Logan was a gorgeous little newborn, who unsurprisingly has grown into a tremendously handsome 7 month old.  His smiles were infectious.

Eyes are windows to the soul.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted Hudson’s newborn portaits (and what a doll baby he is).  At one month of age, we created his first Love In Motion Film.  I LOVE these films.  They are so multi-dimensional and capture even more of the essence of sweet babies.  In this film, you will really get to “see” Hudson and you are going to love him.  As an extra bonus, you will get to see big brother Wyatt too.  Wyatt makes me smile every time I see him.  He is a smart young man and a “phenomenal” older brother.




Reagan is such a doll baby and I am so thankful that her family allowed me the opportunity to photograph the major mile markers of her first year.  I am also glad that she turned one during the spring because AZ has a very short green season and I love spring pictures.  Isn’t she so cute with her favorite bear?

Parents make the very best “props” for babies and Miss Reagan was happy as could be with Daddy and Mommy close by.

I can’t even pick a favorite of this little munchkin.  Too precious for words.

Best Days Ever

March 18, 2014

In lieu of a full photography session for my children at Christmas time, I opted to create a short film.  I filmed in January (before Troy’s eye surgery).  The resulting film encapsulates, what my son Ty would call “The Best Days Ever”.  I loved capturing these very real moments of my children’s lives and I know that a decade from now I won’t get past the opening sequence without many tears and the deep longing to hold all my littles in arms they have since outgrown (at least in the rock and cuddle sense).  This 5 minute and 45 second version (let’s call it the trailer from mama’s full 26 minute version) will give you a glimpse into the Brinkman household.  Best. Days. Ever.


Watch in HD for better quality viewing!





Isn’t this little one a handsome boy?    Cade decided to spend his last hour awake and therefore, gave me the chance to capture his eyes wide open.  Too fun!



Baby yawns are so cute.
