Baby Chase

Meet Chase! I've known this little guy from day 1--he even came to my wedding! (We just didn't know he was there yet.) I've been dying to get a few photos of him, so it finally worked out to just go hang out while he played with some toys. Man, does this kid make my job easy; he was nothing but adorable!

Thanks Kelsey for letting me hang out and play with Chase- you know I just love him!

Doesn't he just melt your heart?

Oh the faces!

Once he figured out what I had, he wanted it! I had plenty of photos with this nice little grabbing motion.
Nothing like finishing up with some tickles from mommy!

The Montaninos :: Christmas Edition!

The Montaninos!

Brook and Aaron are a couple of our nearest and dearest! And you can only imagine how excited we were when they welcomed their new addition to the fam, the stunning baby Gavin! He is one of my favorites in life and I love that I get to be a part of his.

Brook has had this very lovely idea for a Christmas card for ages now. Pj's, Christmas decorations, all cozied up in's just like Christmas morning! So I, being one of her biggest supporters and all, decided join up with the idea and make it happen! I think it turned out just wonderfully!

I'll start you out with one of my favorites:

I've got sunshine...

Oh, God bless Michigan! It is a beaut out there today! I had my first ever Christmas shoot with my dear friends and their new little one and I've been just hoping for some nice lighting- and bam! We got it!

Keep a look out for the newest pics of the Montaninos. It was the perfect Christmas morning set up.

Newborn :: Ruby Lynn Julie

This is my newest niece Ruby, born on October 20th to my lovely brother and sister-in-law, Carly and Luke. Plus, this is my very first newborn photo shoot. It is was definitely a challenge. Aren't newborns supposed to sleep all the time? Ruby decided to wake up when I came over this time (the price I pay for being her favorite.) But there's no way I could be mad, I mean, look at that face!

I may be slightly partial, but I loves these! I hope you enjoy them, too!

The Schneider Family

This is my dear friend Shannon's family. Shannon and I met at Red Lobster when I was in high school and I cherish that we have remained close throughout the years.

I've been taking her kid's school photos for quite a few years now and have felt so honored to see them growing so much over the years!

This year was especially exciting as I was able to meet the newest Schneider: baby Owen! He is a doll and don't even get me started on his cheeks!

Thank you Shannon and Travis for letting me be part of this!

Photos with the O'Dells!

So, I have to admit, the majority of my photos thus far are with my niece and nephews- but oh how I love it! These are Dana and Keri's babies. Well, there not so much babies any more- but I still like to think of them as so.

You can definitely see their personalities in these photos. Aidan will be 7 soon, and more than ever, I'm realizing he is quite the realist. He is so sweet natured, too. He's becoming so grown up. Elizabeth is almost 5 and her personality is bigger than ever. Although we're not blood-related, I know she is family. She cracks me up more than anything. And those big, beautiful eyes! We will definitely have to fend the boys away when she gets older. And then there's Grayson. Oh, Grayson. His latest obsession is Yo! Gabba Gabba! Half the shoot he was singing and dancing. He is definitely his own person.

Anyway, I love them and I hope you do too! Enjoy!
