crazy!)  Also this month, we had fun with the Valentine’s Minis!  Here’s a sneak peek! ♥

Maternity: Alyssa + Andy

It is always such an honor to work with another photographer!  Alyssa and Andy had such a beautiful maternity session, and they are so excited to meet their little girl soon!  Love all the attention to detail, from the lace on her shirt and unique belt, to her father’s bronze baby shoes and her lovely braided hair ♥  When I asked where she got her hair done (because it looked so perfect!), she said she had fixed it on the car ride over!!!  Sure wish I could do that with my own hair!  haha!  Alyssa brought in her own maternity gown for her session, and it really couldn’t have been more perfect!  Congratulations to these new parents!  Looking forward to photographing their new addition soon! ♥

January Milestones!

We had lots to celebrate in January!!!  Sutter, Madeleine, and Aubrey are turning O-N-E and READY to eat some CAKE!!! 🙂  I still giggle the entire time I photograph a cake smash.  Will this messy fun EVER get old?!?!  Doubtful.  🙂  And Morgan and Isaiah both came in for their 6 month milestones, and they really couldn’t be any cuter!  Precious!  Love all these happy faces, and a huge THANK YOU, again, to Brandy at Cupcake Cottage and Sweet Treats in Daleville VA for these amazing cake creations!  Happy milestones, everyone!!! ♥
