Give thanks for the rainbows, the butterflies....

Give thanks for the rainbows, the butterflies.... the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain, for the tree... for the baby's laugh, for the touch of a hand, and the whispered "i love you"

~ Jonathan Lockwood Huie

 

May this sweet boy do all of this and more.

Welcome to the world little one.

Congrats Heather and Frank!

All of God's grace....

All of God's grace in one little face.

This tiny peanut was so excited to get the party started that he decided to show up 5 weeks early; he was quite the surprise but he is healthy and sweet and loved beyond belief.

Welcome to the world little one.

Congrats Nick and Robin!

Moving scrapbooks....

A moving scrapbook is a great way to celebrate all the best moments in life.... make photo books, make videos, and keep your memories at your fingertips!

I love giving these to clients because it allows them to be in that moment again and again.... for newborn sessions, portrait sessions, or events.

Here are some newborn sessions just added to the website portfolio under "kids"...

Contact me for more info :)

a baby is a blessing....

.... and this little one joined my family on September 28, 2015.

My nephew Isaac is such a sweet gentle soul.  

The name Isaac means "he laughs" and he definitely makes everyone around him smile :)

 

Welcome to the world little one.

Congrats Mike and Jessie!

tiny tike... sleep tight

Let him sleep for when he wakes, he will move mountains.
— unknown

This tiny tike was wide awake... he did not want to sleep, he was all ready to shake, rattle and roll.... but.... eventually he was all tuckered out :)

Welcome to the world little one.

Congrats Marnie and John!

baby in a bow tie

So excited I finally got to use this great infant bow tie I found.... such a dapper lil don :)

I got to see their mom grow from a little girl to a teacher to now a mom of two... So happy I got to be a part of this. Boy #1 loved to show me his new brother and look at the camera but not sit for the camera with his new brother (who has time for that when you are a toddler on the go with Curious George on the tube and toy cars to zoom) but that's ok... we only needed one moment and we got it.  Look at that sweet face... too cute! And then we had plenty of time to capture the snuggly sweet squishy-ness of Boy #2.... in a bow tie

Welcome to the world little one.

Congrats Melissa and Steve!

sunday snapshot # 25

I say it all of the time.... nothing like a newborn!

To be in the presence of a little one is to be in the presence of love, joy, and the greater spirit.  It is such a great reminder of what we are made of, what we are capable of and ultimately what we are meant to be..... sweet squishy bundles of love that bring joy to others and connect soul to soul.

If we as a whole can continually strive to connect to our higher selves, maybe the anger and violence in this world would evaporate and love and hope would survive.

Welcome to the world little one.

Congrats Shannon and Tom!

Love and hope and joy.... these are things I try to seek each day.

When in doubt, spending time with children can teach us what life is all about. They are a reminder that there is something greater and that we come from a spirit of love and hope and joy.

I love a little one.... with their smushy mouths and pudgy hands.  Nothing like it!  

Got to spend some time with this new lil one and his 2 brothers.  I have known their mom since she was in elementary school, she's like family and it's so great to see how her family has grown.

Welcome to the world little one.

Congrats Andrea and Adam!
