Do you remember this dark haired beauty?  Below is Emily 1 year ago.  I had so much fun with all that hair!



She was so much fun.  Such a good natured little darling.  And she loves her brother Jaxson!

Doesn’t that sibling shot just melt the heart?  Big brother Jaxon came to see me as a newborn too – in fact he was one of the last babies born before my Troy boy.  Jaxon is so tall (or Troy is SO little) or both.  :)

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!



Rob and Cat’s little guy came and saw Aunt Sissy for his 7 month pictures this month.  Man time flies!  He started crawling within a week of this shoot so I did these pictures just in the nick of time.


Easton’s eyes are an unbelievable blue.  Love them.  I need to find a baby picture of his daddy because he looks JUST.LIKE.ROB.

Love him love him love him.



At 1 and 2 years of age, these little beauties did a stand up job during their sunrise photo session.  As usual, little girls tend to give me the best of the best grins when they are safe in the arms of love (usually Daddy’s).

My wonderful and sweet friend Erin allowed us to borrow her wishing well.
