When I met Maggie I thought for sure she was the "Gerber" baby! Tell me you couldn't picture her face on baby food jars across the country.

Chase and Kate.

I love the opportunity to work with older kids just as much as babies. These turned out very "classic". I loved how they turned out.

Awww...I'm feeling a little nostalgic.

Lola 2 years ago at Halloween she was around 18 months old. Isn't this freakin' hilarious? Under that wig she barely had any hair. It took several weeks of convincing to even let me put that wig near her let alone on her! She was THE cutest Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz EVER!!!

This was a reshoot...

some things happen for a reason....I'm so glad I had another chance to shoot Zack.

A power session....

I had such a great time shooting all of these kids at this awesome location. I may have to sneak back here again!

Meet Bryce!

Wow! She was so beautiful and such a little spitfire. I loved working with her and her mom.

Meet Charlie!

One of the easiest editing jobs I've had. She's one of the most cutest kids I've photographed. Her name, Charlie, fits her and her personality. She's sooooo cute.

I tried some different processing here. A little less traditional and a little bit of funkiness. I hope Mom and Dad like it. I'm always afraid to branch out to stuff I like with customers (normally I just save that for pictures of Lola) because I'm afraid they'll look at them and think "OMG, what the heck is this!" We'll see. Anywho I had fun with Charlie!

Yes his eyes are THAT blue!

That's Griffin. Look at those eyes. He's a complete natural in front of the camera. Something about having a baby brother fascinates Lola. She was with me at this session and she thought Griffin was her new baby brother. Now she's asked me before when I've done sessions with baby boys but it never gets any less funny. How do you explain to a 3 year old that you don't just go to the store and pick up milk, cheese, bread and baby brother? Oh if it were only that easy. =D

Lola's Halloween Costume! I was so excited to see them offering extended sizes because I love this one!

Maternity shoots....

always makes me miss being pregnant. Weird I know. ;D

Meet Julia!

How could you say no to a face like that? And look at those eyes! So Sweet.

Is this a hairy eyeball or what?

I giggle everytime I see this picture. It's perfect for a Christmas Card, "You better have a Merry Christmas or ELSE!"

Soooo far behind.

I had my monitor calibrated. Let me tell you it's been a process. Calibrating, order test prints, calibrating, ordering test prints. So I got a bit behind on my sessions and hence my blog. Here are some from my recent sessions:
