Beautiful & Glowing

Meet Ashlee, a soon to be first time mama!
Although you can't tell in these photos, she and
her husband are indeed expecting a baby.
I swear her skin really was glowing!
Ashlee was a dream to work with and just as cute as can be!


Best Dimples Ever!

Aidan has the BEST dimples!!

He also has the best personality!
Such a mellow, laid back 10 year old!

I love his eyebrows here!

Yes, these are his own glasses. He wears them for reading and I couldn't resist having him wear them for a few photos.
They're just too cute on him!


Little Miss H

Holy blue eyed toddler, Batman!
Miss "H" Has some of the best baby blues I've ever seen!
I just LOVE when you ask a toddler to smile. You never know what you're going to get, but I always know it will be funny! This is what H gave me when I asked her to smile (as opposed to getting genuine smiles by making her laugh, like some of the other shots).


Miss E

I know "E" personally and let me tell you...she is one cool kid!
She has a great imagination and sense of style.
She's smart and clever (not the same thing).
She loves animals with a passion and plans on
being a vet when she grows up.
I have no doubt that she'll accomplish that goal!

So, the three of us (Miss E, her mother, and myself) worked
closely to style her session.
You have to admit...the girl looks adorable!

Hello, gorgeous eyes!!

Can I just say how refreshing it is to work with a child this
age who can pose with very little instruction?
What a nice change from working with my boys. HA!

Can you believe she's only 9?!

I'm so jealous of her eyelashes!


Another Birthday!

Yes, spring is the season of birthdays at our house! Four out of the five of us have birthdays in March or April.
Today is my middle son's 9th birthday!

Nine years ago today I gave birth to a screaming baby boy, who weighed in at 8 pounds, 12 ounces, despite being born a few weeks early. He was NOT an easy baby or toddler, but as he got older he got easier to handle. Karson is one of the coolest kids I know. He's funny as heck (gets that from me), naturally athletic (gets that from his dad), very creative (gets that from me), and has a LOT of energy (gets that from his dad)! He has the most gorgeous blue eyes (from his dad) and adorable freckles on his face (again, from his dad).
He is quirky (gets that from me) and confident in
himself and his decisions (gets that from both of us).

Happy Birthday, Karson!
I love you more than you'll ever know.

Yes, his eyes look green here, but I assure you it's just the reflection from all of the green trees behind me.
His eyes are VERY blue in real life!
