Tiny Baby....Miss T

I bought this baby carriage at a local antiques shop, and I have been thinking and wondering about how to use it. I decided to use it with Little Miss T. She is only 5 pounds, so I thought that putting her in a doll carriage was the perfect way to show how small she is!
A little grunge action.....

Oh how quickly a new baby's mood can change! These next two were taken 20 seconds apart!

I love when I catch newborn smiles!

Big blue eyes!

OMG! This little guy has the best eyes and the thickest lashes! They are so amazing!This one is my absolute favorite! I love his hat, his tie, his little smile!

Three pretty girls

I had these three beautiful girls in my studio last week.
First, this was Miss R at one year old, with cake all over her face! I love her tongue sticking out!And now she is a big girl! Miss R just turned three! Doesn't she have the best smiley eyes?

And her is her sister Miss N, at age 2!
And now look at her! She is a beautiful 4 year old now!

Now for the biggest sister, Miss A. She is gorgeous! And the camera loved her!

Now you don't even want to know how had I had to work for this group shot! If the little one was looking and smiling, then the middle one was looking elsewhere....if the middle one was looking and smiling, then the little one was being a goof! I did get to nice group shots, and this is one that I love!

The Barn is Down!

Last Saturday we had a crew come in and tear down our barn! We are getting ready to build a Photography Studio and I am so excited! I grew out of my little upstairs studio a couple of years ago! But good things come to those who wait, and we have waited and saved money to make my dreams come true!

You can flip through this album to see the destruction!


We will be starting on the new studio in about 10 days, and I will let you know when it will be done! Stay tuned for a grand opening announcement!

Baby C is 9 months old!

Time goes by so fast! Especially with my babies that are on my "Baby's first year" plan. It seem like Baby C was just a smiley 3 month old! Now he is sitting, and crawling, and still very smiley!
I was cracking him up!
Why yes....that is a real frog!
I love his big blue eyes!
I can't wait to see him at his one year session! I am sure he will be running by then!

Baby T

I met Baby T's mom a few weeks ago while he was still inside! Here is her maternity session.

He is such a little peanut! He did a great job for his photos, and barely even fussed. His parents brought along a few props to use in his session to make it more personal.Look at his little lip! so sweet!
