a baby {GIRL}…

~A baby girl: one of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys we can ever know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in your world today.~

I love that Mom brought in the blanket she was gifted as a baby. So precious.

Never far away….

December 7, 2012

A quiet morning, spent with a couple with whom I could nearly ‘feel’ the strength of bond with, not only to each other, but to their new son. Just 7 days ago they welcomed a perfect little boy into the world, and watching the confidence and love they exude already as parents, I know this is one very blessed little boy.

It was a very powerful silent few moments, full of emotion, as we included Uncle Nick in the portraits. Although they are unable to meet in person, I know that Uncle Nick will be a big part of this beautiful boys life. He will never be far from him.

Welcome {SMILES}…

The days and nights the last week have been long, getting families portraits ready in time for Christmas. Having an hour or two to spend with smiling/giggling boys is so welcome, and just the ‘pick me up’ I needed. Thanks boys!!
