Cole is One!

It’s hard to believe that a year ago I was taking this little one’s newborn images!  The first newborn session I had done and now he is one year old! Naturally we had to celebrate with a cake smash!

In the past year Cole has grown so much and I’d love to see how he looks today with that same bowtie on.  He loves to dance to smile at the girls and generally seems to keep a cool dude persona.  I ran into Amanda and Cole at the pool this summer and  I couldn’t believe how independent he was as he bee-bopped around in a float trying to play with the older girls. 🙂

His cake smash was especially cute in that he definitely didn’t know what to do with this new food group.  He loved playing with the balloons and seemed to especially enjoy when I picked up the cake and had it “dance about” – that crazy cake ;).

Happy birthday little dude!  I hope you get to eat lots of cake in your next year of life!

Milestone 2: Cole – 9 Months!

The last time you saw Cole here he was a newborn!  You remember, the cutie with the bow tie?  I mean common, how could you forget this face!  If you didn’t get to see it go check it out by clicking here!

Well now he is 9 months and a really stinker!  He is forming his own little personality, he loves to swing and once he warms up, he is a real talker!  Amanda and Jamie really have a great baby, he is so easy going and up for anything.  We spent our time together walking around Deep Run Park and I have to say, even after a huge storm, it was just as beautiful as ever.  Read More »

Announcing May & June Dates

This past year I realized something important.  This is my business and I can do whatever I want with it that will make it work for me!  It was really a freeing realization that I didn’t have to be like anyone else or emulate anyone else’s success, I could just be me and do things the way I need to in order to keep my sanity.  Deciding to choose session dates in advance that worked for my schedule and working smarter is hopefully going to help me stay organized and give all that I can to each client!  Read More »

Cora’s Cake Smash

Oh this little one.  I will never get tired of photographing and editing these gorgeous eyes!  Cora’s cake smash was everything you’d want it to be, messy, giggly and full of chocolate.  This session was the same day as our first ever dance party (to read more about that click here) and her family lifestyle images.   Once we finished outside taking gorgeous family pictures, we came in and got this little thing comfy as the birthday princess, complete with a pink tutu and a chocolate cake (extra sprinkles). Read More »
