I was delighted when K contacted me for a boy/girl twin shoot.  So much fun!  At a tiny 5 and 6 pounds, both of them combined are not much bigger than some of my single newborns (because – yes – I have had an 11 pounder and several 10 pound babies).   They were SO easy to work with too.  I typically expect twin shoots to last 5 hours but these two helped me get the job done in 4 hours.  They loved being snuggled up together and slept peacefully that way so I tried not to separate them much (which meant sometimes cuddling two babies in my lap in one blanket – loved it.

And this is why I love a macro lens for newborns.  Love those precious intertwined brother/sister fingers.

And 5 year old brother Jack, now has his arms full!  :)

These two little Irish twins, stole my heart.


Meet Luke Alexander.  He is my cousin’s beautiful little boy (well…technically…Jim’s cousin but no need to split hairs :) ).  My mother in love (Sarah) and Aunt Barb were my lovely assistants for the day and we had so much fun posing “our” baby.  And he was sweet enough to give me a grin too!

His great uncle (my Father in Law) made the swing so we had to use it for his shoot.

My heart melted when I saw that his dad and mom (Nick and Aubrey), gifted him with the middle name of Alexander.  Last year, Aubrey lost her youngest brother…our sweet Alex.  Alex was in a snowboarding accident about five years ago and died last fall due to complications.   He was an amazing guy who we loved so much.  Why do we say “loved” when someone dies as if our love for them becomes past tense?  It doesn’t.  We love Alex.  Very present tense.   I am so glad that his first nephew will be one of many ways that we continue to remember him.   (I have to admit Aubrey – I was really hoping that Luke was going to get Alex worked into his name somehow).

Nothing sweeter than little baby in Daddy’s hands.  Love it.


Thank you Nick and Aubrey for blessing me with visually documenting Luke in his first week of life!  I loved the cuddle time and look forward to more of it!




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.

It was so nice to meet you F family!



ADORABLE!!!  Sometimes, I just swoon over these babies.  I loved getting to spend the day with this sweet family!  AND…soon I will be FILMING little Huxton too so you’ll get to see more of the M Family.

My newphew is so so so so so stinkin’ adorable!  He has his auntie wrapped already.   It was so fun putting the above shot together as it has elements contributed by several family members.  The bear rug is Sweetie’s, the log bed was made by his Uncle Daniel, the Red Ryder BB Gun is Tanner’s, the animal mounts were taken from his nursery where they hang above his crib and Papa found me that limb.  :)  Takes a village sometimes.

Was that enough sharing for ya?  I couldn’t stop myself.   I get so excited to shoot for family and I was actually nervous that my nephew would give me trouble.  He likes to be cuddled at all times and thinks about food ALL THE TIME.  Wasn’t sure if he was going to let me put him down long enough to do his pictures but he had pity on his Aunt and slept sweetly.  He is the chattiest newborn ever.  Talks, talks, talks.  I love it.

I have a special project I am working on with him this month.  You’ll have to keep tuned in to see.  I can’t wait!!!!
