Project Ten | February 2016

Stuck inside for another month of photos. I had grand plans for amazing photos in the snow (did you know we got 18 inches of snow this month?). But, my whiny children weren't having it. Being cold and tired preventing any sort of blizzard photo magic. Disney, I thought, would give me MORE than enough for my ten. Nope. Disney is no joke and it's HARD to even stand still for a moment, let alone bust out the big girl camera. So, we put off all other important work (and the very important naps) for some playtime on my bed. I used my remote trigger and even let the girls use the trigger to take some photos, too.

My bed is where we spend a lot of time, the three of us. My girls, like most kids, are often early risers. I am NOT a morning person. So, most mornings, we spend about 30-60 minutes laying in my bed. Sometimes we play and laugh. Sometimes they whine and fight. Sometimes they watch the iPad and I snooze. Sometimes they snack on dry cereal and I check emails. Mornings like this wont happen for much longer so I wanted to remember what our time snuggling and snoozing was like. What started as snuggling and stories quickly became goofball island. Jumping and falling and giggling. My girls are truly becoming best friends. I'm so thankful they have each other.

Claire | Newborn

Even though it took big sister Emmie a little bit of time to warm up to her baby sister and to me coming into her house, she sure pulled out all the cute just for me! I had such a sweet morning with the Ross family as they adjusted to life with a new baby. Their family of four was so sweet and I enjoyed SO much capturing these images for Chase and Amber!Grid_0245Grid_0246Grid_0247Grid_0248Grid_0249Grid_0250Grid_0251Grid_0252Grid_0253Grid_0254Grid_0255Grid_0256Grid_0257Grid_0258Grid_0259Grid_0260Grid_0261Grid_0262Grid_0263Grid_0264Grid_0265Grid_0266Grid_0267Grid_0268Grid_0269Grid_0270Grid_0271Grid_0272Grid_0273Grid_0274Grid_0275Grid_0276Grid_0277Grid_0278Grid_0279Grid_0280Grid_0281

Willa Mae

When I met Dorothy and Mike, I was sworn to secrecy with the baby's name. We took some photos that I wasn't able to share until now that Willa has arrived. I got to meet this sweet little girl a few weeks ago and share a few hours with this sweet family in Willa's "woodland glam" nursery. It was adorable! Almost as adorable as sweet Willa Mae. We were also able to grab some photos with Mike's gear that turned out so cute! Here are a few photos leftover from Dorothy's maternity session and of sweet Willa Mae! willa_17willa_18willa_01willa_02willa_03willa_04willa_05willa_06willa_07willa_08willa_09willa_10willa_11willa_12willa_13willa_14willa_15willa_16

Parker | Newborn Portraits

I love to see my clients' families grow! I've had the chance to take newborn photos of Charlie a couple of years ago, and we got some family photos while they were still just a family of 3 and now she's the big sister to baby Parker. Morgan and John have been great clients to get to know and I always enjoy working with them! Parker took awhile to fall asleep but was happy while I visited a few weeks ago to take their photos. We even snuck some photos of Charlie while Morgan fed Parker :) parker_011
