My Sweet Girly Girl!

We get a nice spring day finally and Addie wants to play outside. She keeps telling me how much she hates winter and snow and wants “pring.” Yes she does not say “spring” just yet. She is not like your typical kiddo, she wanted to play outside in her giant pettiskirt. My Addie is all girl let me tell you. The more girly the better. I just received a new blanket for newborn shoots and was dying to use it. Addie told me she would pretend to be a baby and sit in a basket for me like my babies in pictures. Well what mommy would pass up that offer! Ok a two year old just does not fit like a newborn but that did not slow her down in the slightest. We had so much fun taking pictures together even though she was only mildly cooperative! It was hard to imagine that it did indeed snow just four days later and we were out back building a snowman! Enjoy Addie’s taste of spring!

Carly’s Six Month Baby Blues

You may remember Carly from her newborn session six months ago.  Can you believe she is already six months old? I just melt looking into her blue eyes.  They have such a sparkle to them.  Carly has also got the chubby leg thing going on and let me just tell you it is absolutely precious!  Her mommy and I joked about at what age is that not a good thing but for now it’s awesome.  Carly has just learned to sit up and is still a little topsy turvey.  She did not want to lay on her back or really do tummy time.  She was not going to have it! It was all about sitting up.  This is such a fun age! I look forward to watching those baby blues learn and experience all life has to offer.  Enjoy the many faces of Carly!

Surprise 90th Birthday Party!

Sarah is just absolutely precious! I can see why her friends and family wanted to celebrate her by throwing her a surprise party for her 90th birthday. Yes you read that right, Sarah is 90! Does she not look fabulous or what! You can tell by her face she was completely surprised and did not expect anything more than a causal lunch. Several family members even flew in to surprise her.  The details were so perfect and everything looked wonderful. When cutting her cake, she commented that she did not get to formally cut her wedding cake, so after 60 years, Sarah got the honor of slicing into a gorgeous cake just for her. Congratulations on all you have accomplished and here is to celebrating many more years and memories. Cheers and Happy 90th Birthday Sarah!

Sara is absolutely adorable! Makes me miss my Grandma Gardner who just turned 95!

Itty Bitty Kylie

Ok, all babies are cute and roly but they have nothing on Kylie! She brings new meaning to squishy, chunky and roly poly. These adjectives are what all mommies want their babies to be and she set a new record within the family on both sides I do believe! I have never seen such precious lips before! Jamie and Dave you did awesome! It was so much fun getting to work with and to know this family. Kylie was a surprise and was lovingly called Baby G throughout mommy’s pregnancy. She had the most perfect pair of bloomers stating her nickname. Kylie slept through the whole session so I never got to see those peepers but sleeping babies make for divine pictures! Loved the entire family picture with the dogs included. The dogs were definitely the “first” kids of the family and have loved their new sister. Congrats Jamie and Dave. Kylie is just perfect and welcome to parenthood. It’s the ride of a lifetime.

Fallin’ Around Main Street with the Osborn Family

Would you take a look at this adorable family!  They all have the most gorgeous eyes!  Meet the Osborn Family!  Lara, Josh and Jillyan.  All I can say is that Jillyan has got so much energy and a personality that goes on for days.  She definitely is full of spunk!  I think we got some wonderful shots of Miss Jillyan for her Momma!  I had a blast shooting this family on one gorgeous November day on Main Street.
