August Milestones!

Happy Summer, and happy celebrations!  This month we celebrated Lucy and her mermaid themed cake smash, Skyler and his Where the Wild Things Are cake smash, and Chase graduated from the Baby’s First Year with his nautical cake smash!  It’s amazing that I am so fortunate to join these families as they watch their little ones grow!  These were so much fun to do, and everyone was SO happy!  I pretty much found myself giggling the entire day 🙂  Enjoy these happy faces!  And happy birthday to Lucy, Skyler, and Chase! ♥  Amazing cakes by Cupcake Cottage Sweet Treats and Gifts

Newborns: Camille Lydia

Well, what a little cutie!  Camille Lydia came to see me recently, and oh, how precious is she?!  This was a super special session for me to capture, as I have had the pleasure of photographing the family’s first maternity, first newborn session, first year milestones, second maternity announcement session, and now the second newborn session!  Nothing speaks more volumes than when families return to me throughout the years ♥  It is such an honor to continue to watch my families grow!  Camille is just a doll, so petite and so loveable.  She is already so loved by her family and big brother, Jackson!  Looking forward to being there to capture her first year!  Congratulations, Joe, Cara, and Jackson!  What a beautiful new addition to your family ♥

Newborn Stewart

Ooooh, my sweet goodness ♥  Just wait until you see the chunk of love I was so lucky to capture!!!  Sweet newborn Stewart is just over-the-top cute, with his curly hair, yummy baby rolls, and precious pouty lips, I was pretty much swooning the entire session!   Not only was he so sleepy, so easy going, and so calm for the entire session, he also shared some amazing smiles with me!!!  It was really a photographer’s dream! And I just loved the colors mama picked out for the session, too!  Yellow is Tiffany’s favorite color, and it was so perfect for this session.  ♥  Congratulations, Tiffany and Chris!  He is just beautiful!

Wildflower Minis

What a true joy wildflowers can bring!  Everyone has had the BEST time at the Wildflower Minis this summer.  I mean, who doesn’t love flowers?!  What a lovely backdrop this provided for portraits, so much so that I’m continuing them into August!  This spring, when we tilled the soil, and planted the seeds, I had just no idea how tall and full the gardens would grow.  Now they are so tall that when I shoot from within the garden, little ones have to stand on the chair, not sit!  Pretty impressive for just a few short months of growing time!  Here’s a little peek at the sessions we’ve had on the studio property in the wildflower gardens.  These have been such a pleasure to shoot, I’ll definitely be offering them again each year!

Newborns: Morgan Olivia

This little angel has THE MOST AMAZING eyelashes, EVER.  Seriously.  Wow.  Morgan was eight days new for her newborn session, and so precious ♥  While shooting, I was immediately taken back to the moment I captured her brother, Parker.  They both have the longest eyelashes!  So beautiful ♥  I just love Morgan’s petite features, her adorable cheeks, and soft whispy hair.  She was a joy to work with, and I am loving all the teals, peaches and cream colors.  Congratulations, Jason, Jennifer, and big brother Parker!  She is just perfect 🙂

Contact Anna Bowser Photography, (she’s on facebook) and tell her I sent you! You all are more than welcome to use my property as your session background! Tell Anna to get in touch with me ASAP though – my husband is planning to mow this field soon!!! Thanks!!

Maternity: Jason + Jennifer

Oh, what a sweet family!  This session was extra special for me because I was fortunate enough to work with the Dudding’s for their first maternity session, first newborn session, and many milestones throughout Parker’s first year!  What an awesome moment to capture the excitement of welcoming a new addition to the family:  a baby girl!  This little one is already so loved, so cherished, and so protected by a very loving big brother!  Thank you, and CONGRATS, Jennifer and Jason!  ♥  Gorgeous gown provided by client, and now available for future maternity sessions!

    Beth-Ann,

    I can never express how truly beautiful the shots of my little Anthony are! Thank you so, so much for capturing my sweetheart and his happy personality! These are pictures that we will cherish for many, many years to come (along with his newborn and my maternity!) You make each session feel relaxing and most importantly such fun! Some of them bring tears to my eyes when I see how he has grown over this past year and some make me laugh with how I can see his very sassy personality shining through. Thank you again!

Newborns: Shade Michael

Little Shade came to see me at 8 days new, and he was the sleepiest, most agreeable little one for me!  I love sessions like these, where I get the chance to pose and play for hours.  And to top it off, his mama, Tayler, was sweet to keep me company during the session ♥  Nothing is better than getting to know my clients, and enjoying the session WITH them 🙂  It was a great session, and truly didn’t feel like a moment of work.  How fortunate it makes me feel to love what I do, and get to share that passion with such wonderful families.  Enjoy a look into Shade’s session, and all of his adorableness!  ♥  Congratulations, Chance, Tayler, and big sister Sadie on the arrival of little Shade!  He is just perfection!
