This little cutie pie is all girl--she just loved changing outfits and dressing up in a tutu! What a fun session we had...she got to check out the ducks by the pond, skip and sing with her mama and explore! She loves to skip and jump, and I had fun watching and capturing it all. Thanks for an energetic session, ladies--loved it! :)

This gorgeous mama already has three beautiful daughters, but she soon will have a new experience when she welcomes her baby boy into the world. She braved the Arizona evening for our session, and happily ended up in the refreshingly cool pool. What a beautiful baby bump she has, and what a special way to remember this, her last pregnancy. It was a fun session at a fun new location--don't you just love the mountains in the background and all of the yellow flowers? I wish you a smooth and amazing delivery--I hope your little man makes his debut at a time so that I can be there to capture his birth! Keep me posted, and thanks for a fun time!!

Imagine my surprise when I learned that this sweetie mama-to-be just recently had her own episode on WE TV's Bridezillas! Just married in November and having a honeymoon baby, bridezilla is a term that I would never think to use in reference to her...she is just as sweet as can be, and so laid back! She and her hubby welcomed me into their home and were game for anything...we photographed in a gorgeous pecan orchard, on a fishing dock, with a watermelon and even in her bathtub! This wonderful couple is naturally beyond excited to welcome their little girl. I even got to look at the scrapbook Angela made, filled with touching moments detailing her journey to motherhood. It was quite the fun morning filled with plenty of laughter. I am looking forward to photographing their sweet little peapod Elora when she makes her debut very soon. Thanks for a great session! :)

This family got up bright and early--quite a feat with the young ones!--for our session in the desert. The landscape and sunrise were gorgeous, and these little guys were such great sports! How wonderful that this mama had her daughter and grandson (I know!! No way she is a grandma--those two could be sisters!) in town from Louisiana. How blessed is she to have these three gorgeous children (another one is missed back home in Louisiana) and an adorable grandbaby? Thanks for the opportunity to photograph you--I had so much fun and it was wonderful to see you!!!

This sweet little six month old has a world full of meaning and love. I photographed her in her home, beginning in the room in which she was brought into this world. On her shelf stood a beautifully aged black and white photograph of her great-grandmother and a plant that once belonged to her. It was as though her great-grandmother--whom she was named after--is there, keeping a watchful and loving eye on her great-granddaughter. I love when clients have special items to incorporate into their photographs... What a fun home for this little girl to grow up in! It was full of colored walls, different textures and exciting things to look at. What baby wouldn't love to wake up to a gorgeous butterfly swooping across her ceiling? Heck, what adult wouldn't like that? It was so colorful and peaceful looking. I would love to fall asleep gazing at that! She looks right at home sitting inside of her father's drum set, too. Grandma gave her that cutie dress, and she looks pretty rockin' doesn't she? :) Thanks so much for a super-fun session and the opportunity to come into your home and photograph your family! I hope to capture all her beautiful stages and see you again for her first birthday! Enjoy your sneak peeks...more to come...
